Origins 24 hours Protectors Set

From the company:
Protect your youth with our age-fighting favorites. 
A Perfect World™ SPF 25 Age-defense moisturizer with White Tea 1.7 oz / 50 ml
A Perfect World™ Antioxidant moisturizer with White Tea .5 oz / 15 ml
A Perfect World™ Antioxidant cleanser with White Tea 1 fl. oz. / 30 ml

With my dry skin and slight oily on my t-zone, I was in a search for an oil free hydrating cream that meets the needs of my skin. I've been eyeing the A Perfect World™ SPF 25 Age-defense moisturizer with White Tea for a while now, and saw that they had a kit with a travel bag, the full size cream, and two travel size extras for the same price as if you would buy the cream alone!

I haven't't tried the cleanser yet, so an updated review will be posted soon. 
The moisturizer had a light fresh scent. My skin felt smooth and comfortable after applying it. This jar seems to have quite a lot of product. I see it lasting me a good amount of time.

Inglot 17 TL Eye Brush and 569 Brow Powder

I've been filling my brows in lately, and wanted a brush to precisely shape my brows. I picked out a dark brown brow powder that I inserted into my freedom system palette that currently also holds three shadows. 
The brush felt really well made, and I will post an update on how it lasts after a few washes. 
Also, an update will be posted of an before and after brow look soon. 

Brush : $12

Brow Powder: $ 9

Inglot AMC Cream Concealer :Best Cream concealer for winter/dry skin

From the company: Rich in Vitamin A and E the Cream concealer uses pigments and light to provide the "SOFT FOCUS" effect

My first purchase from Inglot was the freedom system palette and three eye shadows which I reviewed here.
This time, while browsing at the counter, I focused more on their face products. I am in dire need of a high coverage concealer that can hide my acne scars. With dry skin, most concealers tend to cake up on me or accentuate my dry patches. The sales associate told me this was full coverage and creamy.
I got the shade 62.
After swatching it and testing it out on my skin, I fell in love with the texture and performance of this concealer. Is it possible for a concealer to be almost glossy? It gave out such a natural and radiant finish while concealing my dark spots.
I've been on a winning streak with Inglot so far. High quality makeup and budget friendly.
