You’re probably thinking, “A men’s shave balm as a makeup primer? No way!” But it’s true. This genius hack is taking the beauty world by storm for one simple reason: it really works!
We did a little research about why celebrities and makeup artists are swapping their traditional makeup primer for NIVEA Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm and it all comes down to one ingredient: Glycerin. This is the active ingredient in the shave balm and it miraculously works as a ‘glue’ that keeps makeup in place all day long. That means that flawless face you spent time perfecting in the morning will look just as good when it’s time for after-work cocktails. Heck, it might make it through your 8pm dinner reservation! Who doesn’t want that?
Even better, the NIVEA Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm is also filled with good-for-your-skin ingredients like Vitamin E and Chamomile, so it hydrates and softens for a smooth, healthy-looking complexion.
Consider yourself warned. If there is one item you must add to your makeup bag ASAP, it’s this super affordable shave balm that doubles as a makeup primer. A 3.3 oz. bottle is only $5.99, people! Thank us later.
