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,

Beauty Finds© – Skin & Body Care


Here are some Beauty Finds© for skin and body care that I found yesterday at Marshalls®, a great place to find skin, hair, body products, designer body spray and perfume, and bathroom soap.

Marshalls® registered trademark:

NEVER PAY FULL PRICE FOR FABULOUS®

ORGANIK BOTANIK australia BROWN SUGAR FACE SCRUB made in australia

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:

Compare at: $10.00 Price: $4.99

Next:

Revive® BEAUTY CHAMOMILE SPONGE : SOOTHES SKIN & GINGER SPONGE: FADES SCARS FRESH FACED paraben, sulfate & phthalate free, natural cleansing sponges Designed in U.S.A. Made in CHINA

A summarized description of what the packaging states,

This is a two – piece natural cleansing sponge set. It includes one chamomile and one ginger infused sponge made from 100% Konjac Root fibers.

Per the packaging,

“Asian Konjac Root has been used for centuries to gently exfoliate and detoxify skin while naturally balancing skin’s PH levels.” – revive® BEAUTY

I’m looking forward to trying these natural cleansing sponges!

Marshalls® Sticker:

Compare at: $5.00 Price: $3.99

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!

Marshalls® Sticker:

Compare at: $8.00 Price: $4.99
