Beauty Products That Need Refrigeration

The Coolest Beauty Products Ever (No, Really.)

For years, the aesthetic elite has been refrigerating eye creams and gels, and not just to save room in their medicine cabinets: the cold temperature is said to de-puff by contracting the tissue around the eyes, plus it feels better going on. According to Korean company EUPA, which makes a special cosmetics refrigerator, all products should be stored between 10 to 14 degrees (Celsius, presumably, which is 50 degrees Fahrenheit). Some people keep nail polish in the refrigerator, but according to "Cosmetics Cop" Paula Begoun, "Condensation and cold negatively affect nail polish, making it too thick to use reliably."

So while you shouldn't go hungry to make shelf space for your products, certain things, like melty lip glosses, mineral water sprays (genius to bring to the beach), aloe and other redness relieving gels (to soothe sunburns, rosacea, etc.) and certain organic and natural products, like Lush's face masks, are best served — er, slathered — cold. Just make sure your roommate/ significant other/ babysitter/ kids know what's edible and what's not.

I do this with most of my masks. Especially the hydrating ones. I like to keep eye cream in the fridge too, along with body splashes and perfumes. Works for me.

LUSH masks always go in the fridge - but other than that, I haven't really had a problem with melted makeup. I actually have the opposite problem with my concealer sometimes, trying to get it to warm up slightly so it goes on smoother!

I do this all the time! Especially when I leave a lip blam in my car when its 100+ degrees outside. I pop it in the fridge for a few hours & it's good as new. My hubby always looks at me crazy when he opens the fridge and sees a lotion or spray in there :)
