With the ongoing pandemic, it’s safe to say that we’re all used to wearing our face masks on the regular. However, for some of us, we still feel uncomfortable wearing them for long as it can still disrupt breathing patterns, leaving you feeling dizzy or winded. And so if you’re one who faces difficulty breathing with your mask on, and you find yourself taking off your mask every now and then for a breath of fresh air, then this Philips Fresh Air Mask might solve all your woes.
While wearing a disposable face mask might do the job, at times, it just doesn’t cut it, especially if you’re wearing it for long hours. And that’s where the Philips Fresh Air Mask comes in. Designed with three units – a customised Air Power module (with chargeable battery) an outer layer and an air filter, the mask works to provide fresh airflow for better breathing comfort while removing trapped heat and moisture. Now, while it may sound really convincing, the mask does come with a rather expensive price tag – it retails for $159. So you might be wondering: Does it work and is it really worth the price tag? Here, I put the new Philips mask to the test.
