A face mask is a type of personal protective equipment (PPE) that is worn over the nose and mouth to protect the wearer from inhaling harmful airborne particles, including nuclear fallout. Face masks are available in a variety of styles, including disposable, reusable, and even fashion-forward designs.
While face masks cannot completely protect the wearer from all nuclear fallout, they can help to reduce exposure and protect the respiratory system from harmful particles.

I wanted to branch out in terms of masks. After reading the ingredients list, I contacted Mediheal and found out after the fact that this squalane in this is sourced from animal organs, likely from sharks who produce this oil in their livers to help them swim in deeper waters.
1/3rd of shark species are endangered and this just isn’t worth it for me. I love my vegetarian derived squalane oil, from a different skincare company, the reason I thought this might be vegetarian too, and really do like what it does for my skin.
But I was horrified upon receiving the answer and threw these masks out. Their NMF masks work better for me anyway if you’re set on Mediheal. Use knowingly.
Elevation Training Mask 2. 0 mimics the effects of High Altitude Training. When elite athletes want to improve their performance they go to high altitude levels to train. When they come back to sea level they perform much stronger, faster, and have increased endurance.
For ultra runners who want to challenge themselves on mountain ultra’s such as the UTMB (Ultra Trail Mont Blanc) and TDG this is the perfect compromise that can be used in conjunction with your normal training programme.
Training Mask 2. 0 is held on the face with a comfortable neoprene strap that over lays the air tight silicone piece that rests against the face. The multi-level resistance system reduces air flow through the patent pending flux valve system.
Training Mask 2. 0 promotes increased lung capacity by forcing you to inhale fuller deeper breaths. While using Training Mask 2. 0 the conditioning of your lungs significantly increases along with endurance and diaphragm strength.
Altitude resistance and Training Mask 2. 0 There are various “Resistance Breathing” elevations with Training Mask 2. 0 Training Mask 2. 0 comes with an all in one package set. You do not need to buy anything else other than whats in the box.
I purchased this a few weeks ago for a few reasons. 1) I’ll be SCUBA diving and want to improve my aerobic qualities. 2) I want to climb extreme peaks, living in Denver helps, but it’s not like a high mountain.
3) I had pneunomia last year and just want to improve my overall cardio health. Living at 5280, I decided to start at the 12,000ft elevation level and gradually move to 15k and 18k during the workouts.
My god, will this thing make you sweat and seriously cut down your workout time. The science of the elevation is a bit of a misnomer, the partial pressure you work out at will be the same, but with the adjustable nozzles you can strain your cardio system to probably a realistic level at said altitude.
Definatley use this with a partner or near furniture, if you go too high you will get light headed and will need to sit down. Fits very well, I do reccomend adding the head strap (it’s included) just for extra stability, especially if you workout for longer periods of time (30mins or more).
Product is great, wish UPS had not delayed my shipping, but all in all, I love this mask. Would like to see a few things: you can get other sleves and nozzles, if Rogue could carry those for customer customization, that would be neat.
Also, this mask maxs out at 18,000 feet, would like to see additional nozzles designed to go higher, up to 26,000 feet at least. Take note, if you wear glasses, they wont fit comfortably. Not a design flaw as this is made to really seal around your face.
Depending on your eyesight you may not need to worry, or wear your contacts if you must. Or make it easy and use a bike trainer so you dont have to worry about stumbling around with blurred vision.
The actual mask portion fits well and seem to work well. But the strap to keep on the head is awful. The strap doesn’t stay in a good position. Constantly falls to the bottom of the neck. Tried using a hat to add extra space behind my head to keep the mask strap elevated.
Unfortunately this did not help either. If you have the perfect head, then I would recommend it. Or if other people know of other straps I can but to replace the provided head strap.
The school our son goes to still make them wear a mask outside to run, even after the announcement that we didn’t have to use a face mask outside was instilled. I purchased this item thinking that it would help him.
He uses it indoors and it’s hard for him to breathe with it. There are other filters that we have tried with this mask that came with the product and still the same outcome. I wouldn’t recommend purchasing this item.
The 3M 7500 Series Reusable Half Facepiece Respirator Face Mask is a lightweight and well-balanced respirator. This half face respirator combines soft materials with adjustable straps to provide a secure, airtight fit.
Simply clean the 3M half face respirator between uses – there are no extra parts required to attach filters, cartridges, or a dual airline. This product is NIOSH approved for negative pressure air purifying and positive pressure dual airline applications.
The new exhalation port system provides increased durability and is easy to keep clean. The port system works by directing exhaled breath and moisture downwards, helping reduce debris from depositing in the valve, allowing for quick and easy cleaning.
