    What do you use to prevent your mask from leaking?


    1. Shave?
    2. Vasoline?
    3. Other Product?
    4. Would you buy a product specifically made to prevent leaking?


    The reason I ask is I have patented and am in the process of packaging a product that will stop your mask from leaking and Im trying to see what the demand will be......

    i swapped to a better fitting mask and used a razor to do some trim work.

    I dont think that just changing a mask will solve facial hair getting in the way of the seal......Thats why Im making this product.....I have done lots of tests and tested lots of masks....and they still leaked...Chapstick does work....and leaves a nice smell and causes a rash on some people..........

    yeah... you need a smaller mask and tighten it a bit more, and it works
