“ Improve the quality of air in your home by removing pet hair, smoke and even house dust mites. „
I suffer from hayfever but i wasnt sure what to but but this was supposed to help. so i bought this, its cheap and it really works the air feels cleaner and i dont sneeze or have any hayfever symptoms when i am in the room with it on. Its quiet and really effective. the filter acctually does not do allot because its just a plastic mesh so any small dust particles could go through but the ioniser attaches negative ions onto the dust so then the dust is pulled onto the walls or floor etc. its really easy to use its small and theres just one switch so its just a matter of plugging it in and switching it on. couldnt be any more simple!. over all its really worth buying.
Lloyds Pharmacy Ionising Air Purifier is a great machine available from Lloyds Pharmacy for relatively cheap price. The ~1 foot tall machine works well against allergens such as dirt and dust, pollen, pet hair, smoke, etc.
I recently bought the machine to control my allergies and from what I can see, it seems to be working fairly well. The air purifier is light and easy to carry and move around. I can take it from one room to the other, some days I usually just leave it running on.
It is a simple plug-in and there is very little sound that comes from it, so surprisingly it was not too loud like previous ones I have had. I also believe the air purifier does have to be routinely cleaned, especially when it is first used.
My Own Ratings:
Easy To Use:
Overall, I would suggest buying this air purifier if you are looking for a cheap way to combat all the dust and allergens that get annoying especially for people with allergies. Those who do not have allergies should also get this to just have safer, healthier air.
I bought the Air Purifier and Allergy Reliever for 21.98 in Lloyds Pharmacy - they seem to be on permanent promotion.
The Air Purifier is compact and lighter than it looks. It is very easy to use - just plug it in and switch it on. It makes a low noise, which should be annoying but which I find quite relaxing.
It was hard to tell at first whether it was working or not, as I began to use the Allergy Reliever at the same time. However, after staying at friends' houses I have noticed that my symptoms are practically non-existent in my own home - elsewhere I occasionally suffer mild symptoms - which I have put down to the Air Purifier.
It doesn't use much energy either - I read somewhere that it uses the equivalent energy of a lightbulb but I don't know if this is true. However, in my home I have an electricity meter and haven't seen any noticeable increase in usage.
Worth going for, especially if you get the Allergy Reliever at the same time to get the combined discount.
I bought the allergy/hay fever reliever and an ioniser together, but have reviewed them separately.
I have been using antihistamines, a nasal spray and eye drops but I'm still getting hayfever symptoms, a runny nose, itchy eyes and nose, sneezing.
I went to Lloyds chemist to pick up more eye drops and saw their 'Prevent hay fever from ruining your summer' promotion.
They are offering a Lloydspharmacy Hayfever Reliever for £14.99 reduced from £29.99 and Ionising Air Purifier £13.99 down from £27.99. They are reduced even further to £21.99 if you buy both (buy one get second one half price), and the 9V battery for the hay fever reliever was just £1 but £3.99 on the Lloyds website. The poster announces 'As Seen On TV' but doesn't mention which programme.
The ioniser is quite light to carry home and packaged in a gold box with an instruction leaflet inside.
The leaflet says that the Ioniser has a dust filter which helps remove impurities from the air that's drawn in, backed up by ionisers which help reduce the irritants in the air. It releases negative ions into the air which attach themselves to pollutant particles which then become heavier than air and fall to surface where they can be removed by wiping.
Lloyds website says that The Lloydspharmacy Allergy Ionising Air Purifier is designed to improve air quality by reducing pollutants and allergy triggers that can cause asthma and allergy attacks.
The Lloydspharmacy Allergy Ioniser:
* Creates a healthier living environment Improves air quality and
so helps to reduce asthma and allergies
* Helps reduce pollutants such as tobacco smoke and dust
* Helps to remove allergy causing particles and so helps to
reduce allergies to pollen, pet fur and house dust mites
* Suitable for most room sizes (up to 200 square feet)
It couldn't be easier to operate. I literally removed it from the box, plugged it in and switched it on.
I plug it in using a spare outlet by the TV and just leave it running all day whenever I am home.
I couldn't honestly say I noticed a difference in the air quality in the house, but when I removed the filter to check if it needed cleaning there was a good pinch of dust/fluff to be wiped away after one day. It doesn't mention how often you should clean the filter so I check it every night when I have switched it off.
I have also seen evidence of the 'negative ion' part as I have needed to dust more this week.
Therefore I would have to conclude that it does what it says it does! As I mentioned in the Hayfever Reliever review I am using a combination of hay fever products so I can't say how effective it would be alone for the purposes of managing hay fever but it is definitely collecting 'stuff' out of the air so I think it's well worth having.
