Nice Idea

I'm just going to junk this. Not that its a bad lube but it really brought out my crazy OCD-like traits. It is more of a nuisance, has a great smell at first but gets annoying when you smell it all over your sheets! I don't like cherry THAT much. It was too thin of a consistency and a disappointment

It was a nice idea I suppose. I mean that I love flavoured lubes because I'm just not keen on the natural flavour of sex (not that there is anything wrong with it, I've just always been a picky eater). Now that seems to have followed me here, too.

I won't say too much about the packaging. I mean it's a bottle and it's kind of cute with the little design in the corner. Now onto the actual product inside that bottle!

So I found that first off upon popping the top open that the aroma was nice. The flavour is cherry and vanilla, which I LOVE vanilla... cherry depends, though, on how well it is done. Unfortunately for me it wasn't done all that well. My first step was to taste it. I couldn't wait to apply and try it. I put some on my finger only to be a little let down. It was too artificial. You know like when you get a milk shake and they add fake vanilla into it? Yeah, kind of like that. I'll ask for my milk shakes without added vanilla, since the ice cream is usually already vanilla. Now take that idea and apply it to the cherry flavour... and possibly the vanilla. The chemical taste was disappointing but that doesn't stop me from eating those milk shakes so it won't stop me from moving forward with this. There was a bit too much of a sugar taste to it, but I digress.

The lube itself maintained that soft and smooth feeling that I experience with a lot of lubes, which means that I am no longer as disappointed. The product did work in that regard; however, just using it is more of a hassle than other products. Some people may like the idea of a thinner lube with the idea that it will spread more evenly or something. UGH, not me. It was thin, too thin for me. I think thin lubes are messy lubes. They spill on the sheets, the floor, the night stand, and the bottle itself! Nothing worse than getting it on, grabbing the bottle for something to change it up, only to get it on your hands... and for me that's very distracting. I worry about getting it on the sheets, on the pillows, on my partner and have him distracted about feeling that on his chest! Usually I try and wipe it off, on a towel if I grabbed one earlier... or on the sheets. Problem being that it leaves that cherry scent. OH MAN, it gets to be too much when you fall asleep to that cherry scent on your pillow *sad face*.

I don't care for it. I wish I could say otherwise because a lot of people really like it. Fact is, I feel more than not caring for it... I kind of hate this thing now. Just thinking about having to grab it to toss it means I'll smell like over-chemically-sugary cherry for too long! It's just too thin and I found that not only was that messy but I found it harder to apply. It doesn't stay on your fingers nearly as easily as other lubes that are thicker. I like to use my fingers to spread it out on my partner's penis, and make that part of some sexy foreplay. Especially when it's flavoured because sometimes I like to spread it with my tongue *wink*... but you just can't do that with this product... if the taste didn't get me the consistency sure did.
Experience
I find that thin lubes like this are messy and distracting. Try to keep something like a towel around, even if you don't find the urge to use it like I did, if you do it will save your sheets from the smell if you decide to wipe your hand!

    You aren't alone. It was either this flavor or green apple when we got ours, I must say I'm not a fan of this flavor The 3 I would like are still out of stock!
