The Best in Holiday 2012 Gift Finds is an ongoing series until December that celebrates the practical to the extravagant, the unusual to the commonly needed items of everyday life.
From food, wine and spirits to beauty, clothing and even home goods and appliances, we have been trying and testing and ultimately weeding out the good stuff you should consider for giving this holiday season. Take us shopping with you.
Raise your hand if you are like me, making that old Clairol lighted rectangle mirror a shameful fixture in the bathroom. My mirror, now only able to lean against things with something in front to keep it from skittering off the counter, has been with me since high school, and the four fluorescent settings take me from pink to green to scary full frontal white.
There's affordable hope and way better lighting to do your makeup in, as Revlon has wheeled out their Spa line of beauty items, in particular, two powerful mirrors that each offer modern design and remarkable range of motion.
Revlon Spa offers a line of facial spa products and mirrors which are available for women to help restore skin health and beauty.
Why we love it:
Their new and improved vanity mirrors are designed to give women the opportunity to apply makeup, pluck eyebrows and generally see what you need to see without harsh glare. The light emanates in a circular manner around the mirror, so you can really see what's going on.
I especially adore the brush bronze finish Swivel Mirror, the smaller of the two and and with the strongest magnification, going from 1x to 10x magnification with a simple turn of the mirror (360°).
The lighted rim option provides natural light to give you a perfect glare-free reflection.
The 360° Mirror Rotation is a real boon for crowded counters, and the soft but effective rim lighting is not your mama's harsh fluorescent glare we all grew up with.
The other mirror is the stylish Revlon Spa Effect Touch Lighted Oval Mirror. A Polished Chrome Oval mirror, lighted 8" x 9-½ " oval design with 3 level touch tone lighting and a dual side magnification allows you to see 7 times closer as well as regular viewing for all your beauty regimen needs. The mirror also swivels 360°
A nice guest bathroom mirror that has an easy light on light off feature by touch. You have to get used to it, but it's a fast way to adjust the intensity of the light.
