Travel lighted magnifying mirrors can be a lifesaver when you are away from home. Here at My Health and Beauty we are always on the lookout for a mirror that can be used in any circumstance. The Zadro Lighted compact comes very close.
Whilst small enough to fit in your handbag it also makes a great travel partner with its unique fold out system so you can use two mirrors at once and vary the halo lighting if you can’t see because the light level is low.
The LEDTO1 can be held in the hand or sat on a flat surface while you make those last minute touchups. The generous mirror size of 3 1/2 inches or 9cm makes it a whole lot easier than the traditional compacts. When set in the upright position for maximum usage this travel lighted magnifying mirror stands 11 ½ inches or 29cm high.
The duel mirror arrangement have a 10x and a 1x magnification allowing close up work or a quick glance overall. Of course this type of magnifying mirror may not suit everybody as some want a bigger size mirror, less magnification, do not need the lighting. If I may draw your attention to 4 other models in the travel line up. Our non-lighted MC229 model is double sided 7x and 1x magnification with a large 12.5cm diameter mirror on a fully adjustable stand.
This 7x magnifying mirror has a gold and chrome finish folds down flat for travel and has its own black velvet travel pouch. The MC449 magnifying mirror is similar in many aspects and has the bigger 10x and 1x magnification folds down flat and has the black velvet pouch also.
If you are looking for something that is nice and small does not need to be lighted and will fit in your handbag nicely then our MC310 should be perfect for you. It is a double sided beauty mirror and it does have a fully adjustable fold out chrome stand. The glass diameter on this mirror is just 7.5cm in diameter so it will even fit nicely in your purse.
Feedback from customers on the Zadro power suction mirror has been excellent. Even to the point people buy them for their friends as presents. Put one on your mirror at home and it won’t take long for your whole family to be found looking in the mirror. In fact I take mine to the gym so I can go straight to work after the gym. It sticks to any surface and just a small twist on the knob and it comes off easy. Being a square acrylic it just has that look about that makes everybody want one.
Single sided with 10x magnification – I do get people who want to see what it’s like when I put it on the mirror in the gym afterwards the comments are “I have to get one of those”.
So that’s just a quick rap on our travel models, I hope you can use that information. Right now I am looking forward to the new wall mounted square rectangle lighted mirrors from Jerdon. These will be very practical and look great in those new modern bathrooms as square seems to be the latest rage.
Its been a busy week say smile for now and I be in touch again soon.

How did you find our My Health and Beauty online shop to buy your magnifying mirror? Hi it’s Deb with a few helpful points for our customers who raised the issue there are some many shops online and they get confused about what’s on offer and where to buy.
Wall mount mirror or wall mount mirror with lights, beauty mirror or makeup mirror these are just some of the enquiries you as the potential customer will put into Google when looking for your makeup mirror of choice. We do agree it can be a little frustrating. Did you know that a listing from ITunes comes with makeup mirror? It relates to a song that has makeup mirror in the lyrics.
Each different enquiry will bring up an entirely different set of results with a large range of pages with stores that relate to your enquiry. Within that search you will find stores all over the world that sell the mirror you’re looking for. It’s not helpful when the ideal mirror comes on your screen only to find the store is based in Ecuador, France or United States. The price looks great and the freight well that’s another nasty issue you find out on checkout assuming the country in question will post internationally anyway. I have already spoken about the perils of buying a makeup mirror with lights internationally go to my previous post .
There is an easier way to save yourself all the frustration by looking at the web address in the top line on your screen. Make sure in the address line you can see .com.au.
For example our web address will look like this - http://www.myhealthandbeauty.com.au/ notice the .com.au on the end. A site from the United States will look like this - http://jerdonstyle.com/ notice there is no .au
If you do not see .com.au it highly likely you are dealing with an International supplier of the beauty mirror you desire. However you still have to be careful as some US supply companies register an Australian online address stores like Fishpond supply US based product which does not operate in Australia.
Australian suppliers carry the best well known overseas product and in My Health and Beauty’s case we are the agent in Australia for the Jerdon and Zadro magnifying mirrors.
Hopefully those couple of points will answer your enquires our phone lines have been running hot with these issues.
Our next shipment will have the Jerdon wall mount LED lighted rectangle mirror. This is the first time Jerdon have manufactured a lighted LED rectangle magnifying mirror so it is the latest in design and looks fantastic, showing style and class and great for today’s modern bathrooms. These will go on the site as soon as we know our shipment is only a week away so be on the look out.
Hope you all have a great week
Remember keep smiling,

Beauty Mirror or Beauty Mirror with Lights is the first thing many put into Google when searching for a magnifying mirror that is just right for you.
Hi it’s Debra with information that will help make your choice easier. The new look My Health and Beauty online store now has a number you can call if you need help with your decision.
It’s always very difficult to buy online when you can only make a choice by the picture you see.
Questions like I wear glasses and will 5 time magnifications be enough?, Will the mirror fit inside a cabinet?, I just want to put my mirror on the wall just like the hotels do?, Is the light in the LED mirrors white or can I get yellow LED?, Can I put this mirror in the shower? I can’t make the light in my mirror work how do I do that?
Now it’s easy -just call the number is on the top of the home page of the shop. Try doing that with an eBay purchase or many of the other companies that masquerade as an Australian company.
Across the Christmas New Year period we received many enquiries as those who bought beauty mirrors with lights have found out they have received a US mirror. Generally they tell us it doesn’t work – or can they get a light globe as the other one “blew up”. Unfortunately there are many online companies that sell the American version beauty mirrors with lights that are only 110 volt. Added to that it’s now become very difficult to buy a transformer that will make the mirror work with 110volt.
It can be very disappointing to have this happen. I have just 3 tips how you can prevent or at least help out if you have inadvertently purchased the wrong beauty mirror.
If you do buy through EBay then make sure you scroll down the left side of the page until you see the Item Location heading under that you must tick Australia Only. EBay have it set on a sneaky default that makes you think it’s all Australian when in fact it’s mostly USA and Asian ebayers.
Beware of drop shippers like Fishpond you will get mostly overseas product.
If you have received a beauty mirror from overseas and it does not work you should notify PayPal first this will hold the payment up and the supplier has to respond to solve the issue.
If you have received a beauty mirror with lights from overseas through eBay and it does not work be sure to email EBay who are very helpful and will do anything to rid their site of these problem sellers.
Finally for those searching the My Health and Beauty site for a specific beauty mirror that you might have seen previously. Do not worry MHB does not sell what we do not have. Any models that are out of stock are removed from the live site until they come back into stock. If we have new models coming then they will be announced in advance so you can get the best possible beauty mirror that will be fantastic for you.
Remember to keep smiling and have a great week.

