“ Brand: Radox / Type: Shower Gel / What it does: Hydrates, Nourishes „
Radox Daily Elements Hydra Care Shower Spa is a shower gel which contains a blend of vitamins and minerals, seaweed and vitamin E. Also it is hypoallergenic and ph balanced so is therefore kind to your skin. It is manufactured by Sarah Lee in Slough. This gel comes in a transparent bottle with a little hook attached so it can be hung in the shower - very handy!
I found this on offer in Morrison's - buy one get one free - so I though why not? Being Radox I imagined it would be a good buy but not so.
I suffer from very dry and sensitive skin so I was greatly looking forward to the moisturing and hypoallergenic qualities of this shower gel.
Strangely I found that it moisturised me too well!!? I only used a relatively small amount and washed in the usual way. Later on I felt my back and it was greasy - ew! This has never happened to me before and must have been as a result of the Radox as now I have stopped using it - my skin is back to normal!
I have read many good reviews of this product so perhaps it just my weird skin that didn't get on with it!
It has a lovely light and very inoffensive fragrance and has hundreds of little bubbles all the way through the product. This was one of the factors which attracted me to buying the product - it looks nice and the bubbles make it "different" to other gels I have tried previously. Just a shame about the greasiness!
I would certainly try another product from this range as this one just didn't suit my skin unfortunately.
Last year I received three of the Radox Daily Elements shower gels as part of my Christmas present from my husband and I was well impressed with all three. I thought that there were only three in the range but he has managed to find another one this year and it is just as hood as the other three!
This one is Radox Daily Elements Hydra Care Shower Spa.
As with the other Daily Elements shower products it looks different from the usual Radox shower gels. This one comes in a clear plastic container and the liquid within is a very pale pink in colour and is full of tiny bubbles.
The 250ml container is the same in design as all the other Radox shower gels. It has a hook set into the top of the container which unclips and turns through 180 degrees so that you can hang your shower gel up in the shower for ease of use.
The labeling is unusual too looking somehow 'natural'. The front of this one has the usual Radox logo in green together with the words 'daily elements essential minerals hydra care shower spa'. Then there is a picture which looks like two smooth pebbles one on top of the other. The writing underneath says 'keeps your skin nourished with seaweed and vitamin E proven to care hypoallergenic'. There is also a circular logo with the words 'Blend of natural minerals and herbs' written around it.
I know some people aren't really interested in the packaging but I felt it was important to describe this one because this does look quite different from the standard range of Radox shower gels. It has a natural look to it giving the impression that it will be good for your skin. It may well be a marketing ploy of course! You can see what I mean by looking at the picture at the top of the review.
Anyway enough about the packaging lets get stuck in and get showering!
As I squeezed a blob of shower cream out into my hand the fragrance that wafted up from it was lovely! I notoriously find smells difficult to describe but this one is sweet and floral even almost fruity.
As the liquid comes out of the container the tiny bubbles disappear from the shower gel but they certainly reappear in the lather!!! It really lathers up well and the fragrance fills the bathroom.
After rinsing the shower cream off the smell remained both on my skin and in the air in the bathroom and it did leave my skin feeling lovely and smooth. I also found that the cream did seem to moisturise my skin.
Radox is made by Sara Lee, which is a part of H & BC UK Ltd. I have now found out that it is the same firm that makes the gateaux, which I always do find a strange 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 didn't have a clue how much it had cost but looking in Boots the normal price is currently £1.95 mark although they are often available as part of a buy one get one free offer so stock up!! Incidentally the current offer is buy 2 for £2.
Incidentally the daily elements range is also available in deodorants too so I shall definitely be trying those as well!

I must admit that the name Radox conjurs up a vision in my mind of a tattered green box in my nanna's very cold bathroom full of bath salts that managed to combine a very medicinal fragrance with one of pine toilet cleaner!! How's that for an opening sentence!!!!
However, it seems that this is way in the past now as this product is a delicate pink in colour with a pretty, delicate fragrance especially for the girls!!!
