Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream

Garnier
50ml / £13.99



This pot of sleeping wondrous stuff (apparently), arrived courtesy of My Little Box , having already headed down the sleeping miracle route with an overnight mask from another brand, it felt as though my skincare world was all about bedtime (not a bad thing in my book).

Pout Thoughts

On first perusal it's texture resembled blancmange (not good for me and my weird texture aversion), it's memory foam ability to reform after I stuck several of my digits in it was mildly amusing and rather impressive. 

Having found the previous sleeping wonder product watery this was a pleasing texture. There is something about evenings and the joy of a thick cream. It felt substantial and smelled rather nice too, sweet but not sickly. 

The only catch I had using this was having to stop using my much loved application of night oil - but these things must be done to get a true idea of the product and it's results. 

After cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating with a facial mist I used the miracle cream and that was all, it had a spongy texture and left a smooth film over my face. 
For several weeks there was nothing to see really, just the same old face looking back, I was also aware that certain areas where I suffer dehydration were looking more obvious. 
I then added a Hyaluronic serum before application & gradually I did notice my face looked brighter on awakening, as I hadn't noticed much until adding this serum I am of the opinion that this 'miracle' was not for me and though a nice enough cream, which hydrated the face in parts it wasn't enough for my skin needs.
