Minimize Sun Exposure With UV Skinz Swimwear

Minimize Sun Exposure With UV Skinz Swimwear

Sample received for review. All opinions are my own.


Once the last bell of the school year rings, my kids spend a majority of their time outside. I do my best to keep them lathered with sunscreen, but when I found out there was also swimwear that helped protect their skin I knew I needed some.

Ethan is my fair skinned beauty. His Scandinavian roots run deep and his fair skin burns easily.

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.


I honestly thought I was going to have a fight on my hands when I asked Ethan to wear a sun shirt and hat.

He did give me a “are you serious” look, but once he had them on I didn’t need to ask again.

The shirt is made from a soft and breathable stretch knit sun fabric with full garment flat lock seams for ease and comfort. I can easily say that Ethan felt comfortable in them as he continued to wear the set for the entire day, even when water play was over.


I love that Ethan wants to wear UV Skinz to play because it means a majority of his skin is protected. UV Skinz are certified to protect up to UPF 50+. Less sunscreen to apply means more play time for kids and less worry for parents!

UV Skinz came out with a new line of water shoes as well this year.

Exclusive UV Skinz designed water shoes offer comfortable foot protection for all outdoor activities. Made of soft and pliable EVA rubber. Anti-microbial and odor-resistant. Easy to slip on and off, but even more cool is the fun and unique tie-dye design!
