nomakenolife – nmnl Japanese Beauty – July 2018

nomakenolife is a monthly subscription box of Japanese cosmetics and beauty products. Japanese women take their skincare very seriously, and their beauty products are superb quality. They are also very big on products which contain natural ingredients, including collagen, and avoiding harsh chemicals.
Here are the basics:
They have one-, three-, six-, and 12-month subscriptions costing from $29.99 (£22.46) for one month (longer subscriptions are cheaper). Shipping is free.
This is their lovely shipping box. There’s also a menu booklet with details about each item, plus some fun extra stuff about Japanese beauty. Ordinarily I’d be able to show you a bunch of pictures of the booklet, but it seems that a June booklet was included by mistake! Anyway, the lovely people at nomakenolife sent me a picture of the menu:
Here it is! 
So, let’s have a closer look.
This Venus Spa Sakura Fragrance Stick is exactly how it sounds.  It’s rather like a solid deodorant stick, but it’s alcohol free and doesn’t leave a residue. It has a lovely fresh blossom fragrance, and is an easy way to perfume your skin.
This sheet mask is called a Dessert Mask. There are three possible varieties, and this one is the Mint Orange. 
If you have flyaway hair this Brush Styling Sheet might be useful.
You attach it to your hairbrush and then brush as normal, and the sheet gives you hair a nice sheen.
This is a Double Colour Eyeshadow Crayon. It’s a soft fat crayon with two smooth colours, a base and an accent. This one is the amethyst version, so the two colours are neutral silver and purple. You can use one or both colours, or mix them together.
Finally, a hair product, Argan Repair Oil. It uses and organic oil blend to repair damaged hair and also protect it from the sun.
This is an interesting selection of products. I’m not quite sure about the hair sheets, as while I think it’s a great idea in principle, my hair is quite shiny and very fine, so I don’t brush it that much! The eyeshadow isn’t really my kind of colours, though I quite like the idea of the pencil and the mixing of the shades.
I’m really pleased to have another sheet masks, as I love Japanese sheet masks, and this one sounds lovely. 
I’ve never seen a fragrance stick before, and it actually seems like a really nice practical idea. The smell itself is quite sweet, but not sickly.
The hair oil is really good for summer. Hair can get quite dry in the heat, and things like swimming can really affect it, so a lovely nourishing treatment oil is a fantastic idea. 
Now to value. As these are all Japanese brands it’s often very difficult to find prices on these, so I’m not going to do an individual breakdown. I will say that I’ve never had a box that wasn’t good value for money.
 

Our score: 8.8/ 10

A great summery selection of items for face, skin, and hair!
