I don't often use Radox but from time to time will buy it when I see it on offer. I bought it from the reduced box in the chemist and it was only £1.
The first thing I noticed about the bottle was that it had a concealed holder that would make it easy to hang up in the shower. It is quite thick and sturdy so I was confident that it would not snap under the weight of the bottle. The bottle itself is quite plain and has the name Radox and Moisturise on the front.
Due to the shape it will be best to stand the bottle up with this at the top so it is best to make sure the flip lid is closed and nothing seeps out. The bottle is quite substantial and I can verify can stand a couple of drops into the shower. It is a conservative design on the front as it just has Radox in green and then lilac and lemon flowers behind it. The writing is lilac and tells me that it will care for my skin and has jojoba and camomile in it.
The cream itself is nice and thick with a fresh pleasant smell although I have to admit I cannot identify the smell. It is not overpowering but does last for a while after use.
I always use a scrunchy and this makes a small amount of cream last for the full shower. Even though it is thick when it is being washed of it falls away quite quickly. The bubbles come very quickly but they dissolve quickly as well, and I find I don't need to use a great deal so it is really economical.
The moisturising side of it works well. I can normally judge how good a moisturiser is by the effect it has on my elbows and this is excellent.

The bottle holds 250ml and for the time it lasts is very good value. I would recommend this and also point out that smaller chemists often have this on offer.
More often than not, almost everywhere I go has some kind of offer on this Radox shower gel, whether it be Sainsburys, Superdrug or Boots (my main places where I'd do a toiletry shop). Costing around 99p for a 250ml bottle it seemed a really good bargain so I bought a few in the range and this Moisturising bottle was one of them.
It comes in an easy to use plastic bottle with a top down lid. The packaging is more updated than the picture as it has a lovely swirl flower design on the front in yellow and pink and the word "Moisturise" aligned horizontally across the top of the bottle. The bottle faces down so the shower gel can easily be squeezed out and when nearing the end of its usage it is already all flowing down to the spout of the bottle. There is also a handy flip up white plastic hook embedded in the design of the bottle so when in use I can easily hang it up in arms reach and don't have to keep bending down when I am in showering mode!
The shower gel itself is a thick, creamy, white soapy liquid. It is described as aa caring blend of and consists of chamomile and jojoba oil. For me chamomile is something I associate with tea and putting me to sleep and really the main smell I can put my finger on is the jojoba which smells really sweet. The smell is really light and subtle when showering and nice for a slightly rejuvenating shower.
I use a shower puff when showering with this and I found this shower gel lathers up rather nicely and not a lot is required to create a good amount of bubbles. It is easy to use all over, and with my shower puff it scrubs nicely and removes dirt leaving my skin feeling really clean and refreshed afterwards. As a "moisturising" shower gel I do find it effective as it does not leave my skin feeling super dry and unnourished but I do still have to cream my whole body afterwards!
Overall, as I only paid roughly £1 or so I think it is great value reasonable especially since I can make it last a good 2 weeks. It smells lovely, and washes well and does moisturise me skin nicely, so I would totally recommend this.
Usually when I'm buying shower gel I go for something fruity like Original Source, but my mum always picks me up bargains when she's out shopping, and this Radox Moisture Shower Therapy was one of the shower gels she very kindly got me.
This is part of the Shower Therapy range from Radox, and promises to moisturise your skin and make it feel silky and smooth. This contains jojoba oil and chamomile. The jojoba oil is to moisturise, and the chamomile is to help you relax... that's what Radox claim anyway!
It comes in a white plastic bottle. At the bottom is a cap which you can stand the bottle on, or at the top you can use the handle to hang this up in the shower. The shower gel is easily squeezed out as it will sink to the bottom whether sitting this on its end, or hanging it up.
On the front of the bottle is the Radox logo, the word 'moisturise' down the side, and a picture of some pastel purple flowers. Very simple and clean looking.
When squeezed out, the shower is white and slightly pearlescent. It would be more on the runny side than thick, and smells very flowery and perfumed. I thought the smell was rather strong - I'm not really into strong floral scents but this was pleasant enough.
The shower gel lathers up quickly and rinses off easily.
I certainly felt clean and relaxed after using this, but I would be lying if I said my skin felt any smoother or moisturised than normal. It certainly didn't dry my skin out as it's pH balanced but sorry Radox, I just don't feel this shower gel is any more moisturising than the rest of your range.
This is on offer in Sainsbury's at the moment for 87p. The usual price is around £1.75 for the 250ml bottle.
I would recommend this to a friend as a shower gel because it's Radox and therefore you know you can expect quality, nice packaging, and value for money. But as a moisturising product? Not so much.
