I can't find one on line and i can't find a big enough one in the old fashioned boxes of body powder. With hot weather already here both my husband and I slather on the baby powder and we need big puffs so it doesn't end up all over the floor.
Many thanks.

I've seen them at both Walmart and Target. Look in the section that has things like nail clippers and eyelash curlers.

^ Agree with target. Also, go to Ulta or a beauty supply store nearby.

I found them online. But you should get this one for your husband just as a prank:

Amazon.com: Bella Il Fiore Shimmer Powder Puff, Pink with Silver Shimmer, 8 Ounce: Beauty

Say its all you could find. It has glittery powder inside as if the wand wasn't bad enough. LOL

But for real:

There is a ton on ebay under: large body powder puff

I can't believe this item which was a staple for every mother and grandmother for generations is so hard to find. DH looked at 2 targets and 2 walmarts and called several Ulta without success. The $1.99 on amazon (Diana) had terrible reviews. We will order from the Vermont Country Story- how could I have forgotten that wonderful source- tonight. Also going to get White Shoulders Dusting powder from them too.

So tell me younger women---Do people not use body powder anymore? It would seem so since it is so hard to find.

I use body powder and for years I'd just tip the bottle onto my hand and pat it on. Until I bought the Jean Nate powder and now I fill that container. I prefer the puff, but honestly, it's not necessary.... and having a large container of powder can be problematic for space challenged.

And having curious kitties on occasion knock it off the counter and spill it all over when you're at work, and then walk all through it and track it EVERYWHERE isn't fun either... although I laughed when I walked into the house.... looked like a crime scene already dusted for paw prints.

Oh I love those things, I grew up in New Zealand and we used to have them made out of sheepskin.

Just lovely....a real blast from the past too!

I've never seen them in Australia, I'll see if I can find a link.

ETA they're like good hairbrushes, if you buy one you'll never need to buy another.

LInk - I stand corrected - these are from Oz
