Ring lamp needed: advice appreciated

I'd be grateful for any tips about a simple table mounted ring lamp I could buy online (Henry's, or any other reputable firm doing business in Canada). My needs are minimal, so high end items are probably not necessary to me. Thanks & best.

Is this something like what you envision?
Godox LR150 LED Ring Light - Strobepro Studio Lighting
I've dealt with these folks and find them very accommodating.

I wonder if you need to freeze a movement, what is common scenario in macro photography. If this is the case, LED lights won't do the trick.
