A Cool Idea: The Cosmetics Fridge
Storing cosmetics products in hot, humid and 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 are eager to keep their food separate from their cosmetic storage ideas, making the cosmetics fridge a popular beauty buy in Asia. Check out these makeup refrigerators that have been specifically designed for this purpose.

The Amex Mishell makeup mini fridge measures 38 by 31 centimetres and is an adorable micro cosmetics fridge with a choice of decorative floral doors. This neat desktop makeup refrigerator incorporates advanced thermoelectric cooling technology, which keeps makeup from oxidising and crumbling. Its digital display allows you to monitor and adjust the temperature to the right level, making it one of the most advanced options for makeup preservation out there.

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.
