I regularly buy liquid handwash for use in both the kitchen and bathroom in my home. I have recently purchased two bottles of Handwash from the Radox brand, with this review discussing my thoughts about the "Radox Eastern Spirit Handwash."
I paid around £1 for my bottle of Radox Handwash, which is 300ml in size. I thought that this price represented good value for money, although this price was a promotional offer and the product usually costs nearer £2. I purchased my bottles from Tesco, but you can also buy from good drugstores.
The packaging is fairly attractive, but it is quite simplistic, I think. The bottle is made of sturdy, clear plastic, which allows the bright orange/peach coloured liquid to be seen quite clearly inside. The bottle has something of a 'chunky' design to it, as does the 'pump' dispenser inside the bottle which is quite large.
The Eastern Spirit Handwash has a very nice texture to it, and I like how it smoothens over the skin easily. A little warm water will gently 'agitate' the soap to allow a soft lather to be created quite easily. This feels soft and gentle on the skin, without any tackiness or stickiness being observed.
After rinsing, I find that my hands are left spotlessly clean, and free from any dirt or grime that may have been present beforehand. I do feel that this product performs as well as other handwash products, in this regard.
The product's overall fragrance is probably what I would describe as being "quietly floral" with the soft, floral notes feeling quite subdued, yet refreshing.
I do feel that the scent is rather more 'feminine' than most of the other handwash products that I buy regularly, but not to the extent that it is completely unsuitable for my husband to use at home. True, it is probably more 'girly' in its fragrance than some of the other liquid soaps that I buy on a regular basis, but I do still feel that the product is suitable for use by the whole household.
After using the Radox Handwash to cleanse my hands, I find that the delicate sweetness within the product's floral aroma is keen to hang around on the skin for a short while afterwards. I don't feel that the scent is 'intrusive' in any way, nor could I say that I have found it is over-bearing or 'heady' after the product has been used.
As with all other products from the Radox brand that I've purchased before, my sensitive skin has suffered from no irritation or aggravation during or after use of the Eastern Spirit Handwash. Based on these results, I do recommend it as being entirely suitable for those consumers who suffer with sensitive skin.
Taking everything into account, I do recommend the Radox Eastern Spirit Handwash and I would buy it again in the future, though probably only if it was available at a discounted price.
Before now, although I have had other Radox products, I have never tried any of their handwashes before. But, recently, I found a bottle of the Limited Edition Eastern Spirit handwash for only £1 in Sainsbury's.
Generally, this handwash sells for roughly £1.90 so I got my bottle for nearly half price which was a great deal.
The handwash comes in a really nice looking bottle when comparing it to other handwashes that cost roughly the same price. The bottle is made from clear plastic but it has a curved shape to it which makes it look nice. The front of the bottle has pictures of lotus flowers, orange blossom and an oriental scene which helps to explain the theme and ingredients of the product. There is also the Radox logo in the top left hand corner but it doesn't take anything away from the nice design.
As the bottle is clear, you can see the lovely pink handwash inside. While more pink than anything else, the colour of the liquid also has a slight peach/ orange tint to it which makes it look a little less girly. The colour of the handwash makes this product look very appealing in the bottle and it really made me want to use it.
In order to use this handwash, you need to push down on the white lid which will dispense a small amount of liquid. I find the amount dispensed is just enough to wash your hands if they're not especially dirty but a little more will be needed if your hands are covered in mud, dirt or something similar. With one pump of the liquid you will be able to get a nice lather once rubbed together in your hands and mixed with warm water.
After using this product, my hands feel incredibly soft and smooth. Not only do my hands feel great afterwards but I also really liked the scent of the liquid while using it. As this product has lotus flowers and orange blossom as part of the main ingredients, the scent is quite sweet but not overpowering at all. It also isn't especially feminine which is good if you have men in the house like I do.
