We're now nearly two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, and those masks you loaded up on early on are probably getting a little tattered. Couple that with the rise of Omicron, a new COVID-19 variant that the World Health Organization has named a variant of concern, and now is a good time to make sure your mask stock is refreshed — yes, even if you're fully vaccinated.
Of course, having a ready supply of face masks at home isn't cheap. And, depending on the type of mask you like to wear, it can add up over time.
That's why it's so important to act when face masks go on sale. Well, just a heads up: Amazon has quietly slashed the prices of fan-favorite and best-selling masks. Whether you prefer disposable KN95s or cloth face masks, or are finally ready to try Under Armour's cult-favorite UA Sportsmask, there's a sale price for you.

Here are the biggies you definitely don't want to miss.
There's a reason why this mask is an Amazon best-seller: People freak out over it. One first responder wears the masks "religiously" and only takes them off "for bathing, eating, brushing my teeth." The shopper adds: "They have not failed me yet." A dance instructor "would marry this mask," calling it "perfect" and noting that it doesn't slip, even with intense physical activity.
The mask itself is designed to be worn for long-term use and during workouts. A structured design helps it sit off your face and lips for extra comfort while patented UA Iso-Chill fabric on the interior lining and ear loops keeps your face cool. Moisture wicking fabric keeps you from getting sweaty, while a water-resistant outer shell keeps the elements out. You can also enjoy the perks of antimicrobial treatment on the inside layer, helping to ward off eau de mask.
It's important to note that these masks have an FDA emergency use authorization, meaning they've been certified to offer superior protection. Specifically, they filter out 96.1 percent of particles, making them similar in function to an N95 mask. WWDOLL masks have five layers of protection: two layers of non-woven cloth, two layers of melt-blown fabric, and one layer of hot-air cotton to moisture from your breath, wicking it away from skin.
People swear by the WWDOLLs in the reviews. “Sturdy construction, more quality appearance than other KN95 masks selling for less,” one five-star reviewer wrote, noting that it “looks great with professional uniforms.” Another likes “how tight fitting it is.”

These reusable cloth face masks are crafted from a combo of soft cotton and polyester for a comfy feel. They also have a filter insert (and included filters) to help offer superior protection. A curved fit under your chin and contoured fabric panel helps you get a close fit. A nice feature: It has an elastic band in the back to reduce pressure on your ears. And, if you like double masking, these masks fit nicely over a surgical option.
"This mask is probably the first one that I can say is acceptable for all-day wear," one fan wrote. Another called this the "best mask EVER!!!" while raving about the fit. "They make it so it fits really well over your ears and holds tight, but they also have a strap that connects the ear straps, so I can pull it down to my neck when not in use," they wrote.
