I LOVE this compact mirror and use it when travelling! My previous compact magnifying mirror was the standard size and had no lighting - and quite frankly was of limited use. The Fancii mirror is larger (but not too large) and actually makes makeup application easier. The 10x magnification is clear and not distorted - and ideal if your eyesight is fading (like mine)... The lighting is an added bonus - especially when staying in hotels with poorly lit rooms / bathrooms. Ideal for travelling as it fits into your toiletries bag easily. Highly recommended!
