Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, face masks have become a staple in our everyday wardrobe. We've had another item added to our checklist before leaving our homes: Phone, keys, wallet, face mask. While we've adapted to mask-wearing, our "new normal" poses some new problems, too — like foggy glasses.
Lucky for us glasses-wearing folks, brands are taking it upon themselves to be technically creative when it comes to developing products to make our mask-donning lives easier. While the average face mask causes our lenses to fog up because of our breath, one Etsy retailer has designed a solution — Anti-Fog Japanese Cotton Face Masks.
SHOP IT: Etsy, from $16
What is it?
Made of super-soft and breathable Japanese cotton, these masks are perfectly designed to reduce fog by releasing the wearer's breath out of the side of the masks, instead of the top. They're entirely handmade in California and feature adjustable elastic loops to fit comfortably over the ears.
They're a one-size-fits-all, 3D design made to shape to your unique face structure. The brand also makes their masks in a larger size suitable for those buyers with beards or more rounded face shapes. Better yet, they come in an endless amount of colours and patterns, and can be purchased in packs of two, three, four, five and 10.
Removing glasses to defog them while out and about is annoying and potentially unhygienic without quick access to hand soap or sanitizer. Reduce risk and make your life easier with one of these masks that retail for $16 for one, and have discounted rates when purchased at a package deal.
What shoppers are saying
It's safe to say that buyers are absolutely obsessed with these face masks, with most of the recent purchases coming with a five-star rating.
"The linen is so light and regulates temperature," one happy shopper wrote. "The knit jersey lining is so soft on the skin. The design works very well with glasses."
Another shopper commended the unique design of the masks, writing: "I got the rose gold style and it's so beautiful. The design is different from most other masks I've tried and really is better at keeping steam off my classes. Not 100 per cent, but really close."
For one buyer, the fact that the mask doesn't move around when she speaks is why she loves her purchase.
"I was looking for a full-coverage mask, as the one I have tends to move up my face when I talk," she wrote. "This one fit the bill! It's soft, well made, full coverage without overwhelming my face."
"The first fabric mask my senior, glasses-wearing mom has liked," another customer wrote. "Very comfortable, breathable, fitted to face, but structured enough to make talking easier. Immediately ordered a second batch!"
On top of complimenting the overall make and use of the masks, many buyers commended the store for their excellent customer service, quick answers to questions and speed of delivery.
Considering we're in this pandemic for the long haul and will likely continue wearing masks long after, it's definitely wise to invest in some masks that make your life easier. If fog has you down and fumbling, give the CONICOMasks Anti-Fog Face Masks a shot.
