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.
Country & Stream Honey Oil Pack ($10.74) — By now I’m sure you’ve caught on that Country & Stream is now one of my FAVE lines and it’s thanks to nmnl that I’ve been introduced to it. This is a honey-scented gel pack that contains a very gentle and fine scrub. Because of the thick gel texture, it’s meant to be worn while taking a bath or shower, and can protect your skin from drying out from the steam and heat.
Ingredients: Ethylhexyl palmitate, mineral oil, sucrose, (palmitic acid / hexyldecanoic acid) dextrin, palmitic acid dextrin, PEG-20 glyceryl triisostearate, Shea butter, jojoba seed oil, Macadamia seed oil, squalane, bis (caprylic / capric acid ) Glyceryl, (behenic acid / eicosanedioic acid) glyceryl, Argania spinosa nuclear oil, caninabara fruit oil, sunflower seed oil, olive fruit oil, macadamia nut fatty acid phytosteryl, (citric acid / lactic acid / linoleic acid / oleic acid) glyceryl, acrylic Acid Na graft starch, palm oil, honey extract, chamomile flower extract, phenoxyethanol, vaseline, tocopherol, beeswax, perfume
Angelite U Long & Curl Mascara ($10.74) — We were sent an Angelite U eyeliner last month and this month it’s mascara. The packaging is so cute!
The brush is small to get into all the corners. This mascara can be removed with just water, which makes me suspect it might be a fiber or tubing mascara.
Rice Bran Masks ($5.37) — A pack of TEN sheet masks! Awesome! The masks are infused with a rice bran essence which is soothing, hydrating, and makes a glossy finish. I don’t see fragrance on the ingredients list but they do contain parabens if that bothers you.
Ingredients: Water, glycerin, DPG, ethanol, BG, rice fermented liquid, rice bran oil, rice bran extract, glucosylceramide, cladosiphon fly caledoniae polysaccharide, brown alga extract, xanthan gum, PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, citric acid, citric acid Acid Na, polyglyceryl oleate-10, lecithin, pentylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, methyl paraben, etidronic acid 4Na
Fish Tail Brush — A super cute blush brush in the shape of a fish. I already have one of these, and I don’t think they’re particularly “Japanese” but they are very cute. This one comes with a handy plastic cover to protect the bristles.
Rillakuma Eyelash Curler ($5.73, similar) — YAY, a licensed San-X goodie! Rillakuma is so cute, and this eyelash curler comes with a spare pad on the bottom of the handle. Great idea!
nmnl put together an amazing box for September! A mixture of trendy products and some brands I really love.
