Radox Feel Lively & Radox Feel Free

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Radox body washes – Radox Scent Touch Feel Lively and Radox Scent Touch Feel Free. These body washes promise to leave skin smelling gorgeous for up to 12 hours.

Radox Scent Touch Feel Lively with wild peony and lychee smells very strong. I’d describe the fragrance as a dense floral fragrance. I can’t say whether it’s peony, and I can’t smell any lychee – the fragrance is just way too strong for my liking. I’ll try it a few more times. But if I can’t make friends with this shower gel, I think it may end up in the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen…

I do like Radox Scent Touch Feel Free with green tea and coconut water a lot better. The fragrance is very strong too, but I like the green tea fragrance, so I’m happy to use this body wash.

Bottom line… the scent touch technology really works. The fragrances of these body washes stay on the skin for several hours. If you like to smell perfumey without using perfume, you should give these body washes a try. Radox Scent Touch Feel Lively and Radox Scent Touch Feel Free are available as 200ml. I paid £1.48 each.

Radox Feel Rejuvenated & Radox Feel Exotic

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 Radox shower gels that I’ve been using for the past week – Radox Feel Rejuvenated (found this at my local Poundstretcher) and Radox Feel Exotic (this one’s from Superdrug).

Radox Feel Rejuvenated with orange oil and vitamin E is pretty awesome! It’s the nicest orange fragrance I’ve ever smelled in a product. It’s oranges, cream and a hint of cheesecake. It’s delicious! The shower cream formula is 100% non-drying. Awesome stuff!

Radox Feel Exotic with lychee and watermelon isn’t that great. I think it smells quite masculine! I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of fizzy guava and coconut. Disappointing…

Radox shower gels are available as 250ml for about £2. I paid 99p for the Feel Rejuvenated shower cream, and 79p for the Feel Exotic shower gel.

Radox Revive & Uplifting

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Radox shower gels that have been sitting in my stash for quite some time – Radox Revive with mandarin & lemongrass and Radox Uplifting with pink grapefruit and basil. Since these two shower gels sounded summery and refreshing, I thought now’s the right time to (finally) give them a try!
Radox Shower 03
Radox Revive (which has been renamed and is now called Radox Feel Revived) with mandarin and lemongrass is quite nice. I would describe the fragrance as a refreshing and tangy citrus fragrance! Whilst I expected a considerably sweeter fragrance, I’m not disappointed. I like the fresh fragrance!

Redox Uplifting (which has been renamed and is now called Radox Feel Uplifted) with pink grapefruit and basil is very nice. The grapefruit note is very authentic whilst (fortunately) the basil note is hardly noticeable. This is a great shower gel. I really enjoy using it!

I know that I’ll buy these 2 Radox shower gels again, and I would recommend them to everyone! Radox shower gels are available as 250ml, and they’re usually around £2 each, but you can find them for £1 each as well (Poundstores, half price promotions, etc.).

Radox Passion Fruit Splash & Mango Mayhem

Hi there! Whilst I love chocolate, vanilla and caramel scented shower and bath products this time of year, I hate the cold. So I often use fresh and fruity shower gels as a pick-me-up and to remind me of my favourite season = summer!

At the moment I’m using two fruity shower gels which I picked up at Poundworld – for £1 each. Now meet Radox Passion Fruit Splash and Radox Mango Mayhem.
Radox Shower
Radox Passion Fruit Splash (a.k.a. Radox Feel Bubbly) with passion fruit and tangerine oil is sunshine in a bottle. The tangerine oil adds a crisp and tangy note, so this shower gel isn’t as sweet as I expected it to be. However, it’s very summery and exotic. I really like it!

Radox Mango Mayhem (a.k.a. Radox Feel Fabulous) with tropical mango and grapefruit oil is a fantastic shower gel. It’s summer in a bottle. The fragrance is sunny and juicy – it’s gorgeous! This is one of the nicest mango shower gels I’ve ever had. It’s almost as good as Boots Extracts’ mango shower gel. But this one is much cheaper! Well done, Radox!

If you’d like to try these shower gels, you should swing by your local bargain stores! 🙂 Thanks for reading!

Radox Brazilian Fusion and Eastern Spirit

Hi there! Today’s post is about two Radox shower gels I picked up at a bargain store – Radox Brazilian Fusion with dragonfruit and camu camu berry, and Radox Eastern Spirit with lotus flower and orange blossom.

Radox Brazilian Fusion with dragonfruit and camu camu berry is more of a shower cream than a shower gel. My dry skin loves it! But the fragrance isn’t what I expected. I thought it would smell somewhat tropical or exotic, but it’s more like an old-fashioned white flower fragrance. I do like it, but I don’t love it. And obviously this shower gel isn’t as ‘summery’ as I’d hoped.
Radox Shower 01
Radox Eastern Spirit with lotus flower and orange blossom is just as I remember it. I really like the feminine and exotic floral fragrance. It’s lovely. And just like Brazilian Fusion, Eastern Spirit is more of a shower cream than a shower gel which is very nice!

Whilst I’m not entirely sure about Eastern Spirit (aka Radox Feel Enchanted – which I spotted at my local Sainsbury’s store very recently), I’m pretty sure Brazilian Fusion has been discontinued. But I reckon quite a few bargain stores still have it. I bought both shower gels for £1 each (at my local Poundstretcher store, I believe).
