Evolve Water Lily Eco-Luxury Showerhead (Review, Giveaway& Coupon Code)

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

When I go visit my mom in the house I grew up in, each room holds memories of my childhood. In the living room, I can picture the countless sleepovers that my friends and I had and how much fun it was to stay up late into the night giggling and chatting. In the kitchen, I remember trying to make pancakes by myself for the first time and using sugar instead of flour in the batter... at least we caught the problem before trying to cook the runny mess.

What sticks out in my mind from my mom's bathroom (that is unfortunately still a problem) is how annoying the showerhead always was. Turning the water on full blast only resulted in an uneven splutter that not only did a poor job rinsing the shampoo from my hair, but it took ages to warm up. I would end up doing any number of things throughout the house in order to spend less time standing there shivering until I could get in under the measly amount of water.

Therefore, the idea of an eco-friendly showerhead was never my thing. I assumed that they were all going to be low-flow and plain, nothing that would provide a soothing, relaxing shower while still somehow saving water (and money). Then, there was evolve.


Created by people who wanted to save time, water and energy without having to make sacrifices or behavior changes, evolve and their ShowerStart technology is the answer for those of us that want to go green but still want to enjoy a luxury shower. Sounds pretty nice, doesn't it?

But what does this mean for you? If you're part of the 75% or more of people that turn on your shower and then proceed to do other things while you wait for it to warm up, the extra hot water going down the drain is adding up in both higher utility bills and wasted water. However, the ShowerStart technology involved in evolve's showerheads solves these problems for you in three simple steps.

Step 1: Turn on your showerhead just like normal. The cold water will run out through the pipes as it begins to warm up. Step 2: Your evolve showerhead will monitor the water temperature for you and automatically lessen the water flow down to a trickle as soon as it has reached 95° F. You don't have to worry about wasting hot water! Step 3: When you're ready, flip the switch or pull the cord right on the showerhead to resume the normal flow of water for your relaxing, hot shower and hop in! Aaaaah.


We procrastinated a few days in putting up the beautiful water lily showerhead from evolve because neither my husband nor I are handy people. When I finally put my foot down and forced him in there, my husband was finished and back out of the bathroom before I even had a chance to go in to supervise. Yes, it was that easy (the water lily works with any standard shower arm) and, after experiencing my first rain shower, I was annoyed that I had missed out on a few extra days of such luxury.

There's just something about a rain showerhead that is instantly more relaxing than normal. Combine that with the maximum possible flow rate of water and a choice between rain, massage or a combination of the two and it really doesn't get much better than that. The water lily even resets itself after each shower so that the ShowerStart technology is in use every time the water is turned on.

The high quality of evolve's showerheads is evident in the solid brass fittings and anti-clog nozzles (standard on all of their showerheads) as well as the excellent performance the water lily has shown every time I've used it. If you're looking for the same strong water pressure that you've always enjoyed - now it just gets hot and waits until you're ready!

Save water, energy consumption and money with any of evolve's showerheads, or, if you're happy with the showerhead that you currently have, simply attach their ladybug adapter and have the ShowerStart technology go to work for you, too. Whether you are looking for a handheld or a rain showerhead, chrome or brushed nickel, evolve's showerhead prices start at just $39.95. There is sure to be one to fit your budget, lifestyle and whichever shade of green that you may be - or aspire to be.

If you haven't already been convinced, for the next week enter the discount code Xenia121809 and receive $10 off your order at evolve! One of these fantastic items with a coupon? Now that's luxury at it's finest. Hurry though, this code will only work through December 22, 2009!

One person will no longer have to worry about taking the time to brush their teeth, catch an extra word or two of the morning news or answer ten more of their preschooler's "Why? Why, Mommy? Why?" questions while the shower is running, because, thanks to the generosity of evolve...

One person will win an evolve water lily eco-luxury showerhead 
of their own! ARV $75!

I learned that it's better to offer people alternatives that won't create too much of a change in their habits than expect people to change their behaviors simply for a cause. In other words, change has to be incorporated to adapt to people rather than people adapting to change in order for the change to be successful.
