Over the past few months I've been enjoying the relaxing experience of having an evening bath. I wasn't unclean before this recent penchant for baths ... sticking to showers in the main but I thought it would be relaxing to have more baths and also hoped it would stop me watching too much TV and thus reduce my evening snacks intake!
I've tried numerous types of bath products but I've got to say the product I've been most pleased with to date it Radox Timeout Bath Therapy. Most people will have heard of Radox the brand, as they have been in existence over 100 years. The packaging of my bath soak states that they have been blending since 1908 which makes me think they must know a thing or two about getting the product right.
The bottle is about 20cms tall with a square shape to it. The purple bottle contains 500ml of thick purple liquid. This concentrated liquid means that when I add to my running bath water only a small amount is needed to fill the room with a heavenly aroma and fill the bath with welcoming suds. The main herbal ingredients are mimosa and lavender which I love especially in the evening as I find the scent relaxing and helps me wind-down after a long day. This love is mainly for the smell of lavender, which I really enjoy. Before using the product I wasn't sure of mimosa and what its benefits were and I've done a bit of research, which states that the plant is used in medicine to help aid insomnia and with sleeping. Radox also mention on the packaging that it's great for lifting your mood. Now I cannot say for certain if the ingredient has lifted my mood as to be honest a relaxing 20 minutes in the bath already does enough to life my spirits.
In addition to the lovely smell and luxurious bubbles the product delivers I also find it very gentle on my skin. I like to soak for a good 20 minutes or so and I have found other cheaper products on the market make my skin dry and irritable after that amount of time submerged in the bath. Not with this Radox product. My skin isn't dry or irritated at all and infact I find it leaves my skin softer. It does state on the packaging that it has a 'perfect pH balance' and my skin appears to appreciate this.
The packaging also contains a full list of the ingredients, which are easy to read for those who need to be careful with their skin. If you are interested you can obtain ingredient information for this and all Radox products at www.radox.co.uk (I wont bore you here with the long list). Another thing I think is really good is that Radox clearly state on the plastic packaging that it's recyclable (but you must remove the cap before sending for recycling). I think this is really helpful as I'm often unsure whether or not certain plastics are recyclable.
As for the price this can vary I got my last bottle on offer in local B&M Bargains for £1 which was really good value. In most supermarkets they seem to retail about £1.90 but can be found on offer on occasions.
Overall I'm very please with Radox timeout bath therapy, it last ages, is kind to my skin and helps me relax so all in all a 5 out of 5 from me.
Thanks for reading
This is one of my favourite Radox products and is one of the best bubble baths I have ever tried.
I paid £1 for this which is cheap for a Radox bubble bath and doesn't cost much more than the cheap own brand bubble baths and is so much better quality.
The first thing that attracted me to this herbal bath is the colour it is a lovely indulgent purple colour and stands out and immediately it looks like a good quality product.
When you pour this under running water it makes the bath go purple and then a couple of swirls and it is transformed into loads of bubbles. I find with this being such a good quality product that I don't need to use much to create lots of bubbles so it lasts really well.
This herbal bath is called Time Out and that is what it really feels like. The best thing about it is the smell. It has lavendar in and smells absolutely gorgeous and fills my whole bathroom with a lovely relaxing fragrance. It really makes me feel relaxed and cosy and is wonderful to sink into such a wonderful smelling bath.
The bubbles last really well even after using shampoo and conditioner and I can smell this bubble bath on my skin when I get out of the bath. My skin feels soft and smooth after being in a bath filled with this so I cannot recommend it enough.
This is fabulous. If you buy it you won't regret it.
There is nothing I like more than a long, hot soak in the bath and with three young children to look after this is not something I get to do very often. When I do get the opportunity to have a soak I like to use Radox Herbal Bath and the one I am using at the moment is the Time Out.
Radox Herbal Bath Time Out contains Minosa which is known to aid tranquility. Leaving you feeling calm and relaxed after a busy, stressful day. I don't know if it's the bath or the Radox but I certainly feel more relaxed after a nice bath.
Radox Herbal Bath has been proven to relax, it reduces tension significantly than a bath without Radox. It has a relaxing fragrance and contains calming essential oils. All the bubble baths in the Radox range smell really nice.
It comes in a 500ml bottle, the Time Out one is purple and the other varieties are different colours. It is easy to use you simply have to pour under running water and relax, you don't need to use much and you get loads of bubbles, if anything be wary you don't get too many. Avoid getting into eyes but if you do rinse well.
There are many varities of Radox and I think they are all pretty much the same, whether it is Time Out or Muscle Soak they all offer a nice relaxing bath with lots of bubbles. I find baths are really relaxing anyway but using Radox gives them that something extra, I think mentally you feel you're more relaxed.
I love a nice bath and will continue to use Radox to make my baths even more relaxing.
With Lavender and Mimosa, this Radox herbal bath soak is part of its 'Time Out' range of bathcare. I like Radox products in general, I have tried just about every colour and fragrance going as I do think that a nice soak in the bath with a good book is one of life's little luxuries that we all need from time to time!
Anyway, I got this particular Radox for Christmas this year and of course tried it straightaway. One thing I like about Radox is that you get a good lot of thick luxurious bubbles, it always feels a lot more decadant when there are lots of bubbles! The fragrance of this one is nice and inoffensive enough, just enough lavender for my liking.
As usual, it leaves my skin feeling nice and soft and no need for additional mosituriser. A great way to end the day before bedtime and certainly helps me nod off well.
