Smart Beauty Technology
Post Sponsored through the Primp Network.
Being a work from home mom has definitely taken some getting used to, but being a work from home mom to a toddler is something on a whole new level! I’ve gotta keep one eye on her 24/7 or else she’ll end up grabbing something off the counter or dancing on top of the dining table! Fortunately for me, the HiMirror Plus lets me centralize where I need to be in the house to make sure that I can get ready for the day and still keep an eye on my daughter.
I’d like to think I’m up to date on technology (for the most part), but hearing that a Smart Beauty Mirror existed was exciting and intriguing. Did I need one? How could it help me? What I’ve come to learn over the past few weeks is that it could be helpful to me in several ways.
I’m a big fan of exploring different skincare products to figure out what works best for me. With the HiMirror Plus, not only can I analyze my skin on a weekly basis in several ways (pore size, texture, darks spots, wrinkles, etc), but I can build a snapshot history of all the skincare readings my smart mirror has taken. And talk about techy! I also have the HiSkin device that helps analyze moisture and pigmentation levels so I can really get an in depth look at the products I need for my skin. This handheld device is just held against the skin following prompts given to you on the mirror screen and it does all the calculations for you.
I decided to set this mirror up right smack dab in the middle of my home — which meant the dining to open living room space. My major motivation is so that I’m able to get ready in the mornings without worry of what my toddler is doing in the other room. Toddlers can be very quiet and have quick hands and I’d like to not have my house destroyed while “mommy was doing her makeup”.
Mounting the mirror was easy and setup was done with a quick QR code reading.There is also a stand you can get separately that allows you to rest the mirror on your vanity instead of mounting. I was pretty surprised how well a mirror could read my hand signals and waves to turn it from one screen to the next. They actually have a remote coming out really soon that give you another easy option to control the mirror. I easily “log in” to my account with a simple face recognition tool with the help of the built in HD camera. If I choose to keep the mirror powered on throughout the day I get a weather and temperature reading, or I can stream music if I choose.
Depending on the time of the day when I get ready, I can also choose to use HiMirror’s ambient LED lighting to help me get ready no matter how dark, or how early it is. I also like that it has the ability to zoom in when you’re really trying to get that eye liner perfected.
I’m most curious to see what kind of skincare analysis readings I will get in future months as I continue to track my skin and products. I enjoy tracking information like this and seeing where it steers me in the future. I’m hoping it will teach me some things about the products I am using and if I should stay the course or try something new.
I think the HiMirror Plus would be a fabulous gift for any beauty enthusiast out there. If you love new beauty inventions, getting an in depth analysis of your skin like having your own personal beauty consultant in your home, or want to better understand how your skincare products are helping or hurting your skin, then you’ll want to take a good look at the HiMirror Plus. It does take some getting used to with the hand gesture control, but once you’ve got it, you’re good! Keep in mind they recently launched their new remote control that should make things even easier!
Right now they have a couple bundle packages that you should know about:
HiMirror + Remote Control: $149 + free shipping
HiMirror Plus + Remote Control: $229 + free shipping
