My Winter Skin Saviour- Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment

Lucas' PawPaw Ointment

This does slightly contravene my plight to use mostly natural ingredients, as you can see from the list below it does contain petroleum jelly (slap wrist).

Active Ingredients:    The ointment contains 39mg/gm of fresh fermented paw paw, unguent Carica Papaya L, and 0.1mg/g of potassium sorbate as a preservative.    petroleum jelly based.

However I forgive you Lucas because your ointment is the absolute DON. There is not another word for it.  

I use this on my lips, my nose, my hands as a handcream, my feet and dry heels, cuticles, elbows, bites and stings, crusty cold sores (mm sexy) and any dry or chafed area.  It has worked on everyone that I have tried it on and I do regularly try and slap it on people at work and get them hooked on  it as well. It has been found that the antiseptic properties of the pawpaw accelerate the healing of wounds which, I assume, is why it is so amazing.

The tube is my preferred packaging as it makes it really easy to apply. In this freezing weather I would rub the tube between my hands before applying otherwise it will solidify slightly and be a bit too difficult to apply.

I have just ordered what will be my fifth tube this year although only my 3rd from http://www.pawpawshop.co.uk  who only charge £3.95 for this in it's tube form. A tube lasts me about 3 months if I am not attacking other people with it (which I do tend to do).

This is one of my all time top tips and top beauty products that I recommend. Get in there!


  1. That sounds like a great product, I've been glued to my elizabeth arden 8 hour cream - this sounds like it does a similar job at a fraction of the price!

  2. you enabler, you!!! *slaps wrists* :P

  3. Isn't this the best product ever? I use Vaseline normally but this is so much more appealing and smells lovely too despite being described as "fermented" fruit (:

    Only thing is, I'm on holiday back home in Sri Lanka (I normally study in Adelaide) and it really does NOT do well in tropical countries. Must be the fermented fruit coming into play because it's completely oily and goopy ): So Vaseline in that way holds itself much better.


  4. i got this when i was in Australia and i swear by it! i bought 2 tubes, and will repurchase it for probably the rest of my life haha! x

  5. This is going on my "to try" list!

    Looks great! x

  6. Thank you for the recommendation. I need to get on it and get some for my sore hands. I definitely think it would be good to use under my super sexy TBS gloves!

  7. I use Lucas' Papaw Ointent everyday on my lips, its is definitely a winter saviour.
