Has anyone tried or regularly use a smog mask while riding? If so, do you find that it helps?

The first and last 45min of my rides are in pretty congested roads, so I was wondering if they really work....

I have never used a specific smog mask, but biking in cities with a fair amount of pollution like LA, London or Tokyo, I have definitely found that just wearing something over my face like a bandanna, or even just some T-shirt material will help on days where the smog is bad.