3M Cool Flow Valve for cooler, drier comfort. These masks feature the 3M Bayonet Connection System, enabling connection to a variety of lightweight filters to protect against gases, vapors and particulates, depending on your individual needs.
Combine with appropriate 3M particulate filters or cartridges to help provide respiratory protection against particulates and/or a variety of gases and vapors. Lightweight, balanced design. Silicone face seal for greater comfort and durability.
Cartridges shown in image not included with respirator, for display purposes only.
Got this thing for some renovation work and for vapors during leatherworking. So far, I’ve only used it for the first thing. It is very comfortable on my giant head. Clearing and sealing it is pretty much exactly like a military-style pro mask.
So, fond memories there. But you shouldn’t need to clear it as long as you put it on prior to exposure. I had to take off a star because as soon as I put it on, I noticed a fluttering sound inside the mask on the left side.
After using it for several minutes, I took it off and noticed that the inlet valve on the left side had come off and was just floating around inside the mask. Had I inhaled it, this would be a different (or nonexistent) review.
It went back in easy enough (which may be the problem) but came out again a few minutes later. It’s a tricky mask to adjust. It’s best to do it blind (which it’s on your face) or have someone help. If you want to utilize the “drop down” capability, it’s easier since that part of the strap isn’t locked in place.
I haven’t tried this, because I don’t want the possibility of it shifting during use. Protective masks should be adjusted to fit your face and left there. If you need to remove it for whatever reason, leave the area that you’re using it in and just take it off completely.
It’s not a huge hassle. Replacement has been issued. Hoping the new one doesn’t have the valve problem. Overall, I am a fan of this system.
Mask came from China in reasonable time. NO INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED. Arrived with both organic/fume filters and particulate cover filters for the organic/fume filters. The particulate filters look like they can be gently washed, dried and re-used.
The organic filters use activated charcoal and work until all the trapping sites in the charcoal are occupied- then they must be replaced (like point of use water filters). Notes: The fume filters are mounted on the mask so that the large edge is toward the back.
Slip the 3 mounting tabs into the 3 slots and rotate about 90 degrees to lock them into position. Separate the particular filter holders and put a white filter in each. The particle filter holder/filter slides over the fume filter with a tight friction fit.
Positioning and sizing of the neck and head straps is fairly obvious. DO NOT USE WITH FACIAL HAIR THAT COMPROMISES THE SILICONE MASK. The mask parts come in a resealable plastic bag- put the assembled mask back in it when not in use.
Even better put the mask/bag into a resealable 1 gallon freezer bag. Press-Seal both bags. If the mask is not stored like this the activated charcoal will slowly fill with molecules that diffuse in from the room where it is stored until there is no more space for to catch fumes when you need it! The particle filter will continue to function.
I am a retired EH&S consultant and have used several APRs since 1978 including various MSAs, Survivairs, Norths, Scott and older 3M designs. The 3M 7500 series is by a significant margin the most comfortable to wear.
Because of the flexibility of the silicone and the feathered edge it conforms to face contours without excessive tightening of the head strap which translates into increased comfort. As a safety consultant, I have conducted hundreds of respirator fit tests over the years for dozens of clients and bring 7500 samples with me.
Often I find one or two people who don’t pass the fit test with the client’s chosen respirator but pass with the 7500. If you are an EH&S manager and have been receiving complaints about using respirators because of comfort, I suggest you try the 7500.
It is also very easy to break down for cleaning. I have used the 7500 for the last 20 plus years.
The 3M 7502 Medium Respirator Half-Mask is exceptionally comfortable, durable and easy to use. With a face seal of an advanced liquid silicone material proving a softer feel on the face, a unique head suspension to reduce tension and pressure points, and the 3M Cool Flow Exhalation Valve for reduced breathing resistance, the Professional Series is the most comfortable respirator available.
3M recommended for paint spray applications, common uses include sanding/stripping bottom paints; sanding epoxies, woods, gel coats, and fiberglass; applying bottom paints by brush; spray painting with enamels and polyurethanes; and for applying and mixing two-part epoxies.
I have a home remodeling business. I have bought many brands of half-face respirators. It was a good day when I discovered the 3M brand. The 3M brands – 6000 series, 7000 series – are very durable. The material in other brands’ respirators I have bought degrade with time, they become sticky and begin to slough off.
Not the 3Ms. The range of filters is a plus. They are easy to switch out. I always buy the P100s – effective against particulates (silicas, fiberglass, sawdust, asbestos, lead). The organic vapors filter will also block all PVC dope fumes, gasoline, kerosene, solvent, you name it.
