TH&TH Trusted: Radiance Cleanse
Hello Clare from Radiance Cleanse, please introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your amazing company and what you do.
My business partner Christina and I founded Radiance Cleanse in 2009. Christina had an interest in nutrition from a young age and I became interested in 2008 as I had serious health issues and used juicing and nutrition to help regain my health. We both believed passionately in the huge benefits of juice cleansing and we wanted to pioneer the UK’s first high quality, nutritional and organic juice cleanse programmes. And so we launched Radiance! Since we launched we have strived to deliver the best cleanse programmes and help our clients feel amazing.
Here at TH&TH we are focused on getting brides and bridesmaids looking great for the big day. How can Radiance Cleanse help our girls feel good too?
Our cleanses are designed to help our clients look and feel fantastic. We don’t focus on weight loss at Radiance, but it is often a happy side effect of our cleanses! The thing that clients really say they find hugely helpful is that doing a cleanse helps them reset unhealthy eating habits and gets them on the track to eating well and feeling their best. Cleansing itself often also helps give you glowing skin and shiny hair (who doesn’t want this?!), but in helping you to eat better this helps maintain that glow in the longer term. We want all our clients to feel radiant after their cleanse and this is perfect for brides and bridesmaids.
When should you start your programme to ensure you feel great for the big day?
There are a couple of different ways for approaching cleansing prior to a wedding. Some of our ladies will spend six to twelve months preparing for the big day, doing a cleanse once every three months and then a couple of single day cleanses in the month before the wedding. Other ladies opt to do a single three or five day cleanse in the month prior to the wedding to help shift those final few pounds and give them the glow. We always recommend that you leave at least two weeks between the end of your cleanse and the wedding day though, as cleansing can lead to small break outs for some people, and we obviously want to avoid this affecting the big day!
Do they taste good?
We like to think so! We have spent a long time honing our recipes and over the years we’ve tried a lot of juice, so we’d like to think we are reasonably good at it by now! When we are developing juices we spend a huge amount of time testing and tweaking the recipes, and trying them out on various people. The feedback is generally very good, and we’ve had clients booking with us for years so we think that’s a good sign!
Will I feel hungry?
This is one of the questions we get asked most often and is probably one of peoples’ biggest concerns before booking. Obviously everyone is different but it is rare for us to have complaints from people that they are hungry. You can choose to have either 2.5 or 3 litres of juice per day, which is a large volume, so most people are fine with this. Sometimes people may feel a bit hungry, but most of the time they recognise that it’s usually the habit of eating that they miss and not that they are actually hungry! More often than not we have people contacting us to say they can’t get through all the juices and is it ok if they don’t drink them all!
What are the main benefits of a Radiance cleanse program?
There are lots of benefits that our clients say they’ve found once they’ve done a cleanse with us. From the things I’ve mentioned such as helping with weight management and giving great skin, so helping them feel generally cleaner and lighter, more energetic and revitalised and a lot more aware of what they are putting into their body and how this makes them feel and giving them fresh motivation to continue a healthy lifestyle.
What makes cleansing with Radiance special and different?
Radiance is one of the oldest cleansing companies in the UK, we’ve been going since 2009, so we really know our stuff! Our whole team cleanse regularly and really understand the cleansing process and what the experience is like for clients. We are on hand throughout the cleanse (plus before and afterwards) so we can really fully support clients. Whether that’s picking the right cleanse or juices, helping them manage cleanse symptoms or being a metaphorical shoulder to cry on, it’s part of our service. We also have lots of additional items you can add to your cleanse so you can tailor you cleanse more fully to you.
How long do your programs last?
We offer 1,3 and 5 day cleanses. We don’t advocate long term cleansing as we don’t think it’s necessary.
How much are your programs?
Our programmes start from £75 . We aren’t the cheapest service around but we offer the highest quality of product and don't cut any corners. Plus, to quote Vogue, “it’s the ultimate investment in looking good’ and we do like to think of cleansing as an investment!
Do you have any other top tips for brides and bridesmaids to ensure they feel the best they can be on the big day.
It’s all the usual and boring stuff, but making sure you sleep enough is one of the most critical things you can do for looking and feeling your best. That and staying hydrated, both by drinking lots of water and also by looking at ensuring you have enough water and essential fatty acids in your diet or through supplementation. We also find that regular exercise is essential in feeling our best. Whether you love going for a run or heading to a yoga or pilates class, whatever you prefer, making it regular will keep you in shape and feeling your best.
