beauty battle...face primer

i'm excited to announce a new series...


we all love beauty products right?!? it's no secret that i'm a total brand snob, but i also like trying new products. sometimes i hesitantly try something new, and sometimes i run right out to the store as soon as i hear about it.

besides skincare, the first thing i put on my face is primer so beauty battle #1 is

i know what you're thinking, and yes, i'm serious. apparently monistat chafing gel has the same ingredients as smashbox face primer for a lot less $$$. i very reluctantly tried it, and i was so impressed. i really like it a lot. i've been using it for about a year. it lasts a really long time, and feels the same on my face as other face primer.
about a month ago i bought a bare minerals kit that included their primer. i also really like it a lot. it feels very similar to the chafing gel. there really isn't a lot of difference EXCEPT the price. i'll use it because i have it. once it's gone, i will most likely go back to the grocery store brand monistat chafing gel.

do you use a primer? what's your fave?



  1. I've been looking for a really good primer. I think I am going to try the chafing gel! I'm heading to the grocery store today.

  2. I've never really used primer on my entire face, just my eyelids!

  3. Every time I've used primer I break out all over my face! I've been wanting to try the monistat but don't want a huge acne outbreak again lol
