With many states and cities requiring people to wear face coverings in public, you’ve likely been looking to stock up on reusable, non-medical options. If you tend to find traditional masks uncomfortable or hard to breathe through, Amazon shoppers seem to have found a solution with the Achiou Summer Face Covering.

Along with being ultra-soft and gentle on your skin, the face covering is lightweight, windproof, and easy to breathe in. What’s more, the mask provides UPF 50 sun protection, making it a great option to wear on hot summer days.

Besides offering your skin protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, the comfortable face cover is also machine-washable and easy to clean, so you can rewear it often. With details like that, it comes as no surprise that many Amazon customers are obsessed with the Achiou mask, which has an impressive 4.2-star rating.

“I purchased this as a mask to use at home or shopping during the Covid lockdown,” said one reviewer. “It works very well and is easy to breathe through and use. It is a bit warm if you wear it long term, but then it is a lot more comfortable than the masks provided to medical staff and seems just as effective.”

“Good mask choice for spring and summer,” wrote another. “This material is light, stretchy and breathable. It is easy to get on and stay on and doesn’t steam up your glasses. It is a good addition to your mask stash as you will need more than one or two…I bought three.”

The mask is available in 11 different colors and prints and can be yours for just $13. So if you’ve been looking for a comfortable and breathable face covering to wear this summer, this UV-proof option might be your best bet.
