When it comes to reusable face masks, quantity matters. You need plenty on hand, because you should be washing masks regularly—when your favorite is in the hamper, you need to have others on deck.

Quality, of course, is even more critical. According to a recent study from the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory, cloth face masks made from fabrics with tight weaves, like cotton, natural silk, flannel, and chiffon, can provide significant protection by filtering out aerosol particles. And fit is critical. The study found that big gaps can lead to a 60 percent decrease in filtration efficiency.

If you’re like us, you’ve been meaning to get more deliberate about finding masks with a just-right fit that meet the standards, look pretty good, and don’t cost a fortune. You’re busy, so we did the research. And we’re pretty excited about what we found.

The Craft & Soul Mattana Face Mask is made from a soft cotton-poly blend with two layers of protection. It’s breathable, well-shaped, comfortable, and—seriously—kind of elegant. More than 1,100 reviewers rave about its virtues.

And although we’ve seen plenty of cloth masks that go for $25 a pop, the Craft & Soul Mattana Face Mask is right now available for a tenth of that—about $2.40 per mask—a pack of 5 is $12.

Comfortable

Many reviewers describe the Craft & Soul masks as soft and comfortable.

“I've tried many, these are my new favorites,” says a happy reviewer. “They're lightweight and easy to breath through and contour my face and nose well.”

“All day all night,” raves one shopper. “Looking for comfort? Soft ear bands? Proper shape? You found it. I’ve bought and returned more masks than most people on Etsy and Amazon. These are keepers.”

Choose among eight solid colors—black, white, dark green, bright pink, purple, red, gray, royal blue—or order a variety pack of mixed neutrals. Want even more bang for your buck? Buy a pack of 20 for $39—which translates to just $1.95 per mask.

Breathable

Multiple reviewers point to the design of the Craft & Soul mask, indicating that the shape and weight of the mask make it more conducive to talking and breathing comfortably.

“I have found other cotton face masks difficult to breathe with,“ writes a five-star reviewer. “They get hot, make my face sweaty, stick to my nostrils and make me wish I could rip it off my face and throw it away. Not these. They’re light weight and specially designed to contour the shape of the front of the face so they don’t stick to your skin, so they’re perfect for walking outdoors during a pandemic.”

Great for glasses wearers

As anyone who wears glasses knows, the constant challenge of foggy lenses is one of the small but persistent inconveniences of this pandemic. A mask that comes a little higher and tucks under the base of your frames can help (as can a tissue folded across the bridge of the nose, inside the mask).

This reviewer discovered the Craft & Soul masks are great for her glasses-wearing spouse. “I got these for my husband and he loves them. He also wears it when it's cold outside for warmth! They cover his round face so well that he can put his glasses nose piece over the mask so that his glasses don't fog!,” says a happy shopper.

Another appreciates the cut from a non-glasses perspective: “I can see! I have been searching for a mask that actually stays out of my eyes. This one fits great.”

At this price, you can’t afford not to try the Craft & Soul Mattana Face Masks. Stock up while the gettin’ is good, with your favorite colors. This way, you’re always covered (get it?).
