Air purifier contains a fan, an air filter and often an ionizer or an ozone generator (the two are different). A humidifier has an evaporator to increase the humidity of the air.

I have a hepa filter I use in the corner of my room. It's a lifetime one. I only have to clean it maybe once every 6 months. For those who are looking for more info, check out this resource . Pretty informative

Air purifier is to purify the air, not increase the moisture to the air like humidifier

Hi, Air purifiers and humidifiers have distinctive capacities. Air purifiers are perfect indoor air, however, do nothing for indoor stickiness levels. They expel residue and smoke from the air, and also allergenic substances like creature dander and dust. Humidifiers include water into the air, yet don't clean it.
