Today, I picked up 4 masks I ordered online from you. They are great! Thank you 👍👍”
“I love my masks the blush one with the stretchy ear loops is my favourite!... I have been recommending you to everyone who asks, they are great!”
"Love the masks. So comfortable and a great fit."
Absolutely love these masks! They're super comfortable, love the behind-the-head button-up rather than ear loops, and they wash up well. I did the "candle test"and they passed with flying colours! (To check that you have a good quality mask, try to blow out a candle. If you can't, it's a good mask. With these masks, the candle didn't even flicker!) Thank you!
