Aquasana Shower Filter Review {Giveaway}

As many of you know, my family is on a mission to reduce the toxins in our home. We have come a long way so far, but I continue to learn how to take it a step further. One surprising fact I learned during my research was that the tap water in our home likely contains chlorine and other contaminants. We have always used a water filter for our drinking water, but what about the water we bathe in every day?

I began to research options for shower filters, and came across Aquasana. Turns out, Aquasana is local to me right here in  North Texas. They are the number one rated manufacturer of home water filtration systems in America. So of course, I was thrilled when they sent me an Aquasana Shower Filter to experience in my home.

Health Benefits:
With the realization that more than double the levels of chlorine and other synthetic chemicals (SOCs/VOCs) enter our body through skin absorption and inhalation of steam while showering than from drinking water, the need and benefits of shower filtration have become very obvious. Shower filtration is one of the best and easiest ways to reduce our harmful exposure to chlorine and other tap water contaminants.

I had never even considered the impact a shower could have on our bodies, but since I have experienced dry skin for years and one of my children has eczema, I was eager to put the filter to the test. My husband installed it within minutes. My first thought was that our water pressure would be affected but I noticed no difference. The shower head also includes a fancy massage feature with a quick twist, which was a pleasant surprise!

We have now been using the Aquasana filter for a few weeks and I can actually report a difference in my hair and skin. I no longer have to instantly reach for lotion after a shower. My super fine, tangle-prone hair is easier to comb out and noticeably softer. I am so pleased with the changes I am considering purchasing additional filters for the other bathrooms in our home. Anything that benefits my family’s health is a worthy investment in my book.

As for the cost factor, an Aquasana Shower Filter is a respectable $84.99, available only from their website. Filters must be replaced every six months, and they offer an auto-ship program for cartridges, which I appreciate.

Aquasana has provided me with an additional Shower Filter to give away to one lucky reader! This filter promises to remove 91% of chlorine in your shower water for softer skin, shinier hair and a healthier shower.

  1. Wow! I never thought about the chemicals during a shower either. I have extrmely dry skin, too, and I never thought about the chemicals in the water being the culprit. I would love to have one of these. Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. Cheril Lindenberg says:

    I love that this filter has no change in the water pressure! We have very hard water where I live, not to mention that the water is fairly contaminated by all sorts of agricultural pollutants. Thanks for the opportunity!

  3. Wow — what a great idea!!! I have just become aware of this issue and a product like this would be awesome to own.

  4. This sounds like a cool, new product. It will work out well for us because my daughter has eczema and this time of year is killer on her skin.

  5. Emily Freelove says:

    Having clean water is a big deal , even if it’s shower/bath water. Great idea and I would love to win one!

  6. I would love to get one of these. I’ve never thought about all the chemicals in the water other than drinking. We have hard water and I would love to see the difference this makes.

  64. Elizabeth says:

    This looks like a wonderful product. We have hard water in the area that I live. After showers our skin is extremely dry, this would really benefit my daughter who suffers from eczema.

  67. I guess I never thought much about the water we shower in, because we don’t drink it. I never realized that it was something I should think about too! Maybe if I owned one my daughter’s ezcema would get better! Thanks!

  89. I was recently married and moved to Michigan with my husband. Our home is supplied with well water that we are not able to drink and the chemicals we have to use to soften our water leaves our skin horribly dry. The poor water combined with the dry air means our skin is taking a beating! I didn’t even know this product was available, but thanks for the opportunity to try it out!

  90. I hate how harsh are water is! Id love anything that could potentially make it better!!!! Id love to give this a shot!!!

  116. I am interested because I have psoriasis on my legs and my husband has severe problems with scalp dryness. I think that getting the toxins out of the water would be a very good way to continue trying to clean up our home environment.

  117. Amanda Carter says:

    I would love to take one more step towards a healthier home. This sounds like a great way to do it!

  121. My husband is in the Air Force and we live on a military installation. There usually is a lot of testing done on or near military posts and because of that the water is heavily chlorinated. Whenever we shower we feel like we are in a swimming pool because of the strong chlorine smell. We do use a water purification system for our drinking water, but it would be very nice to take a better shower! I’m sure it would help out the eczema my 2 children have!

  122. I like Kingdom First Mom on Facebook and also Aquasana

  123. We struggle with eczema and dry skin in our family too. I would love the opportunity to try this product for free!

  124. I have extremely dry skin too. Like all the others i did not think is from the water. I also have eczema and also one of my kids has it too. Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in bringing us great deals. Thanks to one of your posts last week I was able to get 8 cream cheese with the coupon that you posted.

