Paint me a happy little tree

While this is fun, tasty enough and available in several flavors, you'd be better off picking up a bottle of chocolate syrup at the grocery store. I do love the jar, however since it must be refrigerated anyways, you may as well pick up something that doubles as a sundae topping. The product itself gets a three, but since there are cheaper alternatives that can easily net five stars, I would consider that before purchase.
Tastes and smells sweet
A fun way to initiate foreplay
Nice glass jar
Iffy ingredients
Horrid brush
Must be refrigerated

extremely useful review


Kama Sutra's Lovers Body Paint is a sweet treat for the bedroom that's meant to kickstart a session of licking, kissing and teasing your lover. If does require refrigeration after opening, which means that this is not suited to those who cannot store it in the fridge for fear of roommates or family members stumbling across it and raising eyebrows. Available on Eden in Caramel, Dark Chocolate Raspberry and Chocolate, I picked mine up as a part of a kit in White Chocolate. It is sold in a 50g (or 2oz) container, and the little jar makes for great storage after it is all used up.

For those of you who are health-conscious, seek elsewhere - with ingredients including corn syrup, ethyl alcohol and titanium dioxide, this is not for those who try to keep a healthy diet.

Kama Sutra's body paint does have an included brush for application, however you can just as easily dip in a (clean) finger and paint with your hands to make things really intimate. Do not use this paint on sensitive or broken skin, on the genitals or if you or your partner are allergic to any of the ingredients - a spot test can really go a long way to avoiding unnecessary irritation.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is quite a thick substance, particularly if it is coming straight from the fridge - you may wish to warm a small amount in the microwave for use if you find it too viscous right out of the jar. If you decide to warm the body paint, ensure that you stir it thoroughly to avoid hotspots and test a small amount for temperature before drizzling it on the skin. When we heated it, we went twenty seconds, and then stirred, before doing another two ten-second intervals and allowing it to cool for two minutes before use.

This Body Paint moves very slowly across the skin, and tends to stay in place fairly well. It does "snap back" a little bit if it is warmed, but it's thick enough that that it doesn't need much coaxing to stay in place when cool. Unfortunately, as with most chocolates or caramels, it is rather sticky, so even after a thorough licking, you'll wish to wash the remainder off of your skin. On the plus side, though, this means that it doesn't feel sticky or oily, which makes it a more comfortable product to have on your skin than a flavored oil if you dislike a greasy feel on your skin. Keeping a pack of Eden Wipes (or other wipes) next to the bed when you intend to use this will provide a quick and easy way to remove most of the residue before you get it all over the bed.

Taste / Aroma

Here, it's a little bit tricky for me to evaluate. We tried this product twice before we threw it out, because we completely forgot to put it back in the fridge after use. Because it contains milk, we definitely weren't willing to risk having left it out, even for a little while. That being said, we had been debating whether to toss it or keep it anyways, since the taste is a little bit iffy. It doesn't taste a thing like white chocolate, though it doesn't have the same terrible chemical taste that the regular Chocolate flavor boasts. It's plenty sweet, but there's no real distinct flavor. As a white chocolate lover, this was rather disappointing. My partner enjoyed the flavor, however since neither one of us are a fan of sticky residue, this was on the fence before taste even came into play.

Kama Sutra's White Chocolate Body Paint doesn't smell like white chocolate either - at least, none that I have ever had the pleasure of sniffing. It doesn't have a strong scent, and it is definitely not unpleasant, but again: it's just sort of a sweet, nondescript aroma. It's mild, but it can easily be smelled when the container is open.


As far as being able to paint with this, the brush was an absolute detriment. With rough, uneven bristles and a hard plastic handle, nothing about this applicator is comfortable. It's four inches long, one inch of which is bristles, and if you wish to actually paint with it, you have to pick up a massive amount of body paint in order for it not to become a streaky, scratchy mess. After warming up the paint, it is a bit easier to use with the brush, but quite frankly, it's too large to allow for really nice designs unless you intend to use the entire jar. Trying to paint with this reminded me of those massive, useless brushes that they gave you in elementary school, and as I certainly didn't like them then, this was no better now. The bristles are also not very firmly attached to the handle, which means that if you're not careful, you can end up with the straw-like strands in your mouth. The brush is easy to clean, though, with soap and water, though you should make sure you do a very thorough job because this product can go bad.

Finger painting or choosing a smaller, sturdier makeup brush makes this product work much better - even a Popsicle stick would be great for spreading this over your lover's skin if you wished to make larger designs. As I've said, it does leave behind a sticky residue on your skin, but it's no worse than what you'd get using chocolate syrup or honey.
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water


The small glass jar in which the body paint is packaged is actually really great - though it is not discreet enough to keep in your fridge with the label on, if you took the label off, it's likely that anyone snooping would think that it was some kind of spread. It is a pain that it has to be stored in the refrigerator at all, but this is actually the best option for storage that I can think of given the circumstances.

The jar arrives sealed with a layer of foil, and as soon as this is removed, it then needs to go into the fridge in order to stay fresh. Prior to allowing the air to come into contact with the product, this can be stored in a cool, dry area outside of the fridge, for example if you intend to give it as a gift.

The ingredients are not written anywhere on the jar itself, which is unfortunate, but it is clear exactly what this product is and what it is intended for. The wide mouth of the jar makes it easy to get as much or as little product as you desire - you can choose to use this either all at once or sparingly over several applications.
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Would make a nice gift


My partner and I opted to try this once with our fingers and once with a small makeup brush. Neither of us is very artistic, but it was a lot of fun to apply and even more to lick off. The makeup brush was easier (and cleaner) to use than our fingers, but painting with fingers is more fun because you can feel your partner twitch and writhe beneath you. Since my partner hates sticky residue on his skin, I was surprised he was interested in giving it a second go, especially since we rarely engage in foreplay. Both times were rather brief, as we moved on quickly to other flavored products, (including several from Kama Sutra), but we enjoyed ourselves.
Follow-up commentary
I've since moved on to Amour body chocolate, and if you're here because you're looking for a recommendation, I highly recommend that instead!

    I'm glad you enjoyed this & I appreciate the thorough review, thank you! I like how you are honest about what does & doesn't work for you, but you always cover the product fairly, regardless of your individual experience with it!

    Bob Ross would be proud of u!
    I think corn syrup is ok but high fructose corn syrup is not. The partially hydrogenated crap is also crap.

    I also think I could buy a jar of Nutella for cheaper than this and it would taste better lmao. Thanks for the honest review!
