      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I would not recommend this for people to relax...

      *****Introduction*****

      After a long day at work yesterday I nipped into Morrison's to get a few essentials, such as bread milk and eggs to keep us all going until our weekly shop on Tuesday evening.

      After grabbing a few items I was on my way to the check outs via the shampoo and bath bubble alleys and I noticed this Radox bath soak on offer at two for 4.00, as I was heading home foe a nice soak in the bath I also picked these up to help assist in my night of relaxation.

      *****The Product*****

      This Radox solutions deep sleep bath essence, is designed to give you a nice relaxing bath so good in fact you should actually get a good night sleep too.

      Upon opening the bottle I was hit by a mild lavender scent, which disappeared almost instantly as the essence hit the water, so this was a down side as it didn't smell at all by the time I actually got into the bath.

      The Radox bubbles were really thin in consistency and did not give a huge amount of bubbles, but this was fine as I am not overly keen on a mass of bubbles in the bath but for relaxation purposes I would have thought that this should have been very bubbly.

      As I got these on offer I was not overly disappointed but I am sure if I have paid the full price of nearly four pounds, I would not have been impressed.

      *****My views*****

      As far as the relaxation is concerned this was no different to any other bath foam I have bought at a much cheaper price, it was lacking in both smell and bubbles so I would not recommend this unless you pick it up at a much cheaper price.

      I found I was putting so much foam in the bath to make at suitable amount of bubbles so this will only last a little while.

      As far as the sleep well benifits, will these were non exsistant and i didn't sleep all that well either.

      Overall this is very expensive and I would not buy it again, unless I got it much cheaper than I did this time.

        Absolutely useless!

        Today Hubby and I have worked on the local lifeboat stall all day. We are members of the Llandudno Lifeboat Guild and we have a stall on the seafront every Sunday. This week the people who usually set the whole thing up and put it all away were on holiday so we stepped in to help. By the time we got home we were whacked!

        I decided that a good soak in the bath would help and I looked in the cupboard to see which of my bubble baths I fancied.

        The one that caught my eye was the Radox Solutions Deep Sleep.

        It is obviously one of the posh Radox Bubble Baths as it is in a square clear glass bottle rather than the usual plastic one! It is the same size as the plastic one and has a silver coloured screw top and contains 250ml of bubble bath.

        On the front of the bottle there is a picture of a crescent moon against a deep blue sky and the traditional green Radox logo. The wording tells me that the contents are 'foaming bath essence with lavender'.

        The liquid inside separates after standing so is greeny blue at the bottom of the bottle and white at the top. When shaken the two mix together to make a light blue froth.

        I opened the top and sniffed expecting to smell lavender but I was very disappointed as there was hardly any fragrance at all!

        Never mind - I thought that the fragrance would be released in the bubbles when I poured the 'foaming bath essence' into the bath - wrong again!

        I poured almost half the bottle into the bath and still there was no appreciable fragrance. There were very few bubbles and they started to disappear as soon as they formed. Bearing in mind that we live in a very soft water area I ought to have been up to my neck in bubbles!

        I got into the bath and lay back to enjoy my soak. Sadly the enjoyment of the soak was just the fact that the water was hot and I was relaxing. The allegedly 'foaming' bath essence added nothing to the experience at all.

        I have taken a look online and the current cost of this is about £4 so it is a bit more expensive than the standard Radox items but it is supposed to be something a little bit special.

