Purchased this for my sister as she just had a standard mirror with lights around it so thought this would prove to be more beneficial. The light is brilliant with a dimmer /brightness adjustment. The added bonus of an adapter to put your phone means you are able to take pictures using the light creating a flawless image. It also has the compatibility to take a selfie with the useful adapter so you can time that perfect photo or video. This is perfect for anyone who regularly does videos, photos or make up.
