Nomakenolife September Box!

Hi friends! Happy October! I didn’t get the chance to blog about this in September but I wanted to show you all the items I received in my September Nomakenolife box!

Here are all the adorable items! :)

Here’s a photo of all the cute items! There was a solid variety this month! Eyeliner, eyeshadow, eyelashes, lip gloss, a face and neck mask, and a hair treatment! Whoo! For this review, I’ll be explaining the items and packaging since they’re all in Japanese! Enjoy!

The first item is Delicious Lip Cream. The two scents that were offered in September were chocolate mint or ramune soda. This is the ramune soda scent.

I personally love this mild soda scent. This lip cream contains olive oil, beeswax, she’s butter, jojoba seed, and macadamia nut oil for extra moisturizing qualities.

This lip gloss shows that it was made in Japan and has the company phone number.

The design has two little ramune sodas on the label and is the same size as the usual lip glosses.

Here’s a quick shot of the actual gloss. It doesn’t have a colored tint to it and goes on very smooth.

Look.At.How.Cute.This.Is! I adore this eyeshadow duo! The two colors offered were green (kiwi) and blue (blueberry). Yes, they are scented!

The back states that this product was made in China. It most likely means that it was tested on animals. 😦

Out of the packaging, this is so cute. It’s a hard plastic that has a locking clasp on it.

The bottom of the bean has that it was made in China and that Jelly Belly actually regulated this product.

The little bean has a nice mirror on the lid and has two shimmery shadows. You could actually make a subtle smoky look with this guy. I do have swatches of these two shades at the end of the post!

Holy lashes!! These are from the popular Japanese brand, Rosy Rosa. These eyelashes are a mix of black and brown nylon hairs and are okay for daily wear. It states that you shouldn’t use mascara or an eyelash curler if you intend to re-wear them. #bacteriaawareness.

How-to apply these beauties: remove the lashes from their casing and re-size them to fit your eyes. Next, apply lash glue to the eyelash strip and place the strip to your eyelid, making sure it goes toward the outer corners. Finally, let the glue dry.

This is the S-Labo Face and Neck Care Mask. The mask claims to reverse sagging skin. It is a lifting mask that helps moisturize. The mask has Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide and a handful of plant extracts.

The steps are shown in pictures at the top. First, make sure to clean your face. Apply the mask to your face and neck. This mask has ear loops! You wanna hook the loops on the face and neck section over your ears! Woah! And then keep this on for 15 minutes and then remove.

This next product… I’m so in love with. This is the Ayurbio Damaged Hair Mask! This mask promises to fix your damaged hair and leaves behind a subtle apple scent. The mask is sulfate-free, has over 38 botanical extracts (apple stem cells), raw keratin, 16 types of amino acids, collagen, Ceramide, and honey!

After washing your hair, make sure to wring out the excess water. Next, take some of mask and coat your hair in it. After two minutes or so, rinse out the mask with warm water. Please try this. My hair has been so much healthier!

The last product is Cezanne Easy Eyeliner. It has a subtle and simple packaging.

The back states that this eyeliner is brown, has a batch code and the barcode.

This eyeliner is super tiny. And easy to lose. Trust me on that one haha.

This eyeliner has an elliptical shape so you can control the size and width of their lines. It is also retractable.

The next shot is a picture of all the swatchable items! There’s the eyeliner and the eyeshadow! Enjoy!

The eyeliner is a dark brown shade and very creamy. The eyeshadows are a light shimmery green and a shimmery olive green that both smell like kiwi.

That’s all for last month’s box! Get ready for more updates in October! Xo!

Nomakenolife August 2017 Box!

Hi readers! I apologize for my lack of updates this week. School starts for the little and I had a lot of things to prepare and get ready for. I also have another job other than running this blog so I’ve been loving on this pink cloud of happiness because I love it.

