Default Mustaches and snorkeling

Okay, another snorkeling equipment question. My husband has a mustache (hope Im spelling that right) and had trouble with the snorkel mask leaking when we snorkeled in Aruba. I want buy him something that wont leak. I really dont want him to shave it. What kind of mask would be good for him?

Default facial hair and snorkelling

Try either some vaseline or food grade silicone lube liberally applied to said mustache prior to snorkelling. Works like a champ

Vaseline works well. That is what I use.
