Item of the Day: Lucas' Papaw Ointment

I’ve read a lot of articles lately with titles like “10 Best Beauty Buys for Winter!” and “Beat Winter Blues with THESE Tried and Tested Products!” And I want you to know, this is not another one of those articles. Those lists are filled with sometimes expensive solutions that end up working just as well as Vaseline. There’s no list here, just one item that does it all. Everybody swears by something, and I swear by Lucas’ Papaw Ointment.

I first came across this stuff when I asked my co-worker if she had lotion. She handed me a tub of Lucas’ Papaw Ointment, and it instantly removed the scaly feeling from my wintery, wind-burned hands. I waited until the next morning, skeptically, to see if the stuff held up. My hands were still soft, and the rest is history.

The key ingredient here is papaya. And it’s working, because this stuff fixes everything: chapped lips, dry skin, sunburns, diaper rash, bug bites, and the list goes on. There are even reviews online saying it works for eczema. It comes in a variety of sizes and containers, but the tub is my weapon of choice. It’s easy to just dig in and have at it.

Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is from Australia, and only distributed to a few countries, but you can order it directly from their factory. I cheated and bought mine on Amazon (sorry, Lucas). Order some and let me know how much you love it!

    There’s one in every household in Australia, and pretty much every girls bag!

    Not just in every household in Australia – in every backpacker’s bag who has ever left Australia. I’m yet to come across someone on the road who hasn’t got a few tubes to last them however long they plan on being away!

    You should post the story behind Lucas, and the hospital pictured on the logo… it’s interesting!

    Yay for Australian beauty buys! But just as a side not, from someone who used it everyday on their lips for like ten years, it’s not great in the long haul. Lips don’t like it as much as skin.
