The "Totoro 3D Jigsaw puzzle" is the best item in this box. it's sooooo cute :3

nomakenolife March 2017 - Sakura Theme

Hello and welcome to my newest nmnl review.
For some basic information about the subscription, click here.

Don't forget to check out my youtube channel. I did a little video there:

This months theme is "Sakura" and this is inside:

On the right you can see the "ICHIKAMI Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner travel set"
I really love this brand, it makes my hair feel great :)
The scent is fantastic, I am disappointed though, that it is only a travel size.
I found this set online for 3$.

The "sakura harenohi hand care gift pack" comes with a soap and hand cream. The scent is fantastic and reminds me of the sakura line of The Bodyshop.
I found this set online for about 6$.

On the bottom left you can see the "wayumeguri sakura bath salt".
It has a fantastic sakura scent and makes my skin feel great.
I found this for 2$ online. 

On the top is the "sakura hand towel & cleaning cloth".
It has a pretty design, but it is clearly made in china.
I found a similar design from this brand for only 2$.

On the right is the most expensive item: "gensen labo hydrating sea kelp toner".
 It's a great toner which works well with my sensitive skin.
I found this for about 10$ online.

Lastly the "Choosy lip masks" There were 2 different ones in each box. I've never tried these before, but I know that you can get them everywhere online. 
Both together are about 3$.

So, all in all this box is worth about 26$ - it's okay but I would have wished for original sized products.
 I hope for something better in the next box >.<

Next month's theme will be "Skincare Essentials".
Get 3$ off the first box with the code "skincare"

This was amazing, I really love the taste of matcha.
I found these online for 1$.

I found these for 0.50$.

nomkenolife Feb 2017 box

Link here ;)

Hello there :)
I've ordered the new subscription box from tokvo treat >.<
vou can find all infos about the box on mv "basic infos" page.

Let's start:
This is the very first box of nmnl ever published.
It costs 29.99$/month (incl. shipping) but you can use codes for your first box to get a discount.

and this was inside February's box:

Sailor Moon false eyelashes, you were able to get one of 4 designs. I got the Sailor Venus one. To be honest I would have wished for either Jupiter or Mercury because I like cold colours on me more, but these to suit me well.
They are very comfortable to wear, and have the sailor guardians colour on the outside. 
The look pretty natural and I am super happy to have them :)

The best part is that I also got the dolly wink eyelash glue. I love it so much. I am actually allergic against body glues (I can't even wear plasters), but this is just awesome.

The zawachin x noyl eyeshadow palette comes in 4 different shades. I got the one with orange inside. Which is just great us I also the orange lashes.
Here are all the colours.
 Pretty right?

The Hello Kitty facial masks comes with 8 plain white sheets. The hydrate my skin very well, what I like the best, is that the fluid doesn't go everywhere when wearing it :)

Then there is the sakura facial bar soap. I haven't tried it yet as I am still using some other face products, but the scent is divine.

Last but not least is the puchi animal hand cream. It comes in 3 scents/designs. I got the honey one. The scent is really strong and nice, and I love how I can chain it to my handbag.

So, what do you think about the nmnl box? Do you like it?
I can't wait for the next one :3


P.S. I ordered some more subscription boxes to compare. Stay tuned :)

Tokyo Treat - Feb 17

The February  Tokyo Treat box has the Theme "Valentine's Day".
I always get the premium box which includes most products, for more details about the subscription see "Basic info about subscription boxes".

This box included 13 snacks / candies + 1 DIY kit + 1 Drink + 1 special item.

I'll sort them in a way, so that you can see what you would have gotten in each package size^^
 Let's start :D


Strawberry Chocolate Covered Barley Puffs:
Forgot to take a picture sorry, but you can see the package above, it's the on the left second from the bottom. 
The taste was very strawberry like, I really enjoyed them :)

Tirol Choco - Strawberry Assortment:
They came in 3 different tastes: 
Tea - very fresh, tastes of green tea, biscuit inside, light strawberry taste
Smoothie - very fruity, has marshmallows inside
Mille-feuille: tastes just like a cake, biscuit and soft parts inside, my favourite of the three!

Strawberry Picola:
2 small packages inside, smells and tastes very much of  strawberry - extremely delicious

Peach Gumballs:
I didn't like these at all, they are very sour as soon as you bite inside, and when the sour taste is gone it tastes of nothing...

Mini Peach Ramune:
Very peachy taste, nice small bites, but nothing special...

Calbee Kataage Chips - Clam Soup Flavour:
these were extremely crispy but the taste was average...

Mini Asparagus Biscuits:
Very crispy, they have a slight burnt taste and just a bit of chocolate. I liked these a lot!

(+all above)

Strawberry Mousse DIY:
This came with pretty pictures to make it, and it was very easy! I only had to add some milk and put it in the fridge.
It had a very strawberry like taste and it was my favourite of all :D

Calpis Gummy Apple Flavour:
 very soft, liquidy inside, sugar coated - very delicious!

Harvest Cheese Cracker Sandwich:
strong scent and taste of cheese - even the biscuit part, inside the cheese cream is soft. Yummy!

Bourbon Petit Shrimp Crackers:
very light, strong shrimp taste, low on calories - loved them!

(+all above)

Strawberry Langue De Chat Cookie:
soft and very fruity - great!

Strawberry Chocolate Lollipops:
very strawberry like taste, loved them!

Japanese Apple Sparkling Soda:
great taste of apple, but in my opinion I could just mix apple juice and sparkling water to get the same effect

SPECIAL ITEM - Pocky Midi Strawberry Fromage:

buttery taste, more topping than biscuit stick, great strawberry taste - delicious :3

SPECIAL ITEM - AMUSE Japanese Lucky Charm:
 Came in 6 different designs, with a card you can wirte your wish on - very cute >.<

What would you like to try most?

A Neko Atsume Reusable Shopping bag:

It came in 2 colours and I got the yellow one. You can fold the big bag and store it in the little one. I already used it for my groceries shopping (it's material makes it easy to clean) and more than I had imagined fits inside.

This month's special;
Shinada Fumofumo-san Plush:

This month's special item was a very large plushie which barely fit into the box! It comes in 24 different styles and I am really happy with the pastel blue one I got :3
