The Men Pen is made of a makeup foundation type compound that is lightly applied to the face on top of acne, razor burn, or other blemishes. Each stick contains SPF 18 therefore we recommend light use if wearing it in the sun. The stick is a miniature tube a little longer than the length of chap stick but fatter with the same screw type container. Easily can be dropped into your pocket while at the bar or at work. A stick lasts on average 6-12 months!
