“ Brand: Radox / Type: Hand Wash / Suitable for: Hand „
==Radox Clean and pamper Hand Wash==
We have very recently put our flat on the market and before doing so I thought our bathroom could do with a little bit of "dressing up" so proceeded to remove all traces of Jacks toys and bath and shower products that were not needed out on show and head out to add a bit of colour to the room. I decided on a deep purple colour as there seems to be a lot of this about at the moment and picked up a new bin, new sets of towel, vase and dish which have been filled with fake flowers but I still felt as though the room needed a bit more of the purple and this is where this soap comes into it.
I think I would have picked up any make or any type of hand wash so long as it was a nice purple colour but as it happened at the time when I was in Poundstretcher this was the only hand wash in purple that they sold but thankfully it was a cheap price and a nice colour so I added it to the bathroom.
==Price and Availability==
I can't say I have seen this hand wash around before but I do tend to just get whatever one is on offer when I do my weekly shop in Morrison's or Tesco's and am never on the hunt for a particular one. However seeing as purple is the new bathroom colour must have then I would have thought this will be in most places and easy to pick up.
For the 99p I paid for this 300ml bottle I think the price is really good. You can sometimes pay a few pounds for a hand wash or even more if you were buying something more special from Boots or the like. For me however I often like to pick up a couple of bottles when there half price at around the 50p region but like I say this was the only purple one available which is why I chose it.
the design of the bottle is the same as all the other Radox hand washes and this design is actually better than a lot of other hand washes that are being sold. The reason for this is that the top area of the bottle where you push down to pump is a larger area and this makes it far more easier and much more comfortable to dispense the soap onto the hands especially when the hands are wet. The chunky shape of the clear plastic bottle itself means that it doesn't topple over easy and stays firm even when you are pushing the pump down.
The purple product inside the bottle is a lavender and magnolia scent and it is a "caring hand wash" which contains a blend of natural herbs and minerals and supposedly better for your hands than other products like this and is an "everyday bit of luxury" (or so it says on the back).
The hand wash does look good in my bathroom, there is no question, so there. It has instantly fulfilled all I wanted it to do but it also has done a great job on my old hard working hands too! My hands are often scrubbing something or other or generally getting dirty (which I don't mind) and they are always being washed because of this so I find myself not only going through a lot of hand washes but also using a lot of hand creams to keep the dry skin I suffer with at bay.
Since using this hand cream in the bathroom I can honestly say that I have noticed a bit of improvement in the fact that they are not left so dry and old looking. I wouldn't say that they have made my hands look younger or better but they have stopped the endless cycle of me having to apply hand cream each and every time I wash my hands. This is a bonus because although applying hand cream is great for the hands, its not so great when you want to use your iphone (greasy finger prints), pick up a cup of tea (very slippery) or rub your eyes (blurred vision) and can be expensive because of buying so much of the stuff!
I do still apply hand cream to my hands at night but when using this Radox wash I don't find them quite as dry as they did even using the last bottle we had which was Palmolive. Not does the skin feel less dry but the hands themselves feel clean and fresh. The fragrance of the hand wash is really rather nice too and the thick purple pearl coloured product smells very much of the magnolia with the lavender as a background smell I find. The two mixed together create a lovely aroma which is quick to fragrance the bathroom and leave the scent on your hands for a short while after washing. The bubbles that are created under the running warm water are a good amount and the excessive rubbing I give them means the scented bubbles are flowing even more.
All in all I think I made a good purchase when I picked this up, as far as hand washes go this is a good one. The style is good (especially the lovely colour) and the pump bottle, which is recyclable, works well and lasts a relatively good amount of time seeing as one pump is all you need to do the job well (as I keep reiterating to Jack but will he listen!). The fragrance is something I really like along with the fact that it leaves my hands in a less dry state than other hand washes.
I haven't got a bad word to say about it and I feel that a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a high recommendation is very much in order. Get yourself a new purple bathroom!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Whilst I tend to use a somewhat basic antibacterial hand wash in my kitchen I always love to buy something a little more luxurious for my bathroom but without the luxurious price tag. Consequently, a product that ticked all the necessary boxes for me is Radox Clean and Pamper, which is a natural antibacterial hand wash with lavender and magnolia.
