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

Recommended Posts

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?

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

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.

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

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.

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...

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!

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!

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. :)

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:

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.

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.

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:
