I have a cupboard full of Radox shower and bath products. One of their really exotic ones I love is the Brazilian Fusion one. This is designed for use in the shower and it also has a handy hook for hanging it up in the shower so it won't topple over whilst you wash. The design of the bottle is slightly sloped but it's sturdy at the base (where the contents run to) and so if you have nowhere to hang it up in your shower you can be pretty sure it won't fall over too easily anyway. Both the top and the bottom of this plastic bottle is deep brown and it has pretty flowers on the bottle. I think it's quite striking to look at, actually, and I never miss it whenever I look out for it on the shelf.
Last time I bought a bottle of this, which was a couple of months back, it cost me £1.29 though I have since found it for as little as 99p in Home Bargains. It lasts for ages, as you really don't need to use a lot of this in order to obtain some pretty impressive bubbles. It's quite thick in consistency and a sort of pale peachy orange colour. It smells divine and the fragrance of this shower gel is by far one of the best ones that Radox make.
This shower gel contains extracts of both camu berry and dragon fruit. I have heard of the latter before but not the former. I would love to be able to get this as a body lotion or spray as the smell is just so seductive and exotic and I love to use this whenever I have a shower. It makes my skin feel so soft and fresh and the smell actually lasts for quite a long time on my skin afterwards. It's really quite impressive in that respect, considering it was so cheap to buy.
This shower gel really foams and lathers up very well, especially when I use my body puff in the shower. I have also used it as a bubble bath and whilst the smell is quite watered down when I do this, it's still lovely. It definitely works best as a shower gel rather than a bubble bath and I always think that the heat of the shower seems to intensify the smell so much and the upstairs of our house smells gorgeous for ages after I have used this. I think this might even make a lovely fabric conditioner or room spray. It's definitely a really striking distinctive smell though I think it's more marketed towards women than men, as it's quite a girly sort of fragrance.
It doesn't dry my skin at all. In fact, I feel it makes a huge difference in terms of adding moisture to my skin and making it feel baby soft and smooth, especially after I have used my body puff.
I shall keep on buying this particular shower gel just as long as Radox go on making it. It must surely be up there with one of their best sellers. I love it and really do recommend it.
Around Christmas time and new years, almost everywhere I went had some kind of offer on this Radox shower gel. Costing around 99p for a 250ml bottle it seemed a really good bargain so I bought a few in the range and this was one of them.
It comes in a plastic bottle with a top down lid. The packaging is ideal as it faces down so it can easily be squeezed out and when nearing the end of its usage it is already all flowing down to the spout of the bottle. There is also a handy flip up black plastic hook embedded in the design of the bottle so when in use I can easily hang it up in arms reach and don't have to keep bending down when I am in showering mode!
The shower gel itself is a thick orangey, yellow soapy liquid, and consists of lovely scents of dragon fruit and camu berry. The combination of the two really do smell very exotic and whilst I have never (yet!) been to Brazil it does feel as though I am in a nice hot climate and combined with the hot water pouring on my back its enough to entice me to stay in the shower.
I used a shower puff when showering with this and I found this shower gel lathers up rather nicely and not a lot is required to create a substantial amount of bubbles at all. It is easy to use all over, and with my shower puff it scrubs nicely and removes dirt leaving my skin feeling really clean and refreshed afterwards. It does not leave my skin feeling super dry and unnourished like a different shower gel I have used from the body shop so this is a big plus.
I love having showers and the aroma created from this shower gel is absolutely gorgeous and fills the entire bathroom up nicely. The smell lingers well on my skin, leaving me smelling absolutely yummy and long after my shower which is a plus.
Although this bottle is a limited edition I have still seen it in supermarkets so I think it can still be bought now in some places. Only paying £1 is pretty reasonable especially since I could make it last a good 2 weeks. It smells lovely, and washes well so I would totally recommend this one!
According to an article I read, "The first product produced by Radox was a salts foot bath in 1908 - nowadays it produces many different products such as liquid soap, deodorant, shower gels and a wide range of bubble baths. I always find them to make good quality products and ones I enjoy using in my home. Their shower gels are some of my favourite shower gels and Radox describe their Brazilian fusion shower gel as, "an uplifting blend, with dragon fruit and camu camu berry.
