Who Knew? A Fogless Shower Mirror

Disclosure: I got this product as part of a review opportunity. 

Don't laugh. I didn't know there was a such thing as a fogless mirror. I always figured if I really needed to see in a steamy bathroom, I'd have to break out my blow dryer or crack open the door, neither of which is convenient.

Apparently, there are fogless shower mirrors for shaving that are meant to stay clear. Designed for men, I'm assuming, to be able to shave in the shower, which is better for the skin (goodbye razor burn), you can totally stand in your super steamy shower and the mirror stays clear.


I'm not a guy and my husband doesn't shave in the shower, but I actually find it better for plucking my eyebrows. The same rule kind of applies here - the pores are more open so hair is easier to remove. It's less painful and I can get the really difficult itty bitty new growth much better.

Cassani Company, who makes the mirror I'm reviewing, claims their "anti-fog nanotechnology repels fog." Technically that is true and yes, this mirror seems to work well. But the nanotechnology bit makes me laugh because, well, you can find a way to use that term for almost anything product-related. It's a buzz word and it's overused. I can see why they are marketing it that way, but I'd rather simple honesty than marketing-speak, especially when the product works and doesn't need to oversell it's claim.

Cassani Company is in the process of updating their website. When I first visited, I was worried I had the wrong link. Looking at the product packaging and having had the product in my hands, it doesn't match the visual look of the web style. I thought I was at a home remodeling website, not a product design company site. The mirror is an inexpensive, simple home product. It's not high end, not fancy. It does what it's designed to do and does it simply, so don't let the website have you thinking this is a designer mirror. It's functional and it works, but it's not fancy.


If you want more information and additional input from other reviewers, be sure to check out the Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror. The package includes the mirror and wall mount, plus a razor wall mount. It's nice to keep the razor off the shower floor, where it could get stepped on.

I mounted my mirror to the glass wall of my shower because I figured it might be easier to remove if I had to take it down. We have a 10-year-old fiberglass shower and my experience with sticky stuff and fiberglass is that things stick REALLY well. So basically, my fear is that it'll be permanent and perhaps less so on the glass. I cleaned the glass well before applying the stickered mirror hook and found everything installed quickly and easily. It took 30 seconds. Super fast.

This is a very convenient mirror to have in the shower. It's the right size for face shaving, for guys - or for eyebrow plucking for women, and it's lightweight so I'm not worried about it falling off the shower wall.

I received a Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Pottery Barn Kids Lunch Bags: Cute, but Annoying

When my daughter transitioned to "big kid school" this fall, I bought her a personalized lunch bag from Pottery Barn Kids. This was our first time having to send lunch to school, so I wanted her to enjoy carrying the bag and also have it be practical. She's just turning 4, so it was important that she be able to open the bag herself and carry it from the car to the lunch cart without assistance.

Pottery Barn Kids offers a slew of fabric patterns and four bag styles. Penny picked the MacKenzie Chocolate Zebra classic lunch bag, which is a fairly standard size and shape lunch box. We paid $7 to have her name embroidered on the bag, which I figured was worth the price to ensure her box isn't mixed up with another kid's lunch. I let Penny pick the font and thread color and ordered online.

Our classic lunch bag has now been used every weekday for nearly three months, but it looks more like a year old. It's still functional in that Penny can carry it in to school, o…

Switching from Olay Regenerist to L'Oreal RevitaLift

I've been using Olay Regenerist DNA Superstructure UV Cream for years now. I love the SPF 25 (it's now 30) the thick moisturizing quality, and how fresh my skin feels once it's absorbed. It's really thick, so it tends to need more time before I put on foundation, and it does leave my skin a touch lighter than it is in real life. The sunscreen ingredients mean this moisturizer smells just like traditional sun protection, and even a bit like my daughter's diaper cream (ick), but I know it's doing it's job and I've been really happy with it.


I intended to buy some more during a trip to Walmart today, but L'Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Day Lotion had a $2 off coupon attached, and the base price was less than the Olay product, so I took a chance and bought  the RevitaLift instead.


L'Oreal's bottle is prettier with a similar pump mechanism. Like Olay, the product is in an opaque container, which helps keep the contents from being affected by ligh…

eSalon.com Hair Color Review

It's now May 2014 and since my original review, I've had a chance to fly out to eSalon and see how orders are processed, learn the right way to apply color, and find out the differences between box color and eSalon color. I learned a lot and have a totally different perspective now and would definitely recommend giving eSalon a try.

When you order from eSalon, be sure to upload a current, well-lit photo of your hair and don't hesitate to ask their color experts for advice. The eSalon team are experts. Let them help you find the right shade and apply color correctly. It's a learning process if you're used to box color products.

Last August, I tried eSalon. At the time, I found the color was fine in that it was even and matched what I had seen online for that shade, but it wasn't really what I was going for. eSalon's customer service was helpful, with a colorist calling to explain how their product differs from what I buy in-store and the risks of going darke…
