Mirror, Mirror: Am I Fairer Than I Was Yesterday?

If you’ve ever wondered whether those facial serums you’ve been using are really working, HiMirror may be for you.

HiMirror is a smart mirror that analyzes your skin for problems like dark spots, red spots, acne, wrinkles and fine lines. It stores the information it finds into a personalized profile that only you can see and access (the mirror only responds to your face and voice) and over time, you can see whether or not that $200 cream is really helping those crow’s feet disappear.

Phair Tsai, HiMirror’s business development and PR manager, said that the company’s target demographic is females, “between 20-50 years old, fashionistas who are heavy users of beauty products.”

The most basic HiMirror will set you back $189. A version with LED lights on each side costs $259. The LED lights can be set to simulate different lighting situations, such as a brightly lit office or a darkened restaurant so makeup can be applied accordingly.
