Do You Need a Skincare Fridge? Here’s What’s in Mine + Why You May Need One!

do you need a makeup fridge? Here's what's in my cosmetics fridge and why you may want one too!

Friends, I bought a skincare fridge.

Say, what?!

Yup. I didn’t even intend to, really. I was on the hunt for a mini-fridge for my home office since it’s in a loft, and getting to the kitchen is a bit of a pain. So when I found this little one at Target for just $30 I snagged it right away.

It didn’t make it to my office. Instead, it found a neat little home tucked away behind my cabinets in the bathroom.

I’ve heard about getting a cosmetics fridge, skincare fridge, beauty fridge—whatever you wanna call it–for a while now. It’s a big Korean beauty trend and more and more skincare junkies are jumping on the wagon. I figured, why the heck not?! Here’s why everyone’s doing it, and why you may want to consider it, too.

More of a video person? I’m chatting all about it with Your Life Arizona in the video below!


Do You Need a Makeup Fridge?

The primary reason anyone gets a skincare fridge is to extend the life of your beauty products. Things like our precious vitamin C serums are highly volatile, and a dark place + cool temps helps prevent our serums and tonics from going bad, and can even extend their shelf life!

I primarily use my beauty fridge for skincare products, but you can use it for your makeup, too. Nail polish lasts longer when stored in a fridge, but I’ve never been keen on the idea of keeping it next to my eggs. If you aren’t either, a beauty fridge may be for you.

  1. I did know that cool products can reduce puffiness, but I had no idea refrigerating beauty products makes them lat longer! I’ve never heard of a cosmetics fridge, but now I think I need one! it would be so convenient for sheet masks, my facial rollers, and moisturizers!

  2. This is something I’ve been considering for quite some time. I know that there are face masks, nail polish, rollers, etc. that do best when kept cold. It would be so helpful to have that little space specifically set aside for my beauty products. Thanks for linking so many cute little fridges!

  3. What a good idea! I’m always worried about my perfumes and temperature changes in the closet where I store them. I’ll have to check out this makeup fridge!


  4. Oh no wayyy! I had no idea this was a thing, that’s really cool. My grandma used to always keep her nail polishes and moisturizers in their kitchen fridge and our whole family teased her for it. Turns out she was on to something haha! Thanks for sharing 🙂
