We got quite the comprehensive “road test” and review from BarelyInnocent.net recently, and knew we needed to share it with you! She covers it all: packaging, ingredients, skin test, toy test, partner test….all resulting in an enthusiastic, slippery two-thumbs-up!
Actually it’s ALOE Cadabra and it came in the mail to me the other day. I get so giddy with excitement when new things come to me in the mail. When the package arrived I was shocked, I wasn’t expecting anything to begin with, but I love seeing when someone sends you enough of the product to share with your friends.
The packaging was nice. Clean white box with just the right amount of information on the front and sides, INCLUDING a very SHORT list of ingredients. The image on the front was minimal, professional and very tasteful. I honestly felt like I was holding a high end boutique product in my hand. After reading the information on the box, I opened it to find a 2.5oz bottle, completely white except for the product sticker of the same image, the name of product and the only other wording says, NATURAL ALOE. So even if my friends or my child came in my room and it was out they would think it was lotion or Aloe Vera. NICE.
I love that the label has the product ingredients of Vitamin E., Organic Aloe Vera Gel, and 5 other ingredients that are all natural and makes this product, Paraben, Glycerin, and Petroleum FREE!! It is Condom Safe, Toy Friendly and you don’t have to worry if you get any in your mouth as it is made with food grade ingredients as well.
Since I have such sensitive skin I opted to use the original variety. Squeezing a small amount in my hand, I did the time test…Basically rub my fingers together until it starts getting tacky. I was surprised at how smooth and silky it was, that is had no odor and that it was not beading up after even 10 minutes. It looked like the product was going to last longer than my fingers could.
Once I noticed it starting to get less silky, I added a touch of saliva to see if it would recharge itself. I did not find it did much, so I would recommend keeping this bottle nearby for reapplication if you are into faster harder sex, as I had been doing different speeds of movement with my fingers, but I am sitting at about 15 minutes before I even noticed. I think a small squeeze on the shaft of the toy or person would do the trick (No need to stop).
The toy test was more successful when it came to longevity. I used the Pure Bendi for this experiment, a wonderful tool I must say. Between the super soft plush of the material of the Bendi and the silkiness of the Aloe Cadabra it was a very nice compliment. Sometimes material can be too porous and absorb the lubrications as well, but I did not find that to be the case with these partners. Several trips around Venus later, mission successful!
Now onto the unsuspecting partner, and like the use of the Bendi it was a fantastic feel. No hot spots, long lasting, and I found that reapplication was minimally needed even when we went for round two. Even after clean up I could notice a difference in the skin locations that the Aloe Cadabra touched, it was soft and smooth.
The only area I have to really give this product a negative word and it’s not really anyone’s fault here, like pure Aloe Vera Products it can tend to get a bit beady. It was a huge issue for me personally, and was quickly dismissed when you think about the healthy benefits of products like these compared to many other brands out there. But for those that really have an issue with beading, perhaps not an intercourse play lubrication for you.
I am going to give these two thumbs up for this all natural alternative to lubrication.
