Luxury in a bottle..

The texture is smooth and silky feeling. I love the consistency of this oil. It pours into the palm of my hand perfectly and doesn't splatter everywhere. It does not feel sticky or greasy. If you wipe it off with a damp washcloth, it comes off easily and leaves no trace. This is truly a luxury product. All of the smells are Heavenly and I LOVE them.

Can I give them 10 stars?

LELO's flickering touch massage kit is a gift worth giving. The massage oils in the kit are luxurious and they have 24 karat gold flakes in the oil. Yes, you heard me right; I said 24 karat gold. Just knowing that gold is being rubbed all over my body makes me a happy girl.








Massage oils offer a fun way of setting the mood and giving or receiving a warm oil massage all at once. LELO's flicker touch massage oils add that spice that you are looking for with your significant other. They cater to women and men with the scents provided. They seem to have something to fit everyone in this kit.

The oil is not recommended for internal use, or as a lubricant, and it is not condom compatible. If you have sensitive skin, environmental allergies, or any chemical sensitivities this product is not recommended for use. Do not use on broken skin, cuts or rashes as it may cause inflammation or infection. Please test product out on a small, inconspicuous area of skin before applying fully to the body.

Do not use this product on mucous membranes or internally. Using it internally could cause problems and it would also decrease the effectiveness of any sort of latex barrier such as condoms.


These bottles are a heavier glass and nice looking but like I told my partner, they are not shatterproof. Oily hands can leave a slick feeling on the bottle and cause you to drop it. Yes, I found this out while taking photographs of the bottles. I tried to wipe off all of the oil from my hands but I still had a little on my right palm and when I picked up the bottle, it tried to slide down on me. This happens with glass and oil, just a fact of life. I've lost many glasses and bottles in my lifetime from them slipping out of my hands. Even though I was standing on a carpeted surface with padding underneath tonight, I held onto it for dear life. I wasn't going to let this prize go. After all, to me this is a one of a kind gift that anyone can appreciate. Okay, almost anyone.

These bottles have plastic tops which act as protectors from the push top dispenser and the tops come in green, purple and red. These colored caps act as a protector so the tops do not get pressed accidentally and pour out onto something such as furniture or bedding. They go on easily and they pull off easily. These really help to grab onto when you have super oily hands. These tops make all the difference. They also add a nice touch of color to the black and gold and they act as a nice decoration. The plastic seems well made. I've handled them quite a bit today and I have had no problems. It's very easy to remove and pull right off. The bottle does smudge very easily, especially with well oiled hands rubbing them. After use, I took a warm washcloth and wiped it down. It looked brand new afterwards.





Under the decoration is the pump top dispenser, you just simply press the pump-top and a set amount of oil flows out in a straight line. It does not spray out. Once you pump it out, it puddles in the area that it hits. I took a photo of how it puddled in my palm. It didn't go all over the place, it stayed exactly where I wanted it. Oh, how I like that feature, no pouring and no unwanted mess. I was in bliss the first time that I dispensed the oil. The two squirts that I used worked for my legs just fine and when used for my partner, it covered his back, shoulders, and arms.





The pump-top dispenses enough oil for light use in one squirt but I ended up doing two squirts per use when I wanted to cover my partner’s body in oil, but one squirt works if you are wanting to be more conservative. I tend to overuse the oil to the point where it has to be washed off but not with this one. The pump top does unscrew and it comes completely off, just in case you needed a large amount fairly quickly. Once the oil is gone, you could rinse the bottle out and figure out a new use for it. You could add another massage oil but just make sure that it's not too thick. The hole in the top of the bottle is far too small to clean thoroughly.



The plastic tops are circular in shape and they measure:

7' X 1 1/4"

The bottle is:

4" tall

3" in diameter

9 1/4" in circumference


Each full bottle weighs:



11.5 ounces



These oils are naturally rich in Vitamin E which is super healthy for the skin and I love anything that isn't fake or chemical ridden for my body.

The gold flakes give that subtle sparkle and glow that us ladies and gents are always looking for. It does not look like I put glitter on my skin. The flakes are so small that it gives you a hint of flicker, hence the name Flickering Touch Massage Oil. The oil does seem to leave more of a shimmer on the skin than other oils do, but aside from that, I didn’t notice any dramatic sparkles on my skin from the gold flakes. Just in case you were wondering, I didn't look like Edward from the movie Twilight when the sun hits his skin. Now, if you cake it on your skin, you may be able to achieve that effect and waste some precious oil in the process.





