Radox Care Me Shower Cream
Advantages: It works well and smells wonderful.
Disadvantages: None for me
Last year for Christmas as stocking fillers I asked for shower gel with hooks to hang in the shower. In our old house I found that the ones without hooks far too much trouble to use and I often ended up dropping them in the shower. I'm luckier now as we also have a little shelf in the shower at our new place so this year I shan't mind whether they have hooks or not! LOL!
Anyway I got plenty of them as usual and I am still working my way through them - just how dirty does my family think I am? LOL!
I took a fresh one out of the cupboard last week and it was Radox Care For Me. I hadn't seen this one before so what would this one be like?
It comes in a pale pink coloured plastic squeezable container with a hook clipped into the top. The end of the hook comes away from the container and twists 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 always seems to be in a hurry.
The front of the container has the Radox logo in white lettering on a bright green background together with the words 'care for me' and some pink flower petals.
As I know I have said before I am really impressed by the actual gel dispenser itself. To use the shower gel you just have to flip open the plastic lid and squeeze the container, the same as you would any other shower 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. In turn this also means that if you do happen to drop the container in the shower whilst the lid is open the shower gel won't ooze out and be wasted. I thought this was just a design peculiar to Radox but I have now used Boots shower gels with the same brilliant design.
The gel itself is a light, delicate shade of pink and the smell is absolutely gorgeous! As I said earlier I hadn't tried this one before and I wasn't really thinking about it as I went into the shower. Trust me I do have other things on my mind rather than thinking about what my shower gel is going to be like! As I lathered it onto my body the smell was so lovely it really made me stop and register it.
The writing on the container states that it is 'fragrant shower cream to protect and care with extracts of cotton and milk'. This doesn't actually help to tell me what the smell is. It also says that it contains a 'blend of natural minerals and herbs', but still no help in finding out what the smell actually is! So all I can tell you is that it is a sweet but not sickly smell that reminds me of flowers (which flowers I have no idea!) and I could still smell the gel for some time after I had finished my shower.
It is also 'PH balanced and dermatologically tested' and has 'active skin conditioners'. My skin certainly felt soft and as I said the fragrance is really great.
Radox products are made by Sara Lee, which is a part of H & BC UK Ltd. If you are wondering it is the same firm that makes the gateaux, which I do find an odd mix of products for one firm.
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.
Since this was a present I hadn't a clue how much it had cost so I have been to www.boots.com and it is currently £1.62, although both Boots and Tesco often have offers on Radox shower gels - usually buy on get one free.
I must just warn you - there are sure to be more varieties in the cupboard which have not yet been reviewed!
Summary: A truly superb smelling shower gel
