I keep a bottle of Radox on the side of my bath, usually this one, which is to "Restore Harmony" but I like it because it smells of lavender and is very refreshing to use in the evenings to calm me down before bed time. I have tried a number of difference Radox Therapies, and generally I do quite like this brand. One really good thing about Radox is it's cheap. Often I can get this bottle, which is 500ml, for around a £1. Even at full price of around £1.80 it's not expensive for it's size. I don't have baths all the time, usually I use the shower for quickness, so a bath is a treat or to help relax me or if I have backache, therefore I tend to add rather generous amounts to the tub so it gets very foamy! Even so, at around a bath a week this lasts me a about 4 or 5 months. I'm not sure there is any actual medical benefit to using it, it's a therapy in the loose sense of the word. It's a combination of the scent which is calming and relaxing as is the hot water and "you" time which makes it feel relaxed. I really like the smell of lavender, and this is quite a strong scent. There is also apparently waterlily in there, however I can't detect this scent. When using this my bathroom is flooded with a nice lavender smell as well as the water and the scent remains on my skin after I have dried off. This bottle is a tall square shape, which is handy as it fits into the corner of my bath, against the wall without taking up too much space. The bottle is clear and the liquid which is quite think is a semi-transparent purple colour, to match the lavender. The cap is easy to screw on and off and is not child proof. If you can get this Radox therapy on offer for £1 then try it, it's a great buy for the price!
Radox Relax Bath Therapy Having moved into a new and larger flat at the beginning of December 2012 my partner and I now have a bathroom which holds the luxury of a bath. After years of only having the option of a shower this is possibly my favourite feature of our new flat and so far I have been making good use of it. When we first moved in one of the first things I purchased was a nice large bottle of Radox Relax Bath Therapy. I have used this bubble bath many years ago when I was living at my mums and I remembered liking it rather a lot. The bubble bath is a lovely shade of purple and comes packaged in a clear and tall plastic bottle with a purple lid to match the liquid inside. On the front of the bottle you have the Radox logo along with an image which I presume is meant to represent a relaxing image and on the reverse of the bottle you have the usual list of ingredients, instructions for use and contact details for the manufacturer. The liquid in the bottle is of a good consistency, it is not so thick that it takes ages to pour and not so runny that you accidentally pour in too much. I would say it is just right to be able to add your exact desired amount. The lid of the bottle is a screw lid and it is relatively easy to unscrew so this maybe something to bear in mind with regards to storage if you have little ones who are into everything! Bubbly Bath Time Personally I love nothing better than spending my Sunday evenings soaking in a nice bubble bath enjoying a good book for an hour, as you can imagine this is quite relaxing in itself and is another reason I was drawn to the Radox Relax range. To make my bath lovely and bubbly I usually run the hot water and add just a small amount of Radox Relax to the running water, this instantly begins to create bubbles in the water and I was surprised at how little I need to add to achieve a lot of bubbles! The scent of the bubble bath is evident almost straight away and like most 'relaxing' products there is a strong hint of lavender among what I would describe as being a very herbal a light scent. I find the scent to be very nice and reasonably strong without crossing the border into being overpowering. As I mentioned earlier I like to spend around an hour in the bath by which time I am suitably relaxed, the water is starting to cool and my fingers and toes are looking a little pruney! I long for the day when my bubbles will last the duration of my long baths however I am yet to find a bubble bath which can meet this need, Radox Relax does put up a good fight for the title of "The Longest Lasting Bubbles" however it seems to fall short by around half an hour which results in me lying in simply a bathful of water for the last half an hour. It is nice to note though that while the bubbles do disappear the nice aroma remains for the duration of my bath. I have tried adding extra bubble bath liquid to make the bubbles stay longer but this had no effect so I returned to using my lesser amount. After completing my nice long soak I usually empty the water from the bath and give it a rinse round with the shower head. I am always please to note that the Radox Relax doesn't leave any kind of residue in the bottom of the bath and this means I simply have to do a quick rinse before continuing my relaxing evening. Relaxing Ingredients? The ingredients for those who are interested can be found on the reverse of the bottle and read as follows: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Parfum, Sine Adipe Lac, Lavandula Angustifolia Flower Extract, Nymphaea Alba Root Extract, Citric Acid, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Sodium Lactate, Polyquaternium-7, Limonene, Linalool, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, CI 17200, CI 42090. These don't really mean a lot to me and I have never had any kind of skin reaction with the product but others may have allergies etc so always best to check. Recommended Relaxation? Oh yes definitely! I love my Sunday evenings in the bath and I will be repurchasing Radox Relax again in the future when my bottle eventually runs out but at the moment I still have plenty left. I always feel relaxed after my long baths and I would say that I do feel slightly more relaxed when using this product compared to when I tried a bath with no bubble bath so this suggests to me that the relax element of the product is effective enough. Radox Relax Bath Therapy can currently be purchased in most supermarkets and is usually priced at around the £2 mark for a 500ml bottle. Thanks for reading :)
