The shower head works well, and distributes the lemon-scented vitamin C adequately. I use mine in combination with a Sprite filter. The head has extremely small openings and contains a ceramic plate which, according to the literature (and my experience bears this out), "makes water molecular cluster extremely small for easy absorption into the skin," resulting in a very silky feel. I actually prefer my standard shower head--which is also high flow, but has a much stronger stream due to larger openings--but want the vitamin C for complete chlorine elimination (between this and the Sprite).

My main concern is that the ingredients of the lemon-scented gel contained in the filter are not listed anywhere. It is produced in Korea, and would not be regulated by the FDA in any event as it isn't consumed as food; however, skin absorption is just as potent as oral consumption (if not more so, since it bypasses the liver), and by the look of the gel, it likely contains additives I'd rather not be exposed to (artificial colors and scents, I'm guessing, but there is no way of knowing without published ingredients).

If the vendor of the product is reading, I would welcome a list of ingredients as a comment to this review, if not in the body of the product description on the page. Thanks.

4/6/2015 Update: downgraded to 2 stars because it broke at the base (which is plastic... where it screws into the pipe) after just a year of use when I replaced the lemon filter and then attempted to screw the shower head back onto my shower pipe. :( I like it enough that I ordered a replacement head directly from Heaven Fresh, but for this price I wish the thing were made of stainless steel... or at least the fitting; currently, the only thing that is stainless steel is the plate at the very end of the shower (where the water comes through).

4/20/2015 Update: Heaven Fresh replaced the "ball joint" part that had broken at no charge except for shipping, so I added back a start to 3 stars.

My friend bought the Heaven Fresh HF 501 and I used it a few times at her house. I will say that the experience of the Heaven Fresh is heavenly. The water feels soft and smells good. At the time, I owned the Vitashower but was dissatisfied with the build quality, so when it came time to replace the Vitashower, I strongly considered the HF 501.

My concern is that the fragrances and dyes used in the HF 501 vitamin C cartridges may be petroleum-based or otherwise toxic. When I was considering buying the HF 501 for myself, I contacted Heaven Fresh to inquire about what is used for fragrances and dyes. The US distribution company was unable to provide any information on these ingredients. The product is from Korea and the US distributor may not have this information available. Unfortunately, not having this information leaves me to guess what the ingredients might be, thus the 1 star rating.

I did not buy the HF 501. Instead, I chose to buy the Vitamin C Handheld Inline Hand Shower Chlorine Filter - Neutra-C.

This is an incredible shower head. It replaced another head with very little effort. Standard tools, nothing special. The way the water comes through this head, it feels incredible. Far better pressure than the shower head we were using prior. The lemon scent is refreshing in the morning, and our skin feels cleaner as a result of this shower. Our showers are refreshing and vitalizing now. Would never go back. The ONLY reason I didn't give this five stars is because its could be that the water pressure is actually too good. It seems our hot water heater drains after a long shower, or two shorter showers. Going to try a flow restrictor to see if it helps with that without impacting the awesome pressure too greatly.

If that doesn't work, I'll actually consider replacing the hot water heater before I stop using this head. Maybe we'll get one of those constant hot systems and ditch the tank entirely. It's THAT good.

This shower head is DIVINE! I'm also going to order it for my mom and my sister.. it's that good. The pressure is perfect, feels just like when you go to the salon to get your hair washed. The water quality is soft and the aroma is light. Next time I might even try the lavender filter! Great product you will NEVER regret buying. I'm a believer!

This is a great shower head! It not only decreases water usage but increases water pressure! It has such a powerful spray that you get clean fast and the Vitamin C cart rages are a wonder on the skin and actually help to stop hair loss and promote new hair growth. Sears sells this for almost $200! Which is about 3x the cost you can get it from Heaven Fresh. One cartridge lasted our household, 4 months. There has been a backorder issue with replacements but those are shortly due to arrive. If you get this, I recommend that you purchase a few replacement cartridges at the same time.

We really enjoy this show and we are purchasing one for our kids barhroom. Really love the scent of the lemons and the fact that your skin is receiving a nice dose of vitamin C

Smell only lasts for the first minute or so. My wife hops in after I'm done and there is no smell till next time. Great water flow, drenches you with water. Creates a wind gust of sorts that feels nice too. Not a low flow tho so be careful about using all the hot water.

To be honest, I've only used it once, but I really like this shower head. It feels great and my hair felt much more silky after rinsing it. It is a major improvement. I do have an additional Sprite brand filter that also helps. Someone else recommend the combination of the 2 and I think it's a good idea. I generally don't do reviews unless a product is exceptionally bad or good. We'll see about longevity and how long the aromatic filter lasts, but initially it's great.

I think i may have either gotten a dud or this shower head really just isn't what everyones reviews are raving about. First off, i received this product in the mail about two weeks ago. Fast shipping and was SO excited to screw it on and hop in. Well, very easy set up, ill give it that. First day using it the lemon scent on the lowest setting was very overpowering, but i accepted it. I had gotten out of the shower to dry off and whatever is in that mystery lemon cartridge left my skin feeling very sticky and just not 'clean'. Thought maybe with the difference in shower head my skin just needed to adjust. Gave it another week , my skin just didn't feel the same. And not in a good way. I started breaking out slightly on my face [ which RARELY ever happens] and the texture of my skin on face and chest feels very strange. What this shower head is doing to my skin reminds me of the time i showered in recycled rain water in the jungle for two months. Just not right and certainly not a clean feeling. So it's been two weeks since I've been using the shower head and go figure, the part where the top of the shower head screws onto the cartridge part is spraying water all over the wall in the opposite direction. I stupidly threw out the box thinking a 70$ shower head would be 'heaven', i was wrong. How do i get a refund?
**Two stars for effort guys!