        In conclusion I would certainly not recommend this product at all, which is very unusual for me where Radox is concerned, I usually love them all but not this one!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I?ve been searching recently for a little inner calm. Life has been rather hectic and sleep has been somewhat lacking. Now I?m not going to try and claim I?ve found inner peace for a few quid on the shelves of Boots, But what I have found certainly has helped. I regularly buy Radox products simply because that was the bubble bath of choice when I was growing up and my dad still uses it at home. It?s more a habit than anything. I had seen the Radox Solutions range, but dismissed them because they are quite a lot more expensive than the traditional range and as I have no problem with ?normal? Radox, I was of the opinion ?if it aint broke don?t try to fix it.? I only bought the Solutions product because it was on offer at Boots for £2.96 instead of the normal price of £4.29 for 150 ml. Even though that isn?t a great saving, I?m a sucker for the word ?Save? on price labels. Boots love me for it! Radox ?Solutions? has been around for a few years now, but seems content to hover in the background behind its more popular brother. It is a range of four bubble baths that are meant to provide ?solutions? to life?s little problems (well, the mind and the body ones anyway, they don?t do ones that pay the rent or do the washing up, unfortunately.) It is cashing in on the general trend recently for aromatherapy and aromachology products (in which the positive effects of certain fragrances on the mood are used for benefits to health and well being). They contain natural ingredients and essential oils. The range includes ?Skin Sanctuary? (protects skin from the harsh elements) with Aloe Vera, ?Precious Time?(soothes, calms and balances) with Patchouli and Ylang Ylang, ?Deep Calm?(makes you deeply calm, I assume) with Passionflower and the product I tried ?Deep Sleep?( have a guess what this ones for) with Lavender. Radox products are endorsed by the British Spas Federation for their theraputic benefits and the Sleep Council.
          Deep Sleep is like ?Radox Posh.? It is the upmarket equivalent to their best selling ?Sleep Easy? product. It comes in a clear glass bottle and is a bi-phasic bath foam (that?s two layers of bubble bath to you and I.) The bottle is square shaped and the layers are two shades of purple blue. The bottom half is a really deep blue like the night sky (it has a picture of the moon on the label that is situated right in the middle of the sky bit.) The top half looks sort of like fluffy clouds. It is pale blue and frothy. It looks especially nice if you peel all the labels off the bottle leaving just the plain glass ? very posh sat on the side of the bath. The only problem I could see with a glass bottle would be if it slipped into the bath it could be messy because its not going to bounce like a plastic bottle so the moral of the story is be careful! The idea is to shake the bottle to mix the two layers before pouring the product under running water (I don?t know why its in layers, advertising gimmick I assume!) Shaken up it all goes the fluffy pale blue colour and looks far less impressive than in its original ?bi-phasic? state. The smell in the bottle is not very nice. Its strong and quite medicinal, it doesn?t really smell of lavender. I was disappointed, but I thought I?d give it a go anyway. When I poured it into the water it was surprisingly thin and watery. It should come with a warming of some sort about this, because I just kept pouring it in, assuming (very foolishly) that it was going to take quite a lot to get bubbles. This was a mistake? Five minutes later and my bathroom resembled the inside of a snowdrift. There were bubbles everywhere. This stuff is certainly a foam bath. The bubbles were really luxurious too, not like cheap bubble bath that foams loads but is actually just washing up liquid. The bubbles smelled fantastic too. Added to the water something lovely happened to it. It still didn?t smell li
          ke lavender but it was very nice all the same. I had run the bath just before bedtime but I didn?t hold out much hope that a bubble bath was going to put me to sleep. It claims that the lavender has calming effects so you can look forward to a good nights sleep. But a bottle of vodka has calming effects too, and that hasn?t been helping me sleep recently so could Bubble Bath succeed where Alcohol had failed? I doubted it?but I was pleasantly surprised. I had a very relaxing bath and then went straight to bed (leaving the disaster of cleaning the bubble drift left in my bath tub until the following morning ? I couldn?t think of anything more likely to make me feel un calm than cleaning out the bath.) I found myself drifting off to sleep really easily and I slept very well. As I said, I?m not going to claim that bubble bath has solved the problems of my life and cured my insomnia. It could have been that I was just ready for a good sleep, but I think that the bubble bath might well have helped. It was obviously the undercover agent lavender that was hidden in there undetected that sneaked up and knocked me out when I was least expecting it! (It also left my skin feeling really soft and the smell lingered on my skin as well, but this was not my reason for using it so it was just an added bonus ? there are better bath products for skin softening than this.) There isn?t a great deal of difference between this product and normal Radox except for the price, but once in a while it makes a nice change if you fancy a bit of a treat, or it would make a good gift for a bubble bath fan. Definitely worth giving it a try?and Radox, if you fancy creating a ?Solution? bath that will do my housework, let me know. I?ll be the first in the queue for that one!

            This is probably one of my favourite products from the radox range, of which I'm a huge fan. In fact I've made a nice little display in my bathroom of the different coloured bottles - certainly brightens the place up seeing as I have boring white walls which I'm not allowed to paint. This particular bottle is pink in colour, and is designed to be a moisture soak. If like me, you like to take your time in the bath, then a bubble bath which has an added moisturiser like this one does is obviously a bonus as it will prevent your skin from drying out too much. Particularly useful too in this period of cold weather we're having where my skin seems to dry out quicker. It also creates great bubbles without needing to use too much! If you're feeling stressed then this is a great bubble bath to use, because as it says on the bottle, it will unknot aching muscles - which is true, after spending the day on a computer working on an essay it really does help to ease the tension in your neck etc by having a bath with radox. All the products in the radox range are good for this but I prefer this one's smell, which seems slightly flowery, and contains thyme. I would say that whilst radox is generally a unisex bath range, the moisture soak one is probably aimed at women - the smell and the colour! Guys might prefer to try radox original(the dark blue one) or the dark purple one (can't remember that one's name). If you don't buy radox when its on special offer (which is quite often) then it can be a couple of pounds for a bottle but if you go into boots or superdrug, you can usually find it on offer, either at 99p a bottle, two for one, or a similar deal, so stock up then! Finally, if you've got sensitive skin, then I have found that unlike some other bath products, radox has never irritated mine, which is quite sensitive.

              This is one of the musts for if you are either stressed out, tired or upset. It ralaxes all of your mussels and releases tension. They come in a range of different smells. The packaging also looks really lush and is easily recognisable. All that you have to do is pour about a lid ful of the bubble bath into running water (prefably hot) and whisk it all together with your hands. After that all you have to do is get into your bath and relax. Bath time could nether be so relaxing. I would also recomend this for a Christmas present for a mum or dad as it can help get them relaxed so they won't have a reason to be cross with you ever again. This product is also vairly good in the fact sensitive skin users are okay using it as far as I have seen as my five year old sister has used it many a time although it is best not to give to little kids as for obvious reasons. I would also recomend the company of Radox as their goods are very good
