Ma'am, Monistat gel is NOT a substitute for Smashbox! People say it 'has the same ingredients', but it doesn't! These are the Smashbox ingredients- Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Trisiloxane, Silica, Dimethicone/ Vinyldimethicone Crosspolymer, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Extract, Propylene Glycol, Water (Aqua, Eau), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Cola Acuminata Seed Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract
And these are the Monistat ingredients- Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate, Trisiloxane
They share some ingredients, but they are in different quantities and Smashbox has many more ingredients. Here is a comparison of the two- [link]
I don't know why on earth anyone would consider it an actual alternative.... Basically, it is like saying that since chlorine shares an ingredient with salt, it should work as a substitute. Please don't try putting chlorine in your food instead of salt and please do not use chaffing cream on your face!
you might want to find all of the tutorials ever that suggested this and spread the word. i suggested it because SO SO may people were using it and suggesting it. but yeah you should. definitely. find all the other ones.
Oh my goodness, that is gonna be hard! Yeah I freaked out when I saw people doing that it could be dangerous! Maybe it isn't, but all the same it certainly isn't a substitute for primer, even a cheap primer would be better! Thanks for teh link!
i think a lot of it is because many of the ingredients are the same, and they are both made for the skin that people just kind of. were like "wait yes this is perfect. yesss monistat is just as good aaah jackpot"
Yeah! I can't help but think that part of the reason people rave about it is because they WANT it to work. It is cheap after all, although I know where I can get Smashbox primer for $8(yay department store outlets) as well so that doesn't matter to me much! Maybe it even works for some peopl but I've seen too many people get horrible breakouts from it! Since it isn't made for your face it can clog your pores really easily.
right? that only thing too though is that they both are products that smooth out the skin. the only difference is that one is for a smooth canvas for makeup and the other is to eliminate any discomfort. both are effective in that way. i think it's those first 3 or 4 ingredients. but yeah i see what you mean.
