The necessity to wear sunscreen is not something that I take lightly, and as I have said before, I don't ever leave the house without wearing a minimum of an SPF 30 on all exposed areas of skin. I admit that my least favorite part is reapplication every couple of hours, but the latest sunscreen on my radar is so easy to use, and to reapply, that there are no viable excuses that warrant skipping reapplication.Brush on Block Mineral Sunscreen is so easy and pleasant to use that I never forget to reapply it– which is the only effective way to remain protected.
Brush on Block is a loose mineral powder sunscreen that is housed in a sleek black tube with a cartridge containing the powder on the bottom and a brush through which the powder is dispensed on top. One simply turns it upside down and the powder travels to the brush, and it only dispenses a small amount of sunscreen at a time so that there is never a wasteful mess. Simply sweep the soft synthetic bristles across the skin, and it deposits powder evenly in a thin translucent veil without color (though in the tube it appears to be a light beige or ivory shade).
While it can be used on the face and the body, given the size of the brush I find it easier to apply to my face rather than the larger expanses of skin on my body, but it is definitely formulated to be used everywhere that one would apply sunscreen.
One might think that a mineral powder sunscreen would look and feel drying on the skin, but instead the nourishing antioxidant-rich ingredients leave my skin feeling comfortable, soothed and lightly moisturized.
Brush on Block can be applied under or over makeup, and it neither emphasizes pores, nor does it settle into fine lines. I actually find that it doubles as a lovely setting powder when applied on top of my foundation, tinted moisturizer or BB and CC Creams.
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.
