I'm an avid gym go-er which means I'm often hobbling around from various injuries, strains or general aches and pains. It's rare that I find the time to take a long hot bath, but nothing feels better than a good soak when you feel as though you've been hit by a truck. Radox is my go-to bath product, something I love to use before going to sticking on some fluffy pyjamas and getting cosy in front of the television.
As many of you will know Radox has a large range of shower gels, muscle soaks and bath gels which have been around for years and haven't decreased in popularity. Radox bath products can be found in most supermarkets, chemists and discount stores including poundland, Boots, Asda and Tesco.
The Radox Stress Relief is a lovely vibrant but deep blue colour which looks inviting. It comes in a transparent plastic bottle which is quite soft allowing you to squeeze the product out. The Radox logo is on the front in big white letters and you can't mistake the trademark, tall, thin bottle.
The lid is a screw top which is probably the only thing I would change about this product, as it can be difficult to open with wet hands and a pain if you drop the lid into the bath.
The product itself is quite thick and goopy so doesn't spill easily and doesn't feel like you need to use lots to get good results. I like to run the hot tap and pour it into the bath near the water flow to get the bubbles going. This bath gel soon turns the water a lovely blue colour and produces lots of bubbles which just makes the bath look incredibly inviting. It does have a nice smell, I can smell the eucalyptus and it has a lovely, soothing effect.
I really enjoyed a hot bath, with lovely blue tinted water and the smell of Rosemary and eucalyptus, it certainly lives up to the name - Relaxing. I didn't find that I needed to use any more of the product whilst in the bath, and found that the small amount I'd used was sufficient for a long, relaxing bath. My skin was quite soft once I came out the bath and the fragrance did linger on my skin a little which was lovely.
This is fantastic for the money, I have seen it for £1.95 for 500ml in some stores, but at the moment, it is £1 in Boots and Asda. It's easily worth double that as it lasts well, feels great, smells nice and does exactly what it says on the bottle. Definitely recommended.
This is a lovely bubble bath to use when having a long hot soak in the bath and especially before going to bed for a good night's sleep. I also find this product very relaxing after a very stressful day at work (which quite honestly is most days!). It has a very nice smell which reminds me of an aromatherapy treatment and lasts throughout having a bath. It also leaves a lovely smell in the bathroom. This seems to be quite a luxury product, but without the price tag. I would also like to mention that my boyfriend, who works in a dusty environment, also likes to use this product as he says it has a lovely, clean, fresh smell which is not overpowering.
You do not need to pour a lot into the bath, just a capful, as it does bubble well and they last throughout the bath which is want I want from a bubble bath. There is nothing worse than the bubbles disappearing around you whilst you are in the bath!
My only criticism would be that it does not soften the skin, but to be fair it is not sold as a body moistureriser.
I have been using this product for a long time and it is definitely my favourite in the Radox range. My overall opinion is that this product is very well priced, smells lovely, and i would highly recommend it to anyone who wants that lovely relaxing feeling at the end of the day before going to bed.
Radox is my go-to bath accessory to make it more pleasant. It's calming aroma makes you just want to fall into the water and read a nice book. The water doesn't heavily discolour and doesn't irritate the skin. A definite for a nice Friday night bath after a hard day at work or with the kids.
