Spider veins - any good body make-up out there?

I have very noticeable spider veins on my legs, they are getting worse, too!

I have pale skin on my legs, and a bit of fake tan just doesn't do it anymore to try and make the veins look less noticeable.

I have tried Sunshimmer body make-up and found it pretty rubbish (doesn't go on very well, looks patchy, awful colour).

So before I waste any more money I thought I would call on the famous MN wisdom.

Is anyone using a good product they can recommend? Thanks!

veinwave. it's a solution, not a cover up x

theRats thanks!

Have you tried it?

Is it as good as it sounds?

Is it expensive?

Vichy Dermablend or MAC Face & Body. Both are buildable if you need extra coverage. Although if you go with F&B don't wait for it to dry between layers and the more you rub it in, the thicker it gets. I use both on my spider veins and pigmentation marks on my thighs.

I had mine injected (sclerotherapy) with good results at a SK:N clinic.

I second the Vichy and the Face & Body, I'm a makeup artist and I also use the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs for quick touch ups smile
