The lovely Christine from Divine Legs kindly sent me a box of goodies to try this winter season. Divine Legs are a monthly subscription service that provide hosiery and socks for men and women. Christine included in the box her Beauty Balm tights and a pair of hold-ups.
The Beauty Balm tights are an innovative type of hosiery that improves circulation, stays put and also enhances the look of your complexion. They are available in powder and black but Divine Legs are working hard on producing new shades. I tried this out for the first time one evening while out for drinks; perfect for a test run. I tend to buy tights a size larger in most retailers as this prevents tights from falling down. However, these Beauty Balm tights were very snug and barely drooped at all. You can feel the support it gives you and see from the quality of the tights how they blend your natural complexion. The only downside to this for me was the shade; powder, but like I mentioned - Christine is working on new shades for the near future. If you're fair skinned, then by all means opt for the powder. Otherwise opt for the black which undoubtedly would be perfect for winter, especially as the tights provide better circulatory benefits than any others.
The hold-ups I was most apprehensive about, as I've never really had a good experience with them; they either ladder easily, are of terrible quality or don't hold up. These however, were a pleasant surprise. Not only did they hold up, they did not budge an inch. Not to mention these are of very high quality and luxurious to the touch. Everything you want hold-ups to be and even more perfect for this coming Valentine's Day.
I would highly recommend this service, especially for those who wear tights to work and in the evenings. Such a simple service can make you feel a million dollars, and it teaches you to appreciate good quality workmanship. Why spend so much money buying countless tights that rip on the first wear? Not everyone is blessed with the ability to use their own legs, so it's only right to look after ours, when they go through so much to support us!
