Dr Paw Paw Original Balm

beauty blog

Hello! Long time no blog. I’ve been having a bit of a break from blogging for numerous reasons but I was sent Dr Paw Paw* for review and I wanted to share this little beauty of a product with you. Dr. Paw Paw contains a host of skin loving ingredients such as fermented pawpaw (papaya) which is packed full of antioxidants,vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, to help aid in repairing the skin, as well as tightening and moisturising. It also contains olive oil which has anti-inflammatory properties and is excellent for dry skin and hair. And also Aloe Leaf juice which helps to absorb and retain moisture.

Dr. Paw Paw is a great multi-purpose product which comes in a handy little tube perfect for popping in your bag. It’s a little difficult to squeeze out initially but the thick, clear balm easily spreads and dissipates on the skin. Dr. Paw Paw has lots of uses, I’ve been using it as a lip balm, taming and keeping my eyebrows in place, but the best thing I’ve found it for is my nails/cuticles. My cuticles have been in a bit of a state lately but after rubbing Dr Paw Paw in just the once they’ve improved dramatically, my nails also feel in much better condition.

Dr Paw Paw would also make a great barrier balm for babies’ bottoms as well as soothing nappy rash. It’s great on dry patches of skin and also helps aid the healing process of acne, bites etc. I’m really impressed with this little product. Definitely one to have at all times!

Topshop Nude Eyes in Stripped

If you read my last post (here) you’ll recognise this little pot from my wishlist. I found the idea of a nude, blendable, longwearing cream eyeshadow too tempting so I bought Topshop’s Nude Eyes in Stripped. First off, as you can see the pot is tiny, much more tiny that I thought it’d be but you do only seem to need a little product so I’m hoping it’ll last a reasonably long time. It’s described as a pinky-nude on the site but I’d say it has more peachy/apricot undertones. One application of this gives a subtle wash of colour but it’s easily built for more colour on the lid. I’ve been applying this with my fingers. The heat from fingers make it easier to blend out. This doesn’t crease and I don’t find it patchy or drying. It’s surprisingly longwearing and is also waterproof. Nude eyes would make a great base product and I reckon they’re not a bad dupe for MAC’s Paint Pots. 

There’s another 4 colours available and should suit most skin tones. It’s a great non-fuss eyeshadow that works great on its own, blended with other shadows/ or eyeliner, or a base product. It’d be great for holidays/ festivals due to it’s longevity. A really nice little product, despite there only being a small amount of it.

Are you a fan of Topshop’s makeup?

Weekly Wishlist #2 The Topshop Edit

beauty fashion blog

Topshop is definitely one of my favourite high street shops. Quality can sometimes be a little lacking though and for the price of some items I’d like some better materials but overall it’s one of my favourite places to shop. They have a wide range of styles and trends (groan, I hate that word). First up is a white crossover blouse. I have a similar top I bought from them absolutely ages ago and it’s still going strong, perfect for a more dressed up day look; easy to wear and comfortable. I love this black kimono jacket, I’m sorely tempted to purchase it but I have far too many jackets already! I really love the colour of this Mustard Silk Cami, another item perfect for dressing up or down. You can’t go wrong with a good Grey Sweater and the lace details just add a little something extra to this one. I practically live in my Nikes but I love these Adidas Superstars, you can’t have too many trainers right? I rarely wear earrings to be honest but I love these Art-Deco-esque drop earrings.

I love Topshop’s makeup. It’s incredibly reasonably priced and generally good quality. The Nude Eyes look like a good dupe for MAC’s paint pots. And rather brilliantly they come in a selection of shades suited to most skin tones rather than the default light-skin tone. The Glow Dome in Intergalactic looks incredibly pretty, there’s other shades available too. Finally, is the Lipstick in Beguiled. This is part of their range celebrating 5 years in beauty. They’ve pimped up their most popular makeup, another one I think I’m going to buy.
