Looking for disposable masks

Has anyone purchased some they can recommend? Online reviews are so mixed for everything I've found that it's hard to know what to trust. I'm cheap so I hate to spend the money when I have reusable masks, but the disposable one I tried was SO MUCH more comfortable than anything else I've tried. It was much more lightweight, breathable, and because it had string for the ear loops it didn't irritate my ears like the elastic does after awhile. I'm not a fan of the string tie ones either because they just slip down on hair/won't stay up. My cloth ones are fine for errands, but with having to wear it for hours and hours at school I think it's worth it to pay for something that's more comfortable.

Check your pharmacy. I was at Walgreens last week and saw they had disposable masks for sale in bulk. I think 35 per pack.

Iíve ordered from Amazon several times from different vendors. All the masks look good. I try to buy a box of 50 every 2-3 weeks. Shipping has been much better lately!

I think I got the same bunch as Juliet at Staples. I was working with a girl who went through 4 washable masks and was so irritated by each one (she was pretty sensitive) and when I gave her one of mine she was fine the rest of our time together. She said it was way better than the others she had. It was really cost-effective. This looks like the pack I got https://www.staples.com/disposable-e...oduct_24442448 and it was on sale (at the time) for under $30.

My surgical masks are from Amazon, they are so much more breathable and the loops on the ears are also much more comfortable than cloth masks. I can’t wear them for long though because they move all around.
(I bought mine back in September for a school project and paid $8 on Amazon for a pack of 50. The same pack is now $30. Insane!)

If you look on Amazon for masks made by Martex those have been the best cloth masks I’ve found yet. They have nice thin ear loops that don’t irritate my ears. They are available on Amazon but here’s what they are:
