I have never been one to use any type of “beauty” or “skin care” product in the past. At least not for more than a day or two. As I am getting older I realize the mistake I have made with not have any type of routine to care for my skin.
Living in Hawaii you usually don’t have to worry about dry skin due to the humidity, I always had oily skin. What I have now found is with age you start to feel the effects of not using moisturizer. Even in the most humid of climates you still can get dry skin areas. I now have combination skin. Probably more dry areas than oily.

Since I’ve been noticing the unfavorable effects of washing my face with soap and using no other products I was more than overjoyed when I found out I would be receiving the Hyaluronic Acid Serum from Day by Day Beauty.

My product arrived in record time….. coming across the ocean, this is not always the case. The day my Hyaluronic Acid Serum showed up I also had an email waiting in my inbox letting me know some extra tidbits and how to use it the serum. Perfect timing.
When I opened my packaging the glass bottle was wrapped in bubble wrap along with the pump dispenser. Right away I unwrapped everything and placed the pump inside. I was worried how 1 oz would cover my neck and face for a month.
I washed my face with the usual soap I use. Patted my face dry and quickly pumped some of the Hyaluronic Acid Serum in my hand. A little less than a nickel size went into my palm. I’m thinking hmmmmm…… I’m gonna be needing a lot more.
The serum is clear and almost odorless. I noted a hint of the Hamamelis Virginiana (fancy name for witch hazel) which dissipated immediately once applied. I have always like the smell of witch hazel; this could be the nurse in me 🙂
To my surprise I had more than enough serum to cover my neck and face completely and liberally. The Hyaluronic Acid Serum from Day by Day Beauty is slightly thick, kind of like a gel (in a good way, not at all heavy thick) and goes on incredibly smooth and light. Don’t let the lightness fool you, after about an hour I could literally feel my skin tightening and the moisture was locked in.
Since using any type of skin care product usually needs more than one use or day to give a proper review I used the Hyaluronic Acid Serum for 3 full weeks. Day by Day Beauty states for full benefits and optimal use to wash your face, use a toner and to follow with a moisturizer and to apply after using Day by Day Beauty’s Vitamin C Serum.
After 3 weeks of use I have noted my skin feels much more hydrated, even after 8 hours I still can feel the moisture that’s been added to my face and neck. Before using the Hyaluronic Acid Serum I was noticing dryness around my mouth, some areas around my cheeks and on my neck. This has gone away completely without leaving me feeling greasy or oily. I love the new feeling I have found with this great serum. It leaves me with that soft, moist skin feeling I had when I was younger.
Pamela from Day by Day stated “Hyaluronic Acid Serum is most known for its moisture retaining properties…but it also adjusts its absorption rate to reflect its environment. Depending on your climate and humidity levels outside, the Hyaluronic Acid Serum will adjust its absorption rate to deliver just enough moisture from the outside air to your skin.” I have found this to be accurate and completely my experience.
I went to a fundraiser early one morning it was an unusually dry and very hot day. After 6 hours in the sun on my way home I noticed my face still felt moist and soft. This is usually not the case. I usually feel dried out and shriveled up. I even notice upon waking in the morning the serum is still working and didn’t rub off or just absorb with no benefits.
Using with sunscreen did not pose a problem either. It is light and absorbs so well it didn’t make my sunscreen feel thicker or heavier which was a concern of mine. The Hyaluronic Acid Serum really seems to adjust and work well with both humid and dry settings. Hawaii is thought to be a very humid place, but there are definite areas that are drying on the skin. It was great to have a product that adjusted so well.
Day by Day Beauty’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum even seemed to give my skin an all over even tone look. My face and neck has a softer, smoother more even look. I loved the way areas around my mouth have more of a plumper look and feel. I have some spots on my face that have seemed to have lightened a little as well. The lightning has been minimal since I have only been using the serum for 3 weeks. I fully expect to see less of these spots with continued use. This is very exciting.
I really loved the fact I could honestly feel some of the anti aging effects. The renewal of the moisture to my face is great, but the tightening I could feel around my cheek area and in my neck was rejuvenating. It was wonderful to feel it actually working.
I did not notice any definite reduction in the fine lines I have or that pesky line that annoys me on my forehead. This was completely to be expected. Day by Day Beauty does not claim overnight wrinkle reduction, that would have been a red flag for me if they had. It takes time and consistency to experience all the benefits. Since I have truly found this to be my new favorite beauty product and will continue to use; I will update you all on how my little lines are doing 🙂
I love the moisture and the tightening of my skin with the Hyaluronic Acid Serum, but the factor that has been best for me is the gentleness of it. I have experienced 100% NO reaction from the Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Day by Day Beauty. I was delighted and surprised. Even when I was sweating or if I did accidentally touch my face then eyes there was no irritation or itching at all.
I have steered away from using products on my skin for several reasons; laziness, didn’t realize the importance (thought I was going to stay 20 forever) and my eye sensitivity. On the rare occasions that I did try some type of product the main reason I stopped using them was even though I completely would avoid the eye area somehow the product would go near or in my eye and cause me days of redness, itching and/or irritation. It was great not to have the problem with this beauty product.
I have found NO negatives with this serum. I had a little bit of trouble reading the instructions on the bottle since its silver writing on a blue background. This could be a sign I need to get my eyes checked too. Regardless, Day by Day Beauty clears this up very well since they provide so much information on their website, and here and here in their instructional videos.
I applied Day by Day Beauty’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum twice daily. Once in the morning and at night before bed. I did not use any other products except for my good old faithful soap to wash my face prior to applying the serum. I am sure if I had used a toner, moisturizer and the Vitamin C Serum that is recommended for full benefits my results would have been even more amplified.