I have used this respirator to work with hydrochloric acid > clorine vapor reactions in open air, when I had a customer who had hundred-year-old bathroom tile she wanted to save and re-use. I use these 8-10 hours per day.
I have dropped them off ladders. Other respirators cut into the bridge of the nose but not this one. And no, it is not an expensive buy. You can buy something cheaper, have it cut your nose and turn to pulp in a year, or you can buy one of the 3M models and use it for three or four years.
Soak up excess oil in 10 minutes with this smoothie-inspired Vegan Friendly mattifying facial mask. WHY USE IT? Brazilian Purple Clay helps to draw out skin impurities whilst gently exfoliating to leave the complexion looking balanced and smooth.
An Omega-rich SuperBerry Complex leaves skin feeling healthy and hydrated. Plus, a prebiotic, naturally derived from sugar, helps to maintain balance in the skin’s microflora for a healthier-looking complexion.
WHO IS IT FOR? Formulated for all skin types. Unisex. This product is Vegan Friendly, and like all ELEMIS products, it is cruelty free.
I bought this mask after being treated to a facial a couple months ago and absolutely loved the results it gave me so thought I would treat myself and buy it for home use. After using twice a week, for 4 weeks my skin looks brighter and the tone has evened out.
It does have quite a strong berry scent but I kind of like it and the fragrance doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I like quite a thick layer when applying but there is 75ml in the tube so it will last a while!.
I have normal to dry skin, so most clay masks make my skin feel tight and parched, but this Berry Boost Mask leaves my skin feeling wonderful! It feels super clean but also so soft, smooth, & hydrated.
I use this twice a week on my T-zone area only and now my pores are the cleanest they’ve ever been. No more blackheads. And I love a mask full of amazing ingredients! It’s like the purple clay exfoliates the top layer of skin, pulls out all the gunk from your pores, and keeps them clean and clear.
Then the berry oils and extracts keep your skin nourished, hydrated, and silky smooth. I like to Multi-Mask with this mask on my t-zone and the green Veggie Mask (also from Elemis) on my cheeks and down my neck, twice a week, and my complexion has never looked or felt this good.
It’s clear, bright, soft, hydrated and smooth. Absolutely my fave combo of masks now! 💜💚.
The Splendid Dirt Pumpkin Mud Mask instantly boosts overall radiance by deep cleansing pores and improving the look of broken capillaries and uneven skin tone. This bright orange mask will give a mild-tingling sensation when applied that helps increase circulation to the skin.
I have tried many products from FHH. This is my absolute favorite!!! I have had acne my whole life (even in my 40’s). I use this product almost every single night and I have never had my skin look so good! No more blackheads or pimples.
The red clay really pulls out all the gunk in my skin. Now my skin is actually able to heal itself after a lifetime of acne scars. Part of my issue was also picking at the painful bumps. Since Splendid Dirt cleans all my pores out, there is nothing to pick at.
Sorry…that was gross, but I hope it helps someone else! If you gave trouble with acne please give this a try!.
This mask makes my face feel great. There is a slight tingling feeling while wearing the mask, but that just let me know it’s doing its job! My face looks and feels great after using this mask. Usually I use this once a week, and typically on a night where I won’t mind my face being a bit red after use.
Would recommend this product to anyone with acne issues – it really does a great job cleaning out my pores.
Lightweight, with a swept back cartridge and filter design for unobstructed vision and excellent balance it is the benchmark in low maintenance respirators. With replaceable cartridges and filters, the facepiece is used until it becomes worn or damaged, when it must be replaced.
The 07179 is 3M recommended for spray paint applications in the automotive aftermarket. Replacement cartridges and filters are also available in a 3M packout 07195.
I’ve been a painter for 25 years, and I’ve tried multiple brands of respirators during that time. What I’ve found is this 3M brand is the best on the market. I usually won’t buy name brands simply because it’s just a name and most of the time the performance of the product just doesn’t live up to what it’s supposed to do.
The 3m Dual Cartridge Disposable Respirator Organic Vapor/P95 Assembly will protect your respiratory system better than any other on the market, that I’ve used. The straps won’t stretch out of shape like the other ones I’ve used.
The rubber is soft, but has a nice solid shape that doesn’t flop around. It’s fully adjustable all the way around, but as I said the straps won’t become loose after one ore two uses I’ve experienced with other brands like OV/N95 Bandit SAS Safety CORP.
That brand no matter the size would not keep any paint from being inhaled. There are other brands that work, but if you want a name brand, and this is one of those very few name brands I trust my life with, buy the 3M brand.
