Uniqlo is that special place in the mall that you know will be unimaginably clean. The performance apparel brand, though, started carrying this Airism Face Mask that not only makes breathing through a mask more bearable, but it also protects you from sun damage.

Now that most of us are in fully-fledged Covid-prevention mode, it’s pretty obvious now that not all face masks are made the same. According to the CDC, “a mask may not protect the wearer, but it may keep the wearer from spreading the virus to others.” 

Although not everyone is on board with wearing a mask, those who are preventing the spread of germs have been on the hunt for a breathable mask for some time. That’s where Uniqlo’s Airism face mask comes in. 

In a time where germs continue to spread, this high-performance Airism face mask keeps you dry and keeps moisture out — and that’s just the first layer of the face mask. The second layer improves breathability with the washable built-in filter while the third layer of the mask uses the AIRISM mesh that also helps block UV rays. What’s also cool about these masks is that they come in three sizes: small, medium and large. Plus, you can even get the three-pack face mask in white or black colorways.

One customer, who left a five-star review of the face mask said “It checks all of the boxes.”

“Fits my face perfectly, comfortable, stylish, breathable,” they wrote. “So glad that Uniqlo finally made a mask.”

Another customer added that while the mask is good, it runs small.

“We purchased medium (woman) and large (men), but even myself (woman) who has a small face, it feels slightly short by the chin and large is too big for me.”

If you want to opt-in for a better fit, this four-pack of stylish face masks from Nordstrom are made specifically for adults and comes with a washable filter pocket. Not to mention, there’s this running list of brands that carry face masks to make finding your perfect face protection a breeze.
