      gentle moisturising wash

      With three bathrooms in my house and three young children we get through hand wash at a pretty quick rate. I tend to buy what ever is on offer at the time i do the shop. Last time i did my shop this radox hand wash was on offer.

      In asda i paid £1 for a bottle although i am not sure what the full rrp is £1 is really good price for a radox wash.

      The hand wash comes in a pump top bottle which easily dispenses the product on to your hand and lathers up really nicely when you mix with a little water.

      The soap is nice and gentle and i am more than happy for my kids to be using it. It has a lovely gentle sweet scent, sort of milky sweet. It leaves my hands feeling nice and squeaky clean and also really soft. It moisturisers my hands and keeps them from chapping even with the amount i am washing them and using other detergents.

      The product has lasted really well as one pump is definitely enough for a good hand wash. A full bottle has last us 2 weeks which is good going in my household especially when it was in the kitchen.

      Overall i really recommend this soap, its gentle enough for all of your family and leaves your hands feeling and smelling lovely too. When it is on offer is is well worth stocking up on in my opinion, definitely a good buy!

      Five out of five from me.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A quality soap with a strong scent.

      Currently (21/08/13) Radox Clean and Nourish handwash is on offer at Sainsburys - on a buy 4 for £3 basis with certain other Radox products. I decided to take advantage of the offer as it's always nice to have a good quality hand soap around.

      The product:

      I decided this was one for by the kitchen sink as it boasts natural anti-bacterial qualities and contains shea butter to nourish your skin. A product which says it is tough on germs and yet kind to my slightly sensitive skin seems a good idea in a busy kitchen. I am always washing my hands when I am working in there and find some soaps really dry out my hands.

      The product contains ginger and shea butter amongst other ingredients.

      Ingredients:Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Benzoate, Lactic Acid, Sine Adipe Lac, Zingiber Officinale Extract, Parfum, Sodium Chloride, Sorbitol, Sodium Lactate, Glycol Distearate, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Polyquaternium-7, PEG-75 Shea Butter Glycerides, Steareth-4, Dipropylene Glycol, Linalool, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Coumarin, Butylene Glycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Trideceth-7, CI 19140, CI 14700.

      Radox is a Unilever product and has been dermatologically tested.



      Experience of the product:

      The 300ml bottle looks attractive and advertises the fact that it is recyclable (except for pump). The soap is creamy with a slight orange/brown tint to it.

      The pump has a wide flat head and is simple to use- a relief, as I find some pumps very fiddly.

      The soap is rich and creamy and smells great. The scent is difficult to define. It is a rich, exotic smell. I can't make out a distinctive gingery aroma but there is a warm spiciness about its scent and I can tell there is shea butter in there as the smell also reminds me of one of my hand creams.

      The soap lathers up reasonably well - not thickly, but adequately. After rising and drying, my hands keep the pleasant fragrance of this product on them. My skin feels soft and not dried out at all. It does feel, however, as if there is still some product left on my hands. Perhaps this is a moisturising effect of the soap, I am not sure. I am in two minds about whether I like this effect or not. It feels like I have put hand cream on. This product certainly leaves my skin feeling different to the soap I'd been using before. I'll have to see if I get used to this difference.

      On reflection, this is perhaps not the best soap for the kitchen - there seems to be quite a lot of fragrance left on my hands and this doesn't seem ideal to me when you are handling food. One for the guest cloaks or bathroom instead I think.

      On the whole a good quality soap I would recommend. It does leave its presence around though. This may or not appeal to you. 4 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A super product for £1

        Radox Clean & Nourish Handwash

        When it comes to hand soap I like to have something that will moisturise as well as clean my hands with anti-bacterial action. So this Radox product ticked the boxes for me... I found it in the pound shop (the town I live in seems to have nothing else), and as such it was definitely affordable.

        The 300ml bottle comes filled with a creamy liquid soap that is filled with shea butter, and ginger. These two scents work well, and seem to harmonise well. I had thought the ginger may be overpowering - but it's lovely and subtle. The product is easily accessible in a clear bottle that has a pump dispenser. This measures out a good sized dollop, and the product is easily dissolved in water.

