Jo "Light" may be too light for most

I really wanted to love this stuff, I really did! Unfortunately I just didn't get much out of it. It may work well for someone more sensitive, but the effects were too mild for me to care about using it again. For the price, I don't think it's worth it, but if you're sensitive and love warm/cool tingly sensations, this may be a great product for you!

Use

The JO Clitoris Stimulation Gel is a thick liquid made to be rubbed directly onto the clitoris before sex, it's meant to bring heightened sensation and pleasure for those who are less than sensitive. Hormone free and balanced for your body's natural levels, it is non-harmful, non-toxic, and in my experience, non-irritating to the sensitive skin of the clitoris and hood. The gel, while lubricant like in consistency, isn't meant to be used as an internal play lubricant. Since it's silicone based, it may interfere with a silicone toy, so be mindful of what you play with after applying it!

While this gel is intended for use on the clitoris, it can also be used on the male equivalent, the glans of the penis! If you enjoy nipple play, this may work well on sensitive nipples too. For solo play or hand jobs this can really add some nice sensations, but I wouldn't recommend oral play afterwards unless you wipe the gel off with a tissue or body wipe. Since this is silicone and oil, (in fact there's no water at all! I'm not sure why it says "water based" on the product page) it will stay put in the shower, assuming you don't have the shower head pointed directly at your genitals.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The consistency is slick, thick but not hair gel thick, a little greasy, and it stays wet for a long time, as most silicone based liquids do. It isn't watery and it stays in place if you apply the recommended amount, I wouldn't worry about it running after it has been rubbed in. After you wipe it off, there is a slight residue which can be removed with soap and light scrubbing. The slight residue is very slightly sticky, which is a bit of a turn-off but it's nothing too annoying. I've tried flavored glycerin based lubes that are stickier, but still, the slight stickiness isn't my favorite feeling. Silicone can't absorb into the skin because of the size of the molecules, it stays on the skin for a long time which makes it quite nice for stimulating yourself, if only it didn't interfere with silicone toys!

There is no color to the gel, it's completely clear, even in the bottle. Since there's no added coloring chemicals, don't fret if it gets on your underwear, sheets or other fabrics, a quick wash and it's gone. Unlike some clear liquids that don't stain, it doesn't leave oily spots or a crusty mess, this stuff vanishes after a wash! It's also glycerin and paraben free!
    • Greasy
    • Slick

Taste / Aroma

While this gel isn't intended for ingestion, I tasted a little for this review! The taste is very very light, and the only thing you can really pick up on is the peppermint oil. There's no aftertaste or chemically feel in the mouth, if you gave oral after it was applied and wiped off your partner, you probably wouldn't notice! It's nearly flavorless, and that's fine since it's not meant to be eaten.

The aroma is just as light as the taste, the only thing I can pick up on is the little bit of peppermint oil, I can't sense anything else. The peppermint, of course, reminds me of mints and candycanes, but it's so subtle that the natural smells of one's body would easily overpower the gel's scent.
    • Light smell
    • Light taste

Performance

My personal experience

Immediately after applying: Feels wet, not much else.
1 minute after applying: Slight warm tingling sensation
5 minutes after applying: Hot/cold sensation, it's light but noticeable.
15 minutes after applying: Same light hot/cold sensation, nothing new.

When they say "light", they really mean light. Personally, I was super excited about this product because I've got quite the steel clit, I'm up for anything that will help me gain sensitivity. I received this in the mail and immediately went to apply it, hoping I'd get some nice sensations out of it! I was expecting my clit to feel tingly and hot, maybe throb a bit, and be able to orgasm easier. Unfortunately all I got out of it was a very mild hot/cold tingly sensation and not a lot else. If anything, the movement of my fingers while applying it caused me to get more aroused than the gel's effects did. I wasn't able to orgasm easier than normal, and the effects faded completely after 20 minutes even though the box claims the effects can last up to 45, I doubt that. This may work nicely for someone who is more sensitive than me, but personally I wasn't impressed. I really did want to love this product, but I just can't give it a very high rating since I hardly got anything out of it. No noticeable increased blood flow, no throbbing, just a light tingly sensation that wasn't particularly arousing or strong enough to do much for me.
    • Long lasting
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water
    • Not compatible with all materials

Packaging

The package it comes in is a little squeeze bottle with a pointy applicator tip that lets you easily squeeze out the right sized drop. Residue doesn't build up on the tip so there's no worries about it becoming clogged. The little 10cc bottle comes in a pale pink gradient flimsy paper box with the product title and description on it. The box and the bottle are in no way discreet, both say CLITORAL GEL right across them in big bold letters! The box can be kept to store the bottle in, but I personally didn't find it necessary, we keep the bottle in our lube/cockring box. Because the applicator tip is small and the cap fits on securely, I wouldn't be concerned about it leaking after opening, and it's small enough for safe traveling. However, it is a squeeze-type bottle, so putting heavy things on top of it may cause it to leak, even if it's in the box.
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Not discreet

Special Features

While this product is suppose to be cooling, warming, tingly and increase sensitivity, I only experienced very mild sensations and didn't notice any increased sensitivity. For someone who is more sensitive it may be much more effective, I might just need a stronger version.

Ingredients:
Polydimethylsiloxane: A type of silicone
Decamethylcuclopentasiloxane: more silicone
Octamethylcuclotetrosiloxane: more silicone!
Dimethylsiloxane: MORE silicone!
Hydroxy-terminated Menthol: Peppermint oil, meant to increase blood flow along with provide tingly warm/cool sensations. This can be a skin irritant in high concentrations and can irritate very sensitive skin.
    • Cooling
    • Increases sensitivity
    • Tingling

Experience

I really did want to love this product, but I just don't. I guess I'm just not sensitive enough for the light Jo Clitoral Gel, however I have hopes for others who are more sensitive than myself. I'll try some of the stronger versions, I enjoyed the little sensation I got out of this product and would really like to feel more of it! I aslo plan on trying it on my male partner to see if he gets more out of it than me, and I'll write an update if it goes well.
