Hi everyone well Christmas is coming fast with our new Matt Black 5x wall-mount magnifying mirror arriving in a nick of time. This is a really nice model and will look wonderful in your trendy new bathroom as Black is the finish these days.
With the addition of a black finish, it now means here at My Health and Beauty we can offer this 5x wall mount mirror in 4 different finishes Chrome, Gold, Satin Nickel and Matt Black. Just a side note here believe it or not we have had interior designers ask if we could get mirrors done with a RED finish that's just going a little too far.
It is fairly standard in all the dimensions that are 20cm in diameter, however, the extension is now set at 30cm still more than ample.
The round base that mounts to the wall gives it a solid base and durability in its pivot actions. This mirror itself can be positioned from side to side 180 degrees, is double sided and by turning the mirror you can have either 5x 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 it's neat and tidy the dimensions are as follows with the unit folded back into the smallest possible configuration 32cm high x 30cm wide and 4cm 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.
This is the most expensive mirror to have made and with the new packaging inside a foam box with an outer cardboard cover this mirror needs to be sent out in a 5KG express bag because of the external box dimensions. It's a little more expensive for that reason however we want you to receive your mirror in good order. The thinner boxes with an inner cardboard packaging do not travel well in the mail.
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 your mirror nice and clean which can be done with a soft rag.
Just a quick mention before I go. We often get asked what magnification do you suggest? This is a tough one not knowing each person's circumstance. As a general rule if you wear glasses then you will need the higher magnifications from 7x upwards. The middle of the road magnification most common is the 5x so if you are not sure we would start here. Keep in mind a magnification mirror is like a new pair of glasses it will take a couple of use for your eyes to adjust.
Please understand with Christmas coming fast delivery of your mirror will sometimes be slower than you expect. We do pack and send same day as purchase however if Australia Post is backlogged or our road freight service is flat out it will simply take a little longer. By all means, if you have concerns feel free to call or email.
Just one more thing to mention and that is, do not judge the colour of any finish of the mirrors in the images. Gold is really Gold Colour and Matt Black is really Matt black despite what you see in the images. Photographing mirrors is very hard because all surfaces pick up the different light reflections in the room.
We are waiting patiently for our container to land with new stock lines, I will inform you about them as soon as I can get my hands on them.
Have fun shopping for Christmas - keep that smile going and I; ll be in touch soon.

Hi everyone Deb here with an update on one of our magnifying mirror models.
The ever popular 2028C scissor arm magnifying mirror has received an update
after 16 years.
The design of this scissor arm magnifying mirror has been around for many years and reminds us of something you would find in the grand old hotels of the 20's.
The standout design feature of this mirror is the scissor arm action that allows it to extend out from the wall. Jerdon have gone away from the 4x magnification and upgraded it to a 7x magnification. The new model designation is now 2027C. That's a very good mid-range magnification in a large diameter mirror.
This wall mounted model will extend out from the wall further than any other model on the market and with a reach of 60cm. The wall mount bracket has sufficient strength also to allow the mirror to move or swing from left to right 180 degrees. To add to the versatility the mirror itself is double sided and by simply turning the mirror itself you can have either 7x magnification to get close up on what you're doing or 1x to just check everything is in order before you leave.
There has been a trend of late where customers like to mount their magnifying mirror inside a cabinet. With that in mind and in terms of a space requirement the scissor arm magnifying mirror will fold back flat against the wall with the overall dimensions being 41cm high and 235cm. These are the highest and widest points.
We are not really sure of the reason however it's this model that gets continually mounted inside shower cubicles and so a word of warning do not mount the mirror inside the shower cubicle. The mirror is made from glass and a real chance of shattering should hot water hit the surface or you slip and grab for the mirror on instinct. Not only that the metal scissor arm will rust. Chrome, Gold, or Brass plating will not prevent steel from rusting.
Lots of enquiries coming through the phone of late regarding stock and delivery times. It worth repeating here at My Health and Beauty the team go out of their way to be as fast as possible from the time you order till you receive your order. We know other online sites are not as particular on this point.
We are reliant on Australia post and Star Track who are reasonable most of the time. Other times they can be shocking including this week alone it took 3 times for customer to get her mirror with the first one arriving smashed after something heavy was dropped on it. We replaced it only to find the second never arrived at all and is still lost and the third unit has been sent and arrived safely in one piece.
For those enquiring if we have stock, if you can see a magnifying mirror on our site it is in stock when we reach zero stock the item comes off the site meaning you can't see it until restock. Once again we know there are many sites who will sell anything, take the money and apologize later this is not best practice and only pushes customers away from online purchasing.
Finally let me say that you can feel much more comfortable when a phone number is given and you can actually talk to somebody. I know our liaison person Greg does a great job and answers all manner questions to help the customers. I guess that's a great check point for you the customer is if the site has no phone number to ring to talk to somebody or if it's an overseas site with no chance to ask a question then maybe you might be better off avoiding them.
Thats all from me today .
Remember to keep smiling and just do the best you can each day.

Hi and welcome to our first blog entry for My Health and Beauty.
The blog has been introduced so we can bring you up to date information and informative articles on some the product lines carried by My Health and Beauty.
There are many new lines coming on board so you will need to check regularly as we add different styles of magnifying mirrors plus we aim to bring you the best in health and beauty innovations.
This month we have added to the site from our US partners an item not previously found in Australia that being a Nano Uv baby bottle nipple and pacifier sanitizer so no more issues with nasty germs when you’re out and about with your new baby.
Each week I will give you a complete rundown on all the items and how they can be best put to use plus any advice when we know new products will be added to the site. Sometimes you will see items taken down from the site through stock arriving late or we are just sold out. Don’t worry as soon as the stock comes into the warehouse the missing items will be put back online. If you can’t find a mirror that fits your purpose then feel free to send an email and we’ll do our best to get that mirror for you from our US suppliers. As an example we note that the trend overseas is for 15x magnification mirrors which seem hard to believe as Aussies in general buy 5x magnification and think that pretty hard to look into. I guess that comes from people who don’t need to wear glasses, however if you wear glasses or contacts all day and then take them off one may very well need 15x to see just to remove your makeup.
In terms of stock arriving I have been informed that the 10x wall mounted mirrors are just a week or so away. I have been told also that at long last the first of our square wall mount mirrors is in the same batch so look out for that one.
Remember to smile and have a great week
