It Gave Me The Sniffles!

While the product appears to be promising due to the fact that it is, silicone-based, has a mint taste and smell, and is supposed to provide added stimulation via a tingling sensation, the product is better in theory than it is in practice. The mint smell is not only overwhelming, but can cause your nose to run due to the menthol in the product. The "tingling sensation" might translate to "burning sensation' for those people that have sensitive skin.
Silicone-based, so doesn't get sticky or tacky. Pleasant mint taste. Makes a great massage lotion.
Can burn people with sensitive skin. Menthol may cause sinuses to run.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
I have always refused to try warming lube. Something about it just never seemed right to me. I consider burning in my genitals a bad thing. Like, if I begin to experience a burning feeling in my vajayjay, either a) someone touched me after eating spicy food, or b) I should go to a doctor and get checked out. Naturally, this made me decide to try the opposite of warming lube: Durex Tingling Lubricant. Since I wouldn't try warming, I figured I would try tingling.

It seemed like it might be okay. It is silicone-based (never a bad thing!) and therefore glycerin-free (unlike many warming lubes which tend to contain glycerin and get sticky). It contains menthol, hence the tingling sensation. Silicone-based lube is great for those that want a long-lasting, super slick lubricant that won't dry up. A little bit goes a very long way, and silicone-based lube won't get sticky or tacky. You will, however, have to wash it off, but a baby wipe should take care of that pretty easily.

Because the silicone molecules of the lubricant are larger than the pores of the skin, they skate along the surface, never getting absorbed into the skin, and therefore never drying up. This makes it great for sex in water, as well. Silicone-based lube also contains no glycerin, which as a form of sugar, can feed yeast and lead to yeast infections in women that are prone to them. Normally I would say that silicone-based lubricants are great for people with sensitive skin, but because this one contains menthol, it may irritate or burn those that are overly sensitive.

However, in practice, this stuff sucked. First of all, it smelled like mint. Hardcore. Which wouldn't necessarily be a *bad* thing if the smell hadn't been so overwhelming. I felt like I was lubing up with toothpaste. It tasted like mint, as well, which was pleasant enough. The smell or the menthol or something cleared my sinuses, and both me and my partner ended up with runny noses.

We could not stop sniffling during sex! It totally killed the mood! It was like Vick's Vaporub or something. Constant sniffling during sex? Not hot. Also, the lube removed my nail polish AND paint from one of my toys. Um, what is this shit? Paint thinner? I don't want anything that removes paint near my vagina.

I have also heard from numerous people that it burns very badly if you have sensitive skin. So, if you ever get the urge to try tingling lube, I do not recommend it. It might, however, make a good massage lotion if you don't mind a little bit of sniffling! Because silicone-based lube doesn't dry up and has the feel and consistency of baby oil, it's GREAT for massage! This product might be best used that way, as opposed to as a sexual lubricant.
Follow-up commentary
I hated this lube the first time I used it, and it sat at the bottom of my toy drawer (in a Ziploc bag) for a few months. Until I noticed a horridly strong mint smell all over everything I pulled from the box. Yes, the bottle had leaked everywhere, and everything smelled like mint. And the smell would not (and did not completely) go away. I decided to give it one more shot, since I had it out, and I still did not like it. It was like the mintiest lube ever, except you had to jump in the shower right afterward, because it's silicone-based and needed to be washed off. And it still made my nose run.

Again, *maybe* buy this as a massage lotion, but I really don't recommend it as a lubricant.
