There have been a lot of rumours going round that the Nivea Men Post Shave Balm works as a primer, so I thought I would trial this and get back to you. I’ve been using it on and off for the past month or so and I’ve got to say I like it!
When make up is first applied:
As you can see the primer leaves a dewy finish, which I really love for the summer!
After 8h shift:
As you can see the make up has stayed pretty well, but I am a lot shiner. If I hadn’t been in work I probably would have applied some power, especially down my T-Zone.
Overall, I like this primer! It’s a good cheap alternative and works for everyday! However, I would say that if you have large pores (like me) to apply a pore minimising primer on your problem areas. However, I wouldn’t recommend it for long wear or for special occasions!
Have you tried this as a primer? How did you find it?
Hope to see you around,
