They have just introduced a new range into their product partners – Laughing Bird. An important factor for Radiance when looking at new stockists is that they are only the best natural, organic, and British brands – and not necessarily brands we’ve all heard of.
Radiance invited me to pop in and have a look at this new range and to test a few of the products. Laughing Bird are tucked away in a converted stable situated in the village of Sling, North Wales, and have developed their dream of using the very best of local and home grown ingredients alongside fairly traded produce to create a sumptuous, wholesome and nourishing range of body care products.
First up I tried the orange lip balm which is made with a mix of golden unrefined beeswax, sunflower seed oil, and high strength vitamin e oil, then scrumptiously flavoured with essential oils for lovely soft, smooth, moisturised lips. I really liked the texture and it wasn’t too greasy which is a major issue when using lip balm – one doesn’t like it to smear all over ones face!! My only issue with it is that it’s in a pot…I don’t like using it and then putting my finger back in, I much prefer my lip balms in a stick. This retails at £3 for 15ml.
I absolutely loved the body and hand creams in this range – you’ve got Shea & Cocoa Butter Hand Cream, Unrefined Shea Butter and then Shea and Cocoa Butter Body Cream with Moringa and Blueberry plus another with Honey and Rose. These creams are thick and luxurious without feeling like they are going to take forever to rub into the skin – who’s got time for that?! A little goes a long way with these products.
I also had a little test of the Eldberry & Borage face cream although only the back of my hand so couldn’t comment on whether it broke my annoyingly super sensitive skin out. It’s suggested that this is used as a night cream as the rich and deeply nourishing oils used and it has the lovely calming fragrance of pure frankincense essential oil. This retails at £8 for 60ml.
There are also foot creams, hair treatments, body scrubs and body washes in the range but I didn’t try any of these so couldn’t really comment. I’ll be willing to be bet they are pretty super like the rest of the range.
This range is very reasonably priced – the most expensive item is the 500ml Unrefined Shea Butter which sells for £15 and will last you a LONG time.
If you’re not local to Bath, never fear as you can order all of these products on Radiance Wellbeings online shop.
