Here I go again - yet another review of one of my new Christmas present shower gels! I always get lots of these for my birthday in November and then again at Christmas and they last me pretty much all year - yes my husband and my sister buy me that many! Mind you it is lovely to go to the bathroom cupboard and have such a choice of lovely things to try!
Today's review is about one called Radox Spa Radiant Shower Scrub which is currently available in Asda for £2. I don't know whether it is in stock at Boots but it is worth mentioning that they often have offers on the Radox products so keep your eyes open!
This shower scrub comes in a plastic bottle which stands with the lid at the bottom so the product is always at the dispensing end of the container - an advantage as far as I am concerned. I often end up balancing things upside down so that I can get the last bit of whatever it is out before I throw it away.
There is no handle on this one so it has to stand on the shelf in the shower. I find the ones with the handles a bit easier to use but at least this one is a comfortable shape to hold so I don't end up dropping it in the shower!
There is a flash on the front of the bottle informing us that this is a new product which is probably why hubby bought it for me - he knows that I love to try out new shower gels. Apart from the Radox logo and the name of the product there is also a note to tell us that this contains fig and caring natural Neroli oil.
As with all Radox shower products it is Ph balanced so is hypoallergenic. The other advantage with this container is that since it is plastic it is recycleable and can be placed in with the weekly recycling.
On the back of the bottle there is a full list of ingredients and the usual warnings about not getting the shower gel in your eyes.
As you look at the clear plastic container you can see the pale pink shower scrub and the bits in it which will provide the scrub effect. I flipped open the lid and sniffed the contents. I could smell the fig but it was not too strong and was offset against the other sweeter smell which is presumably the Neroli oil.
In the shower the product produces a nice lather with the fragrance wafting around the room in the steam from the hot water. As I massaged it onto my skin I could feel the scrub effect although it was quite minimal and not like a specific scrub product. To be fair this is what I would expect from this shower scrub as I see it as a product that would get me clean and give my skin a freshening up sort of feeling. If I wanted to really exfoliate my skin I would use a product made especially for the purpose.
After I had finished my shower my skin felt clean, fresh and soft and the fragrance of the shower scrub lingered in the air for a while afterwards too.
In conclusion I would say that this product did exactly what I expected it to and the result was very nice. I probably won't buy it for myself as I tend to prefer the ones with more luxurious lather and I leave the body scrubbing to a product designed for that purpose but I shall enjoy using the remainder of it!
Summary: Does what I would expect from a shower scrub