In my toiletries good bag which I received from the mother in law for Christmas I seemed to have an abundance of Radox products so I am guessing they were on sale somewhere! I really like Radox and very rarely come across a product which I don't really like so most of the products in my bathroom tend to be Radox even my other half is a fan.
Since finishing my beloved Shower Smoothie I dipped my hand into the bag and pulled out a shower gel from the Shower Therapy range. The product in question is known as Shower Therapy Moisturise which is basically full of ingredients to help soften and moisturise the skin whilst being gentle all at the same time.
*~* What is it? *~*
The shower gel/ cream is part of the Shower Therapy range which Radox create. For their Moisturise variety they have blended jojoba oil which helps soft the skin together with chamomile which is known for its calming and relaxing properties.
*~* Packaging *~*
The shower gel comes in a clear nearly oval shaped bottle which has a flip top lid or bottom depending on how you look at it! But at the top of the bottle there is a plastic hook which can be attached to your shower fitting should you wish to use it this way. Because the bottle is clear you can see how much or how little you have left. The colour theme on the front is white and lilac which little images of lilac flowers which I presume to resemble chamomile. They are certainly very calming colours to look at visually. On the back there is all the unusual information you would expect to see such as ingredients and contact information.
*~* Using It *~*
~ Consistency ~
Pouring this white coloured shower gel out onto a sponge is easy as it isn't too thick. But it isn't too thin either, it has a nice gel like consistency which foams up well. However, if you are a bit heavy handed you will probably end up with too much as it can come out the bottle quickly!
~ Aroma ~
It has a lovely delicate, light floral aroma which is very nice. It isn't too strong either in the shower or whether you just smell it from the bottle but it isn't too subtle so the scent certainly lingers around both in the shower and out of the shower which is nice. It is definitely a calming fragrance which is nice and gentle.
~ Application ~
Easy to use as you simply pour it onto a sponge or wash cloth and rub it in a little to get the creamy, white foam.
~ Results ~
I'm very rarely let down by a Radox product and this is certainly no different whatsoever. It has a lovely fragrance which happily stays with you even when you get out the shower and the thickish consistency does mean you don't end up wasting the product. The shower gel certainly produces a lot of bubbles which are soft and silky which is nice but they are easily washed away and disperse quickly but there is certainly no shortage.
Sometimes moisturising products which claim to soft and smooth skin don't really have an affect on my skin at all - it may stay moisturised for an hour before going back to normal. So I have stopped getting my hopes up and even though my skin was left really smooth and felt softer after using this over a period of a week I still had to use a body lotion but I did notice that my skin look a bit healthier and had a nice glow to it. The aroma stays on the skin for quite a while which is nice and it stays quite subtle so it doesn't interfere with perfume or body spray etc.
After the show I really did feel relaxed but also refreshed at the same time which was nice. The aroma as I said above it delicate but it really does calm the mind which after a long day it is nice to unwind. The shower gel is delicate enough and my skin can be sensitive and I didn't have any irritation, it was nothing but gentle and moisturised my skin lightly.

*~* Price & Availability *~*
As with most Radox products they are available from all supermarkets, discount stores and pharmacies so it wouldn't be hard to get hold of a bottle! Expect to pay just under £2.00 for a bottle but I know a lot of the time they are on offer.
*~* Overall *~*
A lovely shower gel which is gentle and delicate. I really like it and I would definitely recommend this to anyone. They certainly wont be disappointed!
One thing that is used daily in my house is the product I will now review for you, with it being used by the bucketful (though we do try to stop the kids from doing so!).
The product I will now review is - "Radox - moisturise shower therapy".
Now as with most of the stuff I buy when doing my weekly shop, this was on offer being sold for 84p a bottle, which in fairness works out to around the same as what they were offering it for before, just set up in a different offer!
The bottle this product comes in is a handy squeezy bottle, that has it's own hanging hook set into the top.
There is all the usual gubbins in reference to the ingredients, scents and properties of the product, with the bottle also being clear so the white cream wash is visible within.
The applicator end is a flip and click designed lid, that even with wet hands is excessively easy to open and close, with there even being a pressure patch inside the bottle, meaning that you only get out what you want, and there is no "dribbling" when hung upside down.
To use I just added a small amount to my shower puff, and when agitated I found it produced plenty of thick bubbles.
The smell is very fresh and very subtle, with the bottle stating this contains chamomile and jojoba oil, though I don't really know what either of these things smell like, there is a definite florally scent, but not in any way overpowering.
After washing my skin felt lovely and refreshed, though with not a great deal of scent left. My skin didn't at anytime feel irritated from this product, and it is worth mentioning too, that my children have sensitive skin and this was perfectly fine for them to use with no irritation either.
The only thing that I didn't feel any different about was the moisture quality of my skin, feeling no worse but in the same respect no better either.
This is a really nice shower cream that is used by the whole family, recommended!

