Review and Giveaway: Stylish Kids Swimwear from SwimZip + Sun Protection from Coppertone

If you're tired of the same old style of swimsuits for children, check out SwimZip's collection of ridiculously cute swimwear for kids. Each swimwear is designed with UPF 50+ sun protection and a full zipper down the front that makes the rash guard swim shirts so easy to put on and take off. 

SwimZip swimsuits are also made of the highest quality materials to block 99% of those harmful, cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays. That sounds like the kind of swimsuit I would buy for my boys if they make these in larger sizes! Yup, unfortunately, they only come in baby sizes 6 months to 4T for toddlers. But I did get the Sassy Surfer for my one year old, super adorable niece, Keira. She looked so fab in it! :)

SwimZips are so fashionable they were recently spotted on Jessica Alba's daughters on their recent Cabo San Lucas, Mexico vacation. 

And while we're discussing about cute swimsuits for children, let's not forget the importance of sun protection when heading outdoors.  Whether you and your family are venturing off to a tropical location, hitting the slopes or staying around town, sun protection is a year-round must-have for all. 

Coppertone is helping families simplify packing for spring travel with portable new sun protection options:

* Coppertone Travel Size Lotions, available in SPORT, Kids and Water BABIES, can easily fit in a purse, diaper bag or suitcase for on-the-go sun protection for the whole family. Boarding a plane? No problem! Coppertone Travel Size Lotions comply with the 3-1-1 rule for carry on liquids, established by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

* Coppertone Sport Lip Balm SPF 30 can easily fit in a pocket for on-the-go sun protection that also helps smooth and soften lips. Perfect for refreshing after a long flight or in-between those challenging ski slopes! I am really loving this lip balm! It glides on so smoothly and doesn't feel very sticky on my lips. My lips get chapped easily from exposure to dry weather whether it's winter, Spring or summer and this lip balm comes in really handy!   

For my kids, we love Coppertone Wet n' Clear Kids Continuous Spray SPF 50+. The stuff goes on clear when applied to the skin and doesn't leave a filmy white residue after rubbing it on their skin. It's water resistant too and just a little goes a long way! So if you're looking for the ultimate sun protection for your kids, look no further.  This product is 'it'!
