Who would have thought this time a year ago that we would have a new permanent accessory in the form of a face mask. It’s been a strange transition and a strange old year but now it’s the norm and face masks aren’t going anywhere any time soon! At the beginning, I struggled. There were multiple occasions where I had to awkwardly pull my jumper right up to my eyes or fashion my coat/scarf in a very unconvincing way just to buy a pint of milk. Who can relate?! But here we are almost a year later and face masks have become second nature, I find them everywhere now, in my pockets, in my bags and dotted round my house.

About six months ago, having accepted that these new accessories were here to stay, I decided to find my go-to mask. This may seem like a simple task but it was trial and error and many different masks were trialled in the process. I tried various materials, silky ones that created a lot of heat and moisture, a linen one that was too scratchy and others that were just plain uncomfortable – far too tight or pulling at my ears. I tried some ‘stylish statement’ masks which arrived and whilst they looked great, just seemed too flimsy and thin as if they didn’t offer any protection. Different shapes – ones that squished my nose, that left marks on my face and made it difficult to breathe. With many, I suffered the dreaded ‘maskne’ and found my skin breaking out all along my chin and jaw line. Others appeared great but after one wash lost their shape or shrunk and could not be reused.

HOWEVER! On my quest to find the perfect mask I finally managed to achieve just that! I discovered NEQI and so I am here to rave about my winning mask and the only mask I have worn since. It is also the only mask my friends/family wear as I haven’t shut up about them to the point where they bought their own – I’m totally like an influencer now! But seriously, I had to share my love of NEQI masks with you, especially because they have kindly given a discount…….

These masks are so comfortable that I don’t even bother taking them off when I leave the shop on my walks. I used to rip my face mask off as soon as I left the supermarket or stepped off the tube, but now I leave it on. They look great, feel great and keep me safe! If you don’t believe how great these masks are, take David Beckham’s word for it or Rita Ora’s – they’re both fans of the brand and apparently love them as much as me.

First of all, NEQI masks look like this. You can go for classic black, a little detail round the edges (the leopard print trim is a personal favourite) or go all out with a fun, statement mask – whenever I wear my sparkly mask, my mood is instantly lifted and I feel like dancing! I also get alot of smiles and thumbs up from other people, which considering the times we’re in, is an impressive feat! Who knew a face mask could bring such joy? Aside from their appearance, because many face masks can look good, NEQI masks are safe. Each mask has three layers of material, blocking an incredibly 98% of particles. These masks are highly effective, accredited by Which? Best Buy, standing out as the #1 performing face mask. Due to the lovely breathable material, extra comfortable design and effective protection, they have been proven to outperform all of the alternative masks on the market. See I’m not crazy for loving these masks so much, I can back it up!

I know a lot of people have struggled to find a face mask that works for them and as a result so many people continue to use disposable ones. The only issue is that it seems as though we will be wearing masks for quite some time and if we think about the number of masks being binned each day all over the world it’s a scary thought! Research has found that if every person in the UK wore a disposable face mask, 121,000 tonnes of plastic waste would be generated in just one year. That’s the equivalent weight of 12 Eiffel Towers or 20,000 elephants or 5 Statue of Liberty’s. Can you imagine! It takes 450 years to break down a single disposable mask and something like 75% of these end up in our oceans. These littered masks leak toxins into our environment that can damage ecosystems and wildlife. So, if you can help it, go sustainable! And if part of the reason is because you haven’t found the right reusable mask, try NEQI and I promise you won’t look back. 

These masks honestly tick all the boxes. They are super safe, incredibly comfortable, sustainable, breathable and seriously stylish too (I mean Becks wears them afterall…) with something for everyone. I can also reassure you that they wash really well too, just dry them flat along the radiator and they are good as new. Take my word or join the celebrities who love NEQI, and you will not be disappointed!
