Thanks to COVID-19, masks have become one of the world’s most coveted commodities — even a fashion statement in some circles. Many people are rushing to buy masks, and it should be noted that N95 and surgical face masks are in critical supply. If you manage to get your hands on some, you may want to consider donating them to a local hospital instead.
If you can’t quite figure out how to make one at home and are still looking to purchase a mask of your own, here are four great deals you can shop while supplies last.
Don’t be fooled by the name: the KN95 designation is not the same as an N95 mask, but is tested to meet the standards for Chinese KN-95 (these masks are not FDA-approved so cannot be used in US hospitals). This five-pack of KN95 masks features a 3D comfort design and provides 90% filtration against particulate pollution, gases, bacteria, viruses, and most odors. They’re made with comfortable stretch fabric so they’re not a pain to wear, and they have convenient ear loops that offer a tight fit. They’re reusable, too, so you don’t have to keep restocking. The five-pack typically retails for $26.99, but it’s on sale for $19.99.
Elicto’s Particulate Respiratory Masks feature military-grade filtration technology and four-layer protection, making them capable of filtering out nearly 95% of particulate pollution, gases, bacteria, viruses, and odors. They also have an advanced microfiber filter for better protection and a flexible design that adjusts to each person’s nasal type. The 10-pack usually goes for $50, but for a limited time, it’s on sale for $44.99.
This reusable face mask is made from premium cotton and has two ear loops that stretch around your head for a comfortable fit. It’s washable and reusable, allowing you to use it again and again. The two-pack is on sale for $17.99 — 40% off the usual $29.99. You also have the option to purchase the set with adjustable ear loops for only $19.99.
While not up to par with the N95, this mask still offers great filtration. Designed for biking, running, mowing, cleaning, painting, and navigating high pollution environments, this reusable dust-proof mask protects you from dust, smoke, bacteria, viruses, and so much more. With its activated carbon fabric technology, it delivers 95% filtration for cleaner and easier breathing. Its outer layer is also made of high-quality neoprene, making it soft and comfortable to wear. Usually $39.99, it’s on sale for only $21.99.