Even at the full price of £1.90, I would definitely buy this handwash again. It smells amazing and it makes my hands feel great. My skin has been softer and smoother than usual since using this product which is why I would buy it again.
Radox Eastern Spirit Hand Wash - Limited Edition.
With oriental lotus flower and orange blossom.
Clear pump action bottle has a colourful image of eastern temples and flowers on the front with the green and white Radox logo.
'A delicate and fragrant of oriental lotus flower and orange blossom to rejuvenate and cleanse your hands. Protected by nature.'
'Experts in Blending.'
Made by Unilever.
The liquid itself is reasonably think and has a sheeny opaque quality and is a peachy pink colour.
Full price £1.99 but I bought for £1 in our local chemist and it is for sale at 97p on the Superdrug website.
'Soften your hands, with our Limited Edition oriental lotus flower and orange blossom hand wash.'
Most of us tend to use these pump hand washes these day, and so I thought I was getting a bargain when I picked up this bottle of Radox hand wash for £1 in my chemist. It is a very pretty colour with an attractive flower on the front. I also half recognised the name 'Eastern Promise' - but it was only when I got home I recalled where form - I had had the bath gel of the same name - and not been very impressed with it! Also I bought it without reading the small print on the bottle so it was also not anti bacterial - which is what I always like in a hand wash - so it was not a good start.
For me the nicest thing about this hand wash is the colour and consistency. It is a reasonably product to use. Personally I am not keen on the aroma which to me does not smell of anything in particular and is not very strong or long lasting wither.
I do not find it particularly drying for my hands but on the other hand it is not moisturising either.
A very non-descript product that I will use up for the sake of it but not one I will bother buying again. I would put up with it not being antibacterial if it was a lovely aroma but for me this one lets itself down in too many ways. Some people seem to like this Limited Edition fragrance but its not for me.
I am not sure how long a 'Limited Edition' is on sale for because this one has been going for at least a couple of years.
I would have expected a better product from a company like Radox and if I did not know who had made it I would have expected it to be some horrid and cheap product.

Bring the spirit of the East to your hands with this beautiful hand wash from Radox.
I was so excited when I saw a bottle of this hand wash that I had to buy two to make sure we don't run out for a while as it says on the bottle that it's a Limited Edition hand wash. I have tried this scent in a few different forms, the Radox shower gel and the Radox bath soak and it's just as wonderful and amazing in a hand wash too.
Radox say that their Eastern Spirit shower therapy gel will rejuvenate and cleanse your hands with the beautiful smell inspired by the Orient with a combination of delicate Lotus Flower and the oil of orange blossom to help soften the skin. The hand wash comes in a nice plastic bottle with a pretty picture of orange blossoms and lotus flowers on the front to really show you that it is a fruity/floral fragrance. The bottle has a white plastic pump action at the top so it's very easy to get the wash out and onto your hands for cleaning. What I like is that the lever moves from side to side to open and close so as I have this in my downstairs bathroom I tend to close it after I have done so my kids don't get to it and squeeze it all out for fun!
The smell is definitely very fruity and you can definitely smell the orange blossom but it is not overly circusy so I think the lotus flower maybe calms down the orange flavour a bit which is nice. The hand wash is a lovely bright pink colour and is definitely lovely and fragrant. It is in the form of a nice thick gel and it lathers up really well on my hands and does make them smell nice and fresh and well washed. Afterwards my hands smell really nice and fruity for quite a while which I really like and they definitely feel very clean too.
The hand wash comes in a 300ml bottle and when I bought them they were on special in Tesco's for only £.90 which I think is a great price.
A lovely exotic way to wash your hands.
Hand wash: it's not a very exciting subject but we all have to use it. Like most people, I tend to buy whatever is on offer, although I usually favour Radox because when most hand washes are on offer costing £1, the Radox ones offer 300ml instead of the usual 250ml of its competitors.
