If you’re a beauty lover, then you most likely have a big stash of skincare products lined up in your bathroom cabinet, on your bathroom counter, on top of your dresser, or even on your nightstand. Let’s face it — sometimes our little bottles of liquid gold end up being scattered everywhere. While no one is judging your organization skills (we swear), there’s actually a great solution for getting your favorite beauty products properly stored in one place: Enter the Cooluli microfridge.
Storing certain skincare products at a cooler temperature than the average room can be super beneficial. “A designated skincare fridge is a great way to keep your products active for a longer period of time after opening. Cooling the products helps inhibit bacterial and fungal growth once the product has been contaminated with fingers,” says board-certified dermatologist and founder of Visha Skincare, Dr. Purvisha Patel. “Once products get exposed to air, they also get oxidized — refrigerating slows down the oxidation process and keeps [them] from becoming inactive.”
According to Dr. Patel, water-based serums, lotions, and gels do especially well when refrigerated. “Cooling can also make products soothe [the skin] and feel better when using, especially on those with sensitive skin,” she adds. Other beauty products that can benefit from being stored in a fridge include vitamin C serums, retinoids, face masks (except clay-based ones), and basically anything with aloe vera as an ingredient. Even beauty products like nail polishes and perfumes can be preserved better in a fridge.
