Sunny Beadz Review and Giveaway

Sun + Skin = Tan...or Sunburn depending on skin type and hours in the sun. If your kids ever disagree with you about whether or not to wear sunscreen, get them the Sunny Beadz. Sunny Beadz are made by the makers of Sunny SleeveZ. I had a chance to test out this super neat color changing jewelry. The sol beads change color in the sun! It's so cool! I chose this cute little octopus necklace to test out.

I wore it as I biked to work and as I biked, I realized that since it was a necklace, I couldn't see it change color which defeated the whole purpose! As the day went on and the sun got hotter, students and colleagues noticed that the beads on my necklace had changed colors when going from inside the classroom to outside. This gave me a chance to tell them about how the necklace works.

The ultraviolet light detection beads change color instantly in the sun to alert the user of harmful UV rays. The stronger the UV rays, the deeper the beads color. The beads turn off-white when there is no UV light to shine on them. This is a really neat product to help teach kids about wearing sunscreen and as well as remind them to wear it. You don't even have to wear it, you could attach it to a baby stroller, surfboard, golf bag, lunch box or purse! As you do your daily routine out in the sun, it's a cool color-changing signal to protect your skin!

I don't usually wear sunscreen but after wearing this necklace, I will definitely (attempt) to put sunscreen on more often. Even when I thought the sun wasn't that "hot" or "bright", the beads still changed color which shows me that there is a need to protect my skin.

If I had a chance to do this again, I'd change my choice of jewelery, I think I would choose a bracelet instead, this way I get to SEE the cool color change (and go put sunscreen on) and I can also put it on my family's wrists when they go outside. The necklace itself was difficult for me to determine if the beads had changed color but it was a good visual for others around me to see the color change.

Did you know that just ONE blistering sunburn doubles the risk of skin cancer in later life?
FACT: Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the USA today
FACT: UV rays cannot be felt and are present whether or not it is hot outside.
FACT: It takes less than 11 minutes for the sun to irreparably damage your skin

I'm assuming we all love our skin and wouldn't want to develop skin cancer so let's all minimize our risk and get some Sunny Beadz to help remind us, especially our little ones, to wear sunscreen to protect ourselves.

SHOP: Since May is Skin Cancer Awareness month, all Sunny Beadz necklaces have been discounted (from $14.99 to just $12.99), come with a free bracelet and FREE SHIPPING.