Radox is probably the best known and leading manufacturer of bubble baths. They are more expensive than the stores own brands but every now and again I like to buy them.
The one I am reviewing today is the Radox Herbal Bath Time Out with Lavender and Mimosa.
The bubble bath comes in a plastic bottle with a screw top cap and holds 500ml. Down the side of the bottle is embossed with Radox. The bottle is see through and you can see the fantastic bright purple coloured bath foam.
When you open the bottle you get a lovely scent coming out, it is lavender but there is something else there a sweet smell, perhaps that might be the mimosa I am not sure what that smells like. It's a really nice smell and not overpowering. I like the smell of lavender but I know many people don't but I would say that this isn't a very strong lavender smell.
Lavender has been used to help people relax for many years as it has a calming effect on the body so it's not surprising that Radox would use it in their herbal bath foams. However what I did not know that Mimosa is known to lift your mood so they work really well together to help you unwind.
So all you need to do is start running the bath and add some of the bath foam. The product quickly foams up to give you lots of bubbles and the scent fills the room. Then jump into a nice hot bubble bath and lie back and relax. The smell is wonderful and the bubbles last right through the length of the bath and I like to have long baths! The scent is still noticeable lightly on my skin once I get out of the bath and my skin feels soft and not at all dry.
I like this bubble bath, it smells nice and gives lots of good bubbles. I find the smell of lavender very relaxing so will often choose a bubble bath with it in. This was a nice change to just a plain lavender bubble bath and I would certainly buy it again. It is more expensive than the shop brands I usually buy this bottle retails for around £1.58 but it's nice for a little treat now and again. If you watch out you can often get it on a 2 for £2 special offer which is great.
The Radox Herbal Bath Time Out really is the best in its range for a nice relaxing bath, setting you up for bed time!
The first thing you'll notice is the packaging, that's what made me pick it up off the shelf. Its rich dark purple looks very tempting and when you unscrew the cap and take a sniff, it certainly doesn't disappoint!
The lavender is lovely smell and proven to help relax, it's ideal to have a bath just before bedtime, mix it with a couple of candles and some light music and you'll be fighting to stay awake!
This is also a great lotion to use if you have hyper active kids and bathes them before their bedtime, it puts them in a relaxed mindset making bedtime a lot easier.
I'm sure that supermarkets own brands have similar effects, though I do love the smell of Radox products and do tend to use these in the shower/bath a lot.
What first attracted me to this bubble bath was the packaging, The rich dark purple colour, and also the picture on the bottle to.
Before i fell pregnant i could drop off to sleep in a wink, but pregnancy hosts a whole load of problems, backache, sickness etc, and i had them all. At the end of the day all i wanted to do was chill out have a bath and go to bed but was finding i couldn't get to sleep as easy. A friend recommended this product and i loved it from the beginning, as soon as i opened the bottle a gorgeous aroma hit me, the lavender smelt lovely, i think i went a bit over the top when pouring into my bath and added half a bottle, but i loved the bubbles ,after being in the bath for 5 minutes i could feel myself drifting off!
Lavender really does work wonders for getting to sleep, radox have done themselves proud with this product and many other's too, it's also excellent value for money to
OK this is THE one - this is my favourite of all of the varieties of Radox Herbal Bath and it's Time Out with Lavender. Well so far anyway, but I bet there are still one or two I haven't tried! LOL!
It comes in the same square plastic bottle as all the others but this one is a beautiful rich shade of purple in colour, and the smell of lavender is - well words fail me (and that doesn't happen to me very often I can tell you!) I genuinely can't think of an adjective which is emphatic enough. It is gorgeous, heavenly, wonderful and then some!
I have long been interested in aromatherapy and know only too well the therapeutic benefits of lavender particularly as a relaxant in this case.
If you've had a busy day slip into a nice warm bath complete with a liberal helping of this bubble bath poured under the running tap to make sure that the bubbles are plentiful and thick. The fragrance fills the air in the bathroom and lingers after the bath has finished.
Lie in the warm, fragranced water and let all your troubles float away on the bubbles. The lavender will help to soothe away any traces of a headache and generally help you to calm down and relax.
Even the container itself is particularly pretty on this one. I know all of them are basically the same, being molded plastic and about nine inches high with stoppers that match the bubble bath, but the beautiful colour of this one really makes it look something special.
There is a colour co-ordinated picture on the front of each bottle and the one on Time Out is of the silhouette of a bird flying gracefully over the sea, painted in shades of blue and purple. It seems to invite you to just drift away and leave your troubles behind.
As I said earlier in this opinion there are many different varieties of Radox Herbal Baths, each advertised for use on a different occasion. All of them are designed to 'relax tired muscles and unwind tired minds'.
If you're interested in the background information Radox is made by a firm called Sara Lee, a part of H & BC UK Ltd. I must admit I was surprised when I first read that on the back of the bottle, I would have guessed that it was made by one of the big companies like Proctor and Gamble. Oh well, you live and learn don't you.
Each one also carries 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.
A word of advice to those of you who may be pregnant, take care when using any product containing essential oils, even bubble baths. Make sure that the oils aren't harmful to the mother to be.
They all cost pretty much the same - £1.50 to £2 per bottle, but there are often two for the price of one offers at the supermarkets so keep your eyes peeled - I do! I make sure I have got my own supply topped up and often buy some as presents as well while they're on offer!
So there you are, now you all know which is my favourite of them all! When we move into our new house this will be invaluable when I have been working in the garden or doing a spot of painting.
