Exotic, Perfumed Lotion

Though the Sensual Love Lotion was intended to be a scented aphrodisiac massage oil, it is absorbed into the skin far too quickly for use as a massage oil. However, it makes a lovely perfumed lotion, that moisturizes well and stays moisturized throughout the day. The scent is rich and exotic, though rather strong, but with care the perfume can be subtle instead of overwhelming.

Use

This Love Lotion is a thin yet rich lotion, scented with essential oils, and believed to have aphrodisiac properties. While designed to be a massage oil, it absorbs so quickly that it fares better as a perfumed lotion, making the wearer feel sensuous and sexy. Though not so good for massage, it leaves the skin soft, supple, and wrapped in an exotic mix of scents.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Sensual Love Lotion is a thin lotion that is almost, but not quite runny. This works to its advantage: it absorbs very quickly, so its thin texture allows you to spread it before it disappears. Though thin, it is a velvety lotion that spreads across the skin like a massage oil before being absorbed. Unfortunately, unlike a massage oil, it is completely absorbed in a few strokes. While it absorbs too well for a massage oil, it does well as a lotion. After it has been rubbed in, it almost completely disappears, leaving none of the greasy or sticky textures many lotions leave. All that is left behind is the scent, and a very subtle slip to the skin that feels much like a tiny amount of silicone lubricant.

Taste / Aroma

This lotion is scented with essential oils of rosewood, tangerine, ylang ylang, geranium, cedarwood and patchouli. The result is a rich, complex, earthy, exotic scent. The oils are rather concentrated, so this lotion should be applied sparingly, otherwise the scent can become overwhelming. Asthmatics who are triggered by perfumes should steer clear of this lotion, as even a small amount used on the hands could be too strong.

This lotion is not edible, but minutes after being rubbed in it leaves a slight bitter taste on the skin. It might be best to not apply this lotion to places you want to be kissed.

It should be noted that while many enjoy the scent of this lotion, it will not appeal to everyone. Some may find it to strong, and the very sensitive may find it acrid.

Performance

As a massage oil, Sensual Love Lotion falls far short. The name gives a clue as to why: it acts like a lotion, not a massage oil. While it has a nice glide at first, it disappears into the skin very quickly, forcing the massager to reapply over and over.

However, as a true lotion this product fares far better. Though it absorbs quickly, it leaves the skin soft and supple. Though thin, it packs some serious moisturizing power, and it manages to last through two to three hand-washings before the skin begins to dry again. The lotion base would make a lovely hand and body lotion, were it not for the strong scent. If this lotion were used in large enough quantities to soften and soothe the arms or legs, the room would begin to smell like a perfume factory.

If too much is applied and the scent becomes too strong, it isn't difficult to remove even after it has been absorbed. Spending extra time lathering and washing the area was enough to remove most of the perfume; unfortunately, this also undoes all the lovely things the lotion does to your skin.

Packaging

The packaging is both cute and practical. Under the cap the tube was sealed, which is always reassuring, and the squeeze tube design makes for minimal mess and fuss. At first, the art on the tube looks like an abstract, artsy heart and flower. On closer inspection however, it becomes obvious that those black squiggles are sperm, which means that the heart must be - you guessed it - the ovum. It's cute, but to some it may come off as too cutesy and girly.

One would think that this is a simple, self explanatory product needing no instructions, for no instructions are what the packaging provides. However, it is not clear from any part of the packaging that this is intended to be a massage oil instead of a personal lotion. On the plus side, the ingredient list is in a large, easily read font. This is a nice change from other product, especially for those who always read ingredient lists.

Special Features

While this lotion claims that its ingredients have aphrodisiac properties, your mileage may vary. Both men and women were asked about the scent, and while most found it pleasant and maybe even a little sexy, no one's libido was roused by the scent alone of the lotion. They did, however, find the attitude of a woman who felt sensuous and pampered by this lotion to be very sexy indeed. As a sex-magnet, it fails to measure up. As a product to spoil yourself or a special someone with, Sensual Love Lotion works quite well.
Follow-up commentary
I have since found a non-asthmatic friend who was willing to play guinea pig and report back, and she adores the Haphor Aphrodisia sensual love lotion. She and her boyfriend both love the scent. They've tried using it for massage on both of them, and found that it lasts a bit longer on him (normal to oily skin) than her (mildly dry skin). It was enough for a quick, five minute pre-sex erotic massage, but then it disappeared into the skin like a good lotion. Otherwise, it's her new favorite perfumed lotion, used sparingly. It's a bit enough bottle that it will last a long time.

So the final verdict is that this is a great product for short massages as a part of foreplay, because you don't have to go take a shower to get it off before you move on to the rest of your play time. For longer massages, though, you're still going to need to break out the massage oils.

    Sounds interesting - too bad it has such a strong scent if used as a lotion!

    It's not so much that the scent is strong if it's used as a lotion, as that it's just strong. I found it less overwhelming when used as a lotion than used as a massage oil, because I could use much less. None of the non-asthmatics I demoed this with had a problem with the strength of the smell. They noted that it was strong, but it didn't bother them. My fellow asthmatics coud

    Hm, I didn't notice that the end of that got chopped off. Basically, I was saying that my asthmatic friends found it overpowering in even small amounts, while my non-asthmatic friends never had a problem even with large amounts.
