Good Wednesday, y’all. Sigh … the past 18 hours have been awful. Last night, my daughter was bit by a snake, in the throat, while she was lying in her bed playing a video game. Yep … there was a snake in my house. Still is a snake in the house, because we couldn’t find it last night. It was small, and after it bit her, she flung it off and it hit the floor and immediately slithered under her bed. Because we couldn’t identify the snake, and because of where it bit her, I decided an ER visit was absolutely in order. Luckily, we weren’t there long, considering. I think from start to finish, we were there three hours. And we got into a room immediately. They do not play around when you say snake bite. There are four varieties of venomous snakes in my area, we ruled out three instantly. One, however, was a possibility. So, they needed to monitor her vitals, and keep an eye on the bite. A lot of baby snakes cannot control their venom, so their bites can be more dangerous. Thank goodness it turned out to be non venomous kind, based on how she was in the ER. The unfortunate thing is my daughter already disliked living out in the country. This experience really cemented that for her, and I get it. She was in her bed, a supposed to be safe space, and was bitten, by a snake, of all things. Physically, she is fine, now. Emotionally, she is pretty shattered. A college student has never been more happy for move-in day than her right now. Needless to say, I didn’t get to post last night.
Considering everything that transpired over the last 18 hours, I thought I would try a new mask in my collection. I ordered the calamine based mask from I Dew Care a few weeks ago and figured calming was exactly what I needed haha.
It has a kind of jelly consistency, different than other clay masks I’ve tried. It smells about like you’d expect a calamine mask to smell. Not great, but not terrible … like calamine lotion.
This was a 10-15 minute commitment, and that’s just about perfect. It gets quite tight as it dries, similar to how a peel-off mask gets. A simple warm water rinse and it was done. I didn’t notice an immediate difference, but I think that’s because removing this mask took a bit of work, and that made my skin red, of course. I looked at it after about an hour and it looked pretty good. I didn’t take an after picture, because they always add to my redness, for some reason. I dunno if it’s the lighting in my house, or what, but my face always looks redder in photos that it actually is. I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it. My skin also feels surprisingly hydrated. Some clay masks can be drying, but this one isn’t at all.
I see you, I Dew Care! And I’ll be looking into your other masks. I’m pretty happy with how my skin looks and feels tonight. My only complaint is I wish it smelled better. Calamine isn’t a bad smell, it just kinda smells like clay. I wish this had a slight floral scent, or something. But, that’s just personal preference and has nothing to do with how the mask performs.
Have any of you tried any of the I Dew Care skin care products? What do you think about them, if you have? Let me know!
