The first shaving cream with 5% real milk protein! Milk-enriched lather forms a protective moisture barrier that conditions and softens as it glides the razor for a close shave without nicks. New SkinMilk shaving milk has arrived and it delivers the ultimate shaving experience by providing a close, comfortable, indulgent shave in a creamy, luxurious and smooth base of milk.
SkinMilk is an affordable brand that offers a wide variety of milk-enriched products from bath to body to face. I recently tested our their new product, Shaving Milk, which really helps to moisturize and provide a great lather prior to shaving.
I am happy to report I suffered no nicks or bumps after shaving, and I swear, it keeps the re-growth down just a tad, at least enough to get away with one more day between shaves. It has a light fragrant scent of vanilla, which is pleasant and not at all overwhelming. The product retails for $5.49 online, and I do believe that’s worthy of being called a bargain buy!
Find Shaving Milk and other SkinMilk products at Wal-Mart and www.drugstore.com.

With October comes Halloween, on the 31st, and because Temptalia is all about creativity and makeup, we want to see what our readers can come up with to celebrate the holiday through the powers of beauty and artistry!
Introducing… Temptalia’s Halloween Mask Challenge!
Show off your talent by creating a face mask that you might see as part of a Halloween contest — this means the content of your mask is quite open-ended, as there are an endless number of costumes one might wear for the spooky night. The mask must be made using makeup (props are welcome), and it must appear on a person, whether it’s you or a model.
Winner receives a $60 prize (half in MAC, half in other high-end beauty products). There will be one grand prize winner, but there will also be a smaller prize that goes to the person who wins the “readers’ choice” award!
Contest ends October 31st, 2007.
Keep reading to view the details, contest rules, and see some examples of past MAC Cosmetics Halloween face charts for inspiration.

Napoleon Perdis’ Dream Cream from the Auto Pilot Skin Perfection Collection is a heavenly rich and luxurious face cream that feels amazing against the skin and leaves you so well moisturized throughout the day. I tested this for over a week, using it once morning and once before bed, and my goodness, my skin has felt so soft and silken. It feels a bit heavy initially, but it’s a lightweight cream in the end because it disappears quickly and doesn’t leave you looking or feeling oily. As with any product, I love that a little bit goes a long way. You really only need to squeeze a dab on your finger to fully cover your face.
The only downside to this product is the price ($95.00), which would make it one of the pricier items to put into my normal routine. I think one should be able to get at least a month or two’s worth of face moisturizing out of this tube. Part of the price-tag of this product includes essential age-fighters, hydration-boosters, and properties that somehow allow light to shine better on your face. I know my skin has been loving me for using this cream regularly, though I haven’t used it long enough (nor do I have enough signs of aging) to determine its anti-aging effectiveness.
If you love this product, you may want to check out the rest of the Auto Pilot family (Primer, Re-touch, Pore Minimizer and Mattifier, Eye Spy, and Lip Service). Dream Cream can be found at www.napoleonperdis.com or www.sephora.com.
