I tried Monistat Soothing Chafing Relief Powder-Gel for the last time EVER yesterday. I used it AFTER toner and moisturizer, and BEFORE liquid foundie and mineral foundie. I swear it made me break out on my cheeks. After I took everything off and washed my face, bf was like "You're breaking out, it's really bad!". He never comments on how good or bad my skin looks, so I RAN to the nearest mirror (on my kitchen table). Lo and behold, there were fresh, white-tipped zits that popped up on my cheeks during the two hours I had Monistat on my face.
My first reaction was "FUUUUUUUUUCCCKKKKKKKK!!!!!", but I am not all serious about my skin anyway, so after a few minutes, I didn't care too much. I mean, a good foundation can always cover those effers up. I think it also dried out my cheeks too, because underneath the zits, my skin was REALLY patchy, flaky and dry.
In meager attempts to rescue my cheeks, I applied more night cream than usual (I use Lush Imperialis moisturizer), and my skin seemed to calm down by morning. There were less patches of dry skin, but the zits were still there. I used a super-blendable liquid foundation (L'Oreal True Match) on my cheeks, over NARS makeup primer. Even now, 12 hours after appying it, my foundation is intact.
I've learned my lesson. GET RID OF MONISTAT. Oh, and of course bf came up with another name...He says I need 'Vagi-Soap' to wash my 'Vagi-Face'. (-____-;)
