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 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.

Badger – Cheerful Mind Balm

Badger – Cheerful Mind Balm

I recently reviewed Sleep Balm from US natural aromatherapy brand Badger (you can read that review here). I really loved the product and my review got so many mentions and comments that I decided to try out another of Badger’s portable aromatherapy products – Cheerful Mind Balm. This cute little tin contains a soft balm with a blend of essential oils that helps you to dispel that “cloudy day mood”. The two main ingredients are Sweet Orange and Spearmint oils, and all the ingredients are certified organic. You can rub Badger Cheerful Mind Balm on your hands, temples, wrists or anywhere that needs soothing. The scent of the balm is lovely and orangey, but it doesn’t smell too sweet. I think that it has a spicey undertone to the fragrance, one of the ingredients is Cinnamon so it could be this that is coming through. I’ve only been using this balm for a few days so far, I’m not sure if it has made me feel any more cheerful...
