Beauty Secret: Lanacane Anti-Chafting Gel as a facial primer

So when you first see this title, you may be thinking "what the!?", but I have to assure you, this is the best discovery I have found!!! 
Recently, I have heard a lot of talk about face primer, and never really used it. I have insanely oily skin, and nothing seemed to help it. Primer is supposed to help control the oils, so I decided to give one a try. I used Prime Time from Bare Minerals, and spent $30 on nearly no product at all. I was desperate to find a new primer, so I was looking into the Smashbox Photo Finish primer. The ingredients and nearly identical to the Lanacane Gel, and I find that the gel works so much better!!! And better yet (if that's possible), it does not make me break out like the Smashbox did! And the price difference is unbelievable.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Ingredients: Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Isopropylparaben, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbic Acid, Carthamus Tinctorium (Safflower) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Cola Acuminata Seed Extract, Propylene Glycol, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Isobutylparaben, Butylparaben, Water.

Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel Ingredients: cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, silica, tocopheryl acetate, trisiloxane.

As you can see, they have the same ingredients! I swear by this product! 

Retail Price: I picked it up at Walgreens for $6.99
Pros: Read above! 
Cons: Ugly packaging! I squeezed mine out into a makeup container I purchased online for $4.99 (
