If you’re interested in the skincare fridge hype, here are the things to know before buying a skincare fridge.
I have to be honest; this search/research sent my anxiety through the roof. I knew I wanted to get a skincare fridge not only for the luxury feeling of cold products on my face but also for extending the life of my products.
There were many obstacles I had to go through to find the perfect fit, and I couldn’t be happier with the result.
Let’s jump into the things to know before buying a skincare fridge.
Know what you want to Store
A little bit of planning will save you time, money, and frustration. If you’re not sure of what you can and shouldn’t store in your refrigerator, you can find helpful tips in this post!
Be realistic about what you want/need to store in there so you can buy the right size and have things fit comfortably.
When I first started looking into these cute little fridges, I noticed two things: the dimensions of these fridges were small, they look big online, but once you see it in person, you’re left wondering what the hell you can fit in it (it’s super small)
The more popular ones are in the sizes 4L, 6L, and 10L, with one being a 12L.
All of the cute ones you see are probably a 4L. If you want something cute and don’t have much to store, they can work just fine.
Another thing to consider is the depth and ensuring you have enough room to reach behind everything without knocking all of your products over.
Price is one of the things to know before buying a skincare fridge! I was shocked when I saw how dam expensive these things were, not to mention how small they are! It seemed too costly to invest in, and I lost all interest.
Here are some tips while shopping for a skincare fridge
- If searching on Amazon, don’t type in Skincare Fridge- these are overly priced; type in a small fridge
- Think outside the box- look at refrigerators that are not explicitly meant for skincare and look into a second hand. I found mine on offer up, and its a red bull fridge, and I love it.
Consider the features you want your Skincare fridge to have
Knowing what you want your fridge to look like is pretty much half of the battle. While all skincare fridges share the same concept, they don’t all look alike. Some are more rounded, and you will pay more for popular colors I noticed. I fell in love with a fridge from vanity fair because it had a glass front and a handle.
Keep this close when shopping, so you don’t get derailed, trust me it is easy to jump down the rabbit hole!
The noise that these mini-fridges make is something I didn’t even think consider before purchasing! I have mine in my room next to my vanity, and while it’s not loud and annoying, it makes noise, and I still can hear it throughout the night.
If you’re a light sleeper, this is something to consider; you’ll end up throwing your fridge out of the window.
Knowing where to place it
Another thing we don’t consider is where we are going to set this mini-fridge. I originally wanted to put my fridge; I realized the plug outlet isn’t in an ideal location. So now, I have a vanity that is built around my skincare fridge. It’s an adjustment, but it works out, so I’m okay with it.
After doing some research, it’s recommended to keep your fridge at a temp between 55 and 62 degrees Fahrenheit. How much truth there is to this, I don’t know, but when it comes to these types of claims, I always say to each their own.
Overall Things To know Before buying a Skincare Fridge.
These are cute, fun to have, and will take your skincare experience to the next level. Now that I have one, I go back and forth on if I want to keep it or not because of the noise.
While its to early to see if there have been beneficial results from chilled skincare, I know my under-eye bags have been cut down to pretty much nothing!
