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 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).

Rightguard Shower + Lotion with Pomegranate & Rightguard Shower + Nutrients with Acai Berry

Hi there! Today’s post is about the two Rightguard shower creams I picked up at my local Home Bargains store a while ago – Rightguard Shower + Lotion with Pomegranate and Rightguard Shower + Nutrients with Acai Berry.

The Pomegranate shower cream feels very nice on my skin. And it really does let me skip the moisturiser every once in a while. I wouldn’t say this shower cream is nourishing – but it’s not that far off! The fragrance is a bit generic, but I’d definitely recommend this shower cream to everyone with dry skin. Seriously, try it!
Rightguard Shower
The Acai Berry shower cream feels just as nice as the pomegranate shower cream. However, the acai berry shower cream gets extra points in my book for smelling divine. I didn’t expect that because this shower cream didn’t smell that great from the bottle – but it turns into fresh berries and yoghurt heaven as soon as it hits the skin. Awesome product!

In terms of creaminess, I think these Rightguard shower creams are even better than Palmolive Naturals! If you’d like to try more Rightguard products, check out their Shower + Vitamin C (with yummy pink grapefruit) and their Shower + Oils (with pampering argan, marula and almond oil). Rightguard shower products are usually around £2 – but you can often find them for under £1 when they’re on special. 🙂

Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream With Hibiscus, Pistachio Cream with Magnolia and Shea Butter with Warm Vanilla

Hi there! Now that it’s cold and my skin is really dry, I thought I’d treat myself to a few new shower creams. Meet Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream with Hibiscus, Pistachio Cream with Magnolia and Shea Butter with Warm Vanilla.

Let me start with the Almond and Hibiscus shower cream which also happens to be my favourite of the three. This shower cream smells absolutely delicious – like hot chocolate with a touch of almond milk. I’ll definitely buy it again – soon!
Dove Purely Pampering Shower
I don’t care much for the Pistachio and Magnolia shower cream. The fragrance isn’t bad. It just doesn’t tickle my fancy. Well, and it started to annoy me a bit half-way through the bottle. I won’t repurchase this one.

The Shea Butter and Vanilla shower cream smells wonderful. The fragrance is sweet, warm, comforting and cuddly. It’s almost as lovely as the almond and hibiscus fragrance. I will definitely buy this one again!

I think these shower cream really work for dry skin. They can’t replace a moisturiser, but they do leave my skin feeling soft for hours. Dove Shower Creams are available as 250 ml for about £2.50 each and 500 ml for around £4 to £4.40. The big 500 ml bottles are currently half price at Tesco’s! 🙂
