I gave Sally Hansen Airbrush Sun Mousse 3.75 out of 5 stars, so I really enjoyed it.
I really like the color it produces, the price point, and how it dries in only 15 minutes.
The color is deep and brown; I looked like I’d been in the sun for a few days. It looked very natural, except for a few areas around my ankles and elbows where the product streaked.
The one thing I really disliked about this self tanner is the smell. It smells really bad, and the smell is strong. It smells like DHA mixed with a gross perfume. Unfortunately, the smell gets worse until you wash the product off after about 6 hours.
But overall, I think this is a great option, especially for a drugstore self tanner that only costs $12.00.
Look and Feel
Sally Hansen Airbrush Sun Mousse is a light, bubbly mousse with a brown guide.
The texture is very nice and light; it held its shape nice and didn’t get runny.
I used a mitt and this one was very easy to apply.
I could see where I was applying the mousse, and the texture was great. It never got runny or messy.
I just pumped a little onto my mitt and applied to one body part at a time.
The guide blended in very nicely and I was instantly bronze.
If you don’t use a mitt, it has the potential to become very messy and stain things it gets on, so be careful.
This mousse took about 15 minutes to dry, which is pretty good for a mousse. In general, mousses take longer to dry and can be sticky.
But I didn’t notice this one being sticky, and I was happy I could apply my clothing after 15 minutes.
Smell (Before Application)
This one smells really bad.
It smells like baby powder, or old lady perfume mixed with DHA. It’s a VERY perfumey scent, and is very overwhelming.
By the time I was finished applying it, I needed to get some fresh air just because the scent is so strong.
Smell (After Several Hours And The Next Day)
The next morning I could smell a lot of DHA, and I could still smell some perfume. The two scents mixed together and weren’t pleasant at all.
I was left with a dark tan after I showered Sally Hansen Airbrush Sun Mousse off.
I really liked how my tan looked; it was sun kissed and natural. I had a few streaky areas, like my ankles and elbows, however. But besides that, I was very pleased with my tan.
I did try the dark shade, I’m not sure if they have other shades. This may be too dark for some of you who are looking for a medium tan, or for those of you who have very pale skin to begin with.
A little of the self tanner rubbed off on my clothes and sheets, but thankfully it washed out.
How Long It Lasts
My tan lasted about 4 days, and as it faded, it became splotchy and reptilian looking.
My husband said I looked diseased, so this one doesn’t fade the best. But a lot of dark self tanners fade like this.
OK For Men?
Yes, I think men who are looking for a dark tan will like this mousse.
Sally Hansen Airbrush Sun Mousse is $12.00 per bottle, which is less than your average self tanner.
