#511 – Long-Handled Lotion Applicator

lotionapplicatorgraphicThis summer, I spent a number of late afternoons at the beach. Sadly, I often went alone, as no one was available to join me. (Boo Hoo!)

I was well-equipped to enjoy the beach, though. Chair, hat, towel, water, book – √!

“Wait a minute, what about sunscreen?” you ask.

If there is no George Clooney look-a-like to massage sunscreen onto your back, here is the next best thing.

This lotion wand is ideal for those hard-to-reach places, whether you’re recovering from hip surgery and can’t exceed that 90 degree bend, or if you want to moisturize your back.

It’s easy to use, too. Simply unscrew the roller-ball head from the base. Fill it with lotion or sunscreen and apply. There’s even a cap that fits over the roller-ball head to prevent the remaining lotion from drying out.

This makes a great gift for that person who lives alone and isn’t as flexible or mobile as they once were. It’s also a great gift for someone who wishes to remain as independent as possible.

  1. Wow, I love the lotion applicator. I have a bit of winter skin issue that I can never get the medication applied on. I think with that I might be hit that spot. Why do these spots always show up where we have difficulty reaching them.

  2. What a great idea Marianna! You have come up with a “Why didn’t I think of that!” moment.

    It would work for applying liniment also don’t you think?

  3. You come up with the best ideas. I’m going to check out your other ideas. Thanks! Happy holidays Marianna.
