Like it or not, facial coverings are something we all have to deal with until the COVID-19 pandemic has passed. While the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) recommends cloth face masks as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling through the air, others may choose to wear an all-encompassing face shield

Vistaprint's  face shields are a popular option among our readers, and right now, you can save 20% on them when you enter promo code VPEXTRA20 at checkout. Normally retailing for $40, they drop to $32 with the coupon—that's just $3.20 per mask! 

In one of few studies done on this type of protective covering, results published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in 2014 showed that face shields can be highly effective, protecting study wearers from 96% of inhalation exposure of an "influenza-laden cough aerosol." Still, the CDC warns that it remains unknown if shields offer adequate protection against the spray of respiratory droplets.

These particular 8.75 x 13-inch shields follow the CDC's face shield guidelines by wrapping around the sides of the wearer’s face and extending below the chin. They're made of durable plastic and feature an adjustable elastic head strap and a cushioned foam bar. They're even roomy enough to allow for extra PPE underneath, such as additional masks, eyewear and more. Vistaprint notes that these coverings are designed for personal use outside of medical settings, however, and are not FDA-regulated.

While they're too new to have many reviews, the customers who have rated them seem to love them. One shopper noted that they're super flexible and adjustable, while another praised the simple design that’s easy to use.

A few tips for wear: When rocking your shield outdoors, the company recommends first washing your hands, then raising it to your face and placing the cushion foam bar against your forehead. You should place the elastic strap against the crown of your head, which will allow you to adjust it so that it fits properly and covers your entire face. To take it off, Vistaprint advises that you avoid touching the plastic exterior and rather lift the elastic strap to remove the shield. The retailer recommends using each face shield only once and properly disposing of the plastic safeguard post-contamination after use.

This promo code won’t last forever, so if you're looking for a face shield at a discount, I highly recommend nabbing these ones as soon as possible.
