Ok, I am not going to lie, I am a straight up SUCKER for advertising and I have been know the make the odd impulse purchase. I think I get this from my dad, who, in earlier years, could not be let loose in Town on his own as previously he had come back with Sky TV and a fridge freezer when he was essentially gong for milk!
So it should come a no surprise to know that I bought this Stone Stream Shower from an INSTAGRAM ad whilst I was browsing one morning. I mean, I hadn’t even got out of bed! It promised that it would increase shower pressure by “up to 200%” and would basically change my showering life. SOLD to the gullible girl who had just got paid.
The purchase price was £19.99, but of course as I started to order it was an additional £5 for a shower head with 3 x settings (Rainfall, Jet and Combo), OK I thought, and then an additional £5 if I wanted it within 5-7 days. Well in for a penny, in for £30. It arrived this morning wrapped in a postal bag and even though it looked exactly as described, I was still skeptical. I have never seen the ad in Instagram since so in one way, I was just chuffed it showed up!
It was very easy to install as I literally just unscrewed the old shower head and screwed in the new one. I filmed the difference in the streams, before I took an actual shower:
As you can see from the video, it definitely does increase the water pressure, even though the shower head itself is smaller. The really noticeable thing when I took a shower was the very soft way the water hit my skin. Even the middle jet was still quite soft and had a much nicer flow. M has yet to use it, but for me it was a hit! The pressure is better and the Stone Stream gives a much more gentle and relaxing experience. It was easy to fit and basically, does what it says it should.
So as an impulse buy, I am giving this 9/10 and the only reason it loses a mark, is that I think at some point in the future, we might have buy replacement stones. Otherwise, me likey.
p.s. it’s worth noting that our shower is Electric and is on the top floor of a 3 storey house.
