I had the opportunity of getting the Nosk Nasal Filters and of course I couldn’t resist not writing a review about my personal thoughts and impressions.
As I have already mentioned in my preview article effectiveness and elegance are the key points of my evaluation.
It has been certified efficient at 100% for PM10 filtration, 96.3% for PM2.5 filtration and 96.1% for PM1.0 filtration. Each filter last up to 100 hours, it is made of SMS fabric (Spunbond/Meltblown/Spunbond) and the clip is made of Polyolefin Elastomers which is hipoalergic.
Yes it is elegant, you can wear it without people noticing it thanks to its discreet invisible design. It doesn’t produce heat or moist like a face mask, so it doesn’t make you sweat either. You can speak, eat or drink freely. Each time I use it I sneeze once or twice because it tickles my nasal hair but this is a normal reaction of the body.
In my case it didn’t shield both nasal cavities well. It comes in one size only so it couldn’t fit well enough to shield the left or the right nasal cavity at the same time correctly, so pollutants could bypass the filter and enter in my respiratory system. Then as I had more filters available I shared them with some friends just to try and see if the filter could adjust on their nasal cavities better. Indeed the filters fit most of them perfectly. I would surely recommend this kind of filtration for pollen, dust and mold. As a result people who work in construction sites and need protection from dust mostly PM10 and then PM2.5 or people allergic to pollen during Spring time they will likely benefit from the Nasal Filter.
All in all it is an innovative product which will allow you to interact with your daily tasks without any problem and it will protect you from basic air pollutants. The company needs to come up with more sizes but you should give it a try as it is available in different packages of 2 or 6 or 10 or 20 filter plugs (More info at https://filtrosnosk.com). In case you purchase this kind of filtration remember to handle it always with clean hands and store it in its case because you don’t want germs in your nasal cavities.
