First, it was after-shave, now people are using lube as a makeup primer. Yep, you read that right. TikTok is at it again with ~*trends*~, and this time, the spotlight is on the Durex Play Lubricant. Because of its grippy and hydrating formula, people are using it on their faces to act as a base for their makeup. Some even mix it with their foundation because it helps the formula glide smoothly and creates a flawless finish.
While we do use lube on other parts of our bodies, experts say that lube has ingredients that may clog the pores or trigger allergies. The TikTok-famous lube, Durex Play Lubricant, is water-based—probs a reason people chose this variant.
I remember in one Zoom call with friends, they showed me a high-end, top-of-the-line lube that has hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient added to skincare products because of its hydrating properties. Nevertheless, let's just stick to legit makeup primers just to be sure, okay? Lube can be used for other ~*fun*~ stuff!
