I now own three masks from Enchanted Rose Emporium, and they are all excellent! I need to talk a lot at my work, and many of the other masks I've tried make it very difficult for others to hear me and for me to breathe. This mask is more roomy, and it doesn't make it sound like I'm mumbling. I also don't have to gasp for air! All the while, there is also plenty of room for my beard to be tucked neatly inside the little pouch made by the mask. These masks have gotten me through these horrible COVID times! I don't know where I would have been without them!
