I like it but have one--make that two--major concern(s)
on February 8, 2014
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.
