UV Skinz Review and Giveaway Ends June 12, 2010

UV Skinz offers UV protective swim shirts and accessories for the entire family, sizes 6 months to 4 XL. They Specialize in UV protection and have spent a great deal of time reseaching and designing the best quality products at the most affordable pricing.  They have listened to their customers and are confident you will not find anything else on the market with the same high level of craftsmansheip, heart, uniqueness, and fabulously fun colors and designs.  

About UV Skinz!
After I lost my 32-year old husband to skin cancer, just three days after the tragic 9-11 occurrence of 2001, I decided my life’s mission would be to raise awareness about the disease anyway I could. Getting kids covered all over the world is an impactful way to make a difference and thus, UV Skinz was born . It was this experience and being left to raise our three young boys on my own that gave me the drive and determination to bring products to the market that can help make sun protection fun. .
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. Our customer service, attention to detail, responsiveness and experience allow us to provide that extra measure of value which inspires invaluable customer loyalty. We care about our products and the ability of our clients who wear them to enjoy living under the sun.
Everyone should feel free in the sun wearing UV Skinz. Join us in our mission to GET KIDS COVERED!
Here’s to sun-safe days …
Rhonda Sparks
UV Skinz, Inc.
UV Skinz sells peace-of-mind from the sun’s damaging rays. At UV Skinz they  manufacture UV protective swim shirts and clothing for the entire family (sizes 6m to 4XL) and make it a top priority to provide the most fun, fashionable and affordable sun protection around!  I love this design on the left! Check out the Adult Skinz  HERE
Their products carry a UPF rating of 50+, which blocks over 98% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays (whereas most sunscreens don’t even touch the UVA rays). Most people don’t realize that over 1.5 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year; 1 in 5 Americans. Or that one severe sunburn as a child more than doubles the risk of getting skin cancer as an adult. At UV Skinz they want to help change these statistics by raising awareness about the need for proper sun protection. 95% of skin cancers are preventable! 
It is very fortunate that sunscreen products are available for use as a second line of defense. However, sunscreens sometimes fail, usually attributable to user error, which can result in unintentional sunburn. By contrast, clothing is:
  • Cost effective — A garment costs about the same as one or two bottles of sunscreen, but lasts much longer
  • On average, a more effective UV blocker — Less prone to “missed spots” or “under application”
  • Dependable — Doesn’t wash off, rub off, dissipate, penetrate, or expire
  • Not messy — Spillproof
  • Not an irritant — Doesn’t cause eye irritation or acne
  • Quicker to apply — Covers large areas in a hurry
Wearing UV Skinz means fewer chemicals on your body and in the environment and more time for fun and play with the family. And the best part … the PEACE-OF-MIND UV Skinz gives parents, knowing their kids are staying protected from the sun’s rays! 
With having Four children I am always concerned about  them when they are out in the sun. I do use SunScreen Lotions when I have to but do not like to as my children have sensitive skin so I was thrilled when Rhonda sent my son a UV Skinz T-shirt for Review. I choose to get my son a shirt as he lives outside most of the summer and even though he tans very well I am always worried about the amount of sun he is getting. And honestly he is outside alot!! 
This was a hard pick but in the end My son picked and we went with a great color combination for him. My Son liked the Red and Navy called Jaden !! 
This is a wonderful soft and silky shirt to wear and with no chemicals, irritating seams or appliques that may bother the skin. This is a very good quality shirt and my son really enjoys wearing this alot.
Short-sleeve red-bodied uv swim shirt with navy sleeves. UPF 50+ protection
Kids' swimwear should be fabulously fun and functionally sun protective at the same time. Here are some reasons why our sun protective swim wear is unique:
  • 50+ UPF certified fabric (tight, sun protective fabric weave blocks out over 98% of sun's harmful rays)
  • Elastane threading thoughout (allows for more 'stretch')
  • Flat-lock stitching (no 'raised' seams to irritate skin)
  • Lightweight, breathable construction
  • Unique 'name tag' inside collar (kids' shirts don't get lost at the pool or beach!)
  • FREE "Live in Our Skinz" accessory bracelet
  • Chlorine-Resistant fabric
