EXSENS Crystal Amber Jojoba Massage Oil Review (100ml)
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Just Jess
EXSENS is a Paris-based brand who produce a wide range of massage oils and lubricants using 100% natural and largely organic ingredients. The EXSENS Crystal Amber Jojoba Massage Oil is 93% organic.
Ingredients in the EXSENS Crystal Amber Jojoba Massage Oil include organic sesame, jojoba and sunflower seed oils, known for their moisturising and nourishing properties. The natural ingredients are suitable for all skin types and designed for moisturising both hair and skin. I haven’t been able to use this on my hair as I have a sensitive scalp and can only use a few specific products which I know don’t irritate me, but I’ve experienced no irritation from using it on my skin and my skin was left feeling soft and hydrated.
EXSENS Crystal Amber Jojoba Massage Oil massaged easily into my skin as the formula is very light; I assume the base oil is sunflower seed, as this appears first on the ingredients list, and is much lighter in density than some massage oil bases. It wasn’t at all watery despite being so light and covered my skin well with no stickiness. I didn’t find it absorbed completely as a cream would and my partner and I did need to wash it off after massaging each other but there was no unpleasant residue afterwards.
The accents of fig and sandalwood are quite subtle but are noticeable. I found these pleasant and relaxing. I find heavy perfumes quite sickly but EXSENS seem to have struck the perfect balance.
I’m not a believer in the power of crystals and am often a little scathing of products which claim to have healing properties. EXSENS Crystal Amber Jojoba Massage Oil contains natural amber crystals designed to dispel bad moods and generate positive energy. Admittedly I felt great after my massage, but I tend to after a partner has massaged my half naked body regardless of the oils or creams used!
There are small amber crystal pieces suspended within the massage oil but the opening on the bottle means these don’t come out and remain the in bottle. I assume this is deliberate as amber doesn’t dissolve, and I imagine would be quite rough on the skin.
EXSENS Crystal Amber Jojoba Massage Oil warmed easily when pooled in my hand and spread easily over by partners back. The formula was thick enough to be spread over her skin rather than needing multiple applications or being thin and watery. Once we were both covered in it we were able to slide against each other easily with no friction; thank f*ck for waterproof sheets!
I love giving massages and EXSENS Crystal Amber Jojoba Massage Oil was great for this; substantial without being sticky or needing to use loads, it left no residue on my bedding and it smells great. I’ll definitely be using it again (and dropping not so subtle hints to my partners to return the favour). The only drawback I found was the price $32 just feels a bit too expensive for a massage oil but as it does feel very luxurious I can understand a luxury price tag.
