Default Is this skin waterproof

I want to get the black carbon fibre skin but I'm not sure if its waterproof or not because when I wash my phone's screen I rinse it in the tap then wipe it dry with a paper towel.

First of all, I don't think I have ever seen a better way to ruin your xperia design, bravo.
Secondly, it is basically a sticker and therefor it should hold on the phone without any problems. (unless it's made out of paper (it is not, don't worry))
Thirdly seller lists item as durable and washable so there should be no problems connected to water contact..

That's about it, have a nice day

Yep, true about design ruining, I have the z1s from tmobile and their request was to make the sides plastic so i wouldn't mind putting carbon fiber around the side of my phone since it's not real metal anyways lol

Nope, but there is an advantage, we get better signal than iPhone and galaxies (probably) lol
