Stylish Face Masks to Try

Love this? Share it!

If we’ve got to wear them, they might as well be cute, right? I’m sharing some of the stylish face masks I’ve found and purchased. Share your favorites with me!

Remember when I used to write about face masks when it meant something different? I’ve written so many times about my love of face masks – creams/gels/sheets, etc., and yet, here I am now, writing about face masks of the fabric kind. The ones designed to help keep us all healthy and safe!

If you’re reading this I’m just going to assume I don’t need to convince of you why you need a mask, so let’s talk some of the ones I’ve bought.

While I honestly don’t have to go many places (I work from home and utilize all things pick-up/delivery these days), there are times when I have to be in public places or around other people, mainly for my doctor’s appointments, so I want to make sure I’ve got some mask options!

I thought if I had a handful of masks that would ensure I had enough for a week without having to wash them each night. I now have seven and think I should be set. This doesn’t include the box of 50 disposable masks we keep on hand, just in case. But those aren’t cute. Let’s talk cute. :)

Here are the stylish face masks I now own – I’ll share a bit about the fabric, fit, and whether they pass the candle test! (Meaning I’m not able to blow out a candle while wearing one – that’s how I saw Bill Nye explain why we should wear them!)

1. Paris & London Masks from Roni the Travel Guru

The first cloth masks I bought were from a travel blogger I’ve followed for quite a while. Roni hasn’t been traveling during this time, of course, so I love that I can still help support her business right now. I’ve purchased two different masks for myself and one for Brent – he likes the fit of these and my mom has purchased a couple of these too. 

The ones I own are “Oh La La” (Paris) and “Mind the Gap” (London).

Fabric: Two layers of cotton with an opening so you can add your own filter if you’d like

Fit: The ones I have go over the head instead of around the ears. I find these to fit better to the face but you do have to mess a tiny bit more to get them looking nice on your head. Not a huge deal though. I don’t know that it was an option when I ordered but you can now choose this style or for the elastic to go around your ears if you’d like. 

Do they pass the candle test? Yes! I was not able to blow out a candle wearing these masks.

Price: $15 with $5 shipping OR free shipping if you buy two or more. Several prints to choose from.

2. Pack of 3 Tie-Dye Inspired from Jill Zarin Home

Yes, the same Jill Zarin of former Real Housewives fame. I saw someone on Instagram (OK, it was a former Bachelor contestant – I think I follow too many reality television stars) talk about how these masks she was wearing were the most comfortable she had found. 

I figured they were worth trying! Turns out, they were from Jill Zarin’s home company and are really cute. They are super comfortable too. Worth noting – these smelled super perfume-y when I opened them but a turn in the washing machine took care of it.

I don’t see the exact set I bought but they have a lot to choose from. 

Fabric: These are a soft, stretchy cotton.

Fit: Goes over the ears and the mask fit my face nicely.

Does it pass the candle test? Yes! I honestly didn’t know if it would because these felt almost too breathable. The candle didn’t budge though! 

Price: $40 for a package of three, or other individual masks from $20.  There are several colors/sets to choose from.

3. Cotton Facemasks from Vera Bradley

I saw another friend mention on Facebook that the Vera Bradley face masks were the most comfortable she had found, naturally I needed to check it out! I’ve got to be honest, this is my first Vera Bradley purchase. I’ve never really been a fan of their particular aesthetic, it’s just not for me. BUT, they did have some cute face masks and I bought two different styles to try.

First, the regular cotton face mask (in Midnight Wildflowers)

Fabric: Two layers of cotton with opening for a filter.

Fit: This one fits comfortably over the ears. It seemed pretty loose on my face (I will admit I may have a smaller than average head) but I haven’t washed it yet (just opened it) and they say that washing will give it the best fit.

Does it pass the candle test? It does, I could not blow out a candle wearing it.

Price: $8

Now for the pleated mask (in Charming Grove):

Fabric: Two layers of cotton with opening for a filter

Fit: This one fits around the head, so no pressure on your ears if that bothers you. The elastic is also adjustable so that gives you a great fit. 

Does it pass the candle test? It does, I could not blow out a candle wearing it.

Price: $8

Honestly, each of these masks serves its purpose and looks cute, so I really can’t pick favorites. As someone who likes to accessorize, choosing between them is just a matter of finding what works with my outfit. :)

Do you have other favorite stylish face masks that you’ve found? I’d love to hear what you’re buying!
