UNIQLO Malaysia just launched their AIRism face mask in-store and online today, 14 September
After teasing the arrival of these comfortable reusable masks a few weeks back, it's no wonder that long queues started forming in front of UNIQLO stores even before they opened today.
In fact, the UNIQLO website reportedly crashed with too many people trying to get their hands on one of these face masks.
We waited in line earlier today and managed to get our hands on these face masks. And yes, each customer is only entitled to buy ONE pack per size and colour.
Each pack of AIRism face masks come with three reusable masks. It comes in sizes S, M, and L, and you can choose between black or white.
Here's what you should know:
1. Is it breathable?
Yes, this is probably one of the most comfortable and breathable face masks you'll find. It feels lightweight, it's smooth to touch, and it's cooling thanks to the AIRism technology.
2. Does the elastic hurt your ears?
The elastic for the mask isn't as stretchy as the usual surgical face masks you wear every day. Instead, it rests comfortably on your ears, which mean you should be able to wear this for long-hours. However, since it's not as elastic, you'll have to make sure to get the size that fits you perfectly.
3. Is the mask easy to wash?
Yes, you can wash it like any other reusable mask, and it's even machine washable. It retains its efficacy even after 20 washes.
4. Does it come with a filter?
Yes, the triple-layer face mask comes with a filter that blocks out 99% of bacteria and pollen. It also comes with UPF 50 rating, cutting out 90% of UV rays.
5. Does it fog up your glasses?
Unfortunately, when we tried it out, it still did fog up our glasses every once in a while.
The UNIQLO AIRism face mask is now available for sale at RM39.90 for a pack of three, and you can get it in-store or on their website
