Experience using Nivea Men After Shave Balm Review as a Makeup Primer
It comes in a normal packaging of cardboard where all description of the product is given like ingredients, how to use and the price and all. The product comes in a glass bottle with plastic cover which you have to twist it to open. It doesn’t come in pump so you to be careful while talking out the product from the bottle. I find it messy and irritating sometimes because sometimes excess product comes out of the bottle.
The consistency of the balm is thick and liquid. You just need a little amount for the face and neck. It has a very beautiful smell and I am in love with the smell. The fragrance subsides after few minutes of application.
It’s very easy to apply on the face and it blends with in few seconds after the application. My face feels soft and smooth after applying it. But I feel something sticky on my face after the application. And when you apply foundation it feels normal.
I am using this balm almost for few weeks now. And I can say it stays pretty well on my face. I have very oily skin so I can’t expect the makeup to stay on my face for more than 5 to 6 hours without making it feels oily. But this product did a fair job for my skin. My makeup lasted for almost 6 to 7 hrs.
I can definitely say these men after shave balm works wonderful as a face primer for makeup. And it’s worth a try and it’s not that expensive and is easily available online and in stores. Moreover this product is alcohol free so it’s not going to harm the skin.
