Using a mask with inhaler & spacer

Do many of you use a mask attached to the inhaler and spacer ? My son is 8 and I purchased a mask that goes around his nose and mouth. Does anyone out there do this also, or tried it and found out it's better to place the spacer directly to the mouth?

We did the mask first, say ages 5-7, now she knows to just breathe in through the opening. Sounds like he is old enough to ditch mask and really inhale into the lungs. :)
