Today we’re taking a look at the StrongCore Merino Wool face mask from Western Rise. This facemask is made from a blend of Merino wool and Meryl Skinlife which helps kill bacteria growth. The mask is made in two layers so there’s a little area in the middle you can slip in a filter to get more powerful filtering.
The mask is comfortable to wear and I didnt feel too hot wearing it. However like all masks I did notice my glasses fogged up while using the mask so it’s hard to wear sunglasses while wearing it. The way its cut is a little unusual too, it goes up around the cheeks and down to the nose. I would imagine it would be better to go up at the nose and contour around the cheeks. Nevertheless it was comfortable and the L-XL size fit me best.
The S-M size was a little too short for my chin and nose. The space was just a little bit narrow. Overall a really great mask for the price of USD$19 and I’d definitely recommend it if you’re in the market for a washable and reusable face mask made from merino wool.
