My First Time using the Nivea 2-in-1 moisturizing primer

Happy first week of spring! What a fabulous time when nature sheds the dreary layers of winter and things seem refreshed, renewed and in desperate need of a spring cleaning! I love taking the time to clear out the clutter-not only around the house, but in my makeup stash as well! While it sometimes breaks my heart to throw away expired products, I get giddy when I'm able to discover new things to add to my collection. I was lucky enough to try the new Nivea 2-in-1 moisturizing primer and micellar water from Chick Advisor- thanks very much guys :) and I'm happy to say that this was really what my dry skin needed! I got to try the formula for normal skin, but you can also find a dry to sensitive skin formula which has almond oil and calendula extract. NIIICE!!!

I liked that the moisturizing primer easily absorbed into my skin and the gel-like formula was cool to the touch. The fragrance was a bit strong for my taste, but I was very happy with the results. My skin felt instantly moisturized without feeling sticky or clogged. I used this moisturizing primer on its own as well as under makeup. I didn't notice that my makeup lasted any longer than when I don't use a primer, but I can honestly say that my skin felt nourished AFTER I took my makeup off. Sometimes my skin feels stripped or parched once I take my makeup off, but using the primer and following up with the micellar water when the night was done turned out to be really beneficial! This micellar water even got some of that stubborn lash glue (which is why I hate wearing false lashes..but anyways!) so I guess you could say that I'm a fan of these products! You can find the 2-in-1 moisturizing primer at your local beauty store for about $11. That's a fantastic value for a product that actually leaves your skin feeling and looking great!

Are you in the spring cleaning mood? What are some items that you're happy to add to your makeup and skincare arsenal? I'd love to hear from you!!

My First Time using Melixir face oil

This year, my skin has been on its best behaviour. I'm not entirely sure if it's because I've been paying more attention to wha...
