nomakenolife – nmnl Japanese and Korean Beauty – November 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.

This month’s box Harujuku Sweet Treats is inspired by the amazing style of Harajuku, knows as the street fashion capital of Japan.

Looks like there’s going to be a candy twist on this theme too!

First up, this cute It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm. This brand specializes in hypoallergenic products that are very gentle on the skin.

This lovely lip balm comes in one of three sweet scents and has this gorgeous macaron shape. Looks and smells good enough to eat!

This Skin’s Boni Yoghurt Wash Off Mud Pack is a great nourishing treatment for your face. I have the Charcoal version, great for cleansing, and the mud pack should be warmed slightly before applying for ultimate smoothness. The pack also looks rather like one of those yogurt drinks, nice for your outside rather than your inside!

With the same shape from this brand, this is a Skin’s Boni Yogurt Mask Pack. This one is a sheet mask rather than cream, and is designed to refresh and hydrate. Great for winter skin.

Sho-Bi Slown Fruits Cheek Colour Palette is a lovely cheek duo that contains two shades for highlighting and enhancing colour. The compact size and magnetic closer makes it perfect for carrying around with you.

This Choosy X Milky Lip Pack has gorgeous packaging design and is a great treat for dry lips. Milky is actually a famous Japanese brand of candy, and they have created several sweet candy scents for this range of lip masks.

Another item from this collaboration, Choosy X Milky Sugar Lip Scrub. This is a lovely gentle scrub for lips, perfect for use in conjunction with the lip mask.

Wipes are a very convenient way to remove makeup, and this pack of 30 Peach Leaf Makeup Remover Wipes are very handy to have in your bag or especially when travelling. With a lovely peach scent they are gentle on the skin and remove makeup very well.

Finally, a Vivid Colour Nail Stand. For devotees of home manicures this is the perfect gadget. You pop the bottle of nail polish in the top and wear it as a ring, which keeps the polish handy and stable.




Our score: 8.8/ 10

I have to say that my favourite item this month is the nail polish holder! I've been looking at these for ages but not got around to buying one, so I'm delighted to receive this one! I love the bright turquoise colour too. The masks are both nice, though they are perhaps a little same-y for me. But I like the lip items. Usually I'm not so keen on multiple similar items, but I think they work together really well. Dry lips can become a particular problem in winter, so the scrub, mask, and balm give you a lovely lip-specific beauty treatment. Of course the macaron packaging is gorgeous too! While this month's isn't that wide-ranging, I think the overall balance is good, especially for winter skin treatment, and the accessory is incredibly useful!