Sometimes after a hard day alls I want to do is run a nice hot bath and pour in some of this Radox stress relief and unwind.I have only just started using it recently as I previously used the Radox bath salts but I fancied a change(I got sick of the grainy residue the bath salts left on the bottom of the bath).You do not need to put much of this In to your bath as it does bubble up quite a bit , I usually put a capful under the running water so it bubbles up nicely(Obviously you can add more or less depending on your required bubble amount).When you open the bottle you will instantly get a lovely whiff of this product....the scent is really nice and I find it to be very soothing and relaxing, when you get into the bath you will feel relaxed and after a sok in this Radox it makes your skin feel really soft.There are other variants/Scents but i much prefer this one it is just subtle and not to over powering....You can comfortably sit in a bath of this for half an hour without feeling like you have eaten a bar of soap.I would however say to people with sensitive skin test this product out on your skin before getting in the bath with it in as you may find it irritates your skin due to the many ingredients that are in it.I would definitely recommend you try this product to unwind at the end of a busy day it always works for me....Thumbs up to Radox :)
I live and breath Radox .. It's the ultimate must have bath essential and I have to buy a bottle every single time I go shopping. Radox itself is a great brand and do all different varieties of bath gels. The stress relief herbal bath though is brilliant. It is so relaxing and smells delicious in hot water. Not only does it smell great but the smell is so strong and lasting after you've bathed the wonderful smell sticks to your skin and leaves you feeling so fresh and relaxed. Definately a must try product, especially if you have never given the radox brand a try they do wonderful products. I use the radox stress relief almost all the time and the formulae creates many bubbles in the bath, so if you don't like bubble baths then don't use to much of the radox. It smells almost earthy and it's a beautiful smell which contributes to the relaxation of your bath. It reminds me of the smell of grass and the out doors, not really the most beautiful of smells comapared to smells like jasmine and vanilla but is so relaxing and soothing for you to bathe in. A bottle costs about £2 a bottle depending on where you shop for it and the colour of the gel is a very bright blue colour which fades almost completely when it is added into your bath water, it's nothing spectacular but it's great for aching muscles and joint pain and for a great relaxing bath.
This is one of the basic bubble baths I buy from time to time as they are not expensive and are often on special offer.
Radox have a number of different bubble bath products but this one is designed to relax you and soothe aching muscles.
It smells great, I love eucalyptus and rosemary, neither are sweet and feminine scents but they do remind me of gardens and Australia sort of earthy herby scents.
This gives lots of bubbles and does not claim to be a natural product so be aware that bubble making ingredients can be skin irritants. they do say that there are natural ingredients in there for relaxing the mind and body.
This is a bright blue colour but in the bath this fades and the water is not remarkably blue and you don't need to use a lot to get a nice scent filled bath with a decent amount of bubbles. We are lucky as we have quite soft water but even in hard water you will not need a lot.
This costs about £2 for a bottle that I think is about 300 ml so it is not expensive compared to a lot of bubble baths.
This is no luxury product but it is a nice fresh, natural smelling bubble bath that I enjoy from time to time. It is not moisturising at all so if you have dry skin you will need a moisturiser after using this. I tend to use a lavender scented one before bedtime as that also helps relax me as well as this does.
This is a good family bubble bath suitable for all and great for that before bedtime bath as it does help to sooth the muscles and relax the mind ready for sleep.
WHAT IS IT?
This is bubble bath that is made by Radox. It has got ingredients in it that will relax you if you have got a problem with stress.
DOES IT WORK?
I think this is very nice bubble bath but I do not think it has enough power to make me feel like I am not suffering from stress. It smells very nice and the smell makes me feel relaxed when I am having a bath in it and I like that the smell is not usual to other bubble baths also.
WHAT I THINK
I like this bubble bath very much even though I think it is not very good at making me feel like I have less stress. I add the bubble bath to hot water and I think it is that mixture of the pleasing herbal smell and the hot water also that makes me feel relaxed.
The smell is like rosemary but there are other herb smells inside the bubble bath and it is not very feminine and I know that because my husband likes to use it also and he will not use bath produce that smell like they are special for women.
I feel very clean when I have had a bath in this bubble bath but I have to use quite a lot of it to get as many bubbles as I like to have in my bath. When there are alot of bubbles I use them to wash my body with and they are soft and very cleansing. I can only have about 5 baths out of one bottle because of how much I use in my bath but it would last you for a longer time if you did not use so much and that is obvious.
The normal price for this bubble bath is £2 and I think that is value but it is usually on special price promotion in one of the supermarkets or in Boots and I do not think I have paid more than £1 for it very often. I am happy with that price because even though I use alot of the bubble bath when I use it in the bath it still feels like value because it is a very nice product and cheap also.
