My Foldaway Mirror Review

If you’ve struggled to find the right vanity mirror, the makers of My Foldaway Mirror may have just the item for you. This folding vanity mirror is actually two mirrors and an accessory organizer.

To use My Foldaway Mirror, you simply extend the mirror from the base. You can then choose between two mirrors, a standard 1x mirror, and a 10x magnification mirror, which are accessed by swiveling the entire mirror 180 degrees. Both mirrors are illuminated with an LED light border.

When you are finished, My Foldaway Mirror will collapse back down into the base for easy storage and transportation. When the mirror is extended there are compartments where you can store small accessories such as hair ties or clips. I did find, however, that when there are items in the compartments, they don’t stay in place if the closed mirror is moved or shaken.

The overall size of the extended unit is 13 inches, although the mirrors themselves are not particularly large. In the case of the magnification mirror, that’s probably not necessarily an important point. I’m not sure that My Foldaway Mirror will replace a larger, more stationary, vanity mirror. I do think, however, that this is perhaps one of the best travel vanity mirrors you will find. It weighs more than I expected, so if weight or space is a factor in your luggage, that could be a small concern.

In my tests (below) with help from the 2-Cent Chicks, we found that the mirror didn’t extend smoothly as shown in the commercial, but more like a ratchet motion. The overall materials feel somewhat cheap.

This unit requires 4 AA batteries, which aren’t included. There seems to be an AC plug in the front of the unit, although there is no mention of an adapter in the instructions. If you have realistic expectations, you may like this device.

My Foldaway Mirror rolled out to stores in summer 2017.

Alternatives

My Foldaway Mirror is quite similar to a popular item on Amazon, the Floxite Lighted Folding Vanity and Travel Mirror. The product costs about $45 and has a 4 star rating among hundreds of reviews. If you’re looking for a less expensive option, you may want to look at the $20 Kedsum folding makeup mirror.

    I would like to know the exact size of the mirror before ordering. It doesn’t say if its the size of a hand compact or what. I find it very odd that this information is not mentioned, because its definately important!!!

    • Jean Austin

      That’s a good question

    • The entire unit, when unfolded, stands 13 inches. The mirror itself is 5 inches in diameter.
