Shower Filter Review & Giveaway from Aquasana Ends 9/15



Yesterday I posted a Q&A from Aquasana regarding keeping your children hydrated during these last really hot months of Summer. Keeping our drinking water safe and clean is no easy chore so thankfully there are companies like Aquasana who take that task seriously and create great products like their wonderful (and inexpensive!!!) Drinking Water Filters.



What I am learning lately, however, is also how important it is to have pure water in our showers. Why?! Because our tap water contains high amounts of chlorine which not only dries out our skin and hair, but can also have adverse effects on our health, especially for people suffering from conditions such as asthma!

We were sent the Aquasana Shower Filter to review and I can only use one word to describe it. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!



About the Aquasana Shower Filter:

Softer skin and hair in 1 week, guaranteed! A truly amazing product. It’s like showering in natural spring water!
Voted "Best Buy" By Consumers Digest Magazine!

The Aquasana system provides the healthiest, most refreshing shower experience you will ever have... for only 20¢ a day!

Installs in seconds and provides naturally healthy water for showering. Reduces chlorine and harmful VOCs and enhances pH balance for the healthiest, most refreshing shower ever!

Comes complete with a patented 2-stage filter cartridge that will last 6 months and the deluxe "Niagara" adjustable pressure shower head. The shower head’s unique design prevents any pressure loss.

The Aquasana shower filter system uses an innovative dual-filter process. Stage 1 reduces chlorine and enhances pH balance with a natural copper/zinc mineral media called KDF-55D. Stage 2 uses a carbonized coconut shell media for the reduction of synthetic chemicals and VOCs.

Anyone who has ever swam in a chlorinated pool knows how chlorine robs moisture from skin and hair. What most people don't realize is that there is typically as much, or more, chlorine in your tap water as in most pools.

Chlorine strips the natural protective oils from skin and hair, causing excess dryness. Without the harsh influences of chlorine, you‘ll notice significant cosmetic benefits... Softer skin & hair in a week or your money back!

Your shower water will feel better, and be better for you. Aquasana promises great benefits for asthma and allergy sufferers due to the reduction of harmful chlorine vapors.

By reducing chlorine and other chemicals found in tap water, you eliminate health risks related to inhalation and skin absorption of these chemicals. Such inhalation and/or skin absorption is known to be a significant source of exposure to harmful VOCs and a leading cause of asthma and other respiratory problems.

What We Thought:

I am seriously wondering how we never knew about this product!!!!  By time I got done reading the directions, my husband already had the shower filter installed. Even after just 2 uses, my daughter's long hair was way easier to brush after her shower and it was extremely soft!!  I wasn't sure I believed the "1 week guarantee" for softer skin and hair but this shower filter is no joke! I am still amazed at the difference it has already made. I only now wish I had the shower filter with the handheld showerhead so I could use it when I am giving the baby a bath too!!  Love it!

We also got a cool glass water bottle from Aquasana! Storing your water in glass bottles is healthier AND it tastes better! I love filling this up at night and then drinking from it the next day while I am cleaning house and stuff. I squeeze some fresh lemon in it and it is such a refreshing treat!

  2. Baby stays hydrated by breastfeeding, and I stay hydrated with carbonated water (hubs installed carbonated water sytem!) in a Nathan's flip straw water bottle ( a great alternative to the Camelback straw bottle for those who don't like the bite-and-suck action).

  73. I'm making sure my son (20 months) has access to water at all times! He's a water drinker year round which is nice so I don't have to worry that he's hydrated enough. That just means that he's a heavy wetter though!
