The good folks over at EdenFantasys let me do a little shopping on their dime which means I got some great stuff to try out and review. I’m a little behind on getting the review up, though, because job hunting has me totally worn out and not really feeling the sexytimes. Nonetheless, all work and no play makes Adminderella a cranky girl and so, I broke into my goodies (with wild abandon) and present you now with my thoughts on the loot!
First, I got the Crazy Girl holiday gift… now, don’t limit yourself to something like Christmas or Valentine’s Day for this gift because this can make ANY day special. Also, if you’re going to a bridal shower or bachelorette party, I would think this would be a very nice gift to give. It’s reasonably priced, attractively packaged and there are products the bride can use for herself but also things she can share with her groom. It’s a little sexy but not “over-the-top” so she probably wouldn’t be embarrassed to get it.
There are 5 products in the set: Wanna Be Kissable Lip Balm, Wanna Be Sexy Flirty Body Mist, Wanna Be Intimate Shave Creme, Wanna Be Wild Seductive Soy Massage Candle, and Wanna Be Aroused Oral Sex Gel. According to the package, all items are:
- Made in USA
- Paraben Free
- Sugar Free
- Not tested on animals
The scent of the products (except the oral sex gel) is “Pink Cupcake”, so if you like to smell deliciously sexy, this is the product for you. It’s also a nice, subtle scent so if you don’t like overpowering scents, this is a really good choice.
Let’s start with the lip balm… it’s a good lip balm, goes on smooth, isn’t overly “heavy” and tastes pretty good (which is important if you are someone who tends to lick their lips a lot). Also, it’s SPF 15, so good for protecting your lips which is a nice added bonus.
Next, the body mist… it’s alcohol free so you won’t be drying out your skin using it. It’s really pretty light in fragrance, so I find that if I spritz a little on my clothing (test an inconspicuous spot to make sure you aren’t going to harm the fabric before you do this!) to give it a little longer lasting lingering effect. I also find this nice as an after-bath spray, especially if I’m hopping into bed right afterwards as I can then drift off into happy cupcake dreams!
The shave cream says it can be used on legs, underarms, intimate area, face, and the rest of your body. It’s nice and thick, so you don’t have to use a lot and does a really good job of making sure you get a good, close shave and helps your razor glide so you’ll prevent nicking yourself (especially important in the nether regions!) It’s also a good scent base for the body mist, so keep the fragrance layering concept in mind!
I haven’t yet used the candle as it is intended… but it smells fantastic and burns very clean and the resulting oil is wonderful and your skin will feel fabulous after using it. My bedroom is set up oddly and I don’t really have any sort of bedside table, so this will be a tich of a challenge, but it smells so fabulous, I have to give it a try.
I have also not put the Oral Sex Gel to use as it is intended… I have, however, tested it out more scientifically (I was wearing a lab coat and everything) and can tell you that it has a strawberry flavor that doesn’t leave a nasty aftertaste in your mouth (which is rare in this sort of product) it is also not sticky/tacky so you don’t need to scrub and scrub to get it off. (Handy if you are a cuddler and don’t want to have to worry about running to the shower right away)! This does have saccharin in it, so if you have a sensitivity to artificial sweeteners, just keep that in mind. That being said, the little bit you need to use to take care of the *ahem* job at hand should not pose a problem for most people. This is a nice, thick gel and a little dab will do.
All in all, this is a really nice set and if you have a partner to share the massage candle and oral sex gel with, so much the better! One of the things I liked about this set is the nice bag it came in. It is clear plastic but if you happen to leave it out when, say, your mother-in-law comes to visit, she will likely think it’s just some bath stuff and not give it a second thought. I suppose if she sees the words “oral sex gel” things could get a little awkward, but it’s really nice packaging, in my opinion.
***NOTE… if you are a sensitive-to-things-of-an- “adult” -nature person or, maybe, reading this at work, you might want to skip the rest of the review or save it until you’re not at work***
The second set I got is the Black Magic Pleasure Kit…
This is a set of vibrators and comes with a 4 speed egg vibrator, a pocket rocket, a traditional vibrator and a 1 oz bottle of lube. If you are new to using vibrators and aren’t sure what type you’ll like, this is a good kit to start with because you’ll have some choices. Additionally, these are all in a velvety matte black finish, so they look and feel a little more sophisticated than your average vibrators. The packaging says that they are waterproof, but exercise some caution and test it out before you actually use it in water to make sure that it doesn’t let water in. Nothing is more of a bummer than just getting to “the good part” and having your vibe stop working. (That hasn’t been an issue for me with this set, but it IS, sadly, the voice of experience).
The Lubricant is water based, glycerine free and paraben free. It has absolutely no scent, and no taste. Like most water-based lubes it washes away completely with warm water and a bit of soap. It is silky and doesn’t dry sticky (which is nice if you don’t want to have to hop into the shower immediately after you’re finished).
The pocket rocket is something you might carry in your purse (if you find you just can’t get through the day without a little “tension release”. It’s fairly quiet but I don’t know that I’d be comfortable using it somewhere I might be overheard. It’s got one speed and definitely does the job. I wouldn’t recommend it for insertion, but for external use only. It does hold up better than pocket rocket’s I’ve had in the past and the base is a little tough to get apart from the top which is actually good because it won’t vibrate itself apart in the middle of play as it’s predecessors tended to do. It takes a single AA battery. (I take the battery out when not in use).
The “traditional” vibrator is a 7 inch (6″ insertable, 3 1/4 circumference) vibe with a smooth, velvety finish. It is a pretty average vibe that will get the job done but it is very hard/rigid so exercise a little caution when first using it, especially if you are inserting it. It has a dial so there is some adjustment of intensity and I actually tend to use it on sore neck muscles more than anything. For me, the size and rigidity take it out of my comfort zone for an “internal use” toy but I’m sure that there are people who would LOVE it for that purpose. It’s also fairly loud (can be heard through a closed door… at least in my apartment). This takes 2 AA batteries that sit in a sleeve that you put into the vibe and then screw on the dial end. Again, I take the batteries out when not in use.
Now, the rock star of this set (in my opinion) is the egg vibrator. It has a wired remote with a fairly long cord. It’s powered by 2 AAA batteries and the housing has an O ring to keep the water out, just remember to close the lid tightly and test it before you use it in water. The remote has a series of lights on it so you can tell which speed setting it is on and there is an “up” and a “down” button to adjust the speeds. Even though the cord is sturdy and well attached, this is not something I would use as an internal toy (for either orifice, but especially not anal). If you have it on high, it’s another one that can be heard through a closed door (again, in my apartment).
A huge “pro” for me about this set is that every piece uses batteries which are easily found in pretty much any store that sells batteries. I may or may not sometimes steal batteries from other, more mundane, devices if I happen to run out of buzz in the bedroom.
Edenfantasys has some really great sales going on right now, too. Including a sale on my favorite Lelo products. Take a peek at the goodies that EdenFantasys has to offer and take a little “me” time for yourself!
