How to Make Shopping for Skincare Easier Using the HiMirror Plus

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions, as always, are my own.
 

With as many skincare products, brands and different "quick fixes" there are on the market today, it's hard to know what will work for you, what you should spend/splurge on, what isn't worth the steep price - you get the idea! If you search "cleanser" on Sephora's website, you get pages and pages of results. Whose to say which will work best for you? You can read reviews and sort your search based on best sellers, etc., but a quick search isn't customizing products for YOUR skin. All of us have totally different needs when it comes to skincare and a product that works for your sister may not work for you. Ever since I began using the HiMirror, I've had a much more personalized shopping experience and I've even found new products I've grown to LOVE! Now, Hi Mirror has a new Plus version and it's better than ever:


The all new HiMirror PLUS:



If you haven't heard of the HiMirror yet, it's a two-in-one mirror and a virtual beauty consultant built in one. It has an HD quality camera for images of your face to analyze your skin and help figure out what's best for your skin and what you need to keep your skin glowing and beautiful! You can create a customized beauty routine, access your information/recommended products via the HiMirror app and track your progress. If you want to read more about the HiMirror and what it does, check out my last post about the original HiMirror!


The new HiMirror Plus is extremely improved and most importantly, the setup of the HiMirror has been extremely simplified! It also allows for more users' information attached on the device (my sister was extremely excited about this one!) and it can store more photos, meaning more detailed information about your progress. The other extreme, main difference I noticed when setting my new HiMirror up versus the original version is how fast it works and how much quicker it can connect to your WiFi. Overall, it's been a much simpler experience which makes using my own, personal skin consultant even more exciting!


You can set up your HiMirror using a QR code now - once you download the app, you can hold the QR code on your phone up to the mirror and it'll recognize the account you made, or connect to your previous account if you had the original HiMirror first.


As you likely have seen, I've been talking a lot about how much I'm loving the Clinique BIY Drops and of course, my favorite Clinique moisturizer EVER. I wanted to add the moisturizer to my daily regimine on the HiMirror app, and all I had to do was scan the moisturizer's bar code and it came right up on my app! Now it's included on my app and in my daily routine, which helps the HiMirror more accurately find products that are perfect for my skin.

I've found some really great skincare products that have helped my skin more than I could imagine. I found a great brightening toner and my favorite concealer through the HiMirror, which I already use so it solidified my love for it! ;)


Other ways to find the perfect skincare products for you:


While using my HiMirror is my #1 skin consultant, I've found a few other ways to work together with my HiMirror to find the best skincare products for my skins needs. It's happened dozens of times - we hear about the new, "must have" beauty product out there and how it'll help no matter what your skin is like, but then it doesn't. Who can relate?! (*raises hand*)

1. Give the product(s) time: sometimes you can only test a product by using it for an extended period of time. If you're looking for a product to zap a zit, it should work fairly quickly. On the other hand, if you need something to minimize pores or fine lines, give it a few weeks.

2. Rule out anything that hurts: if it's irritating your skin, making your skin red, stinging, etc., it likely DOES NOT mean it's working! I'm guilty of thinking this myself, but certain products aren't for everyone. I have sensitive skin, so I know that harsher products (that are meant to "work faster") aren't usually for me.

3. Ask your dermatologist: I'm one of those people who asks her dermatologist close to everything, ha! I've always asked her about products I hear great things about and what she thinks and if she knows of any "miracle products" for whatever I'm on the hunt for. Lately, I've been asking her about some of the higher end/more serious products that the HiMirror has recommended and she's agreed with all of them! In fact, I think I got her hooked on the idea of using a HiMirror! ;)


HiSkin:



The HiSkin is another one of the new products from HiMirror. Guys, it's SO cool! It's a super small piece of magic, basically. ;) It defines and detects any problems with your skin and works hand-in-hand with your HiMirror. Using my HiSkin, I found out that my face was 25.7% dry (I about lost my mind, LOL) and began using my moisturizers more frequently and in a matter of a month, it's now down to 13.7% dry which is crazy good in my book for this time of year! HiSkin tracks your skins progress and analyzes and detects any problems on your forehead, cheeks, eyes and neck. It's genius, fits in the palm of your hand and really makes you feel like you're living in the future!

If you've tried the HiMirror, I'd love to hear what you think about it! It's an incredible and innovative product that has made a huge difference in how I shop for skincare!

  12. It's not an easy task to do shopping for the beauty products online. While we are shopping online we have to be careful about the products that we are buying. Also, there are many sites available which allows you testing of the products before buying.

  13. Skin needs extra care. For that we need to use good products for our skin. Because after 30's our skin faces aging related problems. And that doesn't look good. So it is important to avoid the aging problems.

  44. In recent years several motorized cleansing brushes have appeared on the market with promises of a deeper cleaning and more radiant skin. Quite an informative topic. Surely gonna buy this.

  45. Informative post. It is very important to take care of your skin.However, many women fail to realize their dreams as they are so caught up with their work and daily commitments that they fail to pay any attention to their body and skin.
