Haven’t done this for a while, have been a bit wrapped up in real life at the moment but I am going to review a product (oooooooh)
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs: totally lived up to my expectations and is seriously one of the most helpful and amazing products I have ever used.
I am not the sort of girl that is blessed with naturally nice legs. You see these girls with perfect pins, not a mark on them, lovely and brown and slender and this isn’t me. My legs are more likely to be covered in bruises from bundling on a night out, cut from falling over drunk or just abused through random (fun) activities. My legs are also naturally a bit blotchy in places and don’t have a smooth texture to them (back down boys).
I had been thinking how awesome it would be for there to be a product just like foundation for your face, but for your body instead. I have known about Sally Hansen for a while but short of reading the (albeit mixed) reviews online, hadn’t bought any. The other week just before we went out my friend Jo had a similar product, bought from Victoria’s Secret in Vegas. I tried some and the difference it made to my legs was AMAZING. I decided Sally Hansen would be pretty much the same thing so I went and bought some from Boots. At £9.95 for 1 bottle it’s not exactly the cheapest product ever, but I think it’s well worth the money. I liked the fact it smoothed them out and made them slightly browner without the performance of having to have a spray tan. Check out the results:

I like this product, as you can see before my legs were slightly red in places and a bit blotchy. The middle picture showing one leg airbrushed and the other not gives the best representation of the effects this product has. I am AWARE that afterwards my legs look hugely orange but it was an awful light in my room (I did this quickly before I went out) and it was the best I can do. The only downside to this product is that it has lots of glitter in it – it’s not too bad when you are out as no one pays that much attention to your legs up close, but I did find the next day that I had a fine mask of glitter all over my body including my face which was a bit annoying, and still have some on my hands today even though I have bathed and scrubbed since then.
All in all i’d give it 9/10 – If you want perfect pins on the quick then this is the answer for you – just don’t spray too much as you’ll end up looking like you’re made out of plastic – Essex Barbie is not a good look no matter what anyone says.
