I was recently sent this Dr.PAWPAW Original Balm* to give a whirl and review for you guys! At first I was a little apprehensive because all other balms I've used like this are super thick and gloopy. Contain natural ingredients such as Papaya the nutrient rich fruit, Olive Oil with high levels of vitamin A and E which are amazing for the skin and Aloe which retains moisture.
When I first opened the packaging it was super hard to squeeze out the balm, but after a little warming up in my hands it was super easy. You only need a tiny amount for your lips less then half a pea, the texture is super thick but not 'gloopy' it also has no smell what so ever. Although I primarily use this on my lips it's meant to be great for cuticles, hair, feet and skin too which makes it a super versatile.
When on the lips it's not sticky or tacky feeling and actually feels really smooth. The colour I recieved is 'clear' but it also comes in a pink and red tinted options. It works well to prep your lips before lipstick application although I would probably put it on for 15 minutes before hand to give it time to soak in which it does, unlike most balms that sit on top of the lips. I leave this beside my bed and just before I go off to sleep and in the morning I wake up with really soft and nourished lips!
Have you ever tried Dr.Pawpaw? or have you got another favourite lip balm?
