Okay, I know this is for men, but I had to jump on the NikkieTutorial bandwagon. First off, this stuff smells great to me, but the smell of a man has always been one of my favorite scents, so it didn't bother me. It goes away anyways. You only need a little, and it's pretty runny, so be careful pouring it out. You rub it in, and it gets tacky. When I apply my concealer or foundation, it looks absolutely flawless. It gives such great pigmentation to my drugstore concealer that I use less. I work out for one and a half hours every day, and I wear concealer and a highlighter for my face products. Both stay on ALL day. There's no creasing and my highlighter doesn't fade. This stuff is amazing!
I was so pumped for this product, but oh how disappointing it was when i finally got it. When I first put it on, I noticed a strong smell, but I don't care much for scents so this didn't bother me. HOWEVER, this product broke me out so bad. I'm still trying to get rid of the bumps on my face! In a nutshell 100% do not recommend!

All I'll say is they better never change the formula for this!

I'm skin is super picky when it comes to primers, but my skin loves this stuff! I will never use anything else again.

I bought this after the reviews. Tied it with all my foundations and blends easy. If you use too much it will pill.

I attended a makeup seminar and the MUA who presented stated this is his favorite makeup primer. I purchased it the same day and I've been using it about two weeks now. I've worn it after moisturizer under my liquid foundation, but I like it even better when I mix a little with my foundation before applying instead. My makeup looks flawless and I hardly get greasy throughout the day. This is a game changer.

i don't know who said this was a good primer for makeup but my makeup literally looked so bad at the end of the day. like...... Not for long term makeup wearing. my skin is also oily so maybe that's why. Not a fan
CJ from Menifee
All I can say is wow!! This is the best primer ever I have used Smashbox forever. But this works just as good. My makeup is flawless and my skin is so smooth. I was skeptical at first. So I tried it and this will now be the only primer for me.the only thing is it sells out fast so I had to drive a ways to find it. But ladies it works you won't be disappointed and for the price compared to high end primers you can't beat it!!

I use this as primer when I run out. I wouldn't say that it's better than or just as good as my too faced primer but it's better than no primer. I get really itchy after shaving my legs so I apply this to soothe the area and it also helps prevent ingrown hairs. It smells wonderful.

I have sensitive, dry/combo skin and this has been working really well for me. It's a good sized container, kind of runny product that makes a little go a long way. I use it under my make up as a primer, I love it!
Sisi from FL
I have a hard time finding a primer that actually does what it's supposed to do. I heard all the rave about this after shave balm. I thought it was so weird but I gave it a try and it really does work sooooo good as a primer. glad I purchased
Liv from MI
I use this as a primer too and I love it! It does have a manly smell to it (really good though), but you don't smell like a man throughout the day
Amber from Missouri
I've been using this as a makeup primer, and I love itttt.
Kelsie from Utah
I started using this as a makeup primer after it blew up on youtube. I kept seeing it left and right being used as a primer, and once I began using it I completely understood! I have oily skin and this acts as a tacky primer that doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. A little goes a long was with this and a bottle will last you a very long time.

This product works best with oily skin in my opinion. I've been using this as a primer for 6 months now and I cannot put it down. I love wearing this under the Maybelline Better Skin foundation and it looks FLAWLESS. My nose gets really oily and patchy when I try other combinations of primers and foundations, but with the two combos I mentioned, my nose looked great!
Cretic from Fort Smith, Arkansas
I was very pleased with this product after hearing great things about it on YouTube as a makeup primer.
TC from SD,CA
I use this before applying foundation and it works nice. It has a pretty strong smell but it isn't overwhelming. It gets good & tacky and for the price no complaints.
Genevieve from Florida
I avoid silicone based products because they cause breakouts for me. I have been taking several prescription acne medications for the past few months and my skin looks 75% better. So I am experimenting to see I could use anything with silicones again and the answer is no. Big under the skins cysts came up after using this as a primer for 3 days. It makes my bare minerals last pretty late into the day, so this is sad. If you are acne prone, try avoiding silicones as this may help you too.

I use a healthy amount of this every morning after I wash my face as a primer, and it works miracles. It makes your foundation go on smoothly and prevents that horrible sticky make-up feeling after a long day. As it moisturises as well within days my spot prone skin cleared!! I have oily skin with one or two dry patches and it completely fixes both issues. Also used on my legs after shaving and oh my were they smooth ;)

To be fair I have oily breakout prone skin anyway, but this broke me out after 2 days of use. I tried it over my Acne control moisturizer and it still broke me out so for me it's a no go. Too bad cause the reviews are great!
SP from Cleveland, Ohio
I did not use this product for the after shave. I used it for a makeup primer for my face. It works wonders. It absorbs my makeup right away and makes it looks as if I am not even wearing foundation even though I am. It does smell like a strong "man smell", considering it is a men's aftershave, but after your apply the makeup the smell decreases. it is very lightweight and it makes your makeup last. I prefer this over the balm porefessional and too faced hangover primers. Plus, it's extremely cheap!

I used this as a primer under my fdtn & as a moisturizer (I'm never without makeup except at night), but now I'm hooked on high end skincare my moisturizer ATM is caudalie but if you need a drugstore moisturizer or primer this is the iz! It smells great & doesn't cause breakouts. Keeps me pretty matte, another winner from Nivea!
Nat@Den from Aurora, CO
Bought it for my husband and he really loves it. It doesn't irritate his sensitive skin and I love how it smells.
KaylaK from St. George, Utah
The day after I used this my acne was almost gone! This gives the skin such a moisturizer, healthy feel and is a fantastic primer. And what a great price!
Make up expect from Colorado
Really fast absorbing and lightly moisturizing, but without being oily or greasy on the skin. Makes your makeup last a little longer, but nothing crazy. considering the prize it's great
Amanda from Providence, RI
My oiliness did not shine through at all! However, I did see that it defined a couple of pimples on my cheek, nothing too horrible and I would rather have those than look like I just came out of a McDonald's frier! But if anything breaks you out, then I would not get it. The smell is bad at first but disappears about thirty seconds after use.
