  • Moderate moisturizing. It has a moisturizing rating of 5.7 out of 10.

How moisturizing is it?

Quite moisturizing: Garnier Miracle Anti-Fatigue Sleeping Cream has a moisturizing rating of 5.7 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? Significantly more humectant. It has a very high humectancy of 8.4 out of 10, primarily due to the substantial concentration of Glycerin (est. ≈4.0%) and Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane (est. ≈2.5%), and a moderate occlusivity of 3.0 out of 10, solely because of the significant content of Dimethicone (est. ≈6.0%).

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the moisturizing rating calculation.

Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, Garnier Miracle Anti-Fatigue Sleeping Cream has a zero anti-wrinkle rating.

It contains Adenosine and Caffeine, two ingredients marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of these ingredients provide insufficient evidence of efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, these ingredients do not generate the anti-wrinkle rating.

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the anti-wrinkle rating calculation.