Hi it’s Debra again and the Christmas season will be on us before you know it and our magnifying mirrors will be at the top of many peoples list. Considering some of the things we have seen and heard this year I thought this timely warning might help.
Here at the office we have fielded a number of enquiries about magnifying mirrors, magnifying mirrors wall mounted with lights right through to the magnifying makeup mirrors. In the last 12 months there has been an explosion of offerings for magnifying mirrors. Notably there are sites posing as Australian and literally millions of offerings from China.
What the consumer does not know is that any lighted magnifying mirror coming from overseas is made to work on the USA 110 volt system. That means the plug is wrong and the wiring is not up to Australian regulations to carry our 240 volt power. This means when plugged in they will burn out either instantly or slowly melt the wiring inside the mirror leaving bare wire which can result in the user getting a shock. More than twice the voltage /power going into undersized wiring is dangerous.
Ask before you buy – “Is it 240 volt and does it have an Australian plug”? is the best way to protect yourself. Yes you can buy and use a transformer to solve the problem however the cost of the mirror and the transformer out weigh what you can buy locally.
We also know the offerings or listings if you like from eBay are very heavy when you Google the type of mirror you want. Please be very careful - the picture you see is not the mirror 99% of time. When your $6 bargain mirror arrives you may be in for a big surprise. It’s very difficult to get any recourse when things go wrong from suppliers located offshore. Those who rang us often said all they were told was “Not Our Fault”
We speak from experience and you would not believe some of the people who rang us asking for advice on what they should they do. They see that we are the Jerdon and Zadro sellers here in Australia and seek recourse from My Health And Beauty. Online sounds great and generally is however Sellers know you are in another country and you just will not get anywhere except a whole lot of noise.
At this point I should advise everybody our magnifying mirrors with lights have all been manufactured for Australia 240 volt and as such have the correct wiring, switches and Australian plugs and backed by a manufacturer’s warranty.
I do hope this post is of some help to those of you seek a magnifying mirror or at the very least you are a little wiser.
Until next time don't forget to smile and be grateful for everything you have.

Fogless magnifying mirror for your shower who would have thought this just 10 years ago,
Hi Its Debra and today I will cover why its not smart to put a standard wall mount magnifying mirror in your show.
There have been a lot of instances where people who don’t really think about it and mount their mirror on the wall inside the shower cubicle.
Hot water spraying in the wrong direction can make the glass crack and fall out. Sometimes it’s easy to slip in the shower and your natural reflex will have you reaching for something to stop yourself falling, it’s very easy to break the glass and have it hitting you some where on the body. A nasty dangerous blood loss can be the result. The standard magnifying mirrors are not made to be covered in water and steam – they rust very quickly as most mirrors are manufactured with steel and then chrome plated.
Please only ever put a magnifying mirror that’s designed and designated for use in your shower cubicle. A true shower mirror does not use glass they use mostly poly carbonate which does not shatter when it’s dropped. Add to that the surface of the mirror is treated to prevent it fogging up, something the standard mirror cannot do.
Our fantastic Zadro fogless lighted magnified shower mirror is perfect for the job.
The Z’Fogless™ Adjustable Magnification LED Lighted Mirror features a patented hydrophobic coating to repel water and keep it completely fog-free no matter how steamy the environment. Plus, its unique adjustable magnification control cycles between 1X and 5X simply by rotating the mirror head. The 1X magnification is great for all-around viewing needs while the 5X magnification is perfect for getting up close and personal when shaving smaller, sensitive areas of your face.
The perfect shave requires the perfect conditions. Dermatologists recommend shaving, cleansing, and exfoliating your skin in the shower. The hot water and steam allows your hair and skin to soften so that the razor can shave more efficiently avoiding that painful tugging, pulling, and razor burn.No matter how dim the environment, the LED surround light evenly illuminates your face for a fuller, brighter reflection. Built into this brilliant shower mirror is a place to hang your razor, LCD clock so your not late for work. Best of all it easily mounts to most any smooth surface via suction cups, hanging cord, or double-sided tape which is included in the mounting kit.
Having a mirror such this Zadro z850 fogless mirror is a much better option that putting a standard magnifying mirror in the shower.
You have a light which the standard one does not, it will not break if it falls down, A place to hang the razor and see the time is just the best thing when you’re in a hurry.
Best part is the z850 cost less to buy than the standard magnifying mirror.
In a perfect environment, the fogless mirror should stay fogless forever. However, external factors such as hard water build-up, airborne oils can reduce the “fogless” effect. To revert your mirror back to an “out of the box” state, clean the mirror surface with a non-ammonia cleaner, like our Z’Fogless Spray a non-abrasive cloth.
Do not clean the mirror with Windex or any other ammonia based cleaner, as it will destroy the “fogless” coating on the mirror.
