Hint: it's huge in Korea. This cute gadget has a very specific purpose in a very specific room of your home. Do you know what it's for?

It's a mini fridge for your makeup!

And we do mean mini, the dimensions are only about 10 inches cubed. So why would someone want to chill their cosmetics and skin care? Products, especially natural ones formulated without chemical preservatives, last longer in (mildly) cooler temperatures. The cold also helps keep bacteria from multiplying in your potions (which often happens in a hot, steamy bathroom). Some makeup fridges even come with UV lights meant to neutralize germs.

As we hinted, these are trendy in Korea where skincare is something of a national obsession so we can see how a mini fridge for the vanity might be convenient. We're not going to pretend that this very specialized product is for everyone, but if you have a lot of expensive cosmetics and creams, it might be worth it to invest.

Either way, good to know there are always more inventive ideas to discover.
