“ Brand: Radox / Type: Soap „
I?ve never been keen on bars of soap in the bathroom, the mess it makes when the soap is placed on the sink is horrible, it looks unsightly and in my opinion is not quite as hygienic as liquid soaps seem to be, the thought of washing someone else?s germs over my hands doesn?t float my boat I?m afraid. As a result for some years now I have tended to favour the liquid soap version, even though it is a bit more expensive, but I tend to buy when they are on offer, usually BOGOF (buy one get one free), so it usually evens itself out. These days I don?t really stick to any particular brand, as they all seem quite good and just as effective but I do happen to like the smell of the Radox Hand wash Wheat germ Oil and Vitamin E variety. Radox do quite a wide range of these supersoaps including Refreshing Lemon (Yellow label), Spring Refresh (Green label), Cleansing Touch (Blue label), I could go on about the many different varieties on offer but I won?t let?s just say there are a few to suit every taste. They all come packaged in a plain white pump dispenser but the different varieties have different coloured labels with images to match the scent, the one in particular I am reviewing is Wheat germ oil and Vitamin E, the label is a beige colour and has images of wheat, along with of course the easily recognisable Radox logo. The scent of this particular liquid soap is delightful, you can smell the faint addition of the Vitamin E moisturiser along with the wheat smell, but overall probably more wheat than anything else, it's very fresh and certainly not overpowering but enough to make you feel clean and refreshed, the added moisturisers is a great addition as you don?t always have time to think about hand cream, but all we like to have soft cleansed hands, giving that overall cared for feeling. It?s very easy to use, simply follow the instructions on the lid and turn the pump to open and simply push down facing away from you is a
good idea and be careful not to press too hard as the last thing you want is squirts of soap over your clothing, a soft half pump will produce a small amount of this rich creamy fluid which is just enough to clean your hands. Simply add a little water rubbing your hands together to form a lather, then rinse off again, dry hands and away you go with clean, fresh and moisturised hands. The scent from the soap itself does linger for a good while afterwards, probably about an hour or so and on a few occasions my guests have commented on how the soap makes the bathroom smell nice following use. You can usually pick up a 300ml size from most places these days from the supermarkets to the corner shops, the average cost is around £1.89 each, but as I said they are quite often on offer, especially at Boots, so if you are considering trying it out, shop about for the offers. In all the time I have been using Radox, I have never experienced any reaction but that is probably down to the fact that their products are pH balanced and dermatologically tested, but it?s best to be on the safe side, test a little on a patch of your skin first of all before using it on your hands or face. Sara Lee makes it and should you have any queries their contact address is: H&BC UK, Slough, SL1 4AU If you like the sound of this, I would definitely recommend trying it out, I doubt that you will be disappointed. Thanks for reading, take care, Heather :o)
One day around a year ago my Mum asked me if I had tried Radox Supersoap yet. My little ears pricked up at the word RADOX (yes I am receiving help now for my addiction) and a panic stricken "Oh my gawd theres one out there I have yet to try" thought flashed rapidly across my cerebral synapses! Clearly taking pity on my stunned look she let me try some of hers and it was love at first sniff. Practical as ever my Mother then pointed out to me that in John Lewis its only 99 pence a bottle. What more could I say? Sold to the woman with the Radox fetish (ahem). ~ THE BOTTLE ~ The bottle is rectangular in shape as opposed to the myriad of liquid soap bottles out there which are either a flat style or rounded. Predominently white with a yellow label and yellow pump this product is very easily identifiable when on a retailers shelves. The lid/pump is, as far as I am aware, unique to Radox. Unlike all the liquid soaps and cleansers I have so far tried this one can be turned "on" and "off" with a simple half turn of the top. With a lot of these types of pump action dispensers they do have the ability to be closed but to do so you have to push down on the top of the pump and twist. This means that you end up squirting gloop all over the sink whenever you want to seal the bottle shut which tends to render the process messy, time consuming and very off-putting. Radox, bless their hearts, have cured this once and for all by having a very simple system whereby a half turn to the left or right turns the pump action on and off. No pushing down, no trying to twist at the same time, no cursing! A half turn is all that is needed and a tiny "click" is audible when youve hit home so to speak. The directions for turning are embossed on the top of the pump lid but you have to look closely and know that they are there. Needless to say I have forgotten to tell the kids yet so this still befuddles them; but a
