The sun is shining brightly in the sky… are you ready for summer? It’s time to bust out the sunblock and sun gear! My kids are very fair skinned… so they need sunblock applied constantly throughout the day, hide in the shade and/or the must wear sun protective clothing so they don’t burn. When we swim, the kids are always wearing swimsuits with UPF 50+ (including rash-guards and hats…that is, if I can keep the hats on them). When we are playing in the backyard, they are slathered up with sunscreen or playing in the shade.
It’s so much fun to play outside… but what price are my kids paying? Sunblock only lasts for so long (and tell me the truth…do you reapply as often as you need to?). Plus shade is not always easily accessible. So what are parents to do? You are in luck! Sun Angels has just come out with sun protective arm sleeves for kids! I was fortunate to have the chance to test them out (well, my kids got to test them out).
Sun Angels started with one simple goal in mind: to create kid-friendly, fashionable gear that protects kids from the sun’s potentially harmful UV rays. Sisters-in-law, Stacy DeVreese and Monica DeVreese, created Sun Angels when they were frustrated by the limited options they found for cute, effective sun protection gear for their kids. Very little passed their mommy-approval test, which demanded both function and charm. After spending years slathering on sun block, strapping on hats, and coaxing their kids into the shade, they decided to take matters into their own hands. That’s when they created Sun Angels sun protection gear.
Stacy and Monica not only share a passion for their children, but also fashion, design, and a healthy, active lifestyle. Combining their common interests with Stacy’s background within the pharmaceutical industry and Monica’s expertise in kids active gear, they bring you Sun Angels, a cute, convenient way to protect your kids on sunny days. Sun Angels products are made with love and care, using a 60% polyester/35% cotton jersey/5% spandex (latex-free) fabric blend, which is comfortable and stylish, while also achieving the highest possible UPF 50+ rating.
As you know, playing in the shade is best, but it isn’t always possible. When your little angels head out into the sunshine, we hope you love the peace of mind that comes with Sun Angels added protection.
Logan and Kira love wearing their sun protective arm sleeves by Sun Angels. They are easy for the kids to pull on all by themselves, just slip on and slip off. They give children instant coverage! The use of sun protective sleeves is a wonderful alternative to applying sunscreen; chemical-free, no messy white stuff dirtying up your child’s clothing, quick and easy.
My kids also love the designs on their sleeves. Kira is such my PINK princess, that she was thrilled to slide on her PINK sleeves. Logan is my little super star, and he felt like a super hero when he pulled on his sleeves.
Sun Angels come is x-small (0-12 months), small (1 year/2 years), medium (3 years/4 years) or large (5 years/6 years).
So…how are you going to protect your child’s sensitive skin this summer?
