So there’s only 38 days left until my honeymoon and, of course, I’ve already started to fill my suitcase with lots of Primark goodies. Like most stereotypical girls, I have a tendency to overpack and this year I’m on a mission to avoid my usual airport check-in panic (baggage allowances are not my friend!). This Summer I’m all about down-sizing, packing only the essentials and leaving enough space in my suitcase for a hefty duty-free/Victoria Secret/Sephora haul. One way I’m lightening my luggage this year is by purchasing travel-sized versions of my beauty favourites such as the REN Grab and Go Kit Face & Body Skincare Set from John Lewis, another way is to invest in some high-quality multi-purpose products, such as the Dr Paw Paw Soothing Original Balm* (£6.95/25ml).
This beauty balm is the perfect travel buddy for all your holiday or festival needs this Summer. Made in the UK and containing a blend of natural ingredients, including Paw Paw (a natural healing remedy), olive oil and Aloe Vera, the multi-purpose formula can be carried around at all times in this convenient 25ml tube to solve all your beauty dilemmas at a moments notice. The balm can be used as a lip balm, a hair conditioner, a cuticle and nail treatment, a makeup primer, a soothing sun burn reliever, a moisturiser, a cracked heel treatment, an unruly eyebrow tamer- the possibilities are endless! No wonder this little yellow tube is quickly becoming a bit of a cult classic in the beauty industry.
The clear formula is fragrance-free and very thick, so it can be a little tricky to squeeze out of the tube at times but as soon as it starts to warms up in your hands it’s a dream to apply. The balm skins into my skin creating a long-lasting, hydrating barrier, perfect for pampering my dry, cracked and weather-beaten lips, plus is gives them a beautiful glossy finish. If it couldn’t get any better, the Dr Paw Paw beauty balm is also available in Peach Pink and Red, which contain all the properties of the original balm with a subtle tint of colour which can be used on your lips and cheeks.
The Dr Paw Paw Multipurpose Beauty Balm retails for only £6.95 and is available at Urban Outfitters, Harvey Nichols and ASOS.0
