Getting your makeup to stay on and have your skin look smooth and hydrated can often be difficult as we start to age. Occasional dry patches and enlarged pores are issues that we all deal with and are simply a part of changing hormones and skin.  These things can really effect the way your makeup looks and ultimately effect your confidence.

Using a makeup primer or prep can really help get the results you want from your makeup, offering extra smooth results and aiding in keeping your makeup on longer.  A primer evens out your skin tone, fills in fine lines and pores and perfects the look of your skin in seconds flat. The only problem is that the best primers are often priced north of $40 BUCKS making it an item that many of us choose NOT to invest in.

Well, I am here to tell you that there is a $6 product that you can find at your local drugstore right now, that has the same active ingredients as the leading brands of make up primer and offers the same exact results. You make want to squeeze it into an unmarked jar to avoid any embarrassment from your roommate or significant other, but that is a small price to pay for a $35 savings and perfect complexion  results.

Monistat Soothing Chaffing Cream, often used for inner thigh chaffing, has a growing and loyal following as a makeup primer because it’s identical to SmashBox Photo Finish Primer. This $6 wonder tube, is safe and effective under makeup and can quickly make you look years younger. And at just $6 it certainly worth trying.
