While COVID-19 vaccines have arrived and delivery is finally ramping up across the country, that doesn't mean that we can start slacking on the proven ways that keep us and our loved ones safe: staying two meters apart, washing hands frequently, and wearing a protective face mask.
Regardless of whether your face masks are in need of a refresh after more than a year of use or if you’re just looking to upgrade to a set of the recommended triple-layer styles, you can’t go wrong with having a few extra on hand.
One best-selling style from Amazon Canada is perfect for anyone in the family, and has a whopping 70,000 customer reviews to back it up.
What is it?
Available in packs of three, the EnerPlex Reusable Face Masks are a comfortable addition to your existing collection of face masks. Designed with a three-ply design, they feature an outer layer of durable polyester, a middle layer of cotton-blend fabric and a soft inner layer of NanoFine cotton to prevent irritation on the skin.
Ideal for everyday wear, they’re a lightweight and breathable option that guarantees maximum comfort. Since no two faces are the same, the masks are also available in four sizes that range from small to extra large, which fit both kids and adults of all ages.
Available in blue, black and white, the three-pack of masks normally retails for $27, but are now marked down to $25.
What shoppers are saying
As the number Mover and Shaker in health and personal care products on Amazon, there’s no doubt that shoppers are a fan of these soft and comfortable masks. Not only do they feature three layers of fabric to protect against the spread of COVID-19, they even hold up to the viral match test popularized by Bill Nye “The Science Guy” on TikTok.
“I'm really impressed with these masks. They look good and most importantly, they work VERY well!” said one five-star reviewer. “I did a match test as soon as they came in. Basically I lit a match, held it right in front of the mask and blew hard in an attempt to blow out the match. I did this three times, and three times I wasn't able to blow the match out! immediately bought two more sets.”
“I'm a big man with a round face. I've had a hard time trying to find a mask locally and online,” added another. “Once I found this product I referenced the handy length guide and ordered a Large. It fits great. It covers the whole bottom half of my face and the ear loops don’t hurt at all nor tug on my ears like others.”
While these masks are machine washable, some reviewers have noted that they do shrink in the dryer. To keep them in the best shape possible, your best bet will be to machine wash and lay them flat to dry.
If you’ve struggled to find a face mask that fits well, know that you’re not alone. Luckily, with four sizes to choose from, the EnerPlex Reusable Face Masks offer a comfortable and breathable fit that works for a wide variety of facial shapes.
At $25 for three masks, they may not be the most inexpensive option around, but a great-fitting mask is certainly worth the investment.
