A Beauty Blogger Guide to Silky Smooth Skin

nivea sensitive post shave balm

Okay, so I’m going to let you guys in on a little not-so-secret, secret. The Nivea for Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm is 100% worth the hype, when applied as a primer.

I’ve trialed and tested a number of moisturisers and primers, but have never discovered that 1 product which would really help my make-up to endure the length of a long working day.

Until now, anyway…

I’d read hundreds of blog posts and articles about this product working as a primer.

You see, I have combination skin, which makes my face oily in all of the wrong areas and extremely dry in patches when I’ve applied my Estée Lauder foundation for a few days in a row.

The Nivea post shave balm is an unlikely choice but is extremely nourishing and sinks into the skin beautifully.

The one thing that surprised me was the fact that the product helped my make-up to stay in place for the entire day, as opposed to my face ‘sliding off’ (which it has done with other primers).

Besides working miracles throughout the day, when a full face of make-up is removed before sleeping, the skin is still incredibly soft.

My conclusion? The Nivea post shave balm is an absolute investment, and should definitely be an essential part of the average beauty bloggers morning routine, prior to applying make-up.

  1. I’ve been meaning to pick this up! I have combination skin too & the Estée Lauder foundation shows off a few of my dry patches too. 😕

  2. I love the Nivea post shave balm too! It feels so light and refreshing! I forgot I had it in my beauty collection and after reading this post I’m right back to loving it again 😁
    And I don’t mind the ‘man scent’ either lol!

  3. Yea – I’ve seen the hype on this and consequently tried it myself. All around great product (with multiple – possibly unintended uses :). I too have oily/combo skin – which is also helps. Thanks for the post!
