Dr PawPaw: The Multi-Functional Balm Every Woman Needs (PLUS Take Advantage Of A Very Special QVC Offer!)

Since its launch in November 2013, Dr.PAWPAW has become a go-to product for beauty enthusiasts, busy mums and those suffering with annoying dry patches on their bodies. The only PawPaw based balm that’s made in the UK, Dr.PAWPAW has seen huge success in a short space of time – gaining fans in the likes of Jo Whiley, Rochelle Humes, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Glamour’s beauty editor Alessandra Steinherr. This multi-purpose soothing balm offers antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, making it more than just another Eight Hour Cream substitute. The formula features the soothing properties of fermented Pawpaw, the nutrient-rich Papaya (which is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to aid skin repair,) anti-inflammatory Olive Fruit Oil and Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice (an excellent ingredient to promote skin regeneration and restore moisture.)

Australians love the power of PawPaw, with a balm or ointment appearing in most homes bathrooms; the founders of the brand identified an opportunity to bring this cult product to the UK, and Dr.PAWPAW was born! However, this is not just another skincare product – the fashion and retail elite have seen the appeal of these little tubes and it’s now stocked in stores including TopShop, Urban Outfitters, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. Having had countless nominations and awards and becoming a staple in kits of celebrity MUAs, it’s no surprise these little tubes are causing quite the hoohah. I’ve used it to soothe skin after hormonal breakouts, to add a subtle shine to the tops of my cheekbones, restore my otherwise unsightly cuticles and to add a touch of something to my lips (especially thanks to the launch of the red and pink variants for colour and care in one!) The non-fragranced formula is extremely gentle, while the moisture restoring and youth inducing Aloe Vera plant is used to soothe the skin and prevent irritation; it leaves skin feeling cared for and relieved instantly.

Pauline Paterson, the founder of Dr.PAWPAW, will be on QVC this coming Wednesday (30th September,) explaining why it should become as staple not only amongst beauty professionals, but within the family home. Describing its multipurpose uses and benefits, the aim is to educate and impress viewers with the great results this simple product has to offer – plus there will be a special multi-buy discount available where you can pick up all three tubes for only £18.00. You can take advantage of this during the show, and also online here right now, stocking up on a firm favorite of beauty experts and celebs alike. It’s definitely worth investing in the innovative peach and red tubes, which offer a wearable tint for the lips – perfect in the forthcoming Autumn months when you want to care for your lips, but not pass up on an opportunity to add a touch of colour. What are you waiting for? There’s a reason why it’s an award winner…

    I have never heard of these before but they sound amazing. I often have red dry skin so it could really help with calming my skin down. I will be looking to buy these on payday this week!Lauren x | http://www.laurenapowers.blogspot.com

    The main ingredient is petrolatum. You wrote a post on 17th September stating how terrible mineral oil and its derivatives (inc petrolatum) are for skin. You stated in that post that mineral oil is pore blocking and causes acne yet, in this post, you suggest using this ointment to soothe hormonal breakouts. The result would be horrendous! Do your research before recommending things to people who may hang on your every word and not research for themselves. I suppose mineral oil is fine as long as you're being paid to say so and have a short memory!

      Hi Rebecca. Thanks for your comment. Yes one of the main ingredients is petroleum, but crucially it's not the ONLY ingredient. There's a huge difference in using Vaseline and a product that CONTAINS petroleum. I also made it clear in my previous posts that using mineral oil and/or petroleum is a personal choice – it's about understanding what that product is and what it really does. I've written about Dr PawPaw twice before, having used it on spots and seen really great results (have a look in the archives and you can read for yourself) and liking the result of the tinted products for achieving a subtle tint. Being paid to feature an offer to help drum up support for a homegrown British brand that's launching on QVC has nothing to do with buying my opinion or changing my mind.

    I absolutely love PawPaw! I also use it on my lips and cuticles, and I use it on my knees after I shave as they get very dry. I've never seen the tinted ones in Australia — I'll be on the lookout!mybeautydreamss.blogspot.com

    I'd forgotten all about this. I used Dr Paw Paw on dry and irritated skin whilst backpakcing in Australia (10 years ago!!! Eek) It was fantastic. Can't believe I've missed this! Thanks for posting. Nicola

    My friend has been raving about this product to me – I definitely have to try this now! I was thinking Paw Paw was the same as Prickly Pear but it's actually Papaya! The Jungly Book was confusing me 😉 x
