Dr PawPaw Original Balm: A Soothing Skincare Must-Have

Having spent the last three weeks over-indulging in every way humanly possible, combined with lack of sleep and multiple occasions when I forgot to remove my makeup (please forgive me,) my skin reacted in the only way it new how: by breaking out in the hugest spot ever seen. Constant fiddling and a pair of tweezers later, I was left with the inevitable aftermath of a sore red bump that was going to turn into a dry crater during the healing process. Knowing that New Years Eve was around the corner (and that volcanoes on chins are so not 2014,) I reached for a little yellow tube that I’d had waiting to be used for a number of weeks. The results were surprising…

The yellow tube in question, Dr PawPaw, is a multi-purpose soothing
balm with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. The formula
features the soothing properties of fermented Pawpaw, the nutrient-rich
Papaya (which is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which aid
skin repair,) anti-inflammatory Olive Fruit Oil and Aloe Barbadenis Leaf
Juice: an excellent ingredient for skin cleansing and toning, which
also helps promote skin regeneration and restores moisture to skin. The
clear balm melts when applied to skin and is absorbed relatively quickly
to leave the goodness to work its magic. I used this on my dry
post-spot chin and applied 2-3 times a day for three days – it really
helped to soothe the area, promote healing and minimise the dryness I
usually would experience.

Although an epic spot would
normally take a week to heal, using Dr PawPaw I reduced this by at least
half. The skin has healed a lot more effectively than I would normally
expect, leaving only a teeny tiny blemish behind that will fade in the
coming days. Because of the natural ingredients the balm didn’t burn or
irritate an open wound, nor did feel uncomfortable or greasy on the skin. Not only can Dr PawPaw be used on extremely dry areas and troublesome spots, but as a lip balm, moisturiser, cuticle cream or in the treatment of eczema and dermatitis. It’s basically an all-round family favourite that can be whipped out whenever a need arises. I thought that this tube would cost a fair few quid, but it’s actually only £6.95 for this giant tube – a total bargain! I know what I’ll be turning to the next time I have an eruption on my face…

Dr PawPaw is available online currently priced at £6.95 for a 25ml tube.
