I have read about how women are using Monistat's Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel as a make-up base primer. Monistat powder gel is well known as a great dupe for the Smashbox Photo Primer and any other pricey primer. Monistat is a brand that provide a medical treatment for woman who has problem with yeast infection. But to tell you the truth, this powder gel has nothing to do with yeast infection at all. For what the product claims: it is great for daily prevention and relief of chafing and irritation in delicate areas like your inner thighs, bikini area, underarms and breasts. The formula is unique: the easy-to-apply gel dries to form a silky, breathable barrier. It calms skin while preventing the irritation caused by moisture, heat and movement.

Ok, enough about v-area :D, let's talk about this "makeup miracle in a tube"
Here's my review:
This gel dries into a powder finish and creates a matte surface as soon as i apply on my face. It is also softens appearance of fine lines. Monistat make my makeup glides on effortlessly and stays on trough the day. I use a mineral makeup and i found that Monistat helps the foundation less cakey and easily spread. It is a non greasy formula, so it feels like i use nothing on my face.
$7.99USD (1.5 oz)
it is IDR 80.000
