Dr. Paw Paw Original Balm Review

I received a full-sized tube of the Dr. Paw Paw Original Balm in my July 2017 Glossybox and WOW is it nice.


What’s to love?

Before my Glossybox came I had never heard of this British brand (although they do have an online US store too).

The balm looks like Vaseline but has just a few ingredients. The main ingredient is fermented Pawpaw, the fruit of the plant Carica Papaya and it also has Olea Europaea (olive), Fruit Oil and aloe barbadensis leaf juice. It’s also fragrance free.

You can use it for dry irritated skin, lips, nails, cuticles and dry cracked skin. I actually lightly burned my earlobe with my flat iron (don’t ask) and it worked really well to heal the scab.

I am really loving this product and plan to get a few more things from Dr. Paw Paw, I am addicted!