Kinda feeling like Lakitu. Nerdy yet happily floating by with waves of anxiety. 😂😂😂

Also, I’m not sure if you all heard but Beautycon no longer offers their subscription box service so I no longer will be posting about those :/ I always enjoyed those boxes and thought it was worth the money. Anyways, this month’s Nomakenolife subscription box features skin-nourishing soap, awesome smelling lotion, a toothbrush(???), purple eyeliner, and Rune Naito sheet masks. I’ll never complain about receiving too many skincare items because I have sensitive skin and I love keeping my skin clear and healthy. As usual, I have a front and back description of each item and any swatches that are necessary. Enjoy!

I set up all the items from this month in the box for you all! As you can see, all the items are full-size 🙂

And here they are all spread out on my body pillow. I added the booklet that comes with each box to give some detail on the products you received this month.

The first item this month is a toothbrush. I was curious yet confused as to why this was included in the box. Also, I just recently bought a toothbrush so my enthusiasm was a bit low. This is the Candy Faceline Massage Toothbrush.

This toothbrush was created with dentists to not only clean your teeth but massages your mouth with the ball on the other side of the toothbrush. The ball massages your laugh lines and you can use it to massage your lips.

The second item are the Rune Naito Rune Girl Face Masks. Rune Naito is considered one of the fathers of the modern “kawaii” movement. His artwork is inspired by looks from the 1960s.

These masks were assembled in Japan but made in Korea. To use these masks, you first clean your face and apply toner. Next, use a warm cloth to open your pores. After that, take a mask out of the package and leave on your face for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes pass, press the serum on your face and neck.

You get two masks in this pack. Both masks are a moisturizing masks that aid dry skin.

The third item is a tofu soap by Hada Bijin. This soap contains soybean extract and bittern which will help moisturize skin. The addition of apricot seed, yuzu fruit extract, and polyglutamic acid aid in additional moisture.

The soap comes in a basket that makes the perfect soap dish and it includes a foaming net that helps create lather. I’m really interested in this item. 🙂

Next, we have the Lassic Creamy Mint Body Massage Milk. I’ve been using this since my box arrived. I love the fresh scent and how light this milk is. This product has caffiene and orange, lemon, and bilberry fruit extracts to tighten the skin.

This body milk also has Hyaluronic Acid for its nourishing properties. This is a non-sticky and lightweight formula that makes you… tingly.

The last item is a Coupy-Design Gel Eyeliner by Decora Girl. This company is known throughout Japan as a colored plastic pencil maker that has stylish packaging and gorgeous colors.

This eyeliner has a waterproof formula, that is soft and precise in application. The eyeliner has ten moisturizing ingredients to make your looks look fresh throughout the day.

Please note that this eyeliner is non-retractable so only twist a small amount at a time.

Here is a swatch of the eyeliner for you all. I love how pigmented this shade of purple is and the description was correct in saying that it is smooth and very easy to apply.

Okay friends! There is my small summary of all the items I received in my Nomakenolife August box! I hope you enjoyed it! Xo

Evercos Ginseng Face Mask! 

It’s been a while since I did a face mask for you all so I decided to do the Evercos Ginseng Face Mask! This was given to me as a gift from my fiancee’s mom! Thanks, Cheri! What’s really awesome about it is that it is a Korean mask! 

Here is the front! The type is all in Korean with a picture of ginseng on the top corner.
Here is the back of the mask! There are instructions in English but the majority are in Korean.
Step One: Make sure to wash and tone your face!
Here is the mask out of the package! It was shocked with how earthy it smelled! Typically face masks smell floral and pretty. This one is very earthy and woodsy. I like it.
All you have to do with this one is take it out of the package and smooth it on your face as much as you can. Sorry for the facial expression, it’s hard to look happy or not like the invisible man in bandages. Lol
It says to keep on your face anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes. I kept mine on for 20.
Oooo after 20 minutes, peel off your face! Whee!

After you remove the mask, make sure to massage the essence into your skin. In the picture my skin does look clearer. I used this mask two hours ago and my face isn’t sticky like after most formulas and it feels moisturized.

Okay! That’s it for this mask! I did like this one and it did make my skin feel nice. I’m not going to go crazy and rave about it since it did the job but didn’t make my skin completely rejuvenated.
