The first time I knew about using the Nivea men Aftershave balm as a primer was when Anu wrote about primers here – I did more research and I heard nothing but good things.
The thing is most primers contain the ingredient Glycerin which creates a layer between the skin and the makeup, making it last longer. The Nivea Aftershave balm contains this ingredient and it’s in fact one of highest listed ones on the bottle which means it contains a lot of it!
I’ve been using it for a while now and I’m very pleased with the results:
It is very lightweight as opposed to milk of magnesia (MOM makes your makeup feel caked)
It is also colourless so great for any skin tone
It really evens out the skin well so it will hydrate patches and even help temporarily fill in fine lines
My makeup lasts all day
Its super affordable – N1400
One thing you might not like is the manly smell – it lingers for a long time – but the smell makes my pro list because I’m into masculine scents.
