You probably wouldn’t reach for the same shirt for a day at the office as one that you would wear to the gym, so why should your selection of face coverings be any different?
Now that face masks have become a part of our lives, it makes sense to have different styles for every aspect of your daily routine. Whether that’s a quick trip to the grocery store or a run through the park, there are options on the market now to suit every activity.
Uniqlo’s top-rated AIRism Face Masks feature the same ultra lightweight, breathable technology found in their line of AIRism clothing. Designed to be easier to breathe in than traditional fabric face coverings, they’re a great option for active days, or if you’ve just found other face masks uncomfortable to wear.
They've also just received a new and improved design (and new colours!) that's made with the same fabric you know and love, plus a few upgrades. They now feature elastic straps for less strain behind the ears, and added seams for a more comfortable fit.
How do they work?
According to the Uniqlo website, a triple layer design helps to protect and enhance the AIRism Face Mask performance.
“The outermost layer offers UV protection of UPF 40 while the middle layer functions as a filter. Its innermost layer is made of smooth AIRism material which stays cool and feels smooth against your skin for long-lasting comfort,” reads the product description.
Completely machine washable, the masks originally came in three sizes (small, medium and large), but have since been expanded and are now available in XL to offer a better fit for those with larger faces.
What shoppers are saying
Since their launch last fall, hundreds of shoppers have fallen for the breathable feel and comfortable fit of Uniqlo’s signature face masks. Not only are they lightweight, they’re also designed with three layers of fabric, as is advised in the latest round of government recommendations.
“Given COVID is here to stay, my family have been sourcing various masks based on the current guidelines by health officials. The Uniqlo AIRism masks have been one of the better ones,” reads one five-star review. “Love these masks and I have both black and grey.”
“I love the fit and the feel on your face! I’ve finally found the face mask that’s right for me! No flashy designs or logos means I can use this at work,” echoes another.
Each pack of three masks is available for just $15, making them some of the more affordable reusable masks on the market. They come in a range of sizes from S to XL, making it easier than ever to find the perfect face masks for everyone in the family.
