Enchant Me Eyelash Robe

enchant me eyelash robeThe Lovehoney Enchant Me Eyelash Robe came packaged in a clear plastic bag, inside a plain brown padded envelope. This very discreet outer packaging is exactly what I have come to expect from Lovehoney, however it would have been nice to have had the option for the robe to be boxed, if it was for a gift.

On opening it I was disappointed to find the material felt a little bit rough, or maybe scratchy is a better description. I gave it a hand-wash in the sink with some fabric conditioner, and it softened beautifully. Leaving me with a lovely silky feeling robe.

The Lovehoney Enchant Me Eyelash Robe has a pretty scalloped lace edging on the hem, sleeves, and sides which looks really nice, and gives it a more classic look. It has small loops on either side to hold the belt in place, and the belt sits nicely on the hips when it’s tied.Enchant Me Eyelash Robe

I really liked how sheer this was; I’ve had items before that were either too sheer, or not sheer enough. This item manages to get the balance spot on. You could see the outline of my underwear, and my figure but it hid all the lumps and bumps I am paranoid about. I’m 5’4″ and this came to roughly mid-thigh on me, which is quite a comfortable length.

I loved how sexy the Lovehoney Enchant Me Eyelash Robe looked thrown on over underwear. Wearing it actually helped me feel more sexy.  Due to current circumstances (I live in a shared house) I probably wouldn’t wear this anywhere except the bedroom but for those who live alone, or with just their partner/s it would be great to slip on for post sex fridge raiding.

I only have one real complaint with this item, and it is more for other people than for myself. I just wasn’t convinced by  the sizing. I received the ‘Queen Size’ version of this robe which supposedly fits sizes 18-24. I’m a size 18 and this just fit around me, with maybe 2 inches of overlap if it was pulled tight. Therefore I’m really not sure how well it will fit on someone who is a size 24.

Overall

Apart from the possible sizing issue I think this is a great robe at a great price. The look and feel is sexy, stylish, and comfortable. I really liked this one.

Sensual Glass Textured Dildo from Lovehoney

Textured Glass Dildo

While I’ve always like the idea of the texture and finish of glass sex toys, I’d been hesitant about trying them. However, having read the fabulous Glass Sex Toys: A primer blog post from Dangerous Lilly I felt much more confident about giving them a go. I was browsing Lovehoney and noticed they had some of their glass toys on at half price so I dropped the Sensual Glass Textured Dildo into my basket with some other sale items.

Sensual Glass

Lovehoney states their glass dildos are made from toughened borosilicate glass. Which is hypo-allergenic, non-porous and easy to clean. It is also dishwasher safe, making it super easy to sterilise.

One of the things I loved about this was the fact that Lovehoney include a ‘velvet’ storage pouch, with this being a glass item it would have been nice for the pouch to be slightly padded but it is still a nice touch considering the price range.

I loved the shape and texture on this. I’m not much of a size queen and I found this was a perfect size for making me feel filled without being stretched. It was also slender enough that I didn’t need much ‘warming up’ before I could use it. The raised ‘swirl’ pattern felt really good when I was sliding it in and out. I also found because of the smooth finish of the glass a little lube went a long way. The only downside was that the bulbous handle is the same smooth finish, and after I’d been playing for a while I did find my hand slipped off a few times, spoiling my rhythm slightly.

I also found the raised swirl was great for rubbing over my clit and nipples; the ridges catching in just the right way. I haven’t purposely tried it for temperature play, because I prefer to do that with a partner but I did use it when it was accidentally cold. I’d left it on my window sill and because it was a cold day the glass of the dildo had become cold. I wasn’t really paying attention when I lubed it up but I definitely felt the coolness as I slid it inside. Wasn’t quite as much of a sensation as say an ice cube but I could still feel it.

Overall I really liked this dildo. It will stay in my bedside drawer, and be used regularly. I’d definitely consider getting more glass dildos, in different textures and sizes.

