Dr Paw Paw...The Ultimate Summer Essential!

I can't express how delighted I was when this little tube of balmy goodness fell through my letterbox!
The Dr Paw Paw Original Balm* is the ultimate all rounder for all your beauty needs and it couldn't have arrived at a better time! I'm sure now that Summer has finally kicked in (well, kind of...will the rain ever stop?!), we're all suffering a little from dehydrated skin, dry lips and a few bites and stings here and there from all the horrible bugs! 
Dr Paw Paw is a relief from all that - and it actually works! I'm always a little dubious about products that claim to give you the world and change your life as I find I'm always left feeling severely underwhelmed, but after hearing many good reviews from other bloggers and plenty of popular magazines, I was excited to try this bad boy out!

I wasted no time at all applying this to my lips. Since my gym visits have become more frequent, so have the dreaded sweat-induced sore lips... YUM. My lips instantly felt hydrated which was fab, as the formula of this is comfortably tacky and it sticks around until moisture is restored. Next I tried this as an eye primer before putting on my concealer and while I didn't notice anything ground-breaking, my concealer did seem to stay put a bit longer than usual and I wasn't left with the dreaded mascara fall out - WIN!
Lastly, I decided to try this as a sort of overnight balm/mask combo on the dryest parts of my face 
and upon waking up in the morning I noticed all of my dehydration lines on my forehead were gone! 

My only criticism of this product is the tube isn't big enough! While I was sent a 10ml sample size, the full size tube is only 25ml, but at £6.75 (available from Look Fantastic and ASOS!) it's not a bad deal for such an all-rounder! It's also available in a couple of tinted cheek and lip shades which look verrrrrry pretty and may be making their way into my stash very soon!
