I’m turning 30 this year.
My skin is dry.
I look exhausted from lack of sleep due to a newborn.
Cue Garnier’s Ultra-Lift® Miracle Sleeping Cream™ Anti-Age + Anti-Fatigue Night Cream. Personally, I love beauty products but don’t claim to be a beauty guru by any means, lol! And I’ll be completely honest that when I was asked to try out a night cream, I was nervous since my skin tends to break out easily with a new product. But… since my skin has decided to go desert dry on me the past few weeks since giving birth to Millie, I figured I didn’t have much to lose.
I purchased the Garnier’s Ultra-Lift® Miracle Sleeping Cream online for $16.99 and then waited for it to arrive. One of the claims of this moisturizer is that it fights the signs of fatigue…so yes, this was another selling point since I’m somehow surviving on a massive lack of sleep. Thank you motherhood! 😉
First Impressions: Upon getting it out of the shipping box, I looked over Garnier’s packaging for the product. I’m a nerd and can appreciate colorful packaging that informative at the same time. Directions, ingredients, claims… I’m all over them! The actual Miracle Sleeping Cream is in a glass bottle, is a creamy color and has a silky texture. Also the scent was of lavender and floral notes, and nothing that I would consider overpowering.
Trying it Out: The directions were simple: apply a pearl size amount at night on a freshly cleaned face. It also instructed me to apply it with my fingers in an upward motion until absorbed. Now I don’t know much about skincare so the whole ‘upward’ motion was new to me, lol. But I just went with it…
Garnier’s Ultra-Lift® Miracle Sleeping Cream felt nice after applying. It absorbed quickly and didn’t feel sticky (something I can’t stand when it comes to night creams). The next morning my skin felt smooth and moisturized and not at all greasy which some moisturizers tend to leave my skin.
Overall Thoughts: I’ve currently been using the product for two weeks now and have been pretty impressed with the quality for such an affordable price. I’ve bought a lot of products in the past that were double or triple the price and I didn’t see anywhere near the same results as Garnier’s Ultra-Lift® Miracle Sleeping Cream. So my wallet likes that. 😉 Also, my skin has remained clear with absolutely no breakouts and I actually feel like my skin does look more awake in the morning even if I didn’t get a lot of sleep due to a non-sleepy/hungry baby. There is a matching eye cream (Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream: Anti-Age + Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream) which I plan on trying since I had such a positive experience with the sleeping cream.
