On our recent holiday we decided after being impressed by the Konfidence AquaNappy and Konfidence Swim Float that we would put more products to the test and see what Konfidence had to offer on the beach and sunshine protection stakes.
Since Joshua has been small I have invested each year in some Sun Protections Suits to use on the beach (for when we are lucky enough) but also for use in the garden for playing in .. paddling pools and water trays mean that they are pretty much a standard requirement in our garden.
With Joshua’s fair hair and skin I am beyond paranoid about ensuring he is protected as much as possible, although without the think inch white suntan lotion you find for maximum protection.. you know the one I mean!! So I was really blown away with the fact that both the Hat and Suit also feature the latest UV colour changing technology – when UV rays are present, the Konfidence logos on the suits will turn pink (girls suit) or blue (boys suit) which is fantastic to be able to have a visual aid to keeping an eye on those pesky UV rays.
Both the sun protection suit and the sun protection hat have maintained their shape well, I tend to hand wash items like this and then air dry them to maintain the protection level and elasticity. So top mark on that Konfidence!
Also knowing we were going to a very pebbly beach on our holiday we did make sure we ordered a total must have …. Neoprene Beach Boots!
We had used something similar last year but the seams did not last well and within days of constant beach use they were pretty much ready for the bin so we were really keen to see how these fared!
Joshua used the boots everyday for 4+ hours a day on holiday and has been using them intermittently at home for the last 3 weeks and they are still going strong .. no breakage at the seams!!
Overall I have been more than impressed with the quality and the materials that Konfidence use for their items. My only slight niggle is that with only one version of the sun protection suit and hat it means that my little guy looks like he only has one outfit! I would love to see at least one other colour option so that with having a couple of suits it will look like I have more than one outfit for him! … no biggie .. just would be nice.
