Review Crew®: Garnier Miracle Cream

Our panel put the Sleeping Cream and Wake Up Cream to the test

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / May 25 2017

A busy life not only leaves you feeling tired and weary, but it can also have effects on your skin. 

Fatigued skin can look dull, lacklustre and can be prone to developing lines and wrinkles, which is why it’s important to ensure skin is looked after, hydrated, and energised. 

Beauty Crew gathered a panel of women between the ages of 30 and 55 to try Garnier’s fatigue-fighting moisturisers: Miracle Sleeping Cream and Miracle Wake Up Cream. Each woman tried the cream suited to them and their biggest concerns, and here’s what they had to say about each. 

The Review Crew® verdict for Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream:

The testers who trialled the Sleeping Cream were impressed that the cream felt lightweight and absorbed quickly into their skin – not a quality they expected from a face mask and night cream. 

Many mentioned that the formula left their skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated, with some mentioning they started to notice a reduction in fine lines. Those who hadn’t yet noticed those results said they were happy to keep using the cream to see if they’d notice the effects in a few weeks. 

Several testers with sensitive skin found that the product was gentle, and didn’t cause any irritations or flare-ups.

Over the next 10 days I felt like my skin was softer to the touch and eased the appearance of the fine lines around my eyes and mouth

The cream itself looks like a cross between a gel and a cream and it looks as if it would go on quite thickly but it applies so wonderfully and is lovely and light on the skin with the most heavenly scent that I found to be divine.”

The Review Crew® verdict for Garnier Miracle Wake Up Cream:

The panellists who received the Wake Up Cream to trial found the formula to be quite luxurious, and that a little went a long way to moisturise skin. 

Many mentioned they liked the subtle scent, and the fact that the cream absorbed quickly into their skin. Overall, testers felt their skin was softer and firmer, and looked fresher, though some mentioned they hadn’t yet noticed many anti-ageing results, but were happy to keep testing. A few testers did say they noticed the increased moisturisation effects after a few days of use. 

As the Wake Up Cream is day cream, some testers did mention the product would have been perfect with the inclusion of sun protection.


I noticed my face was starting to look and feel fresher after a few days of using this product and was suitable for my fine lines that are starting to appear.

I definitely noticed a difference in my complexion after use. It appeared to make my skin firmer and reduce the darkness around my eyes.”
