It’s a little mirror with a built in light. It isn’t the Les Tai Tai I have long coveted but it is a similar idea I suppose...
I stumbled across this in my newly opened local Poundland (no more travelling 40 odd miles to the nearest one!!). So there is a clue here are as to the price. For 100 of your finest British pennies you too could be the proud owner of this handy little contraption.
As the photos show, it is a double sided mirror (one side more magnifying) with a little light switch and light. It also has a little sucker pad on one side but I find I have mixed success with these. It comes with a non replaceable battery and although in the daylight, the light doesn’t seem like much, in a dimmer situation or in darkness it is a powerful enough little thing.
I brought this away on a hen weekend and it was great for using to apply my make up when there was a severe lack of mirror availability but most importantly it was fab in the morning when I woke up early (still covered in the last night’s make up, ooops!) and wanted to give my face a good clean. This allowed me to see what I was doing without having to wake everyone up turning on lights/opening curtains/finding a mirror. I also used it when plucking my eyebrows and the light/magnified mirror combination worked a real treat!
I will do another post on my Poundland bargains but this was my favourite – what do you think?
