Ginger pheromone - lotion by Topco Sales - review by Red Riding Hood

Add resource

It smells like Christmas!

This acts like a basic hand lotion for the most part, with a light formula. It smells wonderful, but the scent wears off fairly quickly. It has added pheromones, but don't expect something wonderful to happen. It's good for the price and makes a decent massage lotion, but isn't the best product in its class.
Low price, Smells great, Dual-usage
Doesn't work well for extremely dry skin or a body lotion

extremely useful review


This is a fairly standard lotion that has a light base with pheromones added. This product could be for anyone, but due to the scent, I would assume it's geared toward ladies. Also, exercise caution when using the product. If it irritates, discontinue use. I think I love this lotion for the scent, but it's not a lotion that I would consider anythign really special. This product has a dual-use with a massage lotion-like slip. The more you apply, the more slip you can get, creating a nice glide for sensual massage.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is a light lotion that absorbs very well. It doesn't feel greasy or heavy and it absorbs fairly quickly if you apply in small amounts and add as needed. It's just thick enough to lock-in moisture without it feeling like you dipped your hand in wax. I think this makes it ideal for an on-the-go lotion or perhaps a hand lotion. I tend to like thicker formulas for the rest of my body. It has just enough slip to be able to double as a massage lotion, but you have to use a pretty good amount for it to get slick.

Taste / Aroma

The taste is something like a plastic. It's not flavored and is not intended to be eaten, but for the sake of the review, I took a lick. I wasn't impressed. The scent is divine, though. When you read the word "ginger", think of a gingersnap. This is nothing like the spice, with a peppy kick. It has a very mellow, good enough to eat, Christmas cookie kind of smell. This is one reason I think this lotion is intended for women. The scent doesn't last very long, so if you are in love with it, you may have to reapply.


This serves well for a regular lotion. It moisturizes for a decent amount of time, but the scent doesn't last long. It's not greasy or anything, so if you need to wash it for whatever reason, it cleans up easily. I LOVE the light weight of the lotion and the scent. As a massage lotion, it was "just okay". It has some slip and helps your skin glide over the area you are rubbing, but it's not super slick. I didn't really notice any pheromones working their magic, but maybe it's that subtle. I don't quite know. I'll have to do more experiments to see what sort of reactions I get from others.


This comes in a standard tube with a flip-top. It is a good-sized tube with 4fl.oz of product. It, of course gets slippery if your hands are covered in the lotion. It's not particularly pretty, but it's not super tacky, either. It's small enough to fit into MOST purses, but that also would depend on what else you're keeping in your purse. It's a good-sized tube.

Special Features

This is a dual-purpose moisturizing massage lotion. You can wear it or use it for massage. It works fine for either purpose, but I mostly use it as a lotion. It has pheromones and ginseng added to "boost sexual energy". I didn't notice this effect, but maybe I haven't used it enough to be able to really tell.
Follow-up commentary
This is another one of those body products that I am not sure about as a whole, but I just love the scent! I've been trying not to wear it too much, but it's the best time of year for it right now! I would rebuy this based on scent alone, but I can't say the pheromones work and so on. Maybe they do and they are working on me??? Who knows for sure? I do love the scent of this product, though and I can't wait to rock it all through the holidays!
