Magnifying mirrors

Do you use one?  I put mine away for a while and recently took it back out.  Lordy, I shouldn’t have looked in it, 😆.

Definitely.  I've had a 20X swing-arm mirror attached to my bathroom wall for many years.  Couldn't be without it.   Even have a travel-sized magnifying mirror that I keep in my suitcase.

Me, too -- I use a 15x and keep the travel size in my suitcase!

Re: Magnifying mirrors

I have to use one!  Otherwise I can't see to apply a darn thing to my face.  I really hate it. Everything looks so horrible magnified, and then when I look in the regular mirror, I know I am not seeing things how they really look.  It's hard to get a true picture of what the reality is!

I tweeze my stray eyebrow hair every day so I don't look like Groucho Marx and yes, I use a 10x mag mirror. I wouldn't be without one.

Re: Magnifying mirrors

Use one that is regular on one size and 15x on the other. I want to see what everyone else is looking at all day long. Decades ago I had a magnified, lighted make-up mirror. Remember those? My little girl loved it more than I did.

@SilleeMee Where did you find 15X? I have never seen one, only 10X.

@CARMIE Same here, everyday. I told my kids if I end up in a nursing home they have to come and take care of my stray hairs.
