I do like to use the Radox range of products but as I only have a bath at weekends and I shower during the week, I don't get a lot of opportunity to use bubble baths or bath crèmes any more, which is why, whenever I do, I like to make the most of it and use something really special in my bath. I like Radox as they have a wide range of products and also they are never very expensive. One of my favourites at the moment is the most recent one I am buying, which is n;t actually a bubble bath at all, it's a crème bath. I got this from Poundland so it was nice and cheap for a very large bottle. I had bought this in the past, about six months ago from Tesco, when it was full price, so I consider paying only £1 to be a real bargain.
As I had used this before, I remembered how lovely and rich and creamy it is and what a wonderful smell it has once I put it under the hot tap of my running bath. It has such a delicate floral smell and ever so slightly fruity at the same time, which I suppose must account for the apricot.
Though this is a crème bath, it still gives an impressive amount of bubbles when I put it under hot running water. It foams nicely and the bubbles and foam together last throughout the duration of my bath. The smell is nice but it's not what I'd call a powerful bat fragrance, it's very delicate and barely there, yet nevertheless it does linger on the skin for about an hour or so after I have got out of the bath and been downstairs.
It makes my skin feel lovely and soft and smooth and though it is fragranced with flowers, my husband has also used this in his bath and commented on how nice it is. I have also used it in my daughter's bath and I really do feel it's a bath product which can be used and appreciated by the whole family.
It's certainly inexpensive and as I don't need to use a great deal and the bottle is so large, it works out excellent value for money and I shall certainly be buying more of this next time I go into Poundland.
I'm reviewing my Radox Essentials Cream bath.
It cost me £1 in Superdrug.
The bottle contains 500ml, which is quite generous.
***WHY I BOUGHT IT***
I'm not a bath person really,well not since we got the spanking new walk-in shower installed .
But since taking on two toddlers some months ago it reminded me of the positives of bathing over showering, because once they'd had their bath fun and been calmed down for the hair washing finish and being dried off, they become totally serene and relaxed and ready for a story and bed. I had forgotten how relaxing a bath can leave one feeling....... so when I saw this reduced from £1.55 to £1 in Superdrug I picked up a bottle and determined to start using the bath myself occasionally.
***USING and MY OPINION***
This product comes in a nice tall bottle which is pale creamy apricot coloured .
It isn't stippled for easy gripping, but since it is just used when first running the bath rather than under a running shower this hardly matters .
The top is screw top and there is no small dispensing hole under the lid, just the simple round bottle opening for ease of pouring.
There is a nice smell from it which is vaguely floral,but in a subtle way and not "in your face" heavy.
I loved using this.
I do like the open top which is far better in a bath cream than squeezing the product through a tiny hole . Just pour enough under the taps and let the running water do the work of blending it through.
I didn't use too much because I wasn't interested in masses of bubbles. Nor is my skin particularly dry or oily, so whatever the content I knew that I shouldn't need too much.
Radox is a really well established brand and that made me confident that less is more. However I kept the bottle to hand, just in case I wanted/needed to add more. I didn't.
I used roughly one tenth of the bottle and that was plenty to give a nice smooth creaminess to the water and create a bit of frothing on the surface.
The smell is wonderful. Like I said, lightly floral but with just a touch of muskiness and possibly a light fruit addition (Apricot?)....but the fruit thing is so vague it is barely there and the overall scent is that of a pleasant small bouquet of flowers where no one flower dominates,but they just combine pleasingly without overpowering the senses.
It really does make a difference to the water too. It turns it silky and really pleasurable to work with using a bath scrunchie .
After my bath my skin felt smooth and good and I didn't bother with moisturiser because it didn't seem needed, other than on my feet .
The smell lingers nicely on the skin for about an hour, which some might not find long enough ,but personally I think that is sufficient with these things.
I've used this three times now and have had no adverse reactions..... my opinion remains positive .
Yes, I know showers are more sensible, but there is no beating a soak in perfumed silky water for helping relax weary limbs and sometimes you just MUST !
Add music and candles the world passes you by nicely in your own little spa bubble.
So all in all this gets a massive thumbs up from me and the fact that it works out at roughly 10p per bath makes it a bargain, especially when you consider bath bars/bombs etc from big companies can cost up to £5 and only last for 3 or 4 baths.
Would I recommend ? A resounding yes.
Thank you for reading ~~~myloh.
I often buy the Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream with Milk and have done so for a while now, its main ingredient of milk I think is very appealing and the peachy colour looks lovely which is what initially drew me to this product.
