Bare Legs Essential

Whenever I go out in the evening, bare legged, I simply have to apply some sort of instant tan with a little coverage to my legs- basically foundation for my pins. Although I have used a few different ones in the past my current go-to is the Cocoa Brown Lovely legs spray which is exactly what I need after having hidden my legs in jeans for the last 5 months (I realise it’s still a little cold for bare legs but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do).

It’s a cross between a leg foundation and an instant tan, although it adds a sun-kissed colour it also has some coverage. Although it comes in an aerosol I wouldn’t dream of applying it straight out of the can and instead I apply it to my tanning mitt and buff it all in. At first it does appear a little dark and possibly even orange but as long as you don’t over apply and really do blend it, you are left with flawless (well almost) tanned pins. That said it probably would be a little too dark for any that is very fair but perfect to anyone that is light-medium and I always apply mine over a layer of fake tan. It then washes off with warm soapy water, although I would say you are still left with a light tint but I don’t think that’s a negative.

I’ve never experience any transfer onto clothes or had any problems with rain/drinks as it is water resistant although naturally I am a little more careful and haven’t warn it with a white skirt. It would probably be a little much for daily day time activity but it’s perfect for evenings or special occasions where you want your legs to look their best.

It’s fairly affordable at £7.99 and a real essential for me now that I am thinking more about wearing dress and skirts, I’d even say it makes my legs look slimmer. There are a few other similar products on the market which I really want to try such as This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle and Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

A real essential in my collection, now I’m just excited for a little more sunshine so we can all get out legs out from under out jeans and tights. Bring on spring!

    I always seem to struggle to find fake tan for fair skin which doesn't go a vibrant shade of orange!
    Haven't got my bare milk bottle legs out in a while, will definitely need to be tanning before then!