We like to use different shower gels in the shower, a change is as good as a holiday after all and this is one of the ones we have on rotation. To be honest, it's not my favourite smell, its the one my husband likes the best and I know why, it's definitely a very strong manly smell and smells more like a strong aftershave to me. That's not to say its not nice but I definitely think this smell is more suited to a man than a women but I still use it when its the turn in the shower. My husband showers in the morning first in our en-suite when I'm still sleeping and this shower gel smell really fills up the whole room, it's that strong.
It is a very good quality shower gel though. The gel is a really nice yellow colour, quite fitting for a Brazilian variety and is a gel consistency and quite thick too. I find it lathers up really well in the shower and a little goes a long way, especially with the strong smell. It is one of Radox's Limited Edition fragrances but it has been out for a number of months now so I'm wondering how long it will last.
To me, the dragon fruit and camu camu berry smell is quite a strong fruity one and this is definitely a manly fruity smell although not spicy which is nice like a normal mans shower gel. The front of the bottle has a nice picture of a dragon fruit and some camu camu berries on it and what I really like about the bottle is that it has a handle which you can extend from the bottle which you can then hang up in your shower which makes it really easy to squeeze out and apply.
The bottle contains 250ml which lasts for a week or two with both of us using it and generally costs in the £1 - £2 region.
This is a review of Radox Brazilian Fusion Bath Therapy which I have just emptied, sadly the last tot into my bath. It's possibly now taken the number one spot of Radox bubble baths in my long list of favourites. Haha as to why a picture of Steven Seagal is pictured gazing down the sights of a gun for this product. Perhaps this is how he unwinds at the end of a long, hard, gun toting day....
What is it?
Brazillian Fusion is a bubble bath or bath soak from the well-known brand, Radox. It comes underneath their 'feel good fragrance range' and promises a reviving blend with dragon fruit and camu camu berry (what? Who?).
As with the normal 500ml range of Radox, the bath soak is in a clear tall bottle with a slightly wider base, (all the better for not falling over) with a black screw top. The actual product is a light yellow colour. A picture of the flower and fruit are pictured on the front label which is handy because I didn't know what they looked like before.
A bargain £1 was paid for this bottle and I did have a sniff of the four flavours on offer when choosing this and one other. I wish I got more now though.
My alarm bells are ringing when I see the words 'Limited Edition' on the bottle and it makes me want to go racing to the supermarket to stockpile on this wonderful smelling bubble bath!
Smells so good
This bubble bath really does put you in a better place. The fragrance is quite strong but just reminds me of exotic holidays. It is an intoxicating smell but doesn't really stay on your skin after the bath so is more of an aromatherapy experience whilst in the bath.
I really like this and am gutted that it is a limited edition. Radox is always my first choice for bubble bath and I have laid heavy hints with likely candidates for more bottles this Christmas as I have had to resort to buying the last two bottles myself, having run out of the usual Christmas stash. I will definitely look out for the Brazillian Fusion and stock up if I can find it on offer again. For a pound this is brilliant value for money and a bottle lasts ages, even with my usual daily (evening) bath routine.
(Please note that the dooyoo libraray picture attached to this product is not correct!)
I love Radox shower gels but I usually stick to the same one, the green one, active fresh I think it is. Anyway I decided to try this one and I'm really pleased I did. This cost me £1 for a 250ml bottle from Asda, which is roundabout the usual price for Radox shower gels. Whilst radox is on sale in most places, supermarkets, Boots, Superdrug etc, this particular fragrance is not as widely available as yet, I think it may be fairly new and I have only seen it in Asda and Morrisons so far.
It comes in a squeezy bottle with a hanging hook for the shower and with a non drip opening, which is handy when it is hung in your shower & people don't close the lid properly! It is a pearly yellow colour and the consistency of it is quite thick and lathers up really well so you don't need to use a huge amount each time.
