- Ever since the novel coronavirus pandemic first began, Jointown 3-ply face masks have been the best-selling masks on Amazon’s entire site — and right now they’re on sale for just 60¢ each.
- For higher-risk situations, you can pick up popular MagiCare KN95 face masks on sale for just $1.53 each, which is also an all-time low price.
- If you want to check out more options like reusable cloth masks, Amazon also has a special page on its website dedicated to face masks with plenty of options.
Everyone is so excited right now because Amazon actually has Purell hand sanitizer in stock and available for anyone to buy, not just hospitals and government agencies. Individual bottles of Purell have inflated prices, but they’re actually in stock and ready to ship along with Lysol Disinfectant Spray, which is even rarer these days (and even more price-gouged, so it’s only for people with a very urgent need). If you don’t mind a different brand of hand sanitizer, you’ll get a much better deal if you pick up a 12-pack of Medex hand sanitizer. It uses the same formulation as Purell and it’s a trusted brand that’s sold in Whole Foods, CVS, 7-Eleven, Costco, and elsewhere.
Of course, there’s one thing you need that’s even more important than hand sanitizer. Yes, we’re talking about face masks. Coronavirus lockdown restrictions are finally easing across the country, which is fantastic news. Unfortunately, case numbers are skyrocketing across the country because so many people refuse to take even the most basic precautions as economies reopen. Many states including California, Florida, Texas, Arizona, North Carolina, Georgia, and more are seeing massive spikes in new COVID-19 cases because quarantine fatigue has made people reckless. They’re not wearing face masks, they’re not using hand sanitizer, they’re not maintaining enough distance from others, and people are getting sick as a result.
It says right on the coronavirus page on the CDC’s website that you must “cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.” If you don’t, you’re just asking for trouble. And even if you already tested positive for COVID-19, you still need to wear a face mask to ensure that you don’t spread it to other people. Do you really want to be responsible for anyone else catching the virus and potentially dying?
Any cloth face covering will help protect you from the novel coronavirus as long as you also practice strict social distancing and good hygiene, which means using soap or hand sanitizer to clean your hands anytime to touch a surface in public. Beyond that, it will protect other people around you in case you’re infected with COVID-19. This is crucial, but it doesn’t mean you should go buying up N95 face masks meant for healthcare workers and first responders. There’s a huge shortage of medical-grade masks right now, and using masks that are meant for people who are constantly at risk is shameful and selfish. That’s especially true since there are so many different options right now on Amazon that are in stock and ready to ship soon.
Amazon now has a special face mask page on its site that is dedicated solely to face masks and other protective covers. You’ll find plenty of different options there that range from surgical-style masks to various cloth covers. If you’d rather not browse through them all, we totally understand and we’re here to help. That’s why we’ve rounded up the three best-selling face masks on Amazon right now.
First, 3-Layer Face Masks From Jointown are the single best selling masks on Amazon right now. These are great three-layer masks that do a much better job of protecting you and those around you than a bandana or most homemade masks. They’re available right now at a new lower price of $29.99 per box of 50, which works out to just $0.60 per mask.
Next up, we have similar LeadPro 3-Ply Face Masks. These are also top-sellers on Amazon right now and they do just as good a job as Jointown’s masks.
Last but certainly not least, we have the MagiCare KN95 Face Masks. These masks are much thicker than the first two options and they filter smaller particles as well. They’re also more expensive, but it’s not a bad idea to keep a few around for special circumstances like if you have to go to the hospital or a doctor’s office. I even use KN95 masks when I’m grocery shopping because you can never be too careful. These popular masks are on sale for under just $1.53 each today when you buy a 20-pack, which is the lowest price we’ve seen all year.
Also of note, if you want popular reusable N95 face masks, we found an online shop called Clinical Supplies that has a ton of masks in stock. Prices are sky-high, but a lot of people right now are willing to pay those prices for things like genuine 3M 8210 N95 face masks that are in stock right now at a US-based company.
