TOPO PAW PAW Ointment- Review

Hey Guys,

You must be wondering what the hell is a Paw Paw ointment? Well I was wondering the same thing till a few days ago when my dear friend SpexySrish gifted me TOPO’s Paw Paw Ointment. Basically this is Australia’s cult product. For over 100 years every Australian has been slapping this ointment on their lips.

What is a Paw Paw Ointment?

A Paw paw ointment is made of a few ingredients like Petrolatum, Carica Papaya(papaws) Fruit Extract, Beeswax and Potassium Sorbate.

The active ingredient is created by using a fermentation process to concentrate the enzymes from Australian papaws, rather than using a processed papaw powder from overseas. The freshly fermented papaw has healing properties which are very potent and has to be carefully balanced or it will be too strong for human use. The papaw is used to draw out impurities and has antiseptic qualities, while the petroleum jelly helps to heal.IMG_6680.jpgIMG_6685.jpg

Controversies surrounding Paw Paw Ointment:-

Many people believe the paw paw ointment to be a glorified and expensive petroleum jelly. There have been so many blog posts claiming to expose the truth about paw paw ointment but still, this ointment continues to be the most consumed product in Australia.

My experience:-

After using the TOPO Paw paw ointment for a few weeks I have found it helpful in various ways. It does help heal chapped lips and in addition to that is also good for insect bites and rashes. Like petroleum jelly it is not that greasy and keeps your lips moisturized for much longer.

This ointment is only available in Australia, so the next time you happen to travel to Australia don’t forget to pick one of these for yourself. IMG_6682IMG_6689.jpgIMG_6692.jpg

 

Winter Care by Himalaya Herbals – Review

Hey people,

himalaya.jpg

I am not a big fan of winters and unfortunately I live in one of the coldest cities of India. The temperatures of Delhi are dropping day after day and my bones are shivering to the core. Winters can make us very lazy hence leading us to take no care of our skin. We start drinking less water, stop moisturizing at least twice a day, get chapped skin and lips, our skin dries up etc.

I received a package of winter skin care from Himalaya Herbals and have been using them this season. Himalaya is one of the most trusted brands in India. Himalaya has amazing herbal products that we all love. So, let’s get talking about the 3 essential products of winter care.BeautyPlus_20180202202604_save-01

1. Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion:-

Price: Rs.140/- for 200ml. This body lotion smells fantastic. I cannot stop using it mainly because of the amazing smell of Cocoa butter. The key ingredients are Cocoa Butter and Wheat Germ Oil. The consistency of the lotion is thick but it’s not at all sticky. The body lotion nourishes and intensely moisturizes your skin. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201235 (1).jpgPSX_20180202_201315.jpg

2. Himalaya Nourishing Skin Cream:-

Price: Rs.220/- for 200ml. Himalaya’s Nourishing Skin Cream is a light, non greasy, daily-use cream, which provides all day moisturizing, nourishment and protection. The cream is blended with the extracts of Aloe Vera, Winter Cherry, Indian Kino Tree and Indian Pennywort, which protect your skin from pollution and dry weather, providing nourishment and moisture. I apply this cream on the areas that extremely chapped as its key ingredients Aloe Vera and Winter Cherry have antibacterial and cell regenerative properties. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201418.jpgPSX_20180202_201517.jpgPSX_20180202_201554.jpg

3. Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip Care Balm:-

Price: Rs.140/- for 4.5gm. Lip balms are very important for me. Whether it is summers or winters, I can’t live without my lip balm. I absolutely hate that layer of chapped skin on my lips. In winters there is an increased chance of decrease in moisture of the skin leading to chapped lips. This Himalaya strawberry lip balm is a perfect moisturizing lip balm as it is not tinted and has a lot of shine. Strawberry Seed Oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, acts as an excellent emollient and helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance. Apricot Kernel Oil is a rich source of Vitamin E and an emollient which effectively moisturizes dry and chapped lips. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201700.jpgPSX_20180202_201726.jpgPSX_20180202_201756BeautyPlus_20180202201919_save-01.jpeg