This is a review of Radox Relax Bath Therapy which I have just come to the end of. The bottle says restore harmony, with lavender & waterlilly bath soak. I received this as part of a bumper bag of smellies from the MIL at Christmas. She does this gift for me every year and stocks up on Radox as she knows I like a good soak at the end of the day. Packaging The bottle is clear and a decent sized 500ml. This bubble bath is a beautiful deep purple colour which matches the purple screw cap lid. Long and thin, the bottles don't take up too much room and they are quite solid and don't fall over or leak. Brand I love radox, any fragrance they make is nice to my nose and they have been blending naturial herbs since 1908 so one presumes they know what they are doing here! In use I slosh a small amount in to running water and this generates plenty of bubbles which last a decent amount of time. The bubble bath smels floral and fresh but not overpowering. I'm not a huge fan of lavender but this is not overwhelming in this product. My thoughts As I said earlier, I haven't found a radox I don't like yet but this one is particularly nice with relaxing properties. I always try to make time for a bath once my duties are done for the day and it can last between 5 minutes and an hour (depending on what's on TV and how good the book is that I am reading). This uninterrupted time is definitely relaxing and some good me time. Price As this was a present I don't know how much my bottle cost but would presume it was bought whilst on offer as the MIL is very organised in this respect. At the moment Asda sell this bottle for £1.90 which I think is a fair price for the amount and quality. Final word I love this product and it will get top marks from me. Obviously it is best to buy when on offer but I do find one bottle lasts me around a month and that is average use of once a day. A bottle of bubble bath makes a great, inexpensive 'thinking of you' present and in this case would work well for someone suffering from stress. Just make sure they have got a bath first or it would be a rubbish present!
I am a firm believer that Radox are a trusted brand when it comes to bath time. I was in the supermarket at the weekend when I noticed that they were doing a roll back deal on Radox bath products and being that I love their herbal range I picked up a bottle of the lavender Radox Relax Bath for just £1. The Product ~ As with all the Radox herbal range this bath soak comes packaged in a standard 500ml bottle which is transparent plastic and has the brand logo 'Radox' imprinted on either side of the bottle. The bottle is transparent to display the rich colour of the bubble bath within, this product being a deep purple and this is topped off with a screw cap top which is also purple to match the contents. The bottle is illustrated with what can only be described as a fusion of herbs and a small amount of text to detail the contents within. Although tall, the bottle stands quite solidly at the side of the bath and is unlikely to be knocked over until the contents are nearly out. Upon screwing off the top of the bottle you can easily pour the contents out into the bath. The liquid itself is of a medium consistency rather like a washing up liquid and has a gorgeous smell which is softly lavender in fragrance. This product does include lavender and water lily, however the lavender is by far the most fragrant of the two with the water lily adding perhaps a small element of sweetness to the overall scent. The ingredients within this bath soak are as follows: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Parfum, Sine Adipe Lac, Lavandula Angustifolia Flower Extract, Nymphaea Alba Root Extract, Citric Acid, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Sodium Lactate, Polyquaternium-7, Limonene, Linalool, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, CI 17200, CI 42090. Price and Availability ~ As with a large number or Radox products this bath soak can be bought from the majority of stores including pharmacies and supermarkets. I bought mine from Asda over the weekend and paid just £1.00 for it, a price which is often met by other popular chains. To Use ~ As with all bath products this one can be used simply by pouring your required amount of liquid underneath a running tap and then swishing through the water for maximum foam. I find that a little of this bath soak goes a long way and a capful in generally enough for a standard bath. My Experience ~ In my opinion this is a great product as it not only looks great at the side of your bath tub but it also produces a rich foam to the bath which leaves you, the user feeling totally relaxed. The smell within the bath will soak into the skin leaving a lovely soft fragrance whilst the smell will linger in the house after the bath is drained. The bubbles produced by this bubble bath last for ages and are not destined to die after the first glimpse of soap. Finally this bath soak does exactly as it says on the tin by producing a lovely scent that leaves you feeling totally relaxed after a busy and stressful day. I would definitely recommend this bath therapy both as a treat for yourself and as a great gift idea. Overall therefore, this is a smashing product, hence I am scoring it 5 stars out of 5. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!
