Cocoa Bean & Goji Berry- Definitely a new staple in our collection!

Overall, we LOVE this stuff! The cocoa bean and goji berry has this incredibly sexy, sultry scent. It moisturizes deeply, is arousing/sensual, travel-safe, organic... I mean, the only way it could get better is if it came in a bigger tube! The label isn't the most subtle, but that doesn't matter for us because we keep everything like that in our toy chest.

Pros:

Really moisturizing
Definitely arousing for the receiver
Doesn't leak
Cons:
Naked torso on the tube is a little risque, not very subtle if someone's looking right at it

Use

The Intimate Organics Foot Foreplay massage lotion is a deeply moisturizing product that leaves the skin- even the typically rougher skin of the feet- feeling velvety soft and pampered. It works WONDERFULLY as a massage lotion (or just lotion) for just about any part of the body, though it specifies that it is made to be used on the feet.
Because of how thick and creamy it is, it could also be used simply as a moisturizing lotion, even on the hands, feet, or elbows.
While this product is fantastically moisturizing, it does not have enough glide to it to be used for massages covering large areas (such as the back), unless you want to end up using lots of it.

Personally, I bought this product because I (accidentally) discovered that my partner sometimes becomes aroused from foot rubs. We'd never used an oil or lotion for foot rubs before, and an arousing "foot foreplay" lotion sounded new and exciting. The lotion definitely made the massage better, because it smelled good, moisturized, and made rubbing easier (as opposed to rubbing dry skin).

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This massage lotion is luxuriously thick and creamy, and easily rubs into the skin, leaving it feeling moisturized and velvety smooth. It does leave a bit of a residue on the skin initially, but it's more waxy than greasy/oily, and absorbs easily with a little more rubbing.
It has the same characteristics as many other heavy moisturizers (especially ones that contain shea or cocoa butter).
Because it's in a tube instead of a bottle, it's easy to squeeze out exactly how much you want/need, and it doesn't run, so the odds of spillage or waste are slim.

Ingredients:
Aqua (essentially just water, acts as a solvent)
Caprylic/capric triglycerides (fragrance and skin conditioning)
Glycerin (skin conditioning, protectant, perfuming, decreases viscosity)
Cetyl alcohol (a long chain organic alcohol, used for fragrance and viscosity)
Glyceryl stearate (a lipid, used as cleansing and suspension agent)
PEG-100 stearate (a cleansing agent, not safe for use on damaged or injured skin)
Aloe barbadensis leaf juice (skin conditioning)
Dimethicone (skin conditioning and protectant- could cause reactions for some users)
Shea butter (skin conditioning, viscosity controlling)
Aroma (scent)
Jojoba seed oil (skin conditioning, viscosity controlling)
Triethanolamine (fragrance, pH adjuster- may cause reactions for some users)
Benzophenone 3- (also known as Oxybenzone, a sunscreen agent- may cause reactions for some users)
Methylisothiazolinone (preservative- some people have allergic reactions to this ingredient)
Phenethyl alcohol (fragrance, preservative)
PPG-2-Methyl ether (solvent)
Acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer (viscosity increasing)
Tocopheryl acetate (antioxidant, skin conditioning- may cause reactions for some users)
Benzophenone 4
Disodium EDTA (viscosity controlling, "Chelating Agent"- decreases reactivity of metal ions in product)
Water (acts as a solvent)
Alcohol (antimicrobial, fragrance)
Certified organic goji berry fruit extract (fragrance)
Certified organic lemon grass leaf/stem extract (fragrance)
Certified organic aloe leaf extract (fragrance, skin conditioning)
BHT (Butylated hydroxytoluene- used as a preservative- may cause reactions for some users)
    • Creamy
    • Thick
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

This product has a wonderfully chocolatey scent with fruity undertones from the goji berry. Personally, I absolutely LOVE the scent. I wasn't sure if I'd like it when I bought it, but the other two scents (fresh orange/wild ginger and coconut/lemongrass) were out of stock. The scent is strong enough to be easily noticeable, but it's so pleasant that this isn't a bad thing at all!
The scent lasts several hours after the foot rub is concluded, and the wearer may even get hints of the scent when they're wearing socks or shoes. For other people, they may smell the product on you if they're in close proximity (able to reach out and touch you), but only if they have a strong nose.
The taste is very light, and somewhat sweet. Although this product is NOT meant to be consumed, it definitely doesn't taste bad.

