My husband recently made the switch to an old fashioned double edged safety razor from an electric shaver. So this was something that has a very practical use in my home.
The mirror is the same kind of shatter resistant plastic that is used for some locker mirrors, foil like and highly reflective. The mirror lifts out of the holder to fill with warm water to keep water from condensing and fogging the surface. There is a small LED light, but that doesn't get used often. The base is plastic, and looks heavier and more substantial than you'd guess by the weight.The razor holes are lined with a rubber like flexible gasket which fits both my slim razor and his thicker safety razor handles. It comes with two methods for hanging- sticky tape or suction cups. It's on my plastic shower wall with the suction cups and has stayed on there just fine.
It's been wonderful. I asked my husband what he'd rate it on a scale of 1-5 and he said 5. Instead of leaning over the sink to shave, he's able to do it in the shower when the hair is nice and soft. Safety razors need more attention than cartridge type razors or electric shavers and this is working out just great for him. I use it mostly for making sure I got all my make up off and as a place to keep my razor. I went 4 stars because I wish it were a little thicker to make for a larger water reservoir and the plastic mirror does have a little bit of distortion. But because of how well this works, 4.5 stars. Recommended, especially if you use a safety razor.
