SAVE MONEY, PREVENT WRINKLES
Aquaphor - buy at local drugstore - approx $8.50
At night you don't need to worry about eye treatments
smearing your makeup, so slather on the richest formula you can. Polis swears by Aquaphor: "It conditions lashes and hydrates the delicate eye skin really well."
Monistat chafing gel - local drugstore $6 (approx)
In the aisle with the tampons, theres a product called Monistat chafing gel.. its the exact same thing as an expensive primer, it cost 6 bucks a tube. Sounds a little weird, but check it out!
Big important F.Y.I.: This is not the Monistat yeast-infection cream; please don't go rubbing that stuff on your face. This anti-chafing balm's main ingredient is the same as many foundation primers': dimethicone. It also contains Vitamin E and aloe, and it's fragrance-free and formulated to let skin "breathe".
The Monistat gel has a nice texture--sort of powdery, as its name implies. It made my skin matte and soft, and my foundation and pimple concealer went on smooth and seamless. I set both with a dab of translucent powder. Check it out: No pores or pimple here!
