Summer Must-Have: Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Spray

Ladies, let’s face it – the odds of achieving a fab natural tan in Ireland are slim to none. And that is why our trusty Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs is going to be our best friend this summer. 😉

After recently sharing my thoughts on the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs lotion (see here), Sally Hansen asked me would I like to test and share my thoughts on the spray version. I was very familiar with the spray already and knew I liked it so I straightaway obliged. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs spray is one of those iconic cult beauty products every lady should own. Adored by celebrities throughout the decades, there’s no surprise as to why it’s so popular.

Like the lotion, it’s essentially leg make up – brilliant for covering up bruises, veins and other imperfections. It’s the key product in achieving the appearance of silky smooth, flawless legs. I personally love having a nice bronzed glow on my legs when wearing skirts or dresses – it just pulls an entire look together, and can make your pins look firmer and more elongated. Who doesn’t want that?

Not only do I like to apply this on my legs, it also works perfectly on the arms, shoulders and chest area. It gives you a gorgeous glowy tan in an instant, which is ideal for any last minute events, or when you’re too lazy to do tan the night before. I also love the fact that this product is water and transfer-resistant. It will come off with a gentle scrub in the shower.

The spray comes in 4 different shades: ‘Light Glow’, ‘Medium Glow’, ‘Tan Glow’ and ‘Deep Glow’. I tried the ‘Tan Glow’ shade and you can see the huge difference it makes to my pale legs – and this didn’t even require a lot of product!

Before applying this, preparation is key. If you shave your legs, I would never apply tan straight away – shave them that morning at the latest and wait to apply the tan that evening.  I then apply some moisturiser, which leaves your legs looking smooth and shiny. The moisturiser acts as a good base for the tan.

I lightly spray the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs and rub it in using a clean tanning mitt. Rubbing it in in circular motions as you make your way up the leg is the best method I think. You can use your hand to apply either, just remember to wash them afterwards! Compared to the lotion, I think the spray leaves slightly more of a sheen on the legs, which is always nice.