The fragrance is absolutely gorgeous, it says it includes dragonfruit & camu camu berry, although I wouldn't know what they smelled like if I fell over them so I can only assume that is an accurate description! Either way, it has a gorgeous scent, it smells really luxurious and the scent lasts with me all day which is lovely. It feels quite moisturising, though I would always use a moisturiser as well on very dry areas. Also I have fairly sensitive skin and I am always fine with Radox products including this one.
It says it is a limited edition although entirely how limited I'm not sure, I first purchased this months ago and just bought a bottle the other day. Let's hope it's here to stay!
~ Radox Brazilian Fusion Shower Therapy ~
Please note that I am reviewing the shower gel and not the bath soak. The dooyoo library picture shows the bath soak yet the product type states shower gel so I am guessing this is the correct place to review.
I am a fan of Radox shower gels and bath products so when I heard about a Facebook competition that Radox had on their page I swiflty went along to check it out. The prizes for the competition were bottle of the Brazilian Fusion Shower Therapy, iPod Shuffles and a trip to Brazil. They had a game that you had to play where you used the A, S, K, L, keys on the keyboard and had to follow the fruit, pressing the correct keys as they fell to produce music. The game is/was called Samba Beats.
The more fruits you burst the more your score went up and getting to over 10,000 would give you a gold token where you may or may not get a prize.
Any way that is how I came to own this lovely shower gel. I went over 10,000 down came the golden coin and a little prize box came up. At the end I was told I had won the gel.
I waited for it to arrive in the post and I must say the wait was worth it!
I generally do purchase a lot of Radox products. From bath soaks, to the salts, shower gels to the hand washes. They are always of a great quality and always decently priced.
This Radox product is a limited edition product, I know this as it said so on the Radox Facebook page but it also says it on the bottle.
The bottle is an attractive shape which is easy to hold, it's a slightly rounded bottle which stands on it's lid, or can be hung up in the shower by the handy little hanging hook which can be flipped up on the top end of the bottle. The bottle is made from a see through plastic, the hanging hook is black as it the flip top lid. On the front is a sticker that bares the name of the product as well as a sillouhette picture with a pretty flower.
Through the bottle I can see the lovely yellow coloured gel inside. The gel has a shiny tint to it and it looks very pretty.
The scent of this is quite strong yet very nice. Radox have said that the scent is carefully blended dragon fruit with camu camu berry traditionally found in the Amazonian rainforest. So there you go! I have to admit to not having the slightest idea as to what camu camu berry is but anyway this shower gel does smell good. It's a more unisex scent as aposed to some others as I usually buy two different ones for me and my hubby but he has been more than happy to use this.
To use it I take it from the hanging position on the little tray thingy on my shower, flip open the lid which is quite easy even with wet hands and squeeze a little of the gel out, it pools out onto my hand very easily yet it doesn't let loads run out so none is wasted. I grab my scrunchie and rub it with my hands so that the scrunchie is well covered with a nice white bubbly lather and proceed to wash my bod!
The smell quickly faded from the strong original scent to light gentle scent which I found rather pleasant.
It lathers up well and gives me a good clean. It doesn't offer any moisturising qualities to my skin but I was left feeling clean and refreshed.
The smell lasted for about an hour or so on my skin after I had dried yet in the bathroom it could be detected for a good few hours after!
I do quite like this particular Radox product and would use it again in the future.
Thanks for reading :o) x
One of the bath products that I buy most often is Radox, mainly because I get through such a lot of bath products due to only having a bath in my flat and bathing everyday and more often than not I find bottles of this on offer in Asda, Tesco and discount stores such as Poundland and I do appreciate buying brands that I trust. Called Brazillian Fusion this appealed to me as I hadn't seen it before and it sounded exotic to me!
This bath soak comes in a see-through plastic bottle with the words Radox embossed up the sides of it and it has a screw on/off plastic lid to the top of it. On the front of the bottle we are told that it is Radox Brazillian Fusion Bath Soak and we are also told that Radox has been blending natural herbs since 1908 and there is beach scene shown that's rather pretty. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, the ingredients and the size is stated (which in this case is a 500ml sized bottle) and contact details for Sara Lee (the manufacturer of the product) are given. This is a nice enough bottle style wise and contains as much information as we need. I do like being able to see the golden bath soak through it as well.
