Product Review: Brauer’s Paw Paw All Natural Lip Butter.

The long search for the perfect lip balm is well and truly over! Hooraay! You can thank me later…

After over 10 years, my search for the perfect lip balm came to a very welcomed screeching halt as of Monday this week. If the idea of slathering your pout with carcinogenic petrochemicals and other nasties found in 99% of balms out there (yes, including the so called ‘natural’ ones) doesn’t really float your boat, then you best be sitting down with pen and paper and writing the name of this product down.

Brauer’s new PawPaw All Natural Lip Butter – and it’s made right here in Australia… Bingo!

My new fave pot full of goodness! It has been a long time coming!!!

This compares to some luxury cosmetics’ companies balms … Trust me I worked in the industry for 10 years, and I am happy to announce that this is right up there with the best of them, better for you and your wallet… Wait for it RRP$ 4.99 yes, no typo here.

Now down to business:

Paw Paw- Fermented and known for its healing and antibacterial properties.
Certified Organic Beeswax- used to seal in hydration…read plump and baby soft!
Vitamin E & Shea Butter
Carrot Oil- to rejuvenate, rehydrate and packed full of vitamins… yes please!
Stevia- a natural herb, 300x sweeter than sugar, minus the calories… Yum!!! Lick away ladies!!

Texture– Check

Perfect Not too heavy not too light, not a greasy pout in sight! This was really the selling point for me and where this balm is up above the rest, many natural ones I have tried just totally failed on the texture front…Too grease ball and gone in 60 seconds!

Flavour – Check

Natural Stevia makes this oh so yummy and sweet!

Price – Check

$4.99 per pot… I pay more for my soy flat white… I rest my case. I’ll take 10 please!

I found mine at Chemist Warehouse North Perth… Run in before everyone else catches on!!!

Did you know that the popular Lucas Papaw Balm is petrochemical based? How about trying a natural alternative? Let us know what you think!

    Great article, didn’t know this about Lucas Papaw! Have been keeping an eye out for this Brauer balm since reading this, finally found it & in a tube at Gregs Discount Chemist! Loving it, so so much better than lucas papaw 🙂

  9. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Hi Paula, that’s awesome!

    The word about Lucas’ is slowly getting out, but unfortunately a lot of people still aren’t aware.

    I’m really happy you’re loving the Brauer 😀 x

    After having chemo and radiotherapy on my mouth 4 yrs ago ,my lips suffered terribly, the stuff they were giving/recommending me at Peter Macs was all petro based,and made my lips feel like they couldnt breathe.

    I too searched long and hard for a truly natural product, until i found Brauers Paw Paw Butter, it really gives me a ton of relief like nothing else.

    I now have several tins lying around the house, and in the car, so i am never without it
