Disadvantages: Price but readthe review
I am really a bit of brand committed person, and do not tend to experiment with my does, aftershaves and perfumes. In fact whenever I go to my regular buying spots they scarcely ask what brand they will provide as for those toiletries and generally fish out the stuff the moment I ask for my does, after shaves, blades... The only Nivea product I use is the Nivea for men, the five in one for men.
I don't switch my brands for the simple reason I belive that what suits you better why change it. One pertinent reason for this is that I am a but allergic and I have got a very sensitive skin. I do have use a disinfictant. I am prone to barber's itch and specially after shaving I suffer from burning sensation, redness and irritation - persisting for quite some time, even after using aftershaves and then it recedes on its own gradually, but I have asked lot of my friends about the continuation of irritation even after applying the aftershave. But their experience is, it recedes immediately after applying the after shaves. What I thought is that it couldn't be got ridden off and I accepted it as one of things which you can help but accept. And I also have severe problem of acmes which is sometimes very painful and of course embarrassing because it leaves out scars. Naturally I have to use something to prevent acmes also.
In winter I have had problems with exploded or cracked lips, a lip gel is enough for that. But an additional component, definitely it is!.
So just check out the things I need for protection against burning after a shave, disinfection, moisturizing, acme and its scars protection, exploded lips in winter.
Since I am a person who hurries things a little bit the ease of what I use is very important also.
After office hoarse and during holidays, we, some selected friends and office colleagues usually gather around a spot and bide our time discussing politics, sports, the latest sexy starlets, for that matter everything under the earth. Generally there are guys who get hooked to the TV when time permit. A participants of our leisure joint is one of those TV addicts and he mentioned a commercial of Nivea for men after shave balm. Since one of my committed brand is Nivea, I thought to give this product a try. I must say I have not selected a wrong product in choosing Nivea for men aftershave balm
After using it the first day I realized that the burning sensation and irritations after shaving receded noticeably quickly, I was very satisfied. Allantoin, the anti-irritant works perfectly. In fact it gives you such cool sensation mainly because of the presence of Bisabolol and Calendula. The Vitamin E content in this aftershave balm enriches and nourishes your skin, the fun of it is rub it and there it vanishes immediately.
But what amazed and surprised me is the fact that acmes became less frequent and in few days time I had the acme scars vanishing. I was amazed, because I had not been using the scar removing and anti-acme stuff, as they were unavailable for certain period. Naturally the logical calculation is that the Nivea for men aftershave balm did the trick. I deviated from my habit and decided to experiment a bit and used it with some apprehension on my exploded lips, dear, dear it worked wonderfully. But the commercial never claimed this. I don't know whether it's a stray incident, those who read this review, would you please check this property ?
Now at face value £7 for 100ml does seem quite expensive. I have calculated (now I can do away with three products), its is cheap. I don't know whether the success of the product that I ENJOYED is just an individual and stray incident, but I have doubts. My gut feeling is that it will work with every body.
But I must say that one of the severe draw back of it is the packaging, the bottle is made of glass, the ease of use is restricted. I have every doubt that some day I might hear a c-l-u-n-k and land up spending £14, does it then remain cheap? So a food for thought it must be for the R&D guys over there at Nivea lab. Is there any technical reason ? Or is purely commercial ? I don't know !
So to sum it up it works far better compared to its moisturizing, cooling and anti-irritant effects with the one I was using and the neutral fragrance, well (if you don't mind me using the term), it is sexy.
SOME FEATURES WORTH MENTIONING.
a. Better moisturizing effect, leaves you fresh.
b. Excellent neutral fragrance (which partly means it does have a smell but it does not mask other fragrances)
c. Helps removing acmes scars and prevents acme to some extent (be cause acme is also associated with the nature of skin and food habits).
d. Mends cracked or exploded lips during winter.
e. Gives you freshness and it gives you a soothing effect.
I must say a very impressive product.