I chose this particular fragrance because despite its title, I thought it had quite a feminine look to it. It's orangey red in colour, almost coral coloured, with pictures of flowers on the front. For some reason I jumped to conclusions that this would be a feminine fragrance, but in actual fact it's more masculine scented. It smells quite herby in my opinion, with a hint of spice, and I would liken it to men's aftershave. It's certainly not my favourite of the Radox range.
The pump dispenser is a typical design for most hand washes, and this one is no different. I sometimes find the Radox pump dispensers can fail and with this one I noticed it was almost like the pump was resisting, so I had to press really hard to dispense the hand wash. This got a bit tiresome after a while, so anyone with arthritis or similar problems may struggle with the Radox pump dispensers.
The hand wash itself is quite average in terms of luxury and performance. It feels reasonably thick, but as I could only manage to dispense a tiny bit without fighting with the dispenser, it didn't really create anything luxurious in terms of a creamy lather. I found because of this, there have been times when I've washed my hands after applying make-up, and it hasn't done a very good job, resulting in make-up stains all over the cream towels and lots of tutting from my husband.
The scent doesn't linger for long after using the hand wash, although this isn't a bad thing necessarily as I'm not a huge fan of the scent. I can't say I've noticed any difference in the condition of my hands as a result of using this, as they are quite dry at the moment due to the bad weather, so I've been using hand cream regularly to help retain moisture.
In summary, I would probably buy this again if it was the best value out of the hand washes on offer, but I'd much prefer to choose another fragrance or even brand if money was no object. Three stars.

I always have a hand wash in our bathroom as my daughter is 5 years old and of course I want her to wash her hands after using the toilet but don't want her messing about with bars of soap. I pretty much stick with Carex and Radox and buy them when they are on offer as I think they are about as good as each other.
The hand wash we are using at the moment is the Radox Eastern Spirit which comes in a see through plastic bottle with a white pump top on it. On the front of the bottle there are some pictures of pink and white flowers and you can see a thick creamy pink liquid inside the bottle.
To use the handwash like most you simply turn the pump to the on position and then I leave the bottle open to make it easy for my daughter to use by herself. One pump of soap is enough to wash adult hands well as long as your hands are properly wet and the smell of the soap is gorgeous in my opinion. The soap smells really sweet and very fruity and I think it is really nice but I would expect some people may find it too sickly.
The soap lathers up really well and is easy to rinse from your hands too, my hands feel really soft and smelling great and the smell lasts nicely on your hands too.
A bottle of this hand wash costs about £1.50 but I always wait for it to go on offer and it often goes on offer at £1 which is when I buy it let's face it there is no reason to spend anymore. I would say that this is one of my favourite hand washes it smells great and feels really luxurious too.
I cant say im loyal to any particular brands of handwash, I tend to have a look at whats on offer - but I like to go for pretty bottles, bright colours and/or nice smelling ones. I prefer handwashes that dispense from a bottle rather than soaps, as I find soaps tend to dry out my hands, and just generally make a mess of my sink.
I purchased this one as I saw it in my local pound shop for the bargain price of - thats right - £1. Although I think it usually retails for around £1.98 in regular shops so it isnt too expensive to purchase normally.
This one caught my eye as the liquid inside is a bright peachy orangy colour. On the front of the bottle is a picture of a lotus flower and an orange slice which is what the handwash claims to smell like. I have no idea what a lotus flower usually smells like, but this handwash smells very citrus-y, which is probably the orange, and has an oriental fragranty scent to it which must be the lotus flower. The consistancy is quite thick and you dont need much to get a nice lather on your hands. I find that the smell tends to linger on my hands for quite a while aswell which is nice as I quite like the refreshing scent of this handwash.
I havent found that it irritates my skin at all, or dry it out - infact it tends to make them feel quite soft as though I have moisturise them.
Overall I would defintiely recommend this, it smells lovely and it leaves your hands feeling clean and soft and smelling all fragrant. Definitely one I will buy again!
