“ Brand: Radox / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
With shower gels and creams I really do get through rather a lot of them a I am a clean freak! Because I get through so much stuff I do try, whenever I can to find product that are of a good brand but that are on offer or in a discount store type of thing and recently I purchased this in Poundland costing of course a pound and this fitted in with my idea of what I wanted lol.
250ml see-through plastic bottle with a flip-top lid to the bottom of it concealing a small hole. On the front of the bottle I am told that it is Radox Green Tree Infusion, Wellbeing 'Powerful natural anti-oxidants from green tea combined with delicate jasmine. Calm your mind and sooth your body' and I am told that Radox have been blending natural herbs since 1908 and there is a picture of tea leafs and a white flower on there. On the back of the bottle other information given include being told a bit about the product, ingredients are listed as is the size and contact details for Sara Lee (the manufacturer of the product) are also given. Simple bottle but it is informative enough and easy to use the product....it is.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Back Of The Bottle:
We've taken natural Green Tea and added a few drop of jasmine oil to calm your mind and gently soothe your body. The perfect start to any day.
What's Gone Into It?:
100 years of Radox know-how
A handful of Green Tea
A few drop of jasmine oil
A thumbs-up from the skin experts.
The shower gel is white and although runny enough to get out of the bottle isn't like water neither. It has a pungent smell to it which in my opinion is very unisex indeed. It has a very faint floral based smell to it with a hint of green tea about it as well and that is very well blended indeed.
It lathers up when skin is moist/wet really well releasing it's aroma as well a lather. You can shave your bits and bobs with it if desired and it's incredibly soft on the skin.
It rinses off with total ease, leaves the skin gently fragranced for a few hours and leaves skin feeling clean, soft and supple and all round in my opinion this is a nice buy as it feels a quality product!
Available in all good supermarkets and chemists and if not on offer it cost around £1.99 a bottle.

Every other week my Gran buys me some sort of shower gel, I don't know how she thinks I get through it that quickly but I'm not complaining as I get a great choice of new products for free!!
So about a month ago my gran bought me this shower gel which I'd never had before. She seemed to think it was relatively new and thought it smelt quite nice.
I had a sniff to find it was actually quite strong and smelt particularly orangey, but I thought I should give it a proper try in the shower later on.
Applying it to my spongey thing I really only needed a little bit as it lathered up a lot. The smell was quite pleasant but quite fruity which I could imagine some people would not like. Even though the smell is quite fruity, the showergel is actually supposed to be a white tea infusion but I don't think white tea smells of much because its mainly orange you can smell! But it isn't like a satsuma orange smell, it is quite pleasant.
The colour of the showergel isn't the nicest colour, its like a creamy off white colour, but this doesn't really bother me! It does make you think more of white tea than orange though so probably takes some of the emphasis off the orange smell! If you know what I mean!
I couldn't really smell the showergel on my skin afterwards which I was quite glad about as I didn't really want to smell like an orange. But I did feel really refreshed and energised.
I've since used the showergel after doing vigorous excercise and have found it really nice to use as it makes me feel extra fresh after a nice hot shower.
I wouldn't say the showergel makes my skin feel amazing but it doesn't make it feel bad either. It just makes it feel normal!
The showergel is easy to use as well, not fiddly and you can get every last drop out of it as it stands on the lid.
I've been using the showergel for about 3 weeks now and still have just under half of the bottle left. So it definately goes a long way.
Also I was in Savers the other day and intrigued to find out the price of the showergel. It was actually only £1.95 which is really not much at all in comparison to others.
Overall a great refreshing every day showergel which I would probably buy again.
I have always been a fan of Radox products as I always feel they are good quality and have a great range of scents. So when I saw they had some new shower gels I hadn't tried and that they were on offer I couldn't resist!
This shower gel is the Radox White Tea Infusion shower. To be honest its really more of a cream than a gel but its easier to call it a shower gel!
The gel comes in plastic bottle which you can see through so you know exactly how much gel is left. There are no hooks on these bottles so if you don't have a shelf in your bathroom its not very easy to use, thankfully I have a shelf so it doesn't bother me. It has a flip open cap at the bottom and you can easily dispense the amount of gel you need.
The writing on the packaging tells me that the gel is made with "'powerful natural anti-oxidants from white tea combined with rich orange blossom. Revive your mind and protect your skin."
