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:

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.

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.

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.

I use it as a primer. It works, even here in swampy, muggy Florida.

 

It has almost the exact same ingredients as DHC Velvet.

 

It also has fewer ingredients than the pricey primers, and I would feel like an idiot sheep if I paid $39 for something I could get for $6.

I've never bought YI medicine, but the first time I bought tampons at a checkout with a boy, I was embarrassed, but I figured, what the hell, it's not like boys don't know about them and he probably rings up boxes of them everday, along with more embarrassing things I'm sure.

 

Getting back on topic though, does this stuff have a smell, or no?

This also works really great after you shave or wax the bikini area. It helps your clothes not rub against the sensitive areas....

 

Honestly Monistat makes alot of products, not just yeast meds. They have cleansing cloths and even a lube. I guess if it's mild enough for my virginia, it must be okay for my face. Once you get over the "monistat" mind-frame you'll love this!!

I just posted a new post about how much I liked the Dior primer, but how it was wayyyyy too much money. This is totally worth a shot; I'll look for it next time I'm at the drugstore. It's weird, but if it works and is under 10 bucks I'm sold!

Ok everyone, I just bought this stuff, only $7 or so! I'll give it a test run tom., but I tried a little on my hand, and it makes it so silky and soft. Oh, and no smell! :)

Update to my original post: I decided to bite the bullet and buy a tube. I tried it out today and yesterday, and I must say that I'm impressed. It went on very silky but not greasy or oily. It lasted all day. I don't usually wear powder or foundation, just concealer, and I barely needed to used my blotting sheets (rare for N.O.'s heat and humidity). It was fragrance free and hypo-allergenic. I would definitely recommend this as a foundation primer.

Oh, another question, have any of you girls used it on your eyelids or around your eyes? I figure it would be eyesafe considering where it is meant to go, but I wanted to ask before I got big puffy eyes. :)

Alright, so I went down the aisle he he, and couldn't find this product. The only thing that walmart had was the yeast infection medicine. Where else would it be at the store???
