Clean, healthy air, is something so many of us take for granted each and every day. Whether you are looking to freshen up a musty space, reduce allergies, or feel better about the air you breathe – this Okaysou AirMax 8L Air Purifier review was written for you.
Full disclosure: I was graciously gifted an Okaysou AirMax 8L in exchange for my honest, thorough review of their product.
Admittedly, I was excited to try this unit out. We are big believers in quality air purifiers. It’s why they were one of my 8 great ideas for how to make your home smell good naturally.
Most of all, I was hoping to have an experience with this Okaysou product that I could wholeheartedly recommend to you, should you ever be in need of cleaner, fresher, healthier air.
While I often have high hopes for the products I try, I’m also a healthy skeptic and can’t recommend something that we didn’t sincerely love.

Impressed from the very beginning
Have you ever ordered something and it was beaten beyond recognition by the time you received it due to poor packaging? You’re not alone!
That’s why one of the quick points I wanted to make was on the packaging quality. Our Okaysou AirMax 8L air purifier came boxed very carefully with rough transit in mind.
One of the first things that greeted me when I opened the external box, was their slogan, “Grab your big smile,” printed on the top of their internal box. It immediately made me feel as if I was dealing with a company that valued us as customers and our homes.
On the flaps, there is a personal message which I found endearing. It reads:
“Welcome to a new air purification world. As a young and innovative USA based company, we gather a group of passionate and creative people to make the world different. Focusing on air cleaning, we sincerely hope that we can provide a healthier and better air for our customers. And your kind support encourages us to truly believe that we can do it. Grab your big smile!
I don’t know about you but I love supporting businesses that love giving back by helping us, our friends, our pets, and our families.
Here are just a few of the pleasant surprises I found during the unboxing process.
How It Works: Basic Settings
- There are 3 fan speed settings (high, medium, low)
- There is a child lock feature
- 1, 2, 4 or 8-hour timer
- Sleep mode for extra quiet operation
- Filter replacement indicator
On the back, there is a grill which pulls air in to purify it.
On the top of this unit where you see the grills in the photo, purified air is released out.
No frills, no fuss. Just quality craftmanship.
Love is in the air!
We’ve been running our Okaysou AirMax 8L now for almost two weeks continuously. It has been set to fan speed 3 (max).
The location I chose was a small bedroom we are currently sleeping in while we undergo chaos and construction in our home! (Even more reason I was pleased to try this out!)
We recently purchased a bed, new rug, and curtains for this room. These recent additions were leaving me stuffy and miserable in the morning which is not a normal condition for me.
Add in the fact that this is an older home, and with older homes come old smells, old dust (no matter how well you clean!), and some air quality issues you really can’t control.
It is for this reason, I can say with 100% certainty that this unit works!
Since running this air purifier non-stop for almost two weeks, I am no longer waking up with a stuffy head or nose! As a bonus – you can actually smell the clean when you walk into the room.
What You’ll Love About the
Okaysou AirMax 8L
I don’t want to just run my mouth all day about how much of a difference this has made in our home. I want to share some facts with you about why YOU will love it too:
- It is extremely affordable for a high-quality air purifier. With 3 models currently available, find the one that fits your budget and home. (Currently only $88 and up!)
- Their filtration is medical-grade! Okaysou uses a true H13 HEPA filtration system to capture some of the smallest microns, down to 0.25. For you – this means less yuck and more yay!
- Sleep mode feature for light sleepers. Whisper-quiet operation to make sure you sleep well and breathe well too!
- Child-lock feature so those little fingers don’t change your settings!
- 5 year warranty and lifetime US-based customer support!
- Filter replacement indicator takes the guesswork out of when your unit needs fresh filters
- Circulates the air at an impressive efficiency speed. For 800sq.ft, your air purifier will clean the air 1.5 times in 1 hour! For 500sq.ft, you can expect new air up to 3 times per hour! The AirMax 8L is even capable of circulating new air for you 5 times every hour in a 320sq.ft room! Now that’s clean!
- The compact size makes it perfect for small rooms or small tables
- Minimalist design doesn’t ruin your décor
- They offer a 30-day no-hassle, 100% love it or your money back guarantee! Okaysou is a company that stands behind their product. Who doesn’t appreciate that?
5-Stage Purification for the Toughest Odors, Bacteria and Toxins
By far, one of the most impressive features of this unit is the 5-stage purification your air will go through before you breathe it back in.
Step 1: Washable Pre-Filter. At this stage of filtration, you can expect to trap in the larger pollutants in your air like pet dander, allergy-causing dust, pollen, etc.
Step 2: H13 True HEPA Filter. This stage is where a lot of the magic happens! It captures down to 0.25 microns and up to 99.97% of pollutants that cause irritation, inflammation, and illness.
Step 3: Antimicrobial Filter. This part of purifying your air helps eliminate bacteria that can make you and your family sick. Okaysou claims their filters sterilize up to 99.9% of these harmful toxins in your air.
