Current Skin Care Routine

Currently I am using the following skin care products:

Clean and Clear- Deep Action Cream Cleanser
I am not loyal to a particular cleanser.  As long as it removes makeup I'm happy.  This reminds me of being a teenager.  I used to buy this years ago.  I love the tingly feeling and clean, refreshing smell.  
Clarins- Toning Lotion
Last month during my lunch break at work I went to Bloomingdale's on 59th Street, NYC.  The makeup selection at this Bloomies is phenomenal.  They have so many different brands.  I ended up at Clarins.  I needed a new toner and moisturizer.  The sales associate recommended this one.  It has a strong Camomile scent which can be overwhelming to some.  I find my skin has become brighter with continued use.  I apply with a cotton ball morning and evening before my moisturizer.
Clarins- Extra Firming Day Cream
My one skin concern is preventing future wrinkles, lines, and loss of firmness.  Of course I am not old enough to have any of this, but I would like to take care of my skin now.  Overall I am happy with quality of this product.  It absorbs quickly into my skin and is not too heavy.

Summer Sandal Wish List

Tory Burch Miller in Black Patent- $195
I have a $100 gift card to Nordstrom so I am thinking of getting this sandal.

Sam Edelman Gigi in Almond Patent- $60
The perfect nude color that will match anything.

Sam Edelman Ross in Pewter- $100
I really like the blue stones on this sandal.  I am hoping they look just as good in person.

Thanks for reading :-)

Sephora Haul

Check out the items I picked up at Sephora today!

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask- $34
The reason I purchased this mask is because once it hardens you can peel it off.  Hopefully it will help with the black heads on my nose and cheeks.  I only used it once and it was a bit messy but fun to peel off!  I did not see any immediate results however I want to use it a few more times before I decide if I like it. 

Pink Face Brush- $5
I tend to buy products and not use them because I can be very lazy (especially with skin care routines).  My plan is to see if I can use this brush daily when I wash my face.  If I can get into the habit of using this at least once a day I will look into purchasing a Clarisonic.  I know that if I buy the Clarisonic today I would use it daily for two weeks then eventually I would not even touch it.  

Tweezerman Pedro Foot Scrub- $20
In my mind hot weater is right around corner.  I am constantly looking online at sandals.  I even bought shorts the other day!  A little silly since it will sit in my drawer for 3 months.  Anyway with these sandals I am fantasizing about I will need nice feet.  I decided to buy this pumice stone on a stick.  It has two sides with different textures.  I used it once in combination with the foot lotion below and I am impressed.  Is it worth $20?  No.  I'm sure I could have found a pumice stone at Wal-Mart for half the price.  I plan to use this a few times a week in the shower.

Soap & Glory Heel Genius- $15
I never tried a foot cream before so I picked this up on a whim.  I figured after the pumice stone I would need a lotion to apply.  This smells okay and absorbs quickly.  I used it during the day once.  I read the reviews on and most people apply it at night and sleep with socks so it can work its magic overnight.  Even the bottle suggests to use it nightly.  I have dry cracking heels and I am hoping with continued use my feet will become very smooth.
