My p.m. Skincare Routine for GLOW (age 39) | Favorite Japanese Products + Anti Wrinkle Pillow Review
hi it’s molly and welcome back to my channel welcome here if it’s your first time this video is all about my pm evening skincare routine i want to go over the products i’m using and loving products that i have used for years and years and years some new products i’m trying and the order in which i apply everything very quickly before we get started you can find me on instagram at girlgate glamorous on pinterest at mollygardener1 and there’s always more on the blog at girl gay glamorous if you find this video helpful could you please give it a thumbs up alright let’s get started i’m going to start today’s video with body products because i feel like i never share these and while it’s very important to deal with this skin there’s a lot of other skin in the shower i use this is the bioderma atoderm ultra nourishing anti-irritation shower oil and this is as you can see a giant these are the size of my head they’re so big this is 33.
8 ounces and this entire bottle retails for only 20. i love a shower oil because i have really dry skin and this has really helped transform my skin so that it’s not flaky or tight after a shower it also dissolves sunscreen so if you like me have to wear sunscreen to even leave the house to drive in your car you will appreciate that because after the grimiest hottest summer days i hop in the shower and just rinse off and you will feel so good i take two 60 second showers every single day it is one of those things that amazes absolutely everyone that knows me because i am a fairly high maintenance person and i take the fastest showers i generally speaking we’ll only use the ahava at night i don’t usually put this on in the morning unless my skin is feeling really dry but this is the ahava dead sea water mineral body lotion this is the triple size this one retails for dollars and i initially had sticker shock and then i realized that if i could buy 24 ounces of anything for my face for 63 dollars i would lose my brain i have this much left at this point and i have been using this container for i want to say three years i actually found the triple size so i will link that below this is the only body lotion i will use i need to purchase the travel size because my fiance and i love to go to las vegas i think las vegas is one of those cities that is even more fun as you get older i love going out for dinner i love going to the spa and i love going out to an evening show but all of that like pool time and spa time and the combined with the desert leaves me with super super super dry skin and the reason i’m sharing all of this is because every time we come back from a weekend in vegas my skin feels like it’s going to fall off my body which is why i need to purchase a travel size but i will put this on and within 24 hours my skin is back to feeling just so soft and yeah i just i use this every single night and my fiance did say he’s like your skin is always soft which i think is a nice compliment i’ve actually also been using this after i wash my hands during this time for a zillionth time a day i put a little bit on the back of my hand and i sandwich my hands like this and then i make sure that my fingernails get a little bit of that lotion that way my palms aren’t getting lotiony unless i need it if i do need it then i will go like you know traditional but this has kept my hands so soft during this the year of the hand wash so this is the only body lotion i will use it is amazing these are my body products i have not changed either of these for years after i discovered these it was it for me let’s move on to my face pm routine now i whether or not i wear makeup i always do a double cleanse and i have been using this is the dhc deep cleansing oil this is the bigger bottle of dhc oil it’s 6.
7 ounces and it retails for 28 this is what the bottle looks like normally without the holiday motif and it’s just a bottle full of liquid gold literally uh sometimes i’m like how do i have friends this is a holiday one that i purchased last year and look how much i still have left so one thing i want to say about that with the dhc i noticed that people will tend to do anywhere from two three four pumps and you do not need that many this is perfectly designed for one pump to cover your entire face and get all of your makeup off so if you are using two three four pumps you are going to go through this bottle two three four times faster one pump and it will last you so long i mean i can’t i can’t believe how long the bottles last me truthfully as mentioned one bottle lasts me around a year and i use this in the morning and at night i have another one waiting in the wings with their beautiful classic green packaging which i just i love i love a simple package i think it’s very classy the other thing i want to mention beyond the one pump is that this makeup remover it removes everything even the most waterproof makeup but you do need to apply it on dry face with dry hands you do one pump and then you start to do little circles all over your skin and you will start to feel your makeup dissolve when i get to my eyes i will apply the oil there last because i don’t want to get too much product around my eyes or you will get cloudy eyes temporarily for 20 to 30 seconds so i will really get that base makeup get in these crevices around my nose and really make sure that the makeup is dissolving there and then i will take my ring finger and just tap the oil all over my eye you’ll start to feel the makeup dissolve you can gently rub your lashes down and it just dissolves every little last bit of makeup it is incredible okay so yeah i think that’s everything about dhc but i do see people using more than one pump i see people trying to apply it with a wet face which is a huge no-no that’s how the oil starts to dissolve there was one more thing i wanted to mention oh with the dhc oil you do need to give it about 30 seconds to dissolve it’s all soaps all cleansers will always work better if you give them a little bit more time to do their work so give this at least 30 seconds to really dissolve the base of the makeup that’s what it’s doing the oil is getting in there and dissolving any of those waxes or anything that the cosmetics use as their base and then it’ll just rinse off and your pores will be so clean not a blackhead in sight no trace of makeup i have become a fan of the double cleanse in my a.
