      A Dreamy Bath

      I recently bought this Radox Eastern Spirit because it jumped out at me from the supermarket shelf. The colour of the bath foam is a delicious pinky-peach and the lotus and pagoda picture on the front of the bottle is dreamy and beautiful. The product comes in a large 500ml sized recyclable transparent plastic bottle. This is fitted with a screw off top which is easy to open. The bottle has information labels on the front and back. On the front it actually says this is a Limited Edition version and describes the product as a "bath soak...with oriental lotus flower and orange blossom".
      The label on the back states that the brand use nature as an inspiration to create their exotic bath soak blends. Using "natural" ingredients the brand have created a product they say will leave you "uplifted". Full ingredients and brand contact information are also printed on the label.
      To use this product you must pour it under running water. I've found that the smallest dollop of this works well, creating a blanket of foam and releasing a beautiful scent. The fragrance is enchanting and contains the sharp zest of orange along with the dewy, delicate nectar of the lotus flower. It's a fragrance that makes me feel happy and relaxed. I really want to dive into the bath and close my eyes for a while! The fragrance is very powerful and yet it doesn't overwhelm the senses, it seems to seduce them!
      This product creates bubbles or foam and the amount created depends on how much of the liquid you add to the water. I like just a little bit and I'm happy with the silky soft bubbles that come out of just one dollop of liquid. It makes the water feel smooth and luxurious. I haven't noticed that this product has any other benefits such as skin softening but the fragrance does stay on the skin after drying.
      I would definitely buy this again as it allows me to enjoy bathing and gives me the opportunity to relax and indulge in my senses. It's such a lovely fragrance, although possibly only suited to female consumers. I would recommend to friends and family.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Smells lovely

      I don't tend to have a bath as I prefer a quick shower more for the fact of washing long hair in the bath I find a nightmare. When I do have a bath I generally use Badedas or Radox and this is one of my more recent purchases.

      You can buy this product in supermarkets, chemists and even discount stores although this one is more of a rarer find in the discount style stores. The product sells at £1.90 for a 500ml bottle however they often seem to go on offer at £1 so I never pay the full price just stock up on them when they're on offer.

      The product comes in a tall square shaped plastic bottle which has a pink screw top lid on it, on the front of the bottle you have a picture of what makes me think of Japan with a little hut shadowed in the background and then a large flower pictured in the forefront. As the bottle is see through you can see the liquid inside which is a sort of orangey pink colour and really lovely, it states that the fragrance is oriental lotus flower and orange blossom.

      The bath foam smells really sweet and very fruity and I think it is really nice but I would expect some people may find it too sickly, the scent of it fills the whole house. To use the product you simply need to unscrew the lid and pour under warm running water to create wonderful bubbles, the product is pretty thick and needs a little squeeze to come out of the bottle. You don't need much of the product to produce a bath full of bubbles and the bubbles remain for the whole of your bath which is lovely.

      I find my skin feels lovely when first dried but after 10-15 minutes I feel it does need a moisturiser applying, my skin is lightly scented after my baths and I really love the scent so it is actually a shame to rub moisturiser in and lose the scent. I rate this 4 stars as I feel it could be a little more moisturising.

        Eastern spirit bath therapy

        Radox say you can, "Recharge and come to life with their range of Feel Good Fragrance Bubble Baths - Each product contains a special blend of at least two natural active ingredients to invigorate your body & mind."

        I absolutely love having a bath and if it's not Soap and Glory products in my bath then its Radox products. Radox have been making bath salts, gels and bubbles for over 100 years and they have definitely perfected their products. I love the fact that they call their "bubble Bath" bath therapy as having a bath for me is so relaxing it takes the place of therapy!

        Eastern Spirit is probably my favourite scent by Radox as it's quite a girly scent compared to more of their herbal baths. This one has a nice sweet smell to it and I love relaxing into the lovely fruity fragrance. Radox describe their Eastern Spirit bath therapy as, "Enjoy a blissful bath, containing the exotic aromas of this Limited Edition bath soak. Inspired by Oriental traditions, Eastern Spirit with sacred Lotus flower and Orange Blossom, creates a bathing experience that will revive your senses leaving you feeling uplifted. "

        The bath therapy comes in a nice big bottle that holds 500ml so you can really have quite a few baths with that amount. Once the hot tap is running in my bath I just unscrew the cap and then squeeze quite a few dollops of the liquid out under the tap. The bath therapy creates lots of lovely bubbles that do really last for the whole length of the bath which is nice.