4 Dooyoo Hearts.
I absolutely love having a bubble bath, it's the only way to really unwind for me. I have used lots of different brands over the years but always return to Radox which I think is just the best of the lot.
The stress relief one is a bright blue bottle which looks really nice. Well the bottle is actually see through but the bath foam itself is bright blue. The great thing about this product is you only need a very small amount and it soon bubbles up! I put in just a few drops and then swish it around the bath for about a minute. This is always enough to create loads of bubbles!
When I get in a Radox bath I can't help but go 'ahhhh' as I relax into it. The bubbles are great and make the bath so much more relaxing. The scent of the Radox is a fresh, herbal type smell. Nothing specific and nothing that is too sickly sweet or anything so it's ideal for relaxing into.
The bubbles last! They have proper staying power! None of this, two minutes into the bath and they have all popped malarkey, but proper bubbles for the duration of a full bath! I find if I have a bath with any other product it just doesn't last anywhere near as long.
I like lots of other Radox bath products too so highly recommend them above all other brands. This is definitely a winner in my house for me!
One thing that I get through an awful lot of in my home is bath foams and the likes. I bath daily because I have mobility issues standing around in the shower and simply find it easier to have a bath (though not getting out of it of course lol) and add to that my boyfriend is a builder and often baths round at mine so its something that I find myself buying in often and this one I bought the other day in Boots as it was on offer for a pound a bottle.
The bottle of this is rather nice and sort of oblong in shape and made of see-through plastic and it has an aqua green twist on/off lid/cap to the top of it and on the front of it we are told that it is Radox Stress Relief Bath Soak 'A calming blend, with rosemary & eucalyptus' and that it is a 'Feel good fragrance' and then there is a picture shown of green leaves then on the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, the ingredients within it are listed, the size is stated which in my case is a 500ml bottle and contact details for the manufacturer are clearly stated. This is a very unisex looking bottle and I do like being able to see the bath soak through the bottle so I know when it needs replacing!
The Bath Soak Itself:
Well this bath soak is a transparent aqua green in colour and it has a really natural aroma to it that reminds of a sea fresh aroma. It has a herbal aroma though and you can detect the eucalyptus within this which is very refreshing and a clean fragrance this is on the whole.
I add a blob of this to my running water which is easy to do so as the gel like bath soak is quite runny and then when I return after running my bath to get in it I am greeted with a fair amount of white, thick bubbles and a lovely nasal passage opening scented bathroom.
This doesn't make my water all that soft really, not that, that bothers me as it certainly isn't skin drying and I lie back and relax and take in the aroma and the feel of my lovely warm bath!
Yes I find this a very relaxing bath soak. I am a worry wart, I worry about anything and everything and I lie back and breath nice and deep and do feel better for taking a dip in this as the scent is just so fresh and clean and the eucalyptus in this really does soothe and make me feel that I can breathe easier and I find that if I have an onset of a headache that this helps with that considerably and because the scent is what it is, in my opinion this is as unisex in its fragrance as the packaging suggests and my boyfriend really enjoys using this one too!
After I'm dried off the scent of this lingers on my skin for rather a while and all in all I think this is a really nice sort of everyday treat and I will be buying this again I'm sure!
Available from all good supermarkets and chemists etc and if not on offer (which it is very often in lots of places) expect to pay closer to the £2.00 mark a bottle.

***Why do I use it? What do you get? How much?***
I have been using Radox bath products since my childhood without any problems and now as an adult don't use any other bath product. Even my son, who was an avid lover of his Johnsons Baby Bedtime bath soak has snubbed his old love and now wants to use mummies aqua blue bath stuff.
You get 500mL of the rosemary and eucalyptus bath soak in a tall, slender plastic bottle (which is recycleable - the cap is not) with a screw on cap. I actually like the packaging that you get with this product as it's practical and pretty.