As Radox products are generally of an exceptionally high quality I felt assured that I was buying an effective product. I was surprised to read on the rear label that Radox are owned by Sara Lee - didn't she make that beautiful chocolate gateau, which I can no longer find in the shops?
The appearance of the product is extremely appealing and looks very expensive. For our money we receive 300ml of the light purple/pink coloured hand wash, which is provided to us in a slightly opaque curved plastic container. The familiar green, white and silver logo of Radox is situated in the upper left corner and in the centre of the product we are provided with a calming image of a few sprigs of lavender. We are advised that this product is naturally caring for our hands, particularly as it has been dermatologically tested.
The main attraction of this product for me is the lavender fragrance, as I absolutely adore its' stunning aroma. I always associate it with peace and tranquillity and consequently, I will buy almost anything containing its' gorgeous fragrance, particularly as its' scent always assists me to relax and totally chill out.
The product is extremely easy to dispense via the fairly large push down pump, which releases a sufficient amount for your hands. The wash is of a fairly good consistency and smells simply delightful. I absolutely hate it when manufacturers inform us that their products contain lavender, yet they smell so artificial and somewhat sickly. I am pleased to report that the aroma of this product is totally natural and very calming. However, despite using this hand wash for over a month I still haven't made up my mind as to whether I can detect the magnolia, which isn't a negative for me, particularly as I made my purchase solely for its' lavender content.
The hand wash is very gentle on my hands, which is a definite for me, as this time of year I tend to suffer with cracked and sore skin on my knuckles and between my fingers. I can report that I did not experience any stinging, which brought me to the conclusion that this product is naturally caring as claimed by Radox.
The hand wash is extremely effective at removing all traces of grease and grime and a couple of days ago hubby asked me to count and bag up the contents of his coppers savings jar. An hour and £120 later my hands were absolutely stinking from handling all of his dirty money! One application from the dispenser was sufficient enough to remove all of the dirt from my hands and watch the filthy black water disappear down the plug hole! My hands were extremely soft after using the product and when I lifted them to my nose I could smell a delicate aroma of lavender, which was simply bliss.
Although Radox informs us that the wash contains added moisturisers I am unable to comment on the effectiveness, particularly as I always use a hand cream or lotion following each hand wash.
We are provided with a little information on the rear of the product, which advises that Radox have 100 years of know-how, that the product is effective and caring for the family and that it will assist in maintaining the skin's natural pH balance.
The empty container can be recycled once empty, but the pump must be removed and dispensed with normal household waste. This surprised me somewhat, particularly as I have never read this on any other soap or lotion dispenser.
Would I buy this again? Yes, most definitely, but only when it is on offer. I was able to obtain my current purchase for half price and would advise that at the time of writing (11 October 2010) you can buy any of the Radox hand washes at Boots for £1 each.
As this is such a great product it receives a full 5 stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
I am a big fan of handwash. I don't like soaps because you have to chase them round the washbasin, they fall in the sink, it's harder to find nice colours, they don't come in nice scents, they slip out of your hands and they go dried and cracked which looks horrible and they leave soap slime.
I used to love Carex but the way you'd get blue trails of liquid everywhere really began to put me off so I looked elsewhere. Radox handwashes, currently to be found in Boots for £1 for 300ml, are far superior.
The one I have currently, which is the Clean and Pamper Version, is a little bit different. The product is a stunning light purple with a hint of pink which is incredibly pretty and added to this, it is pearlescent which makes it shimmer slightly in your hand when you pump it out. Really pretty and would look lovely in a girly bathroom. As most bathrooms are white or blue, and most likely something men would steer clear of given the colour, this probably is one of their worst sellers in the range.
It is very latherable, not at all runny and smells really lovely which is probably the lavender which I know is very old fashioned but it makes the bathroom smell nice. The main thing I love about this however, is the way the push pump works. You can give it a tiny press and it'll squeeze out a tiny amount just enough to refresh your hands, two pumps for a really good handwash but one pump releases the perfect amount and because it is not runny it drops gently into your waiting hand rather than splashing down the basin and leaving a coloured residue, and unlike with other handwashes, it doesn't have that little bit extra that drips slowly down from the pump after you've gone or taken your hand away.
