Still testing it...

8/12/2015 by Buffalo

As a rosacea sufferer, I have marched through a large selection of sunblocks and sunscreens. Several Consumer Reports and Federal studies of the useless shite currently sold at drugstores led me to start using a "physical barrier" style sunscreen/block like Brush On Block. After coating my face and arms with gooey, chalky, zinc oxide that "disappeared on application!"(Not!) I was at wit's end. Then I saw this on The Grommet and in my best Cockney accent said: "'Ello! Wot's this, then?" At the time I was using a "cover-up" block that was tinted green. Huh? I bought BOB and have been using it whenever I go out. I ride a motorcycle and am always in the sun.So far I really like the ease of application and it doesn't seem to be triggering any rosacea outbreaks. I would like to suggest a "Manly Man" size applicator and a larger supply bottle. I recommend it highly.


genius with one flaw

Genius idea, however the brush does not retreat in order to put the cap back on .

Like it -- easy to use and provides great protection.
Probably not good for folks with dry skin (cream or lotion might be better).


design problem?

Genius idea, however one design flaw (at least with mine): The brush does not retract to put the cap back on. Bouncing around in a handbag, some of the powder will come out.


Convenient to use

I like the whole concept of a brush on sunscreen, however, it made me look like I was caked in powder. I needed to swipe a tissue over my face after application.


Sun screen

This purchase was for my son. He has skin pigment, so sun screen is an absolute must. This is so much better then the liquids he has been using all his life. Dirt does not stick to him or his clothes. That is wonderful. It is so much easier to apply & doesn't burn his eyes when he does sweat. We have ordered a number of refills!

I'm not really sure about this product. It seams a little difficult to see when the powder is in the brush. I was drawn to this item due to the ease of of application and non-messy aspect. May be learning curve or user error. Pretty good idea! If I can get it to work.


Not Sure if it works

I carry this sunscreen in a makeup bag that I take on trips. I use on my face only... but I also wear makeup that has sunscreen in it. I am not sure if this is really working or not.


Would be better with a tint

I find I'm having trouble trusting that this powder is evenly covering my face. I tried it because my eyes are so sensitive to other sunscreens that I simply can't wear them. But when I put this on, I'm never convinced that it's covering my face because there's no sign that it's even on my face. I guess I just don't trust it to work. Which is unfortunate, because it was expensive!


okay but not great

Difficult to get started and then watch out when it finally does. I was able to get the product dispensed from the counter though. It worked though and I did not get burned and I was at 10,000 feet of elevation.

The Brush On Block Story

Brush on Block - Mineral Powder Sunscreen

Easy Cover Up

Back off, sun. We’re armed with a brush.

Brush on Block is a mineral sunscreen for the whole family, in powder form. The self-dispensing brush is mess-free and easy to take with you, holding a cartridge of SPF 30 powder inside—a couple of shakes and you’re ready to apply. When you run out, just refill the brush.

Naturally occurring minerals like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide protect skin. And botanicals like chamomile and green tea extracts enrich, soothe, and replenish it. Because there’s no tint, you can wear it under makeup or over.

Creator Susan Posnick is a beauty and skincare
expert—the personal makeup artist to Mary Kay and other celebrities, Susan has her own cosmetic line. But when she was diagnosed with melanoma, she discovered her true calling. Today she’s a skin health advocate making better ways to protect your skin, like Brush on Block.

Brush some on the kids before a bike ride (it won't sting their eyes like lotion), or apply it before golfing, skiing, or hiking. No greasiness, and no more sunburnt noses.