It comes in a 250ml see through bottle with a clever hook that enables you to hang it in the shower. The gel inside is full of little bubbles adding to the idea that it is light and fun! The hook, though handy, gets on my nerves a little bit because it has a black speckle within the plastic and looks dirty to me.
The gel is easy to dispense as it is of a suitable consistency and the gadget in the top prevents an overload on your sponge. It foams nicely and the subtle fragrance lasts during the day.
I must admit that I think the advertising on the package overdoes it a little. It includes the words 'essential minerals,hydra care, vitamin e, seaweed, nourish' it sounds like this little bottle is going to give you a 'Spa' experience and although pleasant, it doesn't seem to out do any of its rivals in my opinion.
A decent priced, pleasant shower gel that does its job!
I'm pretty sure this shower gel is on offer in some shops, and is probably the only reason we have it, but it must be say I quite like it.
It's packaging is a nice feature as the top of the bottle can flip up so you are able to hang it up in the shower for easy access. It has a lovely soapy fragrance in my opinioin and leaves you feeling nice as well as smelling nice with the lather it makes. The smell doesn't just go away once you've had your bath/shower either, it stays for quit a long period of time.
Radox do do a wide variety of shower gels among other things and I think this is one of the best, you just feel better once you've used it, cleaner (obviously) and it does what it says on the package.
This is a good product, as well as the other radox products and is worth a try. Really nice. User friendly packaging.
I bought this shower gel because it was on a BOGOF offer in Tesco. It normally costs £1.98 for a 250ml bottle.
The packaging is quite nice, and it has a flip up hook so that you can hang it up in the shower, or it can be stood on it's lid. The lid is a sturdy flip-top style and the bottle is squeezable so you just squeeze it to get some product out.
The shower gel is a very pale pinky colour but rather than being smooth and clear you can instantly see it's full of little bubbles. It has a nice fresh scent to it, which funnily enough reminds me of the smell of rhubarb!
It contains seaweed and vitamin E, which are supposed to help nourish and condition the skin, and it's hypoallergenic, so it should be suitable for sensitive skins.
The shower gel is quite thin and runny, but it produces a really nice thick lather which feels lovely and soft on the skin. It feels very smoothing and softening, and it really feels as though it's doing a good job of cleansing my skin. It rinses off easily and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean, and really soft to touch.
After using this for a few weeks my skin feels a whole lot softer and smoother than it previously did, and I'd say it's in much better condition overall than it was before. I'm really very pleased with the results from using it and I would definitely buy it again, even at full price.
After a very disappointing purchase of a shower gel last week, I decided it was time to go out and try again. I was hoping I would have better luck this time.
I was browsing around in Boot's when I spotted a 'new' Radox daily elements shower gel. I decided to give it a go.
Radox have around one hundred years experience in the body care business. It all started way back in 1908 when they introduced their first product to the market. The product was Radox Salts Foot Bath. The company has continued to grow and introduce new products until the present day.
The daily elements shower gel I bought comes in the standard clear plastic bottle well known to Radox. It has a white flip lid at the bottom of the bottle and a white pull up handle at the top. This allows you to hang the shower gel inside the shower.
The contents inside the bottle are not pink as shown in the above picture. They are in fact clear and it looks as if there are thousands of tiny air bubbles inside. These dissappear as soon as they come into contact with water.
When I opened the flip lid I was met with a very subtle floral fragrance. This surprised me a bit, as it says on the bottle that it contains seaweed and vitamin E. The fragrance was not what I had expected.
This shower gel feels very rich and creamy when it comes into contact with water. It lathers up very well and rinses easily.
I love the subtle fragrance and this did leave my skin feeling very clean and soft.
When I checked the long list of ingredients, it does include the word 'parfum', but no indication of what it is. I am not very keen on anything which has a strong fragrance, so this suits me very well.
The bottle contains 250ml of gel which generally lasts me for about two weeks. It tells you on the bottle that this gel is hypoallergenic and contains natural minerals and herbs.
Radox does not use animal testing on any of it's products.
The shower gel cost me £1.29 in Boot's, but I will be on the look out for any offers so that I can stock up.