t least this super soap isnt going to waste. ~ THE SOAP ~ So now weve figured out how to get the stuff out of the bottle, whats it like? Well, its a wonderfully thick clear liquid with a very vague yellow tinge. It looks very yellow when you pump it out but thats because it is picking up the colour of the pump nozzle. Very little is needed to "do the job" as it is so luxuriously proportioned; is it just me or do most people judge quality of a product such as this on its gloopiness? As its Radox it of course has the "secret blend of herbs and spices" not that you can ever smell them. This is the refreshing version so rather predictably it contains LEMON OIL but also LAVENDER. Odd combination you may think, as did I when I first read the label. Strange but true and whats more remarkable is that it is a combination that works from my point of view. My nasal passages pick up first on the lavender scent with the lemon coming in a close second. The scent is reasonably strong but not over-powering. Radox claim it will mask even stubborn odours like fish, garlic and onion. I cant vouch for how it copes with fish but it does not only mask onion and garlic but it appears to eliminate those particularly powerful whiffs from my hands as after using this soap they never seem to come back again. It is also a good food stain remover as Radox state it is and it has coped admirably with beetroot and carrot amongst others. Of course you expect soap to remove stains but I find that when it comes those in a liquid form some are distinctly poor in this performance area. For those of you with dry skin like mine you will be pleased to know that this contains added MOISTURISERS which I have find my hands feeling lovely and soft after each usage. ~ In SUMMARY ~ Designed I assume primarily for use in the kitchen I find it to be a good all round cleanser and I have one positioned by the ki
tchen sink and another in the bathroom. The bottle contains 300mls of Supersoap which given the paltry sum of ninety-nine pence I paid makes it beyond great value for money. Should you be tempted to purchase some of this for yourself I caution you to shop around. This extra low price is the cheapest I have seen it anywhere; Wilkos ask around £1.40 and Ive seen it at the extortionate price of £2.20 in Safeways. In my humble opinion this is the best Hand Wash I have found and it certainly beats a lot of the available competition not only on price but on scent and longevity; in other words a little goes a long way which means you get even more product effectively for your money. Another sure fire winner from those guys at Radox but I am thinking you would have to like lavender to fully appreciate it!
Now I know you clicked on this op to rate it Not Useful but did you know that Sara Lee is the company that makes Radox??? I was very surprised myself. Lets hope they never mix up the products - foamy chocolate cake just isn?t appealing (unless of course you haven?t had any for oohh about an hour) ahem I digress!! Radox has some along way from selling the good old fashioned pine smelling bath salts - now offering a range of products including bath, shower and soap products. It really is a brand that is well known and very very good (well I think so anyway!!) Supersoap is a new product in our house. I have always used ordinary soap, but to be honest I was getting a bit fed up with the soap getting all gooey and having it fly across the kitchen every time I picked it up. I have tried Cutex antibacterial liquid soap but that just gave me dermatitis. So Sainsbury's have this on offer at the moment - buy one get one free - £1.89 each, so I bought some. The bottle is quite cute and stubby holding 300ml with a good-sized top that dispenses just the right amount of soap. The soap is a blend of tea tree oil and extract of thyme and it also contains moisturisers and antibacterial agents. The soap is clear blue in colour and is quite runny. When you rub it into your hands it doesn?t produce much of a lather but it does clean (most important when you have being playing with worms all afternoon - children!!). The smell is pleasant - very clean smelling with the tea tree oil playing a large part in the scent. The scent is also quite strong and remains on your hands for a long time - I could find this off putting for preparing food but I don?t think the smell has been transferred yet (sticking raw chicken under my nose for a good sniff is taking this business a bit too far!!). Although it says that it contains added moisturisers I can?t say that I have noticed a marked improvement in the softness of my hands. But i
t hasn?t dried them out - which is more important as when my hands become dry dermatitis sets in. Overall this is a good soap to keep by the kitchen sink. The bottle has a good design for dispensing the soap and the antibacterial agents help keep the germs at bay. I don?t think I would use it for the kid?s hand as it does seem to be quite harsh - the label states that if the soap gets in your eyes to wash out immediately, but for daily use for me it is very good. The bottle lasts for ages as well - my current bottle is two thirds full and I have been using it for about 10 days, so it seems good value for money too. thanks for reading
