A couple if months back I was given a tube of Dr.PAWPAW, a multipurpose soothing balm that can be used for lips, skin, hair and beauty finishing, cuticles and nails. A 25ml tube retails at £6.95 and is made in the UK from a mixture of natural ingredients including (obviously) paw paw. It promises a lot and I was a little skeptial at first, but as I’m always trying to decrease the amount of stuff I carry around in my handbag, I thought I’d give it a go.
Firstly, I’m a big fan of the bright yellow they used for the tube as it’s super fun. It also makes it really easy to spot when searching for it in amongst the sea of receipts that is my bag! When I first went to use it, I initially found the balm quite hard to squeeze out of the tube and was worried it’d be really stiff to apply. However, once out of the tube the balm becomes really soft and smooth and easily applied. I began with testing it on my lips as I often suffer with these getting quite dry and was amazed by the results. Dr.PAWPAW seemed to make them feel instantly softer and less dry and on top of this, I seemed to be feeling the results a lot quicker than with other balms I use. The teeniest tiniest bit of this goes such a long way as well so it works out being really good value.
I also found that it was really good for when I’d all of a sudden out of nowhere have really dry cracked knuckles or something. It was also really good for sudden dry elbow syndrome. I have to be honest and say I haven’t tried it in my hair as I have a serum I tend to use in the mornings anyway but I have found that it’s worked for everything I have tried which is pretty amazing! For me it definitely works best as an on-the-go product, which I feel is it’s intention. You can just throw it into your bag and it can come to your rescue for a whole variety of needs. It’s cleared up some space in my bag anyway!
Dr.PAWPAW also do a couple of tinted versions which would be perfect if you use this mainly for your lips as I do. The thing I really love about this product though is being able to use it for so many things, so I’d only get the tinted ones as additional versions, not as my original purchase. Hopefully I can get my hands on one of these in the future and try them out.
Dr.PAWPAW has quickly become a bit of a handbag staple of mine. Let me know in the comments what you think of Dr.PAWPAW or if you have another multipurpose product you can recommend!
