Face Mask or Face Masks? This video is on Best Face Mask. Face Mask Review. Comfortable Face Mask. Breathable Face Mask.
After months of testing this video is finally LIVE! In this video I will show you the results of 5 different reusable face masks I have tested which follow the WHO guidelines for reusable face masks. I want to make it very clear from the start that this video is NOT sponsored nor have I been paid to promote or test any of the face masks in this video! These are my unbiased opinions and I have no affiliation with these masks or companies.
I have spent my own money because to purchase these masks and want to give you great content that you can trust! They are all under £10, have at least THREE layers are reusable and from what I can see they follow a lot of the WHO face mask guidelines. I will review things like comfort, glasses fog, breathability, quality and loads more.
For the purpose of this video I have given each of the masks a generic name:
Alpha, Beta, Delta, Sigma and Omega. There will be seven rounds and I will award points to my top three in each section. The mask with the most points at the end will be crowned the ultimate face mask!

THE WHO REUSABLE FACE MASK GUIDELINES:
Check for filtration, breathability and fit when choosing a fabric mask. It should be held in place comfortably with little adjustment using elastic bands or ties. There are different mask shapes such as flat-fold or duckbill – find the one that fits closely over your nose, cheeks and chin. When the edges of the mask are not close to the face and shift, such as when speaking, air penetrates through the edges of the mask rather than being filtered through the fabric. Masks with vents or exhalation valves are not advised because they allow unfiltered breath to escape the mask.
Fabric masks should be made of three layers of fabric:
• Inner layer of absorbent material, such as cotton.
• Middle layer of non-woven non-absorbent material, such as polypropylene.
• Outer layer of non-absorbent material, such as polyester or polyester blend.
If purchasing a fabric mask from a store, check to make sure it meets national performance standards.

THE FACE MASKS REVIEWED IN THIS VIDEO:
Please note that most masks these days can be made by any manufacturer and they will typically put different logos on the same generic masks! Therefore use this video as a feature guide when purchasing your reusable face mask whichever mask you end up buying, it will likely be very similar to the masks I have tested.