The gold did seem to give a hint of silver at times in rooms with different lighting. My partner even noted that he liked the silver look. Once I had it on my skin for a while, the silver look faded a bit. I started laughing and singing the Christmas song, Silver and Gold. That is what first came to mind when I saw both silver and gold flickers in the light. In the sunlight, the flickers show up great. In low light, you can faintly see them.






I tested it on one hand and left the other with nothing on it. My right hand had the oil and the left hand had nothing. For hours after I applied the oil, the right hand felt smoother, softer and more moisturized.
My partner noticed the difference on my hands without me telling him which had the oil on it. He looked down to my right hand and commented on the glow of my skin.

This oil is something that I won't use as much of, on massages because my guy is tall, and to thoroughly give him a massage with the oil would use quite a bit of it. I would like to hang onto these because they are pricey. Pricey but worth it. As the saying goes, You must pay for quality. These oils are pure quality from the dazzling bottles to the all natural ingredients.


I think LELO did an excellent job with these massage oils. They feel and look luxurious. They don't feel greasy nor do they make you feel like you need to jump in the shower as soon as the massage is over. They are very runny but if you are using for a massage, this is great.

It does glide nicely against the skin when first put onto the skin. Using too little of an amount did seem to make the oil dry up quickly, but as long as you used a moderate to a larger amount as well keeping your hands moving across the skin, it does seem to keep the oil longer. The oil absorbed into my skin and left a moisturized feeling and you couldn't tell that there was any oil on my skin before that. It looked as if I had recently used a very high quality lotion. The oil has a nice slickness to it but it's not a nasty kind of slickness, it's thin and oily. That's perfect for massages and moisturizing. This oil is indeed perfect for both.
    • Slick
    • Smooth

Taste / Aroma

I'm going to go into a little about the scents used for these oils below. I love to give backgrounds to help people imagine how a scent may smell.


I will now go into the breakdown of the scents, in case anyone craved any in depth information.


The first oil that I'm going to discuss is:


BALSAM FIR & BERGAMOT


Ingredients are:


Apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, perfume (d-limonene, linalool, hexylcinnamaldehyde)


A recipe for romance; arouse and awaken to the cool summery embrace of Italian Bergamot with a cedar finish of balsam fir.

Balsam Fir is a small to medium-size evergreen tree typically 14–20 meters (46–66 ft) tall, rarely to 27 meters (89 ft) tall, with a narrow conic crown. The bark on young trees is smooth, grey, and with resin blisters (which tend to spray when ruptured), becoming rough and fissured or scaly on old trees.

Both varieties of the species are very popular as Christmas trees, particularly in the northeastern United states. The resin is used to produce Canada balsam, and was traditionally used as a cold remedy and as a glue for glasses, optical instrument components, and for preparing permanent mounts of microscope specimens. Balsam fir oil is an EPA approved nontoxic rodent repellent. The balsam fir is also used as an air freshener and as incense.


Citrus bergamia, the Bergamot orange, is a fragrant fruit the size of an orange, with a yellow color similar to a lemon. Genetic research into the ancestral origins of extant citrus cultivars matched the bergamot as a likely hybrid of Citrus limetta and Citrus aurantium.
Citrus bergamia is a small tree which blossoms during the winter. The juice tastes less sour than lemon, but more bitter than grapefruit. The distinctive aroma of the bergamot is most commonly known for its use in Earl Grey tea.The juice of the fruit has also been used in Calabrian indigenous medicine to treat malaria, and its essential oil is popular in aromatherapy applications.


Next, there is the:

SPICY CLOVE & AMBER


Ingredients are:

Apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, perfume (Benzyl benzoate, linalool, d-limonene)



Soft and seductive; loosen your inhibitions with the double dare of spicy clove atop a sensual bottom note of amber.


Cloves are the aromatic dried flower buds of a tree in the family Myrtaceae, Syzygium aromaticum. Cloves are native to the Maluku islands in Indonesia and used as a spice in cuisines all over the world. Cloves are harvested primarily in Indonesia, India, Madagascar, Zanzibar, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. They have a numbing effect on mouth tissues.

The clove tree is an evergreen that grows to a height ranging from 8–12 m, having large leaves and sanguine flowers in numerous groups of terminal clusters. The flower buds are at first of a pale color and gradually become green, after which they develop into a bright red, when they are ready for collecting. Cloves are harvested when 1.5–2 cm long, and consist of a long calyx, terminating in four spreading sepals, and four unopened petals which form a small ball in the center.

Eugenol comprises 72-90% of the essential oil extracted from cloves, and is the compound most responsible for the cloves' aroma.

