A little while ago I was asked to trial a new product that I have to say intrigued the hell out of me. It was called Aroma Sense and is an Australian patented shower head which releases Vitamin C while you shower, eliminates chlorine and generates negative ions which kills bacteria and odour.
I was also told that the shower head generates stronger spray water pressure but uses much less water than an ordinary shower head.
With these facts, I couldn't wait to try out my new shower head and had hubby install it as soon as it arrived.
Here is what the attachment for a hand-held shower head on the end of a flexible hose looks like once installed:
• Over 400,000 Negative Ions Helps Improve The Body's Immunity
• Eliminates Choline From Tap Water
• Vitamin C, Equivalent To 3,000 Lemons
• Moisturize Your Skin
• Helps To Boost Your Skin's Firmness, Strength And Self-Repairing
• Anti-Bacterial Balls remove 99.9% of E.Coli
• Helps With Eczema
• Aroma To Give A Relaxed Bathing Experience
• Improves Hair Condition
Ok, so I really love the concept of this shower head but have to say I was expecting a little more 'aroma'. You do get a really nice fresh burst of citrus when the shower is first turned on but it seems to disappear pretty quickly and isn't really noticeable at all while you are in the process of showering.
I would love it if the scent was a little stronger and lingered in the air a bit more while you were showering to really make you feel like you're experiencing the benefits of aromatherapy like it claims.
Also, as far as the water pressure is concerned, it definitely has higher pressure than the water-saver head we had on the shower previously but the stream is concentrated pretty much in the circle shape of the shower head so I feel like I have to stand very straight and still to make sure I am always under the water stream as it doesn't spray out in a fan-like way that most other shower heads do. This is something that we are kind of used to now though so it doesn't bother me as much any more.
The great thing is that the aroma filter cartridges are replaceable and are meant to last a 4-person family around 2-3 months. They are super easy to remove and replace and are housed in a clear tube so you can easily see at a glance how much product is left in the cartridge and whether it needs to be replaced.
There are currently seven different filters available: scentless, pine, rose, lavender, lemon, jasmine, and eucalyptus and it also comes in a fixed shower head version as well.
Overall, I think this is a great concept and if a few little things could be tweaked, such as the amount of scent you get and the way the head sprays the stream of water I think it would be an awesome product.
