Bees Brilliance

Super-Fruity Lip Rescue #supportingwomen

  • $12.99

Made in Nelson


“Over the year, I’ve tried hundreds of lip balms. The packaging always looks so pretty, but disappointment invariably follows. All I want is a lip balm to give me naturally luscious, pink hydrated lips like Julia Roberts or Angelina Jolie. That isn’t too much to ask from a lip balm, surely? Apparently so. Then along came Super Fruity Lip Rescue. 

The all-natural moisture boost (no harsh parabens or petroleum here) comes principally from Borage Honey, a naturally sweet liquid honey collected from the wildflowers of the Marlborough and Otago regions of the South Island of New Zealand. And extracted from locally grown raspberry in Bees Brilliance hometown of Nelson, New Zealand Raspberry Seed Oil, an ultra-nourishing oil known to help reduce inflammation and rich in antioxidants for added protection.

As if that wasn’t enough, Bees Brilliance has added New Zealand Elderberry Oil rich in Phyto-nutrients to help support healthy skin condition, and New Zealand Kiwifruit Oil its high concentration of Alpha Linoleic Acid (Omega 3), which helps to improve moisture and elasticity in the skin.

Your lips will thank you.”

Hot Lips Monica, Curation team



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.
