If there’s anything in the world that I love almost as much as my children, it’s a massage from my husband. (If you’re not getting them, you’re not buying the right products!)
I bet the chances are that you’ll get one with my favorite massage oils from EdenFantasys. I’ve had the opportunity to try out some of the best massage oils in the past few years while working with EdenFantasys, and I’ve used every single one of them as an excuse to get a massage. (Of course, if having the product in hand and asking nicely doesn’t work, I recommend giving the massage first…give and you might receive.)
This time, I got to check out Lelo Flickering Touch Massage Oil, the Fresh Lily & Musk one.
For me, it’s the scent, the consistency, how it glides, and how it feels on my skin. Lelo Flickering Touch Massage Oil passed most of my tests with flying colors. The consistency and glide factor are perfect, much like most of my other favorite massage oils in the EdenFantasys shop. On the skin, it stays slick enough for a long lasting massage, but doesn’t leave your skin greasy. It actually moisturizes very well.
The scent, a light flowers in the meadow kind of smell that comes from the fresh lily mixed with a light musk, didn’t impress me much. I love, love, LOVE this massage oil that smells like bananas and another one that has a cinnamon spice smell – that’s what I like to smell when I’m getting those melt-your-body-down-to-a-gel-form massages that my husband so amazingly delivers. 🙂 But, this lily and musk didn’t really hit the spot for me.
I will say that, in all fairness to a product that is perfect in every other way, I ran the smell past my husband and he seemed to like it, because it was light and flowery, almost a powdery light scent, in his opinion. He’s the one that said it smelled like lightly scented flowers in the meadow, maybe with a little fresh air.
With a price tag of $38.99 for a 4 oz. bottle, you would think that it was made with gold! Right? Funny thing is, the packaging boasts “exquisite oils with 24-Karat gold flakes to lend an eye-catching shimmer”. We first used Lelo at night, so it was difficult to see the shimmer, even with the help of lighting from my hubby’s iPhone.
But, in the morning, I tried it out again. And, sure enough, there were teeny tiny gold flakes in the oil. This was actually one of the characteristics that changed my mind about the Lelo Flickering Touch Massage Oil, the 24-karat gold flakes. That makes a product worth its weight in gold! There isn’t an obvious shimmer on the skin once it’s rubbed in unless you use a whole lot of the product, but between the gold flakes and the way that this oil it made to absorb into the skin without leaving a greasy residue…it doesn’t leave you desiring much more.
My most favorite thing about the massage oils that I have reviewed from EdenFantasys is the fact that most are made with only natural ingredients (at least the ones that are on my “favorites” list are). That’s what I want on my skin! So, yes, the bottles are a bit on the expensive side, but it’s not like you’re paying for a bunch of liquid from who knows where. For example, the Lelo Flickering Touch oil is made of apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, perfume, and gold powder (mica, iron oxide, gold).
On a five star scale, I would give the Lelo Flickering Touch Massage Oil in Fresh Lily and Musk scent a 4 1/2 stars, and the loss of half a star is only because I’m still trying to get used to the scent. I would categorize it in the high-end category for massage oils.
Have you tried any good massage oils lately? Which ones are your favorites?
