Years ago (when I worked in a brick and mortar adult novelty shop) there was a line of premium all natural massage oils that I loved!
I tried to sell them to everyone as I was convinced they were amazing – not only were they luxuriously packaged, easy to use, left you feeling soft and supple rather than oily or greasy and very affordably priced, but more importantly they were well made, derived from all natural ingredients and smelled amazing.
Now, 4 years later, I’m extremely excited to finally bring a newer line of products from the same brand to all of you.
The brand of products I’m speaking of is Wickedly Sensual (created by Exciting Products) - a Canadian manufacturer focused on creating affordable, premium, all natural products that taste/smell amazing and feel great.
With that in mind I want to send out a very, very big thank you to the folks at the company for sending 12 of their new products my way – 9 (every flavor!) from the Flavored Heating Massage Potion line and 4 (again, every flavor!) from their line of Heating Massage/Lubricant 2 in 1′s (available exclusively through Shoppers Drug Mart).
To say I’m a happy camper is a big under statement – I’m ecstatic!
For today’s review I’ll be covering the Flavored Heating Massage Potions as they are the ones I’ve had the most fun with…so far.
If there is one thing I can say about the packaging it’s that it’s extremely high end looking. The box is metallic silver, shaded with a hint of the color that corresponds with the flavor it’s associated with; raspberry is a light fuchsia, chocolate is light brown, tangerine is light orange and so forth.
There is nothing on the packaging that’s rude, crude or embarrassing. In fact, I personally think it’s quite the opposite. The packaging looks like something you’d find in a high end boutique catering to rich women who want the best skin creams, lotions and potions, rather than something you’d associate with sexuality or buy in an adult novelty store.
As for the containers, again they are reminiscent of a high end bottle of lotion or skin cream rather than something used to bring excitement between the sheets; each bottle is crafted from a heavy plastic container (looks like glass) and filled to the brim with your favorite flavor. There’s nothing on the bottle to hint it’s something sexual – except for the cute little bat winged heart with the letter “W” in the center, a small clue that it might be meant for something naughty.
I’ll admit, one of the things I love about the bottle is the pump dispenser. Sure it may not seem like that big of a deal but considering the amount of products on the market with faulty lids, screw tops or open holes for dispensing (all of which limit the amount of control you have) this type of product seems like an innovation – no worries of spilling, accidental leakage or messes to clean up and definitely no worries about pouring out a lot when you only want a little. To me, less waste and more control is always a good thing.
When it came to the “potion” (i.e. the liquid in the bottle) I was extremely excited to see that the level of quality remained the same as the previous products I had come to love; it’s not sticky, thick, slimy, gel like or tacky, doesn’t leave you feeling oily or greasy, goes on smooth, has no aftertaste, is light, gently warms when rubbed or blown and definitely leaves your skin feeling soft and supple – not to mention wonderfully but lightly scented. More importantly, all the potions are hypo-allergenic, non staining, all natural (I’ll get to that in a minute) and latex safe!
*if you happen to get some left over on your hands then touch a latex condom, dental dam or female condom you don’t have to worry about possibly damaging it like you would with most other massage products/oils.
As for the flavors, I’m going to give two sides (mine and my partners) for one simple reason; when it comes to flavors or scents I think it’s good to have more than one opinion. Especially since scent/flavor is sometimes different to everyone.
*all of the potions are translucent with a hint of color – they’re non staining so the color is nothing to worry about. (To test them I put some on a white pillow case that was going in the wash just to see what would happen. Surprisingly, the marks actually washed out – clearly staying true to being non staining)
Whip My Cream/Vanilla (light yellow):
To me this didn’t taste or smell like vanilla. Not in a bad way, quite the contrary actually – it tasted better! If you’ve ever had a toasted marshmallow straight from the fire, still warm and ready to melt in your mouth well that would describe this to a T. To my partner this tasted like a caramel or butterscotch sundae topping, not too sweet or syrupy, just sweet enough. (This is definitely one of my personal faves!)
Kiss My Raspberry (light fuchsia/purple):
Both of us agreed on this one – it tasted like a sweet but tart “blue raspberry” Jolly Rancher candy. The taste was a little heavy but didn’t linger on the tongue which was nice. It wasn’t too sweet nor too tart, instead having a nice balance between the two. If you want to see what the flavor is like before buying just pick up a pack of Jolly Rancher candies and try it…I can guarantee you’ll be buying the potion once you do! (another fave of mine!!)
Pop My Bubblegum (light pink):
I’ll admit, I’ve never ever been a fan of bubblegum flavored anything. I don’t know why, it just always seemed to make me nauseated. Unfortunately for me (and my partner) this tasted exactly like bubblegum – not a necessarily a bad thing, especially for those of you that love the taste. In fact, if you like that kind of thing you’ll absolutely love this!
Spank My Mango (light greenish yellow):
When I first tasted it I didn’t get hit with mango per sé, instead I got fruity, sweet, slightly tart, rich and juicy. Then after tasting it a few more times I could really taste the flavor of a mango just before it’s fully ripe. As for my partner he said it tasted like “fruity candy” when asked what kind he said “the good kind”. I’ll take that to mean that he liked it.
