BackBliss Lotion Applicator


Caroline Wagstaff came up with the idea of the BackBliss Lotion Applicator, while on holiday with her partner, she had forgotten to ask him to apply sunscreen on her back before he went off to play golf and as a result spent all afternoon on her back. After placing a sponge to the end of a coat hanger to apply after sun in her hotel room, she came up with the ingenius idea of a lotion and cream applicator. Dragon's Den fans might remember Caroline as she appeared on the show pitching the idea. My initial thoughts on hearing about this product was that it was a bit of a gimmick, but I hadn’t realised that only 20% of the population can reach the middle of their backs, who knew I was in the minority? If you’re not so fortunate, or have a bad arm or shoulder, then moisturising your back can be quite difficult along with ensuring sun screen or medicated creams are evenly applied.

The product comes with one lotion applicator, two washable applicator pads and a swivel suction hook to hang it from. The BackBliss lives up to the its hype and does exactly what it says on the tin. Will I be reaching for it daily? No. But then I can reach the middle of my back, however it will probably get a lot of use as a back scratcher - my poor husband will be relieved.

The BackBliss Lotion Applicator is priced at £11.99 for a single pack and £19.99 for double pack.
