CoolCanucks Blog ~ UV Skinz Review!!

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

 

 

 

UV Skinz is an extremely impor­tant and rep­utable com­pany that I will NEVER for­get. Rhonda (the owner) cre­ated the prod­ucts and this excel­lent com­pany, sun­block cloth­ing that blocks out harm­ful UV rays, after los­ing her 32-year old hus­band Dar­ren to skin can­cer. Rhonda made it her defi­nate life’s mis­sion to raise aware­ness in any way that she pos­si­bly could. UV Skinz is entirely devoted to pro­vid­ing pro­tec­tive swimshirts and pants for every­one, from babies all the way to grown men!

 

 

 

 

If you have chil­dren, extra sen­si­tive skin, or spend a lot of time in the sun, I would highly rec­om­mend check­ing out UV Skinz!

 

Armed with the extreme pas­sion of pro­tect­ing their 3 young sons from skin can­cer, Rhonda sought out cloth­ing that would pro­vide total UV pro­tec­tion. This led her to start UV Skinz.

 

Their fam­ily story is tragic, but it has lead to pre­ven­tion of skin can­cer for many people.

 

UV Skinz has an exten­sive troop of sup­port­ers, includ­ing Mar­cia Cross, Tori Spelling, and Matthew McConaughey (and being fea­tured in Peo­ple Mag­a­zine, the New York Times, and Chicago Tri­bune, and many more!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

UV Skinz comes in an exten­sive array of colours, sizes, and designs. You just can’t go wrong with these won­der­ful cloth­ing items! It all begins with pre­ven­tion, pre­ven­tion is the key!

 

UV Skinz are com­fort­able, fashion-forward swimwear, tees, shorts and hats that are avail­able in a wide vari­ety of sizes, infants through adults. Most  impor­tantly, UV Skinz offers chemical-free sun pro­tec­tion, car­ry­ing a UPF rat­ing of 50+, which blocks out over 98% of the sun’s harm­ful rays.  UV Skinz are also a fab­u­lous alter­na­tive for kids and babies with skin aller­gies and sen­si­tiv­i­ties to chem­i­cals that many sun­screens contain.

 

 

 

 

I was sent an awe­some hot pink beach cover-up for review and I absolutely love it! As usual, UV Skinz exceeded my expec­ta­tions and cer­tainly did not dis­ap­point! I give a huge kudos to this com­pany, and absolutely rec­om­mend UV Skinz to every­one!! I had the plea­sure of being able to review a chil­drens short sleeve UV Skinz swim shirt, match­ing board shorts and a reversible bucket hat in size 3T! It is so adorable beyond belief! It’s colours are orange and navy stripes, and very sharp look­ing!! I def­i­nitely rec­om­mend that every­one dress their fam­ily in UV Skinz. The cus­tomer ser­vice I received and the deliv­ery time were com­pletely outstanding!!

 

 

 

 

 

Buy It!! You can pur­chase all of these awe­some clothes at UV Skinz

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Kara Vita Canada Clinical Skincare Products Review & Giveaway!!

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

 

 

If you’re inter­ested in find­ing out more about the best and health­i­est skin care prod­ucts in the world then look no fur­ther! Kara Vita Canada Clin­i­cal Skin­care Prod­ucts is located in Canada, and is one of the fastest grow­ing com­pa­nies in the skin care indus­try! Their Prod­ucts are made with phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal grade, botan­i­cal ingredients.

Many of us, and women in par­tic­u­lar, put an exten­sive array of lotions and prod­ucts on our skin on a daily basis as we all know. These all range from cleans­ing prod­ucts to per­sonal hygiene prod­ucts to mois­tur­iz­ers. A lot of these other com­pa­nies use ani­mals as guinea pigs, and test their prod­ucts on them. Kara Vita is a cruelty-free com­pany that does not test its prod­ucts on ani­mals, thank goodness!

