As a make-up addict and beauty product junkie, I'm always on the search for products that actually work without spending a million bucks. Most of us know that the key to good long lasting make-up is to always moisturize and to use a primer. Now there are so many different primers out there now, it can get overwhelming and can drain your bank account trying all of them.
It was just last year I kept seeing & hearing on Youtube about this Nivea Post Shave Balm ( sensitive) for men, being used for as a primer. I had my doubts. Until NYE 2016. I was watching Youtube make up videos, trying to decide what look I might want to try for the night and again this Nivea Post Shave Balm came up. I decided to quickly run down to Kmart and to purchase it. What the heck! for a small price of $10 what did I have to loose.
Now I was concerned I was going to smell like a man for the rest of the night but it does fades away. Now what about the main concern here... is this product really a miracle worker, like all these youtubers are saying on there videos?
The answer is YES!! This has to be one of the best primers I have used yet.
You only need a tiny portion maybe the size of a 10 cent piece and it covers your entire face, as mentioned before I chose the option for sensitive skin so there was no stinging or redness after use.
I stayed out till around 3 am on NYE and danced to some true 80's tunes all night, got quite sweaty, naturally... I received so many lovely compliments all night on how nice my make up looked. My make up was bulletproof with this primer backing me up all night!
It works! Nivea Post Shave Balm Sensitive for men works as a primer. For $10 from any Kmart, Priceline or any big supermarket chain eg Coles.
If anyone has tried this or does give it a try, let me know what you think or if you know any other good make up primers!
