I love products that make common sense and the SunBuddy does.  No one can reach their back and asking someone to rub lotion or creams on your back is very imposing.  This product makes it very easy!   Wonderful and now you can care for your back with ease.

Great applicator!

It is nice to be able to apply cream on my back without any help.
I had been thinking of inventing something like this myself but to decided to look on line to see what I can find.

Very sturdy. I would recommend this product to everyone.

Thanks

I've been saved!!!! Your back lotion applicator has been a godsend for me.  I am taking a special steroid lotion prescribed by my doctor for an itchy back and couldn't apply it be my self.  The Sunbuddy really helped the problem.  Thanks!!

Kept thinking someone needs to invent a good lotion applicator and here it is!  Have purchased a couple of other brands only for them to break after just a few uses.  This has a nice sturdy "extending" handle,  easily washable and has a nice carry pouch.   I like the square handle as it prevents slippage that a round handle might create if your hands already have lotion on them.  Have ordered 5 so far...great for a gift bag!!

Got this for my 90 year old mother to lotion her back. She said it worked like a charm. She's sometimes a little hard to please so I considered that a successful purchase.

Got the idea of purchasing Sun Buddy from my daughter in Phoenix who used it successfully.  Purchased 3 as stocking stuffers and all recipients have been delighted with the product.  BIGGEST PLUS - my husband no longer wakes me up at 5:30 am to put lotion on his back.  Great product and great company so far in doing business with them. Looking  forward to using it on vacation for sunscreen too

very handy

I have had an idea of this sort of thing for a long time.  Went to an "invention" helping team.  
Love the product.  Would make the handle round.  It is uncomfortable to grasp.  
Thank you for this.

The dermatologist recommended the use of a prescription cream for my back.  The SunBuddy has made it much easier to apply the cream.

Thanks for the efficient, effective, foldable product!

SunBuddy is the best of many products I have tried to apply sunscreen and moisturizer. It is sturdy, well constructed, and easy to clean after use.

Happy to have found this well designed tool. It's a challenge to apply cream to my back without a third hand around, and this tool makes that possible.  The construction seems sturdy and user friendly.

I have very severe dry skin, and for years I had look for an applicator to apply my back moisturizer, and until I found the Sun Buddy there hasn't been anything that even comes close, constructed so well with the thought of using a handle that bends, you have a customer for life, THANKS SUN BUDDY!!

Love this applicator. Looks great and the extension function works well. Built to last a good long time. The pads do wear out, so I advise ordering a few extras if you need to apply lotion every day. All in all, a great purchase.

Outstanding Design and Function

The thought that went into the development of the SunBuddy is evident in the way that the device was designed:  Sturdy, ergonomically structured with quality components.  Rather than just get something to market that looks like it will work, the SunBuddy goes miles farther....it really does work!

I had been looking for a good applicator to apply lotion or sunscreen to my back and other areas that I couldn't use, but I didn't want a flimsy little short one either. This item is great! The adjustable length on the handle helps me reach all of my back and other areas that I can't reach without it. I would recommend this to all my friends!

I Love the SunBuddy!

I can finally reach every part of my back when applying lotion.  I have very dry, itchy skin, but since using the SunBuddy to apply moisturizing lotion to my back, the itchiness has subsided and my skin feels soft and supple.  Another thing I really like is being able to remove the pad to clean it.  The SunBuddy is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone.

Many uses!

I have numerous tattoos on my back and trying to put lotion on them to keep them moisturized can be a big pain.  The SunBuddy allowed me to easily apply lotion without having to ask a friend or bend over backwards trying to put it on.

A great lotion applicator!

This product works great! It's durable and applies lotion evenly on my back almost effortlessly. This is ideal to use when applying sunblock, ointments, or lotion. I currently use this to apply lotion on my back after every shower. When the summer hits, I look forward to using this as a sunblock applicator for my back, just in case I don't have a hot chick to rub it on for me. This product is truly the real deal.

It works great!

It has soft, washable pads that feels silky and the SunBuddy easily folds up, making it easy to take along with me when I travel. I use it for body lotions and for sunscreen. But you can use it with almost any cream or ointment.

Ladies, hide it from your boyfriends or they'll start using it too.

I can now finally reach my back!

Customer Review Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars SunBuddy - Back Lotion Applicator 4
Pros: Easily reached all areas of my back. Rather than being just a long stick, it opens at an angle for ease of use. It has an extendable handle that retracts. The SunBuddy easily folds up and includes storage pouch.

Cons: Pricer than most competitor products, but once you use it, it's worth the price. Pads need to be replaced after a month or so of use. But if you take care of the pad, it may last longer.
