Long time no blog!
Today I would like to share a different kind of review, for an air purifier!
A couple of weeks ago, I had seen on Kmall24′ s instagram that they were looking for a specific audience to review products from Korean startup companies.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [Let's Join Global Marketing Panel Season 1!] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you want to get a chance to experience innovative Korean Product and receive rewards? Join the Global Marketing Panel 👍 (GMP) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ – Application Closing Date : April 19th (Fri) 6PM (GMT +09:00, Seoul Time) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ – Announcement Date : April 26th (Fri) 2PM (GMT+09:00, Seoul Time)
This is the KMP project, for marketing purposes, they were looking for an international panel to review products made by Korean companies.
It was only a handful of countries and Belgium was part of the needed panel of consumers.
I applied and I had the choice to review one product.
Instead of trying out kbeauty, I decided to try out an electronic appliance, an air purifier.
After application, I received an email to confirm I was part of the first panel of international reviewers. Pretty cool right!
It only took a week for me to get the item. KMall 24 sent the item via DHL and there was no issues with customs, which I was really surprised with!
The purifier came in a sturdy box, with a nice “thank you” message from the employees of Kmall24.
Outside of the actual box , they also provided an English version of the instruction and the metallic stand. And a small reminder on how the GMP project works.
The actual purifier was in another sealed box.
The content was :
- A plug adaptor, but this is not needed in Belgium since we have the same plug as in South Korea
- 3 filters
- A perfume diffuser in “Tropical” and some reeds
- The instructions in Korean
- The plug for the purifier
- The air purifier
I’ve never used an air purifier so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
Depending on the filter used, this is supposed to help clean the air around and get rid of unwanted smells like cigarettes smokes and cooking smells. It can also kill the bacteria in the air !
To use the purifier, you need to plug it and either put it on it’s stand or fix it on the wall.
You also need to put the filter in the back before using it. Once you’ve opened the filter, you need to use it until it’s done with.
You’ll know when the filter needs to be changed once the LED light for it lights up. A filter should last 6 months.
With the filters that came along, you should be able to use the machine for a year.
The replacement filters cost 25$, which can also be bought on Kmall24.
On the right side, you have a window you can open and that’s where you can place the perfume diffuser.
This part lights up each time you change the settings.
On the left are the buttons with the settings, which are :
- On/off button
- Plasma ion to deactivate floating bacteria in the air
- Air mode 1 which is the default setting
- Air mode 2 for higher level of air pollution
- Sleeping mode ,where you can also put an alarm to turn the machine off after an hour
- Filter replacement alarm to inform you once it’s time to replace the filter
Once you’re done setting your purifier, you can now use it!
I have been using this for more than 2 weeks now and I think I now have a fair idea on this item.
First of all, it is pretty easy to use and quite straightforward.
The English instructions also helps!
The size is not too big or too small, it’s like a small speaker and the lines are sleek.
It has a nice modern feel so l’m sure you’ll find a good place to put it at home.

Hi all, today I'm sharing my experience with WOORIDL Plasma Air Purifier (All-in-one) . I was lucky enough to be part of the first panel of reviewers for the GMP, to try out items from Korean start up companies. My selected item is Wooridl plasma air purifier. Pretty easy to use, no need for an adaptor as we use the same plugs as in Korea. There are several modes such a night mode, regular, anti-bacteria . The color on the side will change when you change the mode. This comes with 2 filters and a home perfume. I have been using it for two weeks and I'm pretty satisfied with it. The home perfume is almost empty so if you use it everyday, it will last you a max of 3 weeks. I do feel the air is cleaner and easier for me to breathe. The size of the machine is perfect too, not too big or too small. You can either hang it on the wall or use the stand with it. You can barely hear it too which is great! Turn the sound on of the video to check it. Very happy with this air purifier. I will be very sad once I'm out of filters, unless I find a place where I can get some more. Thanks @kmall24_official and @kitagmp for organizing this ! #kmall24 #airpurifier #woolridl #kmp #koreanbrand #koreanstartup
It is not that noisy as well, so if you use it at night, you’ll still sleep peacefully.
I’ve been using it for more than 2 weeks now, and the diffuser is almost done.
The scent isn’t that strong, you’ll only smell it if you get close to the machine.
Because it’s an air purifier, it is quite hard to say if there is an actual change in the air.
But I do feel my room is less stuffy when I use this. I do breathe better and cough less.
My sister borrowed this while she was sick and it helped her sleep better a night too.
I haven’t used the filter for the special fumes from the kitchen. You are supposed to use a filter until it’s done. Once this current filter is done, I will update you if it works.
I also like how the buttons are quite sensitive, you don’t need to push hard to change option.
I think it would have been nice if it were possible to turn the led light off. When you use it at night, the blue/white light can be a distraction if you like to sleep in the dark.
That’s the only point I would like to change. It this were possible, it would make this air purifier even better!
All in all I am quite satisfied with this air purifier.
It’s super easy to use and not that noisy.
It also has a nice design and I do feel the difference in the air of the room.
Kmall24 service was good too : their website is easy to navigate. My order was sent quickly and received the item in a week!
You can purchase this from Kmall24 : this cost 89USD +shipping.
Additional filters can also be bought from their store at 25USD.
Thank you again KMall24 and Woolridl for this opportunity!
See you next time!
Note : this item was sent to me for review purposes. This is my honest review of my experience with this appliance.
