The result: an enriched shower with up to 10 times more beneficial air/oxygen that improves circulation, stimulates cell activity and promotes healthier, more youthful-looking skin.

  1. Dripstop works as promised. Problem is that their Combo Pack contains 4 sizes. The largest worked for me but the packet did not identify the designation of the sizes so I would like to REORDER and cant use the specific pack because I cant tell whether I need the A or B or C or D size.
    I suspect the A is the combo and the B the smallest size, the C is next and the D Largest. Only problem is a listing for my faucet lists B and C for Central Brass and I want the LARGEST size and the list does not mention the D for Central Brass even though it is the LARGEST.. Go Figure
