Mood Ruining - Not Very Arousing Gels

After using this product a few times, I am disappointed with most of its attributes. I hated the flavors, the sensation, the time it takes for the sensation to wear off, and the itch and burn if you don't wash it off right away. Everything I hate about this product is what makes arousal gels work; so I feel that these just fell short of their duties. If you want an arousal gel keep looking, end of story.
Silky, Moisturizing, Long Lasting Lubrication.
Chemical Taste, Little To No Sensation, Reapplication For More Sensation, Itchy and Burning

extremely useful review


Doc Johnson has made a line of arousal gels that come in a 3 pack. Each one has a separate color, sensation, and flavor. The green one is tingling with a mint taste, the red one is warming with a strawberry flavor, and the blue one is to intensify with a kissable spice or cinnamon flavor. I think the best use for this product is for vaginal, oral, and anal sex as a water-based lube, because other than that there was nothing good about this product. I had high hopes for this product and it completely fell short.

I used it on my hand at first and there was a very faint sensation from the tingling and the intensify, but the warming was a dud. So I figured whatever, maybe it will feel good on my clit. Wrong. It was still very faint, nearly non-existent. Maybe it will depend on the individual, but I was disappointed. The flavors aren't the greatest, but strawberry is the absolute worst (out of strawberry, spice/cinnamon, and mint); I wanted to vomit. They did taste like the flavor described but they tasted very chemical like with a bad aftertaste. If you read the ingredients, they're all chemicals and I can hardly pronounce many of the ingredient names.

Strawberry (warm): Glycerin, flavor (aroma) Red 40 (CI 16035)

Mint (tingle): Water (aqua), propanediol, hydroxyethylcellulose, menta piperita (peppermint) oil, polyquaternium-7, menthyl ethylamido oxalate, sucralose, colloidal silver, blue 1 (Ci 42090), Yellow 5 (CI 19140)

Cinnamon (intensify): Water (aqua), propanediol, hydroxyethylcellulose, zingiber officinale (ginger) root extract, theobroma cacao (cocoa) extract, piper nigrum (pepper) resin, cinnamonum cassia resin, capsicum frutescens resin, capsicum annuum resin, butylene glycol, polysorbate 20, sucralose, colloidal silver, blue 1 (42090)

I found that it made me itchy and it burned a little bit. I don't know if that had something to do with the fact that there was glycerin in it or something else that is harmful for sensitive skin. I also didn't understand why there was an expiration date on it, but you have 2 years to use these once they are opened.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of these is pretty nice, I must say. The mood arousal gels are very silky and slippery. It doesn't run down your arm when applied with your finger, However it will spill out of the container if you pour it. I liked that it didn't leave any sticky or greasy after effects. My skin actually felt more moisturized and soft after use. The gel was also very easy to wash off with just a little water.

    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

The first time you open these, the smell of strawberry, mint, and light cinnamon will make you fall in love. After you apply it to your skin, you will still love its silky, slick feel. Then if you decide to do oral and lick these, you will want to throw them in the trash. The smell is amazing, very strong and sweet. They all smell like candy. The cinnamon is light and sweet at first then once you let it sit in your mouth it gets hot and spicy. The strawberry tasted sweet and fruity for the first millisecond, after that it was pure chemical taste. I would have rather licked rubbing alcohol or bleach. The mint was probably my slight favorite out to the group. It is sweet, minty, and cool with the least amount of chemical taste. After you wipe if off with a dry towel you may still smell this on your skin. I would recommend soap and water or a shower to completely rid your skin of the smell.


About 5 mins of oral after he applied it to my clitoris and all sensation (if any) had dissipated. He had to reapply, but it stayed slick even after the sensation wore off. I would definitely recommend washing it off because it started to itch and burn a little bit, which can get really uncomfortable and could probably cause an infection. I liked the texture and feel of these products and the taste of the mint gel, but hated everything else.
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water
    • Reapply often


Each flavor/sensation combination comes in its own 2 ounce plastic circular container with a twist on lid. They are all 2 7/8" diameter and 1 1/2" deep. Once you open the twist on lid, there is an inside cap with a pull tab to keep the product fresher and everything from spilling out. The outside of the container says the name of the product, 'Mood arousal gels', and the sensation and flavor on it. The only reason I would say this is not a very discreet package is because it says 'orgasm' on the top of the lid, which is pretty noticeable. There are no directions/instructions with this product. There is, however, a small luring description about the sensation and aroma making you aroused. Once you have used all of the gel the packaging is recyclable.

    Thanks very much for the detailed review! If there's one thing I can't stand, it's when flavored things taste lick chemicals.
