UVSkinz review and giveaway

I come from a long line of farmers and a long line of family members who have suffered skin cancer. Farming and skin cancer seems to go together because of the amount of time a farmer spends out in the sun. When my granddaughter Princess was born I wanted nothing more than to protect her from everything that I could. So when it comes to protecting her from the sun we use sun screen and love the swim suits from UVSkinz. What makes UVSKinz suits so special is that they specialize in sun time swim wear made of specially treated fabric that protects one from 98 percent of the harmful sun rays. 

UVSkinz was started by Rhonda Sparks after her life was affected by skin cancer. Rhonda lost her husband Darren to the fate of skin cancer and wants to prevent others from meeting the same fate. The UVSkinz clothing line is available for men, women and children. The nylon and Lycra shirts feel just like swim suit material and are made of a fabric that provides an Ultravilet Protection Factor of 50 or 98 percent protection from the sun.


Adorable Looks available at UVSkinz  



Some of the best reasons why UVSkinz is as important or more important than sunscreen;


  • 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

Buy: you can buy your choice of mens, womens or children UVSkinz at their websit 

Win: one of Annies Home readers will win the item of their choice from UVSkinz.  

To enter giveaway: Visit the UVSkinz website let me know what item you would choose if you were the lucky winner

I apply SPF and wear a hat, but it’s not UPF like their products are. I especially like that the sport hat has a neck flap! Thanks so much for the chance to win! buckeye7081 at gmail dot com
