The HiMirror just changed the skincare game by allowing us to see how our skin is changing. The HiMirror is a smart mirror that scans your face and provides an in-depth analysis of your skin allowing you to truly see what your skin issues are and develop a routine to treat them. As you continue to use the mirror it provides you with graphical data and photo comparisons of your progress; now you can indeed see the effectiveness of the routine you’re following and the products you’re using. Game-Set-Match.
Setup: The HiMirror requires electrical power so keep this in mind when deciding on a location. The corresponding Smart Body Scale (more on the scale & the HiFit App in a future post) does have a built in battery so it doesn’t need to stay plugged in during use.
You can mount the HiMirror on the face of an existing mirror, on the wall or place on a tabletop using a stand. Because I will be moving soon, I choose not to mount on the bathroom mirror. I played around with the HiMirror both on my vanity and mounted on the wall, both worked well.
The HiMirror uses motion technology so when you mount the mirror make sure it is in a location where the sensor is unobstructed. The Mirror works on WIFI and periodically has automatic software updates. My mirror had an update a few days ago and even more incredible features appeared; I can now get the national news and stream music right from the HiMirror.
Once your mirror in position and connected to your home’s wifi you need to download the corresponding HiMirror smartphone app.
Analysis: Developed under the supervision of consultants in the fields of dermatology, medical beauty, cosmetic application and a host of other industry professionals the skin analysis is one of the most helpful features of the HiMirror. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about skin care and my needs, and even I was surprised at the results of my scan. Understanding what my skin needs are is very helpful for reaching my skin care goals. The data compiled by the HiMirror shows me if the products I’m using are working and I can make adjustments as needed.
Using the HiMirror I’ve been able to make better use of my beauty samples. A lot of times I get deluxe samples in beauty subscription boxes, Sephora orders, etc. these are all sitting in a basket and I’m determined to start working through them. I may have a first impression of these products after use, but often there isn’t enough to make a determination if they work. With the HiMirror I can log these products, keep track of when I started using them and get data on their effectiveness all from the Mirror, how neat is that.
Healthiness – Clarity – Firmness – Texture – Brightness
After your scan, your HiMirror Personal Beauty System detects dark spots, red spots, dark eye circles, fine lines, wrinkles, pores, and complexion, each detection is rated. I found it fascinating to see an in-depth skin analysis showing me everything the scan detected, areas of concern and how I scored.
I’m trying to tone down the makeup and focus more on the health of my skin, this innovative tech mirror is making that easy, definitely the best addition to my beauty routine. Now that I have seen such an in-depth view of my skin, I can’t believe once upon a time I was dropping major cash on skincare products without a true way to see how they were working, or even if they were what my skin truly needed. This Smart Mirror is making me a more informed consumer.