Having always had a shower previously I was new to a proper bath and was recommended to try Radox. At first I was overwhelmed by the large range of 'flavours' and fragrances available and decided to go for this relax scent with lavander. It comes in a 500ml transparent bottle and has a deep purple coloured liquid with a lavander sprig on the front. The back of the bottle holds the contact information, ingredients and size. The cap is a deep purple matched to the contents and screws on and off easily. I paid £1 a bottle and just recently Sainsbury had all fragrances for just 80p each meaning I now have a large stock for future use depending on my mood. If not on offer they are generally around £1.50-£2 but they can be found with money off or BOGOF at most times. The actual bath soak itself it thick and doesn't have to be poured generously to give a large bath filled with white soapy suds. The smell is beautiful albeit a little mild. It's perfect for taking a long relaxing bath complete with candles and a glass of wine or for just before bed making you tired enough to slip into a deep, peaceful sleep. The smell lingers for a while and attatches to the skin giving it a light hint of the fragrance. After this encounter I started to buy all the fragrances and always have a few bottles on the go depending on what I need from them, there's always something to fit.
I get through an awful lot of Bath foams/soaks and one of preferred brands at the moment is Radox. I like the ingredients, fragrance and the value for money that they offer and usually I can find a bottle of the brand on offer in various places costing about £1.00 a bottle if I'm lucky. I love the scent that is lavender and find it relaxing so when I spotted this fragranced one I couldn't wait to get it home and try it out. The Packaging: The see through bottle holds 500ml of the lilac, transparent bath soak and there is a picture of lavender on the front of it and I am told that it is Radox Bath Therapy 'Restore harmony with lavender & waterlilly bath soak' and that Radox has been blending natural herbs since 1908. On the back of the bottle we are told a bit about the product, the ingredients and size is stated and contact details for H & BC UK ltd (the manufacturer of the product) are given. This has a purple plastic screw on/off cap to the top of it and all in all it's a nice looking if not rather plain looking bottle. A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Back Of The Bottle: A million things on your mind? Let our relaxing blend of fragrant lavender and delicate waterlilly bring moments of calm into your busy day. Just sink into the delicate bubbles and enjoy some time to yourself. The world can wait for an hour. The Bath Soak Itself: You don't need very much of this bath soak at all the get a generous amount of thick white bubbles and the fragrance of this is light and lovely. Rather feminine it does have a gentle aroma of flowers to it which are sweet too and there is a hint of lavender to it but nothing heavy, harsh or overpowering, that scent simply is the base note of the bath soak. This makes the water soft in a none greasy way and is a relaxing soak really. The bubbles last the duration of my stay in the water (which can be a good hour and half if I'm in a lazy mood!). When I get out of the bath I am left with smooth skin and a lightly scented body! I feel a bit more relaxed for using it and all in all though I can't get over excited about this bath soak and feel its more a day-to-day one opposed to anything special I can't knock it either as it does no harm to me and/or my skin at all. Economical and nice enough! If not found on offer this can be found in all good supermarkets/chemists at about £1.89 a bottle.
