Nico: Today, we’re gonna be testing out the ShowrShield.
I found the ShowrShield on Etsy, and what it is is basically a headband with a shield attached to it so that you can wash your entire body, wash your hair in the shower, and not get your face wet.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to shower with a full face of makeup on? Neither have I, but the inventor of the ShowrShield said that that was what led her to create this product. She was sick and tired of gettin’ in the shower, ruining her makeup, and then having to fix it after.
I have no idea why she was doing it that way or why she didn’t just do it after, but I figured it’d be fun to try it myself with a full face of makeup on in the shower.
There are a lot of other uses for the ShowrShield though. They can help protect eyelash extensions, microbladed brows, and makeup. It says it’s used by individuals with tactile sensory hypersensitivity with water, and it says that elderly consumers use a ShowrShield as it reduces disorientation by preventing water spray, shampoo, and soap from directly getting into your eyes.
I’m gonna be evaluating the ShowrShield on three things: how easy it was to use, is it really one size fits all, and did it actually keep my face dry in the shower? Here’s what happened when I took the ShowrShield home and tried to shower with a full face of makeup.
Because the ShowrShield had those adjustable Velcro straps, you can adjust it to basically any head size that you got. Big head, little head, you could fit it in this. It ended up fitting my head, so I’m gonna give it an A-plus for one-size-fits-allness.
Once I had it firmly strapped to my head, then it came to the real test: actually taking a shower with it.
Ahh, I’m really scared!
I started washing my hair and was really impressed when I could feel nothing dripping down from my hairline into my face, like, I was in there, I was under that shower, I was scrub, scrubbin’ away, nothing.
The only place I really, really felt water coming in through was actually this area, my jawline downward, but that’s also a place where makeup could be really easy to fix. Getting this area wet isn’t as bad as getting my eye makeup wet or ruining my lipstick. This is where the important stuff is, so that was fine.
I was really nervous to rinse out my hair. I didn’t really wanna test my luck, but even standing straight up and not leaning my head back to purposely prevent water from coming in, it was doing a great job of keeping everything out.
Then I moved on to my conditioning and detangling. I was terrified that my brush was just gonna kinda rip open the Velcro in the back, but that also stayed in place the entire time.
After I detangled and washed all the conditioner out of my hair, I got out of the shower and took the ShowrShield off. Immediately I noticed that nothing was different. The makeup was exactly the same as when I got into the shower, so I was very pleasantly surprised.
The ShowrShield is one of those products that you see and it looks like a very gimmicky, as-seen-on-TV type of product that you think is gonna totally suck. I am very happy to say that this time it totally worked and actually did what it said it was gonna do. My face was completely dry.
Because the head strap has Velcro attached to it, it can fit a lot of different head shapes, head sizes, you can adjust it however you want to.
You don’t need a whole list of instructions on how to do it to actually do it. It’s super easy to figure out and get onto your head, so I didn’t struggle with any part of this process at all.
The literal only problem I had with the ShowrShield was that once you take it off, you do have these line indents on your forehead because of the little rubber that’s on it that keeps the water from hitting your face.
That is the only thing that I didn’t love about it. It’s made with the same rubbery stuff that’s at the bottom of showers to keep the water from escaping. If you can see yourself using this product over and over again, I think the $14.95 price tag is totally worth it because it actually does work.
