Radox Nourish Bath Therapy
Advantages: Such a lovely smell
I do love having a soak in the bath with my book, shutting myself away from all the chaos in the house and having some relaxing 'me' time. I bought myself this radox nourishing bubble bath a few weeks ago and I really rate it highly!
A bit about Radox
Radox is a brand that I always remember even from being really young. I tend to associate it with the orginal deep blue bubble bath. I have always really liked radox as it seems to create much more bubbles than other brands and have used it regularly.
Radox is owned by Sara Lee which is a new thing as before September 09 it was owned by Unilever. Radox believe that women need to take out some time during the day to unwind and relax and believe that the Radox bath soaks are the way for women to do this. They believe that whoever you are whether you're young or old, a professional or not, with kids, without kids it doesn't matter, you deserve some 'you time' which I happen to agree with.Radox try to put across the message that relaxing is really important as it makes you happy and if you're happy then hopefully those around you are happy too. They, therefore, view their products as types of therapy! Very different to the kind of therapy you imagine when you hear the word!
Radox offer a range of products all aimed towards creating a refreshing, relaxing experience for both men and women. These include:
well being ranges (including hand soaps)
Shower smoothies (These are like scrubs and moisturisers)
Each one has an aim to it, for example to 'relax and unwind', 'stress relief', 'muscle therapy' and more. The combination of the ingredients create the aim.
Nourishing herbal bath therapy
This is the one which I bought and I chose it mainly because it claimed it would relax me but I also chose it because I liked the smell. This bath 'therapy' comes in the traditional Radox style bottle which is tall and slim. I do like the design of the bottle, it doesn't take up much surface space and it doesn't try and be too clever. Instead it's a very simple tall and slim design. It is see-through which I like as it means you can see when you're running low so need to send out for extra supplies! The picture on the front doesn't really give away any clues as to what it actually will smell like which suits me fine, it means you have an excuse to take the lid off and have a little sniff!
The smell of this therapy is a very subtly sweet one. It's main ingredients are shea butter and ginger. Now I don't like the smell of ginger but that didn't put me off this. I could barely smell the ginger, it blended in very wel with the shea butter. If you are looking for a gingery smell then this isn't for you. The shea butter is one of my favourite ingredients in bath products as it just seems so luxurious! The smell is very sweet almost like toffee but it's blended with the ginger so it doesn't create too sweet an aroma which is just perfect for bathing. After having a bath the bathroom is left smelling nicely too which is always a bonus! It isn't the sort of scent though that leaves you oozing with the smell hours after bathing which I always think is a good thing!
Using the therapy
To get the liquid out of the bottle you simply unscrew the lid and pour it into the bath. You do not need to use much at all in order to create a good amount of bubbles and a nice milky texture to your bath. It isn't at all oily so you don't need to worry about slippery baths and instead it's more of a milky texture which I think makes your bath seem more luxurious.
When you get to the bottom of the bottle it is slightly difficult to get it out so you can use the old trick of standing it upside down to help get it out!
I only use a drop or two and it creates many bubbles which are just fine! When I have used it at my mother's house though I've needed to use a bit more so I think it depends upon your water pressure or how hard/soft your water is.
When bathing in this the ginger ingredient is meant to help you to relax whilst the shea butter moisturises your skin. Shea butter has a very good cleansing and moisturising element to it and I do feel afterwards as though my skin is softer.
I really do rate the Radox range, they are very affordable- you can find them in pound shops if you're lucky but in Supermarkets they cost around £1.30 which is a complete bargain considering that they work really well and are a well known brand but they don't over charge like so many others.
I really enjoy using this therapy as it smells lovely and it does make my skin feel nice. I always think I've had a little bit of luxury when I've used this in my bath. The bubbles it creates are just fantastic and lovely to lie back in too.
I can't think of any negatives except that it can be awkward to get the last few bits out of the bottle but you can get around this by standing it on it's head!
Really do recommend it as it's just so relaxing or if this smell isn't for you then I recommend you try another of the bath soaks that Radox have to offer.
