Red, White, & Blue Giveaway Hop :: SunGrubbies.com Review & Giveaway! {Ends 7/14}



Welcome to the Red, White, and Blue Giveaway Hop! Each participating blogger is hosting a prize that is red, white and/or blue, and is valued at $25 or more! Now I'd like to introduce you to SunGrubbies.com, my sponsor for this event!

SunGrubbies.com has been providing high quality sun protection clothing to families everywhere since 1997. They also offer sun hats, sunscreens, sungloves, sunsleeves, and UV protective face masks to help you make the most of out outdoor living and safety.

I received this gorgeous Eco Pullover Hoodie in a small to review. It is a natural cream color and made of 45% organic cotton and 55% hemp which together creates a beautifully soft and textured weave called Flynn Jersey. Hemp offers a natural non-chemical UV protection with the added benefit of anti-microbial properties while cotton offers moisture wicking and comfort. Because there are no added chemical UV inhibitors in this hoodie (it's all natural!), it's definitely the safest, most eco-friendly, sustainable choice if you're looking for natural sun protection clothing.

The hoodie is pretty lightweight, moves with you and has a very functional design. It has a feminine shape including princess seams but it's also not too fitted which I really like. This way I can layer for different weather conditions underneath the hoodie. I'm tall (5'7) and found the body an sleeves to be quite generous in length. I probably could have sized down to an XS to get a slimmer fit overall (I was between sizes on the size chart), but I do feel that this hoodie runs true to size. The hood itself will work for anyone since it's so generously sized and uniquely designed for wear as a cowl neck style too. I also like that in a pinch I can pull it all the way forward and practically cover my entire face (I'm thinking this will come in handy at the beach!). The sleeves can be rolled up and buttoned if you choose, or let out for full sun protection on the arms. There are also side slits at the bottom which allow for a comfortable fit when sitting and two pockets that, although fit your entire hand, I wish were larger and extended in toward the middle more. Overall Eco Pullover Hoodie has impeccable quality, craftsmanship and wonderful details throughout.

As a natural-preferring mom, I like to avoid sunscreen if I can for myself and my family. If I do use sunscreen, it's a very natural one from Episencial or Badger. As I've mentioned in other posts before, I believe that some sun exposure is important for our bodies, especially in getting enough Vitamin D. However, I have a history of abnormal moles and due to that I am very cautious about long periods of sun exposure. Wearing UV protective clothing gives me peace of mind and the most natural way to protect my skin during those long periods of sun exposure. My hubby thinks this hoodie gives me a super "crunchy" look but I think it's adorable and can't wait to wear it to the beach next week!

Wearing sun protection clothing does not mean you should have to sacrifice style and comfort, and that's what I love about the Eco Pullover Hoodie and SunGrubbies' great selection!
