Our team is obsessed with these 21 skin, hair and nail tools from the fashion beauty lab’s box.
Have you ever spent a fortune on a beauty product and ended up being devastated when it had the opposite effect to what you expected?
Trust us: Although we are beauty game aficionados, and have access to a wealth of products and information, we Shape editors feel you and have been there countless times. That’s why we’re determined to leave this painful trial and error process forever and select the perfect tool kit containing the best hair, skin and nail beauty tools just for you – all for $45.
Enter: The Shape Beauty Lab Box (buy, $44.99 + $5.95, shipping and handling, magazines.com).
The box, which contains 21 (mostly) full-size products, is valued at over $560 (yes, you read that right!) – and includes several Shape Beauty award stars, including favorite Batiste Volumizing Dry Shampoo, a Shape 2019 Beauty Award Winner, to combat residues and oil between showers without weighing your hair down.
You’ll also find critically acclaimed TikTok stars like BeautyStat Universal C Skin Refiner, one of Shape’s Skin 2021 award winners, whose hashtag #beautystat has nearly 4.7 million in-app views. As one TikToker put it, the product “has done wonders in lightening and re-texturing” your skin.
Here’s a glimpse of the rest of the moisturizing, soothing, toning (plus literally any other skin, hair, and nail adjective you can think of) in the box:
- Bella Spirit self tanning tanning drops work with your favorite body lotion, customizing a gradual, natural-looking tan. And while the hue only takes three to four hours to develop, its color can last for more than a full week.
- Bogavia Firming Body Serum is a lightweight, anti-aging serum that improves your skin’s tone, texture, elasticity and strength with every use. It contains a proprietary, plant-powered, firming and strengthening complex that pumps your skin with vegan hyaluronic acid to smooth lines and wrinkles.
- Wax Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen Sheer Tint The all-mineral formula of SPF 30 protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays while giving your skin all-day hydration with a healthy, moisturizing and clear covering glow.
- Apple & Gardenia Grade Antiperspirant Deodorant in dry spray provides 48 hours of protection against sweat and odors, so you can feel clean in the shower all day. (Plus, the crispy apple aroma, with a hint of gardenia, is sure to make you feel super refreshed too.)
- FOAMIE Aloe You Very Much shampoo bar is good for the environment and hair – it’s 100% plastic free and massages, cleans and nourishes your strands (with a fresh aloe vera scent) from root to tip.
- Fortify + Protecting Facial Mist refreshes your face with a burst of gentle hydration, while simultaneously fighting bacteria and germs. It has been shown to reduce the growth of certain microorganisms and bacteria for long periods of time.

- invisibobble Power in Crystal Clear is designed to tame your mane and maintain your hairstyle – even during a tough sweaty sweater.

- SeneGence ShadowSense in Bella Cream and the velvety and velvety cream powder eyeshadows in Bella Cream and Slipper can be used in a variety of ways: alone, combined, used as an eyeliner or blush, or blended together to create a whole new shade.
