Hot And Sexy? More like Hot and a BUST.

Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to like these, I just don't. They taste awful and they get sticky quickly. Needing to scrub this off with soap and water is NOT a benefit in my book, and the heat only seems to work if you blow on the lube directly as opposed to rubbing it like it says on the box. It does smell nice, though.

Use

These are marketed as warming lubes, but I'm not really a fan of them for that purpose. They get sticky and require re-applying often, and they do not really warm up at all, unless you blow on them. More on that in a bit.

Since these aren't really very pleasant as lubricants, we found the best way to use them was as a massage oil. On the packaging, it says that these lubes will heat up when you blow on them, or rub them. We find that they only really heat up if you blow on them FIRST, and then as you rub them the heat seems to stay activated. Using this as a massage oil on (for example) your back feels great - at first. You're going to have to commit to taking a shower immediately afterward though, because as I mentioned, this lube does not absorb into skin and it gets really sticky as it starts to dry.

While the heat feature is very cool, it isn't cool enough that either I or my husband really wants to be covered in this sticky goop, either as a lubricant or for a massage.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The lid is a flip-top, and when you open the lid there is just a BIG hole there, so be careful and don't squeeze the bottle too hard or you'll have a sticky mess in no time. (I learned this the hard way!) The lubes themselves feel very slick at first and will NOT rub into skin no matter what you do. This lubricant just seems to sit on top of skin until you are ready to wash it off. Not only that, but you need to be really careful with how much you're applying. Too much will get really sticky, but even if you put the right amount on the lube gets sticky as it dries.

Taste / Aroma

These all smell like what they are meant to smell like. The pack comes with five different flavors: vanilla, cherry, cinnamon, strawberry, and watermelon. Since they all smelled so good, and since they are meant as *flavored* lubricants, I thought they would taste great. Unfortunately, they all have a very bitter and just disgusting flavor. I really don't recommend these if you are looking to add a different flavor in your oral sex play time. The scent is nice for a bit of extra ambiance, though.

Performance

I'm really not very happy with the way these performed and probably won't be bringing them out to use very often. They are messy, feel sticky as they dry, and just taste terrible. Honestly, these lubes are a one trick pony - they warm up when you blow on them. The sensation feels cool but not for very long, and then you've got to scrub to get it off.

Many of the ingredients are natural, but here is a list of them all for you:

Glycerin, Flavor (aroma), Mango fruit extract, Papaya fruit extract, Pineapple fruit extract, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol denatured, Citric acid, Water, yellow 5.
    • Allergy concerns
    • Gets sticky
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water

Packaging

The lubes are packaged neatly enough in a clear see-through box which is the same width of the lubricants themselves. All five lubricants fit in there with no problems, and the box is even resealable. To keep the mess down to a minimum I store my lubes right in there. The caps of the lubes do leak a little bit so the plastic box is definitely useful.
    • Minimal

Special Features

The thing which interested me most about these lubes was that they heat up when blown on. This is a really cool feature, but I feel that the execution of the product makes this feature not really worth it. Honestly, this product was so unpleasant to use that the fact that it heats up when you blow on it really can't be enjoyed. If the lubes weren't so sticky and messy then this would probably be my new favorite thing.

Since the box says on it that you can activate the heat just by rubbing the lube itself, I tried putting this on a toy and them using the toy on myself but I never felt the heat at all. For me? This feature was a bust.

Follow-up commentary
These are just so sticky and not-fun. We've tried them a few more times, but they're just not a great flavored lube.

    @Supernaturalgirl If you have sensitive skin, looking at something else may be your best bet. :/
