Doing Drugstore: Studio 35 Spray-On Glow For Legs

A few weeks ago, I was headed to a cocktail-dress-type event, and I wanted something to give my pasty white legs a bit of a boost, but I didn't have time for a self-tanner. I headed to Walgreens looking to try out Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs ($13.50) but alas, they were sold out of the appropriate shade for my skin tone. Instead, I opted for the less expensive Studio 35 Beauty Glow for Legs ($10), which I found in the underwear, socks, and nylons aisle. "It's like pantyhose in a can!" the label proclaims. Depending on how you view it, that could be a good or bad thing. Tights, I like; hose, I don't. To find out my results, keep reading.

I've had some bad luck with spray-on tanners in the past, so I was concerned with splotching and streaking with this spray-on "leg makeup." However, I was impressed with the surprisingly easy application, and the product, which dried very quickly, didn't rub off throughout the day. The Light Glow shade I picked, one out of four available, provided a soft, subtle, and flattering enhancement to my legs. Bonus? It's scent-free and washed off easily upon showering. Tip: You must absolutely put something under your feet, like a plastic garbage bag or old towel, while applying. Otherwise, you'll end up with a makeup-stained floor. My only complaints? The spray-on had a slightly tacky-to-the-touch feel, and the finish was just a bit too matte for my preference. If you are looking for shiny legs à la Gwyneth, this product is not for you. But if you need just a bit of an enhancement, without a fake glow or uneven finish, this one's full of win.

Hmm, this might be something I have to look into. :) My upper body is a little tan from summer, but my legs, not so much.

While I've not used this brand, I do use the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs, and love the results. It's so much easier than scheduling in a spray tan when all I want to do is wear a skirt one day that week. The color is natural, and it actually makes my legs feel very smooth--I believe their advertising claims that the smoothness is due to the Vitamin K in the product. It also helps to reduce the appearances of veins (admittedly, now I sound like an infomercial). For you good shoppers out there, I think that I saw the Sally Hansen product on sale at Target recently for $6.99!! I'll pick this brand up next time I'm at the store ... there's nothing like a good faux-tanning product for a fair skinned redhead like myself!
