It's time you confidently walk around with a clear vision knowing your light radiates, your voice matters, and the dream inside you is yours to cultivate and bring to life.

Our tap water can’t be that bad… can it?

Before we get started I want to note I know how it can feel to learn about tap water, or any of the other everyday things that have become toxic in our modern world, and feel super overwhelmed, which is why part of me is cringing right now. I want you to know that I am not here to spread fear, and I am so grateful for those who spoke out about tap water so I could learn more and decide to make different choices for our family, because it’s just our reality… but at least now we can make informed decisions.

OK SO… to begin, did you know that your skin is your largest organ?? And despite what most people think it’s not as much a barrier to the outside world as it is an interface WITH the outside world. That means certain things can come in and out. In fact, for some things it’s quite like a giant sponge!

It doesn’t take long for it to soak in toxins, like chlorine, that can come from our environment, especially tap water when we are enjoying our hot showers. (not to mention how much gets breathed in with the steam)

Unfortunately, most municipal water supplies are contaminated with harmful toxins. In fact, an analysis by the Environmental Working Group found over 320 harmful chemicals, linked to cancer, adverse birth and reproduction outcomes, impaired brain development and a revolving door of other deleterious health impacts. Contaminants commonly found in regular water include heavy metals, pesticides, petrochemicals, pharmaceutical compounds, endocrine-disrupting substances, and PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances)

Knowing this, purifying our water became one of our top priorities which turned into a lot of research and finding what works best for us, so below I share with you the 3 water filters we use in our home and why.

  1. AquaTru RO System
  2. FilterBaby
  3. Hydrogen Health

Let me give you the basics on why we decided on these particular water filters.

AquaTru Reverse Osmosis water purifier

Once we found out about the condition of most municipal tap water, we knew the first filter we would invest in would be for our drinking water. Ben did tons of research and decided on the AquaTru Reverse Osmosis Purifier. He actually wrote an incredible blog post on The Best Water filter to remove Glyphosate, Heavy Metals, PFAS and other toxins for you so you can learn everything you need to know about our countertop RO system that we LOVE!

I’ll let you go read that post for the juicy, or should I say watery, details, but I’ll just say on here that it’s one of the best on the market removing 99% of the worst chemicals on the planet, like Glyphosate!

Needless to say, I have become a water snob, which is why you will find me lugging around my 40oz HydroJug everywhere I go. I very rarely drink any other water unless I absolutely have to.

After moving out of our RV and into a rental home, we were once again faced with how terrible the city water was. (We had a 3-stage filter for the water going into our RV) The water coming from the tap smelled like a community pool the minute you turned it on, VERY strong with chlorine, and it even felt gross. I started noticing my skin drastically changing. I’m going from glowing (thanks, Oliveda!) to dry, dull skin with insane breakouts…

… and then we noticed that our entire family was having really BAD BREATH.

Which convinced Ben to finally look at the FilterBaby. I had been telling him about this filter that attached right to your bathroom sink faucet because the tap water was destroying our skin and oral health.

I kid you not, within ONE wash with the FilterBaby I noticed a big difference with my skin, and within a week our bad breath was gone. Talk about being SOLD!

I am so glad we got the FilterBaby and will be taking it with us, wherever we live. And keep in mind, even if your water doesn’t have a strong smell, it’s guaranteed that there are invisible poisons lurking in there that you don’t want on your skin or in your mouth! So if you’re ready to clean up your act Use this link to get $10 off or use code “LACIESENTME”

Which leads us to the 3rd water filter:

Hydrogen Health Shower Filter

So now that we have a filter on our bathroom sink and seeing huge improvements, we wasted zero time on ordering a water filter for the shower once we realized the issues our tap water was causing; dry, itchy skin and dry hair (no thanks, I already am dealing with enough hair loss, I didn’t need it to get worse)!

The Hydrogen Health shower filter has been an amazing addition to our water filter family. Here are some of the features.

  • High Flow Rate
  • Removes Chlorine + Heavy Metals + Pathogens
  • Adds Vitamin C to boost collagen + Anti-UV damage
  • Alkaline + Minerals to restore healthy pH


  • Skin Health (Anti-aging my friends)
  • Antioxidant Water
  • Anti-Allergy
  • Boosts Hair Growth
  • Detox & Restores

Again, we started with ONE and have worked our way into having all three of these water filters in our home. So don’t feel like you have to go out and buy them all right away. If you can, then I would highly recommend it but if you’re on a budget, then start where you can. Every little bit helps. I would definitely start with getting your drinking water cleaned up as that’s going to straight into your body.

I would love to know your thoughts on any of these water filters. If you end up purchasing or already have them in your house, leave a comment below and let me know how it’s benefited you!
