Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm

For months now I have watched Nikkie Tutorials subsitute primer for the Nivea Men Post Shave Balm, as constantly sing it's praises. Then one by one other YouTuber's I subscribe to started to use it, so I got to thinking, does it really work?

The rationale behind using this product as a primer is quite simple and all down to one ingredient, glycerin. Glycerin is a sticky product which will bind with the makeup you apply directly on top of it, it also draws water from the atmosphere so is super moisturising.

A little goes a long way with this product, I dip my little finger tip into the bottle, and that small amount is enough for my entire face. Once applied gently massage it into your skin until it becomes slightly tacky, trust me you'll know when your there. Once you start applying your foundation, you'll notice how smoothly it applies, and how little blending you need to do. After several hours my skin looks healthy, fresh and is visibly plumper, thanks to that extra moisture, but like magic it isn't oily, and hasn't started to separate.

I picked a bottle up from Superdrug for a surprising £5.29, I don't know what I expected to pay, but compared to my usual £25.50 Smashbox Primer I felt like I was stealing it. Compared to a normal primer which contains around 30ml, the Nivea Men Post Shave Balm contains 100ml of product, which will keep you going for months.

I feel like my search for the perfect primer has come to an end, and I can save myself so much money.

Have you tried this product as a primer?
