Stimulating Sensation that Lasts.

If you'd like to enhance your g-spot experience (whether you're searching for the first time or want to improve what you've already got) and are not prone to UTIs, Spot On is an excellent choice. Though it contains glycerine and is not compatible with condoms, the light peppermint cream will stimulate your nerve endings and enhance the sensations of vaginal play. The stimulation lasts hours, so even in marathon sessions you won't need to reapply.
Very stimulating without burning, increases sensitivity, long-lasting.
Lasts too long, contains glycerin and ruins condoms, g-spot not affected differently than rest.

extremely useful review


Spot On G-spot Stimulating Gel is designed to perk up the nerve endings of the vagina using peppermint oil as an active ingredient. Says the bottle, "It exists, treat it right." Spot On has a creamy consistency, a faint pink color, and a light peppermint odor.

The product is formulated to stimulate in the bright tingling/cooling manner that only peppermint can, and its express purpose is to heighten the sensitivity of the g-spot. It enhances sensation for the rest of the vagina and labia as well, and could easily be applied to the clitoris for those who want to increase clitoral sensitivity.

Women are the intended users of Spot On, and its stimulating effects can be enjoyed solo, with any partner using a dildo or a vibrator, or with a fluid-bonded partner for PIV sex. Those who rely on condoms for barrier protection should not have vaginal sex when using Spot On, as its oils may degrade latex condoms.

Many ingredients are brought together to help Spot On stimulate your body. Water is the base of the gel. An emulsion is formed with carthamus tinctorius seed oil, vegetable oil extracted from seeds of safflower. Propanediol is a solvent and, in this case, the emulsifying agent, allowing water and oil to remain in suspension together. Glycerin, a water-soluble polyol, improves the smoothness of the cream. Because glycerin can be a food source for microorganisms, women who are prone to yeast infections should not apply this cream vaginally. Polyacrylamide is used to flocculate solids in a liquid suspension, and it increases the viscosity of Spot On. Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil, the oil of the sweet almond, works with the safflower seed oil while imparting a lightly sweet scent. The solvent c13-14 isoparrafin acts as an emollient, hydrating the membrane to which you're applying Spot On. Mentha piperita oil, oil of peppermint, is the active stimulating ingredient. Tocopheryl acetate, the chemical product of vinegar and vitamin E, is used as a skin softener. If pure vitamin E was used, rather than its acetate, not as much would penetrate the skin. Menthyl lactate provides a refreshing fragrance. Laureth-7, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, and Propylene glycol act along with propanediol as emulsifying agents. Diazolidinyl urea is an antimicrobial agent, allowing you to keep Spot On in the cabinet between uses. Methylparaben and Propylparaben are common anti-fungal agents. (According to this source they developed naturally in many plants, including blueberries, as a defense against fruit flies). Women sensitive to UTIs and yeast infections may wish to avoid upsetting their natural balances by avoiding parabens. Finally, Red 33 gives the product a light pink color, to match your mental image of peppermint.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Spot On's consistency is reminiscent of Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment---the closest description would be a light cream. It dispenses easily in pea-sized amounts from its flip-top tube. It then absorbs or rubs away easily---when tested on my inner wrist, it absorbed completely, leaving no residue, in under a minute. No residue remains on the finger you apply it with, either. Luckily, while the cream absorbs naturally into the skin, the stimulating effect of peppermint oil remains quite present in the mucus membrane of the vagina and g-spot for some hours after application.

Taste / Aroma

Spot On is marketed as being tasteless and odorless, and while you can't smell it from a few inches away, the cream does include peppermint oil, so it is neither odorless nor tasteless. The scent is light and creamy with a hint of peppermint, and not at all medicinal. The taste, on the other hand, was lightly minty but slightly medicinal. It tastes similar to licking your lips after you've applied medicated lip ointment, but Spot On does not have the bitter aftertaste that lip balm does.

Fortunately, the scent is light enough and natural enough to not excite any of my fragrance sensitivities. Also, while the taste is present, it should not interfere with oral sex. For one, the cream stays generally where it was applied, and even if some met your tongue, the taste won't make you cringe.

Spot On stimulates the g-spot (and all other mucus membranes it comes into contact with, such as the vaginal walls and labia minora) quite successfully. The sensation is somewhere between tingling, cooling, awake, and aware. I was very grateful that it neither burned nor stung my body.

While the cream that is the peppermint oil's vehicle absorbs very quickly after application, the stimulation of the peppermint itself continues for several hours. The full effect, for me, lasted about two hours, and I still felt heightened stimulation for 5 total hours after use. Fans of marathon sessions will be pleased by Spot On's longevity, but those of us who like to move on with our day may be distracted by the long-lasting sensation.

Doc Johnson packages Spot On in a minimal, mint green cardboard box. The box holds a 2 ounce plastic flip-top tube of the cream. The tube is the sort which sits on its cap, and given that the mint green label proudly proclaims its function as a "G-SPOT STIMULATING GEL," it would be best to store this in a cabinet where your guests don't usually peep.

The opening in the lid makes it easy to dispense a pea-sized amount of cream without making a mess of you or of the tube.


I enjoyed Spot On much more than I expected to. For clarity's sake---I already know where my g-spot is, and I'm capable of g-spot orgasms, so I wasn't asking this product to aid me on a quest. I just wondered how "stimulating products" felt. I generally avoid products with glycerine because I was prone to yeast infections when I was younger, but I was curious about what "stimulating" products actually did, so I took the risk and am actually quite pleased with the results. I did test Spot On on the inside of my wrist to check for any reaction before applying it internally.

