nomakenolife – nmnl Japanese and Korean Beauty – December 2020

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.

We might not be able to party as much as usual in this festive season, but there’s still plenty of reason to stay beautiful!

This December box is called Winter Wish List.

The menu booklet gives you details of all the items inside, including guidance on usage, and it also tells you where each item is from.

Japanese Essence Lotion. This is one of five types of ‘essence lotion’ which are designed to tone and moisturise your skin without leaving it greasy. The one I have here is Hatomugi, also known as coix seed, and is perfect for dulll winter skin.

Kinu Hada Soy Milk Face Wash. This is one of the lovely Japanese foaming face washes, which gently cleanse your skin without leaving it feeling tight or uncomfortable.

Innesfree Face Mask. This is one of three possible varieties of sheet mask, which contain eucalyptus cellulose and is totally biodegradable. It’s the cream base version which is rich and nourishing on the skin.

Spinns Multi-Stick. This is one of those multi-use cosmetics that add a hint of colour and shimmer to lips, cheeks, or even decolletage!

Dolly Angel 33 Colour Eyeshadow Palette. This is an amazing selection of colours, each with a lovely shimmery finish. You can create any look from the natural to the dramatic, all in some beautiful earth tones perfect for winter.

Milico Chocolate Brown Mascara. Brown mascara is always a great choice for everyday wear, even for the darkest of eyelashes, and this is a great size for easy portability too.

Dolly Wink Long Lasting Eyeliner Pencil. This wind-up pencil dried quickly and has a great non-smudging finish. It also contains jojoba oil for a little extra moisture on the delicate eye area.

Etude House Eyebrow Pencil and Brush. This pencil is shaped for great control of the eyebrow line, and the brush on the other end is perfect to blend the pencil and smooth your brows into shape.



Our score: 9.4/ 10

Both skincare and cosmetics are really complementary this month. Winter weather is not kind to skin, so extra moisturizing and protecting products are very welcome. I'm especially pleased with the face wash, I think Japanese foaming wash is the best thing possible for your skin so I'm delighted to have some more. The makeup is focused mostly on eyes, and have a great balance of every day and special occasion. The eyeshadow palette is the real stand out here, with so many different possibilities and the shimmer adding extra glamour to the most simple looks! A great selection for the winter months.
