Product Review: Eclipse Sun Sleeves UPF 50+

It is no secret I love gardening. And to be honest, I would rather work outside in the garden no matter how tired and sore I get compared to working inside the house. There is something about gardening that I love and seeing all my plants and flowers grow beautifully just makes it all worth it. The downside about gardening or working outside though is being exposed to the sun. Too much exposure to the sun isn't healthy for our skin so sometimes I end up wearing long sleeves, which I hate because it gets really hot and uncomfortable. I wanted something to cover up my arms , but nothing too thick and uncomfortable. Something that still makes me feel cooler even working under the heat of the sun. 

About a month ago, I found out about this product called Sun Sleeves by Eclipse. What it is, is a pair of sleeves that you can wear on your arms that is made of the latest patented sun guard performance fabric that blocks at least 98% of the harmful UV rays. It's another type of product that you can use to protect yourself from the harmful sun besides using sunscreen. The people of Eclipse Sun Sleeves were so nice to send me two pairs of Sun Sleeves- a pair for my husband and a pair for me.  Read below to further understand about the product.

My Review:

- Yes it is cool to wear because of the type of fabric it is made of, quick drying and odor-free. 

- It is stretchy so it stays put while I am working away. Nothing slips off. 
- The sleeves are not only perfect for when you are gardening, but you can also wear it in all kinds of outdoor activities. 
- Eclipse Sun Sleeves are also wonderful layering piece for colder season. It is nice to know that this product can be used in any types of activities no matter what the season is.

  1. A good product to protect your from the sun, I like it!

  2. Eclipse Sun Sleeves are a super idea. I always get spots on the front of my sun blocking shirts which looks unappealing and unkept. With the Eclipse Sun Sleeves I can protect my arms from the intense Florida sun while looking fresh and clean. They would also come in handy while driving in a vehicle to protect your arm by the window when the sun is shining intensely on your skin. Thanks for finding this wonderful product Adin.

  3. Never seen anything like this before, pretty interesting. I wonder how it feels on a really hot day though. That's great it is quick drying and odor free for all the hot summer months.