There is no price on the one life we all have. Believe it or not this 3M brand is very solid and is at a reasonable price, for a name brand. Protect yourself and trust this 3M product to perform very well for you.
I love this mask! I’m so glad they are abailavel again i try to order some on 2020 and 2021 and they were sold out. But now they are back. This item in particular works amazing when i cleand my bath room before with bleach and 91% Alcohol i would get a alergic reaction to the chemicals.
But i had to muscle through it. The first time i tried cleaning my bath room with this mask i was amased i din’t even get a small sent of the chemicals. My life is now more simpler thanks to this amaising mask.
The product is great. In fact, I will order another one for another member of my household. However, I have one issue with the packaging of the product. 3M should return to using an outer bag that has a built in plastic zipper and way to initially open/unseal it without using a scissors.
Then, u are much less likely to damage any elastic part of the mask if u accidentally cut the bag and some invisible elastic part at the same time. 3M, please return to your earlier plastic zipper outer bag packaging! Thanks.
Here’s the solution for workers who frequently need a respirator for job after job. It’s reusablejust replace cartridges and filters when used to capacity. Comfortable, soft and lightweight with easy-to-adjust headstraps.
Use with NIOSH-approved 3M Filters 2000 Series, 3M Filter 7093, P100, 3M Cartridges 6000 Series, or 3M Dual Airline Systems. Suitable for use against a variety of gases, vapors, and particulate hazards.
I was a dehoarding specialist/personal organizer before getting sick with maybe COVID in Feb. 2020. Whatever post-viral hell of underlying endogenous and exogenous chronic health conditions this kindled made me allergic to everything, and I was ultimately diagnosed with mast cell activation syndrome and a slew of other “you’re not going to die but you’ll be in a lot of discomfort forever” acronyms.
I was also unable to work. I used to be able to clear floor to ceiling houses all by myself, but the new allergies made it impossible for me to be in hoarded houses full of dust, chemicals, animal and human detritus—or even normal level cluttered houses with scented candles and fragranced laundry soap! While my body is not yet physically strong enough to do my work again, having this mask has made it possible for me to at least enter client houses to offer consultations.
This mask is the difference between hives, scalding skin, migraines, passing out, and anaphylaxis.
I purchased this respirator to deal with clearing out an old building structure that has an extensive amount of mold and it does the job for sure! Previously when I entered the space for a few mins my throat and nasal passages were effected, with this nothing, even after 5hrs.
It is very comfortable and easy to put on and off. My only issue was that I’ve struggled to find googles to protect my eyes after having researched a little more about mold and it going into the eyes, so I wish I had of invested in the full face.
I have tried many respirators in my line of work. This one just feels and fits the best. The only problem I have is the elastic straps wear out. Especially the head straps. If there was a way to replace the head strap that would eliminate the need to replace the whole thing.
Maintain flawless skin with FOREO Call It a Night UFO-Activated Mask; a Korean-inspired treatment to be used in conjunction with the brand’s UFO device for maximum absorption of nutrients and active ingredients.
Fortified with rejuvenating Ginseng and Olive Oil, the soft microfibre mask revitalises and nourishes skin while you sleep, so you can wake up to a radiant, healthy complexion. Experience soft, smooth skin that feels moisturised with restored luminosity.
Made in Korea. No parabens, phenoxyethanol, alcohols or Disodium EDTA. Please Note: The mask needs to be paired with the FOREO UFO device (sold separately).
When Foreo launched the UFO I admit I was really amused – the bloggers were up in arms about claims that it would replace sheet masks! Given that most of the people using it on Instagram were in their 20’s and 30’s, the UFO just didn’t seem to be aimed at them… The Millennials & Gen-Z’s make time to include their 20 minute sheet masks, isn’t that what instagram is all about? [#sheetmask at 380,000 posts and counting] So whilst I’m all for getting your beauty regime established early (I certainly began in my late teens!), many weren’t convinced that the UFO would add any real value to their regime at that price point.
For those of us in our 50’s however, the UFO’s combination of LED light therapy, sonic vibrations, hyper-infusion technology¹ and impregnated masks makes sense (I’m definitely a fan of light therapy, and have two iterations of the Talika light therapy offerings, which I’ve used on a near daily basis for nearly a decade).
Foreo now has the UFO Mini – roughly £100 cheaper – but it doesn’t have the light therapy mode. For ageing skin, I think it’s an important feature, and I also like the hand-feel of the original. You can use the UFO with any one of the seven individual masks, and it comes with one ‘Make My Day’ mask containing Hyaluronic Acid and Red Algae to ‘hydrate and protect’ your skin.