Well to use this of course you simply use it as you would any other bath product and thats to plop a bit under running water. The golden liquid isn't thick and is actually rather runny and pours easily and I added a fair bit to my water on the occasions I used it.
The fragrance of this is meant to be a mix of camu camu and dragonfruit. I have no idea what a camu is but all I can say about this fragrance really to describe it is quite fruity and slightly sweet, unisex and rather unusual but pleasant enough and not too strong in scent for me.
This didn't seem to soften my water by much but did give me some much needed foam. I didn't feel it relaxed or revived me or anything like that and when I was done my skin didn't feel moisturised really but at the same time it didn't feel dried out either.
The scent gently lingered on my skin for a couple of hours but not all that long really and all in all I think you can probably tell by the tone of my review by now I felt this was simply an ok product....not a superb or outstanding one.
I wouldn't go out of my way to avoid or repurchase this one to be honest it just failed to impress me somehow, its just ok!
Available in all good supermarkets and chemists etc and I pick my Radox Bath Soaks up for a pound a bottle always and pay no more than that but if not on offer expect to pay about £2.00 a bottle.
As usual at the end of last year for my birthday in November and for Christmas I received lots of lovely 'smellies' which, by the look of my bathroom cupboard, will last me until next birthday!
Each year my husband and my sister tend to buy me a lot of different shower gels as stocking fillers so that I have lots of choice - well at the start of the year anyway.
The one that I am currently using is Radox Limited Edition Brazilian Fusion Shower Therapy.
I will digress slightly at this point and say that the picture at the top of this review is of the bath foam but the title attached to this category is shower gel - there is a separate category for bath foam. I know the other two reviews in this category are for bath foam but, trust me, they are in the wrong place.
Since this was a present I had no idea how much it had cost and I am guessing that it was bought when it was on special offer anyway - we're like that in our family! Anyway I have looked online and a 250ml container of this shower gel currently costs about £2.
This one comes in a cloudy translucent plastic squeezable container which has a hook attached to the top. When you buy the shower gel the hook is clipped around the end of the container but when you come to use it you just unclip the hook twist it through 180 degrees so that it stands proud of the top and you can then hang it up in the shower. It can be used easily whilst it is hanging so it makes life very easy, especially for someone like me who is always in a hurry.
I do love the Soap and Glory shower gels but the pump action containers are a pain to use as our shelf in the shower isn't very strong and they are too big to hold in one hand so this is where Radox wins hands down.
The front of the container has the Radox logo in white lettering on a bright green background together with the words 'Brazilian Fusion shower therapy feel renewed and revived, with natural dragon fruit and camu, camu berry'. There is also a little circle with the words 'blending natural herbs' written around it. The picture is of a beautiful yellow and white flower.
I took my shower gel into the shower with me and hung it on the grab rail. To use the shower gel I leave it hanging where it is and I just flip open the black plastic lid and squeeze the container to release a blob of gel. Where the gel actually comes out there is a clear plastic disc covering the opening with a tiny hole in the centre which means that the shower gel does only come out when you give it a squeeze. This means that, as I am showering, I don't have to keep remembering to close the lid as the container is upside down. Even when left open the shower gel does not drip out so none is wasted.
The gel itself is thick and lemon in colour - it reminds me a bit of thin lemon curd to look at! It smelled gorgeous when I opened the container and sniffed the contents but, when I squeezed some out onto my hand and began to use it, I am sorry to say that there wasn't much of a fragrance at all. I was very disappointed as Radox shower gels usually have a lovely smell which fills the room and lingers once the shower is finished. Sadly that is not the case with this one.
The shower gel lathers up reasonably well, but again there was a bit of disappointment as this gel does not produce the same thick creamy lather that most of the other Radox shower gels do. We have very soft water so, if it can't manage thick lather here, there really is no hope for this one.
As with all the other Radox gels it is also 'PH balanced and dermatologically tested' and has 'active skin conditioners'.
When I had finished my shower my skin felt clean but that was it. It didn't feel particularly moisturised although it didn't feel dry either and, as I said before, there was no fragrance lingering in the air.
