Nivea Post Shave Balm as a Make-up primer????

Yea it sounds crazy but it works!!!!! I have not always used a primer but when I started I wondered, how did I go so long without using it?

Prepping the skin makes your make-up not only look good but last longer. I have used Sleek primers, Smashbox, NYX, Maybelline and many others. I'm always on the look out for new things and trying new things when it comes to skincare and the likes. Glycerin is the second ingredient in this product and this is hydrating and helps your make-up stick and stay in place.

When I heard of the post shave balm I thought 'yea right'. I watched videos on youtube and read  a million reviews, well maybe 10. Everyone had nothing but good things to say about it, with people from dry, combination, normal and oily skin. The one thing I noticed people were saying was to make sure you work it into the skin until it gets tacky, THEN apply your make-up.

It was on sale in my local Supervalu store one day and I think it was 4 or 5 euro, so I thought why not. If this works it will be the cheapest and largest primer I own and if not I will give it to my dad!! I purchased the sensitive one with 0% alcohol(that is always a plus). 

When I first put it on I was like this smells like a man!!! It felt really good and refreshing on the skin. I had seen a video comparing this to the Makeup Forever hydrating primer. I rubbed it in until it felt tacky and applied my make-up. The 'man' smell disappeared and my makeup looked good. I went on about my business that day and it did last very long with my make up not getting patchy. 

It is in 100ml glass container and a little goes a longgggg way, so its a winner. Try it out and let me know what you think,