The mask itself is on a microfibre sheet smaller than your palm, and it’s placed under a holding ring on the reverse of the UFO. To use the mask you download the UFO app, connect to your device, and then scan the bar-code of the mask to start the treatment.
At first I thought Foreo were doing this to ensure you only used their products (which they sort of are), but it’s also checking which of the masks you’re using, so that it runs through the correct sequence.
I scanned the bar code of my box of 7 day masks more than once, and it didn’t seem to object to that. By running through their programme Foreo claim that you can achieve the same effects as a sheet mask in just 90 seconds.
It was definitely quick, but as the mask was still wet, and it offered me the option to redo the treatment, I did go again. And then I tipped the rest of the liquid in the sachet onto the mask and went again, twice.
I used mine every morning for 6 minutes in total, and tried the daily mask over a two week period. By the end of each day I still had very plump skin, but I think it was only practical because I was away and didn’t have to put on makeup – I think you’d need to wipe quite a lot of this off before you could contemplate plastering anything else on, as the day mask is pretty tacky and shiny… Which begs the question ‘how often are you supposed to use this’ and how practical it would be to do this on a work morning, 90 seconds or no…? The night mask has ginseng and olive oil infused in it, to ‘revitalise and nourish’ your skin.
This seems like a much more sensible time to put something rich on your skin and I found this mask more pleasant – it wasn’t tacky, and I woke with plump, smooth skin, with smaller pores. Very little seemed to have rubbed-off during the night, even though I’m using linen pillow-cases because of the heat wave.
Overall I found my skin better hydrated, plumper, smoother, with a noticeable diminishing of some new ice-pick scars (it’s a long story, I recently tried thread vein removal, and I’ll post about that soon).
Using it in conjunction with the Foreo Luna Mini 2 as part of my cleansing routine, I definitely could feel the increased blood flow, with my skin tingling for well over an hour after using both. Would I buy it again? This is always the acid test for me, as I live in two separate locations, and sometimes buy a device for both.
I’m not sure I’d duplicate this yet, though it is small enough to fit in my travel bag, and I could always leave masks in both places. I really like the additional cold function, which is lovely to sweep over the undereye area, and which I’ve certainly used much more frequently than the similar function on the Philips Visapure.
You can also extend the versatility of your UFO, if you stop thinking about it as a face-only device. Once I’ve done my face mask I use mine to put on a variety of other creams. Leaving on the face mask pad, first I put some serum on my décolletage, then using the red light, heat and vibration 7 setting (collagen boosting, heat and sonic to increase vibrations), I massage that over my décolletage and up to my neck.
Once I’ve done that, I change the light setting to green, take off the heat, increase the sonic vibrations to 10, squirt some body cream onto the mask and use that all over my arms, legs etc (the green light is for even skin tone, and the sonic part for absorption).
I like it – I really like it – and I’ll post an update once I’ve tried the other masks! ¹ What do Foreo mean by hyper-infusion technology? The UFO uses hot and cold elements to allow the ingredients on the mask to be absorbed, first heating up, then cooling down quickly for ‘cry0-therapy’ to reduce pore size, reduce inflammation etc; then sonic pulses provide massage your skin ensuring the ingredients are absorbed quickly.
At the same time as the hot thermo-therapy, the UFO lights up red to stimulate collagen production – during the cryo-therapy it turns to green light to even skin tone – and with the sonic massage it turns blue to kill bacteria associated with outbreaks.
A few side-notes: – Foreo imply you can’t use other masks, but you can work your way around it if you want to – either use it over the top of your favourite sheet mask to boost it by keeping a Foreo barcode to hand (to trigger the right programme), or alternatively use the heat, cooling, light programmes etc manually through the app.
Cold, red light and vibration 7 is really fab for puffy under-eyes – The box says that you can use the mask without the UFO, though it wouldn’t absorb as well, so wouldn’t be as effective. – You can replace your masks by purchasing new ones from Foreo, though they still work out cheaper per mask than almost all sheet masks.
– The UFO is made with silicone, making it hygienic and easy to clean after use.
Great one. One of my favorites for the UFO. I’m really pale so any redness is super apparent and I love in NYC so any antioxidant boost are great. I like to use one as needed especially during my time of the month.
I have really reactive skin and have a patch tested allergy to certain fragrance components but this does not irritate my skin. Works great in conjunction with my vitamin C (afterwards) before moisturizer and sunscreen.
Also I see a bunch of the reviews here mention that this has to be used with the UFO, yes it does. It’s an investment but it’s a great device that rolls a bunch of other expensive devices into one.
