Back in September, I discovered this little beauty in my goodie bag at the Olympia Beauty Show. I've been trying and testing recently and I'm finally ready to review it for you! I've been enjoying it so much that I featured it in my October Favourites on my YouTube, which you can watch here.
What does the Dr. PAWPAW Balm do?
You may have heard of the original Dr. PAWPAW balm (it's in yellow packaging!), which claims to be for lips, skin, hair and even nail cuticles! Within the range, there are two new tinted versions, a red and this peachy pink one. I was so intrigued to try it, especially as it's fragrance free and made in Britain using natural papaya (paw paw), olive oil and aloe vera oil.
How does it feel?
The first thing I noticed is a little goes a really long way. A whole tube will last me ages! The product is quite thick but once blended, it almost melts into your skin. I tried this as a cheek blush a few times and I have to admit, I found it kind of sticky. I then tried it under foundation and it left a really lovely tint. However, I am completely in love with it as a lip tint. It leaves my dry, eczema prone lips feeling super soft, I've been reaching for it more than I thought. It's great on it's own however, I've been wearing it under my lipstick to help the colour pop even more.
Where can you buy it?
You can pick this up for £6.95 online at drpawpaw.com and across Harvey Nichols, Lloyd Pharmacies and Urban Outfitters stores.
I genuinely can't tell you just how soft my lips have been feeling. The Paw Paw/Papaya provides a rich source of vitamins to repair, moisturise and soothe and I love the slight peach colour. I'm now really tempted to get the original one for my collection!