I refuse to pay more than a £1 for a bottle of Radox as it can always be found at that price if you shop around even though the RRP is £2.00.
***How do I use it? and What do I think of it?***
I tend to pour about a dessertspoon amount under running tap water and find that it's sufficient for a fragrant bath with not too many bubbles as I hate it when you get too many bubble. For my son's bath I tend to use about a teaspoon and that is more than enough and it mean's that the bath water will not irritate his eyes. The fragrance from this bath soak is absolutely delightful and it really does help you to relax after a hard day at work or when you've been running around like a mad-man after your little one(s). As previously mentioned this product contains eucalyptus oil which is great if you have sinus issues like me as it helps ease the congestion and means that I get some pain relief without the use of pills.
As for my skin and that of my son's, we've never had issues with sensitivity due to this product and it has never left my skin dryer than usual. I always apply a moisturiser to my and my son's skin after bathing as regardless of which bath soak is used it will always strip some of your natural oils as it removes the build-up dead skin etc. The scent is a lovely one to go to bed with and I have found that both I and my son get 'off to the land of nod' much quicker on evenings when this product is used.
***Would I recommend this bath soak?**
Definitely as it's very cheap with a bottle lasting me on average ~6 months. I think it's a great product for a busy family and it's one that I'll happily use for the foreseeable future provided Radox don't discontinue it that is.
This is the second Radox bath product I've bought recently and I purchased this one after using the Muscle Therapy Bath Soak and enjoying my experiences with the product. I was also attracted to this product because it was half price at 95p (usually £1.90) at my local supermarket.
I have an anxiety disorder so products that use aromatherapy for relaxation are perfect for calming me down and settling nerves at the beginning or end of the day. This product promises to promote stress relief by lulling your raging senses with a blend of rosemary and eucalyptus. Radox call this a "feel good fragrance" and claim the scent will leave you "calm and revitalised". Radox are proud to call themselves "experts in blending" - meaning the herbs and oils they choose and the quanities they mix them is something they have perfected.
The Bath Soak comes in a 500ml sized bottle. This is recyclable and the top is quite small so not much packaging is wasted. The liquid is bright turquoise and there is a label on the front of the bottle showing sprigs of rosemary and eucalyptus leaves being thrown into swirling water. The packaging design is very impressive and this gives me the impression that this brand is thoughtful and trustable.
The label on the back of the bottle provides a list of ingredients as well as contact information for the Unilever brand who manufacture this. There is also a little piece written about the Bath Soak which states that Radox like to use "natural ingredients".
To use this product you should pour it into your bath as you fill it up with hot water. I find I need to use less of this for an effect compared to the Radox Muscle Therapy bath soak. It creates a slightly foamy surface and tints the water a green-blue shade but not radically. If you are after a foaming bubble bath I would say this isn't the product to go for. The strengths in this product are in the aroma rather than the bubble bath effect.
The fragrance of the bath soak is wonderful. It's fresh, clean, herbal and natural. It makes me feel like I'm outdoors as there is such a keen smell of vegetation. Eucalyptus is quite often used in cold medicines now to clear your airways and this has a similar effect. It makes you feel like you are healthy and that you can breathe deeply. It's not as strong though as something like Olbas Bath Soak. The rosemary ingredient cuts through that eucalyptus and makes you feel relaxed and free. It definitely does what it claims to do and helps to relieve stress, tension and nervousness.
I really enjoy baths using this bath soak and love to just lie in the water with the stream rising around me and just to breathe the fragrances in as they float around me. The bath soak does create a silky bubble top on the bath water surface and this also feels quite nice to splash around in. I haven't noticed any skin softening qualities but my skin smells great afterwards and leaves me feeling particularly fresh as I'm getting dried.
I would definitely recommend this. I've been using a lot of cheaper bath products lately but using this Radox product has shown me that paying just a little bit more guarantees that you get a great experience. This is great for a relaxing bath at any time of the day.
