After coming across many youtubers and bloggers talking about this, I decided, let me share what I feel about this men’s product.
I was on the lookout for a budget primer and I came across reviews of this product. Trust me! I was scared when testing this on my sensitive combination skin. So, let’s move on to how it fared for me.
Price & quantity: INR 235 for 100 ml. I got it from Amazon.in at INR 191. (Discount lover! 😛 ) Compared to other primers, this is cheap and has ample quantity.
Availability: Available in drug stores and also online all over the world.
Fragrance: ‘Manly’ is the word. Traditional aftershave lotion smell. It vanishes after a minute.
Texture & color: It is runny, white in color. Glides easily on the skin. Takes time to seep into the skin but you can work with your foundation or bb cream after applying it.
Packaging: Comes in a white plastic bottle with labelling and usual instructions. It has a screwed type cap which is sturdy. No leakage so travel friendly.
Description: The extra gentle and alcohol-free formula contains soothing and healing ingredients like Chamomile, Vitamin E and Provitamin B5 that help care for sensitive, just shaved skin. It is quickly absorbed into the skin and leaves it feeling soothed and moisturised.
Skin compatibility dermatologically approved.
How It Works
Redness-free and irritation-free skin that improves over time.
How to use product
Apply liberally on the shaved area and massage into skin.For best results, shave with the Nivea Men Sensitive Shaving Gel or Foam.
My views: I had used a BB cream, as its texture is thicker than foundations and can be used to test whether it glides easily or not. Primer is supposed to make a smooth canvas on your face, fill in pores and hold your make-up for longer time.
I apply my primer on moisturised face. At first sight, it made me look oilier. I had used it as I use my moisturiser. Waited for a minute to let it sink in, but it didn’t quite do so. So I went ahead with my BB cream. I blended everything with my fingers and I must say, it does work. The BB cream easily blended on my skin. My face didn’t have the flaky patches. I got the dewy finish which I prefer during winters. You can top it up with compact for matte finish.
What I felt-
- Smoothens the skin
- Fills in small pores. Don’t know about large ones as I don’t have any.
- Moisturises the face as it doesn’t have any alcohol,so no more drying effect.
- Provides a cooling effect
- Controls oil easily in winters for 4-5 hours for combination skin
- Didn’t cause any reaction on my eczema-prone sensitive skin.
Dry skinned beauties may need a moisturiser underneath. Oily skin can skip moisturiser entirely. Girls who have sensitive skin, can try this.For summers, I need to test it, but I guess, compact will be necessary.
Overall verdict: You can buy this! This is cheap, works well and is travel-friendly. It fills the pores to some extent and is good for all skin types.Here’s the link if you don’t find it in Indian drug stores:
