Not Peachy Keen

The Peaches N' Cream Body Butter by Doc Johnson is creamy but not peachy. The smell and taste are light, but it can best be described as "blah." It isn't bad as a body lotion, but it also isn't anything to get excited about.

Pros:

Taste and scent are both pretty blah, Doesn't stand out as sexy or sensual

Use

When I saw that this product was in the top 10 selling Body Butters/puddings but had only one other review so far and that the reviewer hated it, I had to give in to curiosity to find out if it was really that bad. Would a different flavor maybe be better?

The Body Butter comes in six different flavors; I selected the peach. The jar holds 4 ounces, and it is a little bit larger than a can of cat food. I know that's a pretty terrible comparison, but I really can't think of anything else of a similar size and shape!

The packaging claims "Hundreds of uses limited only by your imagination." I actually wish that they had elaborated on the “hundreds of uses” a bit more. There are no instructions on the packaging which is a bit of a let down. It would be nice if they offered a few suggestions for use or at least a warning about anything it would be unsafe to use it for. For example, this product contains glycerin, so you probably want to avoid getting it near your vagina if you're sensitive or allergic.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture is similar to actual butter. It is solid in the jar, but it very soft and easy to transfer to your fingers. The texture and large jar opening make it easy to control how much of the Body Butter you get on your fingers. It goes on smoothly and does not feel greasy at all. I would not call it sticky, but after using quite a bit of it, my hands did start to feel a little bit tacky, and I couldn’t wait to wash them.

Taste / Aroma

If I were to smell this without knowing what the scent was supposed to be, I wouldn’t guess it was peach. I’m not sure I would even guess “fruity”. The scent is sweet and a little bit musty. It's almost as if I’d had the jar around for quite a while. This isn’t something I would use before going out to smell nice, but it isn’t a terrible smell either. The smell does get a little bit stronger if you use a lot of the product, but it is still subtle enough that the scent isn't noticeable unless someone is within a few inches of you.

I'm really sensitive to strongly-scented products, so I was curious to see how much of this I could use without sneezing since the scent is faint. I rubbed an ample amount onto both legs which made them quite soft and provided enough scent to be noticeable. My nose got a little itchy after a few minutes, but I never sneezed or got congested, and the scent faded to being barely noticeable after about 20 minutes. Everyone's allergies are going to react differently, of course, so this was just my experience.

The taste is not this item’s strong point which is a shame since taste is a big reason why you buy a flavored body product. If you rub it into your skin and lick, you only get a very mild, vaguely sweet taste. I would compare it to licking a plastic wrapper that once held a fruity candy. If you actually put a blob of the product in your mouth, it is disgusting. This is definitely a product that falls more into the category of “won’t make you sick if you lick after applying” than “tastes yummy and begs to be licked off in large quantities”.

Performance

After rubbing the body butter in, it absorbed into my skin quickly> If you are using it for massage, you are only going to get about a minute’s worth of slipperyness before it dries. My skin was noticeably softer after using the body butter, but it only did an average job of moisturizing. If you are using this body butter as a mositurizer or to massage a large area (like a back massage), you are going to go through quite a bit. I discovered it took a blob about the size of a grape to do my entire leg.

The ingredient list is quite long, and it is a little disappointing that none of them are listed on the product info page so that people with allergies can check for safety. I'm not going to list all 37 ingredients, but a few of them include Safflower oil, shea butter, beeswax, glycerin, ethanol, betaine, serine and glutamic acid. If you are curious about if this contains another specific ingredient, please feel free to ask.

The Body Butter is a pale peach color that becomes clear as you rub it in, so it is not likely to stain your sheets. I tried rubbing some on a white piece of paper, and it mostly disappeared while leaving just a hint of oily residue behind.

After applying the Body Butter, I rinsed my hands off with warm water, but I could still smell the "scent" lingering, so you are going to need both soap and water if you want to wash this off.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Allergy concerns

Packaging

The Body Butter comes in a plastic jar wrapped in plastic for safety and encased in a cardboard display package. My jar looks nothing like the one pictured on the product page. That photo depicts a silver metal lid while my lid is clear plastic with an orange label.

This does get points for being discreet. The box features a picture of a woman biting a peach slice above the words “Body Butter”, and the product description on the back mentions “Hundreds of uses limited only by your imagination.”, but nothing about it really screams sex. The jar itself is clear with an orange label on top that says “Doc Johnson” in small letters with “Body Butter” and “Peaches N’ Cream” in a larger typeface, and the ingredients listed in tiny print around the edge. It doesn’t look sexual in nature at all. It looks just like any other body product.

The jar's lid does have ridges around the rim which makes it easy to open even if your hands are a bit slippery. You are going to need both hands though.

The package mentions that warranty information is available on the Doc Johnson website, so I checked it out wondering why you would possibly need a warranty for Body Butter. Apparently, the company offers a 30-day warranty for all of their products, but you have to pay a $15 warranty fee. I think I will pass on the $15 warranty for my $8 Body Butter - thanks.

The jar’s lid screws on quite securely, so you probably won’t have any trouble traveling with this. Due to it being 4oz, however, you probably aren’t going to be able to fly with it in your carry-on bag.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense

Experience

According to the Doc Johnson website, this product is phthalate-free.

The ingredients are printed on both the box and the jar’s lid which is nice so that you don’t have to keep the box around. I found it interesting that this Peach-flavored Butter contained mango extract, pineapple extract, and papaya extract, but it has no peach. Maybe that’s why the scent isn’t peachy? The ingredients list that it contains “Natural & Artificial Flavor”, so I can’t help but wonder why you wouldn’t just make it taste good if you are going to the trouble of adding artificial flavors anyway.

The product’s expiration date (8/26/2012 in my case) is printed on the bottom of the jar which is a nice touch.

Although this is listed under "sensual love" products, I didn't find it to be all that sexy or sensual. When I think of sensual love products, I think of something that is either going to get me in the mood, make me feel sexier, or add to a seductive mood. Yes, using this with your partner can be fun, but the taste and scent are too bland to be exciting or arousing. They fall into that strange zone between unpleasant and pleasant. If this had a more pleasant peach taste and could be licked off of a partner like whipped cream, it would be much more appealing. If it kept its slippery factor longer for massage, the sexy quotient would be higher. If it had a more pleasant, noticeable scent, it would be great to use before meeting up with your partner to give you an extra boost of sexy confidence. If it was made from ingredients that I was comfortable using on/in/around the genitals, it would be way more fun. Sadly, it is none of these things, but it is best described as a body lotion that won't make you gag if you lick it which isn't enough for me to get excited about.
Follow-up commentary
Even though I wasn't a fan, I kept this around so I could review how it held up over time. Two months later, I just opened it back up to see how it looked, and it still looks, smells, feels and tastes exactly the same. The weather has been a little warmer here lately, and I did notice that it seemed a little bit melty, so if you live somewhere warm, I'd suggest keeping this in the fridge or somewhere nice and cool like a closet. Overall, I'm still not a fan, but at least I can say that it didn't get any worse over time!
