UV Skinz Review & Giveaway!!! (CLOSED)

It’s our “WEEK OF GIVEAWAYS SUMMER CELEBRATION” Be sure to check out the sidebar for our giveaways-new ones being added EVERYDAY! 

UV Skinz recently sent sun protective swim shirts and shorts for my little girls to review on our trip to Florida. I was so excited to know that wearing these adorable UV Skinz swimshirts and shorts would protect my girls from 98% of the suns harmful rays!

Even though we are back from the Sunshine State and back in Manitoba where we do not experience the same heat, we still have to be careful. UV Skinz was started by Rhonda Sparks after her husband Darren passed away at the age of 32. Rhonda was left with 3 young boys and a passion to make Sun protective clothing more readily available!

UV Skinz are sun shirts are not made with any chemicals or lotions and the UV protection is in the tight weave of the fabric.

Not only are UV Skinz protecting my little girls skin, they are also super cute! With so many different styles and colors to choose from I like that UV Skinz has something for everyone!

Here are some more great things to LOVE about UV Skinz:
  • UPF 50+ protection
  • Loose Fitting
  • UVA & UVB protective
  • Chlorine Resistant 
  • Quick Drying
  • Can be worn as a shirt while playing outside or as swimwear
