nmnl is a monthly Japanese beauty subscription box by the brains behind Tokyo Treat and Yume Twins. They promise to deliver a Japanese beauty experience curated by people familiar with the current trends in Japan.
DEAL: Save $3 on your first box! Use coupon code 3off.
The information booklet has information about the products. I wish this was more detailed to include ingredients as well as the actual brand names, as most nmnl items are lesser known brands I’ve never heard of or are very obscure.
Country and Stream Honey & Hand Cream — I love Country & Stream’s sunscreen we were sent in a previous box. The hand cream has a similar light citrusy honey scent. Awesome!
Kumawash — A facial soap that is meant to help under eye circles. An interesting concept. I don’t use bar soap on my face but I really am interested in some of the ingredients. I couldn’t find a lot of info online, but it has AHA, ceramides, and collagen in it.
Metal Lipgloss — Wow, this colour is definitely vibrant. The metallic finish is interesting. Again, I couldn’t find a lot of information on the maker (PRM) but the gloss is a beautiful shade and I might keep this one for myself.
Color Mud Pack — I had a chuckle because Kira Kira Crate sent out this same mask… and I even got the same colour! The green pack has mugwort and soybean, and is a fun way to do a mask. I know many people do multi-masks and use different colours or ingredients on different parts of their face… this will be fun to try.
Profael Oil and Water Essence — nmnl sends out Profael products often but I can never find any info about the brand! Cosme some of their products listed but none of the ones we’ve been sent. This is when I wish nmnl would include ingredient lists so I can see if this product would work for me. But it’s an oil and water essence you shake to combine, then use on your skin to add hydration.
The February box was a big improvement over January, in terms of what I like to see included in a box. I thought it was funny they sent the same mask as the other Japanese beauty box. And I still wish they would include ingredients lists… and more info about the brands. I was most excited about the hand lotion and the cool metallic lipgloss!