Product Review – Vanilla Kissable Massage Oil

Lovehoney Kissable Massage Oil – Vanilla

DSC00706

I’ve been trying to find a good ‘edible’ massage oil for a while……mostly out of laziness, it’s such a pain having to switch to another product when a massage turns sexy, or to put up with the horrible taste of normal massage oil when you give a blow job after. However, so many of the edible options out there either don’t work for a full body massage because they are just too sticky, or they taste terrible, or they’re full of all sorts of crazy chemicals. There are other edible massage products out there that I would still like to try but at least I now have a go to product.

I really did love this Kissable Massage Oil, which is probably not surprising given how much of a fan I am of Lovehoney‘s flavoured lubes. They seem to have the perfect balance when it comes to flavours. A hint without it being that sickly over powering flavour that can taste almost chemical.

This ‘kissable’ massage oil smells gorgeous; the vanilla scent is sweet and delicate, even when warmed the smell never gets over powering. When I opened the bottle and removed the leak-proof stopper, the aroma was pleasant, scenting the room without flooding it. I found the taste was even more subtle; with just a hint of vanilla flavouring the carrier oil blend. I’m not saying I’d drink this but the flavour is pleasant enough that it works really well when a massage gets extra sexy.  You do still get a slight underlying taste of oil but the vanilla masks it enough that it never gets too much.

This vanilla kissable massage oil comes in two sizes, and the smaller one is perfect for popping in your toiletry bag for sexy weekends away, however it does have a screw cap as opposed to the click cap on the larger bottle, which can make it difficult to refasten when you have the oil on your hands. Both size bottles do include a special little seal under the cap so you can travel without worrying about spillage, or so they can be stored horizontally. I thought this was a nice touch, as the large bottles are slightly too tall to be stored upright in my drawer.

I found the oil also lasted well; a small amount warmed in your hand was more than enough to do a full back massage. After doing two massages the bottle is still really, not even empty to the top of the label. I really liked that this massage product didn’t leave greasy or slimy feel like some massage products can, or a sticky residue like many lubes can. It left my skin feeling soft, silky, and nicely moisturised afterwards. As a combo product I was really impressed with this Vanilla kissable massage oil, it ticked both all the boxes as both a massage and lubrication product.

Technical information for those who like to know, it is paraben and glycerine free, suitable for vegans, and also has no artificial sweeteners. Finding a flavoured product that doesn’t include artificial sweeteners seems to be a bit of a holy grail.

Overall: I really liked this product. It will definitely have a permanent place in my lotions and potions. I can’t wait to try some of the other flavours.

Product Review – Tracey Cox Supersex Kegel Toner Set

DSC00644

 

I’ve really struggled writing this review of the Tracey Cox Supersex Kegel Toner Set, so many people have raved about this product and I wanted to love it but it just didn’t work for me.

It came in the usual discreet Lovehoney packaging and inside each ‘Toner’ was individually packaged in a box with lots of information and instructions for use. You also got a little white storage pouch for each which was really good.

The quality is excellent, and the materials are smooth and feel good in your hand. They also have a nice weight to them, not too heavy, so I think these would be a good starter set. They are a teardrop shape which I thought might be to make them easier to insert for newer users (other toners I have used were much more rounded).

The idea is to start with the single toner and work up to the double toner, and even though I have been using toners for about a year I wanted to start with the smaller one so I could try them out properly.

TC Ss Kegel toner

Once inserted the single ball was comfortable to wear and when moving about I could feel it gently ‘bumping’ away. My issue was with getting it in, for some reason this shape was just not working with my body. It actually left me feeling a bit sore and bruised, and completely confused as I have had things with more girth without a problem. I just could not get the angle right and inserting it was very painful (even inserting it when I was aroused hurt), but once it was in it was fine, and I did persevere.

I used these consistently every day for two weeks, and still got that pinch of pain inserting so I think the shape just does not work for me.