Amber is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Much valued from antiquity to the present as a gemstone, amber is made into a variety of decorative objects. Amber is used as an ingredient in perfumes, as a healing agent in folk medicine, and as jewelry. There are five classes of amber, defined on the basis of their chemical constituents. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions.


Last but not least, we have:

FRESH LILY & MUSK


Ingredients are:


Apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, perfume (Benzyl salicylate, linalool, d-limonene)


Perfectly balancing dark and light; deepen your desire with the fragrant bouquet of fresh lily contrasted against an earthy base of rich musk.


Lilium (members of which are true lilies) is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs (or other enlarged underground stems (Bidlack), all with large prominent flowers. Lilies are an important group of flowering plants and are important in culture and literature in much of the world. The lily family is known as Liliaceae and there are numerous subfamilies (Bidlack). Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere, through their range and extends into northern subtropics. Many other plants have "lily" in their common name but are not related to true lilies.

Lilies are tall perennials ranging in height from 2–6 ft.
The flowers are large, often fragrant, and come in a range of colors including whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and purples. Markings include spots and brush strokes. The plants are late spring- or summer-flowering. Flowers are borne in racemes or umbels at the tip of the stem, with six tepals spreading or reflexed, to give flowers varying from funnel shape to a "Turk's cap". The tepals are free from each other, and bear a nectary at the base of each flower. The ovary is 'superior', borne above the point of attachment of the anthers. The fruit is a three-celled capsule.
Musk is a class of aromatic substances commonly used as base notes in perfumery. They include glandular secretions from animals such as the musk deer, numerous plants emitting similar fragrances, and artificial substances with similar odors. Musk was a name originally given to a substance with a penetrating odor obtained from a gland of the male musk deer. The substance has been used as a popular perfume fixative since ancient times and is one of the most expensive animal products in the world. The name, originated from Sanskrit mu?ká meaning "testicle," has come to encompass a wide variety of substances with somewhat similar odors although many of them are quite different in their chemical structures.

Until the late 19th century, natural musk was used extensively in perfumery until economic and ethical motives led to the adoption of synthetic musk, which is now used almost exclusively. The organic compound primarily responsible for the characteristic odor of musk is muscone.

Some plants such as Angelica archangelica or Abelmoschus moschatus produce musky smelling macrocyclic lactone compounds. These compounds are widely used in perfumery as substitutes for animal musk or to alter the smell of a mixture of other musks.

The plant sources include musk flower (Mimulus moschatus), the muskwood (Olearia argophylla) of the Guianas and West Indies, and the seeds of Abelmoschus moschatus (musk seeds).
    • Light smell
    • Smells good

Performance

I didn't taste the massage oils as they contain gold flakes, with iron and titanium and they aren't made to be ingested by anyone. Sorry guys, I know that I usually try to go above and beyond for you all in my reviews but I had to pass on the taste testing for these products.






The LELO Massage oil is one of LELO's newest sensual products, and the massage oils come in a black, glass bottle with a pump-top dispenser, and it comes in three different scents: Spicy Clove & Amber, Balsam Fir & Bergamot, and Fresh Lily and Musk.



The bottles are 4 fl. ounce bottles which provide quite a bit of oil for massaging use. The massage oil contains specks of gold flakes that will make your massaging experience more pleasurable. It was made to be a massage oil and not a flavored lubricant. This is oil, so it’s also meant to be external use only.

The oil exceeded my expectations. Everything about the oils were perfect. It was long lasting and I didn't have to wash anything off. It absorbed into the skin nicely. It will clean up with soap and water easily. I really loved the smell and the consistency of the oils the best. The pretty black bottle was nice as well!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural

Packaging

The Massage Oil comes packaged in a pretty attractive matte and gloss black box with simple LELO gold lettering on it. Inside that box, the bottles are individually boxed into three separate boxes. All of these boxes have plastic on them for protection in case of leaks. They look beautiful and expensive. The boxes are made from cardboard. There’s no reason to keep the main box after you take the bottles out. Each individual box is lined with a cardboard insert inside to keep the bottle from breaking or moving during shipment. There's a molded piece of cardboard at the bottom to hold it in place. The main outer box has a gold emblem on the lower right corner, it looks to be a silhouette of the top of the bottle in gold. It reads LELO- Luxurious Massage Oils with 24-Karat Gold Flakes. If you wanted to separate these for gifts, it would be easy to do as they are individually packaged. If you are like me, I would be keeping these all to myself.









