Fruity love is thin, but not as thin as previous oil based lubricants I've tried. Add a small pool to your lover's lower back and if they'd turn, the massage lotion would surely follow gravity. The flip top bottle, while annoying for lubricants, is ideal in my opinion for massage lotion as you tend to need more. And pouring too much just means a longer massage for your partner. It glides on nicely, but as it starts to dry, it does feel a bit sticky. It is supposed to have a warming quality that gets warmer if you blow on it, but it didn't seem any different than my other non-warming massage lotions.
The particular kind of Fruity Love I got to try is one that is labeled as raspberry/grapefruit. I was certainly intrigued to try this interesting combination of two fruits I definitely love. The scent is very faint, and it smells sweet to me with just a hint of raspberries.
I ran my tongue along my partners spine and it did taste sweet and again I could detect a very subtle hint of raspberries, but not enough that I would have known that was what I was tasting if I had not read the bottle. It was so subtle that I may be willing myself to taste something besides sweet. I cannot detect any presence of grapefruit. The aftertaste is slightly artificial, but quickly dissipates. The aftertaste is better than most previous flavored massage lotions and lubricants that I have tried.,
This massage lotion did not last as long as my other (oil based) massage oils simply as it has a water base. It became tacky after the product was rubbed in, thus ending the massage unless I wanted to apply more product. This is one lotion I can't imagine falling asleep covered in. It does rinse off very easily with water though. And while it doesn't stain my sheets, it does leave a residue that comes off during a run in the washer.
While this product has a very faint pleasant aroma and a barely sweet taste that doesn't linger in your mouth after, it is just mediocre to me. The scent nor flavor were strong enough for either of us to distinguish what it was supposed to be, the warming effect really didn't stand out, and the fact this product must be rinsed off after use makes it more of a annoyance than a sexy turn on. It is nice that it didn't stain my sheets and that I wasn't concerned about his (or my own) hands being covered in this and still finding their ways to my sensitive areas, but that isn't enough of a draw to make this a good choice for a massage lotion.
There is a peel off label underneath of the cap on this, which assures no one else has used this previously. And, to my shock, this is one of the few massage lotions I own that actually has an expiration date (January 10, 2011 for those that are curious).
The flip top is convenient for use, though I don't tend to trust these containers to not leak after time while lying on their side in a drawer. I tend to store them upright and would not necessarily trust this in my luggage.
