Radox Shower Smoothies
Advantages: lovely scent
Disadvantages: doesn't linger as long as would like
I love anything with a coconut scent and so when I spotted the Radox tropical tranquillity shower smoothies in Boots on offer for just a pound I thought I would have to try it. The Radox brand to me is one that I quite like and I have always found that their bath foams are of a really good quality and so I was looking forward to trying this new product.
The shower smoothie comes in a clear plastic tube which stands on its lid. I always like products like this as it means your product is always running towards the lid and so is ready to squeeze out rather than at the top of the tube and you have to wait for ages for it to reach the bottom. On the front of the bottle there is the green Radox logo as well as a picture of some broken coconuts which to me makes the product look very appealing!
The bottle tells us that the tropical tranquillity variety is "A luxurious coconut shower smoothie with crushed almonds and myrrh. Smell me. I'm a beach holiday in a bottle. All thick and creamy and full of natural ingredients. Your skin will thank you!" The bottle also carries a "don't drink me" warning which I would imagine is very much tongue in cheek but is suggesting that the product really does smell goes enough to eat or drink!
When I am in the shower I apply some of this product to a sponge for application to my body. What I notice immediately when squeezing the product on to my sponge is how the cream just has this lovely sweet coconut smell which is great in my opinion. Secondly I notice that within the shower smoothie there are little flecks of brown which I would imagine is the crushed almonds. These are in no way scratchy on the skin though.
The shower smoothie foams up quite well on my skin in the shower and my skin feels soft and moisturised after use. One thing that I would say lets me down with this product is that the scent doesn't really linger on my skin after I have dried myself which is a shame.
If you are unlucky enough to get some of the product into your eyes you should make sure you rinse them well with some clean water as you would with any other product.
As I mentioned earlier I bought this product for a pound and for a 200ml bottle I think that was pretty reasonable. I do enjoy using this creamy shower smoothie and so does my son. I would purchase it again if I saw it at a good price and this takes nothing from the product-I just like to get a bargain! The shower smoothie does feel nice to use and has a lovely scent-it is just a shame the scent doesn't linger in my opinion! For this reason the product loses a star and gets four out of five stars from me.
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: a nice bath/shower product
