Himalayan White Tea Massage Oil Spray Review
Posted on November 4th, 2008 in Bedroom Bling, Reviews
My first impression of the particular product was the attractive and inconspicuous label. This is not the sort of thing you need to worry about tucking away if you have company over, unlike some sensual product which are plastered with suggestive images. Nothing wrong with suggestive images so long as my mother doesn’t come across it.
The base of this spray is sweet almond oil, which is a personal favorite of mine. It’s a lighter oil, more easily absorbed, and doesn’t leave a lot of residue. It’s also generally safe for sensitive skin types, although in this case, fragrance has been added, and so I would suggest you test a little on your hands before you apply it anywhere else.
Both V and I liked the scent of this product. It wasn’t overwhelming, even when applied in liberal amounts. I dislike scented products that are so strong they leave a ‘taste’ in your mouth, so we were pleased in this case.
I really love the spray bottle, because it allows for better control over the amount of oil you are applying, and it doesn’t get all over the place. You can pump on as much or as little as you’d like and you’re off to the races. I’m thinking I’ll put ALL of my massage oil products in spray bottles from now on. Much better than trying to pour out the right amount.
You may want to warm up this oil before using it. You can do this by filling a bowl with hot water and dropping the bottle into it for a few minutes before use. I would also recommend removing rings, watches, and other jewelry before giving a massage (or getting one, in the case of a hand massage).
V has very sensitive skin, she reacts to pretty much everything that isn’t 100% all natural, and she found this massage oil pretty ok. It did cause a bit of redness on her hands, but it didn’t burn, and it didn’t bother her back at all. As I said above, test a little on yourself to be sure before you get it all over.
Since it is an oil product, it must be washed off with soap and water. I wanted to see if it would leave visible stains on fabric, so we applied a liberal amount to a scrap of cloth and left it overnight. When I checked it in the morning you couldn’t see where I had sprayed the oil, but even so, I’d be careful on good sheets or when putting on clothes after a massage. Around here we have a couple of cheat flat sheets I use to cover our bedding for massages and the like.
Please note that people with nut allergies should never use products made from almond oil.
