These Genius UV Detection Stickers Tell You When to Reapply Sunscreen

Read next

Sunburn is a literal pain. Now there is a way to take the guesswork out of knowing when to reapply your sunscreen. SPOTMYUV is the first clinically proven UV detection sticker that can tell you if your sunscreen is working. 

The small clear SPOTs go on clear and change to purple to let you know when the SPF has worn away. The color change is reversible, so they will last through multiple sunscreen applications.


You can wear SPOTs on any part of the body where skin is exposed. The SPOTs are waterproof, sweat-resistant, hypoallergenic and will last all day. SPOTMYUV’s patented dermatrue skin mimicking technology allows sunscreen to wear off the sticker at the same rate as it wears off your skin as you run, play and swim. These are perfect to throw in your bag or you kid’s camp backpack.