While staying with my parents recently I was using their Radox Eastern Spirit Hand Wash several times a day for two weeks.
- The Packaging -
The bottle is made from clear plastic with a pump to dispense the soap. The pump is easy to use and dispenses a good amount of liquid. The label displays the Radox logo and has a picture of a flower. It claims to "soften your hands with oriental lotus flower & orange blossom". The packaging is ok but quite unexciting. However, I'm sure you would have to spend more to get a fancier bottle.
- The Soap -
The liquid is thick and peachy pink in colour. You can see the liquid through the bottle and to be honest it isn't a colour I would choose as it is a little garish for my taste. The liquid smells nice with a sweet fruity floral scent. The soap lathered up well and feels like a good quality product. I did not experience any skin complaints after using this soap on a regular basis for two weeks so I would assume it is kind to skin.
- Price and Availability -
I can see that this hand wash is available in most supermarkets and currently sells for around £1.28 for 300ml. At the moment it seems to be on offer in Asda, Sainsbury's and Tesco at £1 or under. I think this is a good price as I would be unlikely to pay more than £1 for a hand wash like this.
- Would I Recommend? -
Overall I think this is a good quality hand soap but the packaging could be better and I didn't like the colour of the soap. If I was to purchase a Radox hand soap myself I would definitely go for another flavour/colour. I would recommend Radox hand soaps in general, but perhaps another one in the range.
We always use liquid soap in my house & I usually buy whichever soap is on offer. This soap was on offer in Tesco last time I did my 'big shop' so I picked up 3 bottles for the bathroom, en suite & downstairs wc.
The bottle sits tidily on the bathroom sink & doesnt take up too much space. The design on the front is quite pretty too, not plain & boring like some of the cheaper brands I've previously purchased.
When pressing the nozzle, a good amount of soap comes out. It's plenty for me to wash my hands but was a bit too much for my 3 year olds hands. The soap smelt lovely, very sweet smelling but not too sicky sweet.
The fragrance did last on my hands for a short while after washing.
Some soaps I find I have to rinse a few times as they sometimes leave a residue but this soap rinsed away quite quickly & just left my hands feeling clean & soft.
I would recommend this product & would even consider buying it at full price.
We almost always use liquid soap these days as the liquid soap keeps housework down because my sinks don't get that seemingly rock hard build up that appears over night in our house.
On our most recent shop I spotted this Radox Limited Edition Eastern Spirit liquid soap in Tesco at 94p for 300mls (half price from £1.88) and being fed up with our usual cheapest of the cheap value brands I put it in the basket. Radox is a brand I haven't used since I was a teenager and was sucked in by the adverts claiming the bright blue strong bath crystals were the height of luxury. I quickly found that although the water felt and smelt nice it couldn't half make your bits itch. So I was slightly dubious about this purchase, but the reasonable price and lovely scent that I could detect even through the packaging tempted me.
As this says it is a limited edition I'm not sure how much longer this scent will be available, but there did seem to be a decent amount of choice in the selection of perfume in this hand wash. So if you like the wash then there will probably be something nice to fall back on.
The bottle is a nice solid shape with attractively rounded shoulders and you can see the soft pink liquid quite clearly through the translucent bottle, which is great for knowing when you're about to run out. It's a sturdy bottle and sits quite nicely on my sink. The pump seems to dispense a decent amount of liquid with one press, though it can be a little too much for smaller hands.
The smell is a little sweeter than I was expecting but lovely none the less with a satisfying floral component which does have a slightly exotic edge to it. The bottle says it is 'oriental lotus flower and orange blossom'; it contains oil of orange blossom which is meant to be softening on the skin. The scent does linger on the skin for a little while afterwards and I like this, it makes me smile when I get a hint of it as I go about my chores etc.
My niece loves the scent of this too, I found her in the bathroom recently with the sink full of bubbles and a few of her 'Bratz' dolls having a spa break using my liquid soap. I can't say it did dollies hair any favours, but they did smell nice for a while afterwards.
