    Very Informative read! Skincare Coolers or Fridge’s are absolutely essential these days! As an MUA, I find that temperatures and the way products are stored do play a major part in the way products may oxidize. Many natural and gel based products tend to evaporate, change form, consistency and smell when left in warmer climates for long periods of time. Masques, Facial Mists, Eye Creams and Cryo-Sticks are some of my favorite items to chill in the fridge. This is definitely a game changer for your “Self-Care” routines as well as adding to the shelf life of your products.

    This post is really awesome, thanks for sharing! I’m fairly new at keeping my products chilled but I have noticed that the cooling effect definitely helps soothe my dry skin and soaks into my skin quicker. I would like to try chilling my eye cream to de-puff tired eyes. It’s great to read up on useful tips like this!
