Skincare Fridge: Do you need one?
Are you a skincare junkie? You’ve probably encountered mini fridges (a.k.a skincare fridge) as you browse through the popular social media influencers’ feeds or saw it from some of the beauty magazines or blogs. Perhaps you have already thought of getting one for yourself soon? Because why not?
For those who missed the hype, a skincare fridge is a cute, pastel-coloured miniature and portable version of your regular fridge, yet its sole purpose is to store and keep your skincare products chilled. From a budgeting viewpoint, having a skincare fridge is not an absolute necessity. It is true! But, how come it is popular and a hot topic? Can we say that it is just a trend?
Most skincare products are designed to last at room temperature unless the dermatologist or the brand itself advises keeping your skincare products within a specific temperature. If you enjoy the cool effect from chilled serums and other liquid-based skincare products, this is how the skincare fridge comes in.
What to Put Inside a Skincare Fridge?
There are no rules on what to put inside your skincare fridge. But to give you an idea, sheet masks, eye masks, face mist, serums, creams, jade rollers, and gua sha tools are some of the skincare products you can put inside it.

Keeping them cool will make it more enjoyable and refreshing. It also adds a depuffing benefit for your skin. If you have baby milk, supplement, and medication that needs to be refrigerated, this fridge can be handy as well.
Keeping your skincare products from your edible items is definitely sanitary since your kitchen refrigerator is for food. For sure, no one wants their skincare products to be smelling like your frozen meat and condiments or your edibles catching the smell of your favourite serum and cream. Nasty, right?
However, if you need temporary storage for beverages during road trips or camping, the beauty fridge can do this job too. Thanks to the additional travel plug, which is compatible with your car outlet.
