Just a quick question for you — what do you think about eye cream in the fridge? A cool treat for sore (allergy irritated) eyes? Or too cold for such sensitive skin around the eyes?
I’ve used cool tea bags before, but keeping my eye cream in the fridge might be a fight with my roommates – there are five of us after all, and fridge real estate is precious. I’m curious to know if it is worth my trouble or not.
Great question, Lissa! You can find my eye cream in the fridge (though I don’t have to fight with roomies for space). Not only does it feel great going on – especially if you have allergy-irritated eyes – but the cool temperature helps to de-puff swollen skin. As a bonus, try keeping your toner and regular face cream in the fridge too. This will help alleviate your entire face from “puffdom” the morning after a particularly dehydrating night out on the town.
If space is an issue, try picking up smaller tubs, bottles or atomizers (you can find these in the travel-size section of Target or Wal-Mart), and scoop your products into them using a spatula or spoon to avoid contamination from bacteria on your hands.
