Just picked up one of the ones I regularly buy and have noticed it now has MEN written upon it.

This has annoyed my two fold

1) if it's Radox MEN is it only to be used by Men in a bath rather than a man. It will be cramped.

2) it's bubble bath ..... It doesn't need gender assigning. It never has before. Radox are being twats.

Anyway, I'm in it now. My ovaries haven't fallen out and I've not been arrested by the bath police but

AIBU not to buy Radox again until they stop being silly?

Check for a twirly moustache when you get out.

What does it smell like? Is it all black pepper and pine type stuff?

My manly man is 37 and still uses matey bubbly bath

DS has 'man bubbles'.

We call them 'mubbles'.

THere has always been a men radox specification. I have always bought it for my boys to encourage them to bathe/shower., when they were younger anyway. I'd rather you didn't make everyone boycott it tbh.

Well a man needs a manly bubble bath doesn't he? I'm not sure what makes it manly but that's beside the point.

YANBU obviously, it's stupid marketing.

I worked in a supermarket. A man came in asking for hair dye for men. I showed them to him but we only had a dark brown in stock, not the black that he wanted. I asked of he'd like to look at the women's dye as it would still work (phrased non-sarcastically, I can't remember the exact words I used). He went MAD at me, how dare I suggest that, he's a man, he can't use hair dye for women! The horror! He called over a manager to put in a complaint about me for it. I think he would like this bubble bath.

Oh no, I think DH uses the normal women's stuff. Do you think it might make his willy shrivel up? sad Now I'm worried.

The shower gels did, the bubble bath didn't.

And it's bleeding blackberry and ginger. It's autumnal .... That's surely not exclusive to the Y chromosome.

I noticed this recently when I was confused in the supermarket why I couldn't see my usual flavours of Original Source shower gel but instead found exciting "new" ones like Blue Ginger (eh?) before realising I was unwittingly in the Men's Shower section. I'd naively assumed we shared showering. Had a rant about it mid-aisle to dp.

So, yeah, OP. It's like Chocolate for Men and Crisps for Men. Weird.

I don't think that's unusual. Most bubble baths are all girly with jasmine and shit. The adverts for these are aimed at women relaxing in the bath.

Nothing wrong with a manly scent otherwise all perfume would be unisex ffs.

Yorkie bars on the other hand urgh. I liked them before their shit advertising.

It's ok. The other Radox is gender free so his willy will be fine <reassuring pat on the arm for Bertie>

HoneyDragon Thu 22-Oct-15 18:51:48

My bath tub is gender fluid, so I think bubble should be.

HoneyDragon Thu 22-Oct-15 18:52:31

My bath tub doesn't wear aftershave it likes to wear Cif.

BubsandMoo Thu 22-Oct-15 18:53:14

But why is jasmine 'girly'? What makes a scent 'manly'?

Champagneformyrealfriends Thu 22-Oct-15 18:55:05

This really irritated me too - that ones my favourite! confused

Just checked our radox. Black pepper and ginseng bath foam= safe for penises and vulvas.

Blissful escape shower gel = smells like old ladies but still appears to be safe for all types of genitals

OvO Thu 22-Oct-15 18:59:02

I bought it recently and used it. I now have a willy. Be careful people, it was too manly for me.

We thoroughly mocked it in the OvO household.

Only on Mumsnet.
Why is there seperate men and women's perfumes? Does anyone actually care?

HoneyDragon Thu 22-Oct-15 19:03:30

Yes I care, noeffingidea hence the thread. Very much actually.

It's had very distressing consequences for me this sudden change in my bubble bath status.

Men and women have different perfumes though - I wouldn't want to spray myself DH's Davidoff or whatever, even though it wouldn't do any harm. Don't think this any different really.

HoneyDragon Thu 22-Oct-15 19:56:28

But it is different

If Chanel,No.5 went and put FOR MEN on it, then it would be the same.

Passmethecrisps Thu 22-Oct-15 19:56:45

This adds nothing but I totally read the above as "DH's hasslehoff "

I was wondering who the fuck wants to smell of David hasslehof

I bought some Radox Man shower gel the other day. It's hanging in the shower cubicle all threatening like.

Sparklingbrook Thu 22-Oct-15 20:03:50

TBF my gynaecologist said 'Sparkling never add anything to the bath but yourself'.

He wasn't a fan of bubbles.

Once when I stayed at a friends house, she told me to use any perfume/bath products/shower gel etc I found in the bathroom cupboards. I found some very nice perfume which I used liberally and everyone complemented me on it - she asked what I was using and when I showed her she said 'oh that's some stuff my XH left behind when he moved out' But I carried on using it because it was nice, I didn't grow a beard or a unwanted dangly stuff.

Scent is scent - radox are deranged (I have some bath salts type stuff from them supposedly for aching limbs etc - smells like pine and doesn't dissolve properly so your bum gets a good scraping in the bath - I only mention this so folk can avoid it). Their jasmine/peony/pomegranite type shit is Ok though.
