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.

What? Napoleon Perdis’ Boudoir Palette. This is one of the most compact holiday palettes I’ve seen, but it’s utterly adorable with its tortoise packaging. You open up the compact to reveal three eyshadows on the first tier, with two lip glosses on the bottom tier. You’ll also find two mini-brushes for on-the-go application. On the bottom of the eyeshadow tier, there is a mirror, as well.
For who? For every girl who adores darling compacts. For your Mom, who’ll swoon over the vintage print, and the simplicity of the colors.
Why and how much? I really like the shades they give you; they seem relatively unique as a combination (gold, grape, and silver. The gold-yellow color is so gorgeous and makes a great wash or a highlight. The smokey purple is awesome for that subtle smoked look, great for lining or pumping any daytime look into evening. I love that the silver kind of surprises you in the combination, but it’s a great cooler hue for the holiday season. Plus, you’ll love the price — $25.00! As far as Napoleon Perdis products go, this is definitely a bargain (and not to worry, you don’t lose out on quality!).
Available at www.napoleonperdis.com, www.sephora.com, and select retailers this holiday season.
