No, this isn't used to treat yeast infections and has nothing to do with hoohah infections in any form (hee hee!). It's just chafing gel and has the same exact active ingredient used in eye primers. That ingredient is Dimethicone.
Many women have been using this product as a face primer and/or an eyeshadow primer and swear by it.I decided to give it a try and bought a tube from drugstore.com. You can read the reviews on that website and see that some are for using it as a makeup primer. :-)
I don't need a face primer so I used this product as an eye primer no different than I would apply my Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
The gel is colourless (mostly clear, semi opaque) and odorless. The texture is very smooth and silky. It's not greasy at all and it rubs down to a soft, almost velvety, feel. I really love the way it feels.
I used it for a few days by itself (you only need a tiny bit, if you use too much it can become cakey and bead up, a little goes a long way) as well as tried it on one eye with the other eye using the TFSI so I could compare the two. While they both kept my makeup from creasing about the same, I immediately noticed a difference in how much better my eyeshadow applied and blended.
I am in love with this Chafing Gel! Seriously, I like it better than Too Faced Shadow Insurance! My eyeshadow glides on like butter, blends like a dream and it doesn't crease! I still use my Detrivore Eye primer and Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy on top for extra POP and it actually helps them both blend more evenly too. I let the chafing gel set for about 30 seconds before applying my other primers on top.
Why I love this Chafing Gel and recommend you try it:
- Works better (for me) than Too Faced Shadow Insurance (can't say for UDPP because I have never tried it)
- Huge 1.5 ounce tube (if used as just an eye primer, will last you FOREVER!)
- Costs about $6-$8
- Has only 5 ingredients which is way less than Too Faced Shadow Insurance and Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Has no parabens unlike UDPP (which is why I never tried UDPP)
I'd say the only negative thing is that the brand is Monistat. I don't care about that, but I know some people will. You shouldn't let that scare you away from trying it. Just remember that even though it is made by Monistat, it has nothing to do with yeast infections or the private area. It's just a basic gel to help with chafing (which can happen anywhere on the body). You can always buy a tube and transfer it into a jar so you don't have the issue of the label that may be considered embarrassing to some.
