Advantages: Leaves skin feeling soft, bubbles last for most of bath, easy to mix into water, reasonably priced
I've recently been taking baths more than I used to (I'm not unhygienic - I just always used to take showers instead!) and usually purchase whichever bubble bath is on offer at the time I need a new bottle. This Radox bath soak attracted me by it's price in Boots - £1 for a large 500ml bottle. It's usual price in there is £2. The bottle is clear so the colour of the bath soak shows through, that being cream.
It's added to a running bath tub - I usually swirl the water a few times to mix it in. I add it to the water as it's running, rather than squirting it onto the bottom of the bath before adding water - just because I find it blends into the water much easier. It isn't very thick in consistency but it's thick enough so it needs a bit of help to dissolve into the water to create the bubbles by swirling my hand in. I find it creates a lot of bubbles from one big squeeze of the bottle so a little goes quite a long way. The bottle is very flexible so it's easy to squeeze a blob out! The bottle has a screw cap but I don't find that much of a problem with bath soaks because it gets used before getting into the water. The cap is quite flat so it's easy to stand upside down to get those last important bits.
The bubbles last for most of my bath - I'm not the type that spends hours soaking though so I doubt the bubbles would last over a marathon soak because they've disappeared a fair bit by the time I'm getting out, which is after about 10 minutes. The scent is lovely and was the reason I chose this type particularly. It smells of ginger and shea butter - shea butter being one of my favourites and hence my reason for this choice. I find the shea butter comes through fairly strong which I really like. The scent is a big positive as I find it lingers on my skin after getting out and lasts for a little time afterwards too. If those scents aren't your thing, Radox offer a wide range of other bath soaks as well including one with calendula and rose which I can also personally recommend.
This bath soak's main quality is 'nourish' and I would say that is correct. My skin has felt softer and smoother from using this, although I can't be certain whether that is a result of using this alone or due to a combination of using this and my other daily moisturisers etc. I certainly feel that it contributes to my skin's softness though and it's definitely a bath product I would purchase again, whether on offer or at full price which is a good sign. I feel even at £2, I would receive value for money as I've found that my bottle has lasted me a good few weeks, although I only take a bath rather than shower probably 3 times per week so for daily baths it would get used up a lot faster.
Overall, I would recommend this bath soak - it's a beautifully scented product and delivers on the nourishing aspect too. I feel it's price is also reasonable. I'm giving it 5 stars because I've not come across any negatives and would definitely purchase again.
Thanks for reading :o)
Summary: A super priced bath soak, would definitely recommend
