Le Petronille Skincare Challenge


Weeks 5/6 of my Petronille Skincare Challenge –  I realize I am a little behind on the updates, it’s been very hectic around this neck of the woods between vacation time with the family, seeing friends AND networking time has ran out fast.  Week 5 I spent it in Miami, FL with a little humid air and normal heat conditions for this time of the year.  With less than 50% humidity and winds, I don’t sweat as much and the Petronille day cream worked perfectly under my concealer and sometimes dash of foundation. There were days were I went almost makeup free and with similar results, there was not a sight of oily t-zone (hurray).  At night time I still managed to put some of the nightcream with the elixir and experienced some dryness (even though I doubled up on the amount I was using).  I think this is quite normal for me as I tend to dry up when in a/c rooms such as the one in our apartment in FL.

Week 6 was spent in an old familiar place for me, New York city.  The climate in New York was unseasonably cool and definitely very mild which seemed to agree with my skin.  New York is a walking city and I dove right into the routine of subways, taxis, crowded restaurants and shopping centers. While in New York I didn’t spend a ton of time outside and my skin held up well both daytime and nighttime, there was no need for ac and both the creams and elixirs did their magic.  I met up with friends and everyone had nothing but compliments particularly on my skin (double hurray!).  Petronille agreed with me in all fronts and I highly recommend it! Thank you Luxola for introducing me to this fabulous brand.

Le Pétronille Skincare Challenge


Week Three of my Petronille Challenge – This week is a new setting! On Monday, I travelled to San Francisco, California (USA) and the weather conditions are much different than Singapore, it is dry heat this time of the year, think Mediterranean-like temperatures. After a gruelling seventeen hour flight, I’ve been catching up on my time zone (16hrs total to be exact), sleep and keeping hydrated as much as possible. Combination skin like mine loves dry weather, I get less oily in the daytime but definitely more dry especially at night. The first two days were rough, as I was super tired and this showed in my eye area.

At any rate, I’ve been applying more of the day and night cream to compensate with the dry air, protect skin against the sun and to continue to nourish my skin while I adjust. The Elixir Anti-Age serum works exceptionally well in the daytime too!

Week Two of my Petronille Challenge – Loving the night cream with Elixir Antioxydant for overnight repair, skin wakes up moist, this is something new for me. In the daytime I am using small amounts of the pink bottle cream in my forehead as I am prone to dryness here and on the cheeks but have to apply sparingly to avoid getting too oily (we live in a super humid country and the last few weeks have been scorching!).

My skin tends to be combination/oily in the T-zone, but prone to dryness, irritation and the monthly female breakout, so far there haven’t been any reactions at all, in fact very little if any breakouts. **I also had a glycolic peel which cleared my skin – a miracle! The writing is on the wall, using good products and getting some form of facial helps.
