This Air Purifier From Amazon Saves Me From Constant Allergic Reactions
No more stuffy noses and itchy eyes.
Over the past few months, I’ve developed unpredictable seasonal allergies. Some days I’ll wake up with a stuffy nose, itchy eyes, and a pounding headache. Other days, I’ll feel completely normal and go about my schedule without a single symptom. While I started taking an over-the-counter antihistamine to prevent these reactions, I figured I should also do something about the allergens and dust circulating through the air in my home. I decided to purchase a Levoit air purifier from Amazon, and I’ve noticed a significant decrease in the number of days I wake up with uncomfortable symptoms.
Thanks to a three-part filtration system in one compact device, this purifier captures allergens, pet hair, dander, smoke, mold, odors, and dust particles. You can choose from three different fan speeds, and it even has a built-in night light with two brightness levels. The air purifier will let you know when it’s time to change the filter, but you can usually use the same one for six to eight months.
These are all important properties for a $90 air purifier, but the nearly 13,200 five-star reviews are what convinced me to take the plunge. Many customers raved about the product’s allergy-reducing effects, while others wrote about it eliminating odors in their homes.
“I put this product in my bedroom and plugged it in yesterday. Today was the first day in weeks I haven’t had to take my allergy medication,” a reviewer wrote. “My husband said he didn’t hear me sneeze even once during the night. The air is noticeably cleaner. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.”
Another wrote: “I put [the air purifier] right next to my cat’s litter box, and I do not smell anything from that litter box unless I am very close unlike beforehand where I could smell it from across the room.”
With the recent wildfires ravaging the west side of the United States, many Amazon shoppers have also bought this purifier to combat smoke in the air. “Within 15 minutes of running my new air purifier, I noticed a difference in the air quality in the room. The air was much fresher and the smell of smoke from California’s wildfires went away,” a customer wrote.
The only part of this air purifier that may take some getting used to is the slight noise it makes, which gets louder and softer depending on the fan speed. But after having it in my bedroom for over a month, I don’t even hear it anymore. “The noise level isn’t too loud on the highest setting—more like a low white noise,” a reviewer agreed.
If you experience frequent allergic reactions or sense pollutants circulating through your home, this air purifier can make a huge difference. It’ll make those stuffy nose days few and far between.
