Take It From Me: UV Skinz Review & Giveaway(closed)

June 3, 2010

UV Skinz Review & Giveaway(closed)

LIVE IN OUR SKINZ!
UV Skinz has created UV protective clothing for the whole family! UV Skinz allows us to have fun in the sun, yet it prevents us from getting skin cancer, premature aging of the skin, and sunburns. 
Rhonda Sparks, founder of UV Skinz lost her 32-year-old husband to skin cancer, leaving her to raise three boys on her own. This experience has given her the motivation to raise awareness of proper sun protection. Lets make a difference together and make UV Skinz part of our summer fun!
Distinctive attributes of UV Skinz swim shirts:
-Flat-lock stitching throughout the entire garment to eliminate irritating seams.
-Raglan cut sleeves for full range of motion.
-Added UV protection (UPF50+) woven into fabric.
Chlorine resistant treatment for long lasting wear.

Distinctive attributes of UV Skinz kid's board shorts:
-Built-in swim liner for added protection. (No need to wear swim bottoms or diapers underneath the shorts.)
-Working drawstring and elastic waist for variations in body sizes.
-Breathable, light weight fabric that dries quickly when wet.
-Added UV resistant treatment for long lasting wear 

UV Skinz Baby Skinz & Baby Bloomers 
I had been searching for a long sleeve swim shirt for my daughter, and was very happy to have found UV Skinz!   
 
 UV Skinz also has baby board shorts for girls and boys!! These are really cute, definitely a must have for your little ones!
I have really enjoyed reviewing UV Skinz swim shirt and baby bloomers. It brings me peace knowing that my little girl is protected from the sun, yet she can still have a ton of fun! I also love that I don't have to load on the sunscreen whenever we go out. Over time this will save me money that I would have been spending on sunscreen! I am definitely liking these!! My husband and I went hiking and put our daughter in her UV Skinz. It kept her protected from the sun, and she was a lot cooler than when she wears a regular long sleeve shirt.
  There is a variety of kids Skinz that you can purchase. UV Skinz sells short sleeves, long sleeves, shorts,
 and combos. They come in many different colors and patterns so you will definitely will need to get more than one!
We as parents need to cover up too! What is neat about these UV Skinz is that you can wear them while out in your yard or perhaps while going for a stroll on your bike!
