Why I Stopped Using CLINIQUE 3 Step Collection


About CLINIQUE

Founded in 1968, CLINIQUE is an Estēe Lauder Company.

Per Estēe Lauder Companies website,

“CLINIQUE’s mission has always been to provide the safest, most effective formulas in simple routines that bring remarkable results.”

Also per the website,

It is allergy tested and 100% fragrance free.

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.

Personal Finance – Financial Literacy Challenge


I have an avid interest in Personal Finance and have been and currently am seeking to get my own finances in order.

Financial Literacy Month is the month of April.

There’s no better time to start learning about personal finance and getting your personal finances in order than now! Let’s hold each other accountable with a challenge! I know accountable is such a touchy word for some people, if you have any ounce of integrity it means that you actually have to do what is being stated as the terms of accountability.

For this Personal Finance – Financial Literacy Challenge let’s commit to reading Personal Finance books during the month of March and making the necessary changes that we learn about, need to, and are able to do to get our finances in order.

I am currently reading a book entitled, Getting Your Financial Hou$e in Order A Floorplan for Managing Your Money by David and Debbie Bragonier with Kimn S. Gollnick. I checked it out of my local public library on 3/1/2018.

So far it is very enlightening and interesting. I may do a book review when I’m done reading it!

How will we keep each other accountable?

1. Comment on this blog post with the book that you are reading along with the date you checked it out.

2. When you’re done, give the areas where you made changes to your personal finance to bring your finances in order. If the material that you read in the books that you check out is the same material and you have already made changes in the areas, list something that would benefit others to know (i.e. opening an online bank account at an online bank vs. opening an bank account at a local or physical bank.)

3. Give a “brief summary” of the book.

That’s it! There are twenty eight days left in March. Let’s go!

Until Next Time,

Everybody Isn’t Depressed Or Experiencing Depression, They’re Just Broke!


This might help someone today:

Everybody isn’t depressed or experiencing depression. 

Some people are just broke. They don’t have any money to:

1. Catch a plane for a vacation.

2. Go do something that will be fulfilling. 

3. Go visit that friend or relative.

4. Buy that dress, suit, book, car, or house that they’ve been desiring. 

5. Go get their hair done or to do it themselves.

6. Go to lunch or take a friend to lunch. 

If they had the money to do some of these things there would be a significant difference in their behavior. 

Some people are not depressed they are just broke! They don’t have any money!

A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things. – Ecclesiastes 10:19 KJV

Until Next Time,