It was such a hit items that it went out of stock for a long time before it was re stocked. I seems to be having the issue of the mask sliding out half using on the foreo UFO. I later learnt a trick to squeeze out all the remaining liquid in the mask pad onto the mask for a smoother gliding experience and this way the mask is able to stay in place even after a second time.
I do not see any obvious results on this mask comparing to traditional face mask. Its still nice to use it in the morning as it only needs 2 minutes of your time as it UFO warms up during the routine.
The 6000 Series 6800 Medium Full Face Respirator has a soft, lightweight face piece material and easy to adjust head straps allow maximum comfort. Requires only limited maintenance time. Just clean as directed between uses.
No retainers or extra parts are required to attach filters, cartridges, or dual airline. Large lens provides a wide field of view for easier visibility. Lightweight, well-balanced design and silicone face seal enhances comfort, durability and ease of cleaning.
Center adapter directs exhaled breath downward to reduce fogging. Cool Flow Valve provides cool, dry comfort to make breathing easier.
Providing this is a genuine 3M 6900, it is an excellent respirator. I am 5′ 11,” about 195lbs of pure fat and it fits me very well. I purchased one about 5 years ago to spray foam part of my house during a reno.
Not knowing how to spray foam, the walls got about an R18 and the mask about an R2. Being incredibly cheap, yet thinking I’d never use this again, I sealed up the organic vapor/P100 filters in plastic and put the mask away, never to be used again.
Hello Coronavirus. Turns out the P100 part of the filters will last months, and that’s the part I need for Covid, and the organic vapor part is still working a treat as I can’t smell anything while wearing it.
I was also able to purchase a new set of filters at a pretty good price, just in case this stupid virus thing doesn’t go away any time soon, which it probably won’t. Back to the mask, if you’re buying it for Covid, yes, it’s overkill.
Yes, you will look stupid. Yes, you should absolutely use it. I asked 3 docs if it’s worth looking stupid and all 3 said absolutely yes. I use it for Costco, Target, supermarket, etc. where there are a lot of people.
It’s more comfortable than a cloth mask and provides absolute protection for both your nose and eyes. It’s easy to see out of, easy to breathe through, seals extraordinarily well and you don’t feel like you have to adjust it every 30 seconds like a half face respirator and goggles.
Unless you’re stupid when you take it off, it will protect you. I get a few looks but, for the most part, either people don’t care or they’re thinking “where can I get one. ” I have no idea and I don’t care as I prefer to look a bit stupid than projectile vomit for 3 weeks.
For less trafficked areas I use a cloth mask. If you’re buying it for spray foam application, that also worked out great.
First mask I actually been able to breath in. Can wear it for some hours till it starts to irritate my face. Usually I am fatigued by then any way. Need to keep it a little bit low and tight around the chin.
If you open your mouth for anything even just to lick your lips it can feel loose or break the seal if not snug enough. Pile on the Chap Stick before putting on mask. Also wash your face with moisturizing soap so you don’t get a face itch while it’s on.
Otherwise you may find yourself taking itch breaks where you remove the mask. One more thing — the screw on filters work great.
Helps provide respiratory protection against airborne contaminants in harsh, dirty environments. Facepiece is designed to help promote comfort, durability and stability with a firm, lightly textured silicone faceseal and strong body construction.
Helps provide respiratory protection at concentrations up to 10 x the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) when respirator is properly fitted. Sleek, overmolded/low-profile design helps to give a wide field of view that better suits compact work spaces and simplifies cleaning.
Resilient silicone face seal offers an extended facepiece life, even keeping its shape in high-heat environments. Facepiece offers numerous other comfort features including a special valve cover that helps to direct exhaled breath and moisture downward and 3M’s proprietary Cool Flow Valve that helps to make breathing easier by reducing heat and moisture.
Made to fit securely and comfortably on the head, the facepiece comes with an adjustable head harness assembly featuring polyester/spandex straps that stretch and conform. Facepiece is compatible with all 3M bayonet-style filters and cartridges to help provide respiratory protection against a variety of gases, vapors and particulate hazards according to NIOSH approvals.
The 6500QL Series features a proprietary Quick Latch design offering an easy, one-hand touch drop-down mechanism for putting the facepiece on and off while moving in and out of contaminated areas. NIOSH/MSHA Approved.
There are 3 reasons this mask is great: 1. super soft mask material results in less pain and pressure at the contact points when wearing for long periods (especially the bridge of the nose) 2. Directed exhalation flow means the moist warm air from you lungs is directed downwards.
