Nivea Post Shave Balm – Makeup Primer?

A few months ago my primer ran out and I was on the hunt for a new one. I ran across a YouTube video where a girl was talking about her new favorite primer. I was shocked when I saw that it was a mans post shave balm. So of course I had to go try it out for myself.

I was extremely skeptical but since this product is only around $7 it is hard to pass up. So here are my overall thoughts…

First you get a TON (3.3oz) of product. I hate there is no pump so I just poor a small amount on the back of my hand. It has a somewhat creamy texture but can get tacky once applied to the skin. The biggest downfall to most people would be the smell. This product obviously has a masculine smell to it. However, once it is on the skin it is no longer a problem for me.

As far as the durability, it is AMAZING! My makeup stays all day with no issues of shine or dry patches. I have had a few higher end primers and none compare to Nivea’s Post Shave Balm . I honestly have even thought about throwing a bottle in my freelance kit for a backup.

If you are looking for a new primer I highly recommend trying this. Let me know what your favorite primers are!
