Flickering touch massage oil by LELO - review by KaraSutra

Oil me up and rub one out!

Having sensitive skin has led me to be very picky when it comes to massage oils, wanting one that’s not only gentle on my skin but also wonderfully scented and as close to all natural as possible, instead of being filled with tones of junk many other lesser brands seem to contain. Fortunately I was thoroughly impressed with the line of Flickering Touch Massage Oils and my love of Lelo remains (as does my respect for the company)
smells amazing, absorbs nicely, doesn't sting or itch
slight coating feeling

extremely useful review
This fantastic massage oil comes respectfully packaged in a black box that has an image of the product on the front encircled in dark brown. The Lelo logo is found atop the box in metallic gold writing and the back contains the ingredients as well as a small description written in 5 different languages. There’s nothing on it that’s rude, inappropriate, tacky or sexist, instead it’s professional, discreet and looks like something you’d find in a high end department store rather than on an intimate accessory website (I’m surprised big chain retailers haven’t picked it up yet!).

The bottle is a thick black glass cylinder with metallic gold writing and a fun orange circular cap. To be honest, I thought it looked more like a high end perfume bottle than a massage oil. There is nothing on the bottle that’s rude, tacky or inappropriate; just the company logo, scent of the oil and copyright (written on the back).

Once the cap has been removed the golden pump spray dispenser can be depressed delivering a quick shot of their scented oil onto your hands, back or any other part of the body that needs some TLC. The scent of the Clove and Amber oil (the one I received) is warm, soft, comforting, musky, slightly spicy and very inviting, being neither too heavy nor too overpowering and something I think most could pull off. Having said that, I don’t know that I’d like to wear this in the summer (because it is a very warm scent rather than being fresh and light), but can very easily see myself rubbing some on and cuddling up the cooler fall and winter months.

*on two separate occasions I was asked what I was wearing and complimented on it. Though when your traveling up 32 floors in an elevator it’s usually rather close quarters.

Regarding the texture, the oil was rather thin and runny which allowed it to spread easily and leave my skin feeling wonderfully smooth and supple. It didn’t sting, burn or itch, nor did it irritate my sensitive skin, instead absorbing rather quickly and leaving only a lingering scent behind.

Warning: Massage oils are not meant to be used as lubes and can break down condoms along with possibly causing issues if used internally. If you want to give a massage make sure to wash your hands well before being intimate as lingering oil on the hands can cause damage to latex.
While it absorbed quite well it did unfortunately leave me feeling slightly coated in product. Luckily it wasn’t anything I minded or felt I needed to wash off. I just felt a little oily, but it is an oil so that’s to be expected. Other than that the box claims that there is real 24k gold flakes in the oil that are meant to leave the skin radiant and luminous – maybe it was just me but other than a slight sheen (from the oil) my skin didn’t look any different.
Follow-up commentary
Although I still haven't seen the little flecks of gold promised by the box I absolutely love this massage oil! It smells amazing, glides on wonderfully and with a pump action dispenser your able to apply a small amount rather than accidentally over doing it (something I find happens with flip lids or screw caps). I've had this for some time now and because I don't need a lot to get full coverage it's lasted a very long time. Lelo has done it once again!

    I heard the flecks of gold are hard to see under strong light. This is the first review I've read from someone who likes the scent.
