The holidays seem to start earlier every year. It’s no longer a surprise to see bulbs twinkling on department store Christmas trees in August.
So by the time the festivities actually start, I’m exhausted from shopping all the early, door buster, biggest sales ever. Not to mention, overindulging in the treats and drinks of the season. The sales take a toll on my wallet. The parties and treats affect my face and my behind. While I don’t have any suggestions on battling short funds, big butt syndrome, I have found a ‘miracle’ cream that may make the season brighter.
I’d been eyeballing Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream, an anti-age and anti-fatigue night cream, on the facial product aisle of my local Target for months now. I’m of the age where anything that promises overnight results is tempting. Finally, after catching a glimpse of my skin looking especially dull, parched and tired, I was desperate enough to cough up $18 and give it a try.
Garnier vows the cream will give you more hydrated and brighter skin after just one night. I woke up, the day after using it, with baby soft, moisturized skin. It didn’t look necessarily brighter, but the fine lines on my face were less noticeable. On the downside, the fragrance is off-putting, however it vanishes quickly and won’t deter me from continuing to use it.
So if your face is suffering from a case of too much holiday, Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream is the perfect year-round pick me up. It’s available at drug and discount stores.
