Any bargain hunters out there prepared to use a men’s post shave balm in place of a regular primer?
I follow NikkieTutorials on YouTube and she swears by the Nivea Sensitive Men’s Post Shave Balm for prepping the skin for foundation.
I was intrigued and thought at just £3.49 for a decent sized bottle it was worth a go 👍🏻 .
So off I went to superdrug, down the men’s aisle and took the plunge…
I have been using the balm on myself, for a full week now and the results are really impressive. If you suffer from any oiliness during the day, this stuff will keep your foundation in place and prevent it from sliding off your face.
My skin has remained balanced and well behaved and I am pleased to report there have been no instances of any breakouts.
The product itself does have a scent to it, which I would not describe as being overly masculine, just light and fresh. The feel of the product on the skin is a bit tacky to begin with. But, after a minute or two this feeling soon disappears, with the product settling into the skin and you are good to go with your foundation.
It’s the best £3.49 I have spent in a very long time.
I am currently enjoying wearing the primer every day, over my Heliocare 360 lotion.
Thanks for reading, I hope you found this helpful.
