DD is a beach baby (well a pool baby). While on vacation, she could have spent the entire day at the pool playing with her new friends. Being in the sun all day, it’s extremely important to keep sensitive baby (ok, I know, I know, she’s a toddler) skin covered up and protected from the sun.
UV Skinz sent us the Pink Flower swim set and a matching hat for review. This pink and flowered outfit has long sleeves and a tall neck along with mini shorts keeping most of her body covered from the sun. The swim suit itself has a UV protection of SPF 50. Did you know that the sun can go through regular T-Shirts?!? So, just because you have a t-shirt on, it’s important to still put sunscreen underneath. With UV Skinz there is no need for the extra sunscreen under the suit.
The matching hat is reversible, one side is completely pink while the other has matching flowers. There is no tie to keep the hat on, but I was pleasantly surprised how well DD did to keep it on her head, especially with all the jump and splashing around. However, if it does happen to fall in the water, no worries because it floats.
On top of using her UV Skinz swimsuit and hat, I also made sure to lather her up with SPF 60 sunscreen, you can never be too cautious when it comes to the sun. Throughout our vacation, DD used these types of bathing suits and barely got a tan yet alone a burn.
Not only do I like that this suit protects her from head to toe, I also like that it “covers” her body. Ok, I know that mini baby bikinis are pretty darn cute, and in our own backyard, under the shade it’s fine by me. But when we are out in public, I (and especially her Dad), are very happy to have her covered from head to toe with no belly button hanging out. I am totally sounding like a parent here, but I like her to be covered up. On that note, I probably have to apologize to my Mom, “I get it now Mom, and I am sorry for causing you mini heart attacks with some of the outfits that I may have worn as a teenager, but not to worry, I have a girl and when she is a teenager, I will get my payback”. But for now, since we are the ones dressing her a head to toe suit is perfect.
UV protective swimsuits are an easy way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the harmful rays of the sun. UV Skinz also carries products for adults too.
