The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 has been shocking, saddening, and unfathomable. In the early days, so many people thought we’d be back to normal by the end of the year. Now we know that we’re living in a new normal that affects each and every one…
One of those new norms is wearing a mask when out and about. To me, it seems that social distancing and masks are here to stay. Since that’s the case, wearing a mask that is breathable and comfortable is so important! That’s why I was glad for the opportunity to test out the Body Helix Ultra Light Face Mask, and I’m sharing my review with you!Running with a mask is the new normal! I'm digging the @body_helix Ultra Light Face Mask, check out my review! #bodyhelixbr #bibchat Click To Tweet
As I’m sure you’ve seen, there are so many different masks to choose from disposable medical masks, DIY cloth masks, etc. The Body Helix Ultra Light Face Mask is unlike any that I’ve seen with the following design features:
The mask comes in two colors (black, cool blue) and in 3 sizes (small, medium, large). You can also purchase additional filters and nasal bridge wire strips.
I was really excited about the opportunity to wear this mask. When the pandemic hit, I got a cloth mask pretty early but I find it to be extremely uncomfortable and almost suffocating. I’ve also worn buffs around my mouth but since I usually wear them on my head, they’re too loose to stay secure (big head strikes again!). Comfort has been a real challenge for me.
I’ve gradually started to spend more time in public areas over time and along the way, I’ve brought the Body Helix mask with me. I’ve tested it on several neighborhood walks and hikes with my family. It’s amazing! The fact that it prevents fogging is huge for me as a glasses-wearer. You just have to make sure to apply the nasal strip correctly and firmly so that it stays in place. I wore it on a 3-mile run recently and it was so comfortable and easy to breathe! I was really impressed. I even wore it when I went for a massage. While lying face-down on the table, I was able to stay comfortable in the Body Helix face mask. The mask would be great to use for any kind of errands and/or working out.

Another day, another hike! This time we headed to Ridley Creek State Park. Baby E was much more interested in taking in the sights and didn’t have a single nap! This trail took us up some steep elevations so it was a good workout! I wore my new @body_helix face mask for most of the hike and it worked great as I huffed up the trail! While the mask is breathable and has disposable filters included, I was a little sad I couldn’t take in all the fresh air of the woods! Did you have cooler weather today (so needed!)? Did you head outdoors for some fresh air and exercise? #RWNR #fitbloggroup #sweatpink #optoutside #bibchat #BodyHelixBR #ospreypacks #blackgirlshike
Here’s a video that shows exactly how to set up your mask. Make sure that the disposable filter covers all the holes, otherwise you won’t be protected! You also have to be mindful that when you fold up/put away the mask, be careful not to lose the nasal strip! And after each use, just toss the filter and throw it in the washing machine while laying flat to dry.
Hopefully, I’ve convinced you that this mask is worth adding to your collection. It helps me feel safe and secure in this strange new world we’re living in! The Body Helix Ultra Light Face Mask costs between $19.99 and $24.99. Replacement filters and nasal bridge wire strips come in a set for $14.99. Use code BR15 to save 15% on any order over $40! The code expires on October 31, 2020. Let me know if you have any questions!
