Yeah so I used it because Nikki recommended it...but it does work!

Then my boyfriend stole it for me and started using it and he loves it! So it's become a constant repurchase in this house hold. Others seem to mind the 'masculine' fragrance, but I don't mind it and it fades after about 5 minutes anyway.

Works great on my oily skin too!

I know that this is a men’s product,  but I learned on YouTube that It can be used as a primer for makeup.  I  ordered some and tried it and it worked so I told my cousin to try it, and she did and it seemed to work for her too.  I think it’s great and i would recommend for you to try it its a lot cheaper than some makeup primers.

I started using this products after watching Nikkie Tutorials talk about how great it was as a primer. Now let me say that just because this works for me does but mean it will for you, everybody's skin is different but it is worth giving a shot as this thing is AMAZING. (Its also pretty cheap) It makes my makeup last all day,and keeps oils at bay. I have an oily combo skin and it works great. I also use it after derma-planing to prevent redness and rash. It does smell "manly" but I actually quite like it.

So I bought this because I saw beauty bloggers raving about it as a primer under makeup. I was skeptical but curious and WOW were they right! This stuff is great! It smells good (like a good smelling man lol), doesn’t bother my skin at all and really makes a difference in how long my makeup lasts! I wouldn’t say it blurs pores or perfects skin in any way really, but it does increase the longevity of your makeup for sure!

As a woman, I bought this after seeing tons of Insta and YouTube beauty gurus using it as a moisturizer or primer before applying makeup.
It moiturizes well. The scent is a little strong. Smells good, but a lil strong. Its a light, non greasy formula. Dries fast with no residue.
This is my review of it overall, however, I do not know how it preforms as an actual aftershave. Probably does well.

i use this as a primer for makeup because NikkiTutorials said it was a good product. Turns out it is because after you rub it into your skin, it gets a little bit tacky, which is great for foundation. It smells like cologne as well, which i absolutely love, and yeah. overall i love this and ill probably buy it again

Not much of a scent with this.  I have used this stuff since I began shaving many many years ago.  I have used this along with the nivea shaving stuff however I have now switched over to wetshaving with safety razors.  This is remains my go to for post shave.  It helps calm and soothe my skin.  The non alcohol doesnt dry my face out.

I get ingrown hairs all the time while shaving whether it be on my legs or under my arms. Here lately I have been applying this to every body part I shave and I see fast results! It is for men so it does have a manly smell but only for a while. I can’t smell it after it has been applied. It is a must have if you are a sensitive shaver!

Post shave balm aka one of the best primers I’ve ever used ! When nikkietutorials said it was the best I had to see for myself. I went to a local Walgreens and bought it. Lets just say this primer lasts WAYYYYY longer than any other primer (quantity wise) ! The only reason why I don’t absolutely love this product to give it a five star is because I feel like it worked everywhere else on my face except my t-zone which is very oily depending on the primer. But touching up with some blotting sheets still kept my foundation on so that’s a plus side to this ! Anyways for my normal to dry friends , this would work on way better !

Does the fragrance it contains last long? I want to try it out but I heard that the smell stays throughout the day. I don't want to smell like a guy.

When I use this as a primer, although it gives me a flawless finish, when I first apply it and put my foundation over it, my foundation starts balling up and peeling off my face throughout the day. Does this happen to anyone else? It happens the most with my Mac foundation.
