Beauty Protection: Brush On Block…For Women On The Go!

July 26, 2012 • Beauty, Fashion Blog


Periodically I get to try something that makes me want to slap my forehead and say “why the hell didn’t I think of it?” Brush On Block Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen by Susan Posnick Family is one of those products.

Susan Posnick is an accomplished beauty professional and skincare expert who has countless celebrity clients. She did not come to realize her true calling, however, until she was diagnosed with skin cancer in the late 1990’s. It is then that her life work came clearly into focus and early research for Brush On Block commenced.

Susan first began experimenting with mineral powder skin products over a decade ago. She loved the natural components, ease-of-application, instant coverage, and non-irritating attributes of mineral formulations. After developing a line of high-end mineral powder cosmetics, a mineral-based sunscreen that was suitable for the entire family was the obvious next phase. Brush on Block just became available last March!

Brush On Block contains the naturally-occurring active sunscreen ingredients titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, to provide full-coverage, invisible, natural mineral sun protection that you simply brush on.  It’s a non-irritating, sweat and water resistant sunscreen that comes in a self-dispensing, refillable brush. Unlike chemical sunscreens which work by being absorbed into the skin, Brush On Block features natural minerals which sit on top of your skin and reflect the sun’s rays away from your body. Since it is not absorbed into the skin, Brush On Block is less likely to irritate the skin or clog pores, making it ideal for people with acne-prone or sensitive skin. No more messy, greasy lotions, sticks and sprays. Hallelujah!

So I personally love having mine in my makeup bag for those hot summer days when I’m spending more time outside than intended and/or my makeup and therefore sunscreen has slid off my face! Granted, I always apply some form of SPF to my face in the morning before I apply my makeup, but by 2pm who knows if I still have an on? I can just brush some of this over my makeup and I am protected again. Not to mention I can easily put it on my children and not have to endure greasy hands and enduring the screams I get when I go after them with lotion. Brilliant!

Brush on Block provides Broad Spectrum SPF 30 protection for the entire family. With its easy brush-on application, it’s easy to use, re-application is a breeze and you can take it everywhere for effortless sun protection whenever you need it. Now I have no excuses! Neither do you.

Brush on Block, $24.95 (includes shipping)
