If you have combination/ oily skin and have always wondered why your makeup looks cakey or just doesn’t last too long. You need to add an important step to your foundation routine – PRIMER. I know there are many of you who have not considered using a primer at all. Well, it’s never too late. I wasn’t sure which primer should I try out and after searching a bit, I decided to settle on Monistat Chafing relief powder gel.
Price: $5.98 at my local Walmart but I had a coupon and ended up paying 4.98. So this costs approximately $5
Quantity: 1.5 oz/ 42 gms
Product claims: The product claims to other things 😀 😀 but as the name suggests it is a powder gel. So the gel on application, turns into a smooth powder like on your skin
Ingredients: The most important ingredient Monistat has is Dimethicone and that’s why this works great as a primer
My experience with the product: The area of the skin where this product is to be applied is equally sensitive as our face. Monistat doesn’t have any fragrance at all and this is mentioned clearly on the tube. It comes in a clear gel form in a flip top tube. The flip top is a little flimsy so you need to make sure that it’s shut close properly. It once oozed out in my makeup bag. And the product itself feels very smooth when you apply it on your skin. And you can immediately see that your pores start to disappear. It sort of fills in your pores and makes the skin even. And moreover when you apply a foundation, it glides on smoothly. The foundation application becomes a lot easier. With Monistat, it’s less of a work to apply the foundation especially when you are in a rush. As the day goes by, you’ll notice that the oiliness doesn’t show through the foundation. It helps to control the oiliness to an extent. To conclude, I can say that using a primer helps the makeup application easier and lasts longer. Anyone who’s not tried a primer, I would say this is a good product to start with.
