The team at bbHQ have decided to welcome in the new month with soft and replenished lips! But of course, your pout can feel this amazing every month of the year with Natralus Natural Paw Paw Ointment, which is our last featured item in Feb’s box! And there is a reason why we have left one of the best (and our most favourite) beauty product til last!
Now, I know we've all heard about paw paw, as it is included in many popular beauty staples and can be found in just about every girl’s makeup bag… but I feel that it is my duty to tell you exactly what it is, and what all the fuss is about!
Carica Papaya (or Paw Paw) grows from a tropical fruit tree, native to South America. It is a rich source of antioxidants, including vitamins A and C, and when eaten, the delicious fruit can act as an aid for digestion (reducing bloating and heartburn). However, here at bb we prefer to use it on our lips!
Natralus Natural Paw Paw works well over the top of or underneath your favourite shade of lippy, adding shine and moisture. Or simply, apply by itself to protect and repair chapped or cracked lips and turn that frown into a smile!
Paw paw also offers antibacterial and antimicrobial elements, helping relieve and restore dry, itchy, or irritated skin, minor cuts and wounds and even sunburn! Rough patches of skin near your elbows and knees will feel and look noticeably smoother after just a few applications, while Natralus can also be used on and around cuticles after your DIY mani.
Better yet, Natralus has manufactured a unique formula that excludes petrochemicals (chemicals from petroleum and natural gases, yuck!) and has more than double the Papaya compared to most leading brands in Australia. What’s not to love? And speaking of loves, check out this awesome Paw Paw ice cream recipe we found at straightfromthefarm.net! Perfect for the last sunny (or if you are in Melbourne - super hot) days of Autumn.
