Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs: New and Improved

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs is to the new generation what Rimmel Sunshimmer was to those of us now in our twenties and thirties. Both are instant tans, easy and quick to apply with generally flawless finishes. Both also wash off at the mere hint of a droplet of liquid. This may explain why, once we reach a certain age, we tend to progress and advance to more resistant false tans which, while requiring a lot more in the way of preparation and skill, won't run us the risk of looking like a creature from the deep should we be unfortunate enough to be caught in a downpour (and, by downpour, I mean rain and/or alcohol!).

However, if you're staunchly digging your heels in at the thought of straying too far from your Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs well, fear not, because a new water-resistant formula is hitting the shelves! Available in three shades; Light Glow, Medium Glow and Dark Glow, Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs will now withstand the odd drink spillage or rain shower, only coming off with soap and warm water.



The aerosol can remains the same, delivering a light mist of colour over the skin that is buildable to the desired depth of colour. The cult tanning product will now have a more matte finish as opposed to the slightly shimmery formula of yore. I can only assume that this is to more closely mimic the effect sheer hosiery á la Kate Middleton has on legs!


One of the biggest benefits of Airbrush Legs has, thankfully, stayed the same. It still effectively covers imperfections of the skin; freckles, veins and scars, adding to the "perfect pins" result. Kim Kardashian famously name-dropped Airbrush Legs as the one product which hides her psoriasis scars and I plan on using it to do the same for my eczema scars for an upcoming wedding, especially now as there is no risk of it transferring onto and staining my black and white dress!


Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs retails for €13.95 and is available in all good pharmacies!

  1. My Sister probably owns shares in Sally Hansen at this stage, she goes through cans of the stuff like there's no tomorrow - I just find it really thick and I don't like how it looks on me, but then again I wouldn't be a huge tan person anyway (okay, confession, I'm crap at putting it on) - great to know that there's a waterproof version though, shall pass the message on :)x

  2. I'm wearing it today and have to say loving it. The sparkle is gone so it's a lot more natural. Love what they've done
