Hi guys! I was sent this iPhone case from Skin It to let you guys know what I think of it. Skin It kindly let me choose from their massive selection of phone cases, which honestly took me awhile. I’m already an indecisive person, but this process was quite fun as I like seeing the endless options I have. I narrowed down my choices to palm trees and waves as I love a tropical theme because it reminds me of my ideal vacation. I chose the California Big Wave Pro Case in the end!
I think it’s pretty cool how they even have a customization option, where you can upload your own photo to place on any electronic case from your phone to your laptop. What? That’s pretty cool! I’m not sure what artist created this simple wave design, but I find it beautiful. Simple, yet something that fits my personal taste of a constant reminder of one of my favorite places on earth, a beach. I also prefer cooler toned items as they have a calming nature. Anyways, I definitely love the art on the phone case.
The phone case itself though, could be a tad better. I already have an amazing phone case in terms of keeping my phone protected so I thought this one would also do the same as they contain the same elements of a rubber material inside and a hard plasticy outside. If dropped, this usually prevents the phone from breaking, which is the ultimate purpose of a phone case for me. But, this phone case is of lesser quality as it doesn’t seem as durable as my much loved one by Speck. My Speck phone case lacks an artistic image though and remains in neutral , with black and gray.
I like having both options! One for more personality and one for more functional purposes. So, I think on days when I feel as if my Speck case is too bland for my mood, I’ll change it to the Skin It case for a subtle expression of my personality. I have to be extra careful not to drop my phone though, as I am a klutz and it happens more often than it should.
Ultimately, Skin It has such a wide variety of choices when thinking of customizing an electronic case, but falls a bit short on establishing an incredibly strong and durable case. Skin It lets you go wild with creativity in designing something more personalized to cover your electronics, which is fun for some! It was definitely fun for me! I would love to also come up with another one where I use my own image, but three phone cases is crazy. If I could find a phone case which integrates creativity in design as well as being functional, it would be ideal, especially for a minimalist. But, until I find that one, I’ll have to switch back and forth.
