After reading countless blogs and watching YouTube videos that compare the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer and Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel, I finally went ahead to get the Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel as a face primer. I’ve tried the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer at our local Sephora before and I didn’t really like that it ended up slightly flakey on my skin. I thought I might as well give the Monistat one a try since it’s much cheaper. I’m really glad I did!
I didn’t even bother looking around for it in Singapore because well, at this point in time of blogging, not a lot of US makeup brands are readily available to us. If not for Sephora planting its biggest Southeast Asia’s store in Singapore, I’d never even have the chance to try out US products.
Important note: This is NOT the Monistat yeast infection product. The Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel was developed to complement the brand’s medical products. Please make sure you get the right Monistat product, don’t go applying yeast infection gel on your face, yo! O.o
