Sally Hansen Airbrush legs users....

What am I doing wrong?
Why is it coming off all over my clothes, all over my office chair, all over my seats in the car, all over my hands when I touch my legs, all over DH's pants when I am sitting close to him and he has light colored pants on, all over my bedsheets at night?

I love this stuff- nothing else makes my legs look this good, and covers so many imperfections. I can't live without it in summer.
But it's becoming disgusting and a mess.
I dread riding in other people's cars because I worry that it will get all over their seats!

Maybe I am doing something wrong?
Does anyone else have this issue?

I have this issue with the leather seats in the car. I believe its from sweating. I put a towel under my legs in the car. As far as the sheets and clothes i dont know. I dont have that issue. The only thing i can think of is because its been soo humid its making your legs sweaty and clammy therefore its rubbing off. Because its been so disgusting i havent had it on the last few days.ive felt naked lol

I too cant live without . I put it on wearing only panties (sorry if tmi but this is what i do) i let it dry for at least 10 minutes usually a lot more. And then get dressed. Like i usually do that first then makeup then hair then get dressed so my legs have like 20 minutes to dry.

ive never had this problem. are you using moisturizer first? i don't...maybe that's why? are you using too much? i put on a thin layer...just enough to cover everything and smooth it out.

I recently started shaving my legs with coconut oil because my legs get super irritated from shaving and it's the only think that's slippery enough to prevent the irritation.
I try to wash my legs afterwards, but I do notice they sometimes still feel greasy.
This might be the reason.

that has to be the reason. coconut oil is so slippery. if you have to use coconut oil, then id wait awhile before putting on the sally hansen

I think once years ago- I felt like it clogged up the razor- so to speak.
I might give it another shot though.
The coconut oil works ok but it is super super greasy.

I def think it's because of the coconut oil because it never happens to me and I don't apply anything before.

Honestly it doesnt, If you spray it on ur leg a little at a time, then spread it out with a makeup sponge its pretty quick lol

Re: Sally Hansen Airbrush legs users....

This is good to know because I was going to use it and I also only shave with coconut oil. After trying every product known to woman to get a close shave without looking like I have some horrid disease afterwards, coconut oil is the only thing that has worked for me!

I hear ya. My legs chronically looked like I was attacked by a jungle beast.
Cuts, scars, razor burn, - just disgusting.
The coconut oil is great.
So what I did today was- after shaving, I washed my legs well with soap and water to get the grease off.
Then a light dusting of cornstarch powder to absorb any excess coconut oil.
It seems to have worked better.
BUT- If I rub my hand over my leg- I still see transfer on my hands.
So ladies who don't have this issue- do you mean to say if you took a tissue and ran it over your leg right now- nothing would transfer onto that tissue?
Because if not, I am giving up!

I moisturize first, then spray a little bit directly to my legs and rub it in. But I only use a super thin layer. I had the problem with the leather seats in my car so now I wipe my legs down with a tissue after applying to just get the excess off. Haven't had a problem since.

I have the lotion version, not the spray. I've only used it 2x so far, but it hasn't come off.

I saw that in Target the other day. I was thinking of trying it but was nervous it wouldn't be as good as the spray.
Maybe I will give it a whirl.
I applied it this morning- no shaving, no coconut oil, no moisturizer. I tried to do a thinner layer than normal.
I got to work and grabbed a napkin and ran it over my legs and it's ALL over the napkin.
So it's definitely transfering- and hence why it's all over my chair, my clothes, my car seats, my bed sheets.
Ugh- so frustrating!
