Both boxes were a bit underwhelming this month after such a strong series of boxes from both. Both boxes sent fun costume/printed PureSmile masks and both boes sent some cute sponges (makeup sponges and a konjac sponge). Kira Kira had more of a focus on acne while nmnl was more of a makeup and skincare focus.

What did you think of this month’s nmnl and Kira Kira Crate? Did you have a favorite?
