We look forward to hearing your review on how Radiant Advanced worked for you and your family.

Please let us know what you thought of Radiant Advanced by answering the following questions in the comment section below:

  - Had you used Radiant Advanced before?

  - Do you have a top loader or front loader machine?

  - Would you recommend the product to others?
  
  - What was the biggest difference in using Radiant Advanced?




I have never used radiant before and was a little apprehensive when the box arrived and I could smell its overpowering scent before I had even unwrapped the package.
I trialled it on a load of whites and colours and was pleased with the results. My clothes were fresh smelling but not overpowering, clean and soft.
I trialled the top loader radiant advanced and it dissolved fully and didn't leave any soap residue on my clothes.
This is definitely a product I will be looking out for on the supermarket shelf.

I regularly use Radiant dark wash but had no used the front loader radiant before and was I suitably impressed with how well it removed stains from my husbands dirty work clothes. I use have since done a load of towels and loved how soft and fluffy they came out plus the smell was nice too. Good product, definitely purchase next time. Thanks Essential Kids and Radiant.  tthumbs.gif

I don't remember if I have used Radiant in the past, but I will be using from now on.
I have a top loader and have done a few washes by now with kid’s clothes and towels and I'm really impressed, it really removes the stains.
Great product, would recommend to others.
Thanks you Essential Kids and Radiant for the sample.

Radiant smells awesome and it did a great job of getting the stains out of my 3 little girls clothes! We would continue to use for the smell alone but the fact it gets all those stains out as well it's amazing!!

I trialled Radiant,  I have never used radiant before as the price was a lot more then other brands on the market. After the first wash I can see why it makes all my clothes  and towels  lovely and soft and does not give off that flower smell. It even get's out the hard stains. biggrin.gif

I have used Radiant before and I quite like the smell and that it leaves the clothes smelling "fresh".  I have not used it though since I purchased a new front loader washing machine and found it great with keeping the towels from going hard as I have found tends to happen with my fast spinning front loader!!

It does a good job of getting out most of the dirt that my 3 grubby little boys clothes pick up and I would use it again and would definately recommend it.

Thank you for the opportunity to trial Radiant.

It's done a great job on my kid's grubby clothes and has left them clean and soft.  I tend to use a little less powder than recommended, and I still found that it worked really well.

I didn't notice that it smelt strongly at all, just a lovely fresh scent.

I would recommend it and use it again.

This was the first time I had tried Radiant in my front loader. I would recommended it to others due to its great stain-removing ability. Clothes came out clean and bright. But for myself, the smell was quite overwhelming. As we dry the clothes inside, we usually use a non or lightly fragranced detergent. Will try the product again in the dryer months when we line-dry outside.

This was the first time I tried Radiant Advanced for front loader machines. I have used Radiant in the past but now use an organic liquid which isn't as strongly fragranced nor leaves residue.
I used the powder to wash a load of bassinet sheets, firstly I was surprised at the enormous scoop size seeing as most detergents are now concentrates and have tiny scoops.
This put me off a bit and I only used a 1/4 scoop also I dint have a full load.
It washed well and the sheets smelt lovely but there was still powder residue in the machine where you put it in for the wash.
I personally wouldn't buy it  as I prefer a liquid detergent,but I will try it a few times again on larger loads and more soiled clothing.

My first time too using Radiant. Thanks for the trial. I have a front loader washing machine and purposely used Radiant on a load of washing with stubborn stains including caramelised balsamic vinegar and red wine. Normally I would apply a stain remover on these stains before putting it in the wash, but I wanted to put Radiant to the test.

I was impressed with how well the stains were removed with just a scoop of Radiant, and I quite liked the scent - clothes smelt very fresh.

I'm not sure why I haven't tried Radiant in the past, but I will definitely keep using it and will recommend to friends and family.

Tried the new Radiant, Very happy with the result.  Washing is clean and bright and smells lovely.  Have used Radiant (old one) in the past and this one is much better.  I usually buy washing powder when it is on special, so will be keeping an eye out for it.  Would certainly recommend it to others biggrin.gif

I was so excited to be selected for this as I use Radiant black wash all the time.  When I opened the package I was surprised at the scent as it was much stronger than I'm used to, as I wash most of my kids clothes and linens in low allergen wash.  For that reason, I just couldn't bring myself to trial this - despite all the great reviews!  I've given the box to my friend, who reports that it washes really well and she's really happy.  I will never know if the scent is as strong in the clothes as it seems in the box, as I found it just too off putting.  Sorry!

Thanks for the sample original.gif  I use Radiant most of the time and have always been pleased with the product.  I have a front loader washer.  I liked the smell of the product and didn't find it at all overpowering; I was also happy with the wash results.  I would definitely recommend the product to others.  The only downside for me was in the opening of the product.  That cardboard strip just didn't want to come away too easily!  It came off eventually in about 3 pieces.  I also agree with an earlier post about the surprise of the size of the scoop when many others are reducing theirs.  I am not aware of the cost of this product but will happily keep using the Radiant I get from my chemist for under $2 a box original.gif

I don't usually use Radiant but was happy to trial it.  The smell was vey strong when the box arrived but I quite like the scent it leaves on the washing.  The strip to open the box didn't  pull away easily.
I have a front loading washing machine and used the recommended dose for clothes, which is quite a large scoop compared to my usual brand.  I found it cleaned the clothes really well and I didn't need to add NapiSan to remove stains.
I would recommend this product and I will be looking for it at the supermarket.

Wow - what a great product! I had never used Radiant before so was curious to see what it would be like. The first thing I noticed was the smell - when it arrived I could smell the fragrance through the wrapping. Leaves a lovely fragrance on the clothes when washed - not overwhelming either.

I used it to wash the whole family's clothing and linen. Got out the really tough stains that toddlers and babies leave behind in their clothes and I didn't have to go back and do spot cleaning like I normally do.

Great product and if the price is right I'll certainly use it again original.gif
