The Masks We’ve Been Wearing

If you’re like us and have been searching for protective face masks options for you and your kids, you are probably finding that there are a lot of different options out there. So today we’re sharing the masks that our team has found and liked. While these options aren’t medical grade {those are reserved for the professionals}, the masks on this list are washable and reusable, perfect for daily use. And while shopping for masks may not seem as exciting as picking out a new purse or hair accessory, if we are going to be wearing them, they might as well be cute. Take a look at our picks below…


1. Hedley & Bennett The Wake Up & Fight Mask, $22

These washable, reusable fabric masks have an insert for a disposable filter for an added layer of protection. If you buy one, Hedley & Bennett will donate one to someone in need, and for every multi-pack purchase, 5% of sales go towards mask donations.

You can also make a quick mask at home with a bandana {like this Madewell one} and hair tie tutorial, which is one of the most comfortable and breathable options.

3. Clare V. Bowie Mask, $19

We’re in love with this cute mask from Clare V. With a Lilac Floral print and striped ties, this reusable, 100% cotton mask will keep you chic and protected at the same time.
