Ask around, and you’ll probably hear I’m an optimist. I like to see the best in people, things and situations for as long as I can put up with it. That being said, I’m very cynical towards the so-called ‘miracle’ products. I simply don’t believe miracles exist, nor do miracle products perform miraculously. When Garnier had an offer on their Miracle Skin Cream, I just had to try the product and see what all the buzz was about.
It is dubbed as the Origins Vitazing of the drugstore brands and I can see why. It’s a one-tint-fits-all kinda product, and these never tend to work out for me as one tint never fits all. Beauty brands need to stop watching The Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants. Gah, I loved that movie though.
Anyways, I can see why the blogging community fell in love with this. It is a very sheer, tinted moisturiser that smoothes the skin, blurs some widened pores and makes your skin look a bit better. It also contains a bunch of anti-ageing ingredients (i.e., LHA, Pro-Retinol, Vitamin B3, B5 and C, Peptides and Ginger). I can’t say whether the product is beneficial for your skin, since I’ve only used it a few times, as I didn’t get on with the product. Why? Because 1) my skin isn’t flawless enough to pull this off on its own 2) I’m not into heavily scented products, and 3) that one-tint-fits-all never fits me —it’s way too orangey on me, and frankly orange ain’t my colour.
