Great for Massages and Moisturizing


While I already have about 10 other massage products, I always wanted to try the Sensuous massage oil. Unfortunately, it's always out of stock when I am looking at it, so it was on my wish list for probably 3 years before I finally was able to buy it. I'm definitely glad I finally got a chance to order some from EdenFantasys.

Sensuous comes in a small clear plastic bottle with a press-to-open top. There's a purple label all around the bottle. The front of it is cutely designed with "Sensuous" in a large cursive font with a plaque design behind it and some floral banners beneath it. It states this contains ginseng and some pheromones. The bottle contains 4.5 ounces of oil. The back states that this oil is made from natural essential oils and emollients. This product is not tested on animals, but the finished product is tested on humans.

Ingredients:

Sweet Almond Oil, Safflower Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Avocado Oil, Myristate Propionate, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Actiphyte of Rose Hip, Ginseng, Hawaiian White Ginger, Juniper Berry Fragrance, Evening Primrose, Jasmine, Sun Flower Petals, Rosemary, Lavender, Fragrance and Pheromones



The vast majority of these ingredients are naturally derived from plants and herbs. Isopropyl Myristate is a emollient and skin conditioning agent, however it is also proven to be a pore-clogging ingredient. This is bad news for those who suffer from acne, as it can worsen your acne. I was unable to find any information online about  Myristate Propionate. The remaining ingredients are all natural. I have been getting into making my own bath and body products with natural ingredients and have read that sweet almond oil, which is the main base oil for this, is great for softening and moisturizing skin without clogging pores. The herbal ingredients in this, like ginseng, jasmine, rosemary, and lavender are all essential oils, which are pressed from their respective herbs. These can be very beneficial to the skin if products containing these essential oils are used daily.

This oil is clear and slightly yellow-brown in color. It doesn't look any different than any other natural massage oil product I have tried. It also has the same consistency and feel as other oils. It pours out very easily from the top and is very runny. It's just a bit thicker than water. Sensuous will feel very slippery on skin at first, then as it absorbs it will begin to just feel somewhat greasy. If left on skin for a while, it will fully absorb and leave skin feeling healthy and moisturized.

I like the scent of this oil. It smells very natural and lightly floral. The scent is so light, I can barely smell it unless I put it right under my nose. It tastes somewhat salty to me, however I can also barely taste it. I like how light the scent is. Some oils are too heavily scented for me to leave on my skin when going out. The light scent lets me go out without feeling like I doused myself in perfumes. This scent works well for myself and my fiancé, who doesn't enjoy super feminine scents.

While this oil contains pheromones, I rarely have any expectations of pheromones. They never seem to work for me at all, so it did not bother me at all that the pheromones in this did not work.

This product is intended as a massage oil, however you can also use it as a moisturizer. It can be applied right after a bath or shower to give skin a light fragrance and to soften and moisturize it. I suggest waiting a while before dressing so the oil has a chance to absorb into skin. When using this as a massage oil, I would start out with a small amount first and gently massage it over the skin. If you've covered the entire area of skin and it still feels dry, add a bit more.

I personally prefer this product for use on my legs, feet, arms, and hands. It softens my usually dry hands and feet pretty well and gives them a nice healthy glow. I also love this stuff for moisturizing my nails. Sensuous leaves them healthy and shiny looking. I have a bottle about as big as that of a nail polish bottle that contains natural oils for massaging onto nails. I believe that little tiny bottle cost about $4 or so, and it's not even half the size of Sensuous, which can do the exact same thing.

I don't use Sensuous on either mine or my partner's backs, because we both suffer occasionally from blackheads and acne there. I don't want to cause any more clogged pores in our skin. If you don't have any issues with acne, you should be fine to use this on your skin.

Sensuous should come off pretty easily with soap and water. It may take a bit of scrubbing to get all of it off of skin, but if you just wash the area with soap and warm water, at least the greasy feeling of excess oil will go away.

I feel Sensuous is a pretty discreet product. It's packaged very nicely and just looks like a typical bathroom product. Even though it says it's a massage oil, it does have other uses to keep it around. I think it would make a great gift for anyone.

When storing Sensuous, make sure the bottle is kept upright. It may leak if it turns on its side. If you are travelling, I suggest keeping it in a Ziploc bag to keep it from leaking on whatever else it is packed with. I personally keep mine sitting out on my bedside table, however I don't have any issue with people coming in my room and seeing it out.

I definitely recommend Sensuous. The price is pretty good compared to the amount of oil you get. It's a great, natural oil to keep around. It's not flavored or warming like some other massage oils, but it being more simple makes it great for other uses. Sensuous absorbs quickly into my skin and leaves it feeling soft and moisturized. I really can't think of any complaints about it.

I give Sensuous 5 out of 5 stars. Interested in ordering Sensuous? Simply click the link below to add Sensuous to your cart!
