DR PAW PAW BALMS

18 comments


Dr Paw Paw balms worried me a bit at first, they're a multi purpose balm, but just how multi purpose can one product be? Luckily these 3 balms shocked me, they all have a few uses, some better than others but I just cannot get enough of these at the moment. At first I struggled so much to get product out of the tubes that it put me off using it, but I think the ends of mine were just a little dry. When I finally got into the product, I was desperate to try out all of their uses.

PEACH PINK BALM
The coloured balms have less uses due to their colour, so they're not as multi purpose as a clear balm, but they're still pretty handy! I've been using the balm as a lip and cheek tint and it's absolutely gorgeous on the lips and skin. It creates a gorgeous coral flushed look on the cheeks, and the staying power is incredible, it lasts pretty much all day, and fades evenly so no need to touch up. It creates a peachy pink shade on the lips, like your lips but better. It's a thick balm so a little goes a long way.

YELLOW CLEAR BALM
This balm can literally be used for anything. I've used it to keep my eyebrows in place after powder, I've used it to help nourish my split ends, I've used it on my knees and elbows to get rid of dry patches. I've never known a balm with so many uses. It makes a great lip balm too, which is always good. I recently started rubbing it in to my cuticles as my nails are so gross, and it's strengthened my nails and my cuticles are in much better condition. I find this balm very deeply conditioning, so again a little goes a long way otherwise it can get quite sticky.

RED BALM
It annoys me that these balms don't have names, red balm is such a boring thing to write. Again like the peachy coloured one, it has a tint to it so it's pretty limited to being a lip and cheek tint. I haven't tried this on my cheeks as I feel red is not a colour that works for me as I spend my life trying to get rid of my red cheeks. It's very pigmented though so makes a gorgeous lip balm, but if you apply too much it looks tacky, so applying lightly and building it up is keep.

The only thing I would change about these balms is the packaging, I really struggle to get product out some days and it's such a shame because it really puts me off using them, but they're so handy to have in your bag! 

What's your favourite multi purpose balm?

  2. I keep reading posts about these balms and I really really want to try the clear one- I'm not a fan of blusher or colour on my cheeks so the tinted ones would be pretty much pointless.

  3. I'm dying to try these balms - I've heard really good things about them. I have so much trouble with dry and cracked lips, but a lot of balms I've tried make them peel. Do you think this would help me?? Xxxx
