Let me say immediately that the product listing needs to be updated to reflect that this is not a double sided mirror, but solely a 3X magnification mirror. The cord is also different to the one pictured. If these changes were made, this would easily be a five star product, simply because it delivers on everything it offers except those two things. It's not a problem for me as I have a regular mirror in the bathroom, but could be an issue if you plan to buy this as your only mirror.

It's not difficult to install, you'll need a drill (it comes with wall plugs and screws) and somewhere you can drill four holes safely, then insert plugs, screw on the backing plate and attach the mirror to the plate. It's fast and easy and even though the mirror is pretty heavy, the plugs support it well and there's no tipping or wobbling.

I love that the mirror really is fully adjustable, it pulls out via the swivel arm, but more importantly, it can be angled up or down, perfect for shorter people like me, or for getting a good view of your chin to pluck a pesky hair. The 3X magnification is perfect for grooming and the light only improves on that. If, like me, you've ever gotten into the car and in the bright sunlight noticed an unplucked hair or stray eyebrow, well lament no more. The light is not blindingly bright (thankfully), but bright enough that it will illuminate every stray hair, just as the sun does.

It's also perfect for delicate makeup operations, like applying false lashes, but make sure you check your makeup in natural light before going out, as using artificial light can skew the results. I prefer a round shape to my mirror, but that's a personal preference and it is nice to see this unique square shape which I haven't seen before. I have to admit that it fits against the wall perfectly and looks great next to my cabinet, due to the square shape. But my favourite part is no more back strain from leaning over the sink to reach the mirror.

My only negative would be the cord. For a start, I have a lot of bathroom appliances and having another thing that plugs in is a bit of an annoyance.The cord is also thick and dark coloured so it really shows up in a bathroom and makes it look cluttered. I would like to see a battery powered, or chargeable version of this so you don't have to use the cord constantly.

Protip: If you're not using the light feature, you can throw the cord over the swivel arm or back panel and 'hide' it from view behind the mirror.
