Can't Find the Magnifying Mirror You Saw on the Site.

Posted by Debra on 29 April 2015

Hi everyone its Deb again with just a short post today on why you sometimes cannot find a magnifying mirror in the web store you saw previously and wanted to buy.
Just lately we have received calls from customers enquiring about a magnifying mirror they saw on the MyHealthandBeauty site last week or they were reading the blog post about a new model but can't find the mirror to buy.
The answer is when stock reaches Nil in the warehouse we take the mirror off the website until it comes back into stock. We do not want to inconvenience our customers by taking payments and then being advised there is no stock.  The mirrors will be put back online as soon as we have a fixed date the stock will be back in the warehouse. Sometimes the mirror will appear back on the site as soon as we have a fixed date of arrival. That date is messaged across the mirror. The less we can inconvenience our customers the better.

We also want you to know that we pack and post the same day as your order which generally means if Australia post is on track you should receive your parcel inside 3 or 4 days at the very worst. The team at myhealthandbeauty wants to ensure you have a good experience and making sure customers receive their purchase as fast as possible is part of the plan. Please don't leave it for two weeks before you call. Our systems can get to the issue very quickly why your purchase has not been received.

I have been putting together a block of articles which gives critical measurements on the wall mount magnifying mirror range to facilitate for those who want to mount their lighted magnifying mirrors inside a cabinent. I expect to put that information on the site over the coming week. I hope this will be useful information for many.

  I hope you have enjoyed this small piece of advice.

  Remember Keep smiling have fun and do the best

                    you can everyday.

                    Deb.

Buying A Suprise Magnifying Mirror For Your Wife?

Posted by Debra on 27 January 2015

Magnifying Mirror Mens range Hi everyone, well Christmas has come and gone very fast this year. We hope you all had a great time with your family. Interesting phone  enquires this year about how to choose a good mirror from the gentlemen of the household wishing to buy a beautiful gift for their partners.
  I can offer some information that may help the man of the house make a good choice if they decide to go it alone and surprise their partner with a magnifying mirror as a gift. Whilst the choice of finish for magnifying mirrors Chrome, Gold or Satin Nickel may first be considered, generally as a partner you will know what she likes if not have a look at what the tap or bathroom fixtures are in the house.

Choosing a style is the next consideration. Do you think she would like a bathroom vanity magnifying mirror or a wall mounted magnifying mirror, or makeup travel mirror. Is there enough room on the vanity for a free standing mirror? Do you have a good place in the bathroom to mount a wall mounted model? If it's a lighted magnifying mirror you are considering then is there a power point close by?

Finally when travelling have you heard your partner wish for a better mirror to put makeup on. Perhaps she may not want a permanent magnifying mirror in the bathroom at all and can be happy with the power suction models that can cover all aspects. There are many that have both a wall mounted model and a power suction that can be used for travel, or permanent.

The biggest issue is what magnification? That would be the number one question we receive. Realistically it does not matter what magnification your mirror is. It is only a matter of what you get used to. As a general guide line if your partner wears strong glasses or is a little more aged then the 8x or 10x models are the best. For the biggest part of our population a middle of the road arrangement that works is the 5x models. For those who don't like a lot of magnification then a 3x will do fine. The only variation here for all the magnifications are how far your face is away from the mirror before you get perfect focus.
After using the mirror for a week it will become as normal as looking in your large mirror in the bathroom.

Another question that gets raised is, are all double sided mirrors standard magnification (1x) on one side and magnified on the other? Yes all magnifying mirrors made have only one side magnified and the other is always standard.

The final decision is a lighted or non-lighted mirror.  A lighted mirror works best in a bathroom that does not have the best level of brightness in the room or the globes that light your bathroom are behind you. Lighting behind you throws a shadow on the face making it more difficult to get your makeup just right. The lighting in a magnifying mirror is meant only to light your face up and not the whole bathroom as some have suggested. If you choose a travel model then it is just a choice if you think lighting is needed or not. The trick with the power suction models is you attach them to any window while travelling and get natural light.

Well I hope this article is of some use to the gentlemen who wish to surprise their partners.

Remember to keep smiling, work on your 2015 plan and do your best.

