DONA Sassy Tropical Tease Massage Oil Review
By Nat and Tom
DONA Sassy Tropical Tease Massage Oil review: When I saw that there were a couple of miniature bottles of sweet-sounding massage oil up for reviewing during February’s round, I eagerly put myself forward. I’m a huge fan of massage and it seems to be a huge part of my intimate life with my partner. So, I’m always on the lookout for new products that may enhance these experiences.
The DONA Sassy Tropical Tease Massage Oil arrived neatly presented as shown. It is so petite and unobtrusive that it could be left out on a dresser or thrown in a handbag for easy access. I was really pleased when I noticed the dispensing method as it’s a flip-top and pour lid, which is much more convenient than dealing with droppers and the like. It can be easy to over pour though, so keep in mind that a small amount will do the trick. We’ve done a few body massages and haven’t even gotten through half of the bottle yet.
When I caught the scent for the first time, I was hit with the tropical fruits smell described in the product name. The DONA Sassy Tropical Tease Massage Oil is definitely fruity, but not sickly sweet or overpowering in any way. My partner stated that it reminded him of hot summer nights and drinks by the poolside, which he liked. He did say that it was slightly too feminine for his personal tastes, so this is an oil he prefers to use on me, rather than have it used on him. The other scent we tried was much more his thing.
In regards to the consistency, we were both happy with it. The DONA Sassy Tropical Tease Massage Oil is not runny, but it is quite thin and slick. It may be oil, but it’s not tacky, sticky or greasy at all, which is great news for us. A sticky massage product is a big turn off for us and it makes us want to jump into the shower and rinse it off straight away rather than relax, which defeats the purpose of the product. I’m quite happy to fall asleep or do other things following use of this oil as I can’t feel any residue when it’s been applied to the skin properly. It feels nice both before and after application, with the end result being refreshed, hydrated skin.
The thing that intrigued me most about the DONA Sassy Tropical Tease Massage Oil was the idea of it being aphrodisiac and pheromone infused. I wasn’t sure how or if this would make any difference to a regular scented oil, so I couldn’t wait to put it to the test. If I’m being completely honest, I’m still not sure if it influenced anything. My partner and I did participate in play 4/5 times after using this product, but that could be simply down to the skin on skin contact. I’m not ruling out the infused pheromones or a placebo effect, but I don’t think I’ll ever know for sure whether it was either of those things got us in the mood.
I have super sensitive skin so I checked out the DONA website for further information about the product and discovered an important note that’s worth sharing in this review. All of the pheromones used in these products are 100% safe and contain no harmful chemicals, known allergens or harsh irritants. The pheromones are also synthetic, so are not derived from coyote urine, pigs or humans. These products are cruelty-free and completely vegan friendly.
Overall, I think we are both rather pleased with the DONA Sassy Tropical Tease Massage Oil. It’s a great massage oil with a wonderful consistency and the fact it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin or contain animal materials makes this a high scorer for us.
