Some what Sensational Balm

Overall, we are left with mixed emotions. She has no desire to use the product again as it had no enjoyable effect for her. He thought that it was easy to use and helped him somewhat, however to her it felt more like a lube and not in a good way (made me overly wet and not able to enjoy penetration). We will most likely be retiring this product at our house.
East to use, safe for all body parts, smells great
She didn't feel any numbing sensation

useful review


The primary use for this is for a male who wants to try to last a little bit longer, or for use on people that want to numb other areas of their body. We used it on him and on both of our nipples to try it out with a little bit of play. He also tried nibbling on it to see what it tasted like. The ingredients in it are pretty normal for a numbing balm: water, glycerin, and benzocaine.
    • Foreplay
    • Masturbation
    • Sex

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This feels like a light weight oil, but a little thicker. He scooped it out with his fingers and applied it liberally to his member. The best description he could come up when it was applied was that is is similar to the feel of KY Jelly, but a little numbing. It stayed on during the whole act for him, and the bit we applied to our nipples stayed too.
    • Slick
    • Smooth

Taste / Aroma

This definitely smells like strawberries. The champagne didn't smell too over powering. The taste was okay but not the best. It tasted good at first, but then the benzocaine kicked in and left a bitter taste.
    • Light smell
    • Strong taste


The Shunga sensations balm stayed on all parts during the entire act and there was minimal effort required to take it off when finished. I used it on my nipples and felt no sensation from using it. It didn't hurt anything to try using it, but I was a bit disappointed that it had no effect. When he used, it it acted like a lubricant and I felt that it was almost too much of lubricant, that it and made things more slippery than I would like.
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water


This was safely packed for shipping, and the container stayed closed so there was no spilling. You could travel with it, but I would worry about spilling, so I would put it in some type of container/bag just in case.
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense

Personal comments

I am glad that we tried this product, but I honestly do not think that we will use it again. There wasn't enough of a positive experience for either of us to consider adding this to our regular use list.

    Kind of defeats the purpose of a "numbing" product if it doesn't actually numb .... thanks for the review.
