Skin Bliss: You need to try this stuff !!!

Skin Bliss

This is a product that will change the way you experience the outdoors,


Have you ever been hiking in the New Zealand bush, trying to relax on tropical beaches, enjoying a romantic sunset with your loved one or do anything remotely outdoorsy ? If you have you’ll know the feeling when you’re confronted with the extremely irritating hum, buzz and bites of blood thirsty bugs. Not only do they skit around in your vision obscuring the views, but they gorge themselves on your tasty blood too!



Introducing Skin Bliss


It will amplify your enjoyment of the outdoors; helping to maximise your time outside, allowing you to remain bite free. Oh yeah another thing, it will and make you smell down right divine.


How ? What is Skin Bliss ?

Let me enlighten you to a bite free world of pure perfume.

Skin Bliss

  • 100% natural
  • 17 beneficial herbal essential oils to repel insects and enhance healing
  • Zero chemical additives
  • 82% certified organic ingredients which protect, nourish and soothe the skin
  • Super effective
  • Ethical production standards; it is not tested on animals
  • Smells exquisite
  • Immediate and long-lasting protection
  • It’s also a natural sun screen


I am a sea kayak guide in the Abel Tasman National Park where this product is hand made and produced. I use Skin Bliss on a daily basis to keep the pesky sand flies at bay. It also helps a hairy outdoorsman like myself smell FANTASTIC.

I cannot recommend or even think of a product that comes close to the effectiveness of Skin Bliss.

100% organic

100% Kiwi

You need some Skin Bliss in your life.

Stay stoked & keep exporling bite free.

The Two Bearded Men Story

To follow up on our lovely piece from Forbes about his time in New Zealand, we have this lovely film from the production company “Two Bearded Men’. As self proclaimed explorers we thought that they would make a fantastic  feature on the site.

Two Bearded Men represents our chosen way of life. We are a team of real, passionate, driven, kiwi film makers telling stories that we love. We surround ourselves with an incredible, inspirational environment, and thrive off creating innovative and award winning work. Moving image, human voice, and music are our vehicles for communication.
