“Wow! Wow! Wow!  If you don’t have the money or time to regularly treat yourself to treatments at a Day Spa, then this product is for you.

The all-natural lightweight gel-cream has an instant skin cooling and hydrated affect that transforms your face an instant glow of hydration that usually only follows a face massage or treatment. Mānuka Honey from these Earth Kind 3rd generation beekeepers, is the core essence of this intensive skin hydrator. Produced in one of the most pristine locations of New Zealand, Nelson Mānuka Honey is one of nature's best humectants, helping draw moisture to the skin and keeping the skin hydrated and soft. 

This lightweight gel-cream with a luxurious citrus fragrance is enhances with L22 (patented blend of botanically sourced Macadamia, Jojoba, and Olive oils), Aquaxyl (natural derivative of two plant sugars, Glucose and Xylitol, improving the skin’s natural ability to retain water/moisture), and Prolevis (helps instantly smooth visible surface wrinkles & imperfections).

This can be used like a serum under your moisturiser, as a face brightener, or even as a makeup primer. This is a must-have product, and sits in the bathroom cupboards of all the Small Marvels curators.”

Carolyn Managh, Small Marvels Curator


All Bees Brilliance products use honey sourced from locally cared-for honey bee colonies in Nelson, New Zealand. 

Maintaining and propagating flora that our bees really love helps support healthy pollinator populations. Planting wildflowers in your garden, at the office or school, are easy. Plus they’re particularly effective ways of helping keep our honey bees happy, healthy and doing the wonderful job we all take for granted. Bees Brilliance does their part in helping keep New Zealand's bee population alive and thriving, by promoting and selling Bee Blend Seed Bombs.



The Bees Brilliance brand was created in Brightwater, Nelson, NZ in 2015 by architectual designer, Julene Cropp, married to Matt Cropp, a 4th generation beekeeper. Julene's vision was to create good, natural skincare by women in the community, for women, to replace the multitude of products with complicated ingredients and synthetic fillers made in faceless factories.

Within a few short years, Bees Brilliance became a women's personal care manufacturing company. This means 90% of Bees Brilliance workers are women earning Living Wage upwards. Global research over the past decade has shown when women are paid a wage in a developing nation, they are more likely to spend it on feeding, clothing, educating and housing their children. When women are empowered children and communities thrive.

Bees Brilliance also actively supports the Nelson Women’s Refuge Centre.
