So, I am sure I am not the only one that has some rather irritating allergies. I am allergic to dust, which is not that bad on day to day use, but can be a pain with big cleaning, barn chores, and lots of other activities. In the past, I’ve tried using surgical masks to help me cope when circumstances require me to go into a very dusty situation but they can actually make it rather difficult to breath which is counterintuitive when I am using it to avoid trouble breathing due to the dust. This package arrived on time and undamaged and the masks within were undamaged as well. They come in a box that it rather tight fitting, once I took the first one out I could not fit it back in.
These masks are shaped slightly differently than your standard surgical mask. They have a slight point that cups the mask further away from your skin. As a result, they are not quite as hot as surgical masks and they are already a bit easier to breath. In addition, they have a breathing value that is designed to filter particulates out. Now, be aware that these masks are designed for single time use and that is all I tested them for as a result. I suspect you could use them more than once, but I am not sure that the efficiently of the filter would not be reduced. The reviews on Amazon say that they are only designed for one time use, as does the product.
Overall, I would rate this product with a 4 out of 5 stars. The mask appears to work adequately and the set comes with 20 masks. The masks are shaped well and the elastic straps are long enough to fit over your easily and short enough to be snug, but not uncomfortable, on your ears. I wish it was more clear, however, whether or not they are safe to use more than once in terms of the filtration ability.
