    Psst — I own this face mask chain, and I love love love it. It's ridiculously easy to snap on any of my masks and it adds a pop of fun color to anything I'm wearing.

Plus it shipped super fast! (Also, if you're curious, the face mask I'm wearing is from Old Navy, which is selling five-packs for $12.50; I find them very sturdy and comfy.)
