The time has come to put men products on our face, for the sake of makeup. It sounds scary -doesn’t it? Well I’m here today to tell you that I’ve tested this new theory going around in the internet regarding male face products, and it actually works. For those of you who’ve been living under a rock, NikkieTutorials on Youtube discovered that the Nivea Post Shave Balm is an excellent face primer.

I feel like I should start with the logistics of it all. This product works wonderfully as a primer because it contains glycerin. Glycerin is the ingredient most primers have to make makeup stick to the face and to create a barrier in between makeup and skin. Simple, right?
I bought this off Amazon cause I didn’t find it anywhere in Guatemala, but in most places you can find it at your local drugstore. This product is $6 and that’s what I love most about it. It can be hard to invest in a good primer, so instead of getting something pricey, buy this.
This is honestly one of the best primers I’ve ever used. My makeup lasts super long and it looks fresh all day. This is a total bang for your buck.
The product comes in a thick glass bottle and it feels very high quality. There are 100 ml in the bottle which is a lot considering how little amount is needed for your face.
Now for application, I just pour a small amount of primer onto my fingertips and massage it all over my face. It’s important to rub the product onto the skin until it becomes tacky, to activate the glycerin. So when you feel your skin starting to get tacky that means you can move on.
I’ve heard of cases in which oily and dry skin love this product. I’ve also heard of cases in which both skin types hate the product. So it’s all about how your skin will react to the product. In most cases it works for everyone, so give it a try, it’s likely to work for you.
The last thing I want to talk about is the scent of the product. Ironically enough it’s the first think you’ll notice about the product. It smells very manly -which I love- obviously because it’s a product targeted for men. But the smell doesn’t linger for long so don’t worry about smelling like a guy. That said, if you’re very sensitive to scents or don’t like ‘manly’ scents then that’s something you should consider.
And there you have the review. If you’re on the hunt for a new primer and feel like saving a few bucks, get the Nivea Men Post Shave Balm. You’ll love it. And if you’ve already tried it, make sure to tell me what you think of it.
