Tired of your glasses fogging up every time you wear your mask? We tested several face masks to find the best face mask for glasses wearers.
When the mask you’re wearing does not seal perfectly, the air you exhale escapes the mask and goes toward your glasses. And since the air you breathe out has a higher temperature than the lenses on your glasses, the air cools quickly, causing your specs to fog up. This does not only make it harder for you to see, but also leads to increased condensation on your nose bridge, causing your glasses to slide more easily down your nose. Fortunately, you can avoid all these by simply wearing a mask that offers a perfect snug fit, like the EVERBRAND ViralOff Mask.
The EVERBRAND ViralOff Mask features a pliable metal nose bond that when adjusted properly prevents your glasses from fogging up. Its metal nose bond is sturdy and stays in place, so there’s no need to readjust it from time to time. The face-covering also features adjustable ear straps that make the mask fit even more snugly onto your face.
As its name implies, the EVERBRAND ViralOff Mask is treated with a high dosage (3%) silver additive called ViralOff Technology. According to a study at the Beijing Institute of Epidemiology, a fabric treated with ViralOff was shown to inactivate SARS coronavirus on the fabric by 99% in two hours. Despite its antiviral properties, ViralOff is safe for skin and does not come off when you inhale.
Though it features a four-layer construction, the EVERBRAND ViralOff Mask remains breathable. However, we did notice that because of the tight seal that the mask creates, the airflow inside of the mask feels more restrictive than it is with most other face masks. In any case, the mask’s inner layer is made of 100% cotton; the two core layers are made with nonwoven polypropylene fabric; and the water-repellent outer layer is made of 100% polyester.
The EVERBRAND ViralOff Mask can be washed up to 15 times and maintain antiviral efficacy. It, however, will still be antibacterial and functional even after 15 machine washes.
Selling for $36 per 3-pack, the EVERBRAND ViralOff Mask comes in three sizes (S/M, L/XL, Kids) and in a variety of colors, including gray, ice, black, and forest. Each 3-pack also includes a ViralOff bag for storage.
