Good Clean (Pricey) FunIf this package had 20 wipes instead of ten (for the same or just slightly more cost) I would be able to recommend it with a huge happy smile. Because it's a great product, and very high quality. It's just too expensive for this busy sexual beaver to use on a regular basis.
Which brings me (sort of) to these wipes.
First impression: They smell really nice, without being overly cloying, perfumey or in any way icky. And they're soft. Like, really really soft. Like a baby blanket soft. I have no idea what trickery of technology and magic makes them feel like this, but I want some for my own.
Scent and Sensitivity (the non-Jane Eyre version): I had no trouble at all using this wipes on any part of my body, which is a rarity. And a bit of a delight. The scent lingers a little, but it's certainly not in a bad way. Beware, though: many people have a sensitivity to tea tree oil which is a main ingredient in these wipes, so be sure to try them somewhere 'safe' (back of knee, inside of arm) before you go putting them between your legs.
Uses: As mentioned, these are great for the body. They're also great for toys. I like the fact that I can keep them in the bedroom and use them to clean off toys before and after play without having to get up and go find a sink.
Cost: This, for me, is the only downside of these wipes. Granted, they're fluffy and soft and smell nice and make me all happy and clean, and there certainly should NOT be a price cap on that. However, for most of us, price is important. And for only 10 wipes, eight dollars seems a little on the pricey side. Or maybe it's just that I have a lot of sex, but I started thinking in my head: Okay, if I used just one of those every time I used a toy or had sex, they wouldn't last half a week. Which would add up, and fast. So, for me, they'd be a great thing to have around as backups, for the occasional, "Damn that sex was so good I can't get up and wash the toys right now" moment.
One More Thing: My only other complaint is that the date stamped on the package was long out-of-date. While this doesn't seem like a huge deal -- I don't know the half-life on fuzzy cloths loaded with tea tree oil but I'm guessing they can live on and work for a long time after their "use by" date -- it is something to consider (especially considering the cost). If I'd bought them, I would have definitely sent them back. UPDATE: The stamped-on date is apparently NOT the use-by date, but the born-on date. I wish that was clearer, but now you know!
