You say you like to keep up on all things beauty and skincare related, but I bet you haven't heard of this one: beauty refrigerators?
It's a big thing coming out of influencer circles: mini fridges that help your makeup and skincare products stay fresh. They are cute, sometimes pink, and generally start at $39.99.
But are they really worth it? Pop Sugar has gotten to the bottom of things, by going straight to the pros, and asking a skincare specialist.
The bottom line of skincare refrigerators:
- They are especially useful if you're a fan of clean beauty because given these products have no preservatives, they are harder to store and keep fresh.
- Serums like Vitamin C in particular can degrade quickly if not stored in a cool, dry place - and may even turn into nasty things like erythrulose, which can't be good for your piel. You'll enjoy it for much longer if you store in a fridge. This goes for your yerba mate toners and acai serums.
- Things like eye creams, rollers and masks don't require it but it helps create chilliness that drives out overnight puffiness.
The question is, should you give in to the insta-pressure and buy a beautiful skincare fridge - or just use your tried and true refrigerator? We'll leave that up to you - and your wallet.
