Review: Monistat Anti-chafing powder gel (as a primer)

Product Info from Monistat:
  • Non-greasy POWDER-GEL™ skin protectant formula with dimethicone. Dries to form a silky, breathable barrier to fight friction.
  • Prevents chafing and irritation caused by moisture, heat, and movement. Ideal for treating everyday intimate discomforts of athletes, plus-size women, new moms and bikini area waxers or shavers.
  • Fast-acting formula comforts chafed skin. Works with just one application.
  • Fragrance-free and non-staining.
  • Non-irritating formula with vitamin E and soothing aloe. Gentle enough for daily use on even your most delicate areas.
RETAIL PRICE: Php 500.00? Sorry forgot the exact price.

WEIGHT: 42 grams / 1.5 oz

SHADES : N/A


PROS:
* unscented
* hygenic easy squeeze tube
* feels lightweight
* non-greasy ; dries to a powder finish
* my face instantly looked matte after application
* makes my foundation & concealer glide easily
* my concealer did not crease/fade and my foundation/BB cream are still intact at the end of the day.
* can be used as an eyeshadow primer
* been using this for more than a month and so far I didn't break out.
* I think this tube will last me a long time. You only need a pea sized amount for the whole face.
* the active ingredient is DIMETHICONE, which is found in all high-end face face primers. It is a silicon based emollient that forms a protective barrier to help retain skin moisture.

CONS:
* hard to find. Not available locally.
* may cause breakouts if you're allergic to Silica & Dimethicone. Make sure to do a patch test first to see if you're allergic or not.


TIPS:
*
Apply after moisturiser. Let it dry before applying foundation or BB cream.

ADDICTION FACTOR:
If you're looking for an inexpensive primer I highly recommend this product. I've tried other face primers but this product makes my makeup last longer. With other face primers I usually notice my concealer & foundation fading after work around 6 pm, but with this even during dinner time my makeup is still intact... but take note I blot & retouch with powder once during the day. Now I'm planning to get a back-up =)

RATING : 4.5/5
