Monistat: The Great New Primer Under $7.

Hello Gorgeous,  

You are probably thinking how could she even think of putting a gel from Monistat on her face?  This product is not related at all to yeast infections. All it does is stop chaffing. Here is the low down on this miracle gel.

What it Does:
  Dries to a powder finish.
  Creates a matte surface so makeup glides on and stays on.
  Smooths out large pores, uneven skin tone and blemishes.
  Prevents breakouts.
  Allows for much smoother for eye shadow application on mature      skin.
  Keeps make-up looking fresh by locking it in.

  Makes your face look youthful and dewy.
  Concealer glides on easily.
  Doesn't feel greasy.
  Helps mineral make up last longer and look less cakey.
  Makeup stays on for more than 8 hours, looking as good as when first applied.
  Excellent mattifier on top of any cream/lotion/sunscreen.
  Fragrance free.
  Smooths skin texture which reflects light and eliminates
    shadows (so you look younger)
  Non-pore-clogging (non-comedogenic)
  Keeps your makeup fresh in 100+ degree heat
  Gentle enough to use every day.
  Softens appearance of fine lines.

Dimethicone (1.2%)
Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate, Trisiloxane. 

Why it Works:
Dimethicone is found in Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel.   This is also found in all the high-end foundation/face primers. Dimethicone is a silicone emollient (a skin softener) that forms a silky, breathable barrier between the skin on your face and your foundation.  What dimethicone does is it acts as a barrier between your face and the foundation.  No oil will get out or in, so no more blotting your face for oil.  The other good thing is it lets your moisturizer work and your foundation won't get into your pores and clog them.

Where to Buy it:
After looking at a bunch of tutorials on youtube on this people said it is never in drugstores because of popularity.  You can get it by the loads at thou. 

What does it Cost:
$6.37  That is a great price as compared to department store brands that cost around $45 a bottle.

How to Use it:
Apply after your moisturizer and before your foundation.  EASY!  Only thing you have to do is let it dry completely before applying foundation.
