I don't have someone to help me apply tanner to the hard to reach spots on my back but this device finishes the job in the end. What I did to control the "unsnapping/folding" others are pointing out: take two wooden 12 inch rulers and place one on each flat side of the applicator and use a couple of thick rubber bands to wrap around them. It'll prevent the applicator from folding back into its initial position and will allow you to apply with more pressure without fearing the applicator will break. You could also use a wooden back scratcher in place of the rulers. Hopefully the brand will make an applicator that does not need to be folded and is more sturdy.
Instead of the spongy foam (it can make applying to the hard to reach areas on the back look splotchy and uneven), could it be replaced with material similar to the velvet mitt (recommended to apply the tanner for the rest of the body)?

Loving Tan is by far my favorite tanning product. However this back applicator misses the mark. Literally, as in it is impossible to use to get the product evenly on my back. Its just completely designed wrong to get to hard to reach places, does not have an ideal surface and does not even stay unfolded.

Great reaching lotion applicator for hard to reach areas.

I did not purchase this item, it was given to me at check out because I purchased the tanning moose. I was so so so excited when the lady gave this to me and could not wait to go home and check it out. But it was not what I expected, the stick when extended did not stay out it kept folding in and does not provide smooth application. I had spots on my back because i could not get the tanner rubbed in before it dried. Very poorly made product, so happy I didn't buy it that it was just put in my bad as a gift.

This is such a cheap piece of plastic. The sponge doesn't give an even tan and it soaks up so much product. The arm folds up for storage I guess but when it's in use, it keeps unsnapping and folding back up.

This does not work well at all like it says. I received this for free with my purchase of loving tan, and tried it out, and my back is not even at all. Thankfully it doesn't matter, because it's the winter time, and I was just testing it. I love the loving tan formula and have been using it for a year now, but I'll keep getting my husband to spread it on my back. This is a piece of plastic with a foam piece on it for way too much money. My picture is after I used it, so that's why it looks that way.

I didn't find this tool helpful at all. It felt cheap and when using to apply the tanner I was worried if I pushed to hard, it would breaks. It didn't spread the tanner at all just soaked into the sponge.