I really like this one and the others in the range and will continue to buy it.
Radox Clean & Pamper Handwash
Description: Brand: Radox / Type: Hand Wash
A 300ml bottle of this product cost me £1.62 from a local chemist but you can also find this brand in most supermarkets. I have bought it on special offer to save money in the past, but actually like it so much that I now pay full price for it - high praise indeed!
It comes in a clear plastic pump dispenser style bottle with the Radox logo in green on the front. This variety is Clean and Pamper Lavender and Magnolia. It is a bright pink colour and easy to spot, there are other scents available in the range but I haven't tried them yet.
This handwash has a lovely fruity scent with a hint of lavender. It smells almost good enough to eat, and is sweet and delicious.
A little bit of this handwash creates a good lather and as it is quite thick, it doesn't just slide off your hands as you are trying to rub them together. One of my biggest irritations with some cheap brands of hand wash is that because it is so thin, as soon as I have applied it and then moved my hands to rub them together and wash, the stuff slides off and lands in the sink! This is thick and creamy and allows you to easily scrub over both hands, and make sure that they are properly washed.
I have quite sensitive skin and never have any irritation or dry skin after using this handwash, in fact, my hands feel quite soft and moisturised and the scent lasts well on skin.
I will definitely keep buying this, I do try lots of other brands but find that I keep going back to this one as it is rich, creamy and has such a lovely scent. Yes it is a bit more expensive but sometimes it is worth paying more!
Once again I'm out around the shops looking for some new handwash for the bathrooms and kitchen. I do like to have a change from time to time. I really don't mind what smell as long as it is nice and I don't care about the colour either, my only demand is that it must be an anti-bacterial wash.
Now walking into Wilko's I can see a large display of handwashes, on getting closer I see that it is the Radox Clean and Refresh Range of Handwashes on special offer for £1.60 buy one get one free. Well thats a pretty good price as this comes in a good size bottle of 300ml.
I picked up the Clean and Pamper Lavender and Magnolia which is what I 'm going to review and the other one which was a Clean and Nourish which is is a creamy white colour with shea butter and ginger.
This comes in a plastic bottle with a pump action top ( this has an arrow on top pointing to which direction to open) with one twist you can get it pumping into your hand and you can also lock it back up if you wish, which might be handy if you have small kiddies about as they love to play with things like this!!
It is a rich deep pink colour with the Radox logo on the front and the words "Natural Antibacterial" which is good that was what I was looking for. There is a picture of some lavender and I think the other plant must be magnolia?
Now that it is open I'll have a quick squirt and see if it is any good, on wetting my hands here goes. It has a really strong lavender smell and is really quite pleasant ( I don't usually like a lavender smell as it always reminds me of old women, not that I know any old women that use lavender!!).It lathers up really well and is very soft and silky on the hands, on rinsing it off it has left a fresh smell of the lavender. The magnolia could be there, but I don't know what that smells like and seem to only be able to smell the lavender prehaps that is over powering it!!
This is a really good handwash and at only 80p a bottle it beats a lot of the value ones that are about. Radox have been around for about a 100years so I suppose they know how to get it right. This has added
moisturisers in it and help to mantain the skins natural ph balance. Once opened it will stay OK for 12 months not that it would last that long I hope ( someones not been washing their hands properly!!)
They also do this in a range of different fragrances such as;
~~~Clean and Nourish Shea Butter and Ginger~~~
~~~Clean and Refresh Lime and Coriander~~~
~~~Clean and Moisturise Chamomile and Jojoba Oil~~~
~~~Clean and Protect Thyme and Tea Tree Oil~~~
Also they do refills for these bottles which uses 75% less plastic per ml of product than the Radox handwash bottle. So I would recommend this handwash as not only does it give your hands a very good anti-bacterial wash, it leaves them soft, mosturised and pampered!!!
Hi everyone, as I am new to "Dooyoo" I picked this subject at random. I have used Radox Handwash before occassionally and admittedly very seldom bought it. This hand wash is very good at a price and although there are many on the market, I guess I have a lot of trying out to do.