Step 4: Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter. If you’ve been painting recently, added furniture, or simply have an older home – you will love this stage! Carbon is a natural deodorizer and easily absorbs toxins. You will not only feel the difference in your air but you will surely smell it! ‘Clean’ is hard to describe but you know it when you experience it.
Step 5: Cold Catalyst Filter. This stage removes your VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and other dangerous toxins. If you are a smoker, love air freshening products, cooking or burning wood – the cold catalyst filter will be your new best friend!
All of this comes in only 2 easy to replace filters.
Best of all, the average filter life is between 6-8 months!
As I was inserting these filters into the unit, there was no denying that I was holding quality in my hands. I’ve had some truly cheap air purifiers before and this isn’t one of them!
See below for the filters and how they are inserted. Also note: when the filter is inserted correctly, there will be a pull tab at the top (see photo) so you can easily remove for a quick, painless filter swap.
At an average cost of just under $20 for each replacement filter (there are 2), you won’t be spending a fortune to keep your unit running efficiently.
In need of replacement filters?
I personally recommend ordering directly from Okaysou here.
They are also available through Amazon below.
The air you breathe matters
Whether you have a medical condition that creates a need for you to breathe cleaner air or not, what we breathe in matters.
In our home, we have even focused on using non-toxic cleaners for this very reason. Every chemical we breathe in creates a response in our bodies, even if it is accumulating over time without symptoms.
The more natural we live, the more toxins, bacteria, chemicals, and junk we can filter out of our lives and out of our air, the better!
Not only will your home smell cleaner but you can rest easy knowing that it is cleaner. I don’t know about you but I find that a gratifying thought!
This is a reliable, affordable, and effective air purifier that won’t wreck your budget while it is effectively cleansing your home.

All My Love,
This sounds amazing! I love their slogan, too. It makes me feel like they really care about the health of their customers.
My mom is looking for an air purifier for my sister for Christmas (she lives in a really old home, too). I’m sending her your review! She has small rooms so this sounds perfect for her!
I’m also going to show this to my husband because we need one, too. 🙂
Pinned and shared!
Isn’t that a great slogan? I think so too! The way I was treated really makes me feel like they genuinely mean it and do care. Great customer service could never be rated highly enough, right?
I’ll be honest with you, Michelle – I think this particular air purifier would be a great gift or even one for you and your husband. I’m not just saying that because I reviewed it either. What I’m seeing is a great value for the money. I’ve had inexpensive air purifiers (in this price range) in the past and they were absolute junk! Many of them died shortly after I got them. 😒
You are such an encouragement, my friend! Thank you for your kindness, great comments, and for sharing. YOU are a blessing!
You deserve one
She does, I agree! 🙂
I’ve been looking for an air purifier. I believe it’s my next investment, as I’m tired of all the dust in the house. :/
I honest to goodness recommend this one. They are durable, inexpensive, and no kidding get the job done. Ours runs 24/7 and the difference is night and day. In the past, I’ve had inexpensive air purifiers and they were complete junk. This one is not. I hope you can get one soon. The smallest one is $88. It would help more than you know with dust especially. The air even smells cleaner.
That’s so good to hear. I put it in my Amazon cart for my next months budget. 🙂
I can understand that! I hope you love it, my friend. 🤗
Wonderful to know about this product Holly ,Thanks for the detailed explanation and pictures . I think the coming winter months this will be of great use .Will share
Hi Nisha! Thank you for sharing this review. You never cease to touch my heart with your kindness and support.
You are absolutely right – air purifiers become all the more important during those winter months where we’re running our HVAC units and not opening doors or windows. I believe it’s when a quality air purifier shines all the more. For the price of this one, it is worth every single penny!
Sending all my love to you, friend. You’re amazing! ♥
That sounds like a great idea to have an air purifier to catch odor. During the cold months, and with the windows are mostly closed. I am bothered with the remaining smells from cooking circulating through the house. And I never though of air purifier to help out for the kitchen but it should work. Thanks for sharing, Holly!
Hi, Svet! As always, I smile when I see a comment from you! 🙂
Yes! Air purifiers work amazingly well at catching odors leftover from cooking. Typically you don’t want to have them in the kitchen itself due to grease build-up but a space (or room) nearby would work wonders. They are brilliant at getting rid of what nothing else can. Like you said, especially in the colder months, they’re more important than ever! I hope you find the perfect fit for you!
Sending my love to you, my friend. You’re amazing! ♥
The sleep mode that is quieter is genious! I am a light sleeper so having less noise is great, while still being able to use the humidifier. This one sounds like a great find and if I need one then I would consider it as one of my top choices! Thanks Holly for the insights xx
Isn’t that sleep mode a neat feature? I agree with you! It was nice that they took light sleepers, like yourself into consideration. In all sincerity, I’ve been impressed with the quality of their product. I believe they are based in Canada, with free shipping there too!
Sending my love to you, friend. ♥ It’s always a joy to hear from you!
This air purifier looks really interesting Holly. I have asthma (since I have a stray cat now in the house) and maybe this would help me. Thank you for the great information.
Hi, Michele! Yes! This air purifier would absolutely help you. In fact, Okaysou has requested that I share a review on my sister site, https://catcaresolutions.com for this very reason! (It’s coming soon!) I do hope you will pop over for a visit and share some cat love with us though!
