UV SKINZ *GIVEAWAY*

C L O S E D

Rhonda Sparks lost her 32 year old husband to skin cancer in 2001.

She decided her life's mission would be to raise awareness about the disease anyway she could. Getting kids covered all over the world is an impactful way to make a difference and thus, UV Skinz was born.

UV Skinz is not an afterthought as are swimshirt lines for other national companies that carry multiple clothing lines. UV Skinz produces swimshirts and focuses on providing the highest quality, hippest designs so that kids literally want to "Live in our Skinz" and not take them off.

UV Skinz customer service, attention to detail, responsiveness and experience together give us that extra measure of value which inspires customer loyalty.







MY REVIEW

My children spend a lot of time outdoors in the summertime. Our summers are short and we love to feel the sun on our faces, but we are very aware of the dangers of the sun. Sunscreen and sunhats are a wonderful thing, but I have found something which kicks sun protection to a new level...UV SKINZ.

UV Skinz generously sent us a swim shirt for Emily to review. And, let me tell you, she has been getting many chances to give it a try as she visits our local swimming hole daily. At our local swimming hole there is little to no shade and the sun beats down on the swimmers.

Emily has been wearing her hot pink UV Skinz and she really loves it. She puts it on when she leaves and when I pick her up three or four hours later, she is still wearing it. I don't need to worry about her forgetting to re-apply sunscreen. (which she would likely forget to do) She likes that the shirt doesn't get heavy and water laden as she wears it to swim, and that it dries quickly once she is out of the water.

It is quite honestly a second skin. She likes the look of it. I love the protection it gives her in the sun. While it may be a second skin, the swim shirt is not skin tight, it gives her some breathing room.

The swim shirt is very well made, the quality is excellent. It has great features, like a head opening that is large enough to get through without struggling, and the back label has a place for your child's name. Not to mention the affordability of the swim shirt.

I have been thrilled to learn that her swimming buddy has also taken an interest in the shirt. Emily was able to educate her friend on the dangers of the sun and the benefits of the UV Skniz shirt. Emily even gave her friend the chance to wear the swim shirt for an afternoon. When I picked them up, Emily's friend was very enthusiastic about the shirt as well!



The dangers of the sun are very real, and our education of the sun has come a long way.

UV Skinz is an amazing product that every parent should have on their child. We have all heard the stats on your chances of skin cancer with just one bad childhood burn. UV Skinz is a smart addition to other skin protection.

It just makes sense to slip UV Skinz on when you head out into the sun!

This mom gives UV Skinz two thumbs up and so does her daughter.





There is still lots of summer left....and now is your time to save!

Buy your UV Skinz at a great discount with their end of summer sale.

Auriette said...

I am following you on Twitter, username Auriette

I don't know if my first entry went through. First it said there was a problem, but when I hit the back button, it said my entry had been posted. In case it didn't get through, I would love to have the short-sleeved men's shirt in Feather Gray for my husband in XL or really any color in XL or 2XL. I know supplies are limited, on the lighter colors at least. My husband always mows the grass for my mom since my dad got cancer and has passed. I'd love to give him a comfy and protective shirt to wear.
