Babeland Massage Oil

0939500-aSo I think we all know that I have a thing for lubes and oils and candles and lotions and potions, right?  And that every time Babeland offers me something that smells good or tastes good, I’m like “yes please!”, right?

This time it was some lavender vanilla massage oil.

I like lavender vanilla scents and this stuff is fairly natural; sweet almond oil and fragrance.  No petroleum based oils, no preservatives, no stuff with names I can’t pronounce.  Sounds good to me.

It works well, too.  I’ll be frank and admit that I actually use most massage oils as bath/shower oils.  We don’t do that many massages over here but I absolutely love the way it feels to rub oil into my damp, fresh from the bath skin.  Or to add a few drops to the bath itself.  And that’s mostly what I did with this stuff, too.

It performs well.  It glides on, sinks in nicely and leaves the body feeling soft and touchable.  It smells decent, too.  A bit heavy on the lavender, light on the vanilla but the vanilla does  soften the lavender, making it smell less “old lady” and more modern and soft.  In the tub it scents the entire bathroom and you come out of the bath with baby soft skin.

As an actual massage oil it’s fairly long lasting with a nice slide to it.  My hands easily glided across Taylors back when I used it on him, allowing me to rub long without annoying friction.  He doesn’t like the feeling of being oiled up, though, and it does leave you feeling slightly coated when applied to dry skin.

I’d definitely recommend a different scent if you’re going to be using this on your guy.  Vanilla lavender is not the most manly or unisex fragrance.

I got the small, one ounce bottle and it’s plenty for a quite a few massages or baths.  I’ve done a back rub, used it in the bath, used it after a bath and after a shower – both times to coat my entire body – and we still have half an ounce left so a little goes a long way.

Many thanks to Babeland for letting me give this a shot.  I liked it quite a bit and the next time I make a sextoy order, I’ll be ordering more.  In the orange blossom scent next time, I think!
