After Shave Balm or Primer?

I recently used the Nivea After Shave Balm as a primer for a makeup look and loved the result so much that I decided to dedicate an entire post to this discovery. Several beauty gurus have showered praise upon this product for its priming properties and they are absolutely right! This balm has a semi-fluid consistency and a few drops are sufficient for covering the entire face. The key property is the sticky texture which allows the foundation to adhere to the skin and makes it stay in place the entire day. The stickiness might feel a little uncomfortable upon application but once you apply the makeup it will be fine.

The mild fragrance may seem a little manly but disappears within a few minutes. This is an extremely affordable alternative to a regular primer and is priced at only INR 235 for a 100ml bottle, which will definitely last you for months. It might not be able to mask giant pores but extends the longevity of makeup by hours while hydrating the skin. Additionally, this product is designed for sensitive skin and does not contain alcohol. So save your money and try this balm instead of splurging on high-end primers. I promise that it will not encourage the growth of facial hair 🙂

Here is the look that I created using this primer.
