Start Me Up

This is a wonderful and compact gel that is excellent for arousing your erogenous zones; if you are sensitive already or have stubborn genitals, it should help instigate some feeling for sure. It has a wonderful cooling and tingling sensation that is just so pleasurable. Just don't put it in your mouth!
Small, Pleasant Smell, Excellent for arousing
Terrible taste

extremely useful review


Start It Up accelerator gel is a gel that can be used for nipple or clitoral stimulation. The gel enhances sensitivity around these areas and makes touch incredibly enjoyable. It leaves a wonderful cooling and tingling sensation.

I've never had sensitivity issues around my nipples and clitoris, but I was instantly aroused when I applied it. It can be used by anyone; I would especially recommend it to those who may have trouble with sensation in these areas. However, if you don't have this issue, it's still great to use because it is, seriously, so arousing.

This can be used by both men and women, in solo play or in couple play. It's a great gel for foreplay, and during sex as well. You should only need a dime size amount each time to feel stimulated, but you can apply as much as you need, because it is completely safe.

It also has no color to it; it is completely clear.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

It's not the lightest gel ever, but it's also not super heavy. I would liken it to water based lubricant. It's not unpleasant to the touch-- in fact it feels kind of slippery, but it stays in place once applied, although it can rub off when it comes in contact with something else, i.e. a penis or a toy. However, even though it may come off, the sensation is not affected.

It comes in pump dispensing bottle (which is super helpful during sex, so you don't have to worry about cleaning substance off the bottle toy), and it comes out super easily. It starts off slippery and a little bit slimy and remains that way when applied.

It does not have any texture; if anything, the lack of texture resembles a water based lube.
    • Slick
    • Smooth

Taste / Aroma

The gel has a very light aroma and smells a bit like citrus. It shouldn't bother most people, unless you have an incredibly sensitive nose. You cannot smell it when you apply it to your clit or your nipples (I barely smelled it on my hand. It left a very light pleasing citrus smell; it could almost be mistaken for a nice soap). You're partner may notice it if they play with your clit/nipples but, again, it shouldn't overwhelm them.

It has a terrible taste; it tastes like chemicals but leaves a nice tingling feeling thirty seconds afterwards. But still, it tastes awful so don't use this during oral sex and please don't drink it.
    • Bad taste
    • Light smell
    • Smells good


To be honest, I've never tried a stimulating gel and was almost not interested in it until Eden assigned it to me. I thought, "What the hell, why not give it a try?" and I love it. It definitely arouses my clit and left a fun tingling sensation. I used one of my vibes on my clit and it heightened sensation, so I'll probably use this during many solo situations.

It lasted for about ten minutes, so if you like long play sessions, make sure to reapply it, so you can keep the feeling of it. It washes off your body super easily; the directions say to use a little bit of soap and water and you should be cleaned off. I had no issue with any remaining substance; all of it washed off after one cleaning.

I really liked how safe this product is, and I also love that it is a vegan product. It is sugar, petro and glycerin free, so it is safe to use this during vaginal sex for those prone to infections.

Your skin can also absorb the material, so it is not completely and utterly necessary to clean up after use
(though it's a good idea).

It's also compatible with ALL toys because it is water based.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Reapply often


It comes in a 1.6 oz pump bottle, which I really like because you don't have to worry about getting your gel all over the bottle just to get some out. Also, it does not leak. The user instructions were very vague and simply said it was body safe and apply as much as you need. Luckily, Eden was able to provide more specific instructions.

The bottle is white and has the name of the product written on it, so it's not incredibly discreet, but it's small enough that it can be hidden pretty easily. It's small enough for air travel, which is always a major plus.

It is also recyclable; when you're done, simply wash it out and give it to your recycling man/ woman.

The gel bottle came in small plastic bag, so be prepared to have a new home ready for it when you receive it.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense

Special Features

I didn't know where to put the chemical components, so I'm going to stick it here. It is made of water, propylene glycol, euterpe oleracea fruit extract, punica granaturn extract, arginine, menthol polysorbate 20, tetrasodium edta, triethanolamine, citric acid, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, and propylparaben.

It leaves a wonderful cooling arousing and tingling sensation that can last up to ten to fifteen minutes.
    • Cooling
    • Increases sensitivity
    • Tingling

Personal comments

I've never tried a stimulation gel before, but I'm immensely happy with this one. I doubt I'll use it during sex because I like a lot of oral play, but I'm definitely bringing it out during my solo sessions. I just love the sensation it leaves behind; it is just excellent for arousing sensation.