My day starts ridiculously early at 6am with a long hot shower. This is the only bit of peace I'm likely to get each day and so I make the most of it. I have a vast array of shower products to suit any and every mood from mild sensual products to full blown zing so I can start my way with a bang when needed or ease into it gently depending on my mood.
Todays choice was Moisturise shower therapy from Radox. Its thick, creamy and luxuriously soft with a delicate non descript soothing aroma. The bottle states the fragrance to be that of camomile and jojoba which remind me of herbal tea (in the case of the former) and posh conditioner for clothes but thankfully the resultant combination is like neither of these but it is very pleasant.
It lathers up well, rinses off with ease and best of all it leaves me feeling very relaxed with surprisingly smooth skin immediately after showering, unfortunately by the time you're dry there aren't any noticeable moisturising benefits. Its all a bit gimmicky. You still need to moisturise afterwards anyway which negates the whole concept of a shower cream with added moisturiser apart from making the shower cream a bit creamier in the first place.
The 250ml bottle is ingeniously designed with a flip out hook which is ideal for hanging it up in a shower. It also folds away neatly making this ideal for taking to the gym too. The larger bottle does not have this useful feature.
The 250ml bottle retails at between £1 and £2 depending upon the store whilst the 500ml costs £2.50 from branches of Boots.
I do like to treat myself to some body wash now and then mainly because I shower instead of bathing so I like to wash my skin with something hydrating and smelly.
I bought a bottle of white Radox moisture on special offer at Tesco a few months ago for 99p I bought the shower variety which has a hook so it can be hung off the shower this also means to can completely empty the bottle so you get your money's worth.
I found this product very good value at 99p for 250 ml. The product is from the Radox range to it is reputable and a trustworthy company. I often get dry and itchy skin but this product has been fine the bottle states that it is dermatologically tested and pH balance, which is reassuring on my sensitive skin.
I found this product works very well as a moisturising cream. I put a two p coin sized amount on my hands and rubbed it over my body to create lather. The cream foamed up nicely and smelt lovely. After applying the cream over my body, I rinsed it off in the shower. After using this product a few days running I found my skin felt very soft and smooth with no dry skin.
I have also found this product very good after I have shaved my legs as they are often dry with flaky skin but Radox moisturise shower cream has moisturised my skin and prevented they dry skin from occurring.
I would highly recommend this product for people with dry sensitive skin
I am still working my way through my cupboard full of shower gels and am constantly amazed to keep finding yet another one that I haven't yet reviewed!
So when I took the next one out of the cupboard last week and it was Radox Moisturise I immediately thought here's another one to review! OK how sad is that?
This one comes in a cloudy white coloured plastic squeezable container with a hook clipped into the top. The end of the hook comes away from the container and twists through 180 degrees so that it stands proud of the top and you can then hang it up in the shower. It can be used easily whilst it is hanging so it makes life very easy, especially for someone like me who is always in a hurry.
The front of the container has the Radox logo in white lettering on a bright green background together with the words 'shower cream, extra moisturisers to leave skin soft and silky' and 'moisturise' written at right angles. There is also a little circle with the words 'blend of natural minerals and herbs' written around it.
So I took my shower gel into the shower - it seemed like a good idea at the time - and hung it on my shower tap.
To use the shower gel I just have to flip open the plastic lid and squeeze the container where the gel actually comes out there is a clear plastic disc covering the opening with a tiny hole in the centre which means that the shower gel does only come out when you give it a squeeze. In turn this also means that if you do happen to drop the container in the shower whilst the lid is open the shower gel won't ooze out and be wasted.
The gel itself is the same creamy white in colour as the container and the smell is lovely. It isn't one of my favourites but it is still very nice. Sadly I have no idea how to describe the fragrance and there is no indication on the container as to what exactly is in this shower gel.
The shower gel lathers up very well, although that may have something to do with our very soft water here, and the bubbles are thick and soft as ever with Radox.
It is also 'PH balanced and dermatologically tested' and has 'active skin conditioners'. My skin certainly felt soft and as I said the fragrance is certainly very nice and remained in the air for a while after I had finished showering.
Radox products are made by Sara Lee, which is a part of H & BC UK Ltd. If you are wondering it is the same firm that makes the gateaux, which I always do find an odd mix of products for one firm.
As with most of these products the shower gel does carry a warning to avoid getting it in your eyes - if you do wash out immediately with cool, clean water, obvious I know but worth a mention just in case.
Since this was a present I hadn't a clue how much it had cost so I have been to www.boots.com and it is currently £1.62, although both Boots and Tesco often have offers on Radox shower gels - usually buy on get one free.
I must just warn you - I bet I can find a few more varieties in the cupboard which have not yet been reviewed!
Two benefits in one shower cream, cleansing and moisturising!