  147. Oh, how I NEED a filter on my shower. We live on the Rio Grande River and you would NOT believe how horrible our water is! It bleaches our clothes because of the chlorine and other chemicals. I am seriously allergic to chlorine (can’t get in most pools and never a hot tub) and my skin and scalp have been in such bad shape since we moved down here. We have been researching showerhead filters for months-trying to find the best one.

  176. Would love to try this as I have read about reducing chemicals in our lives.

  177. Our water has a TON of chlorine in it and is hard. It really does a number on my hubby’s skin as well as my and my kid’s skin. We put TONS of lotion on and after just a little while, it looks as if we never put any on at all. I have been looking into getting a filtration system for a while, but we are on a tight budget, so this would definitely be something I would like to win!

  178. Stephanie Benefield says:

    I would love to own one of these Aquasana shower filters because my hubby has a chlorine allergy, and hives if he is exposed to too much of it. He works away from home on a boat where it’s not an issue for him there because of the filtration/water treatment setup on the boat. But I feel so sorry for him when he comes home and has to try to shower here after being exposed to nil levels at work.

  185. I would love to try this because I have psoriasis and chemicals and other agents added to water tend to make my spots worsen more than do them any good. I don’t know if this would help my skin but if it did it would be so nice to not be embarrassed of it when I go out.

  186. I never thought about this until your post mentioned it. I think it would help me keep my children’s skin healthy.

  187. I would like one of these filters! I just got married in September, and as a result I moved out of my parents house (that has an absolutely glorious filtration system) into a condo in a different city. The water is so bad that my skin has been developing boils! Grossss I know. My dr said it from the water mixing with bacteria and upon showering and the opening of pores, the bacteria is entering my blood stream :(
    Not Good! I’m glad to have been introduced to this product and I hope to become more acquainted with it soon enough!

  190. HI! Thank you so much for posting this. I have been looking for one of these. We just recently rented out a duplex in the country and have extremley hard water. I noticed I started to have really bad eczema, I itch all day long and lotion doesn’t help. I can see it on my daughter as well! We bought a filter for our faucet and that takes out all of the sulfur and other chemicals so we can drink it. I had a aha moment a few weeks ago when I thought to research a filter for our shower head. It would be great to win this for my family since money is a bit tight these days, thank you for the great advice!

    We try everything we can to keep toxins away from us and this would be so helpful. When we use to live at my parents house they had this filter and it honestly made a difference! Since we are out on our own we no longer have this luxury and the difference we feel now is horrible for us and our daughter. With the lovely economy we are not in a position to buy something like this. We would be so EXCITED to have this.

    I was just discussing this idea with my mother yesterday about how much chlorine we absorb through our skin in the shower. I didn’t know there was any cost effective way of reducing it until now. Thanks. I would love to win the filter.

    I signed up for e-mails and liked aquasona.

  203. I recently posted the following as a Facebook status, and one of my friends commented to let me know about this giveaway!

    “So I just walked into the bathroom and was assaulted by a strong chlorine smell. I rarely use bleach to clean (I usually use vinegar or other natural cleaners), so I was confused, until I realized that one of the kids had forgotten to drain the bathtub after taking a bath. It seriously smelled like a swimming pool! We filter our drinking water, but that experience makes me want to invest in a filter for the tub, too.”

  205. I have always heard the benefits but have never had the money around to try one out. Both me and my daughter deal with very dry skin in the winter and I am sure this would help out lots!!

    I’ve never really thought about it before until reading the email… My skin is always so dry after I get out of the shower. It would be wonderful not to have this problem! Great for little ones too!

  207. Denise Wilson says:

    Wonder if this is the cause of my dry skin? Sounds like a good product. Would like to try it.

  209. My son has eczema and occasionally croup. We try to have him sit in the bathroom during our warm showers so that he can get the benefit of the steam to breathe in. A filter would calm my fears of what he’s breathing in and perhaps help with his dry skin.

  210. I’m subscribed via email.

  211. Who ever thought about the effects of shower water???? While I would love it for my dry skin, I would give it to my brother in law who suffers from eczema. I would love to see the benefit for that!

  219. Wow, I never really thought about the chlorine in the water, and yes our town has a lot of chlorine in our water. My 4 year old also has eczema, and I feel sorry for her since she is always itching in the winter with her dry skin. She also gets a lot of tangles in her long hair, but she insists on keeping it long. She is a very girly girl who loves her long hair and wears fancy dresses, etc. I never thought about the water affecting her hair. We use conditioner in the bath, and also put on a leave in conditioner when I comb her hair, but nothing seems to work very well. I would LOVE to try the filter. It sounds wonderful!!!

