When it comes to home upgrades I like finding, testing, and recommending the most clever items that simplify your life, usually in more ways than one. I won’t suggest something that I don’t love, and I tend to love products that have more than one function because I can’t clutter my life (or my tiny apartment) with things that won’t help my day-to-day go even the tiniest bit smoother. So when I discovered a multi-functional smart makeup mirror to add to my vanity, I knew my morning routine was about to get a whole lot easier.
This 7-by-9-inch vanity mirror by iHome is not only lit by LED lights that display low and high settings, but it has a built-in Bluetooth speaker so you can listen to your favorite podcast or music as you prepare for your day or night out. But what makes this mirror-speaker combo so handy is that you can use Siri and Google Now through the built-in microphone to make a phone call, send a text, ask about the weather for the day, check your calendar for upcoming appointments, play music or news, and more, making it an ultimate multi-tasking device.
Notice your phone didn’t charge overnight? The mirror is also equipped with a USB port to charge most mobile devices. And for those tiny details on your face you can’t see with a normal mirror, a 10X-magnified removable mirror is also included for more detailed grooming.
I do my hair and makeup in the mornings at my vanity (which, full disclosure, is also my desk), and having a makeup mirror that’s this good and has all these extras has become essential to my routine. Below, you can shop the iHome mirror on sale for $50 for a limited time. It’s perfect timing for the holidays as the mirror would also be a great gift, even if it’s just for yourself!
