If you haven’t noticed, it can be pretty tricky to get your hands on a quality face mask. Either they’re already sold out or have waitlists that extend well into June. And it’s not surprising; the CDC now recommends that Americans wear a cloth face covering in public places where social distancing can be hard to practice, like at the grocery store. So, we did the research and found the twelve best face masks that are still in stock and can be shipped to your door, ASAP.
Just remember, a mask doesn’t replace other recommended measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, so follow the guidelines provided by your local and state government to best protect yourself and your loved ones.

It might seem like you’re only buying a five-pack with each purchase of Christy Dawn’s The Sustainable Mask (which has handy behind-ear elastics), but your purchase will result in the donation of five additional masks to organizations in need.

And they even offer kid’s sizing, too!

Chanel doesn’t make their own face masks (at least not yet), but this might be the second-best option. The Mighty Company uses leftover metallic fabric that was produced at Malhia Kent, a French mill that manufactures many of Chanel’s iconic tweeds. The interior features a 100 percent antimicrobial cotton lining, and the piping is finished with glitter stretch nylon. For each mask purchased, another will be donated to The Midnight Mission homeless shelter in Downtown Los Angeles.

Yes, this mask from milliner Gigi Burris is beyond chic. But the extra grosgrain tie on the back is actually pretty functional: If you find the elastic around your ears is too loose, you can just tie a bow behind your head for a better fit. There’s also an adjustable wire at the nose bridge. Each handmade mask is fitted with a built-in, non-woven polypropylene filter and each purchase will result in a donation of two masks to communities in need.

Finding the perfect fit on a face mask can be hard—it’s not like you can head to a store to try a few options on. Rafi Nova makes it easier by not only offering three sizes of mask, but also fitting the material of each with a toggle, so they can be adjusted just so to cover your chin and nose…but not your entire face. The four-layer design includes a filter and anti-bacterial protection, in addition to an adjustable nose wire.

If you’ve found that most earloops are too big (or small), Vida’s got the solution. Each stretchy strap is adjustable and the mask itself—which comes in nine colors and kids’ sizes—is made with a layer of carbon activated and multi-layer PM2.5 filter that can be replaced.

The best way to get your kids to put on a face mask and keep it on? Make sure it fits them properly. If it’s a cool color or pattern, even better.

Each style features elastic or knit trim wraps around the ear and the double-layer deadstock fabric was designed to offer space for a removable filter.

Breathe easy with the reassurance that this mask is equipped with an antimicrobial layer that will remain effective for up to 30 washes. The only downside?
