UV Skinz 3-piece sun protection clothing Review and #GIVEAWAY!! {US and Canada}

It's been really hot here in Tennessee! I mean nearly hitting triple digits for the last month or so! Needless to say, that does not deter this mama from taking her littles to the pool and/or water park to get cooled off! Sometimes we just go out to the back yard and have a good old fashioned water gun fight! Skin cancer is a major thing to consider when playing outside in the heat! I've been slathering my boys with sunscreen all summer long. Then I came across UV Skinz!
What are UV Skinz? I'm glad you asked! UV Skinz is a sun protective clothing line, and offer sun protective clothing with UPF 50+ for the whole family! Their UPF sun protection clothing blocks out 98% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays!
Here is a little more information about UV Skinz (information taken from UV Skinz website):
"What we do?
As one of the early sun protective clothing companies in the U.S., UV Skinz is proud to provide the highest quality, affordable, fun and worry-free UPF 50+ sun protection wear for the entire family.
Commonly referred to as SPF clothing, our sunwear for babies, kids, men and women includes swim shirts or sun shirts in the smallest baby UV swimwear sizes up to hard-to-find plus size UV protective swimwear for men and women. While UV protective hats and clothing are best, we keep you covered from head to toe with our carefully screened selection of broad-spectrum mineral block and organic sunscreens, UV shorts and other sun protection accessories....
Why is protective swimwear so important for children?
Most children will experience 50-80% of their lifetime sun exposure before the age of 18 so teaching sun safe skin and eye health habits from day one is crucial. UV Skinz keeps babies and kids covered from top to bottom in reversible kids' UV buckets hats, long and short sleeved UV swim shirts, UV board shorts and UV boy-cut shorts. UV Skinz bright and colorful separates are designed to be mixed and matched with the added benefit of helping you to be able to easily spot your little ones during water play time or in crowded public places. But kids shouldn't have all the fun! UV Skinz sun protective wear line for adults now includes adult long-sleeve and short-sleeve UV swim shirts, women's and men's UV boardshorts, women's UV boy-cut shorts, women's UV swim bras, women's V-neck swim shirts and women's long-sleeve full zip-up swim shirts for easy on and off.
What makes UV Skinz so unique?
Unlike typical rashguards or other protective swim shirts available on the market, UV Skinz are intended to fit snugly but not skin tight which allows for maximum freedom of movement and comfort all day long. The t-shirt like design lets you breathe comfortably just as the micro fiber silky smooth material breathes while wicking moisture for quick drying. UV Skinz UPF swim shirts are also designed with lightweight fabrics, larger than normal neck holes, flat-lock stitching and an absence of appliqués that often irritate skin."

After reading all the wonderful reviews (and seeing Mathew McConaughey's son Levi) pictured on the UV Skinz website, I really wanted to try them. The awesome folks at UV Skinz agreed to send me, not one, but two sets for my boys to try!
This is what I received:
For my 4 yo I was sent the Navy Ocean Camo set which came with a pair of board shorts, swim shirt and reversible bucket hat! (left)

For my 2 yo I was sent the Silly Fish set which came with a pair of board shorts, swim shirt and reversible bucket hat! (right)
Here is the Navy Ocean Camo:
The silly fish:
Aren't they gorgeous? You wouldn't believe how soft and supple they are, the shirts are very similar to a regular swimsuit!
Oh, and if I only had a little girl *Swoon*

We put our UV Skinz to the test! I had been meaning to take the boys to the pool, but they recently just got over having sore throats and colds and I didn't want them getting worse, or passing all their germs on to other kids! So, we went out back and played!
Here are both by boys, just as cheeky as can be in their UV Skinz:

Yes, we LOVE our UV Skinz!! It was so nice to be able to let them play out in the Tennessee sun and not have to worry about slathering them up with sunscreen!
And so UV Skinz, our hats are off to you!
Thank you for making such an awesome quality sun protective clothing for my boys! Not only are they adorable, but comfortable, fashionable, keep you well protected and affordable!

UV Skinz not only offers swimwear for kids, but they also have swim wear for women and men! They sell sunscreens and lotions, and a wide variety of sun hats for women, men, babies, kids and youth!