After the men in the house protested too much about the ‘girlie’ smelling liquid soap I was buying, I have finally found a brand they approve of – Radox. We have used two different types of the Radox liquid soap, so instead of clawing extra pennies out of Dooyoo, I thought I’d review both in the same opinion. So, it’s a 2-in-1 deal ;-) I first bought this product, because it actually was a "buy one, get one free" offer with two bottles of Radox Supersoap (as it’s called) for £1.85. Now the offer has ended and it’s £1.85 per bottle, which isn’t such a good deal. The bottles each contain 300ml of liquid soap. They are quite chubby white plastic containers with different coloured caps, depending on which variety they are. To unseal the cap, you have to pull it and twist it. Be careful with this, as my fiancé pulled it rather too hard and broke one – so I had to be resourceful and use the same lid for two bottles! This is apparently a new product – well, it has a label on with ‘New’ on it, so it must be there for a reason! Each variety has a different ‘attraction’ to it. The first one we tried was the blue one which is ‘Cleansing’ and is also antibacterial and contains added moisturiser. Each variety has a little circular logo on it boasting a ‘secret blend of herbs and minerals’ in it. The Cleansing one contains thyme extract and tea tree oil. This one is a light blue gel-like substance with smells quite strong and masculine, a lot like an aftershave. I think this is why my fiancé likes this so much. He has even used it in place of deodorant a couple of times and it does the trick, it smells just like a couple of squirts of Gillette! However, us girlies in the house prefer something a bit lighter and more feminine, so we complained. So this time, the weekly trip to Sainsbury’s saw my fiancé bringin
g home a different variety from Radox. No special offers anymore, so just one bottle and this time the orange (maybe peach would be a better description?) one, which is ‘Hand and Face’ with added moisturiser and contains wheatgerm oil and vitamins E and F. This one is not antibacterial and is recommended for sensitive skin, so I prefer this one for that reason. Although my hands are tolerant enough to the Cleansing version, the Hand and Face one does seem softer and gentler on my dry skin. This one is more of a cream than a gel and is a beige colour. It doesn’t smell as strong as the blue one either, maybe a slight perfume to it, similar to a light talc – but nowhere near as powerful or masculine as the other. This one is much more feminine and therefore, my fiancé’s not as keen. It looks as though our bathroom will soon have a permanent His and Hers liquid soaps! Anyway, both soaps work well, they clean and they lather well. The bottles usually last no more than two weeks, which makes them a bit more expensive than I would like, but they are a good quality product. Strangely enough, they are made by Sara Lee! Who knows, perhaps they will come up with a chocolate flavoured liquid soap soon, to complement their range of gateaux? Company address ~ H & BC UK Ltd. Slough SL1 4AU
I bought this on a whim (and because it was on offer in Tescos) and it was a damn good buy. This stuff is marketed as a replacement for soap and I think that it'll have a fair chance at succeeding. Supersoap is a liquid soap that comes in a large pump-dispenser. Intended to remove the need to keep messy bars of soap in the bathroom / kitchen (it's never bothered me, but there you go), Radox Supersoap also fulfills the other important function of being an effective and hygenic cleaner. Available in a range of styles (Caring, Cleansing, Hands & Face & Refreshing) and in a number of perfumes e.g Lemon and Lavender, Essence of Thyme, Jasmine etc this stuff lasts FOREVER. I bought the stuff back in July, and with it being used on average twice a day, it's still hanging in there. The important thing to note with this stuff is that a small, teeny drop on your palm will do for normal handwashing and a larger, double pea sized anount will do for face / neck / etc. Any more, and you'll be attempting to rinse suds from everywhere for a good long while (as I discovered). Another tip is to use a flannel or sponge. As your hands will be sudded up, it'll make the whole thing go faster. Although not strictly a gel, this stuff will act as a pretty damn good shower gel. The Lemon and Lavender is a very nice scent and it lingers for a good long while. The other notable point about Supersoap is that it removes odour very effectively; wash your hands after cutting garlic and the smells gone! Tremendous. It also shifts the harder to get rid of stuff; oil didn't pose a problem for it and with only two small blobs of soap, too. The dispenser is of a sturdy design and isn't likely to go rolling about if you knock it. For the time this stuff lasts, the price of .... (obviously more expensive than soap) I think is worth the outlay.
