Before we sat down for dinner I ran to check the face situation. It was not good my friends! My t-zone was oil city. Like I probably could have cooked our dinner on my face. My foundation had completely melted off my cheek bones. Even Chris noticed that this was not my usual makeup application.
So safe to say this "primer" did not work for me. Does that mean it won't work for you, no. My body chemistry is probably very different. I would say that if you have oily skin this may not be your BFF. I do like that it contains witch hazel, and no alcohol, so it is not drying to your skin. Which for me meant that I got quite shiny as the day went on. I really did want this to work because hello, inexpensive. But the results were not like I had seen or read. I think I will be sticking to my usual primer.
I also love the smashbox hydrating primer, and if you are looking for a great affordable primer I would go with this one by e.l.f .
Have you tried the Nivea as a primer? Lemme know!
