As temperatures skyrocket, mask-wearing is getting increasingly uncomfortable. If breathing into a sweaty face covering has gotten you into a sticky situation, there’s a solution: an athletic brand, Tough Headwear, creates face masks using moisture-wicking materials to keep you cool and dry all summer long—and Amazon shoppers are clamoring for them.

The 12-in-1 Cooling Face Mask UPF 50—the No. 1 best-seller in ‘women’s headbands’—is even approved by the Skin Cancer Foundation to keep the ravaging effects of of UVA and UVB rays at bay. And it’s just $17.

Available in 11 colors, this face mask multi-tasks as a neck gaiter, head cover, headband and more. Reviewers swear by it for keeping cool in the summer. It’s designed to be soaked in cold water and then snapped, which activates cooling. It retains its chill even on extra-hot days.

“If you sweat too much while wearing a face mask, this product is for you.” writes a happy shopper. “We now have to wear a face covering at work and I sweat A LOT. Not only does this work to keep me cold, it's also very comfortable to wear...and it works for several hours.”

Runners love it for staying cool and protected in the heat. “I've tried cooling towels before, and they were ok but felt strange and clammy and would dry weirdly and crack. This was the first time I'd tried this design, and it is nothing like my previous experiences. It's comfortable, works well and is easy to maintain,” writes a five-star reviewer.

“I've been using it a lot the past few weeks running outside when it's been hovering around 100 degrees and humid in Texas, and I've cooled down much more quickly. I would be remiss if I forgot to mention that the UPF was another big factor for me (redhead in the sun in Texas), and it's perfect for protecting my neck—much better for me and the environment than sunscreen.”

Those who work outside in the heat love it, too. “I cut grass all day in 90+ degree heat and this thing is a lifesaver. Love that I can change the configuration to cover my mouth in dusty conditions or just wear it like a bandana when it is cooler. Just re-wet and wring it out and I am good for hours before I need to repeat the process,” writes a reviewer. “Versatile, effective and attractive.”
