FYI: 5 Beauty Products That Are More Effective When Refrigerated



f you’ve ever wondered whether or not there’s any legitimacy to the mini skincare fridges that are all the rage on social media, we’re here to tell you that, yes, there is. To be fair, you definitely don’t need a separate refrigerator for your beauty products (though it does make a great gift). And there’s also not necessarily a pressing need to refrigerate products in general.
