Hello lovers,

If your reading this.. thank you for coming back again.

First of all, I’m sorry for not posting any blogs. I said I will do it any Wednesday or Sunday but I just started my new job in &#X1f1ec&#X1f1e7 !!!

But I found my routine now and I’m ready to write!

I think  you probably already also seen it on social media, beauty bloggers and makeup artists using the Nivea After Shave Balm as a primer?!

My first 2 reactions were: ”Is she crazy?” and ”Did I just buy a 35 euro primer for nothing?”

So I’ve been starting trying this out as you maybe have seen in my youtube videos.

It got my attention for a while but never really tried it. Too be honest I was not really using a primer at all. They scare me a bit.

I used so many primers already. Smashbox, Urban decay, Tom Ford and for some reason I never find one for my skin. Or they give me breakouts, or made me look so shiny like I just finished the gymn had major work out. And trust me, those workouts don’t happen a lot!

I used too love the Smashbox primer but the moment my skin got used to it, I starting to have breakout. And I almost have that with all of them.

So I wanted to give the After Shave Balm a change and been using it for a few weeks now to let my skin get used too it.

I used the one without alcohol.

My first impression was AMAZING! I loved it from the first day.

And now few weeks later, still addicted. Has become a part of my beauty routine.

The results are amazing:

  • It feels nice and fresh
  • It’s easy and so smooth to apply
  • Every foundation looks so beautiful and natural (and trust me, I like to put a lot on my face, even that looks natural and even)
  • Makeup lasts the whole day. Looks amazing and the end of the day. Even after those longgg days.
  • Improvement of my face. My face is more even and clean. It feels like my face has a protection layer for the makeup

How I put it on and have a new beauty routine:

  • I start with cleaning my face
  • Apply the Nivea After Shave Balm (you only need a little drop because it’s easy to apply all over the face)
  • *I know, it smell like men. But don’t worry the man smell will go away, (I kind of love the manly smell)*
  • Let it completely dry (doesn’t even take a minute)
  • Spray Mac Cosmetics Fix Spray over it (you don’t need this is your using the primer but I like the dewy effect off it)
  • And then put on everything you want! GO WILD!
