As a face primer: It's just silicone, and it breaks me out terribly. For me it doesn't work at all...

5 lippies for it's intended purpose however I give it a big fat 0 for a face primer. It has almost double the amount of demitheicone as a normal primer and to me that makes a huge difference. It goes on super greasy and takes forever to dry. Once it does I feel like I'm wearing a mask and while it does make my foundation stay on forever it feels miserable on my skin. The worst part is the breakouts that I get, huge extremely painful cysts that last forever. There's so many drugstore primers out now that are the same price as this, it's just not worth it. However that overkill of silicone is great for when I'm running. Nothing prevents chaffing between my legs like this. Lanacan makes a similar product and it is no where near as good. So keep this off your face and use it how it's intended and it's worth is.

I cannot believe that I have never written a review on this product because I use it every day and have for years and even recommend it to my patients. Yes, I do use this product as a make up primer, but it is even more useful than that. For those of us who are a little on the chunky side (heavy sigh), we often get irritation under the breasts and the stomach hangover. Every day, when I hope out of the shower, I put a bead underneath each breast and under the stomach hangover and I have never had any more of that irritation. It is not greasy and protects that skin. Try it. After all, it is called "anti chafing" and it is perfect for that at an amazing price.

Now THIS is a primer! I love the review here that opines that one of the reasons this stuff is SO great is because it doesn't make a bunch of inflated promises, so maybe expectations start out lower than they might otherwise. All I know is, this is a great product for its intended use, and it also makes a FANTASTIC foundation primer. All at a price of about 6 bucks. I actually like to smooth this on after I apply makeup, on spots I want to blur and/or mattify. It's honestly like a filter for your face. I use this for what I might use a finishing powder for, and it's perfect, without making my face dry, powdery or cakey. It is silicone based, so I can see how some skins might have a problem with it. I think it always helps to remove silicones with oil, which completely dissolves and lifts away other oils. I always use an oil to cleanse, and because I have drier skin, I may or may not use a foaming cleanser afterward. My skin is still highly reactive and acne prone though, and I've never had an issue as long as I remove everything with an oil at the end of the day. I used Smashbox primer for years and I loved it - I think this product performs better.

I have been using this a my primer for years. It is amazing and the price cannot be beat. I use so much less foundation and it goes on silky smooth and creates a matte effect on my skin. my absolute HG.

Whoa...it really works! Thanks MUA for the great suggestion, because I would have never in a million years used Monistat as a primer...EVER.What I love so much about this, is the feel of this gel is much like the Palladio primer. That is my favorite one, but you don't get a lot of product from the Palladio tube. (Monistat= 1.5 oz and Palladio= .674 oz) And it's half the price! The outcome is the same smooth look and less oily skin. This is such a great alternative use for this product.

IT WORKS!!I first saw the Chafing Relief Powder Gel on Youtube and people raving about it. I have combo/oily skin so I get really oily in my Tzone. I saw this compared to Lancome La Base Pro primer which retails at about $42 vs. Chafing Gel at $6. Don't let the fact that its made my Monistat to throw you off with an Eeww factor. This product is NOT formulated to treat Yeast infections like its more commonly heard of product. Its exactly what it says: Chafing gel that can be used underarms, bikini area, inner thighs, under your breasts, wherever you may experience chafing. It has some of the active ingredients in La Base Pro (I have never tried this. Too expensive for my taste for a primer). It comes in Gel form and has a powdery finish. It kept me oil free for up to 4 hrs, catching three buses in mid July in Las Vegas in VERY humid weather. Normally with my other primers I have to touch up. My commute is a total of 3 hours catching/waiting for buses. It held up BETTER than anything I have ever used. Usually I am an oil slick within an hour (Tzone area in high humidity) even with a mattifying foundation and powder. So I only had to touch up once in 4 hours about 11am with high humidity during my commute. I have NEVER used anything (Mac Prep+Prime, Smasbox, MUFE primer etc) that did this. I didn't even really NEED to touch up, there was some slight oiliness around my nose. My face didn't feel "sweaty" and it didn't dry my skin out or change the color of my foundation. It just worked. And I will only EVER use this as a primer. $6? Come on! There is only 1 con: If you use too much it CAN separate. I noticed it the second time I used it, my foundation looked a little blotchy in some areas. I'm not nitpicky on BEAT foundation look, I go for more of a natural finished so I did notice this even with powder on. It wasn't enough to deter me as I didn't see that the first time But I know for certain I applied more the second time. At $6 this is BEYOND AMAZING. I will be buying two more.

I bought this because of all the good reviews out there. I actually didn't like it as a face primer as it caused me clogged pores. However I ended up using it under my eyes and I love it. It helps my under eye area stay smooth and soft. I use it every night, and the next day my under eyes are so incredibly soft. It makes concealer stay put all day. Im glad I found a use for this baby!
