Product Review: Vive Lotion Applicator

Vive Lotion ApplicatorDo you find it impossible to apply lotion, sunscreen, or medicated ointment to your back when nobody is around to help? If so, try the Vive Lotion Applicator — you’ll wonder how you managed without it! The 17-inch durable lotus wood handle won’t split or crack and is a perfect length to reach your back. A nonslip rubber grip will ensure that the handle doesn’t slide out of your hand. The 3.5-inch applicator pad is a dense foam that won’t absorb your lotion, cream, oil or gel, allowing for a smooth and even application — without drips.
