Lucas' Papaw Ointment

Went out to go get a few things and ended up buying Lucas' Papaw Ointment.
I remember I was always seeing this everywhere in shops, nothing more eye-catching than red and black packaging! So I was always whining about my super dry, cracking lips which were always in pain, I was asking people what lip balm or product to use and the answer would be Lucas' Papaw Ointment.

I got the 25g Tube since I was always using my brothers 75g Tub, I wanted to get my own to use. So I bought this at Target for $4.99.
The main ingredient in it is Carica Papaya aka papaw or pawpaw which has many healing properties.

"The ointment helps to relieve and cleanse"
I actually only use this on my lips so I haven't tested it out on the other stuff since I don't like the feeling of it on my skin. But this did help unchap my super dry cracked lips after a day of use!

When I first got this, I noticed the triangular shape caved into the lid I was a bit confuzzled.

But I realised the lid helped open up the cap attached to where the product comes out of. You just pop the lid on top of the cap and twist until it pops open.

To be honest I don't really like the packaging to the Papaw ointment, I thought it was a slanted applicator so it was easier to apply that's why I bought the tube and I also don't like using my finger to apply lipbalms cause I do have long nails so the product gets under my nails which I have to wipe off with a tissue.

The consistency was a like petroleum jelly (because it contains it) but feels light when applied on the lips, a little bit does go a long way.

I would repurchase this since it does work amazingly well, saved my lips as well!


  1. This is one product that I have yet to try, but I have heard SO MANY people rave about it! I get the driest lips throughout winter and and I'm actually surprised I haven't gone out to purchase this yet haha... but I will one day! I mean, there are just so many great reviews on it!
    Oh! And btw, a while ago, I used a mosiquito bite cream that had that triangle cap thing too and I had absolutely NO idea what to do with it D: ...even after I had taken the cap off- I was so clueless! But I was on a school camp and someone eventually told me haha x_x

    1. I was like that too before I bought this! you should really try it, works wonders :)
