Nivea Men Post Shaving Balm – Review

Hello my friends!

If you are an Youtube binge watcher, like me, then you for sure, heard about Nikkietutorials, and how she uses the Nivea Post Shave Balm as a primer. Yes, a men product as a primer, all over our faces underneath our makeup.
However, when I first saw her video raving about this products I was like, what? Are you seroius? But looking deeper into it, it’s all about the glycerine that this product contains that makes makeup “stick” to your face.

Well, I’ve been trying this for a few weeks now, and for the first week I’ve tried it, every single day, so I think I’ve already made my opinion about it.

It is amazing! Literally, is the best product I’ve ever tried as a primer, that makes my makeup last up to 12 hours without smudging or looking bad. I Don’t know if you can relete to this, but, usually after a whole day of wearing a makeup when I go to take it of at night, is like my skin ate it, you can barely see any product coming of onto my cotton pads. With the Post Shave balm this doesn’t happen. All the makeup I apply  in the morning, the same amount, comes of onto the cotton pads at night.

My makeup goes on smoother, and even if it doesn’t control my oily face, my oils come through as usual, but without making the products melt or smudge on my face.

Watching some reviews, girls  had a problem with the manly scent of it, but for me, it doesn’t smell that intense, and it doesn’t even smell after applying it on the skin, it’s not really an issue.
It comes into a glass bottle, but you can always depot it, if you have to travel.

This products has a light, milky consistency and until it dries on the skin, it is a little bit sticky, but trust me you should really give it a try.

Let me know your thoughts if you tried it or you’re thinking on trying it. Hope I was helpful somehow. See you soon ❤


Men may come and go, but makeup is forever.

    post shaving stuff as primer… hmm that’s a bit out of my comfort zone 🙂
    can’t say i’m eager to try this one out, but i don’t use much primer as it is :d
    if this one works is a great alternative to regular primers.

    I’ve heard this is a great primer! I actually used to use this for after shaving my legs lol. I might have to try it as a primer though and experiment. 🙂 xo
