Aldi is the master of selling the kind of products and gadgets we didn't know we needed. And the German retailer has done it again, with this Stylepro 4 Litre Skincare and Beauty Fridge.

We know that everyone is super conscious of the cost of living crisis, but this mini fridge will ultimately save you money.

And if, like us, your normal refrigerator is packed full of a week's worth of food shopping with barely a nook left for anything else let alone your collection of skincare, this will come in really handy, not to mention be more hygenic.

You might think "but surely I don't need to refrigerate my beauty products?" We hear you - we thought the same.

According to the experts at Beauty Bay, though, doing this can actually can extend the lifespan or increase the efficacy of many of your products.

If you're a fan of natural skincare, for example, those products don't have preservatives, so keeping them in the fridge is a must to ward off bacteria growth.

Any depuffing products or tools you own will also work way better if they're kept chilled, thus increasing their efficacy and giving you better value for money.

Anything with active ingredients - for example, Vitamin C, benzoyl peroxide, and retinol - can be weakened or ruined by being exposed to heat or light as they're unstable ingredients. So popping these products in the fridge will protect them from breaking down.

Let's not forget that the weather is still warm, so any facial toners or spritzes you have will feel amazing to use on your face when they're chilled.

The rule of thumb, according to Beauty Bay, is "if it’s gel-textured and/or water-based then a product will benefit from refrigeration."

Why we rate it

This table-top size mini fridge will keep all your fave products at optimum temperature (it cools at 20°C below room temperature) to keep them fresh and free from bacteria growth or any danger of breaking down.

It's small enough to keep in your bedroom if you want, or else it won't take up much room in your kitchen or wherever you decide to keep it. (The dimensions are: approximately external: 19 x 27 x 27.5cm, and internal: 13.5 x 14 x 20cm and the cord is 100cm long).

The rose-gold detailing adds a stylish edge to the product so it'll look good no matter where it is in your home.

Another bonus? It has a dual temperature mode which means you can warm up heat packs as well.

Not to mention that it has built-in noise reduction so if you do decide to keep it in your boudoir, it won't keep you awake at night.

Plus, we've done some price comparison and Aldi is selling the Stylepro Fridge for £15 less than other retailers, the same fridge costs £54.99 from LookFantastic, £54 from Argos and £55 from Next at the moment, so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else.

Thanks, Aldi, for another genius, affordable product that'll help save us money in the long term.
