A while ago I created a post about Influenster.
It’s an online community of people who try free samples and post about them online. When a new product comes out and you’re unsure if you want to try it you have over 2 million people that you can trust for their honest opinion.
I’ve gotten so used to using Influenster that I use it to review the products in my monthly Birchbox and Target Beauty boxes. The more you interact with the Influenster community the more likely you are to receive a VoxBox full of free samples to try

This is a review for Sally Hansen – Airbrush Legs. I received this product free from Influenster to review.
First, the product is offered in five different tones. The one they sent me was “light”. When I first opened the package and put some onto my leg I was worried because it was very dark. As I started rubbing it in it turned orange. I continued to put it all over my leg anyway because that’s the whole point of reviewing a product, right? By the time I applied it to my entire leg the color blended into my skin tone just fine. However, I would have preferred the “fairest” tone had I been given an option. I really liked the smell and light, moisturizing feel of it, just as make-up should be.
In the past I have used the Neutrogena Build-A-Tan Gradual Sunless Tanner. I have very fair skin and will burn within 15 minutes of stepping outside. Needless to say my skin is very pale and almost reflective when I wear shorts. I know someone who uses this product so I decided to give it a try. While I was generally pleased with the results I did not like the smell of the Neutrogena lotion. It also caused skin irritation after I applied it — making my legs feel like they were burning. Definitely not something I would endure for everyday use!
This adds to why the Sally Hansen leg make-up was is nice. It is meant to be used just for those special occasions when you don’t want to worry about wearing a panty hose to cover your pale legs. I liked how natural it looked and the product is actually made to even skin tone and hide veins.
I keep it on for about 6 hours and did not have any skin irritation issues nor did it rub off onto my clothes. In fact when I washed it off my skin felt smoother.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a light weight product that will boost your confidence.
Just like anything used to even out your skin tone or make it darker, this product needs to be applied carefully.
- I made sure to shave my legs/exfoliate (not right before that may cause irritation)
- Move in a circular motion from ankles up to the top of your legs (to avoids lines)
- Apply lightly near the ankles and knees (may end up darker in the creases)
- Rinse hands after application
- Give your skin time to dry before you put clothes on
