Reapplying sunscreen made easy with Brush on Block

Published on May 24th, 2018 by Joyce Pezzulo

Brush on Block sunscreenIs applying sunscreen in the morning fairly easy for you, but reapplying it during the day challenging? If so, you are not alone! As big proponents of sunscreens, the dermatologists at SkinCare Physicians are introducing their patients to a product that makes reapplying (and applying) sunscreen as easy as using lip balm.  Discover Brush On Block and its unique story!

Brush on Block was born from the meeting of two women who adamantly agreed that every person needs to wear sunscreen every day. One was a mother who battled daily to apply goopy sunscreen to her two young daughters. The other was a celebrity makeup artist and skin cancer survivor. Both were determined to create an easy and convenient sun protection for the whole family.

Brush on Block is a terrific brush sunscreen powder that offers a quick, safe and natural way for women, men and children to apply and reapply broad spectrum 30 SPF sun protection wherever they go.  The brush can easily be thrown in your handbag, gym/sports bag, backpack or beach bag. It will not spill all over the place thanks to its locking open/close mechanism. Made from naturally occurring sunscreen ingredients, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, it is chemical free and non-irritating. It is also water resistant and comes either with a translucent coverage, making it ideal for everyone in the family, or with a subtle “Touch of Tan” for that summer glow. Finally, Brush on Block is refillable, an economical and nice feature… all you have to do is remove the bottom cartridge and pop on the refill!

As an aesthetician at SkinCare Physicians, my favorite feature is that this powder sun block can be applied right over my makeup without disturbing it.  After doing my morning skincare routine (which includes a moisturizer with SPF 50) and applying my makeup, I was reluctant to reapply sunscreen during the day simply because I felt that I would need to reapply my makeup as well, which can be timely.  With Brush on Block, I no longer hesitate. The brushed powder just glides right over my carefully made-up face without altering my makeup.

Men will also find Brush on Block easier to use than a lotion as it doesn’t look greasy or shiny.  They can easily buff bald spots, tops of the ears and back of the neck.  This can be especially useful on the golf course, on tennis courts, or during any outdoors activities.

Our kids will love it because it doesn’t sting their eyes.  And, I know when my daughter was younger, she couldn’t stand the ‘stickyness’ of traditional SPF lotions. So this block will feel light and go on easier for our children.

While Brush on Block is a convenient way to apply and reapply sunscreen throughout the day, be wise and remember the other basics of daily sun protection:  avoid midday sun exposure, seek shade, and wear wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses.

Stop by SkinCare Physicians’ Boutique during your next visit and try Brush on Block!  You’ll love it and we’re happy to answer any questions you might have. If your next appointment is far away, purchase your Brush on Block online.
