These little balms are coming in super handy during winter and I recently received a Paw Paw. Balm and loved using it and the super thick consistency makes this perfect for hydrating dry hands. After posting this on my instagram another similar brand to the Papaya Gold line got in touch called Dr.PAWPAW and these balms are very similar in consistency and results.
Tinted Peach Pink Balm: Dr.PAWPAW c/o
This peach tinted balm is part of Dr.PAWPAWS new tinted line alongside the “ultimate red balm” which I will also be reviewing soon for you 🙂 These balms are made here in the UK compared to the Papaya Gold, which originates from Australia and the concept of these balms! Each one is fragrance free and packed full of natural ingredients and they also have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, making this the perfect handbag essential at this time of year for combating bacteria and keeping your hands super soft. You would never have thought this little balm would last ages but it really does! You only need the smallest amount because the texture is very thick, and spreads evenly once applied to the skin to create a generous barrier on the skin to protect and hydrate.
It works great on my lips and dries almost instantly, without leaving a sticky residue, which is perfect if you have long hair. These work wonders for dry skin and lips and the tint gives a nice finish if you’re looking for natural looking make-up, that can be used for many different things making it great value for money too! You can pick these up from the main website and high end retailers such as Harvey Nichols and Urban Outfitters. I have used this on my cheeks (see photo above) and it gives a nice natural barley their finish, but I did find it slightly sticky and think it works much better on my lips. If you have dry/normal skin this might work great as a blusher but unfortunately I have more oily skin so it left my cheeks slightly sticky.
What’s your thoughts on this balm?
