A Day by Day Beauty Vitamin C Serum Giveaway!

by Hallie @ Moxie Wife on June 16, 2014

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. Congratulations, Nina, Megan, and Laura P. Check your inbox!

Day by Day
I don’t do a lot of product reviews and giveaways around here. I’m always so tempted when the offers come in but I usually pass them up because this season of life is crazy. Those of you who are familiar with my mail obsession know how painful this is for me. In the interest of not ruining my own life, though, I have to be honest with myself and admit that by the time products arrives on my doorstep all sorts of unexpected happy chaos might very well have erupted (leaving my blogging time at approximately 0.0001 minutes).

When beautiful Pamela emailed me and asked whether I’d like to sample her Day by Day Beauty Vitamin C serum, though, I couldn’t resist.

This past year has done quite a number on my skin. Charlie-no-sleep succeeded in simplifying my beauty routine to a degree that would make beauticians faint. We’re talking brushing my teeth (quickly), splashing my face with water, removing my contacts, and passing out. On a good day.

No special face wash, no moisturizer, and definitely no tonics or serums or toners.

Now that he’s doing just a bit better on the sleeping front (praise the merciful Lord above) I feel my desire to care for my physical self coming back to life a bit. So, when Pamela contacted me I jumped at the opportunity because I read a while back (from an article published in a periodical I trust but can’t find now — sorry!) that while there are few skin treatments that are actually effective and live up to their claims, vitamin c serums are the exception. They praised them unreservedly.

I actually tried a different Vitamin C serum a while back but put it aside pretty quickly because it was so sticky. I was told that this is pretty standard for these serums so I never sought out another brand. I love positive results but not so much that I’m willing to turn my face into a fly catcher every night. I read in the Amazon reviews that the Day by Day brand has found a way around this problem which made me even more tempted to try it.

While I was looking over the reviews I noticed that there are 250 of them and almost all were positive! And so, despite my determination to cut back on product reviews, I begged sweet Pamela to send me a bottle. Generous gal that she is, she had it on my doorstep in days.

Oh my word, girls. I love this stuff. It has absolutely earned all the positive reviews it has received. The kids and I have been spending a lot of time at the pool and beach this summer which isn’t typically terribly kind to my skin no matter how much sunscreen I use. This year, though, I’ve been using my new beloved serum faithfully and my skin looks better than ever!

I could totally work for QVC, couldn’t I?

Seriously, though (and with all sincerity), this stuff is amazing. In addition to Vitamin C, it contains Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Aloe, and Jojoba Oil. Good stuff, all of it.

Anyway, I’ll stop rambling now and tell you the happiest part of all. Pamela is giving away a bottle of her Day by Day Beauty Vitamin C Serum to three winners! Just do your Rafflecopter thing below! Easy peasy. And if you just can’t wait, the cost of the serum is currently on sale for $18.50 (reduced from $89.99!!!). I highly recommend snagging a bottle (or five).

Good luck and take care, cutie pies!

sounds awesome! I need all the help I can get ;-)

CMerie June 16, 2014 at 12:33 pm

My biggest challenge with my skin is that it is very dry, but prone to breakouts, and clogged visible pores. I’m currently trying the oil cleanse method with no results. Nothing I’ve ever tried helps even a little. I’m close to giving up in despair!

For the first time in my life forehead breakouts! Plus those crow’s feet that I noticed the other day :) Thanks, Hallie!

Lately my face has been breaking out but at the same time is very dry. I would love to win this and see if this is a solution for me!

Laura the Ringmistress June 16, 2014 at 1:04 pm

Sounds awesome. My makeup case got flooded a few months back so I’m starting over completely. Color is great (I’m on a quest to find a red lipstick that doesn’t look pink on my lips) but skin care trumps everything else.

Lauren June 16, 2014 at 1:14 pm

I hear you on the “routine” front – if I have time/energy to wash my face and moisturize, it’s a good day!

Break outs or dry skin…I can’t win!

Stephanie June 16, 2014 at 2:11 pm

I have an oily face that could use some help!

Stephanie K June 16, 2014 at 2:24 pm

This would be great! I find myself also lacking time to have an elaborate skincare regimen.

Suzanne June 16, 2014 at 6:02 pm

I have horrible break outs, I thought it would slow down as I got older!

Emily M June 16, 2014 at 6:14 pm

Visible pores, along with patches of dry skin. And if you’re splashing water on your face most nights, you’re doing better than I am!

Now that I’m 60 (when did THAT happen??) I need a new routine b’cuz things change. Maybe I will “C” the answer!

Virginia June 16, 2014 at 8:58 pm

I am intrigued. I hate face wash regimes, but I also have heard nothing but positives about using vitamin C serums. Hooray!!

