Aquabliss Shower Filter Tout

While the beauty aisle may seem like an obvious place to find the fix for itchy skin or lackluster hair, it may be time to try a different approach recommended by droves of Amazon reviewers. And you’ll have to head to the retailer’s home improvement section to get it.

Shoppers are convinced that getting shiny hair and glowing skin is as simple as adding this best-selling filter from AquaBliss to your showerhead. Over 3,000 owners gave the best-selling filter a five-star review, raving about its easy setup, dramatic (almost instant!) results, and overall value. Reviewers claim it helped them with everything from limp locks to adult acne and eczema, calling it “truly amazing” and the “best purchase ever.”

Aquabliss Shower Filter

To buy: $35;

Just like the filter in your Brita pitcher or fridge, this fixture removes pesticides, odors, dirt, chlorine, and other icky chemicals lurking in your water. Its 12-layer system even adds vitamins and minerals to your stream that may help improve the look and health of your hair, skin, and nails (and even make your hair color last longer, according to owners).

“The very first shower with this filter was a game changer,” one reviewer wrote. “My daughter’s dry skin has cleared up and my dandruff is gone. My hair is bouncy and healthy again, and my skin doesn't feel tight after showering anymore.”

“I installed this little guy about two weeks ago, and I noticed the difference from the first shower,” another reviewer chimed in. “My hair is already starting to get its body and shine back, and my skin is no longer super itchy and dry after a shower! 10/10 would recommend this to a friend.”

Reviewers from all regions of the country—including city dwellers and suburban homeowners—rave about the near-instant improvement they noticed after installing the add-on. Those who live in areas with hard water found it especially helpful (you can learn more about your area’s water through the Environmental Working Group’s tap water database).

“I live in an area with extremely hard water,” one reviewer shared. “My water was causing my skin to become super dry, [and] I cannot afford a whole house water softening system, so I thought I should give this a whirl. I immediately felt the difference with the water. I use less soap, my skin feels great, I am not dry anymore, and no longer have to bathe in lotion. I have since purchased three more for all of my shower heads.”

According to owners, the installation is surprisingly simple and fast, and requires zero tools. Plus, it can be attached to all sorts of showers, including handheld and rain shower heads.

“The installation was so easy,” one reviewer wrote. “I'm not the most handy person, but I installed this in five minutes with no issues. There was a noticeable change after the first use in the texture of my hair and scalp. I no longer have an itchy dry scalp and my hair is back to its soft nature.”

The $35 shower attachment also comes with an extra filter, ensuring you don’t have to buy a new one for a full year (each cartridge lasts for six months and replacements are $15 on Amazon). So glowing skin and healthy hair could just be a shower away.
