The Review: Garnier Miracle Skin Cream

In my last favorites, I mentioned how I would review the Garnier Miracle Skin Cream (£12.99) in my next post, so here I am. At your service *bows*.

The plastic tube contains 50ml of product. One shade 'suits all skin types'. However, it makes my fair skin look a tad orange if I use too much. The cream is white with small beads that pop when you rub it into your skin (a dupe for the Estée Lauder Daywear Sheer Tint?). It also has SPF20.

I can't speak for its anti-ageing properties, but above that it claims to give 'a smoother, flawless, radiant, healthy, rested complexion'. Does it? When the beads pop, it gives you a tint, which evens your skin and in turn gives a healthy effect. The finish is somewhere between matte and dewy.

You can use it as a tinted moisturizer, but I tend to moisturize before as well. Then I take a pea-size onto my fingers, rub them together until the beads pop and apply it like I would moisturizer. Afterwards I go over it with a blending brush to make sure everything is blended well.

Verdict: yay or nay?
A definite yay. I see myself using this all through Spring and Summer (I think it would, however, be too dark during the colder months). It's easy to apply and feels like skin, perfect for every-day use. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone who likes a light-weight coverage.

Have you tried the Garnier Miracle Skin Cream? Did you like it?
