No, seriously. It’s the must-have item of the season and the name says it all – The Block Brush is a refillable sunblock brush that provides you the freedom of always having sunblock handy without having to carry a full bottle around. The bright idea originated from Australian mompreneur, Lisa, who designed the no mess, no fuss skin protectant applicator that features a small, sleek bottle design that can fit nicely in even the smallest of bags.

This innovative sunblock brush is perfect for applying sunblock to both children (toddlers and babies) and adults; the unique brush head is ergonomically designed to evenly disperse the sunblock to those smaller and more delicate areas such as around the eyes and lips while still big enough for even coverage over the entire face, ears, and neck, and all while keeping your hands sunblock free! Great for on-the-go to the beach, park, travel, or even just everyday use at home. Just fill the internal canister with the liquid sunblock of your choice and away you go! In addition to sunscreen, The Block Brush is also great when applying a tinted moisturizer, foundation, concealer, or other facial beauty products. The Block Brush can be a real lifesaver, so make sun protection a priority for yourself and your loved ones, wherever you are!

  • Order yours from The Block Brush NOW, and make sure that you have it ready for any time you’re outdoors.