Then we come to removing it…….who on earth thought an ‘elastic’ retrieval cord (It’s not actually elastic just very stretchy silicone) was a good idea?? If your hand slips while pulling it out, it twangs back and hits you in a fairly uncomfortable place. I ended up having to reach inside with thumb and forefinger to pull it out by the base of the ball (much like removing a Mooncup).

On to the double toner, I found the joiner on this toner very flexible, so pushing the second ball in was that much harder. because it kept bending. and once in this was very uncomfy. However I think this is a length issue and not the toner itself, I think it is just too long (7 inches insertable length) for my body, and I couldn’t wear it comfortably for any length of time.

These won’t replace the kegel toner set I regularly use but that doesn’t mean they won’t work for you, and I do think kegel toners are a great idea. Even though I was fairly tight to begin with (years of yoga and doing my PC exercises), since using kegel toner balls I have noticed a difference; my orgasms are stronger and last longer, I am more likely to squirt, and am much less likely to ‘leak’ when I sneeze. I am also have much better control over my muscles during sex, meaning I can focus contractions to enhance the experience.

Product Review – JimmyJane Form 6

This was my first ‘luxury’ vibrator and I had quite high expectations. I was very prepared to love this item……and for the most part I really did.

DSC00637

The first thing you notice with any item is the packaging, this came in a fairly nondescript box; inside the box the Form 6 was supported by cheap moulded plastic, and the charging station and adapter were below it in a small cardboard box. I wasn’t blown away by the packaging and for an item of this level I would expect the box to be a bit nicer, something that could be used as storage, especially since Jimmyjane don’t provide any sort of storage pouch with this.

So what was in the box? The Form 6, a charging station, AC plug (with adapters for US, UK, EU and Aus), quick start guide. That’s it. It would have been nice, considering this is a luxury item, to get a storage pouch, but would have settled for a full instruction booklet. The quick start guide gives you a web address where you can download the user manual, however I would expect to have one included, especially as the quick start guide doesn’t even mention the travel lock, or explain how you know when the Form 6 is fully charged.

I loved that this came with adapters for charging in other countries, it’s a very nice touch. The quick start guide indicates it needs to charge for at least eight hours before first use, so I immediately plugged it in and waited impatiently for the allotted time. The light stays on throughout charging and doesn’t change so without lifting the Form 6 off it’s charging cradle you don’t know if it’s fully charged, apparently it blinks a certain number of times for different levels of charge (but the quick start guide doesn’t tell you this).

DSC00638DSC00640

The Form 6 has six different modes and five vibration strengths. Which is where it really sings. You can use either end on constant, both ends on constant (although on the higher strength this could make your hand a bit numb), and varying patterns on both ends. The big chunky end (which is almost triangular in shape) has quite a diffuse deep rumbling vibration, which feels great rested against your labia. You can really build a slow strong orgasm. The smaller end has more concentrated vibrations; great for direct clitoral stimulation or for angling while thrusting to hit your G-spot, I found the ‘curve’ felt more pronounced and took a bit of manoeuvring to ‘insert’ but once it was positioned I used a sort of rocking motion and hell-o knee shaking orgasms. And if you like to feel full the Form 6 has that covered too, the bigger end gives a lovely full feeling and having that end inserted with the vibrations on ripple or pulse is nothing short of amazing.

DSC00643

One thing that surprised me was how loud this is. I expected a luxury vibrator to be much quieter, not silent but quiet. The vibrations are quite strong so I guess the noise is to be expected but even under a duvet it is audible, so if you live in shared accommodation you might want to put music on.

Another thing I loved about the Form 6 was the fact that it is fully waterproof, apart from all the bath and shower fun this opens the door for, it also means it is easy to keep clean. You can easily wash it with soap and water. It’s made of body safe silicone with a lovely soft, velvetty smooth finish; this feels great anywhere on your body, and only requires the smallest touch of lube to make it really slippery. Just make sure to use water based lube so you don’t damage the finish.

Overall: This is a great multi-function vibrator. Felt like I was getting three-for-one. Would love to try more products in the Jimmyjane line.