m skincare video i mentioned the kate summerville face wash which i still do love i also mentioned the dhc face wash this is the face wash powder and i showed how to use this there this is my favorite drugstore face wash of all time it’s such a rich foamy lather it is amazing i will say in the winter it can sometimes be a little bit too drying so uh you know just keep that in the back of your mind this retails for 12.
50 this is how much i have left in the bottle and i think i feel like i’ve had this for 25 years so i don’t know how long they last you it lasts me so long it’s obscene in the summer if i have a breakout i will use this mirad murad murad clarifying cleanser with 1.
5 salicylic acid i have had this little bottle forever i don’t use this one too often because i don’t really break out that often and it can also be really drying but when i do get a breakout i use this one maybe two nights and the breakout is gone i don’t know this is magic in a tube i i’ve heard a lot of people like this murad cleanser who do have acne so i i don’t know why it’s so magic but it is okay so my latest and greatest most favorite product is this tatcha the rice wash this is their newest face wash it is so incredible this is let’s see four ounces of product and retails for 35 this is a ph neutral clean cream cleanser of rice and hyaluronic acid that gently purifies while moisturizing the first time i used this like with face washes the kate somerville the dhc’s were face washes that i used for the first time and i was like okay like we’ve got something here and then i’ve used a million face washes in between just testing out new things and i’m always like one and done two times and done where i’m like this isn’t doing it for me the first time that i used the tatcha i was like we’re on to something it is so creamy the rice has just the perfect amount of exfoliation i don’t really do any physical exfoliation because you know we wipe our faces into towels i do the zip in the morning like there’s enough exfoliation in my life even just rubbing my face into a towel to dry it off so i don’t really exfoliate but this has just enough i don’t want to even say grit but just enough texture that it exfoliates perfectly my face feels so clean after i use this but never tight never irritated in talking about amounts all you need is such a thick and creamy cleanser is legitimately the size of a frozen tea i just dab that everywhere foam it up and it’s enough for your face so i have been using this morning and night since it came to me and my gosh i am completely obsessed this is going to be my winter face wash this is going to be my summer face wash i mean it’s just it’s really really really good i am new to tatcha somebody had asked me about it in the am skincare video and i had not used that much of it at that point and i have been testing out more and more tatcha and i have liked almost every single thing that i’ve tried and that never happens to me the only other time that that’s happened to me is with dhc so i am just completely blown away by the tatcha quality anyhow i’m talking about a face wash like it’s my first born so i’m gonna move it along but yeah i like this after i clean my face i do that double cleanse my face feels good it feels clean it does not feel tight there are no blackheads then i will come out the first thing i do when i get out of the shower is my body lotion and then the second thing i do is lip balm this is my jack black lip balm shea butter and vitamin e spf 25 this is another product where i don’t mess with it i found this years ago like the body wash oil and like the ahava body lotion i just don’t mess with this lip balm it’s all i use now there are a few different varieties here and i purchased the shea butter and vitamin e i am gripping this one so tightly because my fiance steals these from me and then loses them and i i think i like single-handedly have kept the jack black company afloat this year with these lip balms it retails for eight dollars and it’s .
25 ounces of product each tube would probably last a decent amount of time if not stolen and then lost but that does not happen in my home anyhow about the lip balm there’s nothing else like it your lips feel hydrated they’re not super shiny they’re not too matte they just feel really good there’s not really a taste i mean i guess shea butter has sort of a taste there’s not really a taste there’s spf it’s affordable there is nothing better next up is the dhc this is the coenzyme q10 lotion i also discussed this in the am video this is 5.
