Mask Up! The Cute Reusable Face Coverings That Are Still In Stock!

Let's be friends!

The books we're reading, the vibrators we're using, the rants we're having and more in our weekly EDM.

Here we go again! Mask wearing is now mandatory when you’re visiting essential services, (like the supermarket, or pharmacy) so don’t leave home without one! If you’re finding single use medical masks a pain aaaand a fortune to keep using, or just want something that’s actually a bit cute to wear we’ve got you sorted!

Now, the vast majority of these masks are not medical grade, and whatever mask you’re wearing, you still need to observe two metre distancing, handwashing, coughing into your elbow and all the sensible things you should be doing to keep yourself and others safe. The advice that you need to treat your facemask the same as your underwear is bang on – make sure they’re clean and dry before every use, don’t wear someone else’s and don’t touch/readjust them in when you’re out in public.

Here we go!

$22 each (includes 2 Meo™ Helix ™ Filters)

These beauties are designed to international testing standards and perfect for preventing the spread of flu (they’re highly effective in filtering 99.99% of harmful airborne bacteria, removing most flu pathogens). These masks are super reliable – they remove noxious gases, inhibit the growth of bacteria, are made from a renewable resource AND are hypoallergenic. The MEO ™ natural filters use wool from sheep specially breed in Wanaka and are now in high demand internationally – go NZ!
