Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream
I do like the idea of these sleeping masks, but can’t help wonder if fundamentally that’s what a night cream is. However, one improvement is that the new wave seems to form a film over the skin overnight to stop moisture evaporating. The Origins, Dr Jart and Clinique versions all seem to do this. Today I’m having a gander at Garnier’s offering. There’s also an eye cream in the range.
This bouncy texture trend (cushion foundations are also appearing finally) seems to be filtering over from Korea. It just makes beauty more… fun really doesn’t it? You can’t knock that.
The texture is jelly-like JUST like the recently launched The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask, and since we’ve got that too why don’t we dig that out quickly for a show and tell.
In fact it’s so bouncy that you can do fun things like make the spoon stand up (that’s right you get a spoon) and make cool stabbing patterns in the mask.
No one can accuse L’Oreal of not rolling out a new formula across the board. See how my product obsession is helping you save money?!
Anyway, back to Garnier. So Garnier tell me that the next morning my skin will look “de-tired”. De-tired is not a word Garnier, but apparently they mean hydrated, rested and all that jazz. It boasts an anti-aging complex with 7 ingredients (LHA, Adenosine, Albizia, Hyaluronic Acid, Ruscus extract, jojoba oil since you ask), and a bit of lavender since who doesn’t love lavender at night-time? The texture application is smooth and cooling, plus it’s not sticky so it sticks to your sheets and hair (like some of them do).
After three days we have no break-outs (result) and softly soothed skin. However I do think The Body Shop one performs better, with my skin feeling peachy the next morning. The difference is harder to trace on the Garnier version, with simple moisturisation the apparent result.
Have you tried any of the new explosion of sleeping masks? Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream is £13.99. BUY IT AT BOOTS.
