Review: Nivea Men Originals Post Shave Balm as a Primer!

Salam everyone!
I have finally jumped onto the Nivea Men Shave Balm wagon just like the rest of the world. I know for guys, you all must be like, "What in the world? Why are you using men shave balm for?" right? But for girls, you all must be like, "YASSSSSS GURL, YASSSSSS! ABOUT TYMEEEE!" Hahahaha memandai je. But is it really good, tho? Read on!

So here in Malaysia, we only have the Originals version and not the Sensitive one. Maybe kulit jejaka malaya kita tak sensitive kot lol. It comes in this beautiful and simple white glass bottle with a blue cap. I love that the glass makes it cam ala ala luxurious sikit. Not really lah kan but cam, sedap lah pegang hehe. And it feels kind of fancy. 

When I first opened the cap, I was all, "Oh boy! This goin' get messy!" But surprisingly tak pun. It is very easy to control. And although the texture is liquidy (as seen above), it does not come pouring out or you know, splashing everywhere. Very men-friendly *ehems. It has a very strong smell tho. Kind of smell like men's armpits after they have put on deodorant hahahahaha anyone? Some people cannot stand it but to me, it is bearable. 

It absorbs fast into the skin. It does not leave a sticky feel but it does feel like it has a strong hold to whatever you are putting on top of it, i.e. foundation. Geddit? Haha. Kena cuba baru tau eceh. It contains Glycerin which has many benefits like keeping your oiliness at bay, soothes your acne and redness, makes the skin soft and many other benefits. So if you have oily skin, try this! Tho it does not keep 100% of the oil at bay, but still, it keeps it at bay throughout the day and it makes your foundation or whatever bases you have on top of it, stay for a very long time.

Ingredients: Aqua, Alcohol Denat, Glycerin, Distarch Phosphate, Ethylhexyl Cocoate, Parfum, Aloe arbadensis Leaf Juice, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Dimethicone, Triceteareth-4 Phosphate, Sodium Carbomer, Limonene, Linalool.

Vain pictures of me using the primer. I look flawless cam airbrush gitu. 


Hmmm, what is with the same hand gesture pls???????????????????????
