Absence ♡

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to explain what’s been going on and why I haven’t been posting weekly which is what I wanted to do. I haven’t posted for around a month for 2 reasons; firstly my computer started to freeze all the time which meant I wasn’t able to upload pictures or search of anything. Secondly I moved apartments, YAYYYYYY!

I loved my old apartment, but it was time to leave that old unhappy part of my life behind.

Now I feel ready to give you my weekly reviews now that moving has all finished!

I will be planning to upload 1 post a week on a Wednesday.

I’m interested in letting you know about other fun places in Seoul, BUT this page was meant to be reviews only. So I’m going to keep it that way!

I’ve also just opened a showyourseoul Facebook and Instagram because I know WordPress isn’t everyone’s cup of tea!



(Someone already had the showyourseoul name on instagram but never posted anything… crying-face.png if you see it become available let me know ^^)

Like and follow me there to get the star rating and then click on the link to get a more through review!

Love you Seoulers,

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ♡


Yesterday my Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask arrived in the post!

One thing about Korea is it sends things fast, I ordered it on Sunday and it came on Tuesday…


Here is the packaging, the company also sent me a little set to try which contained the Berry scent of the Lip Mask and the Water Sleeping Mask.

However, on to the review!

Laneige does this particular mask in 4 scents/flavors (Vanilla, Apple Lime, Berry and Grapefruit), before I ordered mine I went into the store to to pick my favourite and I fell in love with vanilla. However, the best seller is berry so if you’re unable to go and smell them it’s best to go with that!

It comes with a little instruction booklet with lots of different languages on it. Inside the pot is a thick cream which the instructions say to put a generous amount onto your lips, fall asleep and then wipe it off with a tissue in the morning.

Normally I cannot fall asleep with stuff on my face… but after a couple of minutes it didn’t even feel like anything was there!

After easily falling asleep I woke up this morning with  a terrible cold, HOWEVER my lips feel fantastic. They feel soft and kind of matt? I’d love to try lip tint or stick on top because I think it make a great primer.

I can understand the hype of the product, I probably wouldn’t use it every night? But I’m going to try it when I can feel my lips are becoming chapped and see if that helps.

Provisionally I would give this product 5 stars! It smells amazing and my lips feel fantastic.


But I will update this post when I use it on a chapped lips!
