New Product Review: TOPPIN HEPA Comfy Air C2 (and a Discount Code!)

Well, it’s springtime here in Central Florida once more! (Please don’t hate us – we can’t help our weather and the fact that anything that CAN bloom is already starting to.) And along with that, something else we have a hard time helping is our allergies. *sneeze*

The oak blossoms are the worst for us here. All four of us are allergic, and sometimes our reactions are triggered by something as small as a quick ride in the car.

So when Osmond from Toppin asked if I would be interested checking out one of their air purifiers, I was intrigued. Why not, right? Maybe it would be helpful!

Toppin’s Comfy Air C2 True HEPA Air Purifier arrived very well-packaged, and it literally took less than five minutes to set up and get going – anyone could do it. Points for sturdy simplicity, for sure. And check out the filter it boasts!

They’re not messing around! The True HEPA is designed to remove up to 99.97% of all particles (as small as 0.3 microns in diameter!) when the nylon pre-filter and activated carbon layer filter out smoke and odors.

The unit itself is about the size of a mini tower fan, so super easy to place anywhere around your home where you may need a bit of air quality control. It runs at an extremely low noise level, and the easy-to-use LCD panel that controls the unit will keep you abreast of the filter status, allow you to create a timer, and also adjust the fan level to different settings.