I was browsing in my local “Savers” shop the other week looking for some soap, when I came across “Radox super soap”. I have tried other products by Radox, which by the way have all been excellent. So I throw one in my basket without hesitation, as it was on offer at 99p. There were lots of different varieties to choose from, cleansing, refreshing but the one that I chose was called caring - with milk and chamomile with added moisturiser. Radox super soap caring hand wash with milk and chamomile smells absolutely lovely, in my opinion it smells just like a bunch of fresh flowers, it smells good enough to eat with your fruit pie, as is has a very smell sweet sickly smell to it. (I wouldn’t recommend eating it though) Now if you haven’t got a degree in the physiology of a plastic bottle top maker you may find it hard to actually get some of the damm soap on your hands, the turn and pump head on the bottle gets me all confused everytime. The turn and push head is actually an excellent idea though as it means you can use the exact amount of the soap you need without having to clean around the top of the bottle every time that it spills over the sides. It is also a good idea has it stops little children messing with it, mine can’t get in it has they haven’t mastered the technique for opening it yet. For the benefit of all of you people that don’t have a degree in the physiology of a plastic bottle top maker I will now explain how to open the super soap - Turn the pump half way round in the direction of the arrow until it locks in to place. To dispense product press down on the pump. (It’s as simple as that) Super soap comes in a white bottle but the colour of the label depends on which variety of the super soap that you choose. My labal is pink and the colour of the cream is white. I wash my hands using this product regularly and I can still smell its fragrance for hours
afterwards. It leaves your hands feeling squeaky clean, very soft and extremely supple and smelling lovely. Super soap comes in a 300lm bottle, which would last the average family a long time. It says on the bottle that Radox super soap combines the Radox secret blend of herbs and minerals with specially selected natural ingredients - Well I’m impressed. My advice is don’t try and make this super soap in your shed because they’re not giving away there secret formula.
Radox Supersoap is a liquid soap which comes in 300 ml plastic bottles with a push down dispenser on top. It comes in four or five different fragrances. So far I have only tried the yellow bottle (lemon oil and lavender) and the blue bottle (thyme and tea tree oil), admittedly because the colours matched the rooms I wanted them to go in, but both soaps smell absolutely beautiful. They are very strong in smell but are very refreshing. I started buying them after coming across one in the bathroom of my sister?s flat. I even had a comment from one of my husband?s male friends who is by no means ?poofy? after he came down from visiting our bathroom. He came back down and into the front room smelling his hands and saying ?ooooh?.that Radox soap is nice?thyme and tea tree oil?). That was a shock.. I never thought I?d hear someone like him, who usually only has anything to say if it is about Ducati motorbikes, compliment our soap!
I have recently purchased one of Radox new lines. RADOX SUPERSOAP....is brilliant! My children now love to wash and will volunteer to go forth and do just that.! It comes in handy dispensers which means 1) No more mess on the side of the wash basin, and 2) It is more hygenic because unless you use glycerin soaps....your soap harbours germs and bacteria which feed on the fatty solids in your soap!! Lovely eh? They come in various blends, I bought two for the price of one at my local Superdrug, for £1.89, not bad? I chose WITCH HAZEL & CHAMOMILE and JASMINE & GENTIAN. Yummy to use, dont dry your skin at all cos theyre PH balanced and they look nice too. What more can i say? Try them if youve ever resented wiping soap scum up!!
