Dr PawPaw

   
A few weeks ago I was sent a sample of a new lip balm to test out, Dr PawPaw. I'd never heard of the brand before but I was intrigued as it claimed to be a multipurpose product acting as a moisturizer, hair product, and a cuticle and nail cream. 

Dr PawPaw lip balm is a British made product that uses mostly natural ingredients and doesn't test on animals. The balm has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and includes ingredients that help repair skin, help retain moisture and have anti-inflammatory properties.




So what do I think of it? I've been using Dr PawPaw for a couple of weeks now and I've really taken a shine to it. Its a handy little product that is very easy to use and leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturized. Unlike other lip balms I have been using lately, Dr PawPaw comes in a tube not a tin so application is easy as I don't have to apply it with my fingers. I also feel that this makes the product more hygienic than lip balms in tins. Over the last few weeks I've barely left home without this lip balm as its such a good quality and I love using it on the go.

As Dr PawPaw is a multipurpose product I decided to try it out on the very ends of my hair. On the tube it claims to moisturize hair, lips, hands and heels so I thought I would put it to the test. I applied a small amount to the tips of my hair and I was very surprised just how quickly it sank in and it left my hair looking shiny, but not greasy. Although it made my hair look healthier I feel like this is more of a quick fix and there are many other products on the market that would give you better results. 
I also used this product as a hand cream and I was quite pleased with the temporary results however I wouldn't use it as a long term solution as there are more effective products available. 



The product itself is quite aesthetically pleasing, its a cute bright colored tube that would be hard to loose in your handbag. Although it comes in a very vivid shade of yellow I don't feel like there is anything tacky looking about this lip balm and I actually think it has an up market feel about it. I also think its a great size product to just keep in your handbag and they do a giant sized version you can leave at home.

All in all I've come to love the Dr PawPaw lip balm. I wouldn't use it as a hand cream, hair product or general moisturizer but as lip balm it really does the job. I do think its a little pricey considering there are similar products on the market for less, but good quality products don't come cheap and I would consider repurchasing this again. Overall its a nice little beauty product and I would give it a 8/10

Have you ever tried any of the Dr PawPaw range? What did you think?

Thanks for reading!
