Back in July, I attended the LDNmeetup Big Blogger Expo. If you want to read more about the day you can do so here. One of the brands exhibiting was Dr Paw Paw, producers of the UK’s first paw paw based balm.
I had used Dr Paw Paws original multi purpose balm in the past so was already familiar with the brand. As it turns out though I really wasn’t getting the most out of mine as I had only used it as a lip balm. Hah! Yes they told me off! We had a chat about the products and they gave me some tips on how I could experience the full benefits of using the balm, plus they kindly gave me some more to try out at home.
1. Cuticle balm – just a small drop of the original balm is enough to run into my cuticles to keep them looking healthy.
2. Brow fixing gel – Nothing else on hand to tame unruly brows? Not a problem if you have a tube of the original balm in your bag. As it is a clear balm it’s ideal for on holiday by the pool. You won’t be in danger of getting any nasty running brows either!
Soothing bites and dry patches – Got an irritating bite, minor burn or dry patch of skin? Paw Paw has antibacterial and anti microbiological properties so can help to smooth and heal.
Hair finishing serum – Got some lunchtime fly always? It’s okay you can fix them by running some balm through your hair. I was worried about it making my hair look greasy but it doesn’t.
Blusher – The tinted balms make gorgeous natural looking blushers. My favourite shade is the peach. As the tinted balms have the same formula as the original you can still use them for any emergency fixes.
As you can see this really isn’t just a ‘lip balm’ but a hugely versatile product to have on hand. Priced at just £6.95 for a generous 25ml tube it is great value for money and since it is now being stock in Superdrug it is accessible too.
