I found this subscription box from Instagram and after checking their previous boxes, I think they give a fair amount and values of products. Comparing to other Asain beauty subscription box, I think it is not a bad idea to give it a try since it is all Japanese products which are so hard and expensive to buy online from the United States!
NMNL stand for No Make No Life. It literally is a beauty subscription box cost $29.99/month with free worldwide shipping. 😉 Each box includes 5-7 full-size beauty products. Check out their Instagram for the updates and giveaway. (They have free box giveaway once a while. So far is like once a month. Go check them out so you don’t miss the chance.)
Angel Recipe All in One Essence
This is an essence that has collagen, arbutin, vitamin C and much more. It claims to nourish and rejuvenate our skin, suppresses melanin production and prevents freckles and uneven coloring, and brightening our skin.
We are supposed to use essence after toner, serum and before lotion/moisturizer. It is in clear gel form. When spread out, it becomes watery and hydrates my skin really well. It has a very light chemical scent. Almost unnoticeable. I just try it few days so haven’t seen any brightening effect yet. My skin is dry recently, and it doesn’t help anything. I will continue to try it. I will update this with you guys in future.
Country & Stream Honey UV Water Gel
This is a watery gel type of sunscreen. It has honey, royal jelly extract and different types of collagens and hyaluronic acids. It also has rosemary, jojoba and lavender extract to help our skin stay moisturized.
I was so excited to try this since it is in a pump type container and has a decent amount (180g). I think this will be my all-time hand & neck sunscreen. But! The scent is so awful! It reminds me of fever medicine. XD When it gets absorbed, the scent just fade away. It scents a little bit like alcohol too. Bearable for me. The texture is very watery. When it is on my hand, it is dripping. I am wondering if this can really protect my skin from UV light since it is too light weight. It is dry for normal to dry skin people. I think it is good for oily skin since it is very lightweight and not oily. My sensitive skin didn’t react to it so it is fine to try for some people with sensitive skin. Overall, I think I like it in the summer or warm weather.
Lumi Deco Nail Decal
This is a super interesting nail sticker. (Is this the name?) This is a special nail art that lights up when we use electronic money cards such as a train pass or device that emit nfc waves. I haven’t found a way to light it up but I am so excited to try it!
Candy Doll Lip & Cheek Cream
I have reviewed this Lip & Cheek Cream in my previous post: Korean vs Japanese – 2-way Lip & Cheek product I think I just need a more red color. This rose pink is too light for me. XD
Makeup Block Beauty Tools
This is a 3-in1 makeup tool comes with eyebrow, lip, and a spoolie brushes. This can store in a makeup pouch easily. If we only need the lip brush only, it will save so much space. I hope they have an eyeshadow and eyeliner brushes version since those are more handy. Love this idea. <3
Bonus item: Ahalo Butter Shampoo & Hair Mask Samples
This is a bonus item in this box! I already try it and love it! It has a super cute packaging. (my type <3) It has a nice scent and cleans my scalp well. The hair mask makes my hair soft and silky. It is not a heavy oily type of silky. I am going to purchase a full-size to switch my routine. Let’s see if it is a one-time thing or it helps in a long run too.
I think this box is really good value! You remember I mentioned in my previous post that Candy Doll Lip & Cheek Cream cost $19 USD on eBay? It is 2/3 of the box price already. I haven’t added up all item price but I believe this box is worth for the price. At least they are all full-size product. By the way, they ship to 120+ countries! I am glad that I am not sharing something you guys can’t get. XD
Have you tried any of these or similar products? What do you think about Japanese beauty product or Asian beauty in general? I love all of you sweetie <3 I will see you again very soon!