The wash feels like a rich gel when dispensed and works up into a nice soft lather. This gets your hands sparkling clean removing stubborn muck quite easily. I love gardening and am also like a three year old when I get my hands on a biro and get more ink on myself than the paper. This removes it all gently and effectively, and washes away well leaving no residue on the skin.
I haven't noticed any excess dryness to my skin while using this, nor has the rest of the family who all seem to like this a lot. The bottle states that this is dermatologically tested, and helps to maintain the ph balance of the skin.
The plastic container is recyclable.
I really like this liquid soap and when mine runs out if this edition is still available I will buy it again, in fact I may buy a few so I get the pleasure of using it for a little while even if it does disappear from the shelves.
When it comes to buying hand washes I tend to just buy most that are either cheap or on offer, this one was one I bought on offer some time ago and is the one I am using at the moment in my household.
It comes housed in a clear plastic bottle and it has a pump dispenser. The liquid inside is a nice pink colour. It has a really nice fresh smell to it and one that smells of fresh flowers. It has a really nice scent to it and one that remains on the hands for a while after washing them. It contains Lotus flower with the oil of orange blossom. A really nice smelling hand soap.
The liquid has a rich consistency and it does not drip from the bottle when pumping it onto the hands. I find it washes the hands very well and it feels soft on the hands too. It has not irritated any of my family members skin at all. It does feel soft too while washing. It is very easy to rinse from the hands with no problems and in no time at all.
It has a soft texture and one that is extremely smooth. It removes all traces of dirt from the hand very quickly because it is a good quality hand soap. Just a couple of pumps is all that is needed on the hands for this one to wash them very well indeed. There is certainly no waste with this soap and a little goes a very long way. It looks really nice in the bathroom too, although I do not really mind what a soap looks like but my wife does and this one looks nice on the basin in our bathroom.
It does not dry the skin and it just leaves the hands feeling nice and soft. I do not mind if it moisturises the skin to be honest but my wife does and she finds that it has left he skin feeling moisturised in the way she likes them to feel. It is a good family soap and worth the price. It is extremely good value for money too.
It creates lots of bubbles and foams really well indeed and for a 300ml bottle I paid just £3 for 3 bottles on offer from Asda. This price is a good one because I have more than one toilet and so this price offer is super for my home to save money. I do recommend this one to anyone looking for a good branded hand wash. I would most certainly buy it again because it is a good, suitable soap for all the family to use. Radox is a very good brand and they product lots of good quality products and this one is also a nice one to their collection.
I rate it 5 stars.
When we moved into our house we decided to put a toilet in the downstairs utility room but, due to lack of size the hand basin had to be quite small. There are no dents on which to put a bar of soap and no room for a soap dish so we always use pump action liquid hand wash in there and we are always on the lookout for special offers as we don't want to spend a fortune on it!
I recently noticed one in Boots called Radox Limited Edition Eastern Spirit and, since I had received shower gel in this fragrance last Christmas which I had loved, I decided to try the handwash. It was supposed to be £1.99 for 300ml but all the Radox handwashes have been on offer at just £1 for ages now. There are lots of different fragrances in the range so I am sure that you would be able to find at least one that you liked.
The handwash comes in a smart, translucent, plastic container with a picture of a lotus flower on the front. You can see the pink liquid inside so that you know when the level is getting low and you need to be thinking about purchasing a new one. The base of the container is wide, but not too large so it is stable when it stands on the edge of the sink even when I am pressing down the nozzle.
To use the handwash all you have to do is press the pump down whilst holding your free hand under the nozzle. One push of the pump will dispense enough handwash for you to be able to wash your hands effectively.
This handwash smells lovely with a sweet flowery sort of fragrance -according to the writing on the front of the container the smell is oriental lotus flower and orange blossom. It lathers up very well and my hands always feel clean and fragrant and the lovely smell lingers in the air for a while too.
