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.
When I was growing up, Radox bubble bath was considered to be a luxurious brand due to its rich and creamy lather in addition to its beautiful scent and as a result, it was my favoured bathing product at that time. However, nowadays there are a huge variety of brands from which to choose and up until the Spring of last year I was mainly purchasing supermarkets' own products. It was whilst shopping on the Boots website a few months ago that I noticed that the entire Radox bubble bath range was discounted at just £1, so I made the decision to make a number of different purchases with this review discussing Stress Relief.
The name seemed well suited to my needs, particularly as these days I am frequently feeling stressed. The appearance of the product differs slightly from the image displayed above due to a slight moderation in the 500 ml bottle shape. The sturdy plastic bottle is fairly appealing to the eye with its calming and colourful image of rosemary and eucalyptus, which are two of the main ingredients. The bath soak is marketed as a "feel good fragrance", which is what I desire from my bathing products, as in addition to fluffy white bubbles, I require a fairly strong scent to envelop my senses whilst I lie back and chill out in the hot water.
I would previously have considered the turquoise coloured contents to be very appealing, but I cannot admit to being keen these days, particularly as the majority of supermarket value bathing products tend to be blue and as a consequence, I no longer associate the colour with quality. The lid is easily unscrewed and as I place the bottle underneath my nose I am able to witness the considerably intense and very favourable aroma, which is mainly rosemary with a delicate hint of eucalyptus. To ensure I obtain maximum results, I always add my bathing products to running water, but due to the large bottle opening, I always find it a little difficult to dispense the correct amount, particularly as the bath soak is fairly thick. As a result, I frequently end up using far more than necessary as opposed to the small amount that is needed.
The product doesn't sink to the base of the bath, which is often the case with some of the cheaper brands and instead it quickly swirls into large mounds of fluffy white bubbles that nestle on the water's surface. Unfortunately, the delightful scent that I witnessed when sniffing the bottle is totally non existent, which I found extremely disappointing, particularly as my childhood memories of the brand were favourable. I cannot deny that the bubble soak is of a good quality, as plenty of soak bubbles are created from the smallest amount and these remain evident during my long hot soak despite the introduction of soap. However, even the bubbles do not offer the calming aroma of rosemary and eucalyptus, as the scent seems to totally vanish into thin air. Whilst I didn't for one minute expect the bath soak to relieve my stress, I had hoped for a relaxing aroma, which would have most definitely assisted.
On a positive note, the bath soak does not cause my skin to become dry or offer any adverse effects such as itchiness and the staying power of the bubbles is pretty good, as after pulling out the plug they refuse to budge. As we have noticed odours emitting from our bath plug hole, which has been due to a combination of my long hair and soap residue, it is essential that I swish all of the bubbles away to prevent a build up and this takes a few minutes with the aid of the shower head.
I cannot understand why Radox have lost the ability to provide scents in their bubble baths, as I've tried a few different fragrances; all of which are disappointing and what I would have previously described as a high quality brand has gone down considerably in my estimations. I will not waste the bubble soaks that I have remaining, but their sole purpose for me is to provide bubbles and reduce the soap scum that builds up around the edges of the bath. Whilst a 500 ml bottle should be used within 12 months of opening, it tends to last me almost two months with daily use. I would compare this product with a supermarket's own brand product and as a result, Radox Stress Relief receives only three stars from me. Radox Bath Soaks are frequently on offer for £1, which I would say is a fair price although it is doubtful I will opt for this brand again in the future.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
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.
When it comes to bubble baths Radox rules the roost for me and they now have so many different varieties to choose from there is one to suit everyone and their particular needs.
Radox stress relief herbal bath is the topic of this review, I have to admit I have very little in my life to get stressed about and I bought this particular one to try mainly because of the beautiful light blue colour of it.
I have to say though even though I am not feeling stressed, I do feel more relaxed and at ease after a long soak in this beautiful bubble bath.
The tranquil feeling and the beautiful aroma from this bubble bath really does take me to another place when I bath in it, I simply pour in a generous amount under hot running water than slip in close my eyes and drift off.
This bubble bath has rosemary as its main ingredient, rosemary is said to be an aid to circulation and the aroma is said to have a calming effect and it certainly seems to have just that, the fragrance is mainly one of rosemary but there are other subtle hints in the air with this stuff too and it really does smell divine.
A bottle of this Radox will set you back around £1.50 to £1.70 depending where you buy from, this is the typical price for all Radox bubble baths but be sure to look out for Asda two for £2 offer, I regularly stock up when it is on.
If you are feeling a bit stressed or even if you just want to properly chill out and relax (or chillax as my son calls it) then this Radox bubble bath come highly recommended by me.
