These Are Editors’ Fave Products from the $35 Shape Beauty Lab Box
Shape Beauty Lab Box
What happens when editors curate a box with their favorite beauty products of everything they've tested? It quickly goes out of stock. At least that's what happened when the Shape Beauty Lab Box first launched in partnership with Swearby, a word-of-mouth platform for the products that women honestly swear by. (See more editor and consumer reviews on swearby.com.)
But if you missed your first chance to snap up the box, you can redeem yourself. The Shape Beauty Lab Box (Buy It, $35, magazines.com) is now back in stock, so you can get in on all the products we can't shut up about. Did I mention it includes 15 full-size products — worth $300 — for $35? If that alone doesn't have you buying multiple, read why some of the products made the cut, straight from the editors' mouths.
Nair Leg Mask In Even & Smooth with Raw Shea Butter
"I evangelize about this product so much, several of my coworkers (who also try their fair share of beauty samples) have said they want to buy it. It's a cross between a hair removal cream and a moisturizing mask, so you're taking the hair off your legs while treating your skin to shea butter and soothing clay. It's effective, doesn't sting at all, and doesn't leave my legs feeling dried out and crusty. I've completely stopped shaving my legs."
–Renee Cherry, digital staff writer
ChapStick Classic Cherry
"I've been using this lip balm for years! It keeps my lips from flaking as the weather gets colder and the nostalgic cherry scent brings back memories of high school (in the best way)."
–Erin Reimel, beauty and wellness editor
Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair 20% Vitamin C Serum
"Vitamin C is one of the best, most active skin-care ingredients available, and something I apply every single day to help brighten my skin tone, reduce dark spots, and smooth uneven texture. I absolutely love that each of these biodegradable capsules contains a fresh dose of the optimal amount of vitamin C for skin to absorb and retain."
–Kate Sandoval Box, beauty director
SeneGence LipSense Lip Trio
"Whenever I want to feel pulled together, I put on a bold lip. But when I'm wearing a protective face mask, I don't want to end up with lipstick smeared all over my face. This is the solution: I apply this classic long-lasting liquid lipstick in the morning and it stays on until I remove it at night. Plus, it feels comfortable all day long — no dry lips here!"
Evolved by Nature This Is Gel Hand Sanitizer
"At this point, we all know just how drying hand sanitizer can be to the skin, not to mention the lingering stickiness or too-strong scent. But this formula is different: It glides across my hands and leaves my skin softer than it was before. It contains 70 percent alcohol (to kill 99.99 percent of bacteria) and pure silk, which is what makes hands feel so, well, silky. I never thought I'd say this about a hand sanitizer, but it's downright luxurious."
Cetaphil Soothing Gel Cream with Aloe
"This lotion is so light that I can smooth it on post-workout still-warm skin and not end up with a goopy mess. It feels refreshing, soaks in fast, and then keeps skin hydrated all day long. Plus, it's especially wonderful for irritated, over-exposed, or sensitive skin."