Instructions on the side of the main box is as follows:

How to use

Shake well before using. Remove protective cap to release a small amount of flickering touch oil into your palms. Warm the oil by rubbing the hands together before applying with gentle massage strokes. Store in a cool dry place.

Warning: Do not swallow. Avoid contact with eyes. If any discomfort or irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult your health care provider.

Not for use as a personal lubricant

Keep out of reach of children and pets.

The oils was manufactured by LELO, in China.


Each individual box has instructions in many different languages and ingredients.


The boxes hold up pretty well and seem to protect the bottles like it should. My bottles arrived in tip top condition. Believe me, I would have thrown a fit if one of these arrived broken or leaking. The box doesn’t come with any instructions inside, they're only on the boxes.

The box states that this set is a limited edition gift set and that the oil offers indulgence night upon night.

The bottles are a heavy, black glass. They do have some heft to them. If I ever have a burglar and I'm in my bedroom, I'm grabbing one of these suckers and whacking him with it. It's heavier than any of my other perfumes bottles and I have a lot. I wouldn't say that these will break easily in the home if kept on a dresser or stand. I'm thinking that the only way that these will break is if you dropped them on a very hard surface like concrete. I'm not willing to go the extra mile to find out, guys. Again, I'm sorry. I have three new lovely oils and I can't try to damage them in any shape or form.

The packaging and the sexy black bottle that the massage oil comes in is very stylish and decadent. I have it on my dresser with my other perfume bottles and it seems to be perfectly discreet. The weighty bottle itself has minimal writing almost embossed into the glass and there are no stickers anywhere in sight. The lid is made from colored perspex, an acrylic type material. Each lid is color coded for each fragrance. There are red, green and purple.

Here are the coordinating color tops and scents:

Red- Spicy Clove & Amber

Purple- Fresh Lily & Musk

Green- Balsam Fir & Bergamot
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Would make a nice gift

Special Features

Some key features are:

-All natural ingredients with no chemical additives

-Vitamin E to soften and nourish skin

-Non-greasy and long-lasting oil absorbs into skin

-Ideal for use whenever the moment arises

-24K Gold Flakes add an indulgent touch

-Lends the body an eye-catching shimmer


It really is the best massage oil I've ever used on myself and a partner and it is amazingly perfect. It doesn't drag on the skin and there's no need to wash it off after use because it doesn't get icky.

The bottle is classy and posh and has earned a place with my most expensive perfumes on my dresser.



Personal comments

I was thinking about how I could vary up the play and warm up the oil. I wanted to try to warm the glass up and see if it made the massage even more desirable, since glass is a great heat conductor. I haven't come to a conclusion yet if I should or if it would weaken some of the ingredients. I may try it with the Balsam Fir and Bergamot oil since it is the scent that was least liked by me.

My partner seemed to like that scent the best. To me, it is woodsy and lemony. A more masculine scent, in my opinion. He really loved the woodsy smell.

I liked the Spicy Clove and Amber just as much as the Fresh Lily and Musk.

They were both totally different scents that gave an appeal on their own. The Fresh Lily was light and airy and the musk was dark and seductive. The Spicy Clove and Amber was deep and rich with a hint of spice. I could not determine which I liked more because they are so different. I'm probably going to use the Fresh Lily and Musk for day use and keep the Spicy Clove and Amber for massage use. None of these scents are fruity. They are earthy and smell natural. There is no chemical smell with these. The scents are light, but long lasting. They don't overpower give headaches. I love a product that has minimal ingredients because you have a better chance of knowing what is going onto your body.

LELO seemed to spare no expense with these oils and I really like that in a product. If they are willing to go the extra mile, that keeps me buying their products. LELO is known for their discreet packaging and nicely packaged products.

Experience

This Flickering massage oil set is a one of a kind gift that most people will love. LELO usually sells these for 39.90 per bottle on their website and here you get all three bottles for a much lower price. You are getting the same quality but at a more affordable price. At that price, you are paying for a quality product. The price may be a bit steep for some but when I want quality, I will pay for it.

I felt like my Christmas arrived early when I opened up this set. I'm really into gift sets and I adore getting them as gifts. These massage oils are sure to wow. You can buy a gorgeous gift bag and pop the box right down in the bag or get some gold wrapping paper to match the box.

With Christmas around the corner, This would be a nice set to put some spice into the bedroom. I'm so glad that I received this. I've never used a more luxurious massage oil and that is the absolute truth.

I especially love the natural ingredients used in these oils.
Follow-up commentary
I am in love with this set. It's luxury for the skin and I really love all of these! These luxury oils make my skin feel like a million bucks!
