The 9v Volt is very thin and runny. When squeezing some out you should be very careful, since it is thin to this degree. It would be easy so squeeze out too much and make a mess. This runny liquid is clear, yellow, and feels oily and slick on the skin. Since this stuff is oil based, it makes a lot of sense that it would feel this way. It stays very oily until it starts to dry up, which takes about 20 minutes. Even then, after it has dried, your skin still feels very slick and even a bit greasy.
This arousing serum has a very clean smell. The most predominant smell is lemons, but it does have pine undertones. The smell of this product can be smelled when sniffing the bottle itself, or when sniffing your fingers or applied areas. The smell is not strong enough, however, to be smelled when you are not sniffing those areas.
This serum has no taste at all. It does make your tongue feel a bit oily, and does give the tongue a slight tingling sensation.
The 9v Volt is the medium strength of the Volt from JO products. To someone who hasn't used many tingling products, the medium strength is rather intense. The packaging states that it takes 3-5 minutes to start feeling the effects, and that was a true story. After 5 minutes my naughty bits did start to tingle, and as the time passed it did intensify. The packaging also states that it will last for 45 minutes, but I noticed that it starts to wear off before that, at around 30 minutes. It is safe to reapply if it starts to wear off before you are finished playing.
You will require soap and water to remove the leftover greasiness from your skin. Even after it is removed from your skin, the tingling sensation will remain.
Your small bottle comes to you in a small yellow and shimmery black box. The black portion is clearly labeled with exactly what's inside. The rear panel of this portion has the perks of the product, directions, and a warning about if irritation occurs. The back panel also includes the ingredients list and contact information for System JO products. This black portion slides off to reveal a yellow box. This yellow box is plain, except for a bar code on the bottom portion and "Meet your new best friend" printed on the front and back. The front panel of this box lifts open to reveal your little bottle of 9v Volt.
Your 5ml of 9v Volt comes in a 2 1/4" clear bottle with a white lid. The clear bottle has a white sticker with yellow writing that wraps almost entirely around the bottle. The front portion of the label states the product's name and use. To the left is again the contact information for JO and the same list of ingredients from the box. I have had no issues with the bottle leaking, and the lid seems to screw on securely.
The box and bottle are both recyclable, and should be set out as such.