Buying a Makeup Magnifying Mirror Online

Posted by Debra on 16 October 2014

Hi it's Debra again with Christmas coming very quickly or so it seems this year. If you're looking for a makeup magnifying mirror for yourself of even a gift for another member of the family we would love you to consider our range.
I wanted to give you some points to help make your online purchasing for a Makeup Magnifying mirror helpful and worry free. The market has been flooded with magnifying mirrors and we would love you to buy from us here at My Health and Beauty first.
It's important to us you do have a good experience buying online and I wanted to make sure you know how to look at all the information and make a good decision.

This hopefully will give you a better experience than what online buyers who have called us for advice of late.

In all fairness it seems that much of the dissatisfaction has come from customers who bought a "bargain" on EBay. We have noted also that whilst Fishpond looks to be an Australian website it mostly just represents American companies. With that in mind please read the fine print on this site as you will find that whatever the brand magnifying mirror you receive, it will be the American version. If it needs to be plugged in then it will not work on Australian power. Often on these sites there is a small disclaimer to say the mirror has passed all regulations in country of manufacture.

Our callers have said they used a travel adapter to get around the "funny plug" The mirror failed because you can't put 240 volts Australian power into 110 volt American, that's more the twice the voltage and a very easy way to get hurt.
You should also note that many of the sites you see online have their price set in US dollars and just lately it has become an expensive exercise. For example a US $89 mirror will cost $101.78 plus fees and charges. Not such a bargain after all.

I mentioned earlier about customers who bought from eBay which in some cases you can get a good deal. Enquiry levels on the phone and through the My Health and Beauty site lately have really jumped up regarding replacing a globe or broken magnifying mirror missing parts. We have been asked also what they could do after receiving an electric magnifying mirror with an American or English plug on the end. They found trying to get this sort of issue fixed there was almost nobody they could talk to for solving their problem.  In all cases we have tried our best to help, who knows they may come back to My Health and Beauty where our loyal customers don't have those issues. It might be a global village where you can now access lower prices, with that come less desirables in products and companies with no standards chasing a fast buck. Here in Australia we seem to be easy pickings.

One great tip I can give that really will help you avoid an online overseas purchase is Don't just look at the picture read all the information so you can make a better decision. If you can't see the plug then ring or email and ask if you don't see in the description what type of plug. What is the voltage? What size is it?
Of late we have seen many sales on the electric plug in LED mirrors from overseas and they look a great price it seems the LED light fails rather quickly. We have had a couple of hotel related stories where they purchased overseas had them installed and within a year all were thrown in the bin after the LED lighting failed.
My tips to help you not make a mistake are 

  • Don't buy a mirror by just looking at the image.
  • Read all the specifications, If electric is it made for Australia 240 volt. What sort of plug (3 pin)
  • Can you pick up the phone and talk to somebody. Preferably in Australia not overseas.
  • Can you exchange ?
  • Can you get replacements if you lose a little chrome nut or break the glass mirror?
  • Watch out for Australian or US dollar pricing.
  • If your mirror gets broken through careless freight handling make sure it is easy to get it replaced.

             I hope you have enjoyed this small piece of advice.  Remember Keep smiling have fun and do your best 

             Debra

10x Magnifying Mirror Tips

Posted by Debra on 9 October 2014

10x Magnifying mirrors one of the quandaries we receive on a weekly basis from prospective customers. Hi its Deb here and I wanted to give you information that may help you make your decision to buy your 10x magnifying mirror a little easier.

Of late we have had the gentleman of the house buy 10x mirrors for their wife often as a gift only to find she hates it. It’s too strong or too blurry are some of the issues raised.
Selecting the right magnification is a personal thing and can get confusing; it very much depends on what you want to do. Anything from just needing optimum clarity, seeing to insert contact lenses or even precise tweezing right through to a flawless makeup application the right magnification helps to get the job done.

