Dr Paw Paw Review

Hello My Lovelies,

Back in July I wrote a blog post all about Papaya Gold Paw Paw balm and I inadvertently tagged Dr Paw Paw on twitter asking them to read my post- they kindly let me know that I had mixed the two companies up and asked if I wanted to review their version too... Well I didn't need to be asked twice as I love paw paw balms!

There are not many major differences between the two other than Papaya Gold is the Australian version and Dr Paw Paw is the UK version. The other difference is the packaging, Papaya Gold comes in a red tube with black writing and Dr Paw Paw comes in a light yellow packaging.

Now for the product: There aren't any differences between the consistency of the Dr Paw Paw and the Papaya Gold that I can see or feel, the Dr Paw Paw is just as lovely, a light serum very close to the feel of Vaseline and can be used on lips, cuticles and nails. I will definitely be using this all winter on my lips, to keep them smooth and chap free.

The price point is £6.95 and with Dr Paw Paw you get 25ml of product, which is a little more than the Papaya Gold but still a decent affordable price.

Given a choice between the Papaya Gold and Dr Paw Paw I would always repurchase the Dr Paw Paw as it's British brand and I personally like to support local and national brands where ever possible.
I can't wait to get my hands on the new tinted Dr Paw Paw as that looks just as fab!

Have you tried Dr Paw Paw-let me know in the comments!

Till next time,
