9/9 Pawpaw Nectar by We Are Feel Good Inc.
Is there anything worse than putting effort into making sure your teeth are sparkly white, only to notice your lips have dried out and now resemble the outback? For super dried out lips, we can’t go past good old fashioned pawpaw. Our favourite is this Pawpaw Nectar from We Are Feel Good Inc, it’s non-greasy and doesn’t contain any petroleum like other pawpaw balms can. Bonus – It may be placebo… but we’re pretty sure pawpaw ointment fixes any cut, rash or bump!