This product has been approved by skin care experts and prides itself on keeping your skin soft and nourished and the milk inside is known to protect and care for your skin. This Radox comes in a tall rectangular bottle with a screw on colour co-ordinated lid, you can not forget that it is a Radox brand as the words Radox are printed largely upon the bottle and you can find the instructions for use and ingredients on the back.
This bath cream is a luxurious bath product and once you place some of the peachy contents into your hot bath water it will create some lovely comforting and creamy bubbles. This product has a relaxing lovely fragrance to it, and when in you bath the Radox soaks into your skin making you feel calm and soothed, I always get out of the bath feeling great after using this product.
And this lovely relaxed feeling continues for the remainder of my night and my skin feels nice and soft, this Radox gives me peace of mind that my skin is being cared for. The Radox Soft Bath Cream with Milk is a product that since first purchasing I have regularly kept in my life, there is not one bad thing I could say about it, it does a brilliant job at relaxing me and making me smell wonderful, it cares for my skin so I can highly recommend this product.
You can pick a bottle of this up from pretty much anywhere, your local supermarket will sell it as well as a whole host of other shops or you could even by it online, for the price of £1 this is a brilliant product which is absolutely worth the money.
This Radox Essentials bath cream was an impulse buy not so long ago when I popped into Iceland. I simply walked past the toiletries section and remembered I needed some bubble bath as I had ran out of the bubble bars etc that I had been using from Lush that I received at Christmas. Iceland only had a few bubble baths to choose from and with Radox being a brand I know and have used several times before, I didn't hesitate to buy this one, although this specific one isn't one I have used before.
It is from the 'Essentials' range by Radox which can usually be found in the discounted shops such as B&M, Home Bargains, and of course where I purchased it from, Iceland. For 500ml this costs £1, which I think is very reasonable considering how many baths you will get out of this. The Radox bubble baths that are available in the bigger supermarkets don't include the essentials one, or at least I have yet to see this one in any of them. Instead they have a bigger range of Radox bubble baths available, and a lot of these I have tried but I have found I like this cream from the essentials one to be the best one I have used yet.
As this is a bath 'cream' the texture of this is quite thick, milky and gloopy. I love this though and after adding some to my bath, the water soon turned quite creamy and made my skin feel very smooth. I like a lot of bubbles and so I added quite a bit to the bath, but I wouldn't add as much next time as a little goes a long way. You get a lot of bubbles from this that don't disappear too quickly either! The cream effect isn't too much and is quite subtle, but you notice the results on your skin quite quickly. So you do not need to worry about your water turning too greasy from adding too much to it.
I like the scent of this, it doesn't state exactly what it is but I think it's quite girly and with a slight musky aroma to it. My boyfriend likes it though so I guess it is quite unisex.
So in conclusion, I love the cream effect, it creates lots of bubbles, the scent is lovely, and it is cheap! I will definitely purchase this Radox bath cream again and would recommend it to any Radox lover who hasn't tried this one yet. Even though this is from the 'Eseentials' range I think it is one of the best ones by Radox!
~*~*~* Radox Essential Soft Care Bath Cream *~*~*~
After a long, hard day at work there is nothing better than slipping into a hot bubble bath, especially if someone else has run it for you and I was lucky enough to have this privilege about a week ago. I came back from work to find the bath full of bubbles and I could not wait to jump in. The reason I like bubble bath so much is because I find it really relaxing and it is also nostalgic. I remember having lots of bubble baths as a child, I think the bubble bath was shaped like a sailor, and I particularly enjoyed putting the bubbles on my chin and pretending to be Father Christmas (I sometimes still do this!).
I purchased this bath cream from Superdrug for £1.00 for 500ml. It comes in a rectangular shaped bottle, which is transparent, and has a screw top lid. On the front of the bottle is the products name, what it is and the Radox logo. On the back of the bottle is the ingredients and instructions on how to use. The cream is an off-white, milky coloured liquid, which is quite thick and gloopy. To use, you simply dribble out a small amount of cream under the running water and wait for the magic to happen. You do not need much cream to produce a good amount of bubbles and there is no need to swish your hands around the tub to create more bubbles, as the pressure from the water on its own it enough.
Now for the best bit... Once you have sat in the bath the bubbles just close in around you, like a lovely warm cuddle. The bubbles are very crisp and white (they make a fantastic Santa beard). I can sit in a bath easily for an hour and even after this amount of time the bubbles are still present and fluffy. I find it so relaxing and soothing, and I quite often don't want to get out!
