Every time I look at the black and gold packaging of the Napoleon Perdis Skin Renewal Collection I just know that each of the products present a luxurious experience.
Cue singing: “I’m soooo fancy!”
The Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot BBB Cream Beauty-Boosting Balm with SPF 30 is designed to give the appearance of a HD foundation combined with anti-aging moisture and broad-spectrum sunscreen protection to perfect the skin. Free of parabens, mineral oil and fragrance, this is a perfect alternative for those who suffer from skin sensitivity.
The shade I have is light/medium, which perfectly blends into the skin. I found that the finish and wear of the BBB cream was quite nice on the skin, adding a natural warmth and glow to my complexion.
The packaging is that of a squeezable tube with a screw cap lid, which is quick and easy to extract product from. The formulation of the cream is very much of the feel of a thick moisturiser, with the coverage and blend ability of a light-medium coverage buildable foundation. At first, I was quite worried about the finish as it does appear very dewy on immediate application. But once the product has been blended and allowed to set for a minute or two, it dries to a smooth finish with a definite natural glow. I would recommend using a primer underneath and good blending brush (I use the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush) to aid the evenness of product during application.
As for wear time I’d say that this wouldn’t be a base product you would grab if you needed your makeup to last all day. It has a very lovely light, natural, glowing finish that suits casual wear up to 6 hours I’d say. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t yet found the right BB cream for you, and are looking for the perfect balance of coverage and moisture in the one product.
The Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot BBB Cream Beauty-Boosting Balm SPF 30 can be purchased separately or as part of the Napoleon Perdis Skin Renewal Collection.
