I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! Best lip balm ever! I'm constantly reaching for it. No other lip balms compete.
I will always continue buying this product!!
Best lip balm ever. I put it on at night and in the morning I have the best looking and feeling lips ever. There is residue, when I put on other lip balms over-night it leaves some on the inside of my mouth but this does not. Feels thin, but is really really moisturising. I buy one of the big round tubs lasts about five years its great. A little goes a long way.You should get some!!
MAAAN! I LOVE THIS STUFF!
I got first got the Papaw Ointment tube from Woolworths 2 years ago in Winter. Reason why I got it was because I was flaking around my mouth since it was Winter and my skin was starting to dry out, ESPECIALLY the mouth area. My friend handed me her Lucas tube and at first I didn't know what the red tube did. I've seen these tubes in my school mates' pencil cases throughout my high school years and I never knew what they were or what they did.
My friend said that it could help get rid of the flaking. And it really did. I rubbed a little on (you only need a LITTLEEE! It goes a long way) and I just felt the flakes come off.
The down side is that it does have that semi-greasy feeling that Vaseline gives you (which I really don't like), but I can get over it.
So I rushed to Woolworths and bought the sucker.
Ever since then I've been using it as an "intensive lip balm" at night time when my lips need serious care. And when I wake up, it still kind of has that feeling where there's a film on your lips with vaseline-like grease, but you can just get rid of it with tissue. And then, voila! Super soft lips.
You can use this as a lip balm in your daily basis, but I don't only because I don't like that vaseline-like feeling on my lips. And the way the ointment comes out of the tube isn't my favourite way of putting lip BALM on my lips. I tend to go for the chapsticks. Or whatever lip balm comes in stick form.
But if you can tolerate it, go for it. Bring it out with you for some soft lips! (And to take care of the Winter baddies). The packaging isn't huge, so it's totally good to put in your bag/purse. Although the packaging wouldn't originally catch my eye, I like how simple it is.
I haven't used this on cuts before, so I don't have any experience on that.
I usually have dry lips, and I tend to peel them a lot. It's a really bad habit. But this really saves me for an intensive night treatment!
It's not a CHEAP "lip balm" because it's around $5-6, but in the long run, you get your money's worth, trust me.
I've had mine for 2 years, and it's less than half way, but still doing me good!
Love this, much better than Vaseline products as it doesn't have that ultra greasy feel or nasty taste. My lips are plump and moisturised and lip colours now look so much better.
I remember all the popular girls used to use this when I was in high school. One day my mum bought a tube, I tried it and realised how nice it was!! Unfortunately it did not make me popular. I do however prefer it to anything else for my lips now. It's just simple and nice. I have a big tub at home a little tube that I carry in my bag with me (lost at the moment unfortunately, but I will hopefully be buying another at a later date). It's a bit like vaseline but much much better.
I have so many of these around the house - I really really love it! I've used this since high school and for me it is one of the HG multi-purpose products.
I use it mainly as a lip balm for when I get dry lips but I also use it on cuts and bites. I've even added it to moisturiser during winter when my skin gets dry.
This is a staple in most Australian households! There are so many imitation paw paw products around now - but for me, this is the original and the best.
I have been using this product for years! I always have a tube in my makeup draw, handbag and one sitting on my desk at work. This ointment is the best for dry lips, I find most other lip products leave my lips dry a few hours after, however lucus is perfect for repairing and moisturising my dry lips.
I also use this on dry skin on my face and body and find it really helps heel and repair the skin.
I have acne prone skin and when I have a popped a pimple that is drying out (gross I know) I use this ointment on the area after moisturising and before primer and I find it smooths out the skin and helps to avoid flaking and uneven skin tone.
Also when I do basic makeup days, this ointment is good to swipe over the eyelids with some mascara for a fresh glowing look.
Recommend this for all!
I really like this ointment!
I recently burnt my leg by spilling hot soup on it, a few days later when it started blistering and weeping, I decided to try of this on it and it was AMAZING.
My leg started healing up within a day or two. It made a very noticeable difference. Now two weeks on, my burn has nearly completely healed and it looks like it won't scar either, so that's even better!
I'd definitely reccommend this to anyone and everyone.
I'm Australian and have used this since high school - it's a great product. My friends used to use it on brows and lashed to encourage growth and also on lips, elbows and cuticles. I really like it. I know it has petroleum jelly in it but eh. You can buy another brand that it all natural and free from nasties like PJ but this product hasn't caused me any problems in the (probably) ten years I've been using it. It's great to take traveling and awesome to put on scars.
The price is great - I can get a tube for about $2 or a tub for about $10 and the packaging is kind of retro and modest. If you are up in arms about some vaseline in an unassuming stand by product then ok, but there are far worse things in shampoos, hand soaps, moisturisers and cleansers than some plain old PJ! My grandma used to cleanse with vaseline and her skin was ace so... high horse ready to dismount!
I really wanted to like this product as it is so unpretentious and natural, but it just makes my lips raw and sore, long-term.
If you have a date coming up where you want super soft, kissable lips, this is definitely the product for you, but the second you stop using it obsessively your lips just go into dryness overdrive, as if it actually causes your lips to forget how to self-moisturise.
