Hot and bothered!It seems to me that men like this product more than women. I've used it solo and with a mix of male and female partners and the males seemed to like it while the females weren't into the warming sensation. It couldn't hurt to try a smaller size and if you like it, go back and buy more!
Water-base, obvious warming sensation, affordable, easy to wash off.
Can get sticky, a bit too warm for some, congeals in the bottle.
This is a fairly simple water-based lubricant which has a few added ingredients to give the formula a little heat. It's easy to clean up, compatible with your sex toys and generally safe. It's a good idea to try a small tube before investing in a larger one to make sure the warming sensation is your thing. It's hit or miss depending on personal preference. It is a decent lube, but some may find the sensation not so sensational or they may find it a bit too warm for their liking. It does seem that with toy play, I don't feel the warming sensation as much. This COULD be irritating to some sensitive skin, so be sure to keep an eye on how your skin looks and feels when using this product. If it irritates, just don't even try. I would think anyone could give one of the smaller tubes a go and if it's not their thing, they haven't invested in some giant bottle of lube that's just going to congeal (and this product will) inside the bottle.
The texture is pretty smooth with adequate slip. It's a bit on the thin side and hard to control, but do keep in mind that this is a cheaper water-based lube. It's definitely easy to pour... AT FIRST. This congealed in the bottle pretty bad and I felt like I was always having to clean the cap out before I could use it. I've never had such a problem with this when it came to other lubricants. I thought maybe there was some sort of a problem with the way the cap screwed on or shut. Or perhaps it was a faulty cap that wouldn't close all of the way? I can't say for sure, but it was annoying. It goes on the skin quite well and doesn't get too sticky, but seems to dry out pretty fast. A little will do until it dries, then you need to reapply. For something that gets so clumpy in the bottle, I was shocked at how it didn't get super thick on the skin.
This smells kinda like a hot jawbreaker or cinnamon candy. It's not strong at all. The taste is also similar, but I did not like how it FELT in my mouth. It didn't BURN, but it just tasted kinda gross to me. It also gave me a headache when I ended up getting it in my mouth. I've now learned my lesson the hard way. I don't usually require flavored lube for oral activities and if I'm using water-based lube for something else, it's not a real bother to go from that to using my mouth. When I carelessly did the switch while using this product, I found out after about 4-5 minutes that it wasn't going to work that way again. Fast forward about 10 minutes after the product made contact with my mouth and I had a moderately bad headache that was spoiling the mood and fast! It may not act like this with anyone else, but if it's possible with me, it could be possible with anybody.
Being a cheaper water-based product, this one does get a bit sticky and dries out. Not terribly so, but enough that I'm certain one application won't do the trick. It's easy to wash off and doesn't harm any fabrics that I've gotten it on, which is always a good thing. I felt the warming sensation was effective, but just not my cup of tea. The guy I used it with LOOOVED it. It seems it's more of a guy thing than a chick thing, so I know a little more of what to expect and what kind of experimentation to do. I'm not knocking the product at all, it just doesn't work for me personally. I also think that it should be used with caution by those with extremely sensitive skin and allergies. I didn't have any major skin problems myself and my skin is pretty sensitive. The gentleman I used this with has sensitive skin as well, and seemed to have no problem with the product causing any issues. It could be an internal thing, maybe it's just a surface thing. Either way, start with a small amount at first and work your way up. This is smart with any lubricant.
The packaging is pretty simplistic. This lubricant comes in the typical plastic bottle. I'm not fond of ID bottles anyway, because the "tilt" on the bottle isn't all that great. I usually end up getting more lube on the bottle than where I really want it. It's okay for travel if you get a smaller size and it does have the convenient press top that you can use with one hand. The bigger sizes are usually better for me because they pour easier. This was partially my fault, for getting the bottle I was displeased with because I didn't want to spring for a bigger size. Just expect the smaller bottles to be a bit more messy. On the upside, their caps aren't as easily broken.
Of course, the special feature is the warming sensation this product provides. I personally thought the warming sensation was quite noticeable and worked well. I'm not the biggest fan of warming lubes, but it certainly worked. I didn't feel it was "too warm", but it was a bit uncomfortable. Someone I used it with claimed it was almost a "burning" sensation, even after she washed it off. I'm guessing it differs from body to body.
Follow-up commentary 12 months after original review
This lube really isn't my cup of tea. It's okay, but it's really hit or miss. I don't have major problems with it, but I just don't think I'll be buying it again in the future. I can't really say anything great or horrible about it.
