Softer Skin & Shinier Hair with the Aquasana Shower Filter Giveaway

Have you ever wondered what comes through your faucets at home? It’s not something that I have put a lot of thought into, but I can see how we may not all have the cleanest water. I can definitely say that I hate drinking water from my bathroom faucets. I don’t know why or what it is about the water, but I think it has a funny taste.

As I have done a little reading, I have learned some facts about tap water, that may be disconcerting to some. According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), there are 316 contaminants found in nation’s tap water, and more than half have no safety standards. I’m sure that many of these contaminants really aren’t detrimental to our health, but surely some of them could have a role into how we look and feel. I honestly just don’t like the fact that our tap water could be polluted with “unregulated” contaminants.


Beyond drinking water, I wanted to dig a little deeper and see if showering with filtered water would make a difference. The BPA-free Aquasana AQ-4100 Shower Filter brags that it removes harmful synthetic chemicals and chlorine in your water, leaving you with softer skin and shinier hair. Who can say no to that? This particular Shower Filter is made up of a two-stage filter system that uses a combination of copper-zinc oxidation media and coconut shell carbon to reduce 91% of the chlorine in your water, and also reduces synthetic chemicals and enhances pH balance. Aside from the softer and shinier hair, some people have discovered reduced asthma symptoms, just by using this filtering system.

Aquasana Shower Filter

I had my husband take off our old shower head in my son’s/guest bathroom, and attach the Aquasana Shower Filter.  The installation process went fairly quickly, which is always a bonus. My son did ask what the funny looking thing hanging from the shower was, but hey, it pays to look and FEEL beautiful! My son has been using showering with filterered water for a couple of weeks now, and while he doesn’t notice a difference (he’s 9), I do! He had mildly rough skin on his low back – GONE, and I honestly think his hair looks more vibrant, and curlier when he gets out of the shower. He has always had some curls, so I’m happy to see that they’re not gone completely. Now I’m wanting to use his shower to test it out!
