Magnifying Mirror 10x - JP120

Posted by Debra on 15 August 2013

Magnifying Mirror 10x Wall Mounted is another common question we get these days.

Hi its Debra
And today I will give you some information on our Magnifying 10x wall mounted mirror.

Age does tend to creep up on us and we hate to admit but a bit help would not go astray when you want to put your makeup on or put your contact lenses in. For some of us it gets even harder if you already wear glasses and you need to take them off to put your makeup on. Well this fantastic 10x magnified mirror we guarantee will make your life easier.

It’s like being able to see again.

At this point I should warn you of two things once you have and used a 10x magnifying mirror you will never go back to anything else AND if you have never used a 10x mirror before it can be confronting if your eye sight is not so poor.


When using this mirror your face will be just 4 inches or 10 cm away from the surface so your image in the mirror is not distorted. Many people think you can stand back in any position and it just gives you a bigger version of your face thinking it will make it easier to put makeup on.

This lifesaving magnifying mirror 10x wall mounted will extend out 32cm from the wall. Our JP120 10x wall mount is of the highest quality comes only in a chrome finish currently with the possibility it will come soon with the gold finish. This mirror itself can be positioned from sided to side 180 degrees, is double sided and by turning the mirror you can have either 10x magnification for close up attention  or 1x to see that all is in order before you walk out the door.

As always I like to give you the space requirement for the magnifying mirror so you can plan the best place to put it. These dimensions can be used should you wish to place the mirror inside a cabinet which has become more popular these days. This mirror will fold back flat against the wall so its neat and tidy the dimensions are as follows with the unit folded back into the smallest possible configuration  32cm high x 26cm wide and 3cm deep.

Mounting this magnifying mirror on the wall is the easiest of all with two screws provided, they should be screwed directly into timber located behind the plaster or if you have a tiled surface then drill the holes and put plastic plugs in then screw your screws into the plugs.

Because we have had enquiries I need to remind you do not mount the mirror inside the shower cubicle. The mirror is real glass and can shatter easily should hot water hit the surface or if you slip and grab for the mirror on instinct it can be very dangerous. Broken glass inside a shower cubicle can result in a nasty cut. The mirrors are made from steel for strength but will rust when continuously doused in shower water. Chrome, Gold, or Brass plating will not prevent steel from rusting when they get wet with shower water everyday.

A normal mounting in a bathroom will see your mirror last for a long time with the only action you need to do is keep you mirror nice and clean which can be done with a soft rag.

The JP120 magnifying mirror 10x is a quality buy and should last a lifetime.

Until next time remember a smile costs nothing.

Magnifying Mirror with Light, Direct wired and Wall Mounted.

Posted by Debra on 13 August 2013

Magnifying Mirror with lights - Hi its Debra again it the question we get most when people make enquiries so hopefully this post will help you through any question you may have.

At last a magnifying mirror with light that is manufactured in direct wired 240 volt configuration for Australia. We call it our HL8 direct wired model  some people call it hard wired lighted wall mounted magnifying mirror.

This is the only model in our range that has been specifically manufactured as a direct wired model. To explain direct wire or hard wired depends what side of the fence you’re from. Either way direct wired or hard wired means that the mirror does not come with a curly cord.

The plugin version comes with the curly cord which will plug into a nearby power point.


The HL8 is manufactured so that cable that powers the light in the mirror, comes from the back of the wall plate and can be wired to the inside of the wall connecting directly to the house circuit. It requires connection by an electrician making it completely concealed. This is what hotels normally do with these mirrors, aesthetically it looks cleaner with no cables hanging about and it makes the mirror harder to remove from the wall by some less than ideal guests.
We notice these day’s people are putting the direct wired model into their homes as a matter of style as a fixed piece in the bathroom.

The one main question we get is how do you turn the light on and off?  The on off switch is mounted on the backing plate and it’s a push button type for ease of use and easier to see.
The direct wired HL8 magnifying mirror is manufactured by Jerdon in the US and is the Halo light design.
Halo light simply means the outer edge of the mirror is treated so it lets the light through in a gentle diffused manner. It uses a 15 watt incandescent warm white globe which has shown to give the best natural light on your face when using the mirror.


Lighting is most bathrooms is an issue as the position of the overhead light fittings either throws a shadow over you face or the light bounces of the standard wall mirror found in most bathrooms. Either way it makes it very difficult to do such things as put makeup on, pop your contact lenses in or attend to any eyelash issues. With the halo mirror its light reaches every part of your face including under your eyebrows through light coming on the face from every possible angle. If you have a dark bathroom then application of makeup can be difficult, this mirror will solve that issue forever.


There have been some questions about being able to replace the globe. The direct wired HL8 comes with a spare globe in the packaging and is still ready available in the lighting stores however My Health and Beauty carries spares globes and parts for all mirrors at all times. Under normal usage in your home we expect that the globes will last up to 3 years. Speaking of spare parts we also carry the spare mirrors to refit back into the housing should one get accidently broken.


The  direct wired HL8 magnifying mirror with light  comes in 3x magnification and soon to be in 5x  with a Chrome configuration finish.. For those who want to place the mirror inside a cupboard then the following dimensions maybe of use. The widest point when the mirror is folded back against the wall is 26cm Height 25cm and the depth when folded back as far as it will go to the wall is 12cm.
Well I hope that will answer some of your questions for now on the direct wired HL8 model

Until next time - remember to smile and have a great day

Debra.

Zadro Magnifying Mirrors have arrived.

Posted by Debra on 8 April 2013

Happy Easter everyone its Debra again with this quick post to tell you the new models mentioned in my last post have arrived. All have been set up here on the site and ready to go. Three different versions to fit your every purpose from the magnifying mirror on a stand to the latest fogless shower mirror and let’s not forget compact lighted magnifying mirror that folds out.