I am a huge shower fan, I only use the bath to relax and pamper myself. The thought of sitting there in your own dirt really doesn't appeal to me. I usually treat myself to a long soak in the bath once the little terror is in bed on a Friday or Saturday night, don't ask me why, I think I'm substituting a night on the town for a night in the bath! I usually try a lot of different bath product, Radox stress relief was chosen this time as my daughter is at the terrible two's stage and really does stress me out at times.
----- Packaging -----
The 500ml bath soak comes in a rectangular see through bottle. It has the product name and a picture of Rosemary (I think) on the front of the bottle, telling us to calm down and relax with this rosemary and eucalyptus bath soak. The bath of the bottle tells us the ingredients, what's gone into it, and a little paragraph about using this bath soak to forget everything and treat yourself. The lid is a simple screw top in a green colour.
----- The soak -----
As the bottle is see though, we can already see the colour of the product, it's a bright green colour. To use it, simply pour a little under warm running water as your bath is filling up. I don't use a lot, I tip it up then back again in an instant.
As the bath is filling up the aroma is instantly relaxing. The scent is very herbal and you can definitely pick out the rosemary smell. It isn't a feminine scent so this bath soak is great for men or women alike. The scent fills the bathroom for the duration of the bath (which can sometimes be a very long time!) and a while after.
As I said before, I literally tip the bath soak up and back again so only a little of the product is used and the amount of bubbles created is fantastic. The bubbles are thick and don't disappear very quickly at all, there are always some left at the end of my bath.
Radox say that rosemary can help you feel calmer and more relaxed and eucalyptus is great for clearing your head, I'm not really sure to what extent this is, but any bubble bath soak makes me feeling calmer with a clear head. I don't feel like this makes me feel even more relaxed than using other bath soaks.
----- Price -----
I picked this Radox bath soak up for £1 from Asda a couple of months ago. It's available from most toiletry stockists such as supermarkets, Boots and Superdrug. It costs between £1-£2.
----- Overall -----
This bath soak is fantastic value for money, although it doesn't relax or de-stress me more than other brands it still does what it says it will do, just not better than others. The bubbles last an absolute age, and the smell is pleasant. I'd definitely recommend it!
We almost always have Radox bubble bath in our house. We have had it since I was much younger and we always seem to go back to it because you know you are getting great quality. There are plenty of different varieties to pick from so I find that we never get bored of having the same product.
The one that we currently have is Radox Herbal Bath Stress Relief. I cant remember exactly what we paid, each bottle usually retails at around £2 but I always wait for an offer so it was probably something like half price or buy one get one free.
The bottle is quite stylish, it is different to the design above and is a bit more curvy, the bottle gives me information about the product and also has the Radox logo on it.
Opening the product is really easy, there is just a simple screw off lid and no seals or anything to break. The bubble bath contains rosemary and eucalyptus and you can certainly smell the rosemary when you open up the bottle.
The product is very thick and I find you only need a tiny bit poured under warm running water to provide lots of white fluffy bubbles. Thats one of the things I like about Radox, you only need to use a tiny bit so a bottle will last for ages.
The scent of the bath is very inviting, you can certainly smell the aromas of rosemary and eucalyptus and I couldnt wait to get in. The water remains clear rather than turning blue.
I have very sensitive skin and so far I have been fine with all Radox products (touch wood)!
So does it relieve you of stress? Well I have been extremely stressed out over the past few weeks and haven't had the calmest morning, when I got in the bath I found that I was much calmer and still feel much more calm and serene now. I find a bath always helps to chill me out a bit but I do feel much happier now!
I would recommend this bubble bath, it smells nice, it is a great quality product and can be bought for a bargain price when an offer is on. It is a unisex bubble bath so it is great for both sexes.
Radox Stress Relief Herbal Bath
Who doesn't like a lovely hot bubble bath with a cold glass of wine and a great book, especially when the nights are getting that bit darker and colder? I love having a bath, I think it is a great indulgence that allows me to relax and get a bit of important me time.
