The inclusion of silicone in addition to a plethora natural oils gave Teasing an extremely smooth glide that lasted and lasted. It is a very thin massage oil (when compared to brands like Shunga.) Teasing is thicker than water, but will run off your fingers if you aren't careful when pouring. It has that light, silky texture of a silicone lube along with the smooth weight of oils. After a 30 minute back massage, this massage oil was still going strong. But even two hours later, her back was still slick and a little greasy. It was not as slick as it started out, but because of the addition of silicone, Teasing won't fully absorb into the skin. Meaning that this is not a rub it in and then fall asleep type of massage oil--this one is will have to be washed off with soap and water for a clean feeling afterward.
The scent we received was Vanilla Chili Ylang Ylang, and you can really pick out each of those scents in the oil. The vanilla gives it a sweet tone, the chili actually smells spicy, and the ylang ylang has a very strong floral smell. It's a very potent smell. Did I mention the scent is Very strong? If you are bothered by strong perfumes, this may not be the product for you. This gave my fiancee (who is very sensitive to perfume) a headache from the smell of it within minutes. The strength of the smell didn't bother me, and I liked the complex spiciness of it.
The odd thing about the scent is that as it faded over the course of the massage, it began to smell exactly like bubblegum, and that was the scent that stayed.
Teasing tastes just like it smells. I wouldn't recommended ingesting this in even moderate quantities, but if you happen to get a lick of it, it isn't bitter or awful tasting which is a plus.
Because it's so thin, I thought I would need more of it, but a dime-sized application lasted me through a long massage with some to spare. You get 50 ml/ 1.7 fl oz and that's going to last you a lot longer than you'd expect. The silicone really comes out with its enduring slickness that continues to allow for a smooth glide after the oils have absorbed into the skin.
Teasing warms up very quickly and didn't even have that much of a cold shock when it was poured on (it was a little too thin to rub on my hands first without dropping it.) From her end, the heat was most intense when my hands slid over her skin lightly, and wasn't felt as much without skin contact. It isn't a strong burning heat, but a gentle relaxing warmth.
What I really loved about the product, was how well it coated her back. With some massage oils, if you miss a spot on your first application and you try to move your hands to massage this new area, your hands start to drag and you need to apply more. With Teasing, I applied the oil just to her shoulders and was able to extend the massage to her entire upper back halfway through with no resistance. That's a real plus.
For the same reason, you won't be able to towel this massage oil off, or wait for it to absorb into your skin. A shower is in order, but that can just be the next stage of the fun.
Teasing comes in a really classy looking silver bottle in a silver box with a cute design of a fairy on it. It looks completely innocent to me and I had no trouble leaving it out.
Teasing claims to have aphrodisiac properties, but we found no evidence of being affected by them. It was really a blind test since my fiancee couldn't take the smell of the oil and I had to find one of my friends willing to do me the huge favor of letting me give them a back massage. Poor friend, huh? The herbal properties of this massage oil did not breach the platonic nature of our relationship, but in this case that was a good thing. I can definitely see how the warming sensation could heat things up if that was your intention though.
