I received this mirror for a Christmas present from my husband. We live in a small-ish house with one bathroom, if I am putting on my make-up in the bathroom (where the best light is) someone always has to get in there. (There are 4 of us.) So, I was looking for a portable mirror that would light up so I could be virtually anywhere in the house and make myself pretty!
When I first saw this mirror I wasn't sure it was what I wanted. I was invisioning one of the "big" mirrors with the sides that flip out and light up...and this one is a round mirror with an "internal" light that goes around the perimeter of the mirror and then the entire mirror sits on a pedestal stand. So, I wasn't sure if it would offer enough light to meet my needs.
I am glad to say that it works great! The "small" size is just what I need...it's easy to carry around from room to room if need be AND it can run on batteries or plug into the wall.
As and added bonus, it flips around so I can see my face at a 5X magnification! Scary? YES! Necessary? ABSOLUTELY!! Now I can see all those pesky stray eyebrow hairs and pluck away with confidence.
