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