Valentine's Day Disappointment

The tangerine Treasure Trove Gift Tin was a major disappointment. The contents were lackluster and left a lot to be desired. Instead of enhancing the mood, each new product we tried seemed to destroy it resulting in a night full of stop-and-go action.
Feather Duster. Pretty tin.
Every product either had an awful taste or a strange consistency.

extremely useful review
The Treasure Trove was our decided Valentine's gift to one another. I'm not crazy about strawberry and he's not crazy about raspberry so we settled on the tangerine.

Everything arrived packaged in a rather lovely, Indian inspired circular tin. Unfortunately, upon visual inspection, I noticed that there was a dent in the side of the canister (it popped out with hard pressing). I opened the tin up hoping everything was fine and I saw that the plastic seal around the cork on the oil had cracked and there was oil all over the interior contents. The bottle was still roughly 3/4 full so it wasn't an issue as we only intended to use the products that one night.

Despite the little dampers, everything smelt beautifully intoxicating. The scent of orange, citrus, and musk wafted out and filled the room as if we had been transported to a Moroccan market. As I pulled the products out I was pleased at the size of the honey dust, there was a lot more than I had expected. The Pleasure Balm was also larger than I had hoped! Unfortunately, the size of the oil was a disappointment. The bottle was rather small for my taste, of course I've been spoiled to large size items, but for the price I had truly hoped for more.

We started off with the Honey Dust. It was thin, very dusty, and tasted like chalk. If you've realized my reviewing style by now than you know that I love to rave about products, the "tangerine" flavored honey dust was absolutely nothing to rave about. When my husband opened up the little baggy inside of the pretty satin sack (the plastic bag is closed by a twist tie, like on a bag of bread), it puffed out everywhere! It went all over the sheets and right into his face. After a lot of laughing and slow kissing, we applied it to one another with the included feather teaser and attempted to lick it off. My tongue kept sticking to the roof of my mouth and I experienced a bit of "cotton mouth" because of how dry and chalky the powder was. My husband didn't seem to fare any better and begged for some relief, we immediately stopped what we were doing so that I could run downstairs to get a bottle of water, it halted the "passion" and upon my arrival there was some difficulty getting back into any sort of romantic moment.

My husband tried the Stimulating Gel, "Pleasure Balm", next as a way to entice me back into the sexy spirit of the Holiday. He applied the runny, orange liquid directly to my clitoris; I noticed a tingling upon application but after a few seconds it waned away, I wasn't sure what to expect but what I received was lackluster and disappointing. In my willingness to share I tried it on my husband's nipples, he said it was cold when I applied it and upon moving my mouth over them I realized it was. It didn't taste particular awfully, just a lot like the orange or citrus flavored toothpastes you can buy at the drug store. The "cold" sensation of the balm stayed on my tongue for about an hour afterward and thankfully, it neither numbed nor tingled for the duration.

Last but not least was the Tangerine Oil, the biggest disappointment of all. It tasted like warm, candy flavored grease. In my opinion, the initial taste wasn't too bad, albeit nothing like tangerines and cream, but the warm, greasy, syrupy consistency was truly awful- and the fact it had such a strong aftertaste was enough to make my husband gag. (Kama Sutra's website recommends for customers to blow on the oil to release its "gentle warming power".) To make the night even less romantically charged, it left our skin feeling sticky as opposed to silky, and any and all lint on the sheets immediately stuck to us after we gave one another massages. We actually went into the shower to finish the night because we had become little lint traps. Trust me, there was nothing I wanted more than to lay down on my big bed and make love to my husband, getting rammed up against the shower wall instead was not the night I had envisioned for myself.

Overall, I was tremendously disappointed with the Treasure Trove Gift Tin. I'm a woman that loves massage products and slow, long lasting love-making but I found fault with almost every item (the one thing I did love was the little feather duster) packaged inside. I can't foresee myself trying any more Kama Sutra products in the near future as nothing in this tin was up to par to my standards, which surprisingly, I try to keep relatively low.
