SENSITIVE | Nivea 2-1 Moisturizing Primer


After hearing all about the Nivea For Men After Shave Balm trend from awhile ago with mixed reviews I didn't end up ever trying it but I received the offer to try the new Nivea 2-in-1 Moisturizing Primer I figured I'd give it a go!

The primer is enriched with natural almond oil and Calendula Extract and it's also non greasy and leaves your face feeling silky smooth. I always love a more hydrating moisturizer during the summer months because I always feel like my skin really needs it and so far this seems to do the trick. It's also $10.95 CAD at Walmart which is a great price for a combined product.

You need very little product because it spreads easily which is super nice and I actually use probably around a quarter of both my moisturizer and primer together so that's definitely a plus for this product. It does say that it instantly absorbs but I find it takes a minute which is totally fine  and you don't want to rub it in too much because it can get a bit pilly but as soon as it does sink in it's totally fine. The jar itself has a nice sleek look and although it doesn't specify whether it is for dry to sensitive skin or normal to mixed it does have a pink rim around it that matches the colour on the outside of the packaging, so that's the only way to tell that I can see anyways.

Although the product is for dry to sensitive skin it seems the scent of it did irritate my skin a little bit but it does go away after a little while. The scent is a bit off putting for me because it reminds me of baby products or face cream meant for a older woman if that makes sense, like something my grandma used to use. It just doesn't make much sense to have a scent in a product meant for sensitive skin. I also do wish it was in a pump instead of a jar just because I don't like contaminating my products and it would help with not using too much of it since you'd only need a small pump or two for your entire face.

Overall I think it's a good product especially if you want to cut down on time in the morning or if you're someone who doesn't usually wear makeup but likes the appearance and feel of primer. It make my makeup last all day and felt wonderful. I'll definitely be using the entire jar and decide if I'll repurchase after that, I'll probably try the normal to mixed skin after just to see once I am done this jar.

If you did get in on the Nivea For Men After Shave trend then I definitely recommend you try this because so far my experience with this product has been great and is actually meant for under makeup.
