Hey ladies, how many of you like to save money? I know that money is tight with a lot of families right now, so I thought I would fill you in on an amazing money-saving tip that I just discovered. Let me tell you about this amazing tip.

 How many of you use makeup primer before applying your foundation or powder? I am guessing most of you do. Primer helps get your skin ready for your foundation by smoothing out your complexion and reducing the size of your pores. It also helps your makeup to stay on longer. The only problem with using primer is the price. Primer can be a bit costly, and if you use it often it can really add up. I was browsing Pinterest and I came across an article about how women are starting to use Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as their primer, and are LOVING it! I became curious and started browsing for more info. They say that the anti-chafing gel leaves their skin smooth and makes their pores appear smaller. They also say that by applying the gel before they put on foundation and powder, it helps keep their makeup on longer and keeps their skin from becoming oily for a long time. Anti-chafing gel is actually used in primers and BB creams to help them stay on longer.Chelsea crockett primer 2

            I was so excited to try this out! I went to my local Walgreens and picked up a box of the Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel for about 6$. It is usually located near the tampons and such. I came home and applied a little bit to my skin before applying my foundation and powder, and was amazed! The gel really does make your skin smooth and it really does keep your skin from becoming too oily! I totally recommend this product to any of you ladies who either have oily skin or just want to keep their makeup lasting all throughout the day.


Give it a try!
