Nature's Care Paw Paw Lip Balm


I don't know about you, but whenever I walked around Priceline I always notice this, hanging on the lip balm  wall (what I call the area in Priceline full of Lip Balms) it always seemed to catch my eyes, in its lovely pink packaging. But I never stopped to see what it was, but when I was researching Paw Paw ointments I found out what the pink thing in the lip balm wall was, and I decided to go try it out.


Bought this for $2.96, compared to the Lucas Papaw Ointment, it's a lot cheaper!
I've also heard that it works wonders just like the Lucas Papaw Ointment though it doesn't contain Petroleum Jelly.

The ingredients & Directions

When you take it out of the box, it did surprise me a little, since it was a lot smaller then I thought it would be. Perfect to throw into your pocket or bag when you go out though!


when you opened the cap, the applicator is slanted. What I like to look for is slanted applicators when it comes to these. It's a lot easier to apply since you don't need your fingers, I usually like to have long nails so it comes in handy.


Now when it comes to the product, it comes out as a oily sticky liquid, but when its colder the product becomes a bit like petroleum jelly, but still looks like oil when applied on the lips. I didn't really like the feeling since it just felt like you had oil on your lips, but what I did like what the smell, smelt strongly of mango, but don't get fooled by the smell because it tasted the opposite, it wasn't disgustingly bad just tasted...meh.
Now it stated that it "Soothes dry and chapped lips naturally" and yes I agree to that only if you kept reapplying it, it didn't work instantly or the day after, it worked slowly for me compared to Lucas Papaw Ointment. Which is why I wouldn't repurchase this but it comes to good use to keep the lips moisturised.

  1. I've seen this around too but haven't gotten around to trying it! The packaging is so cute :) I didn't expect it to have a scent to it! I'm loving the Coco Island's pawpaw ointment with manuka honey which I like better than the Lucas Papaw, have a look for it! :)

    1. It smells so good! I would probably only repurchase this for the smell haha :)
      Thanks for the suggestion, I'll pick it up whenever I see it! :)

  2. I 100% agree, the reason it isn't as good as Lucas Papaw is because it isn't made from 100% papaw ointment, it's a mix of different extracts. I see a lot of people opt to buy this product because it's cheaper thinking that they will get the same thing, and later are disappointed. Great post! SS x

    1. That explains the very slow working ability, it's just a waste of money if you ask me, just add a few more dollars and you can get the Lucas Pawpaw. :/