As with most of these products the shower gel does carry a warning to avoid getting it in your eyes - if you do wash out immediately with cool, clean water, obvious I know but worth a mention just in case.
So, in conclusion, this is a reasonable shower gel but not one that I will be buying again (yes, I know I didn't actually buy this one!) I prefer the ones with flowery fragrances and thick lathers. There are one or two in my bathroom cabinet that look promising so watch this space.....................
Whilst I do love a long soak in the bath tub at the end of a long and busy week, my previous reviews will show that I am a big fan of the Radox bath products and will regularly treat myself to a new bottle. Whilst doing so recently I spotted a bottle of this limited edition Brazilian Fusion on the shelf and so put a bottle into my basket to try out when I got home.
This bubble bath stands out from the other bath soaks in the range as the contents are a bright mustard yellow colour and not the creamy yellow shown in the Dooyoo picture. What with mustard being an 'in' colour at the moment Radox have hit the nail on the head with this product.
The bottle design for this bath soak is the same as any other of the Radox range being a slightly rectangular bottle which houses 500ml of contents which is topped with a black screw top lid. The front of this bottle differs however being that it illustrates a large white flower on the front and a backdrop of the statue of Jesus in Rio de Janeiro.
Radox state that this product has been made with exotic dragon fruit and camu camu berry found in the Amazon rainforest to revive your senses. Whilst I must admit to not having a clue what either of these ingredients smell like, they do create a lovely fruity scent in the bath which slightly reminds me of being on holiday. This in my opinion can't be a bad thing at this time of year.
For the best use simply pour out a dollop of this bath product under the running tap in the bath and swish around to get nice and foamy. I have found that the bubbles are not as hardy as some of the other bubble baths Radox produce but the smell lingers in the bath water and makes the water look slightly creamy in colour. Upon getting out of the bath my skin felt soft and nourished and had a lovely sweet scent. When you have finished the contents the bottle is completely recyclable which means you can feel you are doing your part for our environment.
I bought this product from my local Wilkinsons store and paid around £1.20 for it as part of an offer. However, it is currently being stocked in Tesco for £1.90 which is in my opinion still a good price for such an unusual scented bubble bath from a reputable manufacturer.
Overall I would say that this is a lovely limited edition product from Radox which I will be buying again when my bottle runs out. I would therefore recommend it, even if it is just to sample the scent or brighten up your bathroom and as it is a limited edition there is no telling how long it will be available for.
This product scores a satisfying five stars out of five from me.
Thanks for reading! x
This Radox Brazilian Fusion range is limited edition. It is currently half price at Sainsbury's, and so I snapped this up for only 94p. The usual price is £1.89.
This comes in a 500ml bottle (bubble bath) also, but the product I am reviewing is the shower gel, which comes in a 250ml bottle.
The bottle is clear plastic with a black plastic flip-top base, meaning the product sinks to the bottom of the bottle and is dispensed easily. The top has a black plastic hook/handle, so you can hang it up in the shower somewhere for convenience.
The bottle has a drawing of a dragon fruit flower, and behind that a black silhouette of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, really emphasising that this shower gel has a Brazilian influence!
This shower gel is said to contain dragon fruit and camu camu berries. I had no idea what camu camu berries were but thanks to Wikipedia I can reveal that they are the red/purple berries from the camu camu tree, which is found in the Amazon rainforest.
When dispensed, the product is thick. It's a pale gold colour, which reminded me of the colour of cloudy pineapple juice. When you first squeeze it out, it smells flowery, strong, somewhat musky. Once you lather it up (it lathers quickly), you can detect a more tropical scent coming out.
This didn't dry my skin out at all, and it is pH balanced. My skin felt soft and the smell of the shower gel lingered on my skin too, and indeed the bathroom also smells of it.
The bottle claims that this shower gel will refresh and revive. However I personally feel that this shower gel is more suited to showering in the evenings. The aroma is somewhat comforting, which I feel is better suited to night time as it's relaxing.
I really like this shower gel. It's something a little different, and 94p for a Radox product seems like a bit of a bargain to me.
