Refrigerating certain natural products can help to prolong their shelf-life and when cold products are applied to the skin, it can help to temporarily reduce facial puffiness. Plus, who doesn’t love a cold face mask, am I right?

Conveniently have access to your chilled products right where you need them

Cold constricts blood vessels,thereby reducing swelling and stops itching instantly
What kind of products can you put in your beauty fridge ?
You will finf below some examples of products which have advantages to be keep at low temperature in “skincare fridge”.
5 cosmetics to always store in a cool place
Fresh or homemade masks
Do you make your own cosmetics or do you swear by natural ingredients? Better make room for them in the fridge!
To retain their properties, natural vegetable oils must be kept away from light and heat. The refrigerator is therefore their best ally. However, be careful with coconut oil, which solidifies in contact with the cold.
Hydrolats and floral waters
As we have seen, placing them in the refrigerator allows them to have a tenfold freshness effect in the morning! Goodbye dark circles and dull complexion.
If there was only one left… True all-rounder in the cosmetics industry, aloe vera will be all the more pleasant to apply fresh in case of sunburn.
For those who use their nail polish every 36th of the month and discover that their nail polish has become as compact as a foundation, don’t panic. Placing them in a cool place will preserve their liquid texture. (This advice also applies to those who use their nail polish every month…).
If your bathroom is overflowing with cosmetics, here’s something to clutter it up even more. Popular with bloggers and youtube users, the beauty mini-fridge made its appearance on Instagram, where there are over 1,100 posts (accompanied by the hashtag #beautyfridge).
White, pastel pink or with stickers, the models with their vintage round curves are perfectly in line with the Marie Kondo trend… We’re willing to bet that some major cosmetic brands are already working on this trend and plan to release theirs…
What’s that for?
To keep certain homemade cosmetics made with fresh products, or certain products without preservatives (for example the fresh Lush masks, which can be kept for 28 days in the refrigerator).
Apart from these products with very specific natural formulas – which can also be stored very well in a normal fridge! – this is not of much use. At least that’s the opinion of New York dermatologist Howard Sobel, interviewed by Bustle.
If he recognizes a pleasant refreshing effect, especially in the summer when it is hot, allowing to decongest the face and to calm irritated skins, this specialist indicates that the conservation in the cold “will not make any in the properties and the benefits”.
How much does it cost?
The Anglo-Saxon media have been quick to make model selections for their readers, mainly orderable on Amazon – it costs from $38 to $100 (€34 to €89) depending on the HuffPost, or £36 to £81 for the Harpar Bazaar (€42 to €94).
And now several North American start-ups have just launched themselves on this ultra-niche market: candy pink make up fridge is priced at $79.99 and cosmetics fridge marbled effect at $119.99. In France, you can order mini-fridge models on Amazon (from €49.99) or Darty (from €54.99)…