Well that’s what I initially thought, having worked with all the different magnifying mirrors available here at My Health and Beauty. I’ve found that unless you have poor eyesight a 10x magnification can be very helpful when you take your glasses off. However regardless of the amount of magnification you may want or need it really is all a matter of just getting used to your mirror no matter the magnification.
We have many customers who try to match the magnification to their current eyesight situation. You will have your magnifying mirror for many years so choose wisely. We have customers who wear glasses and many that don’t that swear by their 10x mirror because that’s the degree of clarity or closeness if you like they desire.

When customers who call back and say the mirror looks blurry, my face looks funny or I can’t see then we know that they are not standing close enough to the mirror and they have not given their eyes enough time to adjust. Usually for a 10x mirror your face is around 4 inches or 100mm away from the surface.  If you are using a 10x magnifying mirror for the first time you need to allow for your eyes to adjust, if what you see is out of focus then move slowly closer  until you have perfect vision. If you still can’t get perfect focus the move your face away from the glass slowly.

At some point you will get perfect clear focus. It becomes easy to attend to anything on your skin, eyelashes or blend in your makeup.
When selecting a 10x magnifying mirror it comes down the space or location you have available. You may possibly want to take the mirror with you for example when you’re travelling. The MC449 can be setup on the vanity and folded down and put in the black velvet bag for travel whilst the PSC110 and the PSC210 can suction on to a tiled or mirror surface in second. Both will fold down and also make great travel necessities. The MC310 and the LEDT01 are made to fold flat and carry in your purse. Finally to have a fixed wall mount 10x in your bathroom then the JP120 does the job perfectly.   
So don’t be afraid of a 10x magnifying mirror embrace the close-up look you get and enjoy it.

I hope that will help you all. Christmas is coming really fast 

Remember keep smiling and do your best at all times.

Debra

Wall Mounted LED Magnifying mirrors on the way

Posted by Debra on 2 May 2014

Hi everyone it’s been a little too long since my last update, magnifying mirrors, led lighted mirrors and makeup and cosmetics mirrors we have seen so many new models and ideas since my last update. Our next shipment has two brand new to Australia LED wall mounted magnifying mirrors on board. When it gets a little closer I will give you a full update.
For today I’ve chosen to tell you about a fogless mirror for the men in our lives. Use it in the shower in complete safety.
The latest model and design for a fogless mirror has come from Zadro and uses an ingenious idea using water at the same temperature as the shower to stay fogless. This gives a perfect fogless mirror to use in the shower. Without a doubt this is a man’s mirror and perfect if you are one who likes to shave in the shower. It’s not easy to get a perfect shave but many don’t know that the only way to get that perfect shave is to shave in the shower!
Dermatologists all over the world recommend shaving, cleansing, and exfoliating skin in the shower to receive the best results. The heat and humidity from a hot shower opens pores and soften hair follicles. This allows razors to more easily and closely shave away the hair, while avoiding painful tugging, pulling, and razor burn – well assuming  you’re not using a blunt razor!.
The Z’Fogless™ Water Mirror is the perfect shower accessory to help you achieve the perfect shave, in the shower. A patented built-in reservoir heats the mirror surface, keeping it fogless even in the hottest and steamiest showers.  The ingénues way this mirror becomes fogless is, you slide the front part of the mirror off the cradle and fill the reservoir in the back with warm water from the running shower. This is how the mirror stays warm preventing it from fogging up. Zadro have thought of everything, there is no need to empty the reservoir because a very small drainage hole has been provided that allows the water to drain out over a 15 minutes
It’s common to not have a light in the ceiling above the shower so can make it a little dark to see. Zadro have built in 4 bright LED lights powered by 3 AA batteries that light up the entire mirror face, making shaving even easier, no matter your lighting situation.
If you do not like to use a magnifying mirror then this is the perfect tough model to use. There are no worries about cutting yourself if the mirror gets knocked down and falls to the floor it has been made to be unbreakable. It will not rust unlike the chrome or gold versions that people put in the shower cubicle.
A generous 15.5cm high by 13cm wide actual mirror surface gives plenty of size for you to see how well your shave is going, to attaché this unit to your shower Zadro have provided a handy mounting kit consisting of double sided tape and 3 suction cups and a small tube of silicone. 
Well I hope that good information for your man and I can’t wait to introduce you to our new models coming in June.

Remember to smile and have a great week.

Debra
