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. The booklet has gotten much more in-depth lately, but I still am hoping they begin to include English ingredient lists for the makeup and skincare products.
The first items I saw were licensed Sanrio items!
Hello Kitty Beauty Blender — A silicone beauty blender dupe that has Hello Kitty printed on it. It’s so soft and squishy! I don’t wear foundation but I want to try this with other liquid products like highlighter.
Rillakuma Blotting Papers — Super cute blotting papers in a kawaii Rillakuma case! Each sheet is printed with the bear characters.

The adorable printed sheets!
Patting Cotton Swab — A pack of five oversized cotton swabs that contain essence similar to what is in sheet masks. This one has witch hazel, hyaluronic acid, and calendula to soothe and hydrate skin.
Peach Scrub Soap — A delicious smelling peachy soap that contains konjac (sponge) to exfoliate and smooth rough skin. This soap is especially designed to exfoliate your butt! Hahaha, I love it. It smells great and doesn’t feel too rough.
Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette — Dolly Wink is one of my favourite brands from Japan; the items are cute, the packaging is adorable, and the price point isn’t too bad! nmnl has sent us a few Dolly Wink products before and they are always the standout items to me! This is a neutral quad.
Shampoo Bubble Net — I use a mini version of a net like this to foam up my face cleanser; the idea is that making the bubbles before you put them on your skin, versus creating the lather ON your skin, is that you’re not tugging at your skin too much which can create wrinkles. It makes sense that your hair is the same story, so with this net you lather up your shampoo and then apply to your hair for a more gentle washing experience with less pulling and tugging. You can use this for body wash as well!
The quad has a light pink, a neutral yellow-toned beige, brown, and a dark grey/taupey colour.
nmnl has made some definite improvements over the last couple of boxes. I like that they included several tools for us to try this month. The peach soap is awesome and I love the quad. Licensed Sanrio goods are always welcome as well.