I am not a big fan of bubble baths as a rule - I tend to get bad skin after using them or have other adverse reactions which I'd rather not go into here - but this bubble bath is one I have used to the end of the bottle and is one I'd consider buying again.
I say buying again, but I didn't actually buy it in the first place - my husband came home with it as a present for me! Radox Stress Relief bath therapy - I think he was trying to tell me something! It's scented with rosemary and eucalyptus and when your pour it into hot water the smell fills the bathroom instantly. The blend of both scents works well and doesn't make you think you're either being prepared for cooking like a leg of lamb, or have emersed yourself in a room designed to clear your head of a cold. It actually is quite relaxing.
The strange blue colour of the liquid disappears entirely once placed in the bath so there is no danger of you emerging from your soak looking like a smurf. I use about a fifty pence size dollop each time and this produces enough bubbles to indulge your pampered side but not enough to induce panic that you might drown in them.
The only complaint I have about this product is that my skin does feel a bit dried out afterwards, but I find that dropping a bit of baby oil in the bath with the radox will sort that out no problem at all.
RADOX STRESS RELIEF (Bath Therapy).
Having received a large whicker basket for Christmas filled with all my lovely things i like and products which i will review as i use them, from my Son for Christmas, i have been slowly trying some of the products and share my thoughts with you on these and my findings.
The Bottle **********
This Bath Therapy comes in a hard plastic clear see through bottle, that shows a lovely blue coloured liquid inside, that reminds me of a calming med Sea, refreshing and inviting.
This bottle contains 500 mls. You can recycle this bottle but please remove the cap first. The ingredients contained in this product are: Aqua, Citric Acid, Rosemary extracts, and Globulus oil to just mention a few.
When i opened this bottle (screw cap) the first thing i noticed was the smell that instantly hit my nose, it was a cross of eucalyptus and rosemary and it made me think Wow!.
Having run a lovely warm bath, i do have a shower but like a bath especially to help me relax and give myself some pampering time and i get my best inspirations when i am lying in a bath, strange but true.
I added a cap full to the running water.
The smell coming from the steam of the water, and the foam that this bath liquid produces is in itself relaxing to say the least. And very inviting to say the least. Just a little of this liquid which is not at all runny, is all that is needed to add to your bath water and that in itself produces a large amount of liquid and foam, you don't need to overdo it.Unless you need a bath and bathroom full of bubbles.
I found that this bath foam produces a lovely smell in the bathroom which i found to make me feel relaxed and happy.
Their claim on the back of their bottle states they have one hundred years of Radox know how put into producing their products, essential oils natural minerals, contribute to a perfect p h balance, and that this has the thumbs up from me, thanks to my son for buyinmg me this product, i will definitely be using this again ad again.
If you get this product in your eyes rinse well with cold water.
Well having had a few baths i this bath liquid, i would definetely say that it does work well, and the combinations of the essential oils and the Rosemary makes for a relaxing georgous smelling bath, which is now part of my bath treatment after any stressfull days work i have had.
I would recommend this product, if you can use bath liquids, i would definetely recommend this add to a nice warm bath whilst it is runninng, and maybe place a few candles in the bathroom, total relaxation just the best thing at the end of a hard days work, taking time to reflect on the days events and just for chilling out.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.
I wouldn't say I am a stressed person, but I do like the odd soak in the bath, and everyone says that Radox works pretty well. Since my job involves outside work in all the elements, it is nice to get into a hot bath and just have a lazy 20 minutes.
Before Christmas a lot of the Radox range was on offer for £1 per 500ml bottle. This was mostly in Sainsbury's, and the normal price in there was £2, so I got a couple in a few different kinds.
The bottle looks pretty plain. It is a plastic bottle with a sticky label on it. The gel is a blue colour and quite thick. I would say the bottle lasted about 10 goes, and that was with a generous amount which made a good amount of Bubbles.
The smell from this smelt a little clinical, a bit herby and sort of smelt like the Sea as well. I think the main ingredients in here is Rosemary, which is meant to help with stress and tension.
I don't know if it would help that much with stress, as I find it hard to understand a product that is so cheap that can help with something like that, but I did feel relaxed afterwards. To be fair I would probably feel like that after any bath, but I would like to believe even if it is psychological that this could help you.
I would buy this again as it made a nice bath, and although I would pay the full price, since I still have other Radox products just now I would keep an eye on it being on offer again.
This is a review of Radox Stress relief herbal bubble bath.
The label on the bottle says 'calm down and relax, with rosemary and eucalyptus' so with that advice ('calm down dear') I took the bottle into the bathroom!