4 ounces and retails for 38. it has this there’s something about this bottle i know this is such a weird comment but i’m gonna make it anyway this bottle and the cap are the most satisfying weight like it’s just i love dhc i tend to really nurture my skin that’s my plan that’s my game plan when it comes to my skin the reason i specifically love this the dhc coenzyme q10 line is because it just makes my skin so bright and so dense and bouncy it is a collagen enhancing line i’m so terrible explaining all of these things like i mentioned in the zip versus new face video feel like if somebody who’s truly a dermatologist or science scientist tried to listen to me they would just probably hyperventilate trying to listen to me explain things even though i have a deep amount of respect for the scientific community i can never explain anything the right way from my understanding coenzyme q10 is a naturally occurring substance within our own body and it attacks free radicals helps preserve your collagen and whenever i use it my skin just looks and feels really dense and bouncy one thing i will also say is that i always make sure to get this around my neck and over my chest area because this skin right here can just get so dry sometimes i will get a little bit of that turkey neck the vertical lines okay so this is this is the jam so i don’t use a toner per se but i do use this and i put that everywhere especially you know focusing on the neck to make sure that my skin stays really hydrated bouncy looking i have three serums at the moment that i am going in between i don’t use all of them at the same time the first one is this dhc extra concentrate it comes with five of these little containers in the box so you do get one ounce of product total and it is fifty dollars i have been using dhc extra concentrate since my early twenties and i have to say it’s probably one of the most effective products i have used i almost just said in my skincare journey uh i mean i did just say it but i thought it and i was like please don’t ever say that again anyhow this is really good if you have any little fine lines you put this on and then overnight they’re just like bye lately i’ve especially been using this around my mouth because i’m starting to notice some little fine lines so i’ve been using this around my lips i pass them in around my eyes i’ll do some over my forehead i’ll do some around here another product this one skinceuticals just sent to me so thank you this one is the skinceuticals ce for rulic and this is their best selling product i think of all time combines proven antioxidants vitamins c and e with ferulic acid to maximize antioxidant performance this is one ounce and it retails for 166 dollars the skinceuticals and here’s one thing i want to show you why i wrapped a rubber band around this product because i am kind of klutzy and i i tend to overcrowd my bathroom vanity and i was so nervous about knocking this off just being a klutz this one was just sent to me by like i mentioned from skinceuticals so i used it for about a week and i definitely did notice very bright skin it does what it says i decided to go back to the extra concentrate just because this little vial is open and i used about half of it and i did not want this one to go bad so i am definitely going to next month after this is done give this a full go but i really did like what i saw this is the koss rx advanced snail museum advanced snail 96 museum power essence and i’m actually almost done with this bottle i have a little bit left this is another product that my fiance stole from me i had been putting on his face when he had a little bit of i haven’t been putting it on his face he’s an adult man i gave it to him to put on his face and then he was like oh this stuff is really nice i’m gonna hold on to it and then i got the bottle back and i get when i gave them the bottle there was probably about this much left and that’s where we’re at this is 3.
38 ounces of product retails for 23. i want to say and this is a great product if you have a lot of redness so i will let that sink in and then i move on to my eye cream i have talked about this eye cream forever and ever and ever in every video i feel like this is the dhc coenzyme q10 eye cream it’s 0.
88 ounces of product and this retails for 39 this is my favorite eye cream one because of the results i just feel like it makes the skin around my eyes so bright and dense but also it’s super sanitary it’s one of the only eye creams i have found that isn’t a scoop which amazes me i i don’t i don’t love scoop skincare and we’re about to see some scooping coming up when it comes to the night creams but i feel like this is just so sanitary 0.
88 ounces is almost twice the size of every other eye cream i say this in every video but it’s like it’s true i’ve been using this now for five years six years and it’s just the best each tube lasts me about six to eight months depending and i use this morning and night it is it’s just so good i i try so many eye creams just because i want to test things out and really be able to tell you this is the best and usually within a week or two of using another eye cream i’ll notice this area right here underneath my eyes just starts to look so tired i will go back to the dhc and then again within a week i look like myself again i cannot tell you at this point i think i’ve probably purchased six tubes of this cream it’s just amazing with the dhc cleansing oil by the way i realized the other day i have been using this for over 15 years i think i might have mentioned that in the am but like that’s crazy to me i have two night creams that i’m loving i’ll start with the tatcha because this is the newest one this is the tatcha the dewy skin cream this is just a tiny little sample and as you can see i’ve used up almost every single bit of it so i used this for about two weeks just to test it out and i really did notice my skin looking dewy i would wake up and just be super happy with how my skin looked this is a pricier item i will say this is a more touch is a more luxury skincare line so this is 1.
