Nivea Shave Balm

So I am FINALLY back among the living with an internet connection!  Thanks AT&T for finally fixing that! I’m sure the data charges on my phone are going to be through the roof this month, oh well. Anyway, I haven’t posted a blog in forever because of my funky internet. I could have probably posted one off my phone, but that seems like a major pain in the BUTT!

Anyway, let’s get to today’s post! Sooo I’ve been on the hunt for a new foundation primer. I’ve been wearing the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer for MONTHS, maybe even a year. However, it’s started not really working for me.  I don’t know if it’s because my newest tube maybe has a different formula in it or even because I’ve switched foundations.  BUT, the foundation is just not staying like it should! This stuff is also $36 for 1oz. So when it stopped working, I was NOT a happy girl! If you want to check it out this is the link for it at Ulta.


So I’ve been looking for a new primer and all over social media and YouTube I have been hearing about this Nivea Post Shave Balm.  I know you are probably rolling your eyes, because I was too! I remember thinking, NO WAY! That stuff is not going to work! I don’t want to smell like a man!

But, I was strolling the aisles at Target, like all of us females do.  (I swear Target has something in the air that makes you want to just stroll around for a hour!) Anyway, during my stroll, I somehow ended up on the shaving aisle.  I saw this Nivea Post Shave Balm and I also noticed that it is $5.59 for 3.3oz.  I put that baby boy in my cart ASAP!

So the next morning when I was doing my makeup I decided to try it.


(Here’s my bottle, just in case you don’t really believe me.)

I did my eyes first, like I always do, and then I applied this.  It does smell like a man, I won’t lie, but it is a good smelling man smell. You want to rub it in, until it gets extremely tacky. The #2 ingredient in this is glyerian and glyerian is the super glue of the make up world. So once this stuff is good and sticky, apply your foundation! AND IT WORKS! My foundation has been staying like a pro! I touch my face 10,000 times a day.  I ruin my makeup more than probably anyone else.  My hands are always on my face and my eyes… It’s a horrible habit and I don’t even notice I’ve done it, until I look in a mirror.

I bought this in January and I’ve been wearing it for over 2 weeks, go buy it!  Go spend the less than $6 and thank me, because you will!

Now that my internet is up and going, I plan to have another blog up in the next few days.  I’m trying to stick to my 2 blog posts a week deal. Anyway, I hope you all are having a great presidents day! If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them down below or email me at!
