Treasure trove gift set - sensual kit by Kama Sutra - review by married with children

Not sure I would call it a treasure trove.

Overall this is a ok set. It is either hit or miss. I like the taste of the dust. And the pleasure balm works ok. But the oil leaves you wanting something better quality. And not to mention the stickiness it leaves on everything it touches. I could really do without the stickiness. Being sticky in bed is not welcome around here. I can handle sweaty, I don't even mind sperm getting all over the place. But stickiness is just wrong.
the dust is good, the pleasure balm works
it gets sticky, the oil is not very useful, the pleasure balm has weird flavor combo
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This kit is used to add some flavor to your love life, pun intended. You can use this to add to your foreplay. Use the dust to add to your oral adventures. Use the pleasure balm to add stimulation to your lovers nipples. Or give each other a massage mixed with some tongue workouts. Basically if you oral adventures are getting to be a bore, just add this kit to your night time fun.

The packaging makes this a perfect gift for weddings. Is your partners birthday coming up, this would make a great gift. I purchased this for a just because gift. And it worked perfectly.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The body dust has been covered in another review, but I will go over it again. It is very similar to cornstarch. The same texture and consistency. Just a different color and taste. It is light, and not too sticky. You could easily go to sleep right after using it without feeling like you have to jump in the shower. I have used a lot of products that have left me feeling like I was rolling around in a pile of sugar, this is not one of them.

The oil of love has a thick syrupy feel to it. It is a lot thicker then any other massage oil I have used in the past. Almost as thick as some fake maple syrup. Not real maple syrup, as real syrup is thick when sitting at room temp or below. The oil also left you feeling sticky when all done. It did not absorb into the skin very well, it almost just sat on the skin waiting for a shower to wash it off.

The pleasure balm is like a very light massage oil. It is thin. Too thin for the lotion bottle that it comes in. I would have liked this to come it a different type of package, maybe something similar to what lube comes in. We almost made a mess the first time we tried to use this, as it came out of the package very fast. It did stay in place when rubbed on with your hands, but you could not pour it onto a spot and expect it to stay. This also gets sticky during use.

Taste / Aroma

The body dust taste ok. It is slightly too sweet; and the taste only last for a few minutes, if that. Too much of the dust will leave you a sticky mess in no time flat. You need to apply just the right amount with each application. It has a flavor you would expect from something raspberry flavored. It almost taste like real raspberries. Almost. It still has that artificial candy taste to it. That is part of the reason to not over do the powder with each application.

The oil is not really a oil. It is water based. It has a light raspberry scent. I did not taste it, as I am worried about how safe it is as a edible product. I have to assume that it taste like the other products in this Kama Sutra line.

The pleasure balm is a mix of raspberries and menthol. It is a weird taste and smell. Menthol and raspberries are not a mixture I would have thought to do. It almost leaves your tongue and lips tingling from the menthol. I am still unsure if I enjoy how this taste, or don't. It is just a wired combination of flavors.
    • Smells good
    • Strong taste


The dust works pretty good. Assuming that you don't dust on too much. If you applied the right amount, it will flavor your partners body for a few minutes at a time. When you cant taste it any longer, add a light dusting to keep the flavor fresh. I like the flavor the the dust. I just do not like being left feeling sticky. And this whole kit leaves you feeling sticky.

The oil works ok for massages. It dries up, unlike oil based massage liquid. But it leaves your skin with a sticky crust like layer. It just leaves us feeling dirty. I can deal with using massage oil and being left feeling greasy, that is a given that goes along with massage oil. But this is water based and should not leave you feeling dirtier then oil would. But it does. The oil is kind of a disappointment.

The pleasure balm was ok. If you don't mind the combo of flavors. It warms up when you rub it or blow on it. So that is a nice touch. It does not get hot, just luke warm. The problem I have with this, is that it for external use only. So if you use it on her pussy, you risk getting it inside of her. So we have kept it to her nipples only. It would be nice to use this on her clit, but I don't want to risk it. Not sure what the side effects would be if it were to find its way inside.

So, overall if you can get past the stickiness that these three items leave you feeling; then this is a great set. If you have a problem with being left feeling all hot and sticky, then these is going to not be your cup of tea.
    • Gets sticky
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water
    • Reapply often


This comes packaged in a beautiful cardboard box, fit for gift giving. The shipping department even took time and energy to wrap this up in a plastic bag and tape it shut, to keep it from spilling onto my other items. The cardboard box has a lift style lid. When lifted off of the box, you will find your items inside. They are protected from damage with some shredded heavy card stock. The body gel and the oil are both sealed in their own plastic bag. The body dust is also in a plastic bag, inside of a satin drawstring bag. The packaging is all set up to protect you from spills and messes, and also for gift giving.

There were no instructions included with this gift set. I dont think you really need any, but they would still be nice. Things like "is the love oil for external use only?" That is one question off the top of my head that I would have liked answered. I am sure other users would have other questions that should have been answered.

The oil bottle can make a mess, if not careful. But then what oil bottle is mess free? Just take care to make sure it is closed after you use it. And if the outside gets oil on it, to wipe it clean to help contain the mess.

I would have to say that this packaging is pretty discreet. It does have the KamaSutra logo on it, but it is only a bath and body product, right? Of-course, you could always just toss the packaging if you are worried about it not being discreet enough for you. It is not needed for anything.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Recyclable
    • Would make a nice gift

Follow-up commentary
I cant really add much to this review. It took us a few months of using this to be able to write the review. So not much, if anything is going to change in a few more months of use.
