Wake Up With Boing Boing Skin With Garnier’s Miracle Sleeping Cream

Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream

Sleeping masks are all the rage now and it’s no wonder why. Why just use a mask that you’ll need to leave on for 30 minutes and then wash off when you can use one that you don’t have to wash off and sleep with? I know, it’s my laziness talking here. I can’t be arsed to have to wait and wash. 😛

For me, sleeping masks are akin to night creams. You can either use them on top of your night cream for extra hydration, but they’re usually sufficient to be used in lieu of night creams. Garnier recently launched their version of a sleeping mask called the Miracle Sleeping Cream and I had the opportunity to give one a go.

I’ve been using it as my night cream for the past few weeks and y’know, it’s actually not bad. Not bad at all.

Not getting your beauty sleep? Miracle Sleeping Cream’s innovative formula combines the power of a mask with the lightness of a cream to fight signs of fatigue. It contains 7 anti-aging actives including essential lavender oil to help improve the quality of sleep and combat the signs of aging. In just 1 week, skin appears refreshed, revitalised, smoother and feels firmer.

Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream Ingredients

If you’ve used The Body Shop’s Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask, you’ll find this mask very familiar. The texture is very similar to the one from The Body Shop. It feels like memory foam; when you stick your finger/spatula in and give it a mix, a few minutes later it will go back to its pristine, untouched nature.

Unlike the one from The Body Shop, this one doesn’t feel sticky on the skin. I also much prefer the scent of this Sleeping Cream to The Body Shop’s Sleeping Mask. This one smells slightly fruity but isn’t overwhelming in fragrance. It’s lightweight on the skin, absorbs quickly and leaves the skin feeling moisturised and hydrated all night.

Does it do any more than typical night creams do? No, not really. I don’t see a difference. To me, this is a decent moisturiser that suits my combination skin and I have no complaints about it. It’s not exactly a wow-you-have-to-buy-this-omg-so-good moisturiser, but it really isn’t bad at all. I find the scent quite relaxing, which is nice for just-before-bed use.

If The Body Shop’s Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is slightly out of your price range, then do give this one by Garnier a go. Personally, I prefer this to the one from The Body Shop for its non-sticky texture and pretty scent. I really wouldn’t say that it made my skin looked like it’s gotten enough beauty sleep. It’s not that miraculous. 😛

Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream

Garnier’s Miracle Sleeping Cream retails at AU$19.95 for 50ml and is available at leading pharmacies and supermarkets nationwide.

What I like about it: Pleasant fruity scent, interesting memory-foam-like texture, lightweight, oil-free, not sticky, moisturises and hydrates my skin well throughout the night.

What I do not like about it: It doesn’t come with a spatula so if you’re icky about sticking your fingers into a jar of cream, this might not be for you.

Have you tried this sleeping cream by Garnier or sleeping masks by any other brands? Do you like them?

    I like the sound of this one! Especially since you say it’s not as sticky as the TBS one. Only thing is I”m not sure about the scent bit. Will go check if we’ll get this 😀

      Oh yes, it’s definitely not as sticky as the one from TBS. I’m never good at describing scents but according to Emily Noel from The Beauty Broadcast, she said that this smells like a mimosa. I’ve never had mimosas before so I don’t know but if you have, well, there you go! 😛

    This looks interesting. I should give it a go especially the price tag for this product is quite affordable. We all want to look in our skin even wearing a plus sized swimwear!

      It’s definitely cheaper than most sleeping masks I’ve tried. It’s already out in stores so do check it out!

    I haven’t seen this out yet but I will be keeping an eye out for it. The body shop one had my attention and I was thinking of purchasing but I will have to give this one a go. Great post Hun.

      Personally, I prefer this one but in terms of interesting textures, I still say the one from The Body Shop wins. 😛

    I just saw a commercial for this product while the spouse and I were eating dinner 🙂 I thought .. hmm, interesting .. and yes, I’m probably going to buy it .. if I see this product in the store. I like the idea of a non sticky moisturizer sleep “mask” .. it sounds like an interesting product to try at least.

      Hahaha the things that catch your eye while you’re eating, eh? 😛 If you see a tester of this, have a play with it and see if you like it. I’m terrible at describing scents but according to Emily Noel from The Beauty Broadcast, she said that this smells like a mimosa. 🙂

    The Garnier Night mask is the same thing – boingy texture in the jar – at a lower price (especially when on offer in Coles/Priceline lol) than Body Shop – they seem to be all the rage. I got the Garnier one after reading an article about *these are the things that really work to make you look younger* (ahem), and whilst its ok, I don’t think it does anything to make me look younger over night 🙁

    I’ll stick to coconut oil methinks – the cheapest yet most effective thing I’ve found thus far (even for my slightly at times greasy skin) – nature knows! 🙂

    1. Tine

      Oh wow coconut oil on your skin? It works? I won’t be able to do it; it’ll be too oily for me. 🙁

      PS: All those “make you look younger overnight” claims are B.S. 😛

        a) L’Oreal night masque one, not Garnier – getting confused with names
        b) Re: Coconut oil – Nope its not too oily – promise promise promise!! It sinks in, makes your skins SO soft and it smells divine. Just only use a tiny bit. I have terribly acne, and it actually helps, rather than makes it worse (like a lot of rich moisturizers can). Literally a tiny half a pea size bit, melted in your hands and then rubbed all over, it goes straight in – if you have lots of oily shine you’ve used too much, so blot it off with a tissue. Go on – come over to the dark side (ie ‘Doesn’t cost $300 and still works’ 😛 )

        1. Tine

          Okay see the thing is, I can’t stand the smell of coconut oil. Erm, that’s not reeeeaally going to work, is it? Ooops. 😛
