Flickering touch massage oil by LELO - review by Heartthrob

Love the Feel, Miss the Glow

Lelo Flickering Touch ignites passions and turns a simple massage into an amazing experience. Use with a lover or alone to enjoy a comfortable massage which melts into an almost naked (without oil) frictionless, experience. In addition, Flickering Touch can be used as a seductive perfume for those dates out or cozy nights in and as an all around moisturizer. However you use it, you're sure to fall in love with Flickering Touch.
Weightless, Non greasy, Profoundly erotic
No gold to speak of in my bottle

extremely useful review


Lelo Flickering Touch Massage Oil is designed to be used for gentle, sensual massage, a body moisturizer, or even as a light, erotic, perfume. I, myself have used it for massage and as a perfume, however each time I use it, my skin comes out feeling baby soft.

Massage: Use alone or with a partner. I have found this massage oil to work wonderfully for gentle breast massage and teasing. The formula is just greasy enough to make me feel sexy but not so greasy that I need to jump into the shower afterward. Use with a partner for deep, intimate massage. Once applied, the oil gently works its way into the skin, taking about 10 minutes to completely absorb. Once absorbed, the skin is left silky soft, allowing your lovers hands to continue gliding across your body.

Body Moisturizer: Although Lelo really didn't intend this product to be a body moisturizer, I see no reason why it can't be used as such, especially for those special occasions. Simply rub into the skin for a baby soft feel. The formula is designed to be low on grease making it ideal for hands.

Perfume: I have put just a little on my chest and gone out on a date with my boyfriend only to find him intrigued by my alluring scent. The aroma is just strong enough to catch his eye but not strong enough to catch the eyes of everyone else in the room. Use as a form of seduction for your lover.

Obviously, Flickering Touch goes above and beyond what most massage oils do. Every bottle of Flickering Touch contains 24 carrot gold flecks. That's right, I did say gold! I was so impressed I couldn't wait to try it. Imagine my dismay when my bottle failed to produce any. I don't know why, but I haven't seen a single fleck or sparkle. Even so, don't be detoured. Flickering Touch, whether it comes with gold or not, is superb.

The ingredients for Flickering Touch are apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil, jojoba seed oil, d-limonene,linalool, hexylcinnamaldehyde, mica, titanium oxide, iron oxide, and lastly gold. For most people, allergy concerns should be minimal but if you are allergic to any of the above, please don't use. Finally, the oil is not edible and should not be used for any type of oral play. In addition, the oil is not intended as a lube. If it does come into contact with the genitals it might cause some irritation but as long as it is not used as a personal lube, you shouldn't have a problem.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Flickering Touch is one of the thinner oils on the market today. Even so, it's highly effective at reducing friction from fast rubbing hands, and doesn't run all over the place. It's slightly greasy, which is to be expected, but feels silky against the skin and leaves no residue. It's so lightweight you may forget that your entire body has been covered in oil. I know I have.

The bottle has a gold, push pump, which dispenses about the same amount of oil as expensive bottles of lotion dispense. In other words, not much. This can be a blessing if you want to control the amount of oil on your skin (like me)or a nightmare if you simply want to cover yourself in oil. It'll take a lot of pumps to do that. It takes about ten pumps to get my boyfriend's chest nice and slick for a massage. Although, half the fun is adorning him in oil.

Taste / Aroma

I have the Balsam Fir and Bergamot scent, which is really perfect for the holidays. Although the oil does not smell like a Christmas tree, it does smell festive yet quite erotic. The scent is deep with masculine florals mixed in. This could easily pass for an expensive, light, perfume. In fact, in many respects, it's better than most perfumes on the market.

Although the oil is not edible, it does have a slightly bitter taste. Even so, that does not hinder my boyfriend, who often accompanies his massages with body kisses. Just make sure you don't literally eat the oil.

I am one lucky girl. I receive long, deep, massages all the time. I couldn't have received Lelo Flickering Touch at a better time! The oil is easy for my boyfriend and myself to dispense, and sinks deep into my skin, hence, no greasy sheets! He simply applies some to my body, massages me, and allows his hands to gently glide along with the oil. Once the oil has absorbed into my skin he continues on, a little harder this time, but still without friction. The result is an almost naked feeling, comfortable massage! By the end, my skin is soft, sweet smelling, and nourished by vitamin E. There is no need for me to clean up however soap and water will remove any lasting residue should it occur.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural


The super sexy Flickering Touch arrived in a super sexy, little, black box adorned with the silhouette of the bottle, a gray circle, and LELO printed in gold. On the side is a picture of the bottle with a description of its purpose, to ignite romance. The back contains instructions on use. Be sure to shake the bottle vigorously to mix the gold, remove the stopper, and push down on the pump to dispense. When finished, place the stopper back on and store in a cool place.

The bottle itself is pretty discreet. It holds 4 oz of oil and boasts the LELO label in gold, the scent, and Flickering Massage Oil in small gold letters. It's a strong bottle, being made from metal, and won't easily break.

The colored stopper is constructed from clear plastic and serves as a classy, oval, protective stopper to the pump, making the oil perfect for travel. No spills here.
