Review: No Make No Life August Subscription Box

No Make No Life August Box Flatlay

No Make No Life (NMNL) is a Tokyo-based subscription box that delivers a monthly boxes of beauty related products. This company is behind the Tokyo Treat and Yume Twins subscription boxes. The team from No Make No Life aim to curate and deliver high-quality and unique Japanese beauty products to improve your daily beauty routine. Each month’s box of goodies are sent out in a simple black cardboard box with the brand initials “nmnl” printed on the top. I have now been subscribed to the No Make No Like boxes for a few months and enjoyed discovering what new things are inside.

So let’s take a look at what was inside the August box.

Hada Bijin Tofu Soap

Hada Bijin Tofu Soap

This soap is packaged to look like a freshly made tofu in a little basket that also serves as a soap dish. A foaming net is included to help you create the perfect bubbly lather every time. This tofu soap, like the name suggests, includes ingredients that are used in the tofu-making process such as soybean extract and bittern that are meant to have moisturising properties. The Hada Bijin Tofu Soap also contains extracts of apricot seed, yuzu fruit and polyglutamic acid to retain the moisture in the skin. I don’t usually use soap and am more of a body wash person so wasn’t as interested with this addition in this month’s box but I do like the fun packaging and the ingredient lists does intrigue me.

Lassic Creamy Mint Body Massage Milk

The Lassic Creamy Mint Body Massage Milk has a nice refreshing minty scent that is cooling like menthol. This body milk also doubles as a massage milk. This formula has various skin tightening ingredients such as caffeine and extracts from orange, lemon and bilberry. In addition, it includes the skin nourishing hyaluronic acid. The body milk is lightweight, non-sticky and has a slight cool and tingling sensation when applied to the skin, so would be the perfect body moisturiser for Summer. I actually really like this body milk and was a little unsure when I first read that it was mint scented. I was worried it’d smell like toothpaste but I actually quite enjoy this refreshing scent and the nice cooling feeling it has on my skin. It’s still winter here in Sydney so I’m saving this for use in Summer.