The blurb on the back of the container tells us that this has been dermatologically tested and will help to maintain the skin's Ph balance. There is also the usual warning that, if you do get any in your eyes, you should just wash it out with clear water immediately.
As we have a log burner I can often be found chopping and sawing wood so I can get very dirty but Radox handwash always manages to leave my hands lovely and clean.
Since the container is completely made from plastic - once it is empty it just goes into the plastic recycling bag so that's great as well as far as I am concerned.
In conclusion I would definitely recommend this handwash for £1! It smells lovely, it works well and it looks good on the side of the sink too.
This was another one of the handwashes that my mum had got at the supermarket for a reduced price of 50p. Radox is not a company that I am very familiar with and I haven't used many of their products but this was one that I thought would be quite good after reading the packaging.
The handwash is in a pump action container and so is easily dispensed. It is easy to get the handwash out even when there isn't very much left. The handwash is a gel like consistency rather than the creamy one reviewed earlier (radox nourish shea butter and ginger). It is a light red colour (almost pink) and there is an instant smell of jasmine but when rubbed into the skin and rubbed it leaves a really weird smell behind. It smells like loose tea. Although the smell doesn't last for very long I was disappointed because I was expecting it to smell much better than the shea butter one but it wasn't.
The handwash is good at cleansing and refreshing the hands but the gel consistency and the colour made me think that my hands where going to be sticky. The gel doesn't really lather that much but it does wash off quite well.
The handwash is a limited addition and as such I think it is only around for a while. I personally didn't like the smell of the product and I didn't think that it did a good job in terms of moisturising my hands. It was drying even though it was cleansing. It does do the main job of cleansing but it doesn't have any anti-bacterial properties so it isn't one to keep in the bathroom. For 50p it is an OK handwash but I definitely wouldn't say that it was to the same standard as carex or other handwashes in the radox range.
The handwash is available at all major supermarkets and also high street chemists. I wouldn't recommend this handwash because I don't like the fell of the handwash, and it smells rather rotten. It is cheap and widely available though.
When it comes to buying handwash for my bathroom I'm not overly fussy on what type I buy, for me the main thing is it smells nice and that it is on offer. Recently when buying some handwash at my local Tesco I noticed that Radox was on offer, I have used this brand before and have always been pleased with it, I noticed that this time they had a limited edition one call Eastern Spirit, I decided to give this a try as it was a bit different to what I usually buy.
The Radox Eastern Spirit handwash comes in rounded rectangle shaped bottle which is made from clear plastic allowing you to see the hand wash inside. The label on the front of the bottle is also clear, it has the Radox logo in the corner which consists of a dark green oval and the word "Radox" written in the middle of it in white, just underneath this is the word Limited Edition in silver writing. In the middle of the label is the fragrance of the hand wash with the words "Eastern Spirit Hand wash" written in black writing. Just beneath this is a small sentence about then hand wash describing the fragrance to you. Across the bottom of the label is a small picture of a building which looks like it could be in and Eastern country with a large lotus flower next to it. There is a second clear label on the back of the bottle, this contains further information about the hand wash along with the ingredients. this is all written in white writing which stands out against the colour of the hand wash inside the bottle. There is a white plastic pump on top of the bottle which simply pushes down to release the hand wash inside.
The eastern Spirit hand wash is descried as being inspired by the orient and combines orange oil with Lotus flower which softens the hands meaning it is caring for your hands. The hand wash is described as having the following features
*Perfect Ph balance
*Contains added moisturisers
*Effective and caring for the whole family
The Eastern Spirit handwash is a pinky orange colour and has a thick and creamy appearance to it through the clear plastic of the bottle giving the impression that it is going to lather up into soft bubbles that will really moisturise your hands, however the real test was going to be when I used it.
