Tanya Taylor Protective Face Masks
"I bought these Tanya Taylor Protective Face Masks ($35 for three) because I was instantly taken by the fun patterns, but I also appreciate that they have elastic ear loops for easy wearing. Plus, for each pack purchased, the brand will be donating the funds to create one nonmedical grade mask to be donated to a healthcare worker in conjunction with its fundraising effort, which to date has put nearly 30,000 masks into production for the US and Canada." — Macy Cate Williams, editor, Shop and Must Have
"The silky-soft fabric that I'm used to on my favorite dresses feel so comfortable on my face. Plus, the Reformation Masks ($25 for five) come in assorted prints, and I got a cute cherry print, making it a great choice." — Krista Jones, associate editor, Shop
Wolford Care Face Covering
"I took a chance on this Wolford Care Face Covering ($35) that I found on Amazon, and it is actually really comfortable and easy to wear. The fabric is thick but still breathable. It has a wire around the nose area, so it really fits the face well. Plus, I can clean it in the washing machine!" — Zara Patel, editorial intern
Hedley & Bennett The Wake Up & Fight Mask
"These Hedley & Bennett The Wake Up & Fight Mask ($22) are no-nonsense masks that don't take up much space (easy to put in your pocket on a walk, for instance). They have a slot to put in a filter, and they're washable (I've washed mine several times and it still holds up). Plus, they donate one for every mask purchased. The fit is comfortable and works for both me and my husband." — Tara Block, Content Director, Growth and Strategic Features
Heather Taylor Home Face Masks
"These Heather Taylor Home Face Masks ($50 for 10) are super comfortable. They're thick but still breathable, and I love that the elastic is sturdy but not too heavy. Plus, they're big enough to safely cover my entire face. They've become the mask of choice for my entire family, and celebrities like Lizzo and Maya Rudolph are also fans." — IY
