This product has the consistency and pale yellow color of oil, since it is made up of a variety of different plant oils and extracts. It's fairly runny, so it must be applied directly to the clitoral region or on to the fingers and then quickly rubbed in to that same area. After partial absorption of the key ingredients occurs, the remaining product will leave a slightly slick oily film on the skin.
This product does not contain any parabens or L-Arginine, an amino acid often used in other sexual stimulants. The full ingredient list (in layman's terms) contains: Olive fruit oil, Oleyl Alcohol, Prickly Ash Fruit Extract, Neem Leaf and Flower Extract, Coccina Indica Leaf Extract, Eggplant Fruit Extract, Aloe Fruit Extract, Henna Extract, Holy Basil Leaf Extract, Basil Extract, Turmeric Extract, Coral Weed Extract, and Jojoba Seed Oil.
As one can see, it's a predominantly "natural" mix of ingredients, without the use of lab created compounds or preservatives.
Because this product is derived from a multitude of natural plant extracts, it has a very mild but fresh herbal scent that tends to linger until the product is washed off. The top note seems to be the basil scent blended with the jojoba oil.
Although there are no indications on the packaging advising against ingesting this serum, don't use it for enhanced stimulation prior to oral sex. The taste is extremely overpowering, unpleasant, and bitter.
After application, it can take up to 3 to 5 minutes for the product to start working. Opinions on how long this product lasts may vary. Typically, the desired effect may be felt for up to 45 minutes after application. Additional applications may be applied.
It cleans up easily with soap and water or a feminine hygiene wipe. If left on, the product does not absorb entirely into the skin, and will more than likely leave an oily residue.
How long is the product good for? There is an illustration on the back of the package that indicates the product should be used within 24 months, although the packaging does not include a manufacturing date.
The packaging makes no mention of whether or not there are certain materials it is not compatible with, such as condoms or toys, which is valuable information that most users would probably want to know about.
Due to the lack of chemical parabens, which are used as preservatives in many body products, System JO has packaged each dose in to 12 individually sealed, soft-casing, green colored gel ampules. These sit upright in a paper tray in individual slots. Caution must be taken to not leave these around, as they may be mistaken for medications. There is no indication whether the casings are water-soluble, and a test under warm running water did not result in immediate disintegration of the capsule, so after use just discard in the trash, as these may be made of some type of soft plastic. Keep capsules away from extreme heat. Due to their small size, they are very portable, but should be placed in a plastic bag for transport.
The smaller end is the part that can be twisted several times until it breaks off; however, it is much easier and faster to use a pair of scissors. Using one's teeth is not advised; should it get on one's tastebuds, it could be a real mood killer! Once opened, the full amount of the product can be squeezed out without any waste.
How long will a box last? That typically will depend on how often you are re-applying and having sex. Twelve applications, on average 6-12 sessions.
For presentation, the product gets a plus. For overall value, not so much, as only 12 single-use applications are included. It still does what it's intended to do, though. I began to feel the tingling sensation within 2 minutes of application; however, it only lasted about 20 minutes total for me until the effect began to wear off. It can certainly speed things up as you work your way to orgasm.
I did feel a little nauseous after I tasted it. "Well, why'd you taste it, silly?" you might be wondering. Nowhere on the packaging does it advise against it and, well, someone had to warn the rest of you so your partner won't be licking the kitty immediately after use. Right? I do think the company should include a warning about this point on the packaging.
