[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] A classic that has taken me time to love. But, my sunscreen error at the beginning of the week has made me re-look at Perfect Legs Skin Miracle to address the disparity between my very (accidentally) tanned feet and my alabaster legs.
There’s nothing I can do about the Fitflop lines on my feet but an application of Perfect Legs does give a nicely sun-kissed look to my shins that hasn’t budged or smudged and in that respect, it’s a huge recommend. It’s more of a tone warming than a fake tan and it’s enough to take the edge off the (in my case) whiteness. As far as perfecting goes – because it does claim to ‘perfect and cover skin imperfections’ I think it does – a bit. I mean, it won’t cover veins or marks but there is a general smoother look. Personally, I think the strength lies in the seamless tone warming – I’m surprised myself how much of a difference even a light application makes (do one leg first and wait a bit before you do the other because it’s worth noting the difference).
So, this isn’t as blended in as would apply in real life – it’s just to give you an idea of the warmth of it. It rinses away with a bit of soap and water and takes about 3 seconds to reapply. I’m using the M&S link because while I’ve searched for the best price, it’s more or less across the board at £38 – but there’s an offer if you buy 2 or more (thisworks) products to get a Hero Kit.

Oh I like the sound of this. I had a nasty fright this morning on looking down, in town, and noting I’d forgotten to plaster my feet and ankles in some kind of temporary tanner…..horrors!
I recall a product from forty years ago that I used all that summer, possibly by No 7. ‘Stocking cream’……awfully thick foundation-type stuff that I’m sure fooled nobody. I really loathe feeling the need to colour my limbs etc, but I’m a ghastly, morgue slab white otherwise. (I’m far too old to embrace my pale beauty, having grown up pre-sunscreen concerns, and believing that for me, a bit of faking is essential.)
Feet and ankles are such a damn nuisance to ‘dye’. There’s always a bony bit that’s all wrong! (Come to think of it, an ideal product would be a liquid that you put in a washing up bowl, to stand in. The colour would adhere uniformly and voilà, a golden goddess, no streaks or smudges.)
Thanks for this, I’ll look it up tomorrow in town.
they are absolutely a nuisance – this was okay though and I love the idea of standing in a bowl but hate to think of the tide line…
I remember the No7 Stocking cream in the 80’s, it was really thick but it did look like you were wearing tights.. I am so glad things have evolved.
wow.. I’d love to try some of that now.
Sally Hansen airbrushes legs in the cream formula is good if you need more coverage than PerfecT Legs. It’s a bit more “foundationy” than this one. Both are really good though especially if you have bad circulation like Reynards and have mottled looking skin.
Ah, thanks for the recommendation!