        As with most other had soaps it works into a nice lather, and it leaves a gentle fragrance on may hands after use. My hands are generally soft after use, although this hasn't been the case recently as I have been doing masses of gardening. I think that the extra frequent washing has made them dry out a little. This hasn't been a massive issue though, and I do feel this product gets 5 stars from me...

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Radox handwash

        Radox Clean and Nourish handwash is one of the liquid hand soaps that I have on rotation in my bathroom, guest bathroom and children's bathrooms so we can all clean our hands well after visiting the toilet. I say rotation because I use lots of different hand soaps, usually I buy them when they are on offer so I am only ever spending a pound or two.

        At the moment, they have this handwash in Poundland for the amazing price of, yes you've guessed one whole pound which is a great price in my opinion so I stocked up on a few.

        Radox make really luxurious bath and soap products and this handwash is one of my favourite ones. What I love about it is that it's lovely and creamy and quite nourishing on my hands. In fact, one of the products in this soap, shea butter is what Radox call naturally nourishing. I really like products with shea butter in as I find it really softening on my skin and this soap feels like it has loads in it.

        The great thing about this handwash is that it is antibacterial too so it's the perfect soap to have in my bathrooms as I know my hands and my kids hands are properly clean after suing it and it has killed any germs. My hands feel nice and clean too after I have used it which is nice. The soap comes in a nice looking plastic bottle that is pretty enough to store on my bathroom shelf and also has a plastic pump action at the top so its easy to pump the soap out into your hands and then wash with it.

        I also really like the smell of this handwash, its fresh and inviting and makes my hands smell nice during the day. The shea butter in this hand wash is mixed with a touch of ginger to give it a subtle caring fragrance. I really like the inclusion of ginger, it gives it a nice warm fragrance but it's not the overriding smell in this wash so its not too overpowering or gingery.

        All in all a nice way to wash your hands.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A nice hand wash

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        Softening handwash
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        As with all handwashes, I picked this up when it was on offer for around £1. It contains shea butter and is designed to soften and moisturise your hands while giving them a good clean!

        As with most handwashes, this comes in a fairly basic pump action bottle, and inside the bottle, you can see the hand wash is a nice creamy colour.

        ~~~~~~~~~~
        Smooth lather
        ~~~~~~~~~~
        The texture of this is quite creamy as you would expect, and it lathers up into a nice smooth lather - and you only need a pump or so of the soap to provide an adequate amount. It also has a lovely smell. I can definitely detect the shea butter, and it is quite a soothing fragrance with a slight hint of vanilla to it. I can also just about get the ginger too - I am not usually a big fan of ginger fragrances but luckily this is subtle enough to to be a problem for me in this case!

        This washes away quickly and easily, and it leaves hands nice and soft after use, although I do still tend to use a moisturiser after my hands have been dried.

        ~~~~~~~~
        In summary
        ~~~~~~~~
        Overall this is a really good handwash that I like using. It seems to last for ages as you don't need too much, and it has a nice fragrance. I would buy this one again. It is available from the usual places and can be found on offer for about £1.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I think I'd buy it again and have no complaints....

          We use quite a lot of liquid Handwash products in our household, and I have recently purchased two such products from the well-known 'Radox' brand, paying around £1 per bottle in a recent promotion in my local Tesco store. This review will focus on my experiences of using the "Radox Clean & Nourish Handwash With Shea Butter & Ginger."

          The bottle is 300ml in size which I think is fairly generous considering I only paid around £1 for the product. I would point out however, that the Radox Handwash products generally retail for around double this amount, depending on where you purchase the items from.

          The packaging is in keeping with most other liquid handwash products that I buy on a regular basis, comprising of a sturdy plastic bottle with a 'pump' dispenser contained within, to allow you to easily dispense the product. The bottle in this case is made of clear coloured plastic, so I am able to see the creamy handwash quite easily. I can confirm too that the pump dispenser has not been difficult for me to use, even though there are times when products like this one pose some difficulties for me as I have mobility issues affecting the strength in my hands.