I should explain, this one is the last in a long line of bubble baths received last Christmas from my Mother in Law who obviously thinks I need calming down.
I don't mind, I love a good soak. This Radox bubble bath is a delightful deep green colour and it does tint the bath water so you get that wonderful spa effect. It bubbles up well and lasts the duration of the bath which is a sign of a decent bubble.
Stress reliever? Well I find all baths do that as you can't do anything else for about 30 minutes (well, I read in the bath actually but that's just a bad habit). Yes, I think it did lower stress levels.
The scent of this product is also rather pleasing and reminds me of a nice outdoors-y forest and pine smell (but not loo-cleaner pine). Radox say they have 100 years of herbal know how and that's quite an impressive fact.
The bottle is 500 ml, so lasts a few weeks and is clear so you can see how much procuct is left. I think my MIL buys this when it's on offer at the supermarket throughout the year. I wouldn't think she pays more than £2 for a bottle.
Would I buy another bottle? Well I must admit I prefer the Pink limited edition Radox (I reviewed this a few weeks ago) but this is a good one for men as the green and the eucalyptus is an acceptable manly colour and smell. But I wouldn't mind another bottle of this in my Christmas box this year!
I love a bubble bath and have for years, everyday I look forward to my thirty minutes of peace and bubbles and have therefore tried almost every bath product that there is.
==== Why This One ====
Radox has been around for as long as I can remember actually over a hundred years and no I am not quite that old. It has always been a favorite in my house so I have gravitated to the Radox section eversince and get excited when i spot a new colour and version (No really I do!) but I always come back to this one.
===== The Product =====
Radox stress relief bath therapy is a bath soak that contains Rosemary and eucalyptus. It comes in a clear plastic bottle and the product inside is Blue.
It is made with a sprig or two of rosemary and a few drops of essential oils, natural minerals.
==== How To Use ====
Simply really just pour a cap full or two under running warm water and watch the bubbles fill the bath and the aromas fill your nose. I tend to use two capfuls as I do like the scent to be quite strong. It is also quite a thick liquid so you shouldn't pour too much in by accident.
==== The Scent ====
As soon as its poured into the bath the aroma fills the room and heads straight up my nose. I find that both the scents of rosemary and eucalyptus complimented each other well and neither seem to fight with the other and you get an even scent of both the main ingredients.
==== Bubble Factor ====
It did create a nice amount of bubbles but perhaps not as many as some but then again this is described as a bath soak rather than a bubble bath but there was enough for me to make silly shapes with (sorry perhaps that is too much information ). I also find that the bubbles lasted for quite a while but that maybe because once i'm in I don't move.
==== Did It Give Me Stress Relief ====
I have to say that I do tend to feel less stressed after a bath but that has perhaps more to do with the feeling of actually relaxing rather than the product itself. I have to say though that i find that the scent of the the bath soak really helps to clear my mind and if you are blocked up and have a cold you can really feel the vapours clearing your sinuses.
====My Conclusion ====
I think that this bath soak is among the best I have tried and the only ones that beat it are some very expensive brands that I was lucky enough to try so on balance it is the best in the price brand and as you really only need a capful or two it lasts along time.
I love the scent and it does calm and clear my mind and is the first thing I use if I have a cold or a stress headache as it helps it melt away and the really the bubbles are a bonus.
==== Downside ====
This is perhaps just me but my macho husband has taken to using this and enjoying a good bubble bath but I am afraid that he used the last bit six months ago and I am awaiting my divorce!
==== Price And Availability ====
Radox is available in most chemist and supermarkets and for the 500ml bottle cost approx £1.60.
I bought this bubble bath as I quite often have baths and like to relax in them. I had run out of my previous bubble bath which was quite cheap and didn't really do anything and bought this from Asda. Luckily it was on offer at £1 for the 1 litre bottle which I thought was really good value, considering its brand named and well known.
The main reason I bought it, aside from the price, was because of how it looked. Image sells thing to me! I liked the colour of it and that I could see it through the plastic bottle it's contained in. It was a lovely sea blue colour and states that it is stress relieving on the front. At the top of the bottle it states that it is Radox, this is a make I am very familiar with.
Upon opening, I sniffed the lotion to see what it smelt like. It was a pretty strong scent, but nice. I poured a little bit into the running water for my bath and immediately bubble appeared. In total, there weren't too many bubbles to suffocate me as it were, but enough to cover me and to help me relax.
The smell was nice to lay in and I still smell of it now. It seems that this product will last a fair few baths till it runs out.
I would defiantly recommend this. It's very relaxing, I can't comment if it helps with stress or not but I bought it for the colour after all =P
