Many men prefer to shave in the shower rather than stand at the bathroom sink. Not only is shaving in the shower convenient, it actually reduces the mess and the time it takes to clean up after your morning grooming routine.

Some users say that the mirror isn’t really fog free as you need to keep splashing hot water on its surface, otherwise it fogs up.

The mirror itself isn’t glass, so if it falls, it won’t break and it is lightweight.
People also report that the anti-fog coating doesn’t last long, which may or may not be due to users cleaning the mirror, as it should only be cleaned with plain water and a clean soft cloth.
However, it can be stained by spots caused by calcium in hard water so regular cleaning is advisable.
While there might not be an anti-fogging mirror which is going to be perfect for all users, these 6 shaving mirrors do offer people an easier way to shave in the shower, resulting in a closer and more convenient shave with less mess to clean up from their morning grooming.