          The product is described on the packaging in the following statement; "Nourish Handwash with Natural Antibacterial Ingredients - Clean & Nourish your hands with shea butter & ginger." I thought this statement sounded quite reassuring, especially in respect of the Antibacterial Ingredients contained within. I do feel more confident when using a handwash product that has these qualities, particularly as I have a compromised Immune System as a result of illness. I tend to find I am prone to catching bugs and colds very easily, so I do feel that using a handwash product with Antibacterial properties goes some way to offering a little reassurance in terms of leaving my hands as clean as they can possibly be. For these reasons, I admit that I did find the claim "Removes 99.9% Of Bacteria" that is printed on the front of the bottle reinforced this reassurance.

          The consistency of the handwash is rather pleasant, being purely cream-based in both its texture and appearance. It reminds me of a sort of 'Bath Cream' type product, although it is a little thinner than this, which allows it to be spread over the skin's surface easily and without fuss. It has a 'magnolia' type hue to its colour, and it feels smooth and quite silky to the touch.

          I find that a gentle lather is created, and quite easily so, as I smooth the handwash over the hands' surface. This feels soft and certainly gentle, but with enough 'oomph' to effectively remove any dirt or grease from my hands, leaving them spotlessly clean and without any sort of 'tackiness' or residue. I find too that one pump from the bottle's dispenser provides enough liquid to efficiently cope with washing my hands properly without additional pumps being required. This result allows the purchase price of the product to feel wholly justified, and the bottle has lasted for a reasonable amount of time, allowing it to feel economical in my household.

          A further point to note, I think, is the fact that this particular handwash seems to be slightly less harsh than other products I have been using recently that have felt as if they are 'stripping' something from my sensitive skin, often leaving it itchy or feeling particularly harsh. None of these traits have been present whilst the Radox Handwash has been used, which makes me wonder if this is down to the cream-type consistency that this product carries. Certainly, I have no dispute in terms of the "Clean & Nourish" claims made by the manufacturers and agree that the product DOES feel rather more nourishing than some of its rivals from other ranges. In addition, my skin has suffered nothing in the way of aggravation, with the troublesome eczema I suffer from at times remaining 'hushed' throughout the time I have been using this product. This too indicates to me that the product carries a surprisingly mild and gentle formulation.

          The scent of the Radox Clean & Nourish Handwash is really quite pleasant, with the familiar scent of Shea Butter being difficult to miss. I find this scent is the main one present during and after use, with the scent of ginger feeling like little more than a whisper within the sweet, buttery scent of Shea Butter. This is an observation rather than a criticism, but I have to confess that I'd probably not have been able to identify the product's ginger content if I had been using the product blind.. It just feels too understated to be particularly recognisable. In saying all of that, there is nothing off-putting or unpleasant about the scent of the handwash, and I have really no complaints in terms of its attractiveness or its longevity, as I am able to detect the softly-sweet aroma on my skin for quite a while after using. True, the Shea Butter content within this creamy handwash makes it feel slightly more feminine than other, similar, products that I buy regularly, but again this is not a criticism, and I find the sweet, buttery aroma suits my own tastes down to the ground.

          In summary, I would recommend the Radox Clean & Nourish Handwash, as I have found it to be a perfectly pleasant liquid handwash product that works quite well. I have found too that it is perfectly suited to my own, hyper-sensitive skin and so have no difficulty in recommending the product for use by those consumers who suffer with this complaint as I do. I think that it is slightly more expensive than other products available from alternative brands, but this price is somewhat justified as not only has the bottle lasted well, with only a small amount being required with each use, but I am confident in the assurance that the product is able to cope with bacteria and germs effectively. I really have no complaints to report so I do feel that full marks in the product rating score are more than justified, on this occasion.

