Disadvantages: Is a little expensive
At Christmas I received a Radox Shower Smoothie in my stocking and have finally got round to testing it out!
I received the Tropical Tranquillity variety, however these shower smoothies are also available in soul soother, spirit booster, natural balance and energy therapy all offering different fragrances and ingredients. The idea of the smoothie is that natural ingredients have kind of been thrown in together to produce these shower products.
The product is packaged in a clear plastic 200ml tube where you can see the shower smoothie inside. It stands on a clear plastic flip lid that is easy to open to get to the liquid. Currently it is priced at £2.54 from Boots Chemist.
The tropical tranquillity is a coconut shower cream with almonds and myrrh. If I am truly honest I wouldn't normally choose a coconut based bath or shower product, simply because they remind me of cheap shampoo - I know this sounds awful but it really does. Anyway not one to look a gift horse in the mouth I was grateful for my gift so have used it to see how it compares.
The smoothie as it is called, is a fairly thick cream like liquid. It is much thicker than shower gel and feels richer and of a better consistency. When I poured it onto my hand it stayed put, not running out of my hand before having a chance to wash myself - this has happened with other shower products! It is a beige/light brown colour with actual small pieces of what I can assume are the crushed almonds. When you apply the cream to your skin you can feel the small pieces, I think this is to give a slight almost exfoliating effect.
Now onto the smell...this does actually smell really nice and nothing like coconut shower products I have used before. The coconut fragrance is evident but quite subtle and not overpowering, it almost smells good enough to eat.
The cream when I mixed with a little water, lathered really well on my skin, quickly forming bubbles. It also rinsed away relatively easy too, making the whole experience quite enjoyable and luxurious. My skin felt really soft and moisturised after showering, which lasted for quite a while.
I have been quite impressed with this shower smoothie, and will definitely be trying the other varieties to find my favourite!
