Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Hi! Welcome to the UV Skinz blog! I’m Kalisha, your host and resident blogger here at UV Skinz.  This is UV Skinz first time at a 5 Minutes For Mom Ultimate Blog Party and I am so excited to party it up with you today!! Take a look around…and read on for a Surprise Party Favor Giveaway!

With my new found sun savvy-ness I will be bringing you lots of great giveaways, sun protection information, my own personal adventures in the sun and new sun protection products that I come across.

UV Skinz was established after Rhonda Sparks, the founder and President, lost her husband to skin cancer when he was just 32 years old.  This sparked Rhonda’s passion to raise awareness and educate others about sun protection, but never losing sight of how valuable it is to PLAY and HAVE FUN outdoors!

I feel so lucky to be a part of a such a family-oriented company. I am a SAHM mom to two feisty and loving little girls; Journey-3yrs and Faith-2yrs. Living in So. California has us all spoiled because 80% of the time we are outside at the park, taking walks, or just exploring.  My daughter’s are bi-racial, but sun protection is crucial for everyone–no matter skin type or race.  I became a fan of UV Skinz after I had an opportunity to  review their swim shirts for my personal blog the Mommy Lounge last year. Journey and I both fell in love with the uv swim shirt (she wouldn’t take it off!) and the UV Skinz  mission to prevent skin cancer and get all kids covered.  That is how I came to blog for UV Skinz. I have enjoyed learning and sharing with you so far and I hope that you come back and visit again!

Here are a few ways you can stay connected to UV Skinz;

You can expect to receive newsletters from us about once a month and our goal is to bring you all the latest and greatest sun-safety information possible; whether that be in the form of the best sun screen lotion we’ve found on the market or what the latest medical statistics are saying about skin cancer. And we will always be sure to share with you about UV Skinz special offers or when we get new styles and items in.
