Spa at Home With Moen Showerheads

In this economy, we’ve had to make some great sacrifices. I’m not just talking about the major luxuries like dinner out a few times per week, the “you’ve had a bad day” retail therapy, etc. I mean the new essentials like gym memberships and the once in a while spa visits to de-stress from working so hard. Fear not though, fellow rat racers because with companies like Moen, you can indulge in a spa experience at home. One of Moen’s amazing products is the Banbury® Spot Resistant Five-Function Combination Showerhead with Handshower in Spot Resist Brushed Nickel

Moen’s Banbury Collection highlights timeless nostalgia for traditional versatility with both a classical and sensible tone. This particular dual showerhead features Spot Resist™ brushed nickel which resists fingerprints and water spots (this also makes for easy, worry-free cleaning). Both the showerhead and the handshower have five settings that are sure to ease those tired muscles, whether you need a Relaxing Massage, Energizing Massage, prefer a Wide Spray shower, Wide Spray & Relaxing Massage combo or a Wide Spray & Energizing Massage combo. Each setting are easy to change, so there is absolutely no stress involved. What’s my favorite feature about this amazing shower experience (besides the money I’ve saved on massages), the fact that both heads are able to function at the same time

So take advantage and enjoy a combination massage experience – energize and relax your body at once or target two specific areas at the same time. My problem areas are usually my shoulders and lower back, with this beauty, I am able to target them at once. Moen Showerheads, faucets and all its products are available nationwide at such retailers as Home Depot, Lowe’s, etc and online at
