Radox – Uplifting Pink Grapefruit & Basil Handwash

Radox – Uplifting Pink Grapefruit & Basil Handwash

Just a quick review for you today of Radox Uplifting Pink Grapefruit & Basil Handwash. I picked this up from the supermarket recently, to keep on the side of the sink in our bathroom. Pink grapefruit is one of my favourite scents (check out my reviews of Burt’s Bees Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit and The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette if you like the scent too!). The product itself is a transparent pinky coloured gel, it looks a really pretty colour in the bottle. The handwash lathers up really quickly but has quite a spicy fragrance rather than the usual sweet citrussy scent that I was expecting. I couldn’t pick out the basil in the fragrance either. This Radox handwash is pleasant but I have to say it’s not my favourite pink grapefruit beauty product that I’ve tried. Plus it contains sodium laureth sulfate – the ingredient which makes most soaping products lather – which can be quite harsh and I usually try to avoid it....

Janjira – Thai Lime & Ginger Hand Wash

Janjira – Thai Lime & Ginger Hand Wash

I always try to use hand washes made from natural ingredients that don’t contain sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) and this Thai Lime & Ginger Hand Wash from Janjira fits the bill. The Janjira brand was born in Thailand, hence the exotic sounding name, and none of their products contains parabens, paraffins or sulphates – neither are they tested on animals. The Janjira philosophy is all about experiencing spa-inspired products in your own home. The product that I have been using is a small sample size tube of Thai Lime & Ginger Hand Wash that I recently received in my Dream Box (a collaboration beauty box between Latest In Beauty and British Beauty Blogger) but the full size product is a rather handsome tall dark green pump bottle, as you can see from the image above. The hand wash itself is a thick, clear gel which foams fairly easily when added to water but does still feel quite thick in your hands and needs a thorough rinsing. It has a...

Naturally European – Ginger & Lime Luxury Hand Wash

Naturally European – Ginger & Lime Luxury Hand Wash

I recently purchased this Ginger & Lime Luxury Hand Wash from Naturally European to put by the sink in my kitchen. I have previously used their Rose Petal Luxury Hand Wash (you can read my review of that here) and really loved it, plus Naturally European’s products do not contain any parabens or SLS and are not tested on animals which is great. Naturally European’s products are all based on traditional fragrances, and include rose petal, lavender, milk and verbena. I think their bottles look really nice and classy too, I love the traditional style of the labels. It’s a nice big 500ml bottle too so it will last for ages. A squirt of this hand wash is quite generous and it also gives a really good slippery soapy lather which can be quite rare with SLS-free products. The fragrance is lovely and citrussy when you’re actually using it and I struggled to detect the scent of ginger…. but after your hands have been dried it leaves behind a...

Naturally European – Rose Petal Luxury Hand Wash

Naturally European – Rose Petal Luxury Hand Wash

I have recently purchased this Rose Petal Luxury Hand Wash from Naturally European to put by the sink in our downstairs toilet. I was searching for something fairly glamorous-looking with a pink label, not containing any parabens or SLS and not tested on animals – and this product fulfilled all my wishes! Naturally European’s products are all based on traditional fragrances, including rose petal, lavender, milk and verbena. I wanted a product that looked good by the sink and this doesn’t disappoint, I love the traditional style of the label. It’s a nice big 500ml bottle too so it will last for ages. A squirt of this hand wash is quite generous and it also gives a really good lather which can be quite rare with SLS-free products. I’m not usually a fan of rose fragrance as I feel it can seem quite dated and over-sweet, but this Rose Petal Luxury Hand Wash has a really nice delicate fragrance with an almost apple-y touch to it. If you prefer...

Greenscape – Organic Cocoa Butter Foaming Hand Wash

Greenscape – Organic Cocoa Butter Foaming Hand Wash

In my recent quest to replace all of my everyday skincare and bodycare products with ones containing natural or organic ingredients I came across the Greenscape Organic Skin Care range. Greenscape is a range of organic skincare – premium, ethically produced natural organic skin and body care products made with love and the greatest of care – founded in 1999 in the UK. All of Greenscape’s products exclude parabens, mineral oils, synthetic colourings and aggressive skin cleansing agents. Greenscape offer product ranges based around 4 main ingredients – shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil and honey – with 5 products in each range. I needed a new hand wash for the bathroom, and I chose the Organic Cocoa Butter one as I love the scent of creamy cocoa butter and it was also the most neutral colour for my bathroom. I wanted a product that looked good in the bathroom and this doesn’t disappoint, the bottle looks classy and I think it almost rivals Molton Brown in the looks...