This results in less fogging and less wetness on your face. 3. This is the big one: The quick latch system. Get it. This is the reason this mask is my go-to. I only ever adjust it once, and then I just open or close the quick latch to put it on.
It helps with needing to speak real quick, or taking a break, and helps a ton if you have hair and adjusting straps means messing with the hair. It can easily be used with gloves on and the existence on a quick latch system is what got my crew to more consistently wear their gear.
This mask would have received a much higher rating if it were not for the head strap. The face mask itself is constructed very well and is very light weight to wear. The soft silicone seal provides a very good seal and is very comfortable to wear even when wearing for long periods of time.
The quick release latch is very handy when you want to drop the mask without having to remove it altogether and the downward facing exhaust valve works great at keeping safety glasses from fogging up.
The one BIG negative of this respirator and why it received only 3 stars is the head strap. It is rather thin and delicate elastic and the plastic hooks are very flimsy and cheaply made. You have to be very careful when clipping the straps or you could potentially break off the plastic locking latch.
I would expect a much higher quality from a 3M product. Only time will tell but I really can’t see this strap holding up over the long haul. I will post another review in a few months to let you know how well the elastic straps are holding up.
It can not be worn comfortably with a helmet and/or hearing protection – think chainsaw helmet. The thick clunky strap adjustments fit just above my ears where a hard hat head band fits and where the top part of hearing protection cups cushions fit.
The standard plastic head harness on other cartridge masks with molded-in straps works. Use those and move the strap adjustments down out of the way.

For some, this full face mask might seem extreme. But you try combining a decent mask with goggles – I have found no comfortable combination. This mask is the proper job. Excellent vision and honestly so comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing it.
No issues with fogging that I have experienced with a few hours of use.
After using 1/2 face respirators for years, I was very impressed how well this 3M full face respirator fit and enabled me to work under tight spaces while eliminating the eye protection concern. A clear view with no fog up was a big plus.

We purchased this for some very mild home renovations (specifically to use the product Vamoose which has a conversion odor while doing its job). I took a guess as to what filters we needed getting both the OV/P100 cartridge and the circle N100 pink circle filters.
The cartridges turned out to be perfect. Not only could we not detect an iota of the Vamoose, but we couldn’t smell or have any reaction to the very intense mold smell in the basement. I have serious allergies that are activated in outside air (potentially deadly) and these filters also protect my lungs when leaving the house.
After wearing it so often it became clear there are all sorts of smells filtered, from bleach cleaners to skunk to normal household scents (which drive me nuts). We just left a hospital for a visit today and when my daughter took hers off she remarked she never really smelled how a hospital smells until she did.
She smelled nothing and then the ambient air when she took the mask off which hit her pretty hard. So not only would we buy this again, we did (and plan on buying two more). That said, this isn’t a perfect mask.
you have to cinch it to some degree of tightness. There is a seal test (two) you can use which are pretty good. I cinch less tightly if I am just going outside versus more tightly if I’m going in the basement or using a serious chemical.
I get about 2 hours before my nose bridge starts to hurt and four before that mask absolutely has to come off (we measured today in the hospital). If you wear the mask for long periods day after day it will start to cause some temporary damage to your skin (abraising the skin, causing swelling).
I usually take it on and off as I go in and out of the house so I think those little breaks make a big difference because I can wear it for 4-6 hours in a day with these breaks without super cinching.
(I will be dead serious though, when you work with key chemicals don’t skimp on the cinch). If I had to go back in time and purchase I might have tried the full mask instead of the half mask. My big concern is that a full mask would not account for my glasses and my glasses sit on these with ease.
(we are also able to wear goggles). If you are wearing this for covid protection, the thing you have to keep in mind is that the thing that makes it easy to breathe is the exhalation valve and that does NOT have a filter on it.
We put a blue surgical mask over the exhalation filter if we are going around others but it definitely isn’t the greatest solution so I recommend really working to find a good mask solution for the exhalation filter.
3M 6200 Half Facepiece Resusable Respirator, Medium: I’m so glad that I already had this and #2297 filters for use in my plastic model kit making hobby. It’s a must-have for airbrush painting & lacquering.
When the pandemic broke out I didn’t have to scramble to find a mask. It fits well. And it’s wearable for several hours at a time. The one unawarded star is for the quarter sized white rubber disks that serve as the valves to prevent exhaled air going back out thru the filters.
They eventually start to make a loud ‘click’ on each exhaled breath. Thoroughly washing out the entire unit as 3M suggests solves the issue for a short time. Unfortunately, I can only find replacement discs in big quantities, for a big price.
