HiMirror is “the world’s first smart beauty mirror” that helps you keep track of your skin’s health. Whether it’s dark circles under the eyes or clogged pores, this mirror uses metrics to monitor changes in your complexion. From skincare tips to analyzing your personal skincare routine, HiMirror uses Big Data to quantitatively keep track of your skincare products and measures their effectiveness compared to your skin’s health.
It even allows you to scan the barcodes of your skincare inventory – providing real-time suggestions for what skin care products to use and the right times to use them. This is the ideal product for someone who consistently asks, “Which skincare products is best for my skin?”
HiMirror’s technology is impressive. Based on the results of the perfect Skin Index Synthesis – a combined assessment of your skin’s Healthiness, Clarity, Firmness, Texture and Brightness, people are able to customize their own personalized skincare plan of attack. From periodic Facial Skin Testing to setting Skin Index Synthesis goals, HiMirror provides you with a comprehensive analysis on your skincare routine. In addition, it’ll give you tips and keep track of skin differences from one day to the next. The more users, the better HiMirror is able to identify products that truly produce results for people with similar skin issues.
The 11 x 16.4-inch mirror uses facial recognition technology and according to its site, “accounts for complexion and ethnic background.” Designed as a companion product to the company’s Smart Body Scale, these two bathroom amenities are the perfect combo for tracking health/beauty. Impervious to spraying water and humidity, this smart device can be hung right in your bathroom.
Using the data obtained in your initial skin assessment, HiMirror is able to track your skin’s day-to-day progression towards your ultimate goal. If anti-aging happens to be your goal, HiMirror will suggest anti-aging creams, masks, and exfoliating rubs that cater to not only your skin type but also your goal of smoothing out your crows feet.
My Beauty Box is HiMirror’s most noteworthy feature. Whether it’s tracking your daily skin care routine or taking pictures of skincare product barcodes, My Beauty Box allows you to sync your HiMirror skin analysis results and solution data to your smartphone. The companion app gives you real-time tips and data on the latest skincare products, proper application, daily weather updates, UV index and sync’s to your calendar. Having a smart mirror that gives you notifications is rather convenient, especially if it helps you get ready for work in the morning.
Designed by no fewer than 300 professional consultants in the dermatology, cosmetics, and medical beauty industries, HiMirror is a premium personal skincare device and with the app – a virtual beauty consultant. With that being said, there are a few concerns around privacy. After all, this is a Wi-Fi connected two-way smart mirror fully equipped with a camera hanging in your bathroom/bedroom. HiMirror Product engineers, knowing that this may be an issue, created a pre-installed camera lens cover to prevent invasions of privacy.
With built-in gesture recognition software, HiMirror is a hands-free smart device that connects to a growing list of applications. Whether it’s streaming music on Spotify or catching up on the morning news via your favorite Internet Radio channel, HiMirror can certainly keep you informed during your morning routine or prepping for a night on the town. With so many smart devices capable of providing real-time notifications like Amazon’s Alexa or Google’s Home, it’s difficult to recommend HiMirror as a must-have product unless you want insight into your skincare routine.
