It's been six months since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. And we're just gonna put this out there…it might be time to change up your mask game.
Look, we realize most of us aren't focused on styling right now and it's not like we have nearly as many opportunities to impress others in person these days anyway. But if you've been wearing that same boring basic black non-medical mask for the past 180 days, it's probably time to shake things up.
To help, we've put together a few Boing Boing Store deals on some non-medical facewear in honor of 10.10 Day. And since everyone's trying to get this new retail holiday off the ground, you can even take an extra 20 percent off the price of your mask with the coupon code OCTSALE20 during checkout.
Safe and efficient

Washable, reusable, and comfy as an old pair of sweatpants, this face mask is all about non-frills function. While it comes in an assortment of colors, this premium cotton cloth face covering is also a big savings at just over $5 per mask.

A touch of the island vibe is the real selling point here…even though the four layers of protection, including two cotton layers and two sewn-in layers of non-woven polyester interfacing, say these masks also mean business. But, c'mon…who doesn't like that little Tommy Bahama touch happening here?
A different take
