NoMakeNoLife Review February 2018

NoMakeNoLife is a subscription-based service that delivers you a box full of unique japanese beauty products from Tokyo straight to your doorstep. Their aim is to introduce Japanese culture via beauty products that not only look good but make you feel good. They kindly sent us this box for review.

Japanese beauty products are extremely popular right now. I have a couple of friends who swear by them and will use nothing but. NoMakeNoLife is probably the most popular Japanese beauty box on the market, and for good reason. They have great packaging, an informative product booklet, they focus on full-size products (no tiny samples here) and the price point is extremely reasonable.

NoMakeNoLife Review February 2018 – Final Thoughts

My February NoMakeNoLife suffered some damage during the shipping process this month and the Profael Oil & Water W Essence ended up leaking all over the box. I could smell it as soon as I picked the box up off the post office counter. Luckily nothing else was damaged, there was just a little clean-up to do while going through the contents of the box. I didn’t bother reaching out to NMNL customer service but I’m pretty confident they would have shipped me a new product had I requested one. Other than that, things were just as they normally are. The box was packaged nicely, the product card gave me ample information on each product and we received a nice mixture of beauty items. I’m pretty excited about the Color Mud Pack. My inner child will come out when applying that one because it’s probably going to remind me of finger-painting in Kindergarten. I’m also very happy that we received a hand cream. The tail end of Winter is always the worst when it comes to dry skin and my hands need a little extra TLC right about now.
