You + Oil = Super Soft Cupcake Kitten

The Shunga Erotic Art massage oil is definitely a good choice. It is deliciously scented and works great to add moisture and shine to skin. It is made of natural oils and takes a while to absorb, which means less is needed for a massage. The only thing that would really make it any better is if it tasted even half as good as it smells!

The Shunga Erotic Art massage oil is an absolutely wonderful product. I ordered the Desire scent, which is a warm vanilla. I already have a couple of massage oils, so I was a bit unsure if I REALLY needed another one. Now I am wishing I could have gone back in time and only gotten this one.

The massage oil is packaged in a plastic bottle with a label on the front. The back has some information printed directly on the bottle, which I noticed can be scratched off easily. The bottle contains 8 ounces, or 250 milliliters, of oil and features a top that you press to open, which many lotions also use. I don’t feel the top is very stable. I have flipped the bottle over and have shaken it and none of the oil has come out, but I just don’t feel like I can fully trust it to not leak. When I open the bottle, a bit usually dribbles down the side of the bottle, which I just wipe onto my hand or wipe it off with a napkin.

I’d say this bottle is somewhat discreet. It is a nice looking bottle. Keeping the front label, which features a picture of a half-naked woman, turned back would definitely make this discreet. Regardless of that, I plan on leaving it sitting on my dresser next to all of my lotions and body dusts.

Shunga’s massage oil is made out of all natural oils. I definitely like seeing that, rather than a bunch of weird words that I can’t pronounce.

Ingredients:

Sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, sesame oil, avocado oil, safflower oil, vitamin E, ylang ylang, and fragrance.

The texture is nice and smooth. Since it is just oil, it is a bit runny, though it rubs in nicely. It does feel a bit greasy if you get too much in one area, though. A little definitely goes a long way. Since the bottle drips some oil when it is opened, you may end up with more than you wanted to use. Still, I can see this lasting a very long time. I have used mine about 5-6 times already and the level of the oil is just a tiny bit below the cap.

I love the scent. It is a warm, deep vanilla scent. It doesn’t smell like cheap imitation vanilla at all. The flavor is a very light vanilla flavor, barely there. When I have licked some to see what it tastes like, I think I am mostly getting a taste of just having oil in my mouth.

As a massage oil, this works great. It absorbs slowly into the skin, which is great since you don’t have to keep applying it. I do kind of feel like I need to wash my hands after getting a good amount on them, but it isn’t a totally nasty greasy feeling like grease from food is. It also leaves a nice sheen to my skin. I would love to rub this all over my body before going out, but since going out lately has just meant going to work or going to work out, it’s probably a terrible idea. Our anniversary date is coming up, so I’ll probably do that after showering.

I have no problems washing this off. Just scrubbing with some warm water and soap gets the oil off easily. Though, really, I don’t want to wash it off. It smells so good, like cupcakes.

I feel the Shunga Erotic Art massage oil would make a great bridal gift. It doesn’t scream that it is intended for sex or anything. It looks more like something aimed for relaxing.
Experience
I have wanted to try oil in a bath for a while. We have a bath tub/shower combo, which features a very small tub that is uncomfortable to lie in. So instead, I decided to give this a try on my bath poof while showering. I first tried it in the shower with my boyfriend, on one of those rare occasions that we can get in there and get a shower together without anyone noticing. We used this soy body wash I had, since it was unscented and I wanted to see how much scent would remain after a shower. I just squirted my normal amount of body wash onto the poof and added just a small amount of oil, maybe 1/4 of a teaspoon at most. I wasn’t expecting it to leave much on my skin, since body wash does take away oils, but it did. My skin has been super soft both times I have done this; much softer than it is when I just use my body washes. It is also very pleasantly vanilla scented, though you have to get pretty close to smell it.

Even on my boyfriend, this stuff worked great as a moisturizer. He has very dry rough skin all over his body, and after bathing with this and having some rubbed on him, he felt as soft as a kitten.
Follow-up commentary
I have used this massage oil a lot more in my shower in combination with my body wash than I actually have used it for massages. I love the feeling it leaves on my skin, so soft and silky. I used it in the tub once, when I got a chance to take a bath, though I felt pouring some on my shower poof was more effective. I haven't had any issues with leaks or a breakdown of the oil at all. I'm definitely interested in trying the other scents available!

    I have the vanilla, strawberries and cream, and fruit. S&C is the strongest by far! Try that one next time maybe?
