Today's review is of Radox Nourish Shower Cream. For those readers who recall my review of the brand's Cherry Blast Shower Gel (click here to read), it may seem surprising that I've revisited Radox's shower products. In actual fact, I picked this up at the same time as the Cherry Blast Shower Gel. Despite my previous negative review, I aimed to keep an open mind when trialling the Nourish Shower Cream.
As you'd expect, the packaging isn't exactly luxurious but it is functional with a squeeze dispenser at the base. I liked that it had a plastic hook at the top which could be flicked up if you prefer to hang your body wash in the shower. What's more, I liked that the transparent packaging meant that I could see how much was remaining.
Given the wallet friendly price tag, it was unsurprising that the second ingredient is Sodium Laureth Sulphate. This meant that I was easily able to work the shower cream into a generous lather. However, I tend to find SLS strips my skin and leaves it feeling dry. As such, I wasn't able to forgo moisturiser following use and I certainly didn't notice any skin nourishing benefits, as the name suggests.
The packaging boasts a "feel good fragrance" and a nurturing blend of shea butter and ginger. It has a fruity fragrance which I found to be pleasant and not sickly sweet. I didn't notice that the scent lingered on my skin once I was out of the shower.
I felt as though I went through this body wash quite quickly so I'd recommend using a bath puff with it to make it go further.
I preferred this to the Cherry Blast Shower Gel. I felt that the packaging had been given more consideration and also, the scent was more to my personal taste. Having said this, I still didn't love Radox Nourish Shower Cream. It's fine and does the job (although I'd argue its "nourishing" claims) but there are other products which I prefer so I won't be repurchasing.