Following the instructions on the tube, I "applied a small amount to index finger and rubbed around the vaginal cavity," but my first "small amount" only made it as far as the labia. Almost immediately, I felt sensation---it's hard to describe, as it wasn't quite "tingling," but also wasn't "cooling." The nerve endings were definitely woken up, and I was surprised to find that it felt rather good, and didn't burn at all. Heartened, I spread my labia with my other hand, and this time was successful in "rubbing around the vaginal cavity." The same cooling/tingling/very awake and aware sensation graced my vaginal walls. I felt like my PC muscles tightened up a bit as a response to the cream, and though I was using just one finger I felt tighter around that finger than I usually do.

My greatest curiosity about Spot On was whether my g-spot would react differently to it than the rest of my vagina did---in other words, if people who haven't found their g-spots yet might be able to apply the cream and then have better luck in picking out the sensation. The answer to that was no---my g-spot responded to the cream in the same aware/awake/tingling/cooling sensation as my walls and labia had. So, Spot On won't single out the g-spot---but it will stimulate it.

I went on to have a g-spot orgasm with just my finger, and then I grabbed my favorite g-spot tool (the VIP) and had a few more. I was puzzled by the fact that the presence of the cream seemed to reduce my natural lubrication a bit, but that didn't interfere with play because the cream served as a lubricant. I couldn't say whether or not I made it to orgasm faster than usual, because I'm usually quick to orgasm. They were very satisfying orgasms, though.

In the aftermath, I was a little dismayed by how long my vagina remained "stimulated." The peppermint feeling was strong for about two hours after application, and I still felt the residual edge from it five hours later. Longevity might be positive for some users, but for me it was the equivalent of making a pot of coffee to stay up to get work done, but then finishing the work earlier than you expected, and wanting to fall asleep but having to sit in bed and wait for three extra hours while the caffeine wears off. The other slightly negative after-effect was the VIP looked creamy and strange after the experiment, though the cream would probably absorb into a human partner. Finally, I haven't gotten a yeast infection, so either my vagina's toughened up over the years, or Spot On is not a very strong yeast infection catalyst.

On the whole, Spot On performed much better than I had expected it to. I won't be using it for everyday play (my g-spot is already quite sensitive), but I might use it during times of the month I know the cream will be flushed out more rapidly than 5 hours after use.

    Bummer on the glycols, glycerine and paraben, we might have tried this. Still, it was a fun review and having had various chemical burns, I appreciate your experimentation. I like the coffee analogy and am surprised the taste wasn't worse. I remember my disappointment many years ago when I found that peppermint essential oil (not cooking extract) had an oral taste of...oil. Bleah. It was great when the fumes made it through my sinuses, but orally, ick.

    I'm allergic to parabens, so I'm going to have to pass. The long lastingness (yup, I totally just made a word up) of this could have been fun to experiment with, especially given that one of my lovers is known for 4+ hour marathon sessions.

    Thanks for another awesome review, darlin'!
  • Antipova
    Glad you guys liked it! This was my first descriptive review, so it felt a little strange to step back, use the long form, and be so objective again! I was surprised overall that it didn't burn or give me a yeast infection, but pretty glad too.

    This is an amazing review! I have this too. Mine tasted AWFUL though. Like, made me gag awful. I'm glad yours wasn't as bad. Mine also only lasted about 30 minutes. Still good, but you got hours! I'm jealous!

    Thanks for the ingredient breakdown. I never know what any of that junk is.
  • sktb0007
    I definitely need to try this now!!! Thank you so much!

    the Mrs.'s likes warming not cooling, good info, ty for the review
  • Tuesday
    Do other arousal creams with peppermint work for you too? I ask because for me I just feel mild cooling and nothing else from arousal products that rely on peppermint or menthol. So I'm wondering if this one has something in addition to peppermint that might make it work for me.
  • Tuesday
    Great job on this review BTW.
  • Antipova
    Thanks everyone! I was really surprised at how well this seemed to work---I expected it either to burn or do nothing at all. Instead is was very pleasant and long-lasting.

    Strange, Stainedclear---I wonder why we reacted so differently! At the first meeting of tongue and wrist I actually thought it tasted like a candycane (although it got a little 'medicated' tasting after first blush). And mine was definitely long-lasting! I'd almost trade you I was hyper-sensitive all day!

    The ingredients breakdowns are fun and useful for me too---helps flesh out my knowledge to do the research, because I sure don't know everything that can wind up used in cosmetics!

    Tuesday, this is actually my first arousal cream of any type, so I can't really say if it's usual or unusual for them to work for me. I wouldn't really call it "arousal," (to me that's more of a mental sensation?) but it definitely was stimulating beyond just being cooling. It did heighten the sensation when my hand/dildo came into contact with the treated area. The extra tightening was something I hadn't expected, as well.

    I don't know---I'm assuming this is low cost, so it's probably worth a try? I'm actually going to do further experiments, but I'm going to spread them over a few days so I don't push my yeast infection luck. I'll let you know if new results turn up!

    Glycerin is already like a huge "STOP" sign for me, but when I've read that this gel destroys condoms... oh, no, thanks. Condoms are the only type of contraception we're using due to my health issues, so there's no place for Spot-on in my life.
    Great review and thanks for all the details! I'm also very happy that you were fortunate not to get yeast infection from this thing.
  • Antipova
    Yeah, for a majority of people I think something like this is better used with a dildo than with a partner---condoms are very important! I felt lucky not to get a yeast infection, too. And hey, I learned a lot!
