“ Brand: Radox / Texture: Cream / Type: Shower Cream / Subcategory: Moisturiser / What it does: Moisturizes, „
This is a review for Radox Moisture Shower Therapy, (slightly different- possibly the newer upgrade than what is in the photo). Always a favourite in my shower, great value for money.
Radox is a brand of shower gels, creams and bubble bath which I'm sure most of you have heard of. They used to be owned by Sara Lee but since 2009 are owned by Unilever.
***What is it?***
Moisture shower therapy is a shower cream that cares for your skin. It is kinder than regular shower gels as it keeps your body feeling silky and smooth and leaves your skin feeling lovely to touch.
It comes in a 250ml bottle which you can stand up on a shelf in the bathroom or hook onto the shower door. The cream itself is white.
***What's in it?***
On the bottle, Radox state that the following has gone into it:
- 100 years of Radox know-how
- A few drops of jojoba oil
- Some natural chamomile
- A perfect pH balance
- A thumbs up from the skin experts
Sounds good to me!!! Although, there is a bunch of other ingredients but I won't bore you!!
I buy this shower cream regularly. It has a great consistency and feels divine on your skin. The scent is really floral and feminine, and I can smell it for hours after coming out the shower or bath! Sometimes I don't even need to moisturise after I have used this, it leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth.
Shop around for this, at the moment it is £1 in Sainsbury's on offer and you will usually find that most supermarkets have Radox on offer. It's great because you can mix and match and try out there other lovely shower gels. Plus, the bottle is recyclable which is always a positive in my eyes! Talking of eyes, try not to get shower cream in them... OUCH.
Radox shower cream is not a stranger in my bathroom and I often try different types when they are on offer. I did ask Dooyoo to add Moisturise Shower therapy, as I believe it is different to the older Radox moisturise but my suggestion was declined.
The bottle ( different from photo!)
The shower cream is in a clear container with a white lift up hook, it stands on its flip lid. Did I say flip? Flipping nuisance might be more like it! I found it very difficult to open both with wet and dry hands. It didn't get any easier by the time the bottle was empty. "Nil point" for ease of use.
On the front of the bottle is the Radox logo, A SILVER AND GREEN "Shower therapy" label and some very appealing white and lilac flowers and bubbles. It says it cares for your skin with chamomile and jojoba oil, plus a little stamp with a pestle and mortar and the words natural herbs.
On the back in very small green writing, which possibly was easier to read when full than empty, it states that the shower cream is a blend to help keep your skin silky and smooth whilst the chamomile helps you relax.
The bottle contains 250 mls and is recyclable.
What's in it?
According to the bottle, a 100 years of Radox know how, a few drops of jojoba oil, some natural chamomile, a perfect pH balance and a thumbs up from skin experts.
There is also a list of ingredients most of which I've never heard of! It can't be anything too nasty as if it gets in your eyes it says just to rinse well with clean water.
What's it like?
White, creamy and with a faint perfume. Quite thin cream actually although it soon spreads over your skin and although not very bubbly it left my skin feeling clean and silky. So it does what it says, it moisturises as even after drying my skin felt good. As to its perfume the fragrance didn't last long on my skin and certainly wasn't sufficient to make me feel relaxed.
About £1.75 a bottle but I bought it on offer when it was 3 for £3.00 if I remember rightly.
Well, it was OK but nothing special. It did moisturise, but I prefer a little more fragrance and I certainly found the bottle hard to open.
I have just stocked up on four different varieties ofRadox shower creams and gels as they are four for £3 at the moment at Tesco which mans they work out at 75p each for a 250ml size which is not bad for a shower gel and this shower cream is the first one that I have tried.
The bottle itself is clear and it has a hook handle so it is ideal to take with you to use in the showers at the gym as it will hang off the pipes or soap tray. The lid is on the bottom so the cream is always ready to be poured out, you would think all dispensers would be like that to make your life so much easier however for some reason the Original Sauce shampoo still has a slopped lid so it cannot stand upright.
It has a rather floral smell which is very nice but quite feminine so not one for the men and that is a good thing as to be honest it is an excellent shower cream and I do not want to share it with anyone. It is thick so you do not need to use a lot and while I'm sure it does have some moisturising qualities personally I still find myself using a moisturiser as well after my shower.
After use my skin feels smooth and very clean and the smell does linger on your skin for a while after use. It lathers up really well and so you do not need to use a lot of it and given that it is on offer at Tesco at the moment I plan to stock up now that I know that it is a good product.
Even though we've lived in our house for several years it's only this summer we've got around to having a shower fitted. With the novelty factor of being able to have a shower ever present I've been trying out lots of different shower gels and creams and one I've bought a few times now is this Radox Moisturise Shower Therapy with chamomile and jojoba oil.
Although I like the sound of Lush products and those kind of gimmicky products that cost quite a bit all I really want from a shower cream is a nice scent, moisturising capabilities and a good price. This product ticked all those boxes on first examination.
The shower cream comes in a 250ml bottle with a hook on top so you can hook it somewhere in your shower while you use it. The bottle also has a flat lid so you can stand it on the lid if, like me, there isn't anywhere to hook the bottle in your shower. On the back it tells us what's gone into it and this is: 100 years of Radox know how, a few drops of jojoba oil, some natural chamomile, a perfect ph balance and a thumbs up from the skin experts.
As I have dry skin I always choose moisturising versions of bath and shower products wherever possible and this one was selling for 99p both times I've bought it from Boyes. I generally sniff the product before I buy to make sure it smells nice and this one has a lightly floral scent that is just lovely.
The cream itself is a white liquid, it isn't especially thick so you need to pay attention to how much you squeeze out. I use it with a body net and a tiny bit goes a long way so I don't need to buy anymore shower cream for weeks.
It lathers up brilliantly and I generally end up with bubbles flying about all over the place! The scent is gorgeous as you shower and stays on your skin for a few hours afterwards but isn't so strong it would interfere with perfume. The bubbles rinse off without any problems so I guess the only question left to answer is does it moisturise?
Yes it does, my skin is extremely difficult to moisturise effectively and I either end up with moisturising products that don't absorb or ones that don't make any difference to the dryness. This shower cream leaves my skin soft and silky but with no oily residue and it keeps it soft and silky all day long. The only areas I have to apply lotion to afterwards are my shins and elbows which is no great surprise as they are particularly dry areas.
Overall I love this shower cream, it smells gorgeous and girly so not one for the boys, lasts ages, moisturises my dry skin well and costs only 99p. Brilliant and I highly recommend it to the girls or any boys who don't care about smelling of flowers!
