If you missed the Game Fair this weekend, then I’m sorry to say that you also missed the highly-anticipated launch of brilliant new British skincare brand Barker & Sloane! Barker & Sloane was set up with the specific aim of creating nutritional skincare products for country-loving ladies. So what better place to launch the brand than the Game Fair? The range is formulated specifically for ladies who love to work and play in the great outdoors. But who don’t want to compromise on having great skin.

The Game Fair ran from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th of July. And is an annual celebration of every single aspect of the British countryside. Thousands of visitors (and their faithful canine companions!) flock there over three days. To take in the wide range of trade stands, exhibitors and incredible food outlets. This year’s event saw Barker & Sloane hitting the road for the very first time. And joining much-loved country clothing brand Emma Brown Tweed on a joint stand. It was time to unveil the Barker & Sloane skincare range!

The launch products – Daily Defender, 12 Bore Mist and Overnight Recovery – together make up the Barker & Sloane Kit for Skin, a one stop shop designed to support skin before, during and after exposure to the elements.

The brand’s founder Claire is an award-winning cosmetic formulator and a passionate advocate of British farming. Which is why the whole range is made from British botanicals. Above all this is to calm, protect and soothe.


Even a rather rainy day on Saturday didn’t damped spirits, with customers flocking to the stand to try out the Barker & Sloane products and take the very first chance to buy some for themselves.

For Clare it marked an incredible moment in her journey, seeing the very first Barker & Sloane customer with their branded shopping bag in their hand as they went off to continue enjoying the show. “I absolutely loved collaborating with my dear friend and fellow rural business owner Emma Brown Tweed. As we shared a brand on Gun Makers Row. I’m amazed at the messages I’ve received from people who bought the products at the show. And can’t wait to do our next one! But, for now, a much-needed rest and the chance to dry out!”
