LifeStyles Skyn - condoms by Ansell - review by Moonshyne7785

Nice but nothing omg amazing

Do they do the job? Yes, they do. Do they feel decent? Yes, they don't make intercourse uncomfortable from my experience but they are not anything amazingly special either. They are just good quality condoms but for the price, I wouldn't blame someone for looking for something in bulk that is more affordable and still comfortable for them.
They don't seem to be uncomfortable for my partner and aren't too bad for me, lubricated
they are nice but not as super thin and realistic feeling of skin as promised
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
My boyfriend and I have tried these and they are a decent condom. Let's be honest, most of us don't like the feel of them on either side of the equation, but it is important to have safe sex, so we put up with them. I myself as a woman don't care for them and I am in a long term relationship so I'm not worried about the STD part. But it is important for others to use good quality condoms to protect against these things and pregnancy. So far, we have not had any break. Knock on wood.

I would say these are quality condoms, but I don't think that it feels like there is nothing there. As far as smell or taste goes, I cannot say for myself, because I did not try to smell them and I didn't try them with oral as we don't use condoms for that. I do, however, like that they are just simple and straight forward. I think it is great to offer good condoms that are latex free for people who have allergies and don't want to use the natural ones, however I think they should make these more affordable. There aren't very many in a pack and stores don't always have bigger packs that are more affordable, and if you buy them online here, they are still pretty expensive. If they were amazing I wouldn't care so much but there is only so much they can do, however beware of condom propaganda and get something that is good quality and a fair price I say! :P

If you feel like buying a small pack to try, that would be fine. There is nothing wrong with curiosity, and honestly, they don't feel bad. The bit of friction that is provided by the condom can be stimulating, but this could be an issue if there wasn't enough lubrication in the equation but then again that is what foreplay is for, right?! Oh and you can use water based or silicone based lubricant, just don't use oils.
I would say I had a nice experience while using these but that was due to the pleasure I was receiving and condoms can get in the way of that at times, however, these do not get in the way too much. You can feel them and the advertising is a bit exaggerated because they aren't really super thin necessarily and you don't feel like you are "skin to skin" as they claim. The material has benefits as it is latex free and as far as being reliable they are indeed. I wouldn't say these are anything that is amazingly revolutionary and I think they are a bit overpriced, but I don't mind my boyfriend using them as long as he doesn't, though the price point again is not very good. I would say we could probably find something that feels just as good for a condom for a better price, though it really depends where you go. No offense to the website, because I love it, heh...but they are pretty pricey on here! <3 still tho!
Follow-up commentary
I wouldn't say that I love to use these, because let's face it...condoms get in the way of spontaneity and sensations. It is better to be safe than sorry, though. Being in a committed relationship, this is more about warding off pregnancy till we are married and ready to have kids. We use these because I am not currently on birth control. From personal experience and from others that I know, birth control messes with your hormones when you want to consider having children. So, I stopped taking birth control long ago for health concerns.

Moving on, however... back to the product. My fiance buys these, and they always function the way they are supposed to. I've never had any issues. I do think they are still a bit pricey. When I send him to the store or website, I just want him to return with something that will work honestly. So, we are still using them, and we have some in the drawer by the bed. So far they have not gotten in the way of any fun or pleasure that I can think of, so I cannot complain. In conclusions, I still approve of them for now!
