Radox Mineral Therapy Sleep Aromatherapy Bath Salts With Lavender & Ylang Ylang

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! Today’s post is about these Radox Mineral Therapy Sleep Aromatherapy Bath Salts With Lavender & Ylang Ylang.

These bath salts are made with 100% pure sea salt and scented with what Radox calls its “DreamScentz fragrance” which, according to Radox, improves sleep quality. For one bath, you’re supposed to use about 2-3 handfuls (or 4-5 for an extra intense mineral experience) of these bath salts.

I already finished the entire pouch – with the help of my husband, who also used these bath salts once or twice. And I’m happy to report that I (well, we) found these bath salts very nice. They make for a very relaxing bath, and the fragrance is very “purple” – it’s a strong, powdery lavender and ylang ylang fragrance. Really good stuff!

These bath salts will be a regular purchase from now. If you’re interested, Radox Mineral Therapy Sleep Aromatherapy Bath Salts With Lavender & Ylang Ylang are available as 900g. I paid £2.25 (Sainsburys).

Empties – June 2021

Hi there! It’s the first of a new month (wow, halfway through the year already…), and this means that today’s post is about all the products I finished last month. As always, I used a bunch of single-use face masks, and you can read about my latest face mask finds if you click here. Now, let’s look at the big bottles, tubes and tubs!

1 Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum (50ml) – what a beautiful fragrance! I’ve already repurchased it – and I went for the big 100ml bottle this time!

2 Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel – this is a good face wash. But the strong yuzu scent put me off, and that’s why I won’t repurchase this face wash.

3 Anna Sui L’Amour Rose Versailles Eau De Parfum – this is a really nice fragrance, and I enjoyed wearing it very much, but I won’t buy it again.

4 Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Conditioner With Ginseng Extract – I loved this conditioner (and the matching shampoo) so much! I’m sad this line has been discontinued. 😢

5 Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel – I love this shower gel! Repurchase? Yes!

6 Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream – this shower gel is very good too, and I hope to buy it again soon.

7 Sanctuary Spa Heel Balm – a very good product. It’s too expensive, so I won’t buy it on its own, but I’d be delighted to find it in another Sanctuary Spa gift set.

8 Radox Mineral Therapy Muscle Soak Bath Salts – I really enjoyed these bath salts. I will buy them again!

9 Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot – these were good but not great. I might buy them again for half price, but I might not.

10 Westlab Cleansing Himalayan Salt – I like these a lot. Whilst these salts are unscented, they make my skin feel amazing. I enjoy using these on their own or mixed in with scented bath salts. I will buy these bath salts again, no doubt!

And this is everything for this month. Not a huge number of products, but finishing bath salts (those Westlab ones are 1kg each) frees up a lot of space under the sink! I expect a bit of skin care to finish next month, and at least 4 shower gels as well, so there should be more than 10 products in total.

Radox Mineral Therapy Muscle Soak Bath Salts

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Radox Mineral Therapy Muscle Soak Bath Salts which I can’t believe I’ve never tried before. These bath salts contain thyme extract. They promise to help relieve muscle aches and to leave skin feeling silky smooth. You’re supposed to use 2-3 handfuls of these bath salts for your bath.

I’ve given these bath salts a try, and I’m glad I did! The bath salts have a subtle marine and slightly herbal scent, they dissolve in no time, they turn the bathwater light blue (I like!), and they do leave skin feeling smooth. I think these bath salts are very enjoyable and relaxing, and my husband agrees. These will be a regular purchase from now on!

Radox Mineral Therapy Muscle Soak Bath Salts are available as 400g for about £1. Depending on how much product you use, the pack should be sufficient for 3-4 baths.