Personally, I don't believe this product (or any of the ingredients) will be a problem for most people allergy-wise, but each user's body is different, so it's always best to be cautious.
    • Light taste
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell

Performance

Using this product really is a pleasure, whether you're on the giving or receiving end of the massage, or if you're just using it to moisturize your own skin. It smells wonderful, moisturizes fantastically, keeps the skin soft for hours, and does help to set the mood if arousal/foreplay is your goal.

As is the case with most heavier/creamier moisturizers, it rubs in after a few minutes, leaving a velvety (waxy) film that allows for the massage to continue without reapplication. While it will make the skin smoother and easier to massage, it won't provide the slippery glide of massage oils.

Just a little bit (.5" to 1" squeezed out) is enough to adequately work into hands or feet without any excess, which means that this average-size tube will last quite a while!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Long lasting

Packaging

There isn't any sort of box or carton for this product. It's just a simple, somewhat subtle tube. The tube itself is a sort of olive green plastic, with a tan/brown and black label.

On the front of the bottle, there is a woman's (very flat) stomach, with the words
"SENSUAL
Cocoa Bean & Goji Berry
Aromatherapy Foot Foreplay Lotion",
the "certified organic" stamp, and the fact that it contains 150mL.

On the back, there is the list of ingredients along with another statement about how it's organic, the website for the company (intimateorganics.com), and information about where it's made (Canada) and such. There is also a description of the product ("leaves feet feeling sexy, silky, and kissably soft!") along with directions for use, and a warning not to ingest it and to avoid contact with eyes.

It's a twist-off cap, not pop-top. When it first arrives, it has a foil seal so you know it's safe and untampered with. This tube and cap don't leak at all (though, that may be because it's such a thick lotion).

So, while the packaging/label doesn't scream "SEX", it is a little risque with the naked torso and the words "sensual" and "foreplay".

I expect that this 150mL tube will last at least 6 months with infrequent use (once a week or less), and 2-3 months with frequent use (more than once a week).
    • Does not leak
    • Recyclable
    • Very informative packaging

Special Features

While this product is advertised as a foot (massage) lotion, it also does wonders for rough hands and elbows, as well as regular skin such as arms or legs.
The scent is meant to cause arousal.

Experience

I got this stuff for my partner, as a valentine's day gift. I didn't tell him anything about it except that it was foot massage lotion.
A few days after he received it, he came home and asked for a foot massage because he'd had a long day. I was eager to try the lotion out, so he flopped down onto the bed and I sat on the floor to rub his feet. I only squeezed out a little bit of the lotion (about a half-inch worth), unsure of how easily it would soak in and whatnot.
As I began rubbing, I noticed instantly that it was just so thick and velvety, spreading easily over the skin of his feet. Because it was lotion (instead of oil), it wasn't as slick as I was used to, but it still had a nice silky feel to it. It absorbed easily and smelled wonderful. Even he, who isn't as into scents as I am, commented on how heavenly it smelled (and felt).
I still didn't say anything about the supposed arousing qualities, wanting to see if he had any reaction. He did! About 5 minutes into the massage, he told me he was getting hard, and I finally admitted to him that that was part of what this lotion did.
Needless to say, the massage was cut short when he decided he was more interested in *ahem* other activities.

We REALLY love this stuff, not just because it spices things up and is sensual, but because it smells fantastic and is incredibly moisturizing.
Follow-up commentary
Seriously, this stuff is an absolute staple in our collection. We actually hope to get the other scents (if they're ever back in stock!) because we love it so much. It moisturizes deeply, smells incredible, and makes giving massages so incredibly easy! We might just have to get a tube for each of our friends!

    Great review. Have you checked yet to see how long it lasts? 5 minutes isn't bad, but I wonder how long it would go for.

    Excellent information in your review! This is the only product I've not tried from the Intimate Organics line and I am dying to get the coconut lemongrass! We don't do foot sex, but I would love to use it for other thigns Lol. I have been really happy with all the Intimate Organics product so I'm sure this is no exception. Thanks for all the detail.