The white tea and orange blossom oil are designed to "brighten up your morning and leave your skin feeling silky smooth"
The shower gel is a lovely creamy white colour and has a nice pearly texture to it. The fragrance is the best thing about this it smells of orange but not like a really citrusy orange but a delicate light orange fragrance, I love it. I cant say I can detect the smell of any white tea but then I wouldn't know what white tea smells like, if it even has a smell.
It foams up really well in my hands and you get a good lather, it is a gel that is really moisturising and you can feel this as soon as you start to use it. After using it my skin feels much softer and moisturised and also delicately fragranced.
The shower gel retails around £1.99 but I think I got mine in Tesco on a buy one get one free offer so as always it is worth shopping around.
This is a lovely shower gel and I would definitely buy it again.
As usual I received a lot of lovely smellies for Christmas including about a dozen shower gels! For my shower this morning I chose the Radox White Tea Infusion Wellbeing variety and I wasn't disappointed although to be fair I am rarely disappointed with any of the Radox products!
This shower gel comes in an opaque plastic container which is the same shape as all the other Radox shower gels - there is a picture at the top of this review so you can see the sort of thing I mean.
The main difference is that this one does not have a hook clipped to it as most of the others do so if you don't have a shelf in your shower this could make using this one a bit of a nuisance.
The label on the front has the usual Radox logo in green together with the words 'white tea infusion' and the word 'wellbeing' written on a strip of silver so that you have to tilt it towards the light to be able to read it!
The writing underneath says 'powerful natural anti-oxidants from white tea combined with rich orange blossom. Revive your mind and protect your skin'. There is also a circular logo with the words 'Blending natural herbs since 1908' written around it.
Then there is a picture which I assume is a white tea plant and maybe an orange blossom flower although, since I have no idea what either should look like it could be anything!
On the back it tells us that they have 'taken natural white tea and added a few drops of orange blossom oil to brighten up your morning and leave your skin feeling silky smooth'.
There is also the obvious safety information telling you to rinse out your eyes with clear water should you happen to get any of the shower gel in them.
The Shower Gel Experience
As I squeezed a blob of shower gel out into my hand the fragrance that wafted up from it was lovely! I always find smells difficult to describe but it is sweet without being sickly and the orange blossom fragrance is apparent although not knowing what white tea smells like I wouldn't know if that is in there too!
It is a pearlescent white in colour and lathers up very well, increasing the fragrance as it does.
After rinsing the shower gel off the smell remained both on my skin and in the air in the bathroom and it did leave my skin feeling lovely and smooth. I also found that the cream did seem to moisturise my skin.
Radox is made by Sara Lee, which is a part of H & BC UK Ltd. I have now found out that it is the same firm that makes the gateaux, which I always do find a strange mix of products for one firm.
There is more information about the company and this shower gel on their website which can be found at www.radox.co.uk
Since this was a present I didn't have a clue how much it had cost but looking in Boots the normal price is currently £1.99 mark although they are often available as part of a buy one get one free offer so stock up!!
Incidentally this fragrance is also available in bubble bath too although it is so rare that I have a bath - I prefer the speed of a shower - that I probably won't be trying that!
Well Dave has found me yet another winner from Radox! As with the majority of their shower gels I really like this one and would be happy to replace it once it has run out.
I purchased this new variation of Radox recently for around £2 for a 250ml bottle. It's a unique looking bottle in a kind of wave shape and really stood out to me on the shelf. I was also attracted by the idea of a 'tea' shower gel - it just sounded really different from the usual range available and I thought I'd give it a try.
The bottle itself is see-through, with a handy downwards dispensing cap, and simple labelling on the front and back of the bottle. The front label shows a small pile of tea and an orange blossom flower - quite a subtle and classy design. The back has the ingredients list. I won't list all of the components as there's quite a few and they have long chemical names that don't mean a lot to me to be honest!
I always do the 'smell test' before buying shower gels - and this one smells delicious. It has a hint of orange citrus scent, without being too overpowering, and I found it quite relaxing. The gel looks attractive too, it's a pale pearlescent creamy colour and isn't too thick or too watery.
Using the product, I was very pleased. This shower gel foams really well and leaves you feeling squeaky clean and smelling lovely. It didn't dry out my skin either. I guess the only downside to this shower gel is that it's a little on the pricey side - but definitely worth looking out for anyway, particularly if it's on special offer.