Bang My Cherry (red):
Before tasting it I expected what you get from most Cherry flavored lotions – the familiar cough syrup flavor. Fortunately this tastes nothing like cough syrup; it’s light, sweet, a little tart, not at all syrupy, has no after taste and has a cherry candy taste. My partner said it tasted like “red Cool-aid” being that he loves the stuff I’ll again take it as a “like”.
Melt My Chocolate (almost translucent):
It smells like a cup of Hot Chocolate and tastes even better! It’s not too sweet or syrupy, instead tasting like a delectable chocolate topping you’d put on ice cream – without the heavy after taste or richness that can sometimes burn that back of your throat. It’s light, almost creamy, has a hint of hazelnut (to me anyways) and is definitely yummy. When I gave it to my partner he said it was “like a creamy, tasty ice cream sundae”, then asked if we could make martini’s with it. We tried, they tasted amazing!! (Our mutual fave!!)
Squeeze My Tangerine (light orange):
Next to the Bubblegum flavor this was my least favorite. It’s a little syrupy, kinda thick, slightly rich and tasted nothing like tangerines. If you’ve ever been to The Body Shop and smelled their Satsuma (Orange Pop) scented oil/soaps this is what the products would taste like if they were flavors. That said, it’s my fave scent for essential oil/perfume/home spray, so I loved the way the it smelled. My partner didn’t really like the way it tasted either, he said it tasted “like an orange cough candy that’s really trying to be orange” – I have no clue what that means.
Suck My Candy (light blue):
To be honest I’m not exactly sure what they were going for with this flavor, tasty candy floss? sugary sweet jelly bean? syrupy and rich cream soda? old fashioned mouth watering hard candy? Either way the product tasted like all of the above to me, while also tasting a bit like a white Mr.Freeze (which is supposed to be cream soda). As for my partner he said “at first it tastes like Werther’s Originals, then I get toffee, then I get cream soda. I’m not sure what they’re going for but either way it’s sweet and sugary. I like it, but in small doses”. (In small doses one of my faves too!)
Pluck My Strawberry (light red):
Again, both of us got the flavor of Jolly Ranchers with this one. That said, it’s kind of a mix between watermelon (because it’s really juicy and mouth watering) and strawberry (light, fruity, sweet, delicate). The scent of this one is light, almost non existent – definitely not heavy, rich or syrupy, instead just a hint of candied berries. Like the Raspberry flavor, if you want to try before you buy just grab a pack of Jolly Rancher candies and pop a watermelon and strawberry one in your mouth at the same time. If you love the flavor, you’ll love this!!
Like I said earlier, the ingredients in the product are all natural and therefor shouldn’t do any harm. More importantly they’re safe to ingest and fortunately not full of chemicals like a lot of other flavored products on the market.
*if you’re someone who is prone to yeast infections I wouldn’t suggest these as a vaginal lube, just an amazing massage potion – which is what they are intended for anyways. That said, they are amazing for oral sex (blow jobs) and are completely latex safe (so you can perform a b.j. with a condom and not worry you’ll ruin it)
In regard to things I didn’t like about the product, there really weren’t any. Sure it’s not something I would suggest as a lube, but then it’s a Massage Potion so I can’t really expect that from it.
On that note, when it comes to massaging I suggest that you don’t expect the same results you’d get from an oil – something that would make the surface area slick and easy to rub. Instead, these allow the hands to move over the area being massaged with ease, while slowly being absorbed by the skin as you rub. Sooner than later you’ll notice the product has completely disappeared and need to apply more – fortunately a little goes a long way, and with the pump dispensing a measured amount you never have to worry about using too much or going overboard.
*Since I have a serious “love on” for the product I thought I’d ask my partner what he thought just in case I missed something, this is what I got:
“Honestly, I like it more than I thought I would. They all – except for those two (Bubblegum/Tangerine) – taste amazing, they feel good and they don’t get sticky. You know me, I hate having lotion and sh*t on my body, it makes me feel gross and greasy, but this stuff wasn’t that bad. I actually didn’t even feel any residue. That’s a good thing right? Well, I think it is. Anyways, if you brought this home and pulled it out of that damn box of toys you have I wouldn’t freak out or say no, I’d probably welcome it. I think most people would feel like that, especially since it looks like it’s really expensive when it’s really not. It’s like an affordable luxury product – you can quote me on that.”
To say I love the products is an understatement – I pretty much think they are amazing!
If you’re looking for a massage lotion/potion that doesn’t get sticky or tacky, definitely doesn’t leave you feeling greasy, slimy, oily or covered in goop, tastes amazing, is lightly scented so it’s not over powering, doesn’t stain, is hypo- allergenic, latex safe, affordable (only $18.35 for 100ml) and beautifully packaged then definitely try the Wickedly Sensual Flavored Heating Massage Potions. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
