This week i tried out the infamous Nivea after shave balm which has been hailed by Nikki Tutorials and other beauty lovers like Kylie jenner as a cheap option for primers. It has even been recommended as a moisturiser for those with oily skin.
Now i have extremely dry skin with a oily t zone so i thought this primer would be the ultimate holy grail to keep my makeup in place and looking fresh.
In the video below i prime my skin with the aftershave and applied my makeup as usual with no changes to my routine. The makeup was applied at 8am and i show you the final results at 6pm.
Now this is not my first trial with this product…i used t in gothenburg during my BlackVogue makeup and hair classes and ended up looking very sweaty in the face within two hours of application. I believed that it was due to my running around and stress but i got the exact same results this time around as well leading me to believe that this product is very unsuitable for my particular skin type…unless the glazed donut look is making its way back into fashion.
Anyway have a look at the video below and let me know your thoughts on this matter….am i rocking the dewy look well or was it a massive fail?
