Nomakenolife: Sweet in Seoul – April 2022

Nomakenolife may come from Japan, but this month they’re embracing the K-beauty side and taking a trip to South Korea with the Sweet in Seoul box!

The booklet has some fun info about Seoul, plus recommendations of places to visit (they look very tempting!) and of course descriptions and usage guide for every item in the box.

Nobly Moisturising Egg Pack

This product has great fun presentation, as a little egg! Fortunately there’s a step-by-step guide in the menu booklet for how to use it. It’s a face pack that you leave on overnight for lovely smooth skin, and. you actually get two in the pack, which is really useful. Plus it’s super cute as well, the pack even includes a little spoon to mix up your ‘egg’ before applying!

Delicious Lip Cream Chips Chips, 16Brand Fruit Chu Lip Tint

Chupa Chups may be known as famous lollipops, but not you can get those flavours in a lip cream! It comes in one of three flavours, and I have to say that this cola version smells exactly like the real thing. Also it’s lovely to use, and a great addition to my lip balm collection.

The lip tint is a level ip from lip balm, offering hydration with a lovely subtle colour and sheen. The colours are inspired by friuty dummies, and they smell pretty good too!

Crayon Touch-Me Baked Sweets Eyeshadow, 16Brand Candy Rock Sugar Party Shadow

Brown is a very useful subtle shade for eyeshadow, and this lovely dual-shade palette is no exception. The colours are all inspired by baked goods – I’ve got Cheesecake – and they go on very nicely with a good amount of pigment. Great for a subtle look.

Another 16Brand product and another eyeshadow. This time it’s in a more unusual form, in a little pot with an applicator rather like a lip tint. But it works well and has a great long-lasting sheen, more of a party version to the other eye shadow.

Etude House Sheet Mask Manuka Honey, Pure Smile Strawberry Essence Mask

A pari of sweet masks here, Manuka honey is known for its healing properties, and this mask firms and moisturises the skin beautifully.

The Strawberry Essence mask contains collagen and hyaluronic acid for balancing skin and providing extra moisture. They both also smell delicious!

Oheya Mokomoko Dry Hair Band

There microfibre hair bands are one of may favourite hair accessories, and I can never have too many of them! They’re perfect to help you dry your hair more quickly without damaging towel rubbing, and they are also great to keep your hair out of your face.

Our score: 9.4/ 10

While the theme didn't seem super-pertinent to me, the contents this month are great! The hairband is incredibly useful, and I also love the lip balm and the egg mask. The other masks are also terrific for my collection, and it's nice to have makeup that is a more discreet colour once in a while. A really nicely balanced selection this month, plus a great accessory that I'll enjoy using again and again!
