Your personalise skin assistant: LG Magic Mirror!

The new LTE Magic Mirror, jointly developed by LG U+ and Hanssem, analyzes skin conditions and recommends solutions. It uses a high-definition camera to analyze your pores and wrinkles, providing a full diagnosis of your skin’s condition in real-time. Instead of visiting the dermatologist (often), try LG’s Magic Mirror at home and see if it works for you!

Every one of us probably had times when you stared into the mirror wondering, “What should I do about my makeup today?” The pimples are killing, or you just can’t wait to get off work and visit the dermatologist. However, this is all talking old school. LG U+ has created a Magic Mirror that will become your biggest life savior. Being only manufactured in Korea, the LTE Magic Mirror doesn’t just provide information about the weather as you brush your teeth. Instead, it analyzes your skin and gives you tips about how to fix your beauty problems. It will analyze your pores and wrinkles using high-definition cameras installed inside the internal drive of the mirror. But just remember, LG U+ highly cautions that it is not a medical device and it is not responsible if its recommendations cause you to break out (or worse). You are responsible for your own skin and use of facial products.

The use of the mirror requires a subscription to LG U+ HOME loT (Internet of Things) service. When offering recommendations for products, the WIFI-enabled mirror needs to sync real-time updates such as local weather conditions and current makeup trends. For example, the magic mirror will suggest more moisturizers on drier days and recommended makeup styles.

The only downside of this innovative item is that it is expensive and only offered in South Korea. The mirror costs $811.00 (999,000 KRW) with a two-year subscription. It is only for sale at Hanssem stores, and because of the LG U+ HOME IoT mandatory service requirement, it won’t work in other countries. “In addition, because the skin is dependent on local conditions based on the current solutions, this product is not suited for foreigners,” according to LG U+. So if you want to use the magic mirror, you would have to reside in South Korea, or wait until this product launches in your home country.
