Review & Give-Away: UV Skinz
In honor of Skin Cancer Awareness Month in addition to the annual UV Skinz Save a Baby’s Skin Campaign, Oh Baby O is very pleased to once again be hosting a UV Skinz Review and Give-Away! (To read last year’s review, please click here.)
If you are unfamiliar with UV Skinz, it is a line of UV protective clothing, hats, and swimwear for the whole family. UV Skinz swimshirts carry a UPF rating of 50+, blocking over 98% of the sun’s harmful rays. UV Skinz are effective, easy to use, affordable, and comfortable.
This year, we had the pleasure of reviewing both a short sleeve swimshirt as well as a UV Skinz reversible bucket hat. The short sleeve swimshirt offers nearly as much coverage as the long sleeve swimshirt. O’s swimshirt is a size 2 and comes all the way down to his elbows. It is close-fitting but not constrictive. O really likes the silky feel of the swimshirt and stays comfortably cool while wearing it. It is still a bit too chilly for swimming in this part of the US but we have already found plenty of use for the swimshirt on sunny days outside.
The UV Skinz reversible bucket hat is our favorite sunny day hat! O wears a hat whenever we’re outside, all year long. In our experience, it has been surprisingly difficult to find a warm weather hat with a good fit. Many of the hats we’ve tried have been too shallow to really stay on a little one’s head let alone provide any real protection. O’s reversible bucket hat is the child size (2-5yrs) and it fits perfectly! The hat feels sturdy in construction, yet light enough not to be hot. The brim is nice and wide providing some neck protection as well. I do wish it had chin straps for the smaller sizes as it does blow off occasionally.
Our UV Skinz from last year held up so beautifully that they are now being used to protect O’s younger cousin. I expect this year’s Skinz will be just as durable. The UV Skinz line is also wonderfully color-coordinated, making shopping a lot of fun!
