Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

post #1 of 725
Thread Starter 
I was reading on another makeup board that this works as a great foundation primer for a lot of ladies, so I was wondering if any of you ladies have ever used this. If so, what did you think?

Um, isn't monistat for yeast infections? How is it supposed to work?

i never thought to use it as a foundation primer. just seems kinda strange to me to do so.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I would have a hard time doing it......if someone presented the idea outside of the package and I didn't know what it is, I might go for it. I just got a sample in the mail. US residents can get samples at http://www.soothingcare.com/soothing...ple_buffer.htm

It's not the medication. It's a powder gel for chafing of delicate areas. It's not medicated.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

That seems odd to me, I'd rather buy a primer, then use that. I would only use that if my crouch is chaffing! hehe lol!

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

Oh, I was going to say, how weird. I bet it has dimethicones, which is in primers. Anyone have an ingredient list?

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I use this as a primer, and I LOVE it. I got the recommendation from another beauty board and it does work every bit as good as any type of primer you can buy. My liqiuid foundation goes on so smoothly, it's wonderful! Now, it is NOT the yeast infection medication. It's an anti-chaf clear cream (that dries to a very silky finish) that is made by the makers of Monistat. You'll find it down that aisle of Walgreens. Now, for the ingredient list....

Cyclopentasioloxane, dimethicone, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone, crosspolymer, silica, tocopheryl acetate and trisiloxane.

This sounds great and inexpensive!!! I just want to know for those that tried it is it okay for those with oily skin? :satisfied:

Oh lordy, this sounds like something I might try. Thank goodness stores now have those self-checkouts. :)

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I tried it and thought it was an exact dupe for Smashbox Photofinish Primer. I am not a fan of foundation primers, but for those who are this might be an inexpensive alternative.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I just looked this up on drugstore.com, and one woman mentioned she used it for a mu primer in the cust. reviews! She said it was like DHC velvet coat, I think...

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I read about this on MUT about 2 weeks ago. A new member inquired about primers and someone responded by saying they used the Monistat anti-chaffing gel. It has the same ingredient as expensive primers--silicone. She said an MA suggested it to her. Cost all of $6.39 at Walmart. I'm luvin it! I'd sampled MAC Prep + Prime Face-- $19.99, loved it, but purchased this instead. I do not need to touchup with powder during the day, no shine.:satisfied: What a bargain!

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I just don't think I could get over the idea of applying something that is meant for down below on my face. I love my overpriced Shiseido!

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

If I try this and like it, I will put it in one of those empty bonus size clinique jars, just so I don't have to look at a monistat tube when i put on my mu. :)

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I was just looking at foundation primers and thinking "this stuff is too expensive for me!"... but now... wow... i'm so gonna get this, lol! I LOVE how much i learn here!!!

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

Hello all-
I can't help but wonder how someone came up with this idea...Oh never mind, I don't think I wanna know.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

This isn't the oddest thing I've heard. I've had to use feminine hygiene wipes to remove my make-up, and I think they work even better than other make-up remover wipes. They are way more gentle and work just as well :w00t:

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I wondered that too, pink bubbles. Who looked at the back of this box of Monistat gel and said, "hmm, this could work wonders on my face." LOL, but I have thought that too about people putting Preparation H on their faces, which I find odder than this.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

Someone probably looked at the ingredients list and realized the product had ingredients in common with their primer and decided it can't hurt to try on the face and voila, an alternative use was created.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

That might work. Let us know what you think.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

This stuff works GREAT... It matchs the smashbox primer and for the price alone it surpasses it be a mile. It leaves your skin like glass .... I never have used it for chafing in the southern region...but... under my boobs!! I have a two-fer here for sure!!!!! :whistling: :whistling:

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

I've seen this posted a few times on this board. I might try it one of these days. I am not going to go to the bother of putting it in another bottle, I have already bought regular Monistat a few times, and also far more embarrassing things, lol. When you get to be 28, you dont care anymore. :laughing:

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

Ive heard of it. its no more weird than putting roid cream on your eyes IMO. Its an anti chaffing gel but you dont have to use it for down there people chaff in all kinds of places. I know of many people that have tried it & loved it & compared it to more expensive brand primers.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

lol, Amanda. Can you imagine traveling with that and someone seeing you put something labeled "monistat" on your face? I would love to see their reaction as they put two and two together.

I think I will buy some of this today and give it a whirl. I've always thought traditional fdtn. primers were overpriced for what they are, but not very many are made (esp. in comparison to how many fdtns are out there), so they can charge a lot.

Re: Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as a Foundation Primer...

Heh. Honestly though, if I buy Monistat yeast treatment it is a bit embarrassing when it is a guy ringing you up, I always feel like he is thinking "eww gross, she has a yeast infection." The first time I bought tampons it was from a guy and I was really embarrassed, I was young. Now I am not b/c I am sure tons of people everyday buy them.