          You can purchase the Radox Clean & Nourish Handwash from most larger supermarkets including Tesco, where the normal price is £1.90 for the 300ml bottle.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A really great handwash

            I always have a bottle of handwash in my bathroom and tend to flit between Carex and Radox depending on which is on offer at the time of me buying them. Most of the time you can pick the handwashes up at £1 each either on a supermarket offer or in the discount style stores which we are lucky as we have quite a few in our area.

            The products comes in a see through plastic bottle which has a pump action top to make it easy to dispense, the pump is white in colour and you can see through the bottle to the product which is cream in colour. On the front of the bottle it states it has "natural antibacterial ingredients."

            The pump is easy to activate simply by turning to the left and to close again you turn to the right although I leave the pump open in our bathroom to make it easier for my daughter to use by herself.

            The soap is really thick and feels luxurious, the soap lathers well aslong as your hands are properly wet and it rinses away from your skin easily and leaves hands feeling lovely and soft. The soap smells fruity and buttery at the same time or at least that's what my nose picks up!

            A bottle of the soap lasts about 4 to 6 weeks in my bathroom which with 3 of us using it I think is a decent amount of time. My hands feel lovely after use and it doesn't sting my hands at all which is sometimes a problem for me as I have contact dermatitis. The smell remains on your hands for quite a long time and when you move your hands you often get a whiff of it. I would recommend this product it is really great value.

            Recommended

            Some time ago when Morrisons were selling Radox handwash at £1 a bottle I stocked up on a variety of different ones from the range. I only buy big brand handwash when it's on this kind of offer because I find the one Morrisons make is perfectly adequate but sometimes it's just nice to have a change. The Radox clean and nourish was one that caught my eye because it has shea butter in it and as I have very dry hands alot of the time I try to avoid drying hand products.

            I'm not sure what the usual price for this is but when I paid a pound for it I got a 300ml pump dispenser bottle which was a reasonable bargain. Aside from the shea butter this also contains ginger which I thought might be a bit warming, I also have problems with very cold hands too! Radox handwashes help maintain the skin's proper ph, contain added moisturisers, can be used by all the family, are dermatologically tested and apparently contain "100 years of Radox know-how" which is an odd crowing kind of claim in my opinion! The bottle can be recycled but not the pump part.

            I had this in the bathroom and the fact it claims to be a natural antibacterial made me even more pleased I'd bought it. That kind of claim tends to appeal to me so I hope it's true! The soap itself is a light pale orange which I suspect is to make us think of ginger, it smells very slightly fruity but is saved by the ginger fragrance for me because I don't like fruity soaps much. The pump is a wide one which is easy to press and open for first use.

            My first thought when I tried the handwash was the pump dispensed far more than you need for a bog standard wash, I only pressed the pump down halfway from that point on which dispenses a more moderate but still plentiful amount of soap and of course makes it last longer. The ginger smell is lovely when you have the soap out in your hands ready for washing and does remain on the skin for a while afterwards too. I found this lathered up well and rinsed off with no residue left behind which is good because I'm not keen on being able to feel any sort of product on my hands. I didn't find it especially moisturising if I'm honest but nor did it dry my hands out so it should be fine for others with dry hands as long as you realise the need for a hand cream too. The bottle lasted me a few weeks and I had no problems with leaking nozzles or a blocked dispenser so I got exactly what I was after in a handwash that smelt nice and proved to be economical.

            Overall this smells nice and when on offer is a tempting buy, I do think a half depression of the pump is enough however and also don't expect the shea butter to be evident and moisturising but it's one to try if you like the smell of ginger and just fancy something different. A 4 star rating from me.

            Another great product by radox!!

            I am a bit fanatic about keeping hands clean and I tend to use alot of handwashes, Radox always comes up smelling of roses (or in this case shea butter and ginger) lol.
            I love this one as it is antibacterial which is a must for me as I am constantly changing nappies or even worse stoma bags so I always have to have a handwash I can rely on. My hands seem to be constantly dry so I was hoping this would also help with that.

