Drugstore winners: three workhorse products from Sally Hansen

Drugstore winners from Sally HansenThe cosmetics and body products that adorn my cluttered shelves fall into one of two categories: special but somewhat impractical items that I love and workhorse items that I always have on hand. The drugstore line Sally Hansen has some terrific workhorse items and there are three that I am especially fond of.                                                                                       samples, affiliate links

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Beige Glow

Airbrush Legs is a product that is always on my shelf. I am not a big fan of pantyhose, but I’m also not a big fan of pasty white legs. This takes care of that problem in just seconds, covering up any veins and imperfections and making legs look thinner all at the same time. Check out my leg – this is about 2 weeks after a spray tan, so it’s flaking off and I have uneven patches…yuck.

Here is the same leg literally seconds later after applying Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Beige Glow.

After Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Beige GlowThis spray on leg makeup makes natural legs look wonderful. Just shake the bottle and spray – I stand in the shower so that any side spray is easily washed away. Don’t spray too close to your legs or you’ll lose the airbrush effect – if that happens, I blend it out with a makeup sponge. The finish has a bit of a gleam that really looks pretty. I find that the spray lasts all day without wearing off and is water-resistant, although it’s not perfect on extremely hot and sweaty days. It washes off easily with soap and water and is just so comfortable for those days when I can’t even stand the thought of putting on pantyhose. It’s especially awesome for correcting self tanner ‘oops’.

Sally Hansen has tons of nail polish options in shades that range from special occasion to workhorse perfect. I am a big fan of the nail polish because the applicator brush is fantastic – it’s flat and wide, so I can cover an entire nail in just two strokes. My workhorse shade is #325 Au Nature-al ($7.99), a perfect nude. It’s classy and goes with absolutely everything. I also love the Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment ($12.99).This clear polish contains avocado oil, sea salt, pomegranate extract and calcium.Talk about a multi-tasker – it works as a base coat, top coat, ridge-filler, brightener, and nail moisturizer. It also makes nails stronger and promotes growth.  Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment

For excellent basics that you will reach for day after day, Sally Hansen is a reliable and practical choice. Be sure to check out the Airbrush Legs and the nail polishes for workhorse items that won’t let you down.  – Lisa

    That nail treatment sounds absolutely amazing. I really want to go grab a bottle! I love finding new drugstore items because they are so easily purchased, especially on vacation!

    The 7 in 1 is a fantastic product!

    I was thinking about useless a self-tanner to see if I could cover the sun damage on my legs so I wouldn’t have to wear stockings to an upcoming wedding, but your helpful photo showed me that it would give me a tan but my significant spots would still show through. Just saved some money! So with that money, I can pickup those two Sally Hansen nail products especially since CVS has a 30% off coupon this weekend, yay!

    I LOVE that nail polish shade. My legs are always so much lighter than the rest of my body so airbrush color is essential for me.

    The self tanner looks pretty good.

  6. Erika | 26th Aug 16

    I need to pick up the 7 in 1 treatment.

  7. Kristi V BeginNails | 26th Aug 16

    I love the natural polish color!

  8. Julie | 26th Aug 16

    I have always wanted to try the leg spray, but I’m too scared to test it in the florida heat!

  9. Emily Draher | 27th Aug 16

    You can always depend on Sally Hansen!

    I know to avoid this spray tan, the humid south would ruin it quickly! Thanks for the heads up!

  11. Honeygirlk | 27th Aug 16

    Yes, these are seriously some of my favorite Sally Hansen products, especially the 3 in 1. 🙂

  12. Bailey | 28th Aug 16

    You can’t go wrong with a bit of Sally. I’ve used countless bottles of the Nail Rehab, but I’m going to have to try the 7-in-1 next.

  13. Cindi | 28th Aug 16

    I really need to try that leg makeup. My pale white legs sure need some color.

  14. Joyce Chitwood | 28th Aug 16

    I really like that nail color. I need to pick some of that up. Very pretty and natural looking. I have some kind of Leg lotion I got from Influenster last ur that is the same thing just smaller trial size lotion bottles. Which would be nice for travel too. I always enjoy ur post. Thanks so much.