7 ounces and retails for 68 if you are looking to invest in a swanky line then i think you’re going to be happy with the tacha i have been using what i what i want to show you this dhc this is called i’m not going to say it right asta xanthan astaxanthin i don’t i don’t know astaxanthin collagen all-in-one gel this is 4.
2 ounces of product and retails for 49 4.2 ounces of product is insane so most skincare containers are actually around this size but then on the inside they have another little tub and then you get 1.7 ounces of product that’s the standard size for a night cream with the packaging you can see there’s no filler there’s no inside container it’s just all filled with product so you get so much product it’s crazy beyond that this gel is really amazing i will say i i tend to like all of my skincare products to just sink in and be completely weightless and this one is slightly tackier it does not sink in right away but it is very lightweight and it makes my skin so bright i use this everywhere i use this on my face i use it on my neck i use it on my chest and i even use it on my shoulders because i was noticing that there were certain areas of my skin like my shoulders that were starting to look older than the rest of my skin and i just wanted to treat everything right and it’s just a really incredible incredible collagen gel so i highly recommend this it’s just a great one i use it year round this is i think my third tub of this i cannot remember a night cream that i’ve just used every single ounce of product up like this uh it doesn’t really have it has like just kind of smells like a product it doesn’t smell floral it doesn’t smell whatever it just smells like a skin cream like i mentioned it’s a little bit tacky but it does fade and it’s not super heavy it still feels lightweight i just feel it like if i touch my skin i can feel it on my skin so it’s not like a super bam absorbed but i have only nice things to say about this cream i do wish that it was a pump i wish there’s a way that it could pump out but this product is just the jam are the kids do we say this do we say the jam still i don’t know it’s the jam this is the dhc olive virgin oil it’s one ounce of product and it retails for 42 dollars i used to do the extra concentrate and then the oil all over and my skin looked incredible but like i mentioned i really do feel like it’s important to bring the creams everywhere including your shoulders just any skin that’s been exposed i am 39 now and it definitely eventually just catches up to you those moments where you didn’t put sunblock on your shoulders when you know we were younger so the whole reason i’m sharing this is because the olive virgin oil is magic in a bottle but it is very expensive to put it everywhere so i was flying through this stuff so i did switch over to using this gel it’s a more economical option for me to use that gel and then what i do now is i grab this olive oil and i dab this on the parts that i want to be really dewy and hydrated so i’ll dab this around my eyes i will especially focus on this area underneath my eyes i’ll go over my forehead if i need it i tend to get really really kind of tight cheeks i’ll do the center of my neck and that way i can still use this oil without going through a bottle a month which was getting to be an expensive habit but this i cannot explain to you my love of this product i started using this when i was 22 or 23 years old i’m 39 and i still think out of all the face oils i’ve used it’s the best one dhc dhc dhc i tend to like i mentioned i save my workouts for the evening so i will go for a workout later come home shower around seven eight o’clock at night i will do my skincare routine then for the night and then i’ll make dinner hang out watch tv so by the time i go to bed i’ve had my skanker on already for at least four hours the reason i’m mentioning this is because if you do your skincare routine right before bed you might not need to do this but for me i just like to do it as a last step for the evening i’ll do my lip balm again i’ll use the jack black and then i will grab one of these face sprays these are the only two face sprays where i’ve actually noticed a difference and improvement in my skin most of the time i’m like i don’t know i just feel like i just sprayed water on my face but these two i actually noticed a difference the first one as you can see i’m almost out of this one this is my second bottle this is the dhc super collagen mist it’s 1.
6 ounces and retails for 20. i love this i love the sprayer i love like i mentioned my skin is actually plump and hydrated after i use this i purchased one for my grandmother just to have by her chair because i feel like it’s kind of a nice luxury experience to have this during the day if you know your your home working you can keep one on your desk but at night it’s kind of a nice way to just end the day with a mist and then this is my new session again another tatcha product this is the luminous dewy skin mist this is 1.
