Finally! A cooling gel that matches up to my old one! And discontinued again...

Purchasing V Cooling Gel was a great decision. Although I usually don't have trouble orgasming, when I do occasionally have trouble or we want to speed up the process, cooling gels always help me get there faster. However, a lot of them are not quality or don't work at all. When my favorite was discontinued, I tried V Cooling Gel, and it has worked great! It is long lasting and is the perfect amount of cooling.
cooling works well, not subtle but not burny, long lasting, thick, good bottle, paraben free
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I've become convinced that no one wants me to orgasm except me and my partner! Whenever I get a little frustrated because it's taking too long, we'd use some KY tingling gel and BAM orgasm. Then, it got discontinued. I tried 3 other cooling and tingling gels of this type, and none of them were useful. Then, I tried V Cooling Gel. Awesome! Then, I logged on to do the review and...discontinued. Well. That sucks. Luckily, we still have plenty of it left, and I've been weening myself off of it and trying to find other BAM orgasm solutions.

V Cooling Gel is a clear, thick gel on par with Maximus and other gel lubricants. It has a bit of a cooling/tingling effect that starts working immediately when rubbed onto the clitoris. It lasts for quite a while, at least 20 minutes, but I rarely need it for that long before I have at least one orgasm.

V Cooling Gel is water based, so it is safe to use with any material. It is paraben free, but contains vegetable glycerin and menthol. I have not noticed any problems, but others should be conscious of this if they are sensitive to either ingredient. It is made in the USA. It comes in a 5 ounce bottle that is the type that constantly sits upside down. Good for when there's none left, but bad if it leaks. Luckily, we haven't noticed this leaking at all.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of this is really slick and never gets clumpy, greasy, or otherwise unpleasant. It is pretty thick, since it is a gel, and you don't need to use much at all (pea sized drop) to get it to work. It is easy to pour out of the bottle and stays in place well. It doesn't drip down onto the bed like some really thick lubricants do.

Taste / Aroma

There is a very light peppermint smell. It doesn't smell like toothpaste. I can't really explain it, but it definitely is NOT toothpastey like some cooling gels. I didn't taste it because of its special features. I don't want tingly tongue.

V Cooling Gel lasts quite a while, but I didn't need it to last long before it started working. Usually within 5-10 minutes of using this product I have at least one orgasm. It takes a while to clean up, but I usually just wipe it off with toilet paper when I get up after sex to pee. It doesn't take any longer than any other lubricant. If the cooling bothers you once you finish sex, you can also wash it off with water and it immediately stops.

My partner and I were so excited when we found this to replace the KY tingling gel and now it has also been discontinued. So sad! Hopefully the company is still making it though so we can buy it elsewhere. It works really great and is our go-to solution to orgasm troubles.

Immediately upon applying this, it starts with a cool tingly feeling almost as if someone with pepperminty breath is ever so slightly blowing on my clit.

The lubricant just came thrown in the box without a bag or anything. Its package is exactly as pictured. It is clear, so you can tell how much is left. It always sits with the opening flat at the bottom of the bottle, so it comes out easily without having to shake it or anything even when there's very little left. The bottle doesn't leak, but sometimes more comes out than you want just because of the way the bottle is. It doesn't scream "this is used for sex" but it also in my opinion is obvious. If I saw it, I would assume it was lube. Would a conservative parent? Probably not right away, but upon a closer look it is pretty obvious when reading it. But from across a room, it's not really noticeable.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Does not leak

Special Features

V Cooling Gel is a cooling gel, so it gives a cooling sensation on the area where it is rubbed. I don't recommend internal use, but on the clit it feels great! My partner doesn't like anything cold on his penis so I can't say much from that perspective though.

We've had a great experience with this lubricant. We have been using it for a few months now and it works great. I started this review about a week after getting it, but then got very busy and had to disappear from Eden for a couple of months. However, I still had time to use the V Cooling Gel, and it has been an excellent addition to our sex, especially with the discontinuation of the KY tingling gel we previously were obsessed with.
