DIW? Nivea

DIW? Nivea Sensitiv After Shave Balm as a primer - kao prajmer

February 09, 2016J's beauty spot



Okej, odmah ću reći na početku: "Da, neobično je.", slažem se. Ovaj "trend" i interesovanje za ovim proizvodom (u ove svrhe), napravila je Nikki tutorials kada je objavila video sa svojim favoritima. Ubrzo su usledila oduševljenja i ostali YT beauty gurua, zajedno sa Desi Perkins koju obožavam, tako da sam morala da isprobam. Kako moja jača polovina već koristi ovaj balzam, nisam imala potrebe da kupujem čitavo pakovanje, pa sam malo ukrala od njega za testiranje. Da li zaista radi?


Pakovanje je tipično za Nivea proizvode. Dakle, minimalno, prošarano njima prepoznatljivom plavom bojom. Dolazi u čvrstoj, kartonskoj kutiji unutar koje se nalazi staklena bočica sa proizvodom u količini od 100 ml.

* Okay, I'm going to say it right away: "Yes, it's weird.", I agree, This "trend" and interest about this product (for this purpose), started Nikki tutorials when she made a video with her favourites. Shortly, other youtubers tried it, and loved. One of them is Desi Perkins who I simply love, so I had to try this product. At the time, my boyfriend used this balm, so I stole some from him and deciced to test it. Does it work?

Package is tipical for Nivea poducts. It has minimalistic designe, with, their signature, blue colour, It has strong cardbord box with a glass bottle inside, and it contains 100 ml of product.


Poklopac se lepo otvara/zatvara, gotovo da nema šanse da se proizvod slučajno prospe. Ono što mu je glavna zamerka, a verujem i velikom broju muške populacije jeste otvor bočice koji je previše širok i veoma lako se može preterati sa količinom proizvoda, a potrebno vam je veoma malo za celo lice.

* The lid is opening/closing really nice, and there is no chance for spilling the product. Biggest flaw, that I noticed, is the opening which is very big and it takes real practice to dose enough product for your face, which is a size of a pea.


Balzam je označen sa Sensitive, s toga je namenjen osetljivoj i koži sklonoj iritacijama, pa samim tim ne sadrži alkohol. Glavni razlog zbog koga se ovaj "prajmer" svideo Nikki tutorials, kako je navela, jeste taj što sadrži glicerin, čija je uloga da veže proizvode, stopi ih i, najvažnije, drži ih na mestu i produži njihovo trajanje. Kao što možete videti, glicerin se kao sastojak nalazi na visokom, drugom mestu.

* The balm is marked as Sensitive, so it's for sensitive skin and skin prone to iritation, and that's why it doesn't have alcohol in ingredients. Main reason that made Nikki like this "primer", as she said, is that it contains glyceryn, which is good for connecting products, melt them together and, most importantly, keep them in place and make them last longer. As you can see, glycerin is on very high, second place, on ingredients list.

Moj utisak

Proizvod je jako redak, prijatnog "muškog" mirisa, nije previše jak, oseća se samo prilikom nanošenja, ali se ne zadržava dugo na koži. Lepo klizi, lepo se razmazuje, ne stvara neprijatan masan osećaj, već je jako osvežavajuć. Takođe, ima blag efekat hlađenja. Lepo se upija, relativno brzo, za neka 2-3 minuta.

Očekivala sam da će ostaviti lepljiv osećaj na koži baš zbog visokog prisustva glicerina, ali naprotiv. Lepo je zagladio kožu i bila je nežna na dodir. E, sada... Ako imate baš proširene pore i očekujete da će ih popuniti, neće. Kao što sam rekla, zagladi kožu lepo, pripremi je za puder, ali baš proširene pore koje i ja imam (područje oko nosa i obraza), neće popuniti. Meni tu samo pomažu prajmeri na bazi silikona. Što se tiče produžavanja trajanja makeup proizvoda, tu se lepo pokazao. Puder je lepo izgledao, trajao duže nego inače i odložio je prosijavanje T zone za nekih sat vremena.

Zaključak: Ovu neobičnu metodu bih preporučila osobama koje imaju kožu koja je normalna ka mešovitoj ukoliko nemaju jako izražene pore. Osobama sa suvom kožom bih savetovala da ukoliko žele da koriste ovaj proizvod kao prajmer, pre toga nanesu hidratantnu kremu (naročito u ovom periodu). Meni, koja imam masnu kožu, a koja nema problem sa isušivanjem i dehidratacijom, ovo nije bilo neophodno. 
Za kraj, mogu da kažem da me je ovaj proizvod prijatno iznenadio. Koristiću ga s vemena na vreme u dnevnoj varijanti kada mi nije poteban baš porculanski ten bez pora kao za posebne prilike.

Ocena: 3/5.

Cena: oko 500 dinara, u zavisnosti od prodajnog mesta.

* My impression

The balm is really runny, it has nice manly smell, not too intense, you can feel it while aplying, it doesn't stay on skin for too long.  It glides nicely, without greasy feeling, it's very refreshing. Also, it has gentle cooling effect. It absorbs nicely, relatively fast, from 2-3 minutes.

From this product I expected to have sticky feeling, because of glycerin, but it didn't. It made skin really smooth. But... If you have large pores and you're expecting that this product is going to neutralize them, it won't. As I said, it smoothness the skin, make nice base for foundation, but large pores, which I have too (around the nose), won't be filled. Only products that help me with this issue are silicon based primers. As far as making foundation last longer, it does work. Product made foundation look nice, lasted longer than usually and made T-zone shiny for one hour less.

Conclusion: I would recomend this unusual method to persons with normal to combinationed skin if they don't have really big problem with pores. For ones with dry skin I would suggest to use moisturizer before using this product. For my, oily skin which isn't prone to dehydratation, this wasn't nessesery.
Lastly, I can say that I was plesently suprised with this product. I will use it sometimes, for "to go make up", when I don't need that perfect skin look, as I do for special occasions.

Rating: 3/5.

Price: around 6 usd. or 5 euros.

    1. Pa da, za cenu od oko 500 dinara, mozda je pametnije da kupis prajmer ukoliko nisi sigurna da ce ti ova metoda odgovarati. :)
