Dr Paw Paw Original Balm*
I had heard a lot about Dr Paw Paw Original Balm before I got to try it. It’s massive amongst beauty bloggers and vloggers and they all agree that it’s great so I was really looking forward to trying it out.
The handy little tube is the size of a regular lip balm and is packed full of great ingredients including carica papaya (fermented pawpaw) which is a fruit full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Pawpaw is definitely a hero product in the beauty industry right now and it’s easy to see why. It helps to repair the skin, adds moisture and smooths and tightens the skin too so it’s multi-talented.
You can use Dr Paw Paw for pretty much anything – lip balm, cuticles, dry skin, eyebrows…literally anything! I love products like this as they save space in your bag because you don’t need to bring every different product with you. I always have dry hands and dry lips so this allows me to get rid of my hand cream and my lip balm and just bring this instead. It’s a real handbag space saver – ladies you’ll know what I’m talking about!
The consistency of Dr Paw Paw reminds me a little of Vaseline which has always been my go to budget product for various things before now. Dr Paw Paw is really moisturising and nourishing and there are so many ways in which you can use it. Here are some of them…
Uses for Dr Paw Paw
– Lip balm
– Hand cream
– Cuticle and nail cream
– Heel balm
– Eyebrow shaper
– Hair smoother
– Make-up primer or finisher
– Dry or irritated skin soothe/repair
– Nappy cream (apparently – I have no experience in this sort of use!)
– Tea maker (ok, just kidding about that last one!)
There’s only one thing that I’m not overly keen on with this and that is the difficulty of squeezing it out of the tube. It can be a little bit tough to get much of the product out but maybe that’s a small price to pay.
