Since inception, nmnl has had a minimum of 5 items while Kira Kira has 6-7 usually. This month both boxes featured a mixture of skincare and makeup. Both boxes featured the brand Coupy. nmnl included sheet masks that I ended up loving but overall Kira Kira was the winner for me — the products were much more exciting overall. The value is hard to determine with Japanese products as it can be hard to actually find them anywhere — especially with less known brands that these two boxes heavily feature.
