>UV Skinz Review and Giveaway

>




In case you did not know - May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Rhonda at UV Skinz has given me an awesome opportunity to review UV Skinz and host a giveaway.






About UV Skinz:
UV Skinz is one of the original companies to design and manufacture protective sun wear. The company was founded by Rhonda Sparks, a mom of three in 2005 after losing her 32 year old husband to melenoma. During the month of May UV Skinz has a campaign called "Save a Baby's Skin." When you place an order during the month of May. UV Skinz will send you free UV Baby Skinz shorts along with a flyer asking that you pass it along to an organization or neighbor in need. UV Skinz has had this program for the last three years to raise awareness and ensure that all babies and children are given the proper protection against skin cancer.






UV Skinz carries a line of UV protective clothing which includes: Kids UV swim shirts & shorts, Adult UV Swim shirts & Shorts, UV Sun hats and other UV accessories.



After hearing Rhonda Sparks story and learning about the company I was left in total awe. She is absolutely amazing and I am sure her husband is extremely proud of her.



I received the following items to review:






I really enjoyed being given the opportunity to review UV Skinz. Growing up I basically wore a one piece bathing suit or a bikini. It was usually my moms choice of what bathing suit was on sale. The past couple of years for the few times my daughter did wear a bathing suit I would put her in the same, either a one piece or two piece. We would glob on sunblock. However, after receiving this bathing suit for review my mind ~ and my husbands mind has changed. It is worth it to invest in a good bathing suite with UV protection for her. More protection will always be better than less.



Another thing that I like about it is a light material it covers up your child. During the summer, we like to bring her to the park to run around in the sprinkler. You don't know what crazy people are out there. You just hear so many stories. So on the beach or in public I like the idea of this bathing suit much better than the traditional one piece. I think it protects your child in more ways than just UV protection. I mean, seriously, you don't know who is looking out their window.



I loved the product and would recommend it to other parents.
