Radox Shower Smoothies
Advantages: Smells lovely, not expensive, nice lather
Disadvantages: None for me
I recently earned £20 in Boots vouchers from www.itsyourview.co.uk so I headed to the store to stock up on a few necessities - plasters, toothpaste etc, but I also decided that I would treat myself.
I have read so many varying reviews about the new Radox Shower Smoothies that I wanted to try one for myself.
There were three different varieties on offer which were as follows:
Energy Therapy containing ginseng, guarana and lemongrass
Natural Balance containing yoghurt, honey and hyssop flowers
Soul Soother containing chamomile, blackcurrant and cranberry seeds
I had a sniff of each one and I chose the Soul Soother one as I liked the pink colour and it definitely smelled the nicest of the three - to me anyway!
It costs me the princely sum of £2.44, although having earned my vouchers it was effectively free so that made it even better to me!
The shower gel comes in a clear plastic tube so the empty container can be recycled. It stands upright with the flip top opening being at the base. This is always the sort of style I like because it means that all the contents run down towards the end where they are going to come out of the container. Otherwise I end up trying to balance things upside down when I am coming to the end of the contents so that I can get the last bit out!
I used to insist on shower gels with handles on the containers so that I could hang them up in the shower, but now I have a shower with a little shelf so it opens up a whole new range of shower gels to me! LOL!
The tube has the Radox logo in green on the front and the words 'Shower Smoothies Soul Soother'. There is also some information as to what the Smoothie contains - 'An indulgent creamy chamomile shower smoothie with blackcurrant and real cranberry seeds. Smell me. I'm thick and creamy and full of luxurious ingredients your skin will thank you for.' It also advises 'Please do no drink'.
Looking through the transparent tube I could see a thick creamy looking pink liquid with red bits in it which I took to be the cranberry seeds.
I took the tube into the shower with me and flipped open the lid. I squeezed a generous amount onto my hand and noticed that it really was a smooth cream rather than a shower gel.
The first thing that struck me was the smell. I know that the information on the tube said that it contains blackcurrant but the smell reminded me more of blackberries although I suppose the two fruits do smell similar. The smell as I showered was lovely and reminded me of blackberry picking in the autumn.
The creamy smoothie lathered up well making a thick lather rather than a lot of bubbles if you see what I mean. It felt very luxurious on my skin and I felt very pampered.
After I had finished showering the smell disappeared both from the air and from my skin quite quickly although my skin did feel soft and cared for.
On balance I think I will have to join the 'yes' camp - I am really impressed with the product and will definitely be trying the Energy Therapy one but I don't think I'll bother with the Natural Balance one as I am not keen on honey. Of course I will be buying this one again too!
