UVSunSense Wristbands

With an early heat wave hitting NYC, we're reminded once again of how intense the sun can be yet tend to forget how little time it takes to damage our skin. UV SunSense wristbands make for an easy way to monitor sun exposure with the simple color-changing gauge alerting when it's time to reapply sunscreen or to get out of the sun all together.

The recyclable wristbands work simply by simultaneously applying sunscreen to the band and your body. When the band's purple color fades, it's time to reapply. When the words "apply sunscreen to this side" disappear, it's time to find some shade. Because the bands sense the potency of the sunscreen, if sun-worshippers take a break, the bands do to.

Each pack includes seven bands and can be purchased from Amazon for $6.
