Overall Rating

I recently received a VoxBox from Influenster, with a sample of Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs. I've been wanting to try Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs since I first saw a commercial for it on TV, so a big thank you to Influenster & Sally Hansen for giving me the chance to test it and share my opinion!

About Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs is a water resistant leg makeup that comes in 5 different shades, and is available in either a spray or a lotion. I received the lotion, so that is the one I am going to be reviewing. This product is supposed to give your legs a flawless look with a glow, and is advertised as being streak-free, long lasting, yet it won't rub off on your clothes. They even say it can cover any imperfections you may have on your legs, such as veins, birthmarks, etc.

How To Use

I had a super easy time applying this product. It was easy and not at all messy like I thought it would be. It literally takes three easy steps to apply this product.
  1. Apply a quarter size amount of lotion into the palm of your hand.
  2. Rub evenly onto your legs and feet, and apply sparingly to knees and ankles. If you put to much on your knees or other joint areas, it will look orange.
  3. Let dry!

My Experience

I decided to use my sample of Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs before going to the beach! My legs don't match the rest of my body, so they really can use some kind of color before going into the bright sun. And what a way to put this product to the ultimate test, I thought.

I started with a quarter sized amount, but I definitely ended up needing more than that. I am a lot of leg, so I ended up using almost 3 times that amount per leg. It also didn't spread out as much as I thought it was going to. Even though the lotion didn't spread out as much as I thought it would, the most important thing is that it spread evenly, without any streaks.

The texture of this lotion was very smooth and creamy, with a light and airy feel to it. It wasn't too thick, nor was it too thin. The consistency is very much like a liquid foundation. 

As soon as I applied the lotion to my legs, I instantly noticed how smooth and flawless it made my skin look. I also noticed a nice glow to my skin, and the fact that it was a slight shade darker. I was surprised with how natural it looked, and happy that it wasn't drastic. I was also happy that it didn't look orange-ish at all! My knees and ankles did look a lot darker, so even though I tried to apply it sparingly as possible, I think it was still too much. So really be careful not to apply too much on your knee and ankle area.

While I was at the beach, this product was able to hold up through the ocean water and didn't even rub off onto my suit, beach towel, or seat covers on the ride home. I showered that night when I got home from the beach, but I don't think the product completely washed off. My legs still had a smooth look to them, and it looked as if I had a little foundation on my legs. I showered again the next morning, and I'm pretty sure the rest of it washed off.  I had no issues washing it off of my hands. It easily washed off with soap and warm water. 

The day after using the product, I noticed that my legs and hands looked and felt really dried out. It has me wondering if there is anything in this product that helps with moisturizing or hydrating. 

Overall, I liked this product and I would definitely purchase it to use again. I think I would probably purchase the spray version, because I think it would be a lot easier to apply, especially for someone with a lot of leg!

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Even though I received this product free of charge, it in no way effects my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
