The 1st mask becomes your back up mask. Keep it in your dive bag. What you'll find is that once you are very comfortable with scuba and all our uncomfortable hear and such that in a pinch when you are forced to use the mask for what ever reason (as opposed to missing a dive or snorkel trip) that suddenly that mask isn't as bad as you remembered. It will never be your favorite, and the nose will remind you why you didn't like it, but it'll beat the heck out of NOT getting to play.
