Durex Play Sting- I mean Tingling....

While this may be a fine lube for those who are not prone to skin sensitivities, there are definitely better options available which are safer and more natural.
Good taste, easy to find, inexpensive.
Burning, strong enough to remove paint, better options out there, leaky packaging.

useful review
I, like so many people, was fairly excited to try this lubricant. I generally, really enjoy the cooling sensation associated with menthol. That being said, while I have found some ways to enjoy the use of this lube, I will seldom if ever use it vaginally. Even though I've not personally experienced the burn that many other victims of this product have, the fact that this lube has the ability to remove some paints from toys is enough to make me think twice before spreading this all over my delicate pussy.

As mentioned in many of the other reviews here, this product will most likely cause a burning sensation if not properly shaken before use. While it does state this in bold, on the back of the bottle, it may be easy to forget to do this, as most lubricants do not require shaking before use. Even after being shaken there is still a hefty amount of menthol used in this product, so if your skin tends to be on the more sensitive side or prone to irritation, I would highly recommend exploring different options before settling on this particular lube.

Now that I've mentioned the "Shake Well" part, I will take this time to comment upon the packaging flaws. The bottle doesn't have a secure lid at all; rather it has a small pump top. This allows the lube to leak out of the bottle if it isn't sitting upright. A small amount also tends to fly out of the top when you go to shake it.

If you have to keep this in a drawer lying down, expect it to ooze all over your things unless it's placed in a Ziploc baggie first. Not to mention that I suspect if the lube can leak out bacteria & other things could also get into the bottle, making this a less-than-sanitary design. I would have much preferred a flip top style lid or something similar.

However, while it does fail in many levels as a regular lubricant, it wasn't a complete waste of my money. It does make an okay massaging lubricant for tired, achy muscles. I particularly like the way it feels on my very tense neck and lower back. It also has made for some very fun nipple play - the cool tingle that comes with being licked and gently blown on can be thrilling, not to mention the minty taste which is quite pleasant.

Although, once again, there are better products out there made specifically for massages. I still wonder how good it is to put this on my body at all, or ingest it for that matter, since it apparently doubles as a paint remover on some toys. After all, what you put on your skin does seep into your blood stream to a certain degree, (all the more reason to take a look at natural lubrication products).

Overall, I would not purchase this lubricant ever again, nor would I recommend it to anyone I particularly like. The simple fact of the matter is that there are better options out there that provide a cool tingle without the high chance for subsequent burning sensations. Try taking a look at Kama Sutra's Cooling Gel, which has received much better reviews and offers a similar tingling sensation.

    Great review! I'll remember to stay away from this product. Both I and my boyfriend have sensitive skin.

    Thanks for the sensitive skin warning! I'm ridiculously sensitive, and have to be very careful about what I put down there. Too bad this has so many design flaws.
  • ~*SurrealisticFantasy*~
    Thanks everybody, I hope to be doing a much more positive review of the similar Kama Sutra Cooling Gel in the near future. I suspect it might be a little more friendly to the "sensitive skin" group.

    Nice review...I'm not hearing good things about this product...
  • Snappy
    Sounds like it's the Altoids of cooling gels.

    Thanks Mamastoys!
    Snappy - That's hilarious! I hadn't thought of it that way but that's an excellent way of describing it.
  • Adriana Ravenlust
    Does it smell minty at all? I want to try cooling products but HATE mint. LOL

    -makes a note that if you suggest this product to me, you're trying to kill me-
  • ~*SurrealisticFantasy*~
    Hahaha, yes, it does indeed smell minty, and while not COMPLETELY overpowering it's definitely there.
