I am definitely up to try anything, especially if that anything promises to keep my foundation looking perfect all day. I’ve seen the Nivea Men Aftershave Balm all over beauty blogs recently, specifically the wonderful NikkieTutorials and so I decided to put it to the test myself.
The balm does come with a manly scent however it doesn’t linger long and I don’t mind it. I followed Nikkie’s method when applying and massaged a small amount into my face with my fingers until it went tacky and then went in with my foundation.
The second greatest ingredient in Nivea Men Aftershave Balm is Glycerin, which makes products stick to each other, thus making your foundation last. I found my foundation went on well and the balm didn’t interfere with my makeup. My foundation lasted really well through the day, although it doesn’t typically slip and slide, I did feel it improved the longevity.
My makeup stayed looking fresh so perhaps we should all prime like a man more often?