Radox Clean and Pamper Handwash is very invigorating and like its other products does make me feel refreshed after a hard days work, if I don't have time to jump into the shower straight away. It is also a good refreshner while I am working and stop for a tea break.
As a gardener, handyman and former engineer, my hands often stiffen up quite a lot during the day with the bit of Rheumatism and/or Arthritis I may have.
I found that all the Radox products have loosened my joints up in the past and the Handwash make my hands feel fresh as well as easily cleaning them thoroughly.
Shopping in Sainsbury the other day I noticed that they had the entire andwash range from Radox on special offer at half pice so a 300ml bottle of hand wash only cost 80 pence so I boughtboth the Clean and Protect and also this one the Clean and Pamper Handwash which has Lavender and Magnolia in it.
Purple in colour it comes in a clear plastic pump action bottle with a nice large pump handle on the top of it which despite the size dispenses a relatively small amount of soap each time which is ideal for washing your hands with,
It is thick and lathers up really well, it is also quite kind to your hands and does not cause any irritation. What I like most is the fact that it has a lovely smell to it and you can really smell the Lavender essence in this product and also the magnolia as well and the two combine really well together.
I have been impressed with the product and actually plan to go back to Sainsbury tomorrow and stock up while it is on half price offer as at full price it does become a bit pricey.
~~RADOX CLEAN AND PAMPER NATURAL ANTIBACTERIAL HANDWASH WITH LAVENDER AND MAGNOLIA.~~
"Your hands deserve to be more than just clean, more than just protected, even. Your hardest working skin should be pampered and moisturised. Softened and protected. And it can be with our range of natural antibacterial hand washes".Well this is what they say but can they live up to expectation?
A good antibacterial hand wash has started to become one of those must have items in the bathroom as oppose to some of the harsher and less hygienic soap products on the market. When looking for a hand wash I am never too fussy when it comes to brand names, a reasonably priced hand wash and one that is kind to sensitive skin are my 2 essential requirements, provided of course i don't have to remorgage my house to afford a bottle then i am happy.
Having had on and off bouts of eczema on my hands for the past ten years you can imagine what a pain in the bottom it is (or should i say hand?) trying to find a product that doesn't irritate my sometimes already chapped and sore human paws and I am always a little concerned when trying out new products as a consequence, so when my fiancée brought home the Radox Clean and pamper hand wash, I was as reluctant to try as always.
* uses natural antibacterial ingredients which is effective yet gentle.
* Contains added moisturisers.
* Is dermatologically tested.
* Radox claims to have over 100 years of"know how".
The hand wash comes in a 300ml plastic bottle. The bottle is see through showing off the lovely purple shaded hand wash inside. The bottle has a push down applicator nozzle at the top.
Application is simple as with most products of its kind. Simply push down the nozzle in order to release the hand wash. Rub hands together and rinse.
You should expect to pay approx. between £1 and £2 for this product depending on where you shop.
~~MY OVERALL OPINION OF THE PRODUCT~~
The wash itself is thick and creamy to the touch and creates a lovely lather as you wash. The wash didn't cause any irritation to my extremely sensitive skin though it didn't help to keep the problem at bay either. The most impressive thing about this product is its absolutely exquisite scent; it really is one of the finest smells I have ever been had the pleasure of sniffing, 100% SNIFF 'A' LICOUS. Whilst the product states that the scent is both lavender and magnolia I'd say its more magnolia than anything else. The smell is really long lasting and you can always smell it on someone that has been using it as they waft passed you. It is by far the best hand wash of all Radox's hand washes range but there doesn't appear to be the same scent in any other of their products like shower gel or relaxing bathing foam which is a major disappointment because given the chance i would happily smell of its fine wholesome whiff from head to toe, in fact I would go as far to suggest that it would be an extremely popular perfume and one of which i'd happily squirt on my pillow to help me dose off and relax.
All in all Radox Clean and Pamper is a reasonably priced, beautifully scented and doesn't appear to irratate the skin and would happily recomend it as a worthy handwash to anyone.
~~ADDITIONAL PRODRUCT INFORMATION~~
To find out more about this product or any of Radox's other products you can visit Radox at:
I quite often suffer from dry skin on my hands and so usually buy Dove handwash because its known for its moisturising properties. However when I noticed Radox Clean and Pamper on offer in Tesco, I thought there was no harm in giving it a go.
