Enjoy the Sun Safely with Snapper Rock UV50+ Children's Swimwear {Giveaway - Ends 5/3}

California summers are brutally hot, but you'll still find Buddy in the backyard digging in the garden or watering plants with his squirt gun for hours at a time. He won't be cooling off with the hose as much this summer due to drought conditions, but he'll definitely be exposed to the sun at midday enough that proper sun protection is warranted. With Buddy's fair skin and my own skin problems triggered by sun damage, I don't take sun exposure lightly. Some sun is important to soak up some Vitamin D, but hours is simply irresponsible. Moderation is key!
 

Childhood sunburns are the leading cause of skin cancer later in life. Guys, it takes just one bad burn! I was not a sun baby, but I do remember getting a a little red on occasion as a kid. A really bad burn from ten years ago on my upper back continues to be a problem and many skin biopsies have come back abnormal. My dermatologist has become a great friend.
I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

Like last summer, I'm protecting Buddy's skin with stylish Snapper Rock swimwear. Snapper Rock swimwear has a UPF rating of 50+, blocking 98% of all harmful rays due to the density of the material used. There are no chemicals or treatments used to achieve this rating at all. With my own skin's history, and with skin cancer appearing on both sides of my family, I just can't risk Buddy's skin.

This is the Rash Top and pair of Pool Boy Boardies we received for this summer from Snapper Rock. I love this adorable whale print! It's easy to mix and match the top and bottom from Snapper Rock's coordinating colors.


Boardies are made from 100% Polyester, so they are quick drying and lightweight. They feature a mesh lining, soft elastic waistband, drawstring, and a velcro back pocket. I really like the Pool Boy board shorts! The fit just feels a bit younger and more appropriate for Buddy's age than the classic Regular style.

The short sleeve Rash Tops are nearly a half sleeve, with a high collar for great skin coverage. It's moderately stretchy, comprised of 80% Nylon, 20% Elastane, and features a flat lock stitching to prevent rubbing against skin. Buddy is picky about tags and such, so we cut it the size tag from the neck, but otherwise he had no complaints about the stitching. It's a comfortable top and doesn't restrict movement and play. Add a hat and natural sunscreen for any skin exposed, and you can rest easy knowing your kiddo is safe to enjoy the afternoon sun.


Boys Rash Tops come in short sleeve and long sleeve and there are three styles to choose from for boys board shorts. In addition to the Pool Boy style we reviewed here, you can choose the Regular or True Boardies also. The Pool Boy style is shorter in length than the Regular (which we reviewed last year), with a wider leg and more relaxed fit. The True Boardies have a lower rise and a non elastic waistband.

Boys Board Shorts - $40, Boys Swim Shirts - $38 and up. Shop now at SnapperRock.com.
