I previously had another 15x travel mirror from Floxite that folded up, but a wire connected batteries in the base to two lights in the top half, and years of folding finally snapped the wire. This version of the 15x travel mirror is better for a number of reasons - A) the battery is in the same side as the light, so opening and closing the unit won't break any wires; B) the light goes all the way around the mirror, so there are no shadows, even when holding tweezers at weird angles; and C) the light is less orangey than the other mirror. The mirrors are about the same size, even. This one is taller because of how the batteries are arranged, but it's flatter, so overall I'm fine with it. The downsides are that the lights are almost too bright early in the morning, I wish you could recline the mirror even more in the base, and the plastic attracts a lot of fingerprints. These are pretty minor quibbles though. So far, I'm pretty happy with this as a replacement and hope it lasts a while!
This mirror is very bright and is excellent for up close use. Like it has a cover that can be folded back and used as a stand for the mirror. The cover is good protection while traveling. Wish they would make it a little bigger. Overall the mirror is the best travel mirror I’ve found so far.
I have a larger countertop Floxite unit that I use daily. I was glad to find this brand for travel, and I have also given these as gifts. They have the right amount of magnification and the LED lights are very helpful. I will probably buy more for stocking stuffers.
When I received this, I was going to return it (the light practically blinded me). It is very bright (I use it about 3"-5" away from my face). The battery compartment is poorly designed (I have to have my husband open it for me, Aaargh. But I was going on a trip, so I used it. And now am very satisifed with it. Great travel size, opens easily, helped with my makeup for eyes & face. This works better than my previous lighted travel mirror.
I love this travel mirror. It is lighted and highly magnified, which suits me perfectly. It is harder to apply makeup as you age and your eyesight is not that great. This comes with a cover which rotates to be the stand. I use this mirror not just for travel, but I have found myself using it daily at home. I’m going to have to buy another for travel. I also may use these for presents.
