Body Buddy Non-Absorbent Lotion Applicator

A Perfectly Moisturized Back

Body Buddy Non-Absorbent Lotion Applicator

Now every inch of you can be pretty and moisturized. The new applicator by Body Buddy eliminates all the uncomfortable twisting and turning associated with trying to reach the hard-to-get spot on your back or shoulders. The non-absorbent strip made of soft vinyl spreads moisturizer evenly on any area without leaving a residue on the applicator. Just squeeze a dollop of lotion in the center and use the elastic handles to diagonally rub the skin you want to pamper.

The Body Buddy non-absorbent applicator can be stuffed in a beach bag or used in the shower. The portable product is ideal for applying sunscreen, medicated lotions, self tanner, or even shimmer lotion for that special backless dress. We enjoyed spreading a grainy scrub on the applicator and using it to slough away rough skin from our backs and our feet. Skin was left in great shape, right in time for swimsuit season!

The non-porous applicator is available in various cheery colors, ranging from teal to bright pink. An occasional machine wash is all that’s needed to freshen up the strip. For the most effective body coverage, we recommend applying lotion in a thin line down the length of the applicator and gripping the ends of the strip, rather than the bands. When all is said and done, Body Buddy is truly a simple solution to reach every spot.
