nomakenolife – nmnl Japanese and Korean Beauty – July 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.

Nomkenolife is celebrating all things summer with the Shibuya Summer box. With a nod to the special shopping ward in Tokyo which is incredibly popular with Japanese youth, we’ve got a great selection of items for summer city life.

The booklet contains everything you need to know about the items inside, as well as some handy tips to deal with the hot weather, which is so important at this time of year.

Innesfree Dodo Body Sheet Pack and Innisfree Sheet Mask – Water Type

Nomakenolife always includes at lest one sheet mask, but it’s great to have to have two! I’ve not seen a body mask before, but this clever product is designed to be soothe and moisturise sunburned skin. We know what it’s like to burn your back (always use sunscreen!) and this is a wonderful bonus for those times when you’ve lost track of your sun exposure.

The Innisfree mask is designed to be used for longer than usual, and provides wonderful moisturising qualities. The water series is great for summer as it also has a lovely cooling effect.

Buzz Color Palette and Malibu Beauty Mascara

Make your eyes pop with this fantastic selection of bright and tropical shades, perfect for making an impact this summer.

The mascara is specially formulated to promote curl in your lashes. It also resists smudging from sweat and oil, but is very easy to remove with warm water.

Vavi Mello First Collection Lip Tint and Buzz 2 in 1 Control Stick

Vavi Mello has collaborated with Niki Sakino, an incredibly popular Japanese beauty YouTuber, to create a collection of three summer lip tints. There’s one of three options in the box, but they are all light and colourful, as lip tint rather than heavy lipstick is perfect for summer days and nights.

The control stick is a clever product that has two ends, one to cover up any small blemishes and the other to enhance and highlight to add a glow to your skin.

Finally, two cute accessories. an eye mask and a hair elastic. With the long days of summer it can be hard to get to sleep if you need an early night, so an eye mask is very useful.

If you have long hair, you can keep it off your neck (so sweaty!) with this cute hairband that is especially good for thick hair.


Our score: 9.0/ 10

I always love the different masks, and I'm fascinated by the sunburn mask. I'm hoping I won't actually need it this year, but it's incredibly useful to have in reserve as it's inevitable I'll catch the sun on my back at some point! The colours of the eyeshadow palette are really fun, as a colourful look is bright sunshine or a warm evening really completes an outfit. I also love the lip tint, especially as I'm not a lipstick fan, but this is the perfect match between lip gloss and the deeper colour of lipstick. There are plenty of fun things here to create a fantastic summer look as well as treat your skin and keep it soft and in great shape.
