Phytocare PURE Papaya Ointment review

I don't know about you but I don't normally change my skin routine with the weather. But after being contacted to try out Phytocare PURE Papaya Ointment and seeing the difference it made to my skin, it made me realise my skin really needs extra tlc in the cold weather.

Now, my hands aren't exactly dry but they do look dehydrated instead of plump. And they do say that old age shows up most on the hands! Not my favourite body part I'll tell you that!

I've been moisturising my hands more regularly these days but I haven't been using anything to prevent them from getting dehydrated. I mean, other than a pair of gloves is there such thing that will protect my hands from the harsh weather?

After massaging the soft, pale yellow paste onto my hands, which instantly melts and leaves no sticky or oily residue, I found that this ointment not only moisturises but leaves a lovely silky protective layer,  trapping moisture into my skin. Just like an invisible silk glove. Do you know how petroleum jelly traps in moisture? This is similar except it's completely petrochemical-free and its 100% natural ingredients are super moisturising. Once this layer is completely absorbed, my hands feel beautifully soft and hydrated.

What are these magic ingredients do you say?
Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Macadamia ternifolia oil, Simmondsia chinesis (jojoba) oil, Carica Papaya (papaya) ferment, Tocopherol acetate (vitamin E), Caprylic triglyceride (coconut derived), Sorbitan Olivate (olive derived emulsifier), Fragrance (naturally derived), Styrax benzoin resinoid, Calendula officinalis flower extract.

The product has many uses around the body such as on insect bites, burns, nappy rash or as a lip balm.

Overall, I love this product and will definitely be using it for the cold months ahead. It's definitely a handbag essential for me.

You can buy PURE Papaya from their website. Prices start from £9.99 for the 25ml tube. It comes in a pot too but I find that the tube is both convenient and sanitary for applying on the go.
