Beauty Review: PURE Papaya Ointment
Besides its legendary buttery texture and tasty sweet flavor, do you know that papaya is also widely known for its whitening, exfoliating and anti-aging properties?
I’m not kidding.
Papaya’s positive points go far beyond delicious taste and a good dose of Vitamin C. The fruit also contains Vitamin A and papain that helps to break down inactive proteins and exfoliate skin gently. Papain is an enzyme that helps to soften and whiten the skin, reducing the appearance of freckles and age spots. On top of these great benefits, papaya is also a fantastic remedy for sunburned skin and acne.
However, slicing papayas and applying them on the skin sounds like a pretty cumbersome and messy affair. But fret not. Here’s my quick solution. 🙂
Introducing PURE Papaya Ointment!
PURE Papaya Ointment – the 100% natural, petrochemical-free multi-tasking skin care essential from Australia. In addition to papaya (aka paw paw in Australia), active ingredients include soothing calendula, shea butter, jojoba oil, macadamia oil, styrax benzoin resin, silica, beeswax and vitamin E.
The ointment provides the perfect combination to soothe, moisturize and protect your skin, and is great as a moisturizing lip balm, for soothing insect bites, minor burns, sunburn, dry irritated skin conditions including dermatitis, nappy rash, cracked nipples, dermatitis, the aftercare of tattoos and tattoo removal, and much more.
PURE Papaya Ointment is the ultimate multipurpose skin care product, and is a cult beauty product in its native Australia where its as at home in a make up bag as it is the medicine cabinet.
Here’s what I think of the product… Due to long hours spent in air conditioned environments, I’ve been suffering from skin droughts for the longest time. I’ve tried many moisturizers but most seem to only provide a temporary relief – my skin feels tight and flaky again when moisturizer disappears.
The Papaya Ointment seems to have a stronger staying power due to its thicker texture and natural source of ingredients. After application, my skin felt smooth and hydrated, even my boyfriend noticed!
The ointment remains on my skin until I remove it with water and soap. This is a huge plus for me as it removes the hassle of reapplication and prevents me from becoming a dried prune.
I also like the fact that it is handy and can be applied anywhere on the skin from the body, face to the lips! These multi-purpose and aviation-friendly qualities makes it the ultimate beauty travel companion. No more lugging heavy bottles of moisturizers! However, the fragrance of the product might be slightly unpleasant to some. For first time users, it may smell like papaya with plasticine. But you don’t have to worry because the smell fades away after a while.
For me, the goal of achieving silky smooth skin surpasses any ‘temporary stench’! Haha! For its long lasting moisture retention and rich source of vitamin, 4 Honeyz crowns!
For your own dose of paw paw goodness, try PURE Papaya Ointment too!
