Let me tell you about one of my favourite things..
It’s not very often that I try a cult-beauty product that has been around on zillions of blogs; Dr Paw Paw is essentially a multi-purpose balm, which can do various different things. I was intrigued, tried it, and it goes everywhere with me. (Click here to view.)
I like it as it doesn’t play havoc with my senses-as Aspergers 🙂 – so, therefore, I thought sharing a few ‘hacks’ as to what to do with it would make a family decent blog post.
1.Just an ordinary lip balm.
Because where would be otherwise, without stating the most absolutely obvious? This can be used for chapped lips-just squeeze out a tiny bit, as it goes a long way (I cannot stress this enough), and away you go.
2. Cheek tint.
Because apparently people like this? (Although not personally for me, as it’s a bit to heavy and greasy to do that.) Use it as a blush, but sparingly, and rub it over the apples of your cheeks.
3. Tame those eyebrows!
I have curly hair. And something that my family love to do is point this out about my eyebrows. (I hate having them plucked; so painful?) Just use some Dr Paw Paw to save the effort.
4. As an emergency.
So, this isn’t one that I would recommend; as a disclaimer, always wear sun tan lotion, and take care not to get burnt. Basically, I was with a friend, they had seemingly gotten a little bit burnt; I used my Dr Paw Paw as an emergency measure. All the shops were closing, so we couldn’t obtain the proper stuff! (Best not get yourself in that situation in the first place, right?!)
5. Shoes and blisters.
New shoes blistering? Rub some balm on that!
6. New glasses.
Due to dropping my glasses, I was prescribed a new pair the same day; but they hadn’t really been measured properly, and were continually rubbing my ears raw. They’ve virtually all been sorted as I write this, but in the intervening week, I used a lot of Dr Paw Paw, as well as some Washi Tape to cushion them.
7. Hand cream.
Dry hands? Use some Dr Paw Paw as a hand cream!
8. Wanna friend?
Give a tube to a Blogger! They will be your best friend forever.. (Okay, bit of a jokey one, that.)
9. Take care of your hands!
If your bite your nails, or just pick at your fingers (hello, anxious me!), this is ideal; rub just a teeny tiny bit of Doctor Paw Paw on a hangnail, and it stops the skin catching.
Virtually all of these I have tried and tested; what are your ‘Hacks’?
