Christmas Gift Inspiration... Dr PawPaw Tinted Ultimate Red Balm!!

I love this multi purpose balm by Dr PawPaw. It's a red tinted balm to ad a festive pop of colour to your lips and cheeks and it's a really lovely little product to carry around with you and it makes a perfect stocking filler. 

The Pawpaw balms are made from a variety of natural ingredients including Pawpaw, Olive Oil and Aloe Vera Oil. 
The main ingredient is fermented Pawpaw, the fruit of the plant Carica Papaya. The Pawpaw has been found to have many soothing properties for your skin.
Carica Papaya
This nutrient rich fruit is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, vitamins A and C and acetogenins which when applied externally, helps in aiding skin repair, adding moisture and smoothing and tightening the skin. 

Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil
Olive oil has a variety of benefits for skin, due to its vast amount of antioxidants. Olive Oil contains Vitamin A and E but the most potent compound is Hydroxytyrosol. This rare antioxidant prevents free radical damage on skin cells and is absorbed deeply into the skin. It has many anti-inflammatory properties and is really great for dry skin.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
A desert plant with amazing abilities to absorb and restore moisture. It contains more than 200 different plant constituents that promote glowing, youthful looking skin. 

It costs £6.95 for 25mls

They have the original Dr PawPaw Balm and the Tinted Peach Pink Balm available too.

With Christmas getting so close so fast, weather you need a quick stocking filler or are looking for a luxury skincare product, Amway has got your gift buying needs well and truly covered. 

They have many great products available. I've been using a couple of their skincare products and they really are fantastic. I've been using their Hydra-V Vital Skin Serum Concentrate and the Hydra-V Refreshing Eye Gel Cream. 

ARTISTRY HYDRA-V Vital Skin Serum Concentrate is a powerful serum that helps refreshes, replenishes and revitalises skin. 

It's packed with proprietary scientific techniques, formulas and special blends of natural ingredients. These are delivered via a light serum that contains blue hydra-inspired beads that open when the product is dispensed or on application to the skin. The result is a fresh-feeling serum that is light, easily absorbed by the skin and suitable for all skin types 

•    Immediate hydration boost. Hydration levels are boosted by up to 184% immediately after one application.
•    Round-the-clock benefits. ARTISTRY HYDRA-V Vital Skin Serum Concentrate provides lasting hydration for up to 24 hours*, meaning that skin looks and feels better throughout the day and night.
•    Proven improvements to skin tone and texture. A 28-day clinical trial revealed that ARTISTRY HYDRA-V Vital Skin Serum Concentrate restores the cellular organisation of the upper layers of the skin, leaving skin looking more even-toned and smooth, and softer to the touch.
•    Extensively tested. ARTISTRY HYDRA-V Vital Skin Serum Concentrate has been allergy and dermatologist tested.
•    Suitable for all skin types, including dry, combination, oily and even sensitive skin.

This costs €63.70 for 30mls

ARTISTRY HYDRA-V Refreshing Eye Gel Cream is an intensely hydrating, non-greasy gel cream that refreshes and hydrates the skin around the eyes to deliver immediate and enduring benefits. 

This gel cream is light and silky, meaning it absorbs quickly and is able to deliver hydration fast and effectively and is suitable for all skin types.


•    Immediate boost to hydration levels and appearance. One application is all it takes to boost hydration levels by 67%.

•    After experiencing ARTISTRY HYDRA-V Refreshing Eye Gel Cream just once, you will notice how it brightens the eye area and makes eyes look wide awake.
•    Continuous hydration. Benefits last for a full 24 hours, with skin looking and feeling supple and smooth. If extra hydration is needed throughout the day, ARTISTRY HYDRA-V Refreshing Eye Gel Cream can be applied, as needed, and even over make-up.
