Monthly beauty boxes can be so much fun.  Who doesn’t love new surprises delivered to your door each month? Imagine if you could get a Japanese beauty box with unique products you can’t find easily. No Make No Life boxes do just that.  They are monthly Japanese beauty boxes full of all kinds of cool new products for you to try.

About No Make No Life

“Nomakenolife” is a popular phrase in Japan.  It is used by people that believe makeup is essential to their lives.  Well, who can argue with that?  The goal of No Make No Life is to deliver high quality and unique Japanese cosmetics in a convenient monthly subscription.

They have in-house beauty consultants searching for the best products to include in the boxes.  These products will help you improve your beauty routine.  Hey, I can use help with my routine so I am in.


The boxes come in one size and contain 5-7 full sized beauty products.  The items are high quality and from six different categories including skin, hair, makeup, body, bath, and tools.

Delivery is free worldwide to over 120 different countries. Once your order is placed your box ships immediately and will arrive between the 20th and 28th of the following month.  That is great considering they have to travel long distances.


There are many pricing plans to chose from.  If you just want to do 1 month at a time it is $29.99 a month which is a recurring price.  If you know you love it and want to do longer plans, there is a recurring 3 mos plan at $29, 6 months at $28.33 and a yearly plan at $27.50.


Ok so now that we have all the background, let’s talk about the cool products.  You can go to their site to see the products in previous boxes.  This helps give you an idea of what to expect.

My box came with some unique items. Now, remember these are Japanese items so the writing on the package is often not in English.  Luckily you can figure out what they are.  I got 7 full sized items which included:

Mineral face wash

Hand care gift set

Toner/astringent type product

Shampoo/conditioner set

Bath beads

2 Lip packs including peach and gold pearl

I was so excited to dig into these fun new products!

Final Thoughts

After trying the products I definitely had some favorites.  I really liked the mineral wash and the hand lotion.  The shampoo and conditioner were pretty good.  I like a lot of moisture as my hair can get frizzy. These products were good but not strong enough for my hair.  The lip packs were different.  They are like a lip hydrogel.  I have never used one before and I liked it.  My lips were very soft after using them.

Overall, I really enjoyed the box.  It was fun trying new things and I learned all about lip gels which was great.  This is definitely a beauty box worth investigating especially if you want to try new things.  I enjoyed trying to figure out what the products did and seeing the results.  It definitely shook up my beauty routine.