The other great thing about this bath cream is the fragrance, it is very subtle and not over powering in the slightest. Sometimes if I use a very strong smelling bubble bath it can give me a headache and all I want to do is get away from the smell. The aroma of this bath cream is slightly floral and quite musky, so even my partner doesn't mind using it as it is not too 'girlie'.
I am not to sure if this product moisturises or soothes my skin, as I always use a body wash/scrub, but I do think it leaves a nice fragrance on my skin. I have psoriasis and it doesn't irritate my skin, or dry it out.
Overall I would definitely recommend this bath cream, as it makes bathing much more pleasurable. The bubbles are very welcoming and transforms you ordinary bath into a cloud of soft, fluffy bubbles. The price of this cream is great value for money and if you use just a little amount bubble bath, which goes a long way, then the bottle can last you for a long time. I am looking forward to trying other Radox bath creams with different fragrances, and as soon as this one is used up then I will be certainly stocking up. I give this bath cream 5 out of 5 Dooyoo stars.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review :)
There is nothing more i love than sinking into a lovely warm bath to relax after a hard days work. So when i saw this product by Radox i thought i'd give it a try as I've tried Radox shower gels on many occasions and have never been dissatisfied. What also had me sold was the price of £1.55, i can never resist a bargain.
The bottle isn't very big in size. The bath cream is milky looking and not very thick in consistency. The smell is floral but not overpoweringly floral as the smell is actually quite soothing unlike many other bath products i have used which are nauseatingly perfumed.
Using the product.
I poured a little amount into my bath while it was running so it'd mix well and in doing so the bathroom was fulled with it's gorgeous scent. When it came to sinking into my bath i found it very easy to relax as it made my skin silky smooth and floral smells seemed to have very soothing capabilities. It didn't make the water oily and it didn't clog my hair follicles which is something i find issues with when trying new products. After my bath my skin was left feeling soft and i smelled like the bath cream. The softness in my skin lasted roughly a day as i shower day and bath every couple of days so i'd probably washed any remaining product away. The smell lasted only an hour or two before vanishing which didn't bother me at all.
This bath cream does what it says, and i found it very relaxing which is why i'd recommend it to my friends and family. The size of the bottle has no effect on how long this product will last as a little goes far.
Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream
I have to admit to being a bit of a Radox fan, and as such when I saw this in Poundland (for one English pound) I couldn't resist. My local supermarkets seem to like charging twice that for this bubble bath range, and I personally feel this was a real bargain. The bottle contains 500ml of product, and comes in an easy to unscrew bottle with a nice wide pouring neck (I hate having to stand for ages while bubble bath works it's way out of the bottle).
The product itself is a pale apricot colour - which is what I think the scent of the product is. It sates that the product contains milk which I feel adds to the apparent moisturising qualities, and has a perfect PH balance. I have sensitive skin, and have never suffered with dry skin after using this product, so feel this statement is justified. The consistency of the bath cream is nice and thick without being too 'gloopy', although I have to admit when I first open a bottle of this I get a little over excited, and sometimes use more than planned. (This just results in slightly thicker bubbles). The product probably lasts about 5 baths - and I can be a bit heavy handed when I use it. (My boyfriend always complains that the bubbles can take ages to dissipate from the bath)...
The scent is lovely and sweet, and lingers on the skin for a while after a bath - without drowning any perfumes that you may put on after soaking in this. I personally feel the bubbles are perfectly capable of forming themselves if you pour it under a running tap when you first start to run the bath - however if you choose to 'agitate' the water / bubble bath then this will help to form denser longer lasting bubbles.
I would definitely recommend this product, as it smells so lovely, and anything that helps me relax after a long day at work must be good!!!!
On valentines evening, I was surprised with an amazing cooked meal and a bath was drawn for me when I got home. The smell when I opened the door to the bathroom was amazing. This bubble bath was amazingly sweet and made the room smell warm and fresh. I noticed my partner had used about 1/4 of the bottle which had made the bath very bubbly and when getting in it was quite creamy and soft. The bottle was on offer in wilkinsons for 90p.
