DECIEM Hylamide Skincare Review

Hello Lovelies

It's no secret that I am rather a large skincare geek, so I was very excited when I was contacted by a lovely lady from the company DECIEM, I have seen DECIEM mentioned on some blogs I read and on social media so when I was asked if I would like to review some skincare products, I was thrilled. My skin has been terrible for months now so the opportunity to try some new products was very welcome, I was sent some products from the brands Hylamide and The Ordinary and have been trying them out over the few weeks and today I am going to let you know my thoughts. 

Because I was sent quite a lot of products, I am going to split this post into two review posts, this one will be a review of the Hylamide products and I will follow up on Friday with my review of The Ordinary products, otherwise this will be the longest blog post in the history of mankind. 

My Skin

My skin is dry, now when I say dry, I don't mean it is a bit dry in certain areas of my face, no, my skin is extremely dry all over my face, I don't think people really understand just how dry it is until they feel it for themselves, it feels like sandpaper and I have some horrible flaky patches too. My skin is also dehydrated, not a good combination really is it? Over the years I have tried countless products, some work for a little while but because of my medical conditions and the medication I take, my skin is a nightmare and has become the bane of my life, as dramatic as that sounds it is true, it really gets me down. 

I have been using the DECIEM products for just over a month now, I have to use skincare for a while before I review it, because my skin can decide one day it might become allergic to something that has worked for a fortnight, but the testing period is over, and here are my thoughts. 


DECIEM, The Abnormal Beauty Company was founded by Brandon Truaxe in 2013, DECIEM started with one product in one market, they now own and operate more than 10 brands in the beauty world and are the people behind Niod, Hylamide, The Ordinary, AB Crew, Grow Gorgeous and many more brands. DECIEM'S approach to skincare is to produce effective skincare products at reasonable prices so us as the consumer gets the best product without paying a hefty price tag. 


The two Hylamide products I received are the Sub Q Anti Age (£30.00) and the Sub Q Eyes (£27.00)

Using The Products & My Thoughts

I have been using both products after cleansing and toning, I apply the Sub Q Eyes first and apply it under my eyes and around them and then I use the Sub Q Anti Age then the other products I use in my skin care routine. 

The packaging of both products is the same, both are glass bottles with a pipette style applicator, the Sub Q Anti Age has purple labelling and the Sub Q Eyes has green. The Sub Q Eye is a liquid formula which surprised me, I assumed it would be thicker, but it isn't a problem, I find that taking what is on the sides of the pipette and using that an easy method for me, I take a small amount on my ring finger and apply it under my eye and then around my eye taking it across my socket bone and the skin underneath. It feels lovely and cooling and very refreshing. 

I use just under a pipette full of the Sub Q Anti Age for my whole face and neck, it applies well and feels nice on the skin and sinks in well. I like that I am not waiting around for it to take ages to dry. 

After just 2 days of me using the products I noticed a difference in my skin, it looked and felt much better, more hydrated and didn't look anywhere near as dry. I was really impressed and continued to use the products. I have been using the products for a good few weeks now and I am so pleased with the way my skin looks and I have even had compliments on it too, I have been doing some Instagram live threads recently and apart from on one occasion I haven't been wearing makeup and everytime someone has commented on my skin and told me I have lovely skin, this means the world to me because it really was far from lovely. 

I have also noticed my eyes look better, the dehydration lines under my eyes look better and the fine lines around my eyes look better too, I don't have a mass of eye wrinkles but I do think what I have looks less obvious. The skin on my eye lids doesn't feel as saggy or papery either and I do think it looks better too, I asked my daughters if they thought the skin had improved and they both agreed it had. All the dehydration lines on my face and around my eyes I have look better and are much less obvious and I am really pleased with the way my skin looks and feels now.  

I wasn't very well over the weekend after going out for a couple of hours and spent most of Sunday dozing on and off, I completely forgot (read that, couldn't be bothered) with my skin care routine so didn't bother at all on Sunday or Monday morning and just used a 3 in 1 micellar type product I have for sick days, and although my skin felt a little dry by Monday afternoon it was no where near what it would have been before my new skincare routine and I didn't have any flaky skin anywhere at all which for me is unheard of and shows that the products are doing their job and not just when they have been applied.

I am seriously impressed with the Hylamide products and cannot recommend them highly enough, if you haven't tried them yet, please check them out, for me to receive compliments on my skin is one thing but for it not to feel like the Sahara desert after going 36 hours without my skincare routine is a first for me and I am absolutely bowled over. 

The Sub Q Anti Age is available on the DECIEM website here and the Sub Q Eyes here and both products are also available at Boots.

Please check back on Friday when I will have my review of The Ordinary products and I will also be sharing how I worked those into my routine with the Hylamide products too. 

Thank you for reading, much love as always
