The product is clear and a bit less runny than your average lubricant and about as thick. When applied on the skin, it leaves a non-sticky, oily-looking sheen that leaves little residue when wiped off.
The taste is bitter, but not overly unbearable, especially if you are dedicated to pleasing your partner. The bottle says "ginger" on it, but if that implies the flavor (or perhaps just what creates the warming sensation), it is barely noticeably with the bitterness. It has very little to no scent at all.
Once applied, the product rests mostly on the skin's surface without absorbing too much, and will last until it is fully washed off with soap and water. Even if it is rubbed in to the skin and wiped off, there is still a chance the effects will linger a bit longer. The plastic bottle dispenses roughly a dime size amount with each pump, so this should last quite some time, depending on the frequency of use, and additional applications may be necessary.
The white plastic pump bottle contains 1.6 ounces (50 ml) of product and is packaged in a white box. An 8-language instructional brochure is included, but surprisingly enough, it fails to mention that blowing on the product is the fastest way to feel a jolt of heat. The remainder of an extensive line of "So Hot" products is also presented.
The first time I tried the product on my clitoral region, I felt a warming sensation, but it was nothing to scream about and didn't last longer than 10-15 minutes if I failed to wash it off. I guess I expected it to be like one of the arousal gels that really get the clitoris tingling, but this left me saying, "That's it?". It wasn't until a few days later when I blew on it, and then it finally felt hot. I just wish the instructions mentioned that little tidbit. So now you know!
Overall, it's an okay product, but a little pricey for my tastes and too distasteful for mine and my partner's palate!