Jenny June 16, 2014 at 9:39 pm

Yes, please. I’ve aged a decade in the last 18 months.

Ok, this might be TMI, but I can’t stop picking at every imperfection! Horrible!

Wow – I could soooo use this! My Mama-care routine leaves everything to be desired these days!

Time and money! This looks too good to be true. :)

I’m almost 39 and while I’ve always been good about cleansing and moisturizing, until recently, I didn’t do myself any favors in the sun care/prevention area. I recently started reading about the importance of serums but the ones I’ve tried have been pretty sticky and I haven’t seen any real results. Would love to try something new that other women have used, liked and seen an improvement with! Thanks!

Vanessa June 17, 2014 at 12:24 am

I’d love to try this. My biggest skin woe is dryness, which then leads to picking and scars – ugh!

Mary Grace June 17, 2014 at 8:27 am

Sun damage!

Irena June 17, 2014 at 9:18 am

Oh this looks wonderful! Would love to get a bottle!

Rebecca Moates June 17, 2014 at 9:49 am

I have the same problem, run around with the kids, crazy tired, fall on bed after brushing teeth, wake, go, repeat! My skin needs a pick-me-up! I need a pick-me-up :-) Hehe

Jamie June 17, 2014 at 10:00 am

Love vitamin C in my face products. Never used a serum, but I think I might start!

Super dry skin with eczema in the winter. I’ve even put straight vitamin e on my face with just a small result, but I’ve never tried vit c. Maybe it’s the magic bullet!

Laura June 17, 2014 at 10:56 am

In the last two years I’ve begun having brown patches on my skin that won’t fade despite photofacials and chemical peels. If this stuff helps skin discoloration, I need it!

Megan June 17, 2014 at 11:47 am

Somehow, I am able to have breakouts and dry skin at the same time! How does this happen?

Jessie June 17, 2014 at 12:41 pm

Oh my goodness, I think I need. Same boat with a non-sleeping gorgeous baby boy child; same boat with zero face products, zero makeup wearing, cursory teeth brushing. Hoping for some luck on this one!

Amy June 17, 2014 at 3:17 pm

My biggest skin care challenge? Ha! I have no desire to spend tons of time cleansing and toning and, well whatever else might be involved in a skin-care regimen. I have tried a few times to have a skin care routine, involving more than just a boxed facial wipe to get the makeup off, but it is never something I can stick with. When I’m ready for bed, I need to go to bed. But this sounds like it could be quick!!! Yay!

Laura June 17, 2014 at 8:15 pm

Sounds great! Dry skin is my prob.

Tania June 17, 2014 at 9:18 pm

Sensitive skin with tendency to dryness. It gets red and flaky sometimes.

Sheila June 18, 2014 at 1:30 am

I have large pores, sensitive skin, and both dry and oily skin. I would really love to win this magical stuff! Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

Sheila Thabet June 18, 2014 at 1:36 am

I have eczema, large pores, and both dry and oily skin. ugh. I would greatly appreciate winning one of these magical serums. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

Danielle June 18, 2014 at 8:07 am

My skin had changed SO much since having my son! Oilier, bigger pores , more wrinkles… I need something to help!!

I have weird skin. If I wash it every day, even with a gentle cleanser, it dries out and I break out. But it also gets oily with humidity. Silly skin. Also, I’m kind of lazy. So it’s a bad combination that feeds on itself. Maybe if I won some happy product here, I’d actually use it! :D

Combination skin is my biggest skin problem

Jamaica June 18, 2014 at 2:10 pm

I really have no skin care regimen…its a bit embarrassing, actually. But, really, I don’t even know where to start! Maybe this would be just the thing…I might order some even if I don’t win!

Pamela June 18, 2014 at 2:47 pm


I know what you mean about fussy skin! On our Day by Day Beauty blog, I have a few articles that could give you some ideas/options. It can be a challenge especially if it is hormonal.

Cindy June 18, 2014 at 3:36 pm

Age spots.

Melissa D June 18, 2014 at 11:28 pm

oh my goodness my dark circles under my eyes.

Katheryn June 19, 2014 at 2:40 am

I still have occasional outbreaks of acne in the T-zone, even though I am 47 years old.

Stephanie June 19, 2014 at 2:39 pm

My skin care challenge is that it’s getting more dry as I get older, plus with a baby and tired-looking skin under my eyes…not sure how to solve all that!

Lauren June 20, 2014 at 8:00 pm

I have extremely oily skin, acne scarring, and really have to keep on top of exfoliating to keep my pores from clogging. I am 43, so now starting to notice fine lines and loss of elasticity – yikes!

Dianna June 21, 2014 at 7:12 pm

Wrinkles!! This stuff looks great.
