I dunno about where y’all live, but in central SC it is H-O-T!!! I don’t mean slightly warmer than usual. I mean fry an egg on the ground, my a/c can’t keep up, don’t run the dryer during the day kind of hot. Our heat indices are routinely above 100° F, which means our humidity levels are ridiculous. I need a mask tonight that is going to calm and cool my poor face skin haha
Luckily, I had a order from Walmart come in today. I think I got four or five different types of masks. Walmart has a great selection of any type of face mask you could need or want. They are great quality and easy on the wallet, too! Tonight’s choice is 7th Heaven Creamy Coconut, from Montagne Jeunesse, for dry and tired skin. Haha that’s me! A mask, just for me! They know my life haha
This mask claims to create a hydrating vitality boost. It was very creamy and smelled GREAT! What I wasn’t expecting was for this to burn like heck fire on my upper lip! Holy frijoles … it burned!! I scanned the ingredients to see if there was something crazy that might be causing it. There wasn’t. I decided to stick it out, and the burn faded after a minute or two. This mask is cruelty free. I talked to my hubby on the phone while it dried, then went to the bathroom to rinse and survey the damage to my poor upper lip.
That’s me being annoyed that it’s burning, by the way. I was very surprised to see zero redness where I felt burning. None. Zero Zip. I was a little shocked, considering what I felt. But hey, I’m not gonna argue with the facts. My face feels soooooo gooooood y’all! Days like today can really aggravate my fibro, so anywhere I can find some comfort I am going for that. We’re just starting with days like this, so I need to load up my trick bag!! Funny enough, hot weather aggravates my fibro, cold weather aggravates my RA. Can’t win for losing hahaha
Despite feeling like my upper lip was literally on fire for a minute, I really liked this mask. Confusing, I know. Welcome to my life! I love how my skin feels and the burn only lasted a minute, truly. The outcome was worth the bit of initial discomfort. And for $1.14 … come on. This feels better than more expensive masks I’ve used, that’s for sure.
What do you do to comfort your skin on insanely hot days? How do you stay cool? What do you do when you can feel your body starting to fight itself? Lemme know!
