When you think of the ultimate luxury fabric, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? Silk, of course. So why are so many of us wearing cloth face masks made from synthetic materials that cause breakouts (hello, maskne) and aren’t breathable?
When it comes to our faces, we should be using the best of the best. And if it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, what is there to lose? We’re thrilled to see that Amazon just started selling $17 face masks made from 100 percent mulberry silk—and shoppers are already snapping them up.
The Roseward 100% Mulberry Silk Face Mask with Filter Pocket has a near-perfect rating — and it’s not just because they’re soft. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, mold and mildew, so it’s great for people with allergies and actually will prevent breakouts better than your other face masks.
Plus, since it’s smooth and slick, it glides across your face rather than tugging at your skin while you speak, preventing wrinkles (that’s why people sleep on silk pillowcases). Perfect for warm weather, silk is also cooling—so you’ll feel calm and collected, too.

The mask features adjustable ear loops and a cone-shaped, 3D design for comfortable wear. Looking for some extra protection? It also contains a pocket for a filter (not included), and it’s available in 10 gorgeous tones of shiny silk. Scroll for just a few more of the many reasons shoppers are loving this gorgeous mask.
Great for sensitive skin
“My face is very sensitive, so other masks have caused breakouts,” writes a reviewer. “This mask sits amazingly on my face. It’s lightweight and soft. The fabric isn’t stifling in the summer heat in Texas, which is a big plus. The [loops] are adjustable and don’t pull my ears. It’s sewed wonderfully. It looks and feels high quality. I already recommended it to everyone I know. I plan to buy more.”
This shopper agrees: “Best face mask ever!!! These masks are so lightweight and so soft and breathable. I am struggling from maskne and these at least make me feel like my skin isn’t being nearly as irritated. BUY!!!”
Comfortable and breathable
“I work in a salon and have to wear a mask all day. Very breathable (even with the filter). My skin was not irritated; highly recommend this mask,” writes a happy shopper. “So comfortable and chic.”
“Breathable fabric and actually looks feminine,” says a five-star reviewer. “10/10 recommend.”
“Like many of us, I'm building a wardrobe of mask options. Disposable surgical-esque ones for medium-risk errand running. Vogmask for high-risk settings like the hairdresser and planes. And now this silk one for low-risk activities like hanging by a socially distanced pool or trail running on hot days,” says a five-star reviewer.
