Yep. What everyone says is true. The monistat anti-chafe cream really does work the same way as the smashbox primer. I did something really cheeky with mine though, as I hate squeezing something on my face that is labelled MONISTAT... blech... when I emptied my smashbox pump, I filled it with the monistate. I know. Bad me. But I swear I cannot tell a difference between the two.

After loving a sample of Smashbox primer, I wanted some badly. I just couldn't justify spending that much. So after reading these reviews on mua, I looked for the monistat substitute. It was a bit hard to find, but eventually I got some at good ol' Walmart. For $6 and change, I think this is just as good. Granted my only other experience is with sample sizes, but still. This goes on so smooth and leaves my face soft. Makeup glides on and stays fresh looking. It helps with shiny t-zone issues too. The tube is huge and even though I've been using it for months, there is barely a dent in it. Give this a try....you may save yourself a ton of money!

Love it! I've never used any sort of primer, but i'm so completely satisfied I see no reason to even look at something 3+ times the price. I put this on after my moisturizer dries and it makes my foundation just glide on. I'm currently using Revlon Colorstay applied with the MAC 187 brush, topped with MAC Select Sheer/Loose. My makeup looks flawless, and later in the day my skin is no where near as oily looking.Edit: I've just finished my first tube, and picked up another. I've moved on to Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, and the pairing is HG! Even when my skin starts to a get a bit oily, it gets dispersed in such a way that I look dewy instead. I've tried a few primer samples, and the chafing gel still wins out.

Amazing product! I had tried Smashbox's Photo Finish with bad results (blotchiness and pimples), and then I read about this product as a primer. I'm amazed -- it does everything Smashbox was supposed to do, but without any problems and for less than a quarter of the price. Brilliant. The only thing I've noticed is that occasionally I will get little flakes on the side of the nose (but those are easily taken care of with just a touch of Paula's Choice super antioxidant serum) -- overall an excellent product!

I don't know what I would do without this product. I've been using this for a few months now, and love it. It makes my mineral make-up go on extremely smooth, and definitely makes my skin much less oily throughout the day. I've used other, expensive primers, that never did what this does. I still get somewhat oily by day end, but thats because I have extremely oily skin, and theres just no way anything is going to completely make my face matte 24/7. You cannot beat the fact that this tube lasts quite awhile, and is dirt cheap! Plus, it doesn't break me out! Its fantastic!!

I used this for 2 weeks, fell absolutely in love! Made my skin soft, and my makeup look fresh all day. Next thing I know I breakout terribly, after using this. Why me :(

Wow this stuff really works! I have always used BE's Prime Time, and was very hesitant to try Monistat. After research on youtube and MUA I finally decided to take the chance with this.I have been switching between the two prodcuts for the last few weeks. Just experimenting! Monistat glides on very smoothly, and like any primer you would only need a little at a time. I use a sponge wedge when applying this and the application is flawless. My makeup lasts all day long!To prove that it wasn't just the weather or other factors that made Monistat SO MUCH better than Prime Time, I switched between the two everyday. I would also take a look at the temperature that day. I have work and school on weekdays. I get out of the house at 8:30AM and don't come back home until 10:00PM. At night when I take off my makeup, instead of washing my face I used Olay's Makeup Wipes. On the days that I am wearing Monistat as a primer I see so much of my makeup removed by the makeup wipes. But on the day that I am wearing Prime Time, I don't see any makeup left at all! I can't believe I didn't try out Monistat sooner! I am so happy with the results! I did not break out at all! Yah! Edit: 9/30/08- This gave my nose major blackheads! It is still a great primer, but be careful if you are blackhead prone like me!

I have to say that it took me a while to try this. I did a lot of research and I saw a few complained about breaking out from this product. Having some bad acne history, I was hesitant but then looking at the expensive primers that did not work, I had to submit to this. I am very oily and this prevents from being over greasy. My Revlon Beyond Natural looks and feels great over this product. I can keep my makeup on for more than 20 hours, which is a miracle. Great product-

I have oily skin and most make up slides right off. I tried this after reading about it here. I've used it for about a week and so far it's been great. I apply it on clean skin before my mineral makeup, I find it decreases the need for touch ups during the day. I typically apply my make up at 6:30 in the morning and now I powder my nose about 1:00pm. My makeup is still looking fresh at 6:00pm. I will repurchase for sure. I will update if any breakouts or odd skin reactions occur. EDIT: I believe this clogged the pores on my chin badly. It's taken weeks to clear them up...I still love this and it's great if your skin can handle it..but no more for me *sighs
