My Beginnings With CLINIQUE

1. My mother told me about it. It was something she saw in a magazine or newspaper and she thought that it would be good for me.

2. I also, having an avid interest in skincare, skincare products, beauty products and wanting to have great, beautiful skin, and for my skin to look it’s best, years ago, I tried and started using CLINIQUE Three Step Collection.

At that time, in my young adult years, by the grace of God, I could afford it and the upkeep; maintenance of the product. At least, in my mind and my thinking at that time, I “thought” I could. Now, I have a better understanding of money and value. I did “literally” and “tangibly” have the money to buy it and replenish it when I needed more, it was an investment into my skin and appearance, however, I didn’t have any assets, stock, or long term valuables. But this subject is for another blog and blog post. I have a personal blog about Financial Wealth Management called, Fabulous Finances. Follow to receive posts!

I would purchase CLINIQUE 3 Step Collection from my local, at that time HUDSON’S department store. It is now Macy’s. I still remember the light yellowish big block of facial soap and the sea foam green soap dish – case with the words CLINIQUE across the top of it. I started with the collection for Combination Skin and began switching the toner out for the Combination Oily toner. It became my daily and nightly skin care routine, until I noticed that my skin began to turn dark!

I stopped using it. And I personally, am leary about using it again. It is one of those you know that it did this to your skin, type of thing, therefore you are not going to or don’t want to use it again.

I am African American. I had or have sensitive skin. My skin may have become non sensitive or I just haven’t encountered anything that has irritated it lately.

This is my first hand personal experience with CLINIQUE 3 Step Collection. If you have experienced anything like this, please feel free to share your experience below.

Until Next Time,