        The smell is really delicious and inviting and lovely to relax into and spend a few minutes just soaking and relaxing. I would describe the smell as a fruity smell and you can definitely smell the orange blossom but it is not overly circusy so I think the lotus flower maybe calms down the orange flavour a bit which is nice. The bath therapy is a lovely bright pink colour and after a bath my skin feels nice and fresh and well washed. It also feels really soft and I think that is down to the orange oil as it has quite a sleek feel to it and does work well on my skin.

        A 500ml bottle costs just £1.90 whcih per bath is really quite cheap so if you want to be rejuvenated and escape to an Eastern paradise then I definitely recommend you try this bath therapy.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great for occasional use but don't expect miracles and be careful if it gets in your eyes.

          Rejuvenate the senses, with oriental lotus flower & orange blossom bath soak. According to the description on the back of the bottle the sacred lotus flower helps to rejuvenate the mind and when it's blended with oil of orange blossom it will revive your senses. I checked the ingredients on the Radox website and found the following list. It was an education in itself!

          Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Parfum, Sine Adipe Lac, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Citrus Aurantium Amara Flower Extract, Citric Acid, Glycol Distearate, Limonene, Sodium Lactate, Polyquaternium-7, Steareth-4, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Tetrasodium EDTA, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, CI 16035, CI 16255.

          In this list the sacred lotus flower is Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, and the orange blossom is Citrus Aurantium Amara Flower Extract. Put it together with the chemicals and suddenly the handful of lotus blossoms and the few drops of orange blossom oil didn't seem quite so romantic or mystical.

          One thing that concerned me was the use of Sodium Laureth Sulfate or SLS. This chemical is a degreasant and is widely used in toiletries. Apparently some research has found that it can be an irritant to the skin. However, I have a sensitive skin and I found no ill effects but I have to add that I only use the Radox bath therapy very occasionally. Do be careful if you get this product in your eyes. The label on the bottle is quite hard to read but it does tell you to rinse well with clean water if you get it in your eyes.

          When I used the product I was impressed with the amount of bubbles created with a small amount of Radox. It seemed quite a lot better than other similar products I'd used and the perfume was not too overpowering. It was quite relaxing in fact and I thoroughly enjoyed my Radox bath.

          So were my senses rejuvenated? Not noticeably! I'd spent a long hard day helping to run a dog show. It was winter, my feet ached, my brain felt numb and my body had spent all day trying to join it. A reviving bath was just what I needed. I didn't notice any difference in brain function but the nice hot bath did wonders for my aching joints.

          I would say Radox bath therapy is great for occasional use but claims that it rejuvenates and revives the senses are more to do with the general effects of feeling better after a bath than the ingredients in the product.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Nice to but when on offer for the vast amount of bubbles.

            ===The Product===

            Limited edition.
            Side of bottle fas raised letters on two sides which spell out RADOX.
            Avoid eyes.
            Pearlised pink/salmon thickish liquid.



            ===Cost===

            £1.90 - currently half price at Tesco.



            ===Varieties===

            As well as shower gels and other bath items Radox have the following other fragrances in this bath range:
            * Brazilian Fusion with dragon fruit & camu camu berry.
            * Muscle Soak with clary sage & sea minerals.
            * Stress Relief with rosemary & eucalyptus.
            * Muscle Therapy with black pepper & ginseng.
            * Moisture Soak with calendula & rose.
            * Relax with lavender & waterlily.
            * Sleep Easy with chamomile & jasmine.
            * Original with juniper & thyme.
            * Nourish with shea butter & ginger.