My bath experience:
I haven't had a bath in a very long time as I usually just opt to have a shower which is quicker and easier for me. I have very long hair which can be troublesome when trying to wash it in the bath too which makes my choice that much easier. Upon getting in this bath, I tied my hair back and dipped myself into it. The soft feel of the water/bath cream combination was amazing. It felt like it was feeding my skin with softness and helping to nurture my skin back to it's softness. The scent lasted for a long time and was left on my skin when I got out for the rest of the evening. The scent made me feel so relaxed and the warmth of the bath also made the relaxing that much easier. I think the amount used in the bath was excellent. I wouldn't have used so much, but having almost a quarter of the 500ml bottle in the bath did make an amazing difference when soaking in the bath. Next time though, im sure i'll use less.
The bath cream:
This range of bath creams by radox are simply excellent. There are lots of variety in scents in the range and you can choose one that suits your tastes. They sell ones which are more suited to men too which is excellent for men who also just need a nice relaxing soak without having to smell like a woman. I would say this particular bath cream is unisex. The smell isn't floral or feminine so I'm sure a man would feel comfortable enough to use it too. It comes in a lovely shaped bottle which is easily stored. For 90p it was definitely a bargain. It's usual cost is around £1.80 and I think even that is still very well priced for the benefits it gives.
I am definitely drawn in my the radox bath cream range. I will be checking out their other flavours at the weekend too as they are still on offer. I thoroughly enjoyed my bath and felt totally relaxed. It helped even more than I could smell dinner being cooked downstairs for me whilst I enjoyed it! I recommend this to anyone seeking a bit of relaxation and to soften your skin whilst having a soak in the bath. I give this product 5/5 stars for being an amazing help to my skin and for making me enjoy having a bath again.
Thanks for reading my review!
My mother in law each year from Christmas gives me and my partner a rather large bag each full of toiletries which she has collected over the year. As much as I am truly grateful finding a space to store all of these can be troublesome. However, the plus side is that I very rarely have to buy toiletries therefore saving money. Due to the amount we receive I am only just finishing off the 2011 selection and haven't even made a start on the bag for 2012!
One item contained in the 2011 gift bag was Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream with Milk. I am a fan of Radox bath products as I always find them useful and they do have a decent variety to the range. Now I had never seen this particular variety before but I am always keen to try products which are geared towards keeping your skin soft and nourished especially as I can suffer with dry skin.
== Soft Care ==
Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream with Milk is a bath cream designed to look after your skin. It's key ingredient being milk which is known to care for and protect your skin. According to Radox "Let the luxurious texture of the cream saturate your bath, then submerge yourself into a pool of sumptuousness". Just like all of Radox products it is pH balanced and has approval from skin care experts.
== Packaging ==
Radox bath creams etc all seem to come in the same tall, rectangular bottles and this is no exception. It comes in a tall, clear plastic bottle with a colour co-ordinating screw on top. It features the Radox logo on the front together with the product name and images of leaves covering the majority of the front of the bottle. On the back there is product information together with how to use it, ingredients list and contact information for Radox should you need to get in touch.
== In Use ==
The bath cream itself is a very pale peach colour which is nice and neutral which is in keeping with the type of product it is especially offering itself as a luxurious, creamy bath product. It has a decent consistency, not too thin where you end up using half a bottle in one bath but then not too thick where you can't pour it out easily. As soon as it touches the water it disperses immediately and creates a mass of white, creamy bubbles.
The fragrance of this product is lovely. Despite having quite a soft fragrance to it which although noticeable it isn't over powering just nicely fragrant. It almost has quite a nutty aroma to it topped off with a citrus hue which makes it an ideal bath cream to use day or night as although it's aroma is gentle compared to more zingy varieties it is soft enough to be soothing but not overly so to make you feel tired. The fragrance does last for quite some time and does soften once it has been diluted.
The result? You end up with bath water which has a lovely silky feel to it which gently covers your skin so your skin then feels wonderfully soft too. The mass of bubbles is a nice touch too and you don't need to use a lot to get such a lot of bubbles. The aroma lingers nicely and you do feel nicely relaxed and what is best is that it offers you a lovely velvety bath at such a good price and you know your skin is going to be cared for. Post bath and although I still need to use a body lotion/butter etc my skin still feels nice and soft and it still has that lovely aroma subtly on my skin.
== Overall ==
I really can't find anything wrong with the product other than it is not readily available (although I have since managed to pick up a bottle from my local B&M store for £1!). It is gentle on my skin, it doesn't cause any irritation and I manage to have a nice relaxing bath which feels a little luxurious. If you can find a bottle then I would definitely recommend that you buy it but it does seem to be a discontinued product which seems such a shame.
