Magnifying mirrors: How much is too much magnifying?

10 years ago

Time to replace my old Clairol magnifying mirror with the light strips down the sides. It's probably 17 years old and the lights flicker.

This will be a lighted mirror I can put on the dresser and plug in, not for permanent installation on the bathroom wall.

I have to find time to run into a Bed Bath & Beyond to check out the different magnifying options, but there are some out there that are 10x -- that seems like a lot, but maybe there are some people who want a really, really, really close-up view?

At my "advancing" age (I can see 50 from here), what I can't see, I can't stress about or be self-conscious about!
