Honey Good discusses the best magnifying mirrors


My beauty tips have been well received, which led me to think that I’ve been remiss in mentioning the absolute, hands down, most important tip for looking gorgeous after 50… the best magnifying mirrors so that you can see what you’re doing, dear reader! I hope you get a chuckle over this tip and yet, at our age, you probably know that I’m very serious.

    I’m looking for a 10x vanity mirror, lighted, that doesn’t distort when your a foot away, or if your up close to it for tweezing. I have had dozens mailed to my house and I return them all. I know they are out there because I have one but it doesn’t light up. Mine is 20 years old and I love it but I need the light now. I read so much about mirrors and I disagree with a lot of what is said.

    • Susan "Honey" Good says:

      There aren’t any great mirrors, any longer. But for women with vision unlike ours these are good. You and I have to do the best we can. If you find the perfect mirror, please, please let me know and I will announce it to our women and acknowledge you. Thank you for sharing. Warmly, Honey

  2. Incorporating an audio ready to listen to clip of this article is well-received. Thank you for this list, will definitely share this write up to my mom. Best!

  3. Deborah Harrison says:

    I need a hand held Magnifying Makeup Mirror, have you seen that? Great post by the way.

  4. Nina says:

    Girls, I use Xiaomi Amiro. I advise you to buy this mirror because it has very good glass. https://reviews.gift/review/xiaomi-amiro

  5. Hillary says:

    I just found hand held magnifying mirrors at Bed Bath & Beyond. Just had laser cataract surgery and can’t see to put on eye makeup.

  6. Leslie says:

    Zadro makes the best 15 mag. mirror!

  7. Maisey R says:

    Would you comment on facial hair removers please?

    Olay made a great one but no longer does. What’s a great replacement. Self care methods only!

    What “appliance” works best? There is one advertised on tv but I think it’s just an electric shaver in a lipstick tube. Ads say you can use every day! That’s not what we ladies need. We need a hair remover not a shaver.

    What is safe, not creating more hair and easy to use?
    Please help!

      My girlfriend uses a little electric type shaver and loves it. The hair does not grow back thicker. Also, there is the old fashioned wax. I use to watch my girlfriend in college wax her face and legs. She had a tin of wax that she heated and a stick like the Doctor used to put on our tongue to see our throat. When it dried, she ripped off the wax. Two choices. I would go for #1!!! Warmly, Honey

  8. Michell Rogers says:

    I once had a Conair mirror it was a plug-in not battery operated and it was dual-sided and the magnified side was 80 times magnification I can now not find any that are above 20. What happened?
