nomakenolife – nmnl Japanese and Korean Beauty – April 2021

Nomakenolife contains 8 – 9 items of cosmetic, hair, and skincare products from both Japan and Korea, two places which are very serious about their beauty products.

They have one-, three-, six-, and 12-month subscriptions costing from $35 (around £27) for one month (longer subscriptions are cheaper). Shipping is free.

This month nomakenolife has come up with a really fun theme: Gorgeous Gourmet, a cool collection of food-related beauty items.

There’s a full menu in the booklet, which tells you about each product, how to use and where it originates, plus there are fun beauty tips and tricks.

Bear Bath Buddy and Handmade Dessert Soap.

The Bear Bath Bunny is something I’ve never seen before but it’s fascinating. It’s a way to recreate the experience of a Japanese mineral bath in your home! The little bear head is hollow, and inside the box is a little bag filled with various mineral stones, which you put in the bear head. This sits in the bath and releases the minerals into the water to give you a lovely relaxing experience. Plus the bear head adds a fun kawaii touch!

This beautiful dessert soap is almost too pretty to use! It also has a great social connect too, as these soaps are made by a group of people with disabilities, and this supports them to gain independence and productivity. The soap itself is all natural and environmentally friendly.

The Saem Eyeshadow, Etude House Dear Darling Lip Tint, and Juicy Konjac Face Sponge.

I really like this eyeshadow, it’s a lovely colour for everyday wear, though the packaging on mine looks a little different from that shown in the menu booklet.

The lip tint is a terrific product, it has great shine and colour without being too thick. Oh, and it looks like an adorable little popsicle too!

Kontjac sponges are the best thing to wash your face. They’re all natural, incredibly gentle even on very sensitive skin, and this one is infused with nourishing cherry blossom. When these sponges finally wear out you can simply compost the, so no waste!

Lemon Point Pads, Choosey Betty Boop Lip Pack, and Skinfood Veggie Garden Face Mask.

Three masks this month! They all have slightly different purposes too. The set of ten small point pads are really useful for targeting problem areas, plus they have a lovely refreshing scent. The lip pack is fantastic for the dry lip area, especially as we are coming out of cold weather which is always tough on delicate skin. The vegetable mask is one of eight varieties, all made with fruit and vegetable essence to really nourish your skin.



Our score: 9.8/ 10

I'm really happy to have another kontjac sponge, as I love to use them with face cleanser. Also face masks are a favourite of mine, and three is a real treat! I think the mineral bear is an amazing and original thing, I adore taking baths so this is an item I'm really going to enjoy using. Altogether this is a really original theme, I love the emphasis on skincare, and the lovely ethical and socially conscious soap is a real bonus.
