UV Skinz Review & Giveaway



I love SPF protectant clothing for Avery. Especially now that I've learned Sunscreen can Cause Cancer. So I love to have protection on her arms and legs as much as possible. And I like for it to not be too hot!

I was able to review the Long Sleeve Carly from UV Skinz. I am so happy with this company!
Love the blue and purple together! So cute. I have a couple short sleeve protective shirts already and I like them, but they are short sleeves, they're not protecting too much. I'm so happy to have long sleeves now. The thing I like these for best is swimming and playing in sprinklers. They block the sun, but you're playing in water so they aren't too hot and you're keeping cool. They are like swimsuit material as they dry very quickly and aren't like clothes that saturate fast!

We treasure our family and friends and, quite simply, that’s how we came to be.
Please read on for the reasons why we come to this place every day
and the philosophy that governs us—
  • Above all else, our passion is that kids live Sun Safe.
  • We DO Live in Our Skinz!
  • We know that one less sunburn makes a difference.
  • Lemonade stands breed genius.
  • We believe it takes just as long to do it wrong as it takes to get it right.
  • There is no excuse for ignorance.
  • Do what you love and the money will follow.
  • Barefoot is best.
  • Attention to detail sets us apart.
  • We think, therefore we are.
  • We have all been touched by cancer.
  • Our door is always open.
  • Some rules ARE meant to be broken.
  • Margaritaville is a real place.
  • Our conscience guides us.
  • Chocolate and peanut butter rules!
  • Our grassroots create our path.
  • Laughter heals!
  • We celebrate out of the ordinary.
  • If you do not try, you have already failed.
  • We love our work and we work for love.
  • We believe pizza brings people together.
  • Respect is earned but compassion is free-of-charge.
  • We want you to be a part of our family.
  • We will make a difference. (This is for you, Darren. We miss you!)

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.
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 …

I think it's great that she set out to find something that would protect us from the sun. This is great!!
Best thing is there's no need to re-apply. It's not like sunscreen. You can wash it and it never loses it's UV protection!

Price: It depends. The long Sleeve KIDS tops are $33. Short sleeve $29. the shorts are $18-$23.These are all reasonable priced. I would pay ANYTHING to keep my family's skin safe!

Overall: ***** this has blocked sun and Avery's skin under her shirt isn't even pink. We've been outside for 3 hours with this top on, NO SUNSCREEN on her arms and not even a pink dot! Clear as a whistle. I can trust this company!


 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*

Were I lucky enough to win, I'd get one of their Sport Hats. I work outside on our small farm for hours at a time and that would be perfect. Love the neck protection. Thanks so much for the chance to win!
