Monistat as Primer
Sep 18, 2006
I just researched this topic a whole lot, first because I really wanted to know what a primer is in the first place, how to apply it, and how much they cost.

I noticed that there are only a handful (if that many) primer brands out there and they seem extremely expensive. Most are only found online.
The one people talk about the most is Smashbox and a tube or whatever is almost $40. I personally would [I]never[/I] spend that much on a single beauty product. That's insane.
So I researched Monistat instead since it's apparently very similar. A lot of people say it works as a primer, and than there are others who think it's "digusting" or "not good for skin." If it was designed for skin, why would it be so bad for the face? I don't get it.

I recently ordered a free sample of Monistat and tried it this morning. I'm not sure whether or not it makes that much difference since I didn't use a whole lot. I only applied a couple of small drops on the redness area around my nose and cheeks (large pores).
It appears to make my pores less visible, but I'm not 100% certain on that since I've only tried it once so far.

So I was wondering, is Monistat actually safe to use on the face? Will it clog pores like some people say? The last thing I want is more clogged pores since I try really hard to keep my face clean and I exfoliate/moisturize religiously.
I'm also wondering whether it actually makes a difference as far as pores go? Does it make them less noticable?
I hate the ones I have on my cheeks since they're kinda large, and applying certain types of make up just makes them more obvious.

I'm debating on whether or not I wanna go out and buy Monistat since I don't want it to ruin my skin... and I also don't want to buy something that won't make a difference.
