In 2012, I use to purchase from Target, SheaMoisture® Established 1912 AFRICAN BLACK SOAP Kit, that contained the soap, clarifying mask, and lotion.

Similar kit:

I went to Target and came across a 5 fl oz/ 15 mL packet of SheaMoisture® Established 1912 AFRICAN BLACK SOAP CLARIFYING MUD MASK w/ Tamarind Extract & Tree Oil.

This was my first time using the mask in about 4 years. Prior to using the mud mask, I washed my face with:

Pears Glycerin Soap

As you can see, it is thin in it’s consistency, it is not a heavy mask. 

Please note:  One time use is not enough time to provide a review of the product, but I can share my results from using it that night.

I had blemished areas in which I desired to clear up.

This is the results, after washing the mask off:

This is the final results, with a thin layer of Extra Virgin Coconut Oil on my face:

My Results:

I enjoyed just doing the mask in and of itself! Taking some time to pamper myself and relax. I also enjoyed working on my skin, to clear it up. I was excited about what the packaging states regarding the product and excited for those results to be taking place on my face. I can’t really say, if the mask brightened my skin, I noticed my skin brightened from the previous products used prior to using the mask.

Tone Your Skin With This!


apple-cider-vinegar-3506650_1920

Years ago, I started using Apple Cider Vinegar, the kind that you purchase at the grocery store, that you use in your salads, that can be used to Bar-B-Que with,  in my hair within my natural hair routine.

During my natural hair research, I came across how apple cider vinegar helps with the porosity of your hair. So I incorporated it in my natural hair routine. While applying and rinsing my hair with the apple cider vinegar within my natural hair routine, I noticed how the residue of it falling on my face, TONED, my skin!

It is a natural toner! I incorporated it in my then and at a point later skin-care routine! (I do believe that you should switch up your routines. Your skin can become resistant to the product or products that you have been using, your skin can also change, and the product or products are not providing the results that you were experiencing before.) I would use it as toner after washing my face. Now the smell of it is something that you will have to get over or get use to, however, it brought me results.

There’s not a particular brand that I would recommend, apple cider vinegar, is apple cider vinegar, however, if you want a more potent type of apple cider vinegar, it is available, try a natural health food store in your area or Amazon, click on the  picture of Bragg Organic RAW – UNFILTERED APPLE CIDER With The “Mother”.

Please note, I am not a dermatologist, this is based off my own experience with my skin. Everyone’s skin is different and you would have to try it to see if it works for you!

 

So how do you try it? DO NOT APPLY APPLE CIDER VINEGAR BY ITSELF ON YOUR SKIN! DILUTE IT!

I used a spray bottle that you can purchase at the dollar store or any store for cheap. Dilute the apple cider with water in the spray bottle and spray it as a spritzer on your face and if you want to use it in your hair, do it this way as well! After you apply the “Apple Cider Vinegar Toner” rinse your skin thoroughly. Follow through with the rest of your skin care routine! Moisturize!

If you try the “Apple Cider Vinegar Toner” comment back and let me know!

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.

Until Next Time,

Marshalls® registered trademark:

NEVER PAY FULL PRICE FOR FABULOUS®

Brown sugar is an exfoliator. I personally have used a piece of real brown sugar and extra virgin olive oil to exfoliate my lips before. (Something I read about online and I decided to try with extra virgin olive oil).

Per the packaging,

“Brown sugar is a gentle exfoliator perfect for sensitive skin with softer and finer particles.” – ORGANIK BOTANIK australia

Marshalls® Sticker:

A summarized description of what the packaging states,

And lastly for yesterday’s trip,

Flori di Lavanda BODY LOTION with Lavender Essential Oil by PHYTORELAX LABORATORIES MADE IN ITALY

I love Lavender!

One reason, I decided to purchase this because it has real Lavender Oil in it. And upon looking at the ingredients for Lavender today, I saw where it also has Lavender Flower Extract in it. Some products that say that it is Lavender based or that use the Lavender name really don’t have lavender in them.

Lavender is known for it’s calming and soothing effect. It is also great to use for sleeping. I love it!

Compare at: $8.00 Price: $4.99
