I had this great plan to do a photo shoot of my Seawheeze order, over the weekend except... I still have not received it! It's been sitting at the same location since Wednesday. It's been eleven days since it was shipped. I literally can't believe how long it's taking to arrive. I have a feeling when it does get here, the box or bag will be in tatters. Sigh.
I had to come up with a plan B post. I've been planning on reviewing my face masks, so here we are. My top favorites are Athleta, Werkshop, and Rothy's. All three have pros and cons. None of them are perfect.
I'll review Rothy's face masks first. They are very large masks and easily cover my husband's face. They have comfortable ear loops (not adjustable) and are easy to breath in. These are made of recycled plastic bottles!
I'm wearing a Coach mask. Hubby is wearing Rothy's.
It fits my husband's face better.
The mask is a little too large for my face, but it's okay as long as I do not look down. If I look down, the bottom of the mask hits my throat which makes it slightly uncomfortable, but it's okay if I'm only wearing it for a short time. This mask has a crease down the middle, which makes it easy to breath and talk in. They are very sturdy and a little on the stiff side.
The inside does have some felt lining on the bridge of the nose and on the sides. Now I do have a few issues with the mask. The masks have some kind of weird smell to them. It's a little unpleasant to be honest. I've washed it a bunch of times to see if it would go away and so far it hasn't. The inside of the mask is also textured as you can see. It's not the softest because it is knitted, so it does feel a little scratchy to the skin if it moves around on your face.
(It folds up very nicely though.)
Side note, I'm also eyeing these gorgeous Mary Jane's in golden gingham. I've always loved the marigold yellow and these look so vintage. Sometimes I like the vintage boho look. They're on my fall wishlist.
These Lace Up sneakers are also on my list. They're so pricey though! If anyone is interested I do have a referral link for $20 off your first order. I like vanilla and spearmint the best.
Next up, we have the Athleta face masks. I really like them because they have a wire along the nosebridge which makes it stand out from the other masks. You can bend it along the shape of your nose and this allows you to breath easily and if you wear glasses like me, it helps prevent fogging up. The pleats also allow you to customize the coverage for your face. The one thing that is not great is how hot you get while wearing it. For some reason I definitely feel like this mask makes my face run really hot. I'm sure this will be perfect once the weather cools down a little. They're also the easiest on the wallet. You get five per pack and the pack cost $30. The fabric is soft and I have no other issues with this mask.
(Woven fabric and ear loops are adjustable!)
(Wire is along the top stitched in.)
Last but not least, I've reviewed Werkshop Masks before and you can read it here. Quick summary, I love the artwork. I think they're gorgeous and fun to wear. They do run a little smaller than the other masks I've tried. These are made of the same fabric as their athleisure leggings and because of that the fabric is very soft so if you don't have the mask on just right, the fabric makes it hard to breath at times. Basically when you inhale, the fabric will be pulled in and goes right against your nostrils. It can be annoying. This mask would definitely benefit with a wire for the nose bridge.
(Has pockets for filters. Ear loops are not adjustable but stretchy.)
These are pricey- $26 a pop. Yikes! That said, I do love this gorgeous Rose Mask. I'm a sucker for anything limited edition. 😆
That's it for me! Hope you all have a great week!