I have tried and own quite a few different Radox products and they do make a nice bath without breaking the bank. However, they aren't as nice as some of the more organic and natural bath products that are available. I paid only £1 for my 500ml bottle and it does last for quite a few baths even when using it generously.
You probably don't need to use as much of this as I tend to do, but I like to add a good dollop of this and watch the water take on a lovely blue/green hue. The Radox bath also lathers up really well creating a whole tub of lovely bubbles.
This does also have a lovely smell, it contains rosemary and eucalyptus which creates a great fragrance. However, after the initial wafts of scents the smell doesn't linger as long as I would like it and once I am out of the bath the fragrance doesn't stay on your skin.
After the bath my skin feels clean but not much else. It doesn't feel dried out but neither does it feel moisturised like some of the other more expensive bath products can do. Overall, I think this is a pretty average bath product and doesn't give you that special touch that makes a bath really feel like a pampering session.
There are some concerns about using these products because of parabens and added synthetic ingredients, especially when used with hot water as they can strip the skin of essential oils. However, I think this is best left up to individual judgement and I am a firm believer in everything is fine in moderation.
I really like this bath product it isn't as luxurious as some of the more expensive bath bombs and bars around, but it does make a great bath for the nights when you just want to get into the tub with minimal effort and expense. This Radox stress relief herbal bath gets a pretty average three out of five stars from me.
I suffer from lots of stress this is mainly due to I cause most of it myself by pannicing about things that are very trivial. I also have the stress of the children on constant mad mode and demanding behaviour, when you throw the problems of finance on top I would say that I need a well deserved relax. I am no different from most of you I would assume this is why I would recommend this to you all.
My bottle is slightly different to the one in the picture so I am not sure if I have an old one or new one but I did buy this last christmas. I like to have a bath but only get to have a soak once a week when the better half isn't working and have to settle for quick showers inbetween. I must say that I don't have a bath to wash only to relax due to you are washing in your own dirt in a bath.
My bottle is 500ml and cost a mere £1. At this price it is not to be snubbed at due to only using it once a week to wind down this bottle is still going but I would say only for approximatley 2 more months so I have had almost a years worth out of it.
This is a herbal bath soak, you simply pour the gel under a running tap into your bath and watch the bubbles form and smell the relaxing aroma fill your bathroom.
The aroma is rosemary and eucalyptus which the smell itself is relaxing as you are sitting next to your bath this is enabling you to be more relaxed when you enter the bath and gives you the full experience of a heavy weight being lifted off your shoulders. My experiance is that my neck tension started to loosen, my legs stopped hurting and experianced a pleasant tingling feeling of my muscles loosening. This was lovely especially because it helped me relax to ensure I had a good nights sleep which is definatley what I needed after getting out of this bath.
You do not need to add alot of this to your running water to create enough bubbles or aroma to get an effect. I would recommend 3 drops to the running water is plenty but shut the door of the bathroom to create the steam and best effect from the fragrance.
As for your skin, I suffer from sensitive skin and have had no problems with this but I would recommend if your skin is more sensitve to test it before putting it in your bath just incase this should not harm you due to the herbal extracts but we all have to have side effects from something. This has left my skin soft and smelling lovely and due to going to bed after using this the aroma still enfuses me while I am sleeping giving added extra relaxation.
I have found this to be a very useful and worthwhile product that is kept well out of reach of children so that they do not spill it all over the bathroom floor, It is definatley a relaxing product that relives stress even if it is only until the children get up the next morning I am having one good nights sleep. The price is amazing at £1 when it is on a special deal but is not much more when normally priced which is between £1.59 and £2. This is worth a try for the hard working mothers to have a break and pampering session and for the hard working men who have to come in and take over with the children so that the moms can have that break. Or in some instances vice versa. This is an ideal christmas smelly presant that I would buy for friends and family, I have also asked my better half to ensure that this is replaced by someone at christmas for example the children because I couldn't ask for anything better.
