Lucas Pawpaw ointment has been flying off the shelves since we had our delivery a mere few weeks ago!
So, what’s with all the fuss? Well, the fabulous ointment shipped in from Australia is made from the exotic fruit – Papaya. Raw papaya is rich in vitamins, notably vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6 and C, and minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. For pawpaw/papaya ointment the active ingredient in the papaya fruit is the enzyme papain which is found in the fermented fruit.
Why should I use it? This 80 year old, multi-tasking salve works as a local topical application for boils, burns, chafing, cuts, cracked skin, gravel rash, splinters, open wounds, insect bites and nappy rash. This balm helps to relieve and cleanse anywhere on the body and is a great moisturiser for chapped lips because it doesn’t taste of chemicals.
Why it’s cult: Every single woman in Australia has this in their handbag and it is fast becoming THE product in the UK for those in the know. A more natural Eight Hour Cream with a neutral taste and unbeatable moisturising properties. The Ointment comes in two sizes here at Austique; A 25g tube (£8) and a 75g tub (£15) and is described by Holly Willoughby as a ‘Great all rounder’ leaving her comfortable to leave the house without make-up!

London Fashion Week, 2012 (LFW)
It’s that time of year again: designers run ragged, plane loads of buyers & of course the press taking charge whilst every celebrity worth their salt gathers together, taking up the front row seats of London’s hottest fashion shows. Yes, it’s London Fashion Week once again. Twice a year all hell breaks loose when fashions’ hottest event hits New York, London, Milan and finally Paris.
Here in London, Fashion Week is one of the most – if not the most important event in any designers’ calendar. Not only is it an exclusive opportunity to showcase new collections from old favourites, it’s also a perfect platform to introduce up and coming designers. With hundreds of photographers snapping the latest trends and countless bloggers hammering notes into their I-Pads, it can be a life changing moment for any designer. A whole month dedicated to fashion across the globe!
We are lucky to live in such a fabulous city thriving with style and innovative ideas. LFW is the place to be for absolute raw style and an insight into our soon to be SS13 wardrobe! LFW is the pinnacle of British fashion, introducing groundbreaking designs to the world. Be Inspired, I know we are!
