Garnier Miracle Skin Cream

I have read lots of mixed reviews about this new Garnier Miracle Skin Cream however after seeing the beautiful finish on friends I decided to give it a whirl. It claims to instantly transform your skin leaving a glowing even finish whilst the seven anti-ageing ingredients (LHA, Peptides, Ginger, Pro-retinol and Vitamins C, B3 & B5) work on reducing the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles, as well as improving firmness and smoothness. This miracle cream claims to do so many things that I was convinced it could not live up to its name, however I have been pleasantly surprised at how much I love it! 

The consistency is like a moisturiser and comes out of the tube white but the colour adaptive microcapsules change colour on contact with the skin and adjust to suit your complexion and leaves a fresh, healthy, illuminating finish - which always seems an impossible task first thing in the morning! This is very lightweight and so does not offer much coverage. I would definitely liken it to the Origins VitaZing which I absolutely adore but with the Garnier you get much more value for money. 

I have been wearing this on its own most days as I love the natural finish it gives. It actually lasts surprisingly well and keeps my skin looking fresh and hydrated for the majority of the day.  However, it also acts as a great glowing base for under foundation if you wish to have more coverage. It doesn't keep your makeup in place for longer or eradicate the appearance of pores but it does even out your skin tone and give it some radiance without interfering with the base you apply over the top. 

Another great thing about this product is that it also includes an SPF of 20 which I think is impressive and much needed on those no-makeup days. Although if I am planning on being in the sun all day I will choose a higher factor SPF like La Roche-Posay, read my reviews here

This product does have a very powerful scent to it and although it does not react with my sensitive skin my ultra delicate eyes do immediately water if I put the product too close or rub my eyes before it has set. The scent is not unlikeable and does fade once the product has been absorbed into your skin, however it does make me very wary of the sister Garnier Miracle Eye Product. 

I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a light weight base in these warmer summer months. You can buy it in Boots for £12.99. 

What is your favourite summer base?