            This bottle is a 300ml type of bottle dispenser which has a pump that you press down on to release the handwash into your hands.
            It is a clear bottle that has a simple sticker on the front that says radox, it then says clean and nourish followed by natural antibacterial handwash. Radox claim that this is naturally caring for hands. As this is a clear bottle you can see that the handwash is like an almond colour or buttery colour. There is a picture on the front also that is of wheat.

            Radox claim that this handwash:
            helps maintain skins natural PH balance
            contains added moisturisers
            effective and caring for all the family
            dermatalogically tested
            100 years of radox know how

            You might be pleased to know you can recycle this bottle but please remove the pump first.
            If you are to get any of this in your eyes rinse well with clean water.

            I generally buy this product when it is half price in Morrisons, therefore making it 82p ( bargain) I like to smell the product before I buy it so this is what i did in morrisons and This one smells gorgeous, almost creamy I would say. Instantly this alone made me buy it.
            When I used this I was impressed as the pump is easy to use and the liquid comes out well, it is a nice consistancy I would say, neither runny or thick.
            I normally find that alot of these pumps either break or stop working due to being all clogged up but I dont have this trouble with this.
            Once I have washed my hands The smell just lingers all around me and it lasts for quite a while on my hands. I would say this product lasts 1 month but this is with 2 of using it about 7 times a day.

            I would reccomend this product to everyone, I think it is a must have to have in everyones bathroom/ kitchen. I have one in both these rooms.
            I will definatly be giving this a 5 star rating as I can not find anything wrong with this product at all.

            If you would like anymore information on this product or radox in general go to www.radox.co.uk

            A bargain hand wash!

            I picked this up in Tesco as it was only £1 for 300ml, as I have said in my other handwash reviews I go through an awful lot of this stuff and I have been trying for weeks to find the best one out there. My hands have been really dry lately and I tried several Carex handwashes and they didn't help.

            Radox state that this handwash will not only clean your hands but nourish and moisturise dry skin too. This handwash contains shea butter and ginger. It is also naturally antibacterial. This handwash is a peachy colour and has a very creamy consistency. To use you simply dispense a small amount onto wet hands and massage in to form a lather. The first thing you notice is the smell it is really nice, it reminds me of gingerbread men. The soap also rinses off really well.

            After using this my hands felt soft and moisturised. It removed all traces of dirt from my hands and left them with a subtle smell.

            This is one of my favourites in the Radox range and for the price you get good value for money.

              An excellent handwash the works really well

              I love Radox products and so this is my first choice for a handwash and this one is really lovely.

              I paid £1 for it which is a very good price for such a good quality handwash and is a nice size bottle as it lasts a long time but is not so big it looks overpowering in my bathroom.

              I chose this handwas as it has shea butter and ginger and it says it is natural antibacterial which is good as it kills bacteria but also smells lovely. It has a lovely fresh creamy smell that I can smell on my hands after I have washed them so they feel fresh and clean. It is also a very nice creamy foamy texture and really feels like you have given your hands a good wash when you have used this.

              I also enjoy using this handwash becasuse it makes my hands feel soft and smooth and with it being Radox I feel it cares for my skin at the same time as cleaning so is the best of both worlds.

              I also like this handwash as opposed to others because of the colour of it. It is a nice creamy colour and doesn't stand out like a sore thumb like some other handwashes do that are bright blue and green and so this is just a subtle pleasant addition to my bathroom.

              After my boys decided they would have fun n my bathroom by squeezing all the hand soap down the toilet I had to find a replacement. This Radox clean and nourish one was on offer in my local supermarket so I decided to give it a try as it was a good cheap price.

              ~~PACKAGING~~

              The hand wash comes in a plastic bottle which has a push down dispenser on the top. The bottle is clear so the cream coloured soap can be seen, this is good as it let me see exactly how much is left in the bottle. The front of the bottle has the Radox logo and the product name on and there is a small picture of some ginger in the bottle left hand corner. The back of the bottle had all of the had wash information, directions for use and ingredients.