35 ounces and retails for 48 and i kept seeing people use this after they would do their makeup and their skin would look absolutely beautiful but i did not realize that this is actually meant to be more of a skincare mist so i have been doing my skincare routine like i mentioned and then before bed i’ll just gently spray a little bit of this all over my face and i wake up and i’m like like jlo youthfulness and glow uh and i am really really impressed with this as a skincare product i’m blown away so this has been a new find for me and the tatcha is definitely like i mentioned more of a high-end price point but i do think that the quality of the product backs up their prices that is everything my 67-step pm skincare routine um oh one more thing i want to talk about i have been using this pillow lately now this is called this is a giant thing i don’t know how i’m going to show it to you this is called sleep and glow i want to take the pillow case off and actually just show you the pillow it has these little indents that are cut out around the sides so that you don’t mush your face up your face just rests between it please disregard the color because i have been tanning a lot this summer my self tanner has stained it a little bit but you can see what i mean about these cutouts right here so when you go to bed at night i actually don’t sleep on it this way i tilt the pillow down a little bit and i’ll tuck my face in and you can see how it’s not smushing my eye up if i was just on a traditional pillow you can see how it would smush the skin right there so i was getting those trowels underneath my eyes because i’m a side sleeper and as much as i try i can never be a back sleeper i just can’t do it so if you are a side sleeper you might want to think about investing in a pillow like this because you can see it has it on both sides it really has made a big big difference and it comes with this pillowcase the pillowcase fits the pillow so that you get the full benefits of these cutouts i do want to tell you that the pillow is a little bit pricier i think it’s i want to say it’s around 160.
it is memory foam memory foam is always so expensive i’ve noticed by the way high quality memory foam and i will say this is a really really nice quality sleeping glow sent me this pillow as a pr gift so i do appreciate that but this is not sponsored i hope that makes sense this was this was a pr gift and the mention of it in this video is not sponsored at all i just did genuinely really like the pillow but they also sent me a code for ten dollars off i think that’ll work for like free shipping and that sort of thing so use that if you’re thinking about getting the pillow that will all be listed below all that information is going to be in the description box and in the comments i’ll pin it there as well it took me about two weeks to get to the point where i was really comfortable with it the first week or two i sort of felt like i am not used to memory foam so i guess if you’re used to memory foam maybe it will be an easier transition and then i tried to sleep on a regular pillow once again and i i could not do it it was so uncomfortable and i just so dearly missed this sleep and glow pillow so if you are a side sleeper i highly recommend investing in this because it has made such a difference in the skin around my eyes i don’t get those little crisscrosses anymore from mushing my face at night i really feel like it has helped the skin around my eyes quite a bit okay now we’re really done i’m gonna show you this the next morning so you can see what my skin looks like when i wake up it feels like an important thing to share with you maybe it’s not maybe it is good morning i’ve not even had my coffee yet but i just wanted to show how my skin looks when i wake up after doing this pm routine it’s just really smooth i think from the combination of the collagen enhancing products and from the oil so let’s go in close so you can see it all i just really especially love how adding that little bit of oil really smooths out and plumps around my eyes i really get that glow i wake up my skin just looks exactly how i want it to look when i wake up the skin around my eyes is really smooth really glowing just overall i’m happy with the texture and one thing i noticed about that pillow is that it also really helps like i can get creases right here you can see if i mush my face up like with the traditional pillow but i’ve noticed that this pillow has really helped me so that when i wake up my under eye area is really smooth right here i hope all this makes sense i am not a morning person so i am going to go get some coffee so so oh oh [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] so so i do appreciate it 17 hours of skincare with molly gardner i just i don’t i just love talking about skincare i love talking about like i am not the scientist there are so many good youtube channels with dermatologists and scientists who tell you the ingredients and what they’re doing i am like your friend who just tells you the results you know what i mean like i love the results i get and i could talk about skincare results and texture and all of that forever and ever and ever so if you came along with me on this journey thank you i do i do appreciate it we’re skincare skincare buds all right thank you so much i will see you in the next video this video is going to be like a netflix series by the time it’s done and a pea-sized amount so i just dropped one mama one pump um wow
