Overall Thoughts

What does the Dr. PAWPAW Balm do?

Dr.PAWPAW Lip Balms are a multipurpose balm used for your lips, skin, cuticles, and nails.

I tried applying the tinted lip balm  as a cheek blush and its pretty amazing how versatile this small tube can be. The product is sort of sticky, however blending it well and applying it before your foundation gives you a natural flushed look. I do prefer to use it on my lips as a balm only as this is where I need it most. It hydrates, protects and soothes your lips. I carry the Dr. PAWPAW Pink Peach Tinted Lip Balm in my handbag and apply it throughout the day to add lovely colour to my lips.

How does it feel?

The first thing I noticed is a little goes a long way and the tube can last up to 6 months depending how frequently you use it. The product is quite thick but once blended, it almost melts into your skin. It leaves my dry, chapped prone lips feeling super soft, I’ve been reaching for it more than I thought. It’s great on it’s own however, I’ve also been wearing it under my lipstick to help the colour pop even more.

The Paw Paw provides a rich source of vitamins to repair, moisturize and soothe and I love the slight peach colour. I’m very tempted to get the original one for my collection.