              ~~USE AND RESULTS~~

              The use the soap it is very easy, the push down dispenser just needs to be pressed down with one hand and the other underneath it so catch the soap which is squirted out. When first using the soap the dispenser needs to be twisted to open the seal. I fin that 2 squirts is more than enough on my boys small hand and three squirts is enough for me.

              The soap has a very pleasant smell which is noticeable immediately when squeezed onto the hands. The smell is supposed to be of ginger and shea butter but for me it smells more like vanilla! The soap does make a good lather when squeezed onto wet hands and this is very easy to remove under a running tap. Once the soap has been washed off am pleased to say the smell does go from the hands as I cannot stand have soap smelling hands when I am trying to eat food. One bonus with the smell is that it does remain in the bathroom for about 15 minutes after the soap has been used and I find it lovely to walk into the bathroom and be able to smell it.

              I have been using this now for over a week and I have not had any problems, t has not dried out my skin like other soaps have and it has actually moisturised the skin and made it look very healthy. My hubby has sensitive skin and he too has not had any problems with this soap.

              ~~INFO~~

              There is a warning on the back of this bottle which says to avoid contact with the eyes but if this does happen then they should be rinsed with warm clear water.

              The soap comes in a bottle size of 300ml and we are not even half way through the bottle yet so I am hoping this will last for about 3 weeks and that is with 5 people using it several times each day.

              The ingredients for the soap for those wishing to know are:-

              Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betain, Sodium Benzoate, Lactic Acid, Sine Adipe Lac, Zingiber Officinale Extract, Parfum, Sodum Chloride, Sorbitol, Sodium Lactate, Glycol Distearate, Styrene / Acrylates Copolymer, Polyquarternium-7, PEG-75 Shea Butter Glycerides, Steareth-4, Dipropylene Glycol, Linalool, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Coumarin, Buthylene Glycol, PEG-40, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Trideceth-7, CI 19140, CI 14700

              The shelf life for the hand wash once opened is 12 months.

              ~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~

              Fortunately this was on offer when I bought it so I only paid £1 in Asda, I am not sure what the full price is but do try the local Pound shops as they sometimes have the Radox products on sale. All good supermarkets do stock this hand wash and the others in this range.

              ~~RECOMMENDED?~~

              This hand wash gets the full 5 stars from me as it was a good price, it clean hands well and does not dry out the skin. The smell is lovely and it does not stay on the hands but it does make the bathroom smell good after use.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              RADOX HANDWASH DOES NOT FLOAT MY BOAT!!

              I always like to have an attractive, stylish handwash in my bathroom. I think it adds a nice touch to your bathroom decor and also helps to keep hands smelling fresh and clean. I have to admit I am a bit of a handwash floozy and tend to flit between what ever handwash tempts me when Im shopping. This is why I came to buy radox clean and nourish handwash.

              This handwash looked very appealing when sat on the supermarket shelf. It looked quite luxurious and it's scent was described as containing shea butter and ginger. I thought this sounded different and quite indulging and decided to give it a try. This 300ml plastic handwash cost £1. which I thought was exceptionally good value especially considering this product carried the highly respected radox branding.

              When I got this home and began to use this handwash I was delighted at how easy the dispenser was to use. I have bought handwash in the past that is quite hard to dispense, but this was very easy and only required slight pressure in order for the pump action to work effectivley.

              Initially, I thought that the fragrance of this soap was sublime. The scent of vanilla with a hint of ginger was exceptional. It filled my bathroom and left a delicious scent to my hand. I also noticed how smooth and silky my hands felt after using this handwash. It obviously has moisturising properties as it really had a positive effect on the texture of my hands.

              Im afraid that this love story is not going to have a happy ending. Things started going wrong by the second day of using this product. The problem was the scent. What had been so delicious initially was now making me feel nausea. The scent is far too strong and cloying. I found that it was really getting me down. I could constantly smell this scent lingering on my skin for hours after usage.

