    • I love this thing. It is the perfect design for reaching your back. It curves just right so the pad lies flat against your skin, and the handle has a textured surface so it won't slip form your hand. It folds shut, which means it can be stored easily and you can also travel with it conveniently. Very lightweight and the pads don't suck up all the product, so you actually get the lotion onto your back. Love it. I can finally moisturize my upper back.

    • I have been relying on my husband or my daughter to help me apply treatments to my back. I no longer need help. The slight curve of the wand allows for just the right amount of pressure during application, from both the top or the bottom of my back. After I slightly dampen the pad with water, I put a little lotion across the top of my shoulder blades and use the wand to spread it around. The lotion is now on the pad and I apply it to the bottom my back. This really is the best little product!

    Very good
    • I've tried a couple of different applicators and this one is by far the best. My only issue is that one end should be a handle because holding onto a paddle end is awkward and can be slippery. But overall that's a minor drawback and you can't beat the price.

    Inexpensive and works well.
    • I was pleasantly surprised by this purchase: this is easy to use and works very well to apply lotion to the back. Another reviewer stated that the pad absorbs product, but I do not find that to be true. However, I do wish the pad were a bit larger. Overall, this is a great bargain, and really does get at hard-to-reach spaces (hello, shoulder blades!).

    Very good!
    • I was pleasantly surprised by this, I am able to put product on the majority of my back where my hands can't reach. I pinched myself in the snap closure so be careful! I will put my product on the pad in an "s" formation, pat it around them rub in circular motions. The pads are super soft and shouldn't upset even the most sensitive skin. I always felt like portions of my back were neglected, not anymore!

    Pretty good
    • I use this to apply lotion to my back and it works better than any other applicator I've used. I very slightly dampen the pad with water before use then apply lotion. What I like most is how easy it is to get the lotion evenly applied rather than a blob in one spot and none in another. I haven't had mine long enough to comment on how long the pads can be used before replacement is necessary.

    Pretty Good.
    • I really like this tool to apply self tanner. I like that it doesn't absorb much product so you don't end up wasting any. I would give it 5 stars if the applicator was a little larger. It's hard to get a precise application on your back but I believe that having a larger sponge would help this issue.

    • Been using them for a few years now and love them! But for this particular item, t is just awful. I get the concept BUT it does not work and here's why. 1. when you snap open the piece it curves out not in like a body brush, when you go to apply it doesn't contour to your back 2.the pads absorb the product, so unless you put a glob on you have to reapply more and more product .

    Thanks for your review! We're sorry this product didn't meet your needs. A quick note on the pads, though: They are designed to not absorb much product, so you get more of the product on skin.

    • This did not work at all for applying self tanner to the back. Firstly, the pad portion is way too small. The tanner kept getting onto the handle of the applicator, and it was really difficult to get the shoulder blade area. It kept missing it somehow. Secondly, the material of the pad does not allow for rubbing in of the product- rather it just smears it. I use mitts regularly for applying self tanner and they work great- however this material is awful for rubbing in. Don't waste your money.
