COVID-19 cases are climbing across the country again and, with that, it makes sense to want to do everything you can to protect yourself. And, while getting vaccinated and boosted dramatically lowers your risk of getting severely ill if you happen to get COVID-19, it won't necessarily prevent you from getting the virus in the first place. So, masking in public indoor spaces is still important if you want to reduce your risk of getting sick.
Luckily, you don't have to pay a ton to get protection. Right now, Amazon is running a sale on its best-selling Borje disposable face masks. You can stock up and score a 50-pack of this black mask set for just $7 (was $11)!
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
These masks are made of three layers of high-quality, non-woven fabric, which is more breathable than an N95 or KN95 — super helpful now that we're in the steamy summer months. It also has a metal nose bridge and elastic ear loops to help you get that just-right fit.
Accordion style pleating in the front helps lift the fabric away from your face, so you don't have to stress about it getting caught in your nose and mouth while you go grocery shopping, hit your local doctor's office and generally go about your day.
And, while the black face masks are fan-favorites, these masks come in a slew of colors and styles, including houndstooth, tie-dye and pink.
Oh, and the Borje face masks have an army of fans — more than 45,000, actually — who rave about their comfort, breathability and general ease of use. "I'm currently using these for in-class teaching every day," one teacher said. "The quality is good and they are far more attractive than the usual aqua blue ones."
"OMG these are the best masks I have ever tried," said a fellow fan. "I have always had issues when wearing them; My glasses fogged and I felt very warm and couldn’t breathe. When I received these, I put one on and went out to do some errands. I kept it on for a few hours without having to rip it off. My anxiety didn’t kick in, I could see through my glasses and could breathe easier."
Another happy customer raved about how the masks are "very comfortable," adding, "the elastics on the sides don't dig into your skin."
This sale won't last forever. Grab a pack of discounted masks to keep handy while you still can!
