This effective product was created for our teenage son. Like many teens, he experiences random out breaks of acne on his face and back. He is perfect with or without the acne, but we do tend to use our Hipbees products for good natural hygiene to keep it under control :)
Combined with a regular washing routine and weekly acne mask, the Hipbee Boy Acne Stick is an essential component to any acne management plan :)
Hipbee Boy Acne Stick combines carrier oils of sunflower and jojoba with bees wax, and 100% therapeutic grade essential oils of: Bergamot, Palmarosa, Spike Lavender, Tea Tree, and Thyme to form a powerful remedy to minor acne concerns.
For Best Use: Use a gentle cleanser for the affected area (Hippees Oil Cleansing Method is great for managing acne caused by excess oil). Then allow the face to dry completely, and finally - apply the acne stick to spots, or areas suffering from an acne outbreak. IF the acne stick further irritates the skin discontinue use.
Mud-masking has been around since ancient times, for good reason. Good old-fashioned earth has many benefits for the skin. When you think of face masks, clay probably comes to mind since so very many of them contain clay as the star component to absorb impurities and help nourish and heal your skin.
Hipbees Backne Mask contains predominately Canadian Glacial Clay:) Over here at Hipbees, we aim to source raw material close to home, it is not always possible (they aren't growing coconuts in SASK yet), but we do what we can. As such, we chose Canadian Glacial Clay for our mask treatments. Referred to internationally as 'miracle clay', it is one of the most pure clays available in terms of the concentration of minerals and elements. Coupled with its amazing absorptive ability, Glacial Clay’s net negative ion charge attracts most positively charged bacteria, contaminants, and toxins, thereby detoxifying, rejuvenating, revitalizing, and deep cleansing the skin:)

To use: Mix about two tablespoons (depending on the size of the back) with equal parts of water until a smooth paste forms. Spread a thin even layer over the affected area and leave on until it just STARTS to dry. Rinse off in the shower with warm water. Finish with a gentle dry brushing if necessary. **Do the touch test: When you start to see it drying (which usually means it gets lighter in color) but it still feels a bit sticky, it's time to wash that baby off so it doesn't dry out your skin!
Important to note:There are three phases of a clay mask, first: the damp phase where your skin drinks in the beneficial minerals from the outside. Second you have the start of the dry phase, which exercises your capillaries and stimulates blood flow as the mask cools and contracts. But then there's the dry phase, which draws out moisture from the surface of your skin, causing dehydration and irritation. If left onto dry completely, the skin can feel dry, tight, and sometimes itchy.
Also important: Using a clay treatment for the skin can actually cause a short-term break out. Don't worry, this is a natural process of the skin healing. It will not last long, and is just part of the de-toxifying process. We sometimes do two masks/week and the results are awesome! However, if there is a severe reaction to the mask discontinue use and please let us know!
Sometimes it is nice to enhance our natural musk with a beautiful scent inspired by nature. Instead of artificial fragrance or perfume, Hipbees encourages a gentle mist of our Hipbee Boy Body Spray made from floral waters and 100% therapeutic grade essential oils to bring scent joy to yourself and those near you:)
Hipbees Teen Boy Body Spray is a subtle way of showing you care about the smell you put out into the world. We have combined Sandalwood floral water with the essential oils of: Black Spruce, Fir,Oak Moss, Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Patchouli to create an earthy and grounded scent enhancer just for you! We hope you love it as much as we do :)
Hipbees does not use solubizers or alcohol so separation does occur, simply shake before each use-no problem!
To use: Simply spritz the body and/or clothes with 3-5 sprays and go on your merry way smelling amazing.
Cautions: Avoid contact with eye and/or open mouth. Do NOT spray directly onto the genitals. Also, you may be asked repeatedly why you smell so amazing, be prepared to make new friends.
The Original Hipbees Lipbalm was created for our little boy to save his chapped lips...that little guy grew into a big Teen Boy, looking for something a little more exciting.
The new Hipbee Boy Lip Balm still provides a very effective layer of protection for the tender skin of the lips, preventing dryness and chapping. To ensure soft and pain-free lips wecombine the moisturizing benefits of coconut and jojoba oils, with the amazing properties of bees wax and honey:) Hipbee Boy Lip Balm not only has a cool label, it also has a subtle chai smell and flavor (bonus: it is sweetened with stevia).
