Cinnamon SensationsI really, really wanted to like this product. The idea of a cinnamon flavored warming balm really appealed to me, but it just didn't deliver in sexual enhancing and delight. It smells yummy and tastes like cinnamon candy. It makes a great lip balm, which is what I will use it for. Unfortunately, this won't be a permanent addition to bedroom play for us.
I didn't feel "warmed" by it
The Studio Collection Warming O Balm by Screaming O is made to "heat up" already intense situations or to help turn things up a notch. It was created and designed to look like eye shadow, so it will be discreet enough that you can toss it in your make-up bag or throw it in your purse. Though marketed for arousal of erogenous zones, you can also use it as a lip balm. It has a cinnamon scent and taste that will warm your lips a little, which makes it great for these chilly winter months! It is paraben-free, petroleum free, phthalate free. It's non-toxic, so it's safe to kiss and lick wherever you please.
The ingredients are: Glycine soja (soybean) oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), euporbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, cannabis sativa seed oil, natural cinnamon flavor, prunus armenica (apricot) kernel oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Persea gratissima (avacado) oil, tocopherol.
The red tinted lid makes it look like the contents of the pot are red. When you flip the top up, it is actually white. It is an oil based solid balm. The box nor the pot tell how much product is actually inside. It is smooth and waxy feeling, but it tends to feel a bit oily after application to the skin. Due to it being a balm, it will stay in place where you apply it. However, you really have to work your finger around to get a good amount to apply to places larger than the clitoris. I think a lubricant would probably work better for more situations. I tried applying this to my partner's penis for foreplay, but I hated the waxy feeling it left on my hand.
The Warming O Balm has a cinnamon scent that can be smelled as soon as you open the lid. It reminds me of the little cinnamon red hot candies that I love. The scent isn't overpowering and is very pleasant. It has a light cinnamon taste, but it is not strong.
Rub your finger in a circular motion in the pot of Warming O Balm to get some product and apply it to genitals, nipples, or anywhere else on the body you want. I applied it to my clitoris and found it took a few applications before I started to even feel anything. It doesn't work as well as the warming liquid products, but you do get a slight sensation. However, I'm not sure if I would describe it as warming. I had my partner blow on it to see if that helped things, and that was a fail. It doesn't hurt, but it feels like a burning sensation. To be honest, I don't like the feeling at all. It is just unpleasant to me. 15 minutes later, I still feel a hint of sensation from it. I rubbed some on my fingers and onto my partner's penis to see what it did to him. I rubbed my hand around and blew on it to try to activate the warming sensation, but he said he really didn't feel much of anything. It didn't heat up like the warming lubricant we have. I'm very sensitive down there, and that is probably why it felt like burning to me. I didn't feel a need to wipe it off my body, because it does absorb after a few minuets. It did make my hands feel oily, and I used a wipe for them. It was a bust for us, but I like the scent and the light taste of the cinnamon. I will use it for a lip balm. It does feel a bit warm on the lips and has a slight tingle. If you're looking to "spice" things up with warming sensations, I would reach for something liquid. This balm is just too much work, and it doesn't really do what it's intended to. At least it did not for us.
The Studio Collections line is made to look like beauty products and tools. It does, but the fact that they printed the words The Screaming O on the box and on the lid of the pot makes it less discreet. Unless someone is really paying attention to the container, they probably won't notice it. However, it stands out well on the box. You will want to be careful with where you keep it or throw it away. If it was just tossed in with your other cosmetics, it will blend it quiet well.
I really tried to feel warming sensations and like this product because of how well I liked the Cooling O Balm, but it just didn't happen. It's nice for the lips but not for the clit. It's a bummer, because it really smells and tastes delightfully like a cinnamon disc of candy. I will recommend their Cooling O Balm though, as it did serve its purpose and worked quite well.
Follow-up commentary 1 month after original review
I don't use this stuff for sexual purposes, it just didn't create that warming feeling for me down there like some warming lubes I have used. But I love it as a lip balm! I like how the texture feels on my lips (more thick than a chapstick but not too thick) and the smell and taste is yummy! I would definitely buy another pot on sale or with a discount when this one runs out because it's pleasant to wear unlike other cinnamon lip products I've tried that actually burn your lips, this does not. Since we all feel things differently it may work for other women (or men) when applied to their genitals but it just didn't do it for me. It is listed as a lip balm here on EF so I would rate it 4 stars in that department but for being used as a warming stimulant for the genitals I still give it 2 stars.