              My husband is a man's man, he is a rugby boy who does not care what soap we use. However even he made an official complaint to me regarding this soap. He claimed it was making him smell like a tart. This is not good for a 19 stone fella who's built like a brick poop house!!

              So this handwash was wasted, thrown away never to be bought or spoken of again. I found the whole product too intense. The soap was too concentrated. I found that although I only used a small amount, it was quite difficult to rinse of and left a rather sticky and greasy residue.

              This product was certainly not to my tastes. I wouldn't really recommend this product to anyone. It is just too overpowering which if im honest makes the use of this handwash really unpleasing. I won't be buying this again!!

                recommended handwash for all the family

                It's usually left to me do do all the jobs around the house & I do notice sometimes that after cleaning & doing the washing up of those items our old dishwasher cannot deal with that my hands need a fairly decent handwash.

                I'm not one for rubber gloves as I find them a bit cumbersome & smelly & I find the plastic ones are only really useful when dealing with food because they're pretty flimsy - so naked hands it is!

                I've tried all sorts of handwashes & usually try to stock up when I see them on offer because I don't like spending over the odds for anything especially if it's literally going down the sink.

                I was tempted by this Radox natural antibacterial handwash when I saw it in one of our many poundshops as it states on the front of the container that it has shea butter & ginger in it - a combination I've not seen in any other handwash. I like pump action bottles (once someone's got them going for me!) - nothing worse than gunge on the kitchen window sill.

                I've always been pleased with Radox products & wasn't disappointed at all by this - in fact I think I'd probably pay the RRP of around £2 & pop one in our downstairs loo & the bathrooms.

                The texture is a lot thicker than many I've previously used - it's a nice peachy colour, doesn't drip & is easy to work into the hands, around the nails & wrists. The smell is lovely - predominantly ginger but I'm sure there's vanilla in there too - & would be fine for both sexes as it's not floral like many on the market.

                It also rinses off easily without leaving any residue yet the hands still smell nice, feel very clean & soft.

                A full list of ingredients is printed on the reverse of the container (quite small print & many don't mean much to me as I don't have a science degree) plus there's directions on how to make the most out of the handwash & a website address. Radox state on the bottle that the product contains 'added moisturisers' which 'help maintain the pH balance of the skin' etc, that it's suitable for all members of the family & is dermatologically tested. After use the pacakaging can be re-cycled which is good.

                summary
                ~
                - a good sturdy pump-action container.
                - nice & thick, easy to use.
                - makes the hands feel really clean & soft.
                - smells lovely!
                - a recommended handwash from Radox.

                  Try and SEE

                  This hand wash is made by Radox- a well known company for their excellent bath,shower and soap ranges. I came across this particular hand wash when I was in Tesco doing my weekly shop and I picked it up on offer for only £1.00! Which I thought was great for one of the Radox range.

                  This product is Radox Clean and Nourish Hand wash. It is a natural antibacterial and smells like shea butter and ginger which is extremely pleasant. Radox blend a lot of natural ingredients to gain the natural antibacterial element which makes it very useful for children and adults especially when Swine Flu is going around.

                  Not only is this product an antibacterial, the shea butter provides the nourishing effect making your hands smooth and soft. Also, it gives off a lovely fragrance which feels warming and calm. It smells good enough to eat!

                  This hand wash helps to maintain your skin's natural PH balance so you can see why it makes your hands a lot smoother and refreshed. It also contains added moisturisers and can be used for all of the family!

                  This can be picked up from all good supermarkets, pharmacies and health and beauty stores. I personally got this for 1.00 on offer, but the offer probably won't still be valid now. The normal price is no more than £2.00 which is not too bad!

                  The reason why I like this is the fact that it makes my hands clean, soft and gentle. It also makes my hands smell absolutely gorgeous and makes me want to keep using it! I am loyal to this product because of it's positive effects and I needed to tell all just how good it is!

                  I really do not see any down sides to this soap at all. It is one of the best and is definitely worth trying! 5/5 from me!
