Aloha friends! If you’ve been following me for awhile you’ll already know how much I love Lucas Pawpaw Ointment. I use it every day whether I’m wearing makeup or not, no matter what, it fits into my daily routine. Not only that, but I bring it with me almost everywhere I go because it’s just SO DARN USEFUL. Let’s get started.
What it is: I use it as a lip care product. I use it if my lips are dry as a moisturizer and I use it as a base under all my lip products to make sure they don’t try out my lips and so that they have a nice finish to them. It also looks nice without any other products on top, so some days when I’m going for a more natural look I’ll just use this – it just gives a nice, glossy, fresh look. 🙂
This is what it looks like:
Its ingredients: Fresh fermented carica papaya, and 0.1mg of potassium sorbate as a preservative. Very natural stuff.
This picture (as you can see) was taken on one of my hikes when we stopped for a little rest. I bring this on every single one of my hikes because as well as being a great lip care product, Lucas Pawpaw Ointment is also great for any kind of nature-related emergency.
Its other uses: On the back of the bottle it’s described as “a local topical application for boils, burns, chafing, cuts, cracked skin, gravel rash, splinters, open wounds, insect bites, and nappy rash.” Clearly, it’s the kind of stuff you want with you on any kind of camping trip. Obviously it won’t be able to single handedly cure all these things but it will be able to help a little until you get the help you need, so I always bring it. Also because the darn black flies love to eat me 😦
What I love about it: It actually works really well. I got it from a friend for my birthday after we bonded over our love for Alexa Chung, and in her book it she references this and how she uses it for chapped lips, and I have chapped lips! Quite a thoughtful gift actually. This was two birthdays ago now, and I’m still on my first bottle, and it still has the same smell/consistency and works just as well as it always has so I’m assuming it hasn’t gone bad yet. It has a good lasting power as well, I only put it on once, maybe twice a day and my lips are usually left quite refreshed and soft (as long as I’ve been exfoliating as well, it’s not really magical after all).
If you like the whole hiking thing, I did a vlog for this hike and it was really beautiful so if you would like to check that out just click here.
If you would like to try it out, obviously it comes highly recommended from myself, and you can buy it on Amazon. 🙂 Let me know if you have a holy grail lip product! I have such horribly dry lips that I’m still always on the lookout for new stuff.
Hope you enjoyed!