Thank you for your encouraging words. We bloggers know how much work goes into each post. Your support means the world to me! Sending my love to you & yours! ♥
I’d like to try an air purifier in my room again as the other unit was put into a different room. I’ve come across Okaysou before but I’ve never tried them myself – I’d really like to give this one a go! I like the design and it sounds like it’s super effective too.
I’m sorry the new bed, rug and curtains have left you feeling stuffy and yucky. I get the same sense with my room and it’s one of the many reasons I’d like to move, to start afresh in a newer-build property. To be able to find those stuffy-ness issues have gone and that the air actually smells and seems fresher is amaaaazing!
A super duper review, Holly. A brand to look out for, for sure. I’m now very tempted to bite the bullet and try it! I’m so glad it’s been a fab addition to your home 😄
I think you would really like the Okaysou unit, Caz! Your Levoit air purifier is quality and this one is too. As you know, that makes all the difference. Plus, the affordability of the replacement filters is a big deal as well! You could easily find the Okaysou unit that matched the size of your room. Their prices are fantastic.
I agree with you — it is amazing when the air actually smells clean! Most importantly when you actually feel better to boot. We never know what’s lurking in our air. We can do the best we can do and we still might be missing a lot. Bill and I both think a quality air purifier is a wise investment. I really do hope you will be able to move some time in the near future. I know it has been on your mind for a while.
Thank you, sweet friend, for your kind words. I’m so glad you enjoyed this review. You and I both know how hard we try to create a piece that honors the gracious gift we received. Plus, when you genuinely enjoy something – showing that is critical to someone else feeling like it’s worth their hard-earned money too. I can confidently recommend Okaysou which is a nice feeling. We’ve had ours running for about a month now and it just keeps getting better!
Sending you all my love, dearest Caz. You are loved & appreciated! 🤗
Excellent review! Thank you!
I am so grateful to hear this, thank you! It’s always a nice feeling when I can confidently recommend something. Thank you for taking the time to read. 🙏🏼
Holly, thank you so much for this extremely important information. Living with 7 cats and I myself having so many allergies, I’ve come to know how vitally important it is to have CLEAN air in our home. We just had a new furnace put in and we chose an April Air MERV 13 filter for it. It is an extremely high quality filter that leaves our home smelling so clean. We have some cats with respiratory problems and when they begin to cough we know immediately our filter needs to be changed. We try to change the filter before they cough to keep it consistent. I also use a very expensive vacuum cleaner that does use HEPA filters. We’ve tried several floor air filters but had not much luck. I am SO happy with our furnace filter. God bless you for all the work you put into informing people about the RIGHT way to live and how to live it.
Dearest Amy, amen! I agree with you wholeheartedly. Clean air is always important but there are instances where the importance becomes even more so!
April Air is fantastic. I am happy to hear that you and your husband decided to go that route. It’s interesting to me that your sweet cats begin to cough when the filters are in need of changing. We often don’t realize just how much crap is floating in the air all around us but we certainly can feel the effects!
High-grade HEPA filters definitely make a difference as well. It’s one of the reasons I was impressed with those Okaysou unit. So many “air purifiers” these days are made cheaply and it shows in their lack of performance!
Amy, thank you so much for your encouragement. Honest to goodness – you don’t realize how great the impact you have had on my life is. As someone who is her own worst critic, hearing uplifting words like yours are often the catalyst for change that switches off my negative thinking in exchange for more positive thoughts. You are so special!
Sending my love to you & yours. You are valued! ♥

The air we breathe certainly matters <3
And as I took a deep breath this morning, I also remembered how much people matter…. some in particular are special to my heart….
You are one of them. And you definitely matter!
So I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I am thinking of you and sending love and thoughts your way <3 <3
Dearest Meg, no words can describe how grateful I am for your friendship! Your words and heartfelt love touch my heart like none other. Thank you so much! You are incredibly special to my heart as well and I hope you know that. More than you realize, you are on my mind and in my heart. I don’t take your encouragement and your comments for granted.
Sending my love to you, dear friend. I hope to be in touch very soon. Thank you again for simply being who you are. You are a gem to be treasured! 😘
Never forget that you too are a true gem… and that I treasure you and hold you close to my heart <3
This sounds like a very interesting product that I need to look more into. I have issues with stuffiness often when I wake up. Thanks so much for your honest review!
Hi, LadyB! What a blessing to hear from you! In all sincerity, I think you would really enjoy one of these units. We’ve been running ours now for at least 2 or 3 months around the clock, nonstop, and it is making a big difference. There is no decrease in performance and the filters are still working well.
I hope you can find the solution to your stuffiness. Don’t forget dust on ceiling fan blades (if you have one), older carpet (or rugs) that may need deep cleaning, closet shelves or any of those less noticeable places that hide all the funk creating the sinus irritation. Please do consider one of these Okaysou units. For the price, I think we’d be hard pressed to find a more efficient and reliable little unit. 🙂
Sending my love to you & yours. I hope each of you are well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
