Advantages: Smells absolutely stunning and thoroughly cleanses the skin
Disadvantages: The dispensing unit drips
I adore beautiful toiletries and whilst I am brand loyal when it comes to products for my skin, I tend to swap and change those that I use for hand washing, showering and bathing. I've always enjoyed using Radox, as I consider their products to be indulgent. A limited edition hand wash that caught eager eye was their Brazilian Fusion with this review discussing my thoughts.
Whilst I do not find the appearance of the off yellow/tan coloured hand wash to be particularly appealing, it was the fragrance description that was my deciding factor. Brazilian Fusion contains a fragrant blend of dragon fruit, which belongs to the cactus family and offers a juicy aroma together with the aromatic camu camu berry, which is high in vitamin C and known for its health benefits.
The dispensing unit on all of the Radox hand washes offer a bulky and cumbersome appearance, which I find a little unsightly. However, despite it being chunky, the small aperture enabled a sufficient amount of the good consistency hand wash to be released with one single press. An issue that I find very frustrating with many brands is that the unit tends to dribble after use and unfortunately, this was an issue I experienced. In order to resolve this problem, I needed to gently wipe underneath the small opening following each use.
I was totally won over by the stunning aroma of Brazilian Fusion with its delightful and perfectly balanced combination of floral and fruity tones. Whilst some floral fragrances can be a little sweet and overpowering, both the dragon fruit and camu camu berry both work well to create a favourable unisex scent. In relation to its qualities as a hand wash, I found that the product created a good lather, which enabled me to effectively wash my hands. Furthermore, it was easily rinsed away without leaving any stickiness. I favour those hand washes that leave a delicate aroma on my skin following use and Brazilian Fusion did not disappoint, as I was able to witness its scent an hour or so following use.
I suffer with problematic skin on my hands, which can become extremely dry, split and subsequently bleed. However, my condition has been under control for several months due to the carefully chosen products that I use and as a result, I am wary when trying out new brands. Fortunately, I suffered no discomfort when using, such as dryness or itching, as whilst the hand wash was effective I found it to be extremely gentle.
I would not hesitate in recommending Radox Brazilian Fusion although I am disappointed that it is a limited edition product. Whilst the hand wash normally sells for around the £1.99 mark, which I feel is far too expensive, at the time of writing it can be purchased from Boots for 99p. In addition, you can also purchase the equally delightful matching 500 ml bath soak from Boots for the discounted price of £1.
Due to my positive experiences with using this hand wash it receives four stars from me, as I feel it necessary to remove one due to the high price tag in addition to the leaky dispensing unit.
Summary: A gorgeous hand wash from Radox, which unfortunately, is a limited edition
