5 Watt A15 light bulbs for bath


I just bought a new house and found two bath mirrors in the bathroom, every one has got 6x40W incandescent bulbs, which I consider crazy.

So, I had a look around and found 5 Watt A15 CFL light bulbs that equal 25W traditional lights.
Are those bulbs suitable for bath mirrors?

Luckily, the present 6x40 bulbs are blowing on a regular basis, 3 in 4 weeks, but honestly don't know how old they were, however, can I start to replace them with the 5 Watt A15 light bulbs and have a mix CFL/traditional incandescent or do you suggest I take them all out and replace with the 5W CFL ?

Otherwise, do you have better ideas/alternatives?

Thank you
Alex
