When we think about a multipurpose balm or a cosmetic product we always think of Vaseline. Vaseline has been a staple for almost every woman. From hydrating dry skin to chapped lips, Vaseline worked wonders in many ways. But recently, I came across a new multipurpose balm that I am totally in love with. Dr. Paw Paw is a multipurpose balm which can be used in various ways like for chapped lips, dry skin, as a makeup base, to smoothen out fly away hair, hydrate dull and dry hair, repair split ends, and as a cuticle balm amongst other things.
Dr Paw Paw has been an instant success with several makeup artist, celebrities and bloggers since its launch in 2013. The brand offers 4 variants, the original, tinted Peach pink balm, tinted ultimate red balm and a limited edition red sparkle.
The original is a clear balm which comes in a yellow coloured tube. It is an all-purpose balm which can be used for dry patches, elbows, lips, hair setting like fly away, or on your eye lid as a shiner.
The tinted peach pink balm is a good lip balm with a hint of a peach colour to it. The best part about this shade is that it also doubles up as a wonderful tinted blush. It is a very subtle colour.
My all time favourite out of the 4 is the tinted red balm. I love the colour and it is so versatile that you can wear with almost any outfit at anytime of the day. The colour has a depth and is perfect for my skin tone. The colour would also suit any woman with a dusky or pale skin tone. Those who are too shy to try a bold matte red lipstick can definitely try this tinted lip balm to begin with. Even this lip balm can double up as a blush for a warmer makeup palette.
The limited edition red sparkle is a great addition to the Dr. Paw Paw collection. I am really excited to try it one of these days for a night out, cinema visits or a dinner.
Dr Paw Paw is made from all natural ingredients which are beneficial for the skin. The balms contain extracts from the carica papaya fruit, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, aloe vera leaf juice, medicinal grade petrolatum and potassium sorbate. These ingredients are nutrient rich and have a variety of benefits for the hair and skin. The concentration of the product is thick, so you only need to apply a little. Thus the product is long lasting. I also love the packing of the product, as I don’t like the stick shaped lip balms. Tube shaped balms are much better, but sometimes you also end up pressing a lot of product out.
Overall I love this product and highly recommend it. It is an instant favourite with good quality, quantity and packaging for the price. The moment I tried it on I was excited to share my reviews with everyone.
