Back to school: New comfy face masks for school children

35As thousands of children across the UK have just returned to school, and with mask wearing recommended in secondary schools and higher education, how to keep youngsters safe from the risks of COVID-19 is at the forefront of parent’s minds. London Mums have tested new face masks and shared their feedback on the various masks in this blog.

The latest face masks that my son has tested during the first week in school is by award-winning air wearables brand AirPop which has designed a range of masks with a two-way barrier giving children and teachers the defence they need against airborne threats, such as COVID-19, as well as providing optimum comfort and breathability. He has provided positive comments and claimed that he felt comfortable. He is usually annoyed by face masks so I was pleased by this feedback and can confidently recommend AirPop. Their kids mask, for children aged 3 to 12-years-old, has been specially engineered to suit smaller features, whilst delivering over 99% particle filtration. AirPop’s Pocket mask also provides the same level of protection and offers the perfect solution for teenagers at secondary school. The masks have a unique 3D structure which creates a canopy of air, keeping them off the face for effortless breathability. Paired with low resistance materials, the range delivers unrestricted airflow for easy breathing, making them comfortable to wear all day. Each mask is fitted with an ultra-soft, ergonomic foam nose seal cushion which conforms around the nose and promotes proper alignment, reducing fogging of eyewear for glasses wearers.

AirPop Kids masks come in blue, pink or white colours and retail for £14.99 for a 2-pack; £24.99 for a 4-pack. You can find all AirPop multi-use disposable masks at or the AirPop website (


Here are other face masks that our team of London Mums reviewers have tested and recommended:

I also like the VK Respi Pro, a new self-sterilizing mask enriched with accelerated Copper Oxide, which is reuseable for up to 7 Days (or 30 hours).  Apparently this mask not only catches viruses, but also deactivates them. The VK series respirators are able to combine advantages of the membrane and patented technology of accelerated copper oxide. The outcome is revolutionary self-sterilizing respirators with a typical copper colour. They reliably protect you and your surroundings without the need to take care of them in any way.
