The biggest selling point of Rephr's system are the modular pieces — variously shaped containers that connect with cleverly placed magnets — which make the storage and organization of all my beauty products supremely customizable.

I havewhere I store the things I don't use often, and I have that I use to house new items and products that I'm testing. The rest of my makeup goes into the Rephr cubbies.
I've Been on Curology for 2 Years, and You Need to See My Face
And I was truly skeptical before this experiment.After two years of using Curology, I can say that this is my longest, most stable skincare relationship to date. I've been known to ghost, dump, and rebound quickly with all the other skincare products of my past, but my custom Curology formula? We're committed.

Finally getting my cosmetics in order was an ideal project to usher in spring and motivate me to bring that same organizational energy to the rest of my home and life as the seasonal transition occurs. Each of the individual components is $20, butright now, which means you can recreate my setup for $70.
