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 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).

Hi there! I love my daily shower in the moning, but I also love a hot bath before bed, especially during the winter months. I’m emptying countless bottles of bath gel, cream and soak every winter. And this year I’m trying hard to reduce my bottomless toiletries stash by actually using stuff up and not leaving half-empty bottles around the bath tub.
At the moment I’m using three Radox bath soaks in a rota – Radox Muscle Therapy with black pepper and ginseng, Radox Relax with lavender and water lily, and Radox Eastern Spirit with lotus flower and orange blossom. These three bath soaks are very popular in our household. So let’s have a closer look.
Radox Muscle Therapy has been one of my husband’s favourite bath soaks for years. He swears by it. Whenever he’s had a rough day or his muscles ache, this is his go-to bath soak. Muscle Therapy doesn’t do much for me – and that’s mainly because I find the black pepper & ginseng fragrance too masculine. But that’s alright. My husband and I agree that Muscle Therapy is a man bath soak! 🙂
Radox Relax is my favourite of the bunch. I love the lavender & waterlily fragrance. It smells warm, feminine, pleasant and very relaxing. I’ll definitely buy it again. This bath soak has been renamed. Its new name is Feel Relaxed.
Radox Eastern Spirit is the creamiest of these three bath soaks. The lotus flower & orange blossom fragrance is wonderfully exotic and feminine. If I close my eyes and breathe in, I sometimes forget that it’s cold and dark outside. A very lovely fragrance! This bath soak has been renamed as well. It’s now called Feel Enchanted.
Radox Muscle Therapy, Feel Relaxed and Feel Enchanted are available as 500 ml for £1.99 each – but they can usually be found for £1 each or slightly less. Feel Relaxed is also available as shower gel, and Feel Enchanted is available as hand wash and shower gel.
