A Perfect Primer from the Least Likely Place...

When my sister-in-law told me to try Monistat Chafing Relief Powder Gel as a primer, I have to admit I was extremely skeptical.  Perhaps it's the fact that my family is always pulling pranks on each other or the fact that when I think Monistat my mind tends to wander elsewhere.  Either way, I was apprehensive about this product.

I was happy to find that online people were raving about this product as well, making me realize that perhaps it was worth trying.  So on my next trip to Target, I grabbed a tube for $7 and tried it out for a week.  And...the results were pretty surprising...

This product definitely worked just as well as some of my other primers - including my go-to Philosophy product.  It has the same effects for 1/3 of the price.  I had some concerns initially because I have sensitive skin and small changes can make my skin react in strange ways.  However, I didn't have any breakouts, it's not greasy, and it does the same thing as other primers by minimizing pores and making skin look more even.  Seriously, this is one secret that I'm very glad my sister-in-law shared with me. 

The only bad thing about this product is that it's hard to find - when I've looked for it elsewhere it's almost always sold out!  That leads me to believe that even more women have found out about this hidden treasure.  So look past the name and pick up a bottle - it's amazing!  

XOXO, Allison
