If you’ve ever worn a pair of glasses, whether it be for the purpose of being able to see or blocking out some sunlight, you’ve likely had to shove them back up on your nose. Even if you get them adjusted regularly, you’re going to have them sliding down from the optimal position almost constantly. Not many of us are going to use straps or wear goggles to make sure they’re always in place, so something simpler might be in order.
Of course, what can you put on your face that isn’t going to have some chemicals in it or look ridiculous? Nerdwax is the answer! This may look like a tube of chapstick, but it’s a combination of beeswax, coconut oil, and other natural ingredients that have been cooked up into a “face glue”. It won’t actually adhere your glasses to your face, but it will keep them in place for an extended period of time.
All you need do is apply some to your glasses where it would touch your skin, and poof, instant stick. The ingredients this is made of are actually good for your skin, so your won’t have to worry about breaking out. However, the oil and wax will leave a little residue, so have a cleaning cloth handy. If you don’t have a super oily face or sweat a lot, then one application should do it for the day, but lots of activity might warrant putting it on every two hours. Paying $15 will get you one tube of this stuff, which should last about 6-8 months depending on how much you use it.
