Overall, good. It was ordered to wear while visiting a family member who has a hearing disability. This helped a great deal, because this person relies very heavily on reading the whole face when communicating. One negative is that the loudness is reduced due to the plastic. The suggested shaving cream trick did help reduce the fogging up issue. The mask seems very well made and the fabric part is very comfortable.

As a speech therapist I really depend on a mask that has a clear piece so my clients can see me. I love that the mask doesn’t fog up like the homemade one I have. The mask protrudes a bit from my face making it easy to have clients watch my mouth. Super necessary when you work with clients with a variety of disabilities, including dead/hard of hearing. Highly recommended!

Smile mask is for helpful with people who are hard of hearing or deaf and allows for expressions. It is hotter than a regular cloth mask and the screen does fog up.

Well I can not find anyone that the masks fit. The plastic area is very wide. The mask could wrap most way around our heads. My sister is a teacher and was hoping this would help with her little ones. I believe in what you are doing and think the purchase was worth every penny. Such a great idea and love to give back. I think the other ones may just fit our small heads a little better. Thank you
Hi Bari, We are sorry the smile masks were too big. We do have a smaller size if you are interested. Please let me know. Best, Sophie Customer Service Associate
