Shhh... It's a beauty secret!

Hello everyone!

Today I want to share one of my beauty "secrets" with all of you.  For the past four or five months, I've been using Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm as a primer.  Primers are meant to help your make-up apply smoother and stay on all day. (Read Primer 101)

The online beauty community has been raving about this product for a while, and now I am too.  The trend was started by YouTube beauty vlogger NikkieTutorials, who uploaded a video in March 2015 talking about the product.

Using this as a primer is a great idea.  Since the product contains glycerin, it helps make-up stay on much better than traditional primers.  For more information about glycerin, read this post: Vegetable glycerin for glowing skin!  truly believe that this balm is a much better primer than the actual silicone-based primers I was using before

If you are looking for an affordable primer that works, try this.  You will not regret it!  Tell me, what is your favourite primer?  


I'm a vegan with a passion for sustainability and clean, cruelty-free products. I mainly write lifestyle, wellness and self-care articles. Since I'm a true crime enthusiast, sometimes I also write about true crime and post videos on my two YouTube channels.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! If you ask a question I will answer it asap. – Cosette