            ===My Opinion===

            Radox state that this bath soak 'creates a bathing experience that will revive your senses leaving you feeling uplifted'. Now that is a tall order.
            Radox is one of the best and oldest brands of bath products and they have been making their salts since 1908. I must admit I have not bought any Radox products for a good few years, and the last ones I did buy were the traditional bath salts. Then we would automatically go for Radox if you wanted to have a good soak.
            However we are currently trying out different bath products to find ones we really like and so when I saw this Radox Bath Soak on sale in Tesco for half price it was too good an offer to miss.
            The look of the soak is quite attractive as it is a pleasant deepish pink shade.
            The first time I used it I did not realise how much bubbles it would make and ended up with a bath full.
            The smell, being oriental, is quite hard to explain. It is sort of heavy and rich and slightly floral. However although the smell is quite intense it is not too overpowering or strong. The bubbles lasted all through my bath and stayed in the tub for ages afterwards, I even had them dropping off me when I was trying to dry myself!
            The fragrance is quite gentle in its way and not too strong, but out of the two I would say that the bubbles beat the fragrance.
            t is not that I do not like the fragrance as such, but it is not one I would rave about.
            I cannot fault its bubble making properties which are the best I have seen for quite a while.
            If these are on offer I will definitely buy some of the other fragrances in this range to try them out.
            This range of products contains natural extracts and each fragrance has two different extracts - this one contained lotus flower and orange blossom - so I cannot say how accurate the aroma is as I am not sure what it should smell like.
            This is supposed to be 'rejuvenating' - but apart form the fact that I find any bath relaxing and beneficial to my muscles I cannot say this lived up to its claims - but the bubbles were nice.



            ===Star Rating===

            3 stars - depending on cost.



            ===Would I Recommend?===

            Yes.

            Disadvantages

            An ok bath soak but nothing special!

            When it comes to bathing its one of my most favourite things to do in my spare time! I love a long soak in nice scented bath products and beacuse of that I do get through an awful lot of them.

            I always buy branded products but I always try to get them on the cheap or on offer or something and recently this was on offer in my local Asda store for a pound a bottle (instead of closer to £2.00 a bottle usually). I couldn't wait to try this because to me the name of it makes it sound almost mystical!

            The Packaging:

            As far as I am aware this is only available to be bought in one size and that size is the one I have in front of me which is 500ml in size and it is a see-through oblong bottle with a twist on/off lid/cap which is black to the top of it concealing a large hole. On the front of the bottle there is an Oriental scene and we are told that it is Radox 'Limited Edition' Eastern Spirit Bath Therapy 'Rejuvinate the senses, with oriental lotus flower & orange blossom bath soak' and that Radox have been blending natural herbs since 1908. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, ingredients and the size is stated (as I have listed already) and contact details for Sara Lee (the manufacturer of the product) are given. This is a nice enough bottle in appearance and rather feminine as you can see the almost shimmery peachy looking bath soak through it which is handy too so that you know when it needs replacing if need be!

            A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Back Of The Bottle:

            Relax into a blissful bath, containing the exotic aromas of this Limited Edition bath soak. Inspired by Oriental traditions, Eastern Spirit with sacred Lotus Flower, helps to rejuvinate the mind. Blended with the fragrant oil of Orange Blossom, this is a bathing experience that will revive your senses.

            What's Gone Into It?:

            100 years of Radox know-how
            A handful of Lotus Petals
            A few drops of Orange Blossom oil
            A perfect pH balance
            A thumbs-up from the skin experts

            The Bath Soak Itself:

            Well like I say the bath soak is a peachy colour and rather nice actually in its appearance. It runs out easily out of the bottle, though it isn't too runny this has a top note smell of the orange blossom which is slightly zesty but rather cirtusy and with a heart and base note of the lotus flower that is really soft but of course floral. It is rather a feminine uplifting fragrance and although I wasn't expecting it to be so orangy in its fragrance it is pleasant and sweet in a natural way.

            You don't need very much per bath session of this and the water goes slightly soft but without feeling oily, the lather created whilst running the water to the bath soak may not be huge amounts but enough and that lasts a good hour as does the fragrance (actually the fragrance lingers for hours in the bathroom).

            However although the fragrance is/was pleasant enough it wasn't feminine enough for me and to be honest I'm not overly keen on the fruity smell this has to it although to be fair to it it is well blended enough with the lotus flower however this fragrance didn't linger on my skin above an hour but it did in my bathroom and my flatmate/bestmate even commented how nice the room smelt after I use it.

            It isn't a particulary relaxing or invigorated soak really though it left my skin feeling refreshed enough and soft enough but I wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase this one again to be honest as the scent didn't linger for long enough on me and I prefer more floral fragrances anyway!

            Available in all good supermarkets and chemists.
