A Cool Idea: The Cosmetics Fridge

Is ice cool makeup on your radar? The cosmetics fridge, an ingenious invention inspired by Korean beauty trends, promises to keep your favorite makeup and skin care products fresh.

Storing cosmetics products in hot, sun-drenched environments can hasten curdling, ingredient separation and bacterial contamination. If you want to keep makeup fresh all day, storing cosmetics in the fridge is the usual course of action. But in Singapore and Seoul, women keep their food separate from their cosmetic storage ideas, which is why the cosmetics fridge is a popular beauty buy in the humid Asian continent. Check out these makeup refrigerators that have been specifically designed for this purpose.

Tips on how to keep makeup for long time

  • Ensure that your cosmetics storage temperature does not exceed 21°C. If it does, pop your products in a cosmetic refrigerator, and be sure to store makeup in the fridge during the summer months.
  • Seal caps and lids firmly in order to prevent oxidisation, evaporation and creaming of water-based products.
  • Skin creams containing preservatives and volatile active ingredients such as Vitamin C are notorious oxidisers. Keeping cosmetics in the fridge is a good way to increase their shelf life.
  • Clean compact brushes and sponges regularly with mild soap and water and protect them using disposable sheaths.
  • Prioritize oil-based skin products, eye creams, waterproof makeup and nail polishes in your cosmetics cooler.
  • If you’re wondering how long to keep makeup for, the timeframe will vary according to the type of product.
