With the number of COVID-19 cases rising in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend all Americans over the age of 2 wear a face covering in public settings to help slow the spread. So it should be no surprise that face masks were one of the most-shopped products on Amazon Prime Day last week. While many people stocked up on disposable masks, this reusable style from Safe-Mate x Case-Mate was also very popular.
Not only are the masks currently the best-seller in Amazon's Launchpad — a marketplace that lets customers find innovative products by smaller businesses or emerging brands — but they were also one of the most popular products PEOPLE readers purchased during the retailer’s two-day extravaganza. According to our data, readers bought over 12,000 face masks from the brand (a majority of which were in adult sizes).
But parents having trouble keeping little ones protected during the pandemic should consider the brands’ smaller face masks for kids. They’re made from a soft, washable cotton fabric that’s designed to wrap securely and comfortably around the nose and chin and feature a pocket for an optional filter (which can be purchased separately). Its contoured shape and soft elastic ear loops provide a more flexible fit that reviewers say is comfortable enough to wear for longer periods of time, like when they’re in school.
“Bought two packs for 8 and 11 year olds as they are required for school,” one wrote. “They fit them well and they don't complain about comfort.”

“These fit well on kids, especially 5 or younger,” another commented. “My 3-year-old wears it when necessary without complaints. The enclosed filters are a nice bonus. Works well with clip-on lanyards. The masks are quality made, not too thick or too thin.”
Phone accessories brand Case-Mate recently launched its own personal care brand, Safe-Mate, to help create in-demand essentials like face masks, mask filters, and no-contact thermometers — all of which are available on Amazon. What’s great about its protective gear is that it comes in a range of sizes for adults and kids (because one size doesn’t always fit all faces). There’s a youth mask for ages 3 to 6, along with an option for ages 7 to 11 that are available in a variety of colors and patterns. And parents can get one for themselves in sizes small-medium or large-extra large.
While the masks are no longer at their Prime Day price, they’re still very reasonably priced. You can get a single kids' mask for $9 or a pack of three kids’ masks for $20, which you may want to have on hand for when the others are being cleaned.