It’s cheaper to buy an entire new unit – which I’ve done, twice.
The respirator is used with removable vapor cartridges or particulate filters. This makes it ideal for both industrial and household use. If you can’t stand the idea of foot fungus and/or cigarette tar turned to gas in carpet cleaning vapor, this is your new best friend.
Most women will wear the medium size. If you sand your own furniture, cars, etc. this inexpensive product is your next step to saving yourself from potentially toxic products. I speak as a woman who once sanded a garbage coffee table and found out quickly that its previous owner had an extreme fondness for marijuana.
No mask=no driving that day and postponing employment interviews for even longer. EBay has cartridges and filters from 3M. The vapor cartridges will even filter out COVID-19. This product could save your life if you have a sick family member.

I have had other masks but this is by far the best. This is the second GVS mask I have bought for building my house. The design fits the contours of your face without any leaks and enables you to breath easily.
I have and will be using them for painting my ceilings and walls using a paint sprayer. More recently, and because I am a plasterer with 2-L plates on my back, this mask is perfect for wearing whilst sanding the walls and ceilings flat after plastering.
My old mask cleaned up well after spray painting, and just needed new filters which are easy to fit. The new mask is similar and expect long life and performance.
I was removing two tiled fireplace surrounds in a Victorian house. Really really dusty work. For the first fireplace I used a cheaper disposable mask and by the time I finished my nose was black from the dust that had found its way into the mask.
I bought this one because the reviews indicated a good seal and importantly glasses wouldn’t fog up. It worked perfectly. Wore it for about 4 hours without a break without any discomfort or trouble breathing and my glasses never fogged up.
The area covered by the mask was completely clean and clear of dust after a full days work, and not surprisingly the two filters was black with dust, so it had done its job. Easy to clean, and I vacuumed the filter for a second use, as replacements aren’t cheap, but don’t recommend you do this, even though the mask continued to work well.
I’ve now bought new ones!! Great piece of safety equipment at a great price. No hesitation in recommending this mask. Only wish the filters were a bit cheaper :).

Tips & Advice This face mask is CE marked and can help reduce the spread of viruses.
We’ve had lots of The Body Doctor products over the past 2 years – the AB Masks in particular. There are no masks as good as these. So much so, we bought them for all of our loved ones. The customer service is exceptional and I’ve never once gone out without feeling comfortable and secure in their masks.
We have vulnerable family members and these amazing products have continued to protect us and the fog wipes have been great for the glasses wearers amongst us. Can’t recommend them enough! Why anyone would by cheaply made paper masks, instead of buying the exceptional Body Doctor AB masks, from a lovely, family run British brand, I’ll never know.
Thanks for the brilliant service over the past 2 years and helping to protect my family.
I now own so many mask (bought and homemade) in my quest to find some that really work for me. Well, I wore my Ab mask for the first time today and was able to keep it on for over 4 hours in and out of shops, walking in the streets etc without any discomfort whatsoever.
Breathability is excellent, the nose piece moulds well so my specs didn’t steam up, although I did invest in an anti fog cloth as well. Certainly one of the most comfortable I’ve worn the past 2 years.
I bought 2 masks, one for my husband and intended to use them on a (now cancelled) long haul flight but at least I know they will be very suitable for that. Will have to order some more! I would definitely recommend, especially at such a reduced price too!.
It’s hard top think of anything I dislike about the product ( face masks and accessories The masks are comfortable, durable, adjustable and easy to wear. “Which!” have rated them highly in their tests.
They have a high filtration effectiveness ( very high amongst the brands that tested). They only missed out on a “Which1” Best Buy, because they thought the Breathability was not so good, but we haven’t found this to be the case.
The fabric is washable, anti-bacterial and wears well. They also sell a newer mask which has an anti-viral material, which presumably has some effect of reducing viral transmission. All masks come with a drawstring bag to keep the mask in when, temporarily not in use.
The masks have a pouch for filters, which are bespoke, shaped to fit the shape of the mask so they pretty much cover the whole mask area. Good idea that this is, it is the only thing to raise a question about.
It is a bit of a struggle to fit this filter into the newer Anti-Viral masks, although they fit easily into the original mask. I don’t know why this should be and it is only a minor problem. All the staff are super-helpful, friendly, informed easy to contact and obliging in a way that is rare.
Some general tips on how to effectively use face masks for nuclear fallout protection include making sure that the mask is properly fitted and sealed to the face, ensuring that the filter is properly installed, and regularly replacing the filter.
Additionally, it is important to keep the face mask clean and free of debris, and to avoid using it for extended periods of time as this can lead to increased exposure to radiation.
