UV Skinz Review & (Giveaway Closed)

Monday, April 20, 2009

Last year, I was diagnosed with Skin Lupus. It was the first year that I was miserable being out in the sun. No matter how much sunblock I would apply, my skin would still start itching and getting that awful rash.

So while looking around to find great UV protective clothing, I stumbled onto UV Skinz. Ofcourse I just had to give it a try. The product that caught my eye was the long sleeve swimshirt. The swimshirt is great for gardening, tennis, golf and cycling! It offers 50+ UPF certified fabric (blocks out over 98% of sun's harmful rays). This is very important to me, considering my skin problems. The shirt feels fantastic on and isn't snug fitting at all, not to mention it is very light weight.

The UV Skinz founder is a Mom to 3 young sons who tragically lost her 32 year old husband to skin cancer. The mission of UV Skinz is truly to protect our kids from the dangers of the sun.

UV Skinz has a wide range of UV protective clothing for men, women and children. They also have great UV shades and accessories to keep our little ones safe from the sun's harmful rays.

Here is a little video to show you more about UV Skinz.



UV Skinz is so graciously giving one of my readers the chance to win one UV Skinz product from their website. Winner chooses style and size that they would like.

The winner was picked by Random. org. #12. Thank you to everyone that took time to visit and enter this contest.

    I really like the woman's sport hat. I do a lot of gardening and have long hair, so it is wonderful that it is ponytail friendly too.
