As it turns out, shower mirrors are great gadgets

Prior to living with my husband, I’ve never given much thought to who might require the services of a reflective surface while showering. As a woman, the regions of my body that require hair removal aren’t anywhere close to my face, therefore I’m not someone who needs a mirror in the shower as I’m not exactly shaving my beard down on a daily basis.

My husband, on the other hand, is an industrial painter, and he is unable to have any sort of significant facial hair in order for his respirator to properly fit his face.

Blaine, for his entire life, has been shaving over top of the bathroom sink, looking in the mirror. Inevitably, he makes an absolute mess despite his best efforts to keep his beard hair retained, but it’s pretty well impossible. Randomly one day, Blaine mentioned to me how useful it would be to have a mirror in the shower so he could shave in there, and because I absolutely agreed, I figured Amazon would have something that would suffice.

Sure enough, they sure did, and so, for the first time in my life, I found myself not only shopping for a shower mirror, but further, purchasing one.

I’m not going to lie, it is a bit weird seeing my own face while I’m taking a shower, but in the context of using it to shave one’s face, Blaine says it’s been great. The mirror is mounted on a suction cup with a moveable arm to position the mirror any way you wish, and the mirror is made from a material that doesn’t fog up while showering. I paid under $20 for the thing, and thus far, it’s worth it.

Bonus feature? Underneath the mirror are little grooves to hang your razor off of so it doesn’t continually sit in water and allow for rust to form.
