Okay, good, we’re on the same page – so let me blow your mind by telling you that this Monistat Chafing Powder Gel is now here to replace my favorite (expensive) Smashbox face primer, FOREVER.
I promise you I haven’t gone crazy, and if you’re like my friend Liz then I also need to say… no, this isn’t a joke. lol.
You read it right. I am 100% recommending that you put crotch cream on yo’ face.
Okay, it’s not REALLY crotch cream, but it’s from Monistat, and you know when you hear that brand the first thing you think of is anything that has to do with issues going on down in your lady town.
So even though this chafing relief powder gel can really go anywhere on your body to prevent rashes or irritation from daily skin friction… it still screams “crotch cream” to me😬
1. It’s literally got the same active ingredient (dimethicone). This is the thing that creates a barrier between your skin and your makeup. It fills-in imperfections, evens out skin texture and then has the ability to allow your makeup to hover over itself, resulting in a smoother, longer wear!
Honestly don’t know how I ever lived without primer – it makes the biggest difference.
2. It’s about… $30 cheaper!!! Yup, you can grab this Monistat Chafing Powder Gel from Amazon for less than $6!
3. The consistency is totally identical. Silky smooth and it feels SO good on the skin!
4. It doesn’t clog your pores or irritate the skin. After over a month of trying the Monistat out myself (on highly sensitive, acne prone skin), I can proudly say that I’ve had zero reaction and no breakouts from replacing my Smashbox primer with the Monistat gel!
Thanks to a reader who asked my opinion on whether or not this comparable could be a “real thing”, because it sparked the face-primer-trial that will now be saving me over $30, every other month or so! WHOO-HOO!
Seriously guys TRUST ME, if you love the Smashbox Primer, you’ll be totally amazed at how closely this $6.00 Monistat Chafing Powder Gel compares.
Give it a try – it’s TOTALLY worth it!
