So, don’t let your mirror be the one that stands in the way of your flawless look and invest in a simplehuman Sensor Mirror, which is both affordable and functional.

What is the simplehuman Sensor Mirror Good for?

This mirror has multi-sense technology that lights up when you approach your face to the mirror and turns off when you walk away. It is ideal for a beauty enthusiast who wants a mirror that is both functional and easy to use, and brings a little decorative element to a room as well. Men who like to be precise with their shaving can also benefit from this mirror and its excellent lighting as well as reflective qualities.

The simplehuman Sensor Mirror has some very unique features, which not just set it apart from other mirrors in the market, but also set it ahead of them. The lighting of the mirror is excellent, and enables the user to clearly see any stray hair and allow them to apply just the right amount of blush. The mirror itself is 9 inches in diameter which is quite the generous size.

The Simplehuman Sensor mirror automatically turns on and off, preventing exhaustion on your bulb to save more battery power. Another perk to this mirror is the fact that it is cordless, and comes with a rechargeable battery. This makes it very easy to move around from one room or place to another.

The battery lasts 5 weeks once fully charged and when used to its full capacity. There is also a tiny LED indicator that lets you know when the battery is about to run out and the battery is fully charged.

In terms of the base structure of the mirror, it is quite sturdy and sits well on any space. Its sleek and minimal design makes it a choice addition to a room, rather an eyesore.

The height of the mirror is also adjustable up to 18 inches, and it can be rotated 180 degrees which allows you to move it around to a spot that best suits your beauty need. The 5-year warranty is also quite amazing, considering that most competitors only offer a maximum of 3 years.


One of the few drawbacks to this mirror is the lack of a regular mirror. It comes with just one 5x magnified mirror; a non-magnified side would have been an added bonus. Another, and more major, negative about this mirror is its sensor. Despite the fact that it forms part of its name, it does not work too well.

If you take a pause during applying makeup to grab a different item, the sensor turns the light off and doesn’t turn on again for a while even when you turn back into its sensor range.
