I never thought I would do a blog post on my legs. I’m definitely one of those girls who when asked their best and worst features my legs would have to be on the worst list. I’m pretty short (5″3) with what I like to refer to them as “short and stubby” gams. For the longest time I wouldn’t even wear shorts because I just wish they were longer and thinner (and I work out six days a week too, including teaching a fitness class).
Anyways, enough the whining (cry me a river, right?). I have known about Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs for a while now but I have never bothered to give it a chance. The product isn’t a self tanner, but it’s a rub on spray that will diminish the look of veins, spots, and any other “imperfection” you may have on your legs. It’s essentially like pantyhose without the pantyhose.
The Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs comes in four colours, Light Glow, Medium Glow, Tan Glow, and Deep Glow. Being the pale girl I am, I chose to try Light Glow, however, I did have a friend on hand who is darker than I am (she tans way better than I) to try out the Medium Glow version.
Here are my before shots. As you can see I have a few veins that are visible. Plus, I just look pasty white. I need something to make those bad boys stand out.
The product is very easy to apply. You actually spray it directly onto your hands (it’s pretty cold) and then rub it onto your legs. Make sure you don’t get it on your clothes though. As for drying time, it sets very quickly, about a minute and it surprisingly didn’t rub off on anything, even my white capris that I wore the day after. To remove the product you have to scrub it off in the shower. It is billed as waterproof and I didn’t actually test the waters to see if the claim is correct, but I really have to loofa this stuff in the shower to remove it all.
Here is my after shot. As you can see, my legs to look smoother, and best of all, they are pretty shiny. The product leaves a sparkly sheen on your legs so they literally sparkle. It’s not anything too dramatic, it’s subtle.
Above is my friend’s before and after shots using the Medium Glow colour. In the after shot her legs literally looked airbrushed. I did Photoshop these photos, however, I just adjusted the lighting I didn’t correct anything in them.
I was a little apprehensive in using this product because there are so many items out there that claim to do things and then don’t live up to the hype. This stuff actually works and you better believe I will be applying it whenever I’m sporting shorts or skirts during a night out. I also know that Kim Kardashian uses it to cover her psoriasis which is pretty impressive.
It is a little pricey at around C$15 a bottle, but to me it’s worth it. Please note that it is not a self tanner, it’s essentially just leg makeup. I would definitely use this over a tanner though to really make my legs look fab.
