As my mother and I are both getting older, it is harder to reach every part of our backs with lotion - and lotion is absolutely essential in a dry environment like Arizona. The Vive lotion applicator is the perfect solution. The lotion doesn't absorb into your skin as quickly as when using your hands, but if you cover the area with the applicator and let it air dry for a minute or so, it is just fine. I highly recommend this product, and have gotten one for my dad and stepdad as well.

Just what I was looking for
For several years I thought how nice it would be to have a lotion applicator to reach all over my back. I finally started researching options, found the Vive applicator, and am thrilled! The applicator stays on firmly, and does a great job at spreading the lotion. Before ordering I was curious how the applicator would keep from getting soggy. It holds lotion without absorbing it. It is easy to use. I am sorry I didn't do my research earlier. Now that I've experienced how well this works, I ordered a number as gifts in advance of this coming Christmas.

Vive Lotion Applicator and replacement pads
Of the applicators I've owned (several), this is by FAR, the best quality one I have had. My only complaints are that the cord is very short (can't get my fist through the loop to better hold the applicator behind my back, and that the pads are stiff, like styrofoam (not spongey/porous). Regardless, the pads appear to fit on snuggly, and I doubt (based on what I found during an extensive search on the internet), that there is currently a better one available that is reasonably-priced.
Hello. Thanks a lot for your honest feedback.We are happy to have you as a customer :) -Carolina- Vive Health CS