When I first used the Radox handwash I used 2 pumps as I thought this would be plenty to clean my hands with. As I lathered up the handwash in my hands I could smell the slightly floral yet sweet fragrance, it was nothing like I imagined it to be, I thought that with it containing Lotus flower and orange oil that I would definitely be able to detect the orange and also that the floral aspect of it would be quite strong, however this was not the case. I cannot really describe the smell of this handwash, it certainly had a floral smell to it, although this was not as strong as I thought it would be, this was also mixed with a slightly sweet fragrance. I thought the handwash would remind me of eastern countries and have quite an exotic fragrance, it was quite the opposite, it didn't particularly remind me of eastern countries and the fragrance was quite soft and delicate, certainly not over powering at all, however I did really like the sweet floral smell it had.
The lather felt rich and creamy in my hands and 2 pumps was plenty to wash my hands with, I probably could have got away with one. After I had washed my hands they felt lovely and soft, the handwash had not dried them out at all, I could also smell the fragrance of the handwash on my skin for some time afterwards leaving them feeling clean and fresh.
I have almost used my bottle of Radox Eastern Spirit, we do go through quite a lot of handwash, however I have found it to be long lasting, only needing a couple of pumps at a time means that the handwash has lasted a lot longer than other brands we have tried. The product as I have said is very gentle on the skin and would be suitable for the whole family.
As I have mentioned I brought my Radox handwash from Tesco, when I purchased it it was on offer with a 300ml bottle costing just £1.00, which personally I feel is very good value for money. As this is a limited edition I am not sure how long it will be available for, but it is currently very reasonably priced and well worth the money.
I would definitely recommend Radox Eastern Spirit handwash, it has a lovely delicate fragrance which lingers on your skin for some time after use. The product is gentle on your skin making it ideal for the whole family not to mention the cheap price it is being sold at. If this product is still available next time I purchase some handwash I would certainly consider Radox Eastern Spirit.
We were having a family gathering about a month ago, and knowing that our bathroom would be in usage a lot by our visitors, I wanted a nice looking and nice smelling handwash. Around that time Tesco had their radox handwash products on offer, and I noticed this, supposedly limited edition, Radox Eastern Spirit Handwash was part of the offer. The offer is no longer on, but you can pick up a 300ml pump for £1.90 in Tesco, which I think it pretty pricey at full price, and certainly not something I would pay for any handwash.
Anyhow, as much as it sounds particularly shallow on my part, I was attracted to this handwash, not only because it was new and different but also because I loved the colour that came through the bottle, and I thought it would look quite luxurious and pretty at the bathroom sink. Like most people, Radox is a familiar brand and I have had previous good experiences with their handwash, so I was confident that the quality of this product would be as good as the others in the handwash range.
This Radox Eastern Spirit contains 'oriental lotus flower and orange blossum' and on the front of the bottle, there are the usual Eastern temple images to catch your attention and transport you to a foreign country. Both of these ingredients have been used in order to soften the hands, as well as offering a sweet frtuiy smell that will linger for a little while on your hands, but not for hours on end.
Alongside the properties of these ingredients, Radox also claims that this handwash has a perfect ph balance, contains added moisturisers, is ideal at caring for the whole family's skin and is dermatologically tested.
As I said at the beginning of this review, I bought this in mind for putting in our bathroom when we having a family gathering a while ago, and it certainly seemed to do the trick, in that several people commented how sweet smelling it was, and that they had never seen that particular product previously. The handwash is still going strong in our bathroom, and I do think it helps keep my hands soft, as recently, albeit with slightly warmer weather, I haven't needed to put on any moisturiser on my hands as night. I also have fairly sensitive skin and I have noticed no adverse reactions to this handwash.
All in all, at the full price of £1.90, I certainly would never consider buying this, not because there is anything wrong with it, but because I think it is far too much to pay for any handwash on the market. At an offer price, well that is a different story, and if the 'limited edition' continues into another Tesco offer, I would certainly buy more of this handwash.
