My first thought upon opening the package and smelling this lube was about the blue, mentholated aloe vera gel for severe sunburns, but that's because I used to go to the beach without sunscreen and find myself lying naked on top of the sheets all night, completely coated in that awful stuff from neck to toe in my young and dumb days. Icy Hot is a more commonly known, accurate comparison for the scent though lol.
I was pleasantly surprised that my sensitive cupcake was not set ablaze by an arousal product. Though I will admit, as I sat on my bed post-sexcapade, she, my cupcake that is, was feeling a little uncomfortable. We used this product first during foreplay for an intimate massage and then for vaginal intercourse. I couldn't tell that anything was happening as far as sensation goes...until after. I wiped the product away right after use, but what I couldn't wipe away felt like Icy Hot had been applied...except it didn't feel good. The effects eventually wore off as I slept and I woke up back to normal.
As far as the texture and consistency, it is moderately slick and gel-like. Here was a surprise for me: my husband liked the viscosity of this lube. Our favorite lubes have been the ones that are very thin, but he actually liked the thicker, gel-like nature of this lube. He did say though that he didn't like the stickiness and I agree...it is pretty darn sticky after a few seconds of friction. As he put it, "that only mattered for the outside; inside, it felt great." So I suppose it loses moisture fairly quickly and what's left are the sticky/tacky ingredients. Note to self: find an amazing, gel-like lube!
While this product may work for some, it is not for me. Maybe I'm doing this whole arousal product thing wrong since I have been unable to use them in the past due to horrifying flesh infernos, but I'm pretty sure they aren't supposed to feel uncomfortable. Onto the next one!
