Ever spent a fortune on a beauty product, only to find yourself lowkey devastated when it had the opposite effect of what you expected?

Trust us: Despite being aficionados at the beauty game, and having access to a trove of products and information, we editors at Shape feel you and have been there countless times. That's why we're determined to put that painful trial-and-error process in the past for good and curate the perfect toolkit containing top-rated hair, skin, and nail beauty tools just for you—all for $45.

Enter: The Shape Beauty Lab Box (Shop it! $44.99 + $5.95 shipping and handling, magazines.com).

The box, which contains 21 (mostly) full-sized products, is valued at over $560 (yep, you read that right!)—and includes several Shape Beauty Awards stars, including the cult-favorite Batiste Volumizing Dry Shampoo, a 2019 Shape Beauty Award winner, to combat residue and oil between showers without weighing down your locks.

You'll also find rave-reviewed TikTok stars like the BeautyStat Universal C Skin Refiner, one of Shape's 2021 Skin Award winners, whose hashtag #beautystat contains nearly 4.7 million views on the app. As one TikToker put it, the product had "done wonders for brightening and re-texturizing" his skin.

Here's a glimpse at the rest of the hydrating, soothing, toning (plus literally any other skin-, hair-, and nail-happy adjective you can think of) in the box:

  • Bella Spirit Self Tanning Bronzing Drops work with your favorite body lotion customize a gradual, natural-looking tan. And although the hue takes only three to four hours to develop, your color can last upwards of an entire week.
  • Bogavia Firming Body Serum is a lightweight, age-defying serum that improves your skin’s tone, texture, elasticity, and strength with every use. It contains a proprietary, plant-powered, skin-firming, and strengthening complex that pumps your skin with vegan hyaluronic acid to smooth over lines and wrinkles.
  • CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen Sheer Tint SPF 30’s all-mineral formula shields harmful UVA and UVB rays while giving your skin all-day hydration with a healthy, hydrating, sheer coverage glow.
  • Degree Apple & Gardenia Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant provides 48 hours of sweat and odor protection, so you can feel shower-clean all day. (Plus, the crisp apple scent, with a touch of gardenia, is bound to make you feel super-refreshed, too.)
  • FOAMIE Aloe You Very Much Shampoo Bar is good for both the environment and your hair — it’s 100 percent plastic-free and massages, cleanses, and nourishes your strands (with a fresh aloe vera scent) from root to end.
  • Fortify+ Protecting Facial Mist freshens your face with a burst of gentle hydration while simultaneously fighting off bacteria and germs. It’s even been shown to reduce the growth of certain microorganisms and bacteria for extended periods of time.

  • invisibobble Power in Crystal Clear is designed to tame your mane and maintain your hairstyle—even through a tough sweat sesh.