 

 

 

 

 

My skin is very dry and always requires hydra­tion. My skin is also very sen­si­tive, and I have to be care­ful as to what I put on my face espe­cially. Hav­ing sen­si­tive skin makes me extremely cau­tious of try­ing cer­tain prod­ucts so I am always glad to come across prod­ucts that are clin­i­cally tested.

Kara Vita Canada sent me 4 extremely impres­sive prod­ucts that they carry for review, and let me tell you — I am beyond impressed with the prod­ucts that I received!! The box con­tained the fol­low­ing prod­ucts: SPF 29 which is their full-spectrum, rub-proof, sweat-proof sun­screen, SPF 30 which is their rub-proof, sweat-proof, water-proof, broad-spectrum sun­screen, their Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner, and addi­tion­ally their PBH Exfo­li­at­ing Facial Masque!

 

 

 

 

 

As many of you already know, I am for­ever trav­el­ling with my hubby to our favorite sunny and hot des­ti­na­tions. I was super excited to have been able to review two bot­tles of their sun­screen: SPF 29 Lotion that pro­tects from sun­burn giv­ing Broad Spec­trum UVA/UVB Pro­tec­tion. The other is also Sun­screen but it is SPF 30 and water­proof! Per­fect for some­one like me who seems to always be in the sun dur­ing all sea­sons! I tried the water­proof SPF 30 this past week­end at our cot­tage and it is won­der­ful! It pro­tected my skin while exposed to 30 degrees cel­cius weather! It was per­fect since it’s water­proof as we were all in the water a lot try­ing to keep as cool as pos­si­ble! Kara Vita Canada Clin­i­cal Skin­care Prod­ucts pen­e­trate deep into your skin and do not leave that both­er­some sticky feel­ing of residue that so many other sun­screens seem to leave on top of your skin!!

 

 

 

 

 

The Kara Vita PBH exfo­li­at­ing facial masque is a win­ning trea­ment that is made to hydrate, soothe, exfo­li­ate, and so much more! This prod­uct makes me feel as though I have just treated myself to a very elab­o­rate facial at my favorite spa!

I’m all for relax­ation in a hot, steamy bath, slather­ing my face in some­thing that feels rich and unc­tu­ous and thor­oughly deca­dent. The Kara Vita PBH exfo­li­at­ing facial masque did just that for me! My skin felt so soft and smooth after rins­ing it off, and I can hardly wait to use this again!! This mask gave me instant results, vis­i­ble dif­fer­ence, imme­di­ate improve­ment. This mask cleanses, puri­fies, renews and resur­faces, and that all added together equals glow­ing, smooth skin.

 

 

 

 

 

Lastly I had the excit­ing oppor­tu­nity of being able to try out the Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner. I was real leary and skep­ti­cal before try­ing this prod­uct as I have tried self-tanning prod­ucts in the past that left me highly dis­ap­pointed and also left me with noth­ing but orange coloured skin that looked hor­rific!! This sun­less tan­ner gives you a grad­ual glow with­out hav­ing to sit out­side for hours on end to achieve that golden tan that most desire.

While a tan can look healthy and gor­geous, not every­one wants to spend their time bak­ing in the sun or vis­it­ing a salon. The sun’s harm­ful UV rays can dam­age your skin as well as cause skin can­cer and salons are not only expen­sive but the UV rays are still harm­ful. With a self tan­ner you can ensure you have a gor­geous tan with­out tak­ing any of the risks from expo­sure to harm­ful rays!!

The Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner glided on smoothly and evenly and did not leave me with that blotchy look at all! By choos­ing this self tan­ning lotion, you can get the look you want in just a few hours — the healthy way! Happy sun­less tan­ning my friends! This is the best self tan­ning lotion that I have hon­estly ever used! No streak­ing or smudg­ing, just a per­fect even tan that makes one look like they’ve spent an entire sum­mer on the beach!!

 

 

 

 

 

Kara Vita Canada prod­ucts totally exceeded my expec­ta­tions, and def­i­nitely gets a huge thumbs up from CoolCanucks!!
