Very clear warning by the box opening that these masks do not protect you from disease or infection (viruses/ bacteria) see photo for warning.
The masks are not wrapped at all. They are just placed in the box.
Ear loops are “welded” in place with glue. (See photo) It seems to be a bit hit and miss how effective this is so I’d recommend taking out more than one with you if you go out.
Very soft feel against your face, and the ear loops are comfortable in the short term.
The nose clip is effective and stops my glasses from getting steamed up - at least during trials in the house. If this is not the case when I’m finally allowed out, I will update.
“Lighter test” - I saw in another review that the buyer had completed a “lighter test” whereby they blew on a flame with the mask on. They apparently found the flame didn’t flicker and felt this meant the mask would protect them. I replicated the experiment and found that not only didn’t the flame flicker but I was able to blow it completely out - and that’s with severe asthma!
There are instructions on the side of the box for how to put them on. They are very clear in as much as they tell you, however they do not mention that you shouldn’t touch your mask after you’ve put it on or to discard when they get damp I feel this is essential since people could unwittingly be contaminating themselves.
I bought these to adhere to UK law regarding face coverings in shops and on public transport. They are face coverings, nothing more nothing less.