Radox are well known for their bath and shower products which I have tried in the past, but I have never tried their range of hand washes. The handwash comes in a transparent bottle so you can see the handwash and see how much you have remaining, letting you to know in advance when you need to buy a new one. The handwash itself is a very girly lilac/pink (a plus if you're me, a negative if you're my hubby!) The bottle has a pump top like most handwashes which I personally had a bit of trouble getting to work at first (you have to twist it before you can use it) but that might just be me being a bit of a dunce. It states on the packaging that it will leave my hands feeling pampered and is pH balanced and dermatologically tested, which sounded great for my sensitive skin.
After figuring out the pump, I squeezed some of the handwash onto my hands. The lovely smell was the first thing I noticed, it smelt more like a shower gel than a handwash. It states on the package that it is fragranced with lavender and magnolia and as I'm not particularly a big fan of lavender I was surprised I found it so nice. I also found that the scent was quite long lasting; I could still smell it long after washing and drying my hands.
I found that it lathered up nicely and a small amount went a long way. It left my hands feeling and looking really clean, even removing a Biro ink mark without the need to scrub at them, very impressive!
The best thing about the handwash, in my opinion, was how soft it left my hands. Radox say that the magnolia will leave hands feeling soft and I have to say I agree. It wasn't necessarily any better than Dove but it was definitely as good. A lot of traditional soaps or handwashes leave my hands feeling dry and tight but this one didn't. My hands felt soft, supple and moisturised. The lovely smell was an added bonus!
As I bought this on offer in Tesco, buy one get free, I believe I got a bargain. They are £1.70 originally and I would probably purchase it again, regardless of whether it was on offer or not. There are other fragrances available in the Radox handwash range, but they'd have to be pretty special to tempt me away from this one.
- Lovely scent
- Left hands soft and supple
- Attractive packaging
- The pump confused me!
- Price and Packaging -
I have to admit that even prior to the 'credit crunch' I have always looked out for BOGOF offers on handwashes, toothpastes etc and this was one of my purchases.
This was priced at £1.49 at my local Morrisons a few weeks ago as a buy one get one free product so even though Wilkinsons are currently selling these at 99p, I bagged a bargain!!
Like many handwashes, the bottle is transparent plastic so that you can see how much is left and when to replenish.
It looks fine on the sink, no need to purchase a soap dispenser to disguise any cheap looking packaging. It is simple and understated which is fine by me!
The top of the bottle has a white opaque liquid dispenser which doesn't need to be plunged right down to the bottom as a little goes a long way. The nozzle also has an open and closed 'swizzle' option although I rarely use this as once it's open, it stays that way in my bathroom.
- What do the manufacturer's say about this product? -
~ Contains natural magnolia essence to help soften your hands.
~ Has a lovely fresh smell due to the sprigs of lavender.
~ A perfect pH balance.
~ A natural blend of herbs and minerals.
- My Experience -
Appearance ~ This is a lilac colour with a rich texture to it when it is dispensed.
Does it lather up? ~ Yes it does, a little goes a long way so no need to go mad with the plunger!
Do my hands feel dry after using it? ~ This liquid soap thoroughly cleans my hands, however at times, particularly in this cold weather, I have noticed that it doesn't offer my hands a moisturising element.
Smell ~ This is the major advantage for me with this handwash. I can't actually smell the lavender but it does remind me of a very subtle rose aroma which pleasantly stays on your hands for some time after using it.
General ~ Like all of the other dispenser style handwashes that I have used, when you get to the bottom of the container you can't get it all out so there is quite a bit of waste, unless like me you turn it upside down and pour the remains into your next supply, if you one!
- Other Radox hand washes -
~ Clean and soften
~ Clean and refresh
~ Clean and protect
~ Clean and moisturise
~ Clean and nourish
- Final Thoughts -
~ A lovely smell
~ Good lather
~ Much more attractive than a bar of soap on your sink, cleaner & tidier
~ Reasonable price with the BOGOF offer!
~ The bottle can be recycled.
~ Level of waste at the bottom of the bottle
~ Doesn't offer a moisturising element for my skin.