  220. I’d like this filteration system for the softer skin. My skin is incredibly dry, especially in the winter.

  221. Subscribe by email.

  222. I would love to own a filter simply to see if I can tell a difference in the way my hair and skin feel.

  223. I too have never thought about the water in the shower. I love this idea.

  224. Wow, this sounds amazing. We think about the chemicals in the water we drink, but I haven’t really thought about the bath water. My husband and I and one of our daughters each have such dry skin. I would love to try this out and see how it helps!

  225. Kathie VanDeraa says:

    I have tried other things to try to solve skin and scalp problems. I never considered that the problem could be in the water. It would be a HUGE help if I was able win.

  232. I would love to try this as my daughter has eczema.

  233. I have wanted to get a shower filter for a while, but it just hasn’t been at the very top of my priority list. I would love to win one – that would be great!

    I’m wondering, does it only work with the shower head that comes with it? Is it a low-flow shower head? Or could you install a low-flow shower head onto the filter? I guess I should just check out their website, huh?

    Thanks for this great giveaway!

    I’ve never even thought about the chlorine in the shower water before! I would LOVE to try this!! I like Kingdom First Mom on facebook! I like Aquasana on FB!

  235. We have hard water that is loaded with minerals which deposit on the walls and tub. I would love to have a shower head with a filter that would help keep my skin and bathroom mineral free.

  236. I would like to have one bc I have a 2 year old with bad eczema and this would help him out!!

  237. Anne Alexander says:

    I would like to win this filter to help clear up my skin and for updating the house

  238. This is such a great idea! I never thought about it. My son has eczema and my husband and I have dry skin.

  239. I would love to try this! We considered a whole-home filtration system, but it was too expensive. I don’t think I realized that this type of option existed!

  240. I subscribe, too!

  241. I am always careful what my family eats and drinks. I always wanted a filter but never got around to it. This would be great to try!

  242. Stacey Morgan says:

    My family and I have been making steps to change our lifestyle to healthy and organic. We’ve discussed how important a GOOD water filtration system would be for the house, but it’s too expensive right now. The water filter for the shower would be a huge blessing. Here’s to actual HEALTHY water!

  248. Cindy Chapman says:

    I am also a fan of yours on facebook and receive your emails. Just like many people on here, I never thought of having bad water in the shower but it really makes sense to me about our family now. I have a 15 year son, a 12 year old son and they both have eczema and both have a problem with very dry scalp. Being at their age, they really hate it. Going to school and worrying that the dead dry skin in their hair will show up and they might get made fun of is hard for me. Also I have a severe problem with dry skin, it doesn’t matter whether it’s summer or winter. And my husband has psorisis on his scalp that we have to treat with prescribed medicine. Seeing what you have said about the shower head filter makes me think there is hope my family. We have 3 bathrooms with showers in our home and if we could win this giveaway I would defineitly place it in my boys’ bathroom then if it works for them, I will for sure buy 2 more and tell everyone I know about this product. Thanks.

  249. I would love to filter out all of the chemicals that come into contact with my family. I always think about our food, household cleaners, drinking water, etc…but not so much the water we bathe in daily!

  250. I want this filter because I have asthma and I can immediately feel my breathing change when I get in the shower — I’m sure I’m breathing all kinds of junk in our water that makes it worse!

    Blessings,

    I saw a demonstration where the woman tested tap water in a glass for chlorine, then stirred it with her finger for 10 minutes and tested again – the chlorine had been absorbed into her skin! That’s why I’d love to win this.

    So excited to learn about this! My family is renting a house with hard water and all my family right now is complaining about ichy skin. Would love to win this! I have signed up for your emails, and liked both Keeping the Kingdom and Aquasana on facebook and hope to hear on Feb 5th that I was chosen! Thanks!

  285. The chlorine is so strong in our water it burns our eyes. This issue with our water has only appeared in the last several months. I don’t know what changed, but obviously something is different!
    I have been shopping for shower head water filters but I am confused by the mixed reviews and all of the information that exists about these products. I have been looking at this product closely. It would be nice to have an opportunity to give it a try before purchasing another product for the other shower in our home.

  286. I like you on facebook.

  287. Our water is hard, we have had an independent company come out and confirm it. We had a water softening agent for a while but it quit working and I would love to have some sort of new filtration system. Thanks for the giveaway!

  288. I receive you daily via emails.

  289. My mom has a filtration in her shower, and when we stay there and I use the shower my skin and hair feel so much better. I would love to have that clean water for my whole family to enjoy the great benefits of the water filtration. Thanks!

  290. just did the ‘like’ on the two sites you mentioned. any chance there’s enough filters for me to get one?? Thanks, Jj