The LEDT01 from Zadro is not for everyone however for those looking for multi purpose compact then have a look at this model. It has two mirrors that you can look into at the same time with a different purpose. One surface being 10x magnification which you can get a lovely close up and the other 1x for a quick look to see everything is all in order. The best thing being you can switch on the light for one or both of the mirrors and it will fold out and sit on any surface. Day or night time compact for your handbag or use it as a travel mirror this one is the best there is.

Our first sale went out the door before we even had time to post the LEDVPR410 Ultra Bright LED Next generation unit from Zadro such is its reputation. Large surface perfect halo light for your face and stylish as well. This vanity magnifying mirror is certainly worth your consideration. It comes with its own transformer and will plug into any power point and you can take it anywhere in the house.

Finally the newest shower model from Zadro is the ZW20SS with unbreakable glass and a guarantee not to fog up. The process this mirror uses to prevent fogging is ingenious. Just lift the mirror off its base and allow the hot show water to run in the back of the mirror and hang it up again. The show water heats the mirror making it fogless in an instant. The polished stainless steel finish makes this unit very attractive so if you are in the market for fogless illuminated shower mirror then take a look at this unit.

Well we hope you have a great week as for me its time to get busy - I'll be writing a detailed version of the new products so you can make an informed decision.

As always don't forget to smile!

Zadro Magnifying mirrors and more

Posted by Debra on 5 February 2013

Hi everyone its Debra again after a long break. We hope you had a great Christmas and New Year break. During the year we received many enquiries do we carry the Zadro range of products and I’m pleased to say we have been carrying this range since inception. Today I have added the Zadro logo to the blog as a way of letting you know and making it a little more obvious that we carry many of their product lines from magnifying mirrors to UV disinfection sanitizing lines.

With the next shipment due in March My Health and Beauty plans to add even more lines .One of the new lines available will be a new shaving mirror for use inside the shower the stainless steel ZW20SS break resistant mirror The mirror has a patented built-in reservoir which heats the mirror surface, keeping it fogless even in the hottest and steamiest showers.

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. This mirror will already compliment the Zadro Z850 adjustable 1x to 5x magnifying mirror on the site.

We have also added the new Ultra Bright LED bathroom vanity magnifying mirror the LEDVPR410. This will expand on the popular NGLED410 also from Zadro found on the site. This bathroom vanity magnifying mirror lights up with energy-saving, super bright LED bulbs that illuminate your entire face, allowing you to see the finest details in even the dimmest lighting!

We all carry a compact mirror around in the handbag to ensure we look our best; however it’s very annoying at night or even early evening where you may not get the opportunity to use a light.The next shipment will also carry the LEDT01 a lighted travel mirror that offers a compact design with the functionality of two application mirrors that can be set in position and you can use the both at the same time.

No hands needed just set in position turn the light on and everything becomes very easy especially when you’re on the run. It features two LED lighted magnifying mirrors that collapse into a sleek and compact size ready to put back in your bag.


Zadro design style and patent many of their products so you know the quality just has to be there. We’ve not seen any other mirror range that has the affordable style of the Zadro range.

Have a look see what you think you won't be disappointed.

Until next time smile and have great week.

Lighted Wall Mounted Magnifying Mirrors back in stock

Posted by Debra on 23 November 2012

   Hi it’s Debra again
With Christmas is coming very fast we have fantastic news this week the HL7 Lighted Wall Mounted Magnifying Mirror has come back into stock just in time.

The unique features of this lighted wall mount mirror are the large 25cm diameter mirror and the soft halo lighting is uses to show your face in the most natural way. There has been plenty of discussion about the colour of LED lit mirrors with the colour being stark white which is not the best to use when trying to apply the right colour combination cosmetics to your features.

With the HL7C there is no need to worry, however lighting in most bathrooms generally through the position of the overhead light fittings that can either throw a shadow over your face or the light bounces of the standard wall mirror found in most bathrooms. Either way it makes it very difficult to do such things as put makeup on, pop your contact lenses in or attend to any eyelash issues. With the halo mirror its light reaches every part of your face including under your eyebrows through light coming on the face from every possible angle. If you have a dark bathroom then application of makeup can be difficult, this mirror will solve that issue forever.

With the 25cm diameter mirror it shows your whole face with a gentle 3 times magnification. The transition from looking into the 3 time magnification back into your normal bathroom mirror is easy for your eyes to adjust. Speaking of the normal bathroom mirror we get a lot of enquiries asking why this mirror is not double sided. Double sided for those who don’t know the term means on one side the mirror is magnified and on the other it is standard with no magnification. Our answer revolves around the fact why would you look in to a 25cm diameter normal magnification when generally one whole wall in bathrooms these days has the same mirror or non magnified if you like.
Generally people use the normal bathroom mirror for a quick check to see if all is order, the magnified side on the HL7C is meant for close up work. So our view is generally double sided mirrors are a waste unless of course you have a travel style model which makes it very handy when on the run.

I should also say that this mirror plugs into a nearby power point with a short curly cord; many people ask how does the light come on because they can’t see the cable. Our photographer does not like a messy image so the cord is tucked away where you can’t see it. There is a push button on off switch located on the mounting plate that screws to the wall making it easy to operate and you will not be required to turn the power point switch on and off all the time.

The HL7 lighted wall mounted magnifying mirror comes in several variation those being Chrome or Gold finish and wired to plug straight into a power point or no curly cord so it can be direct wired to the wall without the need of a nearby power point.

Thats it for this week so keep smiling enjoy the shopping and have a great run up the Christmas.

Debra
