Remember when you were a kid and you’d sneak a flashlight into your bedroom to read under the covers until you just couldn’t keep your eyes open any longer? If only the Eye Candy Magnifier was around sooner, you could have kept reading all night long.
Luckily, now you can! Whether you’re still reading under the covers or cozied up on your couch with your favorite throw blanket, don’t let dim light hold you back any longer. The BulbHead Eye Candy Magnifier will have you reading for hours past your bedtime. We tested it out to see if it’s worth the hype, and here’s what you need to know.
One of the benefits of the Eye Candy Magnifier is that it’s a two-in-one. First, it’s an ultra-bright, full-page magnifying glass. If your eyes start to tap out on you like ours do, this magnifying glass might just be your secret weapon.
The glass magnifies text up to three times its size to give your eyes the boost they may need to keep reading effortlessly. Whether you’re reading a fine print novel or doing the crossword in dim lighting, the magnifying glass claims to be the perfect tool to help.
Second, the Eye Candy Magnifier is also a flashlight. Dim lighting can often make it difficult to read in the evening, so this device is meant to solve both problems at once. It may be worth keeping one in your nightstand for easy access — you might just find it helpful for navigating to the bathroom in the middle of the night, too.
But the alleged benefits don’t stop there. This magnifier is also equipped with an anti-glare screen so you can enjoy adjustable brightness without having to worry about an annoying glare causing you to squint.
Not only does the Eye Candy Magnifier do two jobs, but it does them both pretty well. According to the packaging, it’s an optical-grade lens that magnifies 300%, which is the perfect size to read small text without making it so large that you can’t keep a good reading pace. We can’t tell you how much it’s reduced our eye strain, especially when we read before bed.
Plus, the LED lights are adjustable, so you can dim or increase the brightness as needed. Whether you need a slight boost when reading in the shade or full brightness when journaling before bed, this magnifier has it all.
While the Eye Candy Magnifier is an excellent tool to keep by your nightstand, it’s lightweight enough that you can take it with you on trips, too! At only 3.3 ounces, it’s hardly noticeable in your purse, luggage, or backpack. Whether you’re just taking a trip to your local library or coffee shop to enjoy your favorite novel or going on a week-long vacation, you don’t want to forget this handy tool.
The magnifier is especially helpful for reading when you’re traveling via airplane. When the lights are off, the last thing you want to do is turn on the overhead light and disturb other people who are sleeping or resting around you. Luckily, with the Eye Candy Magnifier, you can have all the light you need without interrupting anyone else’s nap. Just make sure you don’t forget it on the plane!
Not only is the Eye Candy Magnifier an effective two-in-one tool, but it has a cute design, too. The border is a rainbow swirl that reminds us of a candy cane or gumballs, which is extra clever with the name “Eye Candy.” It looks like candy, and it’s great for your eyes. But, fair warning, you might develop a hankering for a sweet treat while you use it!
If you’re looking for a more sleek or sophisticated design, this might not be the magnifying glass for you — it’s not exactly subtle. But if you’re looking for a fun, whimsical design that reminds you of your younger self sneaking your favorite book underneath the covers, this is a no-brainer.
Despite how cute and charming this magnifying glass is, it’s surprisingly durable. The colorful border is made out of sturdy plastic, which helps for keeping the product affordable and lightweight. It’s also stood up well to any wear and tear as we’ve dropped it or knocked it off our nightstands a few times. The interior is made of glass, so it’s important to use care not to break it — but it can easily withstand everyday use at home and on the go.
For this fairly durable, two-in-one product, the price is $19.99 per magnifying glass, which we felt was a great deal. Sure, you might be able to find a magnifying glass at a hardware store for a little cheaper, but they’re becoming harder and harder to find these days, and the options are limited. Not to mention, the ones at your hardware store won’t come with a powerful, anti-glare flashlight built in!
So, is $20 worth a magnifying glass? For a two-for-one product, we say absolutely! Plus, the convenience of being able to ship it right to your front door is an added benefit.
It’s also the perfect way to send someone you love a surprise gift in the mail. Do you have any friends that would enjoy this cute magnifying flashlight? If so, ship them a gift in the mail — no wrapping or postage necessary! You can even order the two or three-pack option to have extras at your home for your guests.
Plus, this tool comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you’re not completely satisfied with the product within 30 days of your purchase, you can rest assured knowing you’ll get your money back. That always helps put our mind at ease when springing for new products.
The Eye Candy Magnifier offers two tools in one cute package, is durable enough to withstand daily wear and tear, and conveniently ships right to your door. So, is it worth it? We say yes! It’s such a handy little tool to have around, you might just find yourself wanting another one.
It’s hard to find another product like this one. It magnifies so well, has adjustable LED lights that you can dim or brighten when necessary, and it’s so portable and lightweight. We would recommend this magnifying glass to all of our friends, and we recommend it to you, too!
One thing that’s important to know before you buy it is that this device requires three AAA batteries, which aren’t included in the package. Something’s gotta power that flashlight, after all. Be sure to get your AAA batteries when you order your magnifying glass so you can use it right away. And if you’re giving this whimsical tool as a gift, you may even consider throwing in a pack of batteries as a bonus!
