Dr Paw Paw Original Balm | Review

Hi Lovelies, I hope everyone is well! 
My blogging schedule is all over the place at the moment and I have to apologise for that but I have been so busy over the past few weeks; firstly we are preparing for Ramadan which is less than a week away and also preparing for a big family wedding which is in July, so yes a bit of hectic schedule  but here i am now and fingers crossed will be more often to share more blog posts. 

Dr Paw Paw is a brand I have been wanting to try for a while now because so many people have been saying that this balm is brilliant and I wanted to see if that claim was true, so it was only a matter of time before I got this for myself to try and see if all the talk was true. The brand is British and is made from a variety of natural ingredients to make this multi purpose balm.
The balm has a gorgeous bright yellow packaging and comes in a travel friendly size of 25ml so its very handy to carry with you in your bag. It has very few ingredients in this which is quite nice to see because sometimes you see beauty products and the ingredients list is massive!
Key Ingredients 
Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice 
Aloe vera contains enzymes, antioxidant vitamins,  minerals and four fatty acids. The benefits it has for skin are extraordinary and is very good at retaining moisture to skin, lips and hair. Its just one of those things that have various benefits. I also love to use aloe vera as a toner because its very soothing on the skin.
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil
We all know the many benefits of olive oil as food but its also something that is very good for our skin and hair too. It contains vitamin E which helps restore skins softness and has anti ageing benefits  as it doesn't clog the pores and helps get rid of the dead blood cells which can make skin more glowing and radiant.
Carica Papaya
We all know that papaya is a nutrient dense fruit with high vitamin C content but did we all know it has amazing benefits for the skin too? Well its very good at cleansing skin, exfoliating skin and is supposedly ok for sensitive skin ( best to do a skin patch test first though)

Uses
This balm is mainly marketed as a lip balm but it also has so many other uses too  and I have tried a few of them to put them to the test to see how they all faired out.
Lips 
If you have dry lips or want softer lips then this balm is perfect for them jobs. I like to use it before I put a lipstick on because it creates a smoother base for the lipstick to sit on and in turn making my lipstick last so much longer.
Skin irritations and sunburn 
This balm is know for it's healing properties so its very good for helping with these. I have been out and forgot sun tan lotion and my neck was a little red and this was great for soothing my skin ( don't forget to wear sun protection everyone! Its very important!)
Hair/Brow Conditioning treatment 
I am not sure on how well this will work because the tube is quite small but its great for keeping stray hairs in my hairstyles still and its also good at keeping my brows in shape all day long! it will save me a fortune in the long run because brow products seem to cost a fortune don't you think?
Nappy Cream 
Because this product is so natural its ideal to use if you prefer natural products. Its handy size is perfect for carrying around in bags too.

My Thoughts
The first thing I noticed when I opened this was how thick the cream was (pic above of balm) Once it was in my hands it melted a little bit and was so much easier to work with and a little bit went a long way too. It has no particular scent at all which kinda shocked me a little bit because of the ingredients I was thinking it might smell a little tropical but with that being said its great its fragrance free, that way it doesn't interfere with the perfumes and moisturisers I like to wear.

I have used this product for a fair number of uses because it is a multi use balm I really want to see how multi use this product could be.
Caesarean scar
I have 3 children and with each child I have a caesarean and my scar has gotten a little thicker each time and sometimes during the warmer months especially my scar can be quite itchy and when it does it gets annoying, so I decided to give this a try and its worked wonders for me keeping it soothed and also very moisturised too.
Callus from lifting weights 
My boyfriend is a personal trainer and also a student wrestler so he lifts a lot of weights to help him keep him at the body goals he wants and also to keep him strong, the slight problem he has is the hard skin on his hands which is caused by the olympic bar. I have been putting this on his hands everyday since I bought this 2 weeks ago and its helped his skin quite drastically on his hands, not that its gone but that they are so much smoother which is a brilliant result in itself.



I this is a brilliant product and for me is now a skincare staple, its very affordable at £6.95. I have started to carry this round with me because it has many uses and you never know when you need something that works this well. Dr Paw Paw comes in original balm and tinted, they also have a bigger 200ml bottle and an all in 7 treatment styler.

Available in supedrug stores online and also on the Dr Paw Paw website. I have a link below for anyone interested in knowing more about the brand and the products
