Radox Sleep Easy Herbal Bath
Advantages: LOVELY SCENT, BUBBLES, GOOD PRICE
Radox is a beauty company under the Sara Lee brand. They produce bubble baths, shower gels, handwashes and deodorant products.
Sleep Easy is one of the many bubble baths produced by Radox. It is part of the Bath Therapy range where there are 9 bubble baths to choose from.
This particular bubble bath is made up of jasmine and chamomile. The Sleep Easy bubble baths are not made to put you to sleep (they don't contain sleeping tablets) but are made to help you relax and prepare for sleep.
The chamomile is there to help you unwind and relax. The jasmine is there to provide a calming smell to help you drift off to sleep.
Radox say that a few drops of jasmine oil, some natural chamomile, a perfect pH balance and 100 years of Radox know-how have been used to form this bubble bath. It has also been approved by skin experts.
The Radox bubble baths all come in tall plastic bottles which are rectangular but with a curved head and base. The bottle is see through and has Radox raised along the sides. There is a blue screw off cap.
There is a transparent label on the front of the bottle with the Radox logo and product name. There is also a pretty flower image.
The back of the bottles has another transparent label with some information about the bubble bath and the ingredients.
The bottle can be recycled once empty though the cap cannot. Once opened, you are expected to use the bottle within 12months.
*The Bubble Bath*
Looking inside the bottle, you can see a very dark and almost midnight blue liquid. It has a runny consistency but still looks thick if that makes sense. You can see little white and clear bubbles floating around the bottle.
Using this is extremely straight forward. Once you start running your hot water, pour a small amount under your tap. Add more if you wish more bubbles.

*Availability and Price*
Radox Sleep Easy can be found along the bubble bath aisle in supermarkets and chemists. Wilkinsons also stock this. The normal retail price is around £1.60 for a 500ml bottle though if you look around you will normally find it on offer at £1 which is a bargain!
Yes we have been having somewhat of a heatwave this week but I was stuck in the house for most of it with a stinking cold and no voice. An old back injury was also playing up and I was stressed and exhausted.
Normally I buy Radox for my auntie and for my Mum but when I spotted the range on offer in Wilkos a few weeks ago, I picked myself up the Sleep Easy one. The other day, I remembered it being in the overfilled toiletrie cupboard and pleaded with hubby to run me a nice bath. Usually a bath for me entails a semi cold 5min in and out job in the mornings but I wanted to relax.
Now I will start by saying, really don't go overboard with pouring this stuff into your bath! It is rather rich and concentrated as we discovered when I went in to the bathroom and seen a mountain of bubbles going up my walls. It was then I noticed that hubby being the numpty that he is, had used 1/4 of my bottle which is 125ml of bubble bath! We did have a little foam flicking contest though so that was worth it!
The next time I used this, I ran my own bath as hubby and the wee one went out for the day. I started running my hot water and opened this gorgeous looking bottle. You certainly wouldn't be ashamed to have this sitting in your bathroom. Out wafted a gorgeous sweet aroma. It was quite strong and I feel the jasmine was coming through and the chamomile was calming it down so it wasn't too floral. It was just right.
I poured 2 capfuls (the caps are small) under my water and it instantly started to produce some gorgeous bubbles. The bubble bath was quite runny but almost like a gel and was an intense blue. Once I had my nice hot bubble bath ready, I jumped in and relaxing with a magazine.
I am not used to such a hot bath but this felt extremely relaxing and the bubbles were a plenty without smothering me in them. They were delicately scented and the water felt soft and luxurious. Once I had relaxed for around 30mins I started to feel prune like and had a wash and jumped out. The water ran away nicely without leaving any residue on the bath.
My skin felt smooth and clean and the bubble bath left a sort of sweet but floral scent on my skin which lasted for a good few hours. With the house still to myself, I lay down on the sofa with my nice clean pjs on an nodded off.
I do feel the jasmine and chamomile did help me relax and nod off. I now intend to have my daily baths in the morning with my beloved Soap and Glory shower wash and reserve this beautiful bubble bath for perhaps a Saturday evening when I can simply relax. I feel it helps to let my mind go blank for a wee while which is a godsend sometimes.
At £1 on offer this is a bargain as it does go along way. It also makes the perfect gift. I am on a budget and usually buy a bottle of Radox and some sweets for my auntie for Christmas as I know she loves this. My Mum reguarly likes to relax in a bath so when I spot this on offer, I treat her to a bottle and she is always thankful.
I highly recommend this bubble bath :)
