It was a pretty funny month for the Japanese beauty boxes, as they sent one item that was the same! Repeats are inevitable but I did find it funny. nmnl included a hand cream by Country & Stream, whose sunscreen they sent previously and I loved — but I give this month to Kira Kira Crate, who put together a plethora of cute sheet masks, bath salts, and a cuticle stick I’ve been using daily.

What did you think of the February nmnl and Kira Kira Crate? Did you have a favorite?

    Hi Valerie,

    Do you still have the actual boxes? I need to know if they will fit my mailbox – can u help to measure them, or at least advise which one is smaller? Thanks!

      Sorry, I don’t hang on to the boxes. NMNL is smaller in size but taller in height, whereas Kira Kira is larger but more flat.
