    Cool Does anyone else use a 10x Magnifying Mirror?

    I might be the only one, but does anyone else finish up a shave with a magnifying mirror? I do two passes in a normal mirror, then flip it over for my third pass. It really lets me chase down those sneaky whiskers that I missed on my first two passes. Just wondering.

    No. But I have been wondering; is that what those extending shave mirrors do? I've seen them installed next to wall mirrors and can't work out why you'd need it.

    I hung one when I started but found the mirror even at no magnification to be distracting. Now it's just another thing I need to clean in my shave oasis.

    I have one on the wall. I use it when shaving under my nose and when shaving the chin. When you get used to it itīs hard to manage without.

    Yup use the wife’s lighted magnified mirror on her makeup table, to do a final check, usually get a couple problem hairs under my nose or at the corner of my mouth.

    The light and the magnification are great.

    I cant live without my mag. mirror. My eye sight now that I'm an old fart makes it hard to see properly. I originally bought it to supplement the standard bathroom mirror. But now I use it 100% of the time.
    Love it.

    I gave one of those to the wifey years ago. It's almost identical to the one in the picture except for the finish. I use it all the time. Really helps when detailing around the stash and goatee.
