The consistency of this product is similar to a regular water and alcohol based body mist. It is thin and sprays easily.
The product is not oily, greasy, tacky, sticky, thick or creamy. It has a viscosity similar to water.
The bottle says this is a non aerosol air free sprayer "with a special 360 degree multi-directional sprayer... it even sprays upside down." And indeed it does.
The product is light and rests easily on the skin without being greasy, heavy, or tacky at any time.
Here is the product on human skin. Due to very small droplets being dispersed, it can barely be seen and dries quickly, leaving behind the scent.
Refreshe Body Mist may have some mild moisturizing properties, but not much were noticed. As one would not spray the entire body with this product, or spray moisture depleted body parts such as the hands, it is difficult to tell if it works well as a moisturizer. The product is so thin that wide spread moisturizing would most likely be difficult to achieve from using this product.
However, the product did not dry out the skin in any way, and the reviewer did not notice any irritation or allergic concerns from the product.
The product is glycerin free, pthalate free, triclosan free and was not tested on animals. The bottle says to keep the product out of reach of children.
Tasting this product is not recommended, due to the SD Alcohol 40, which can be toxic if ingested in large quantities.
The scent is said to be "Pomegranate Ginger." The scent reminded me of spiced pears and had a slight "baby powder" undertone to it. The scent was on the strong side. Copulandrone is known to have a rather unpleasant aroma on its own, so often it is accompanied by fairly strong scents to cover the pheromone's odor.
The product stays where it is sprayed and disperses its spicy scent for a moderate amount of time. The length of time the scent lasts is dependent on one's skin type, the amount of perspiration, and other factors.
Pheromone containing products are notoriously difficult to test properly. Sexual response and arousal vary widely even in the same person, and it is difficult to see if a single change in one's daily preparation ritual, such as wearing a pheromone containing product, will really have an effect on those one wishes to have relations with.
This product was tested in our home (without my partner knowing what the product was meant for) at least 7 or 8 times. More than half of the trials resulted in subsequent sexual activity, but as the trial couple has frequent activity anyway, there is no way to tell if the product increased sexual activity or attraction or not.
It smelled nice and blended well with the reviewer's own selected fragrance products. Comments on its moisturizing properties are described above.
The aroma is quite strong at first. One may wash the product off with soap and warm water if the product's aroma is too strong or not to one's liking.
The body mist comes in a generous 8 ounce plastic bottle with an air free multi-directional sprayer. The sprayer works well, and the mist comes out in small micro droplets which disperse onto the skin lightly and easily.
At no time did the sprayer clog or disperse too much product at once.
The packaging is fairly discreet. It looks like a simple bottle of body mist. It does have the word "pheromones" written on it in several places, but nothing about the product belies a "sexual product." The label has a small picture of a split pomegranate on it, and it's a pretty earth toned label which should blend with any decor in the bedroom or bathroom.
The bottle is made of PETE plastic, which is recyclable in most areas.
Here is a rundown of the ingredients in this body spray:
SD Alcohol 40-B, is a denatured alcohol, not meant for human internal consumption. It is an alternative to ethanol, which is sometimes consumed to produce drunkenness. “Specially Denatured Alcohol” is not meant to drink, although it is used used in everything from camp stove fuel, to inexpensive perfumes, to toothpastes and other pharmaceutical products. This product should not be taken internally. However, the small amounts sprayed on the skin should not cause problems, unless one is sensitive to the chemical.
Water (Eau), is self-explanatory. Water is the Universal Solvent and used in many cosmetic items.
Fragrance (Parfum), is simply a broad term to describe anything that scents the product. We are not given any more details for this product other than simply “Fragrance.”
Carnellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract, is made from a non-oxidized tea leaf then turned into an extract. (Oxidized teas are known as black tea, Oolong tea etc.) This extract is purported to be an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties.
Copulandrone, and Copuline-alike, are substances which are difficult to get non-biased information on. They supposedly work similarly to aromatic chemicals the human body secretes when that body is interested or involved in sexual activities (notice the word “copula…” is similar to “copulation” a word for sexual intercourse) but there are no peer reviewed articles or studies on these substances.
Reconstituted Andronone is similar to the above substances, the word is similar to a word for one of the male hormones; Androgen. Again, no actual research on whether these substances work to attract sexual partners has proven they actually work.
This reviewer did want to mention a side effect, although I am not sure if this product or other pheromone containing products are the cause or not.
I found, while using this in the past, or using another pheromone containing product, that orgasm was easier to obtain. I have no idea if the product was the cause, as sexual response is quite unpredictable and varies from day to day. It seemed fairly consistent with nearly every use, and climax seemed to take longer (as is per usual for this reviewer) when the product wasn't used during sexual play.
Perhaps my expectations played into this, perhaps it was a placebo effect. I have no idea. However, I will continue to use the product, even though this is not usually the effect one expects while using pheromones. They are usually meant to attract a mate. As I have a fairly easily accessible partner, perhaps the product actually works in this way for me. I have no way to know for sure.
