You have to wear a face covering, but you don’t want to spend a fortune on it. We get it: which is why we’re rounded up the best cheap face masks that are still in stock across the internet right now.
Wearing a mask is already compulsory on public transport, and from 24 July that rule comes into force in shops as well, so if you don’t already have one, now is either the time to get sewing and make your own, or invest in a ready-made option.
Plenty of high-end designers have already started turning their hands to mask making, with some (admittedly beautiful) luxury options retailing for upwards of £40 for a single mask. There’s high demand for pretty face masks, or funny face masks that show a bit of personality; but if you’re just after something that does the job and keeps you and those around you as safe as possible, you can find simple reusable masks for as little as £1.25 from supermarkets and other budget retailers. Some of them even come in a variety of prints, patterns and colours, so you can still make a style statement with your mask without breaking the bank.
Ready to place your order? Here are 8 purse-friendly options that all cost less than £5 per mask and can be washed and reworn again and again.
