|Paw Paw Papaya Moisturizing Balm (c/o PapayaGold)|
Suitable for children as well as adults, Paw Paw Moisturising Balm can also be used by people who suffer from eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. The Paw Paw fruit contains the enzyme Papain, known to be anti-inflamatory. This balm can also be used to soothe burns and cuts and can even reduce inflammation caused by some diseases including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Paw Paw Moisturising Balm is also made with Bio Active Manuka Honey (20+) which offers antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits. In short, it's a bit of a miracle in a tube...
Paw Paw is currently taking up real estate in my handbag as well as by my bedside. Perfect for relieving and moisturizing dry, sensitive, chaffed or irritated skin, I find I love this product the most for my feet. I struggle with super dry skin on my feet, particularly around my heels. I simply apply this magic balm to my feet and put on a pair of light cotton socks before bed and after just 2 or 3 nights, I find that my feet are once again smooth and soft. I also love this for soothing a sunburn, softening up the dry skin on my T-zone, chapped lips, dry hands, scaly elbows and even my knees, which are sometimes more dry than I'd like. It doesn't really have a smell, in fact it's almost odorless and it's not at all oily or greasy once it's been rubbed in, so there's no worry about ruining the sheets or your clothes as there is when using coconut oil. My only complaint about this product is that I wish I could buy it by the 5 gallon bucket because it's so amazing, however the small tube makes it easy enough to travel with and a little really does go a long way.
PapayaGold Paw Paw Moisturising Balm is a great product and I'd definitely recommend having it on hand, particularly for anyone who has super dry skin problem areas like I do with my feet, T-zone, knees and elbows. It really is a lifesaver and at just £5.99, it's a bargain too! Paw Paw Moisturising Balm can be found in Boots, but is also available directly from Papaya Gold where there is currently a 3 for 2 offer.
