No doubt most of you have heard of Lucas Paw Paw Ointment and although this product has been around for a number of years now it is definitely worth a revisit, if only to highlight how this product is a great all-rounder. Available in jars or an easy to carry on-the-go tube it is a great addition to your handbag.
For those that may not have come across this product it is owned and produced locally in Australia and can help with a vast array of problems that we all experience. The product is made from Paw Paws or Papaya, depending on what you call your fruits. It has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which basically means it is a natural product that can help both heal and clean. The vast array of applications can include treatment of sunburn, minor burns and nappy rash (for more information visit their website here).
I have recently discovered again just how wonderful this product can be. We all suffer the ravages of winter with cracked lips as well as dry and cracked skin. Despite following much of the beauty advice available on the web, in magazines or on television I still suffer dry skin on my face, which can become particularly noticeable once makeup is applied. To exacerbate the problem many products can lead to break outs and bumpy skin.
In an act of beauty desperation I turned to the Paw Paw Ointment and was pleasantly surprised. A little of this product dabbed onto the forehead over a few days has led to dry skin clearing up without the repercussions of a breakout. With no shininess or stickiness a few minutes after application it served as a great base for makeup application.
Additionally my lips are now nice and smooth, rather than terribly dry and cracked. A small application to the back of the hands and the tops of feet has also ensured smooth skin with no oiliness.
After many years of not using this product a tube will now stay in my handbag as a product that can repair all matter of beauty sins. A great product that is not only useful but cheap.
