Garnier Miracle Wake Up Cream | Review

Happy Monday!

Today I fancied doing a skin care post, and what could be better than reviewing my current day cream! I’ve been using this for what feels like ages now, so I figured it must be worth a few words!

I originally got this on a whim! I had no intentions of actually buying a cream, until I saw it was on offer with another product I already used. It was something like a buy two products and get a bottle free deal. I really only bought it for the bottle!


I will be the first person to admit I suck at keeping at a decent skin care routine. I don’t do any form of skincare daily, more like every other day (at best!).

Due to this, I need products that last ages, and have long lasting effects. Yes, this is mainly laziness, but knowing that products do good over time is always a huge bonus.

So this products main aim is to make your skin look brighter and improve skin tone.


To do this, it does have a slight tint in it, but not enough to drastically change your skin tone. Just enough to even out where it needs.

This also helps a tonne with dry spots. I have insanely dry skin on my cheeks, and this fixes it almost instantly. It dries in quickly as well, so doesn’t waste time in the morning if you also have a makeup routine to follow.

My only negative on this is, if you itch / scratch your face, it comes off as a white cream consistency. This really does annoy me, as it feels really weird when it comes off. This isn’t a setting problem, as it can happen as much as 8 hours after application. Maybe I’m using too much, but it really does annoy me!

Have you tried this product?

Or do you use a different day cream?

Let me know in the comments!
