In Brief: Lucas' Papaw Ointment7:40 AM
I have to give it to Digital Traincase, she's a clear trendsetter in the Philippines. I knew nothing about Lucas' Papaw Ointment before she started carrying it, and suddenly it's all over local blogs and lifestyle publications. Same with Ben Nye powders, OCC Lip Tars, etc. etc. I'd also like to thank Frances for bringing me a tube straight from its home in Australia! Anyway this Papaw thing, what's it for and is it little more than glorified petroleum jelly?
So I put it on and it's nothing special. Feels like petroleum jelly or any other lip balm.
But over a few weeks I realize, it's the ONLY THING aside from a teeny tiny tube of Clarins Lip Treatment that's able to keep my lips moisturized and plump. All day. Even overnight.
All other lip balms need constant application hasssssle. Plus this ointment doesn't make the rest of my oral area oily the way stick balms and petroleum jellies do, you know?
