Hi everyone and welcome to all of you that are new to InCool Comfort.
My name is Barb and I would like to tell you how a need I had turned into an incredible journey.
I’m a busy mom of two, a long time hairstylist and I added salon owner to my resume in 2009. I try to stay in shape and in good health and most days I do that by spending a little time on my treadmill, usually before getting in the shower to start my routine to get ready for work.
Add together a sweaty body from a treadmill workout, a hot shower, a steamy bathroom and a blow dryer and you end up with a lot of heat. Then add to the mix natural changes in hormone levels that can wreak havoc with a body’s core temperature and you have even more heat to contend with.
All that steamy heat would have me perspiring again making it nearly impossible to apply my makeup.
This was a real and annoying issue for me. I bought a small fan to try and remedy the problem but it took up precious space on my vanity top and was in the way of my makeup. I had just traded my old problem for new problem.
Several years ago, I set my makeup mirror up on two large books so I could look directly into it. I don’t care to look down into my makeup mirror, I don’t think any woman does. I realized the fan I had bought was about as tall as the two stacked books so I wedged the stand for the fan under the bottom book and Ta-Da, the fan fit perfectly under the mirror right in front to the books…problem solved!
Problem solved until I wanted to tilt the fan. Because the back of the fan was up against the books all it could do is blow air straight out. I remember thinking it would be great if I could tilt the fan up and down giving me complete control over the direction of the air flow.
This all happened in June of 2011 and by September that year I had done enough research to know that my fan base for a makeup mirror was unique and I had an original idea. I made the decision to file for a provisional patent.
That’s how it started, my fantastic journey from how to solve a problem all the way to a very soon to launch patented finished product.
Please continue to follow The InCool Comfort Vanity Mirror here and on Facebook. I will be posting pictures of the finished InCool Comfort Vanity Mirror, keep you informed about when and where you can get one and tell you my story of how I brought a good idea to life.
We have all heard it before, necessity is the mother of invention!
