While doing our big monthly shop I was looking for some more interesting lubricant to spice up things in the bedroom! Being parents now we don't get as much quality time but still like to try new products.
It's described as having a tingling effect that warms, cools and tingles intimate areas which i thought sounded a bit different from the usual plain or flavoured lubes we have tried in the passed.
It also eases vaginal dryness which has never been a problem for me but I do find it enhances our pleasure and that can only be a good thing!!
I was really looking forward to using this product so as soon as we got the chance off we went to bed early hoping for a tingling time!! Before I put any of this on any sensitive places I had a quick try on the top of my hand and as expected it had no real effect. I did notice it did not taste so good but considering we prefer flavoured lubes I tried not to let it put me off.
Unfortunately as soon as I applied this to my delicate areas I felt it start to get really warm. My partner tried to blow on it to see if he could cool it down and make it tingle but it had the opposite effect and made it feel like it was burning my skin instead. I ended up having to go for a shower to get it all off which put a dampener on our early night.
I've never had a problem with any other lubricant products so can only assume it's the different ingredients involved in making the tingling effect.
Ingredients - Aqua, Propylene Glycol, Hydroxyethyl cellulose, Aroma, Benzoic acid, Sodium saccharin, Sodium hydroxide
It has not put me off trying new products but I will be wary of this particular type of lubricant.
We bought this in tesco which currently has it priced at £4.50 for a 60ml bottle although I'm sure we got it a bit cheaper on some offer. Tesco recomend to use this within three months of opening which I dont think we would have done.
My partner and i have never used anything like this before so thought we would give it a try....what a waste of money!!!!......I didnt feel the slightest tingle and neither did my partner...will not use again
I had my first (and probably last!) weekend away without my partner a few weeks ago, despite having a wonderful time I really missed him - and from the naughty phone call he gave me on the Saturday night I'm positive the feeling was mutual. I actually couldn't wait to get home, and after mum offered to keep the kids for the night to allow me to unpack (a hell of a euphemism all things considered...) I decided to pop into Boots and see if I could pick up something a little 'interesting' for when I got home. Unfortunately Boots' range of sexy stuff was as poor as I had imagined it to be, so I grabbed a few Durex branded items and heading off to the checkout - and then home.
Tingle from the Durex Play range is a lubricant with a supposed added 'wow' factor, claiming to chill your bits to the point where they'll become uber-sensitive with the delicious tingle usually found only when purchasing gels from Ann Summers and the like at a vastly inflated cost. Durex have cleverly given the bottle an extreme phallic appearance with a curved close fitting lid; the design has changed somewhat since Dooyoo added their piccie and it's now much more fun looking, with brighter colours and generally a more aesthetically pleasing design. It still has the pump top (which doesn't work) but the rest of the bottle looks completely different.
You can use it two ways; to combat vaginal or anal dryness before and during sex, or as a sensation enhancer by applying to your sensitive bits. I don't suffer with vaginal dryness, and the anus is an exit not an entrance in my opinion, so Tingle was bought specifically with high expectations of getting the most from my partners touch on my body - and obviously for him to also experience the 'tingle'. After realising the pump wasn't going to dispense as much as a single drop into my hand I twisted the bottle apart completely to get to the gel - and was instantly stopped dead in my tracks by the distinct lack of any smell coming from the bottle. Anything that promises to make me tingle should smell of menthol or some other tingle-inducing cold aroma, this just smells like bog standard lube - admittedly Durex do say on the back of the bottle that this doesn't contain menthol, but I still expected some sort of cooling minty fragrance if only for the placebo effect.
As a lube it's great. The gel is smooth and wet, totally non-sticky with a gorgeously slippery feeling when applied to the skin. I'd already rubbed it onto my partner's penis when we had penetrative sex for the first time that day and could feel the extra smoothness from the moment he entered me, it felt nice enough but personally I prefer the initial feeling of tightness when we first start to have sex and Tingle is so wet that this sensation was lost. It reduces the feeling of friction which is a huge downside for me, although Mark enjoyed the very wet feeling and this unfortunately sped the process up slightly for him - leaving me orgasm-less and vowing not to use the product in this way again.
Afterwards, when we were ready to go again (not that we ever really stopped!), I grabbed the bottle of Tingle again and experimented with trying it out on different parts of my body. Yes, my body. Mark had had the best of the gel so far and I was determined to catch up as it were. The obvious points of application are the nipples and the clitoris, both (well all three if you count both nipples) of which convinced me that Tingle is an absolute waste of money as it did exactly nothing - oh, my nipples went hard but it was a February afternoon and very cold, if I'd rubbed shampoo into my nipples in that chill they'd have gone hard! The lube aspect adds to the experience of clitoral masturbation as the slippery and very wet feeling is absolutely luscious, unfortunately to bring me to climax meant the same level of finger action quite simply because there's no added tingle produced by the gel to enhance the feeling. Likewise Mark said he couldn't feel anything different when I gave him a hand job compared to if I'd used our usual oil.
Durex Tingle is water based so can be used safely with condoms, it's not a spermicide however so if you're a condom user you need to take the same amount of care as ever. As I've already mentioned it's free from menthol, frankly it needs some, and is suitable for vaginal, anal and oral sex - it tastes icky though so I certainly wouldn't recommend applying prior to a blow job! It washes off easily with plain water and doesn't stain fabric at all, it doesn't really dry on the skin so if you're planning to use it I'd suggest keeping a packet of baby wipes or similar next to the bed so you can dry yourself off a little before sleeping. You can't overdose on Tingle so feel free to use as much as you need/want, although slightly worryingly Durex proclaim that this product can slow down sperm so advise you to see your doctor before use if you are trying to conceive. If irritation occurs yo're advised to discontinue use, which is perfectly obvious to me as who wants an irritated fanny?!
I'm torn as to whether I recommend this, but in fairness I probably should despite my disappointing experience with it. It's sold as a lubricant and in this respect it works brilliantly, the silky smooth wetness produced would ease the discomfort of being dry 'down there' during sex and it's long enough lasting that I doubt anyone would need to pull out and reapply during the actual act. I suspect it would make anal sex a damned sight more comfortable for occasional partakers (ie. those who don't see the need for owning a butt plug) as this sex is obviously going to be a dryer experience - as well as reducing the friction to a level where you don't risk damaging your condom, which I believe is a common worry if you enjoy anal.
A 50ml bottle of Durex Tingle costs £1.99, which is on a par with most lubes - the relatively low price makes me think that even Durex don't believe their own hype about the tingle aspect as they're a horribly greedy company and I suspect that if they actually thought it worked as a sensation enhancer they'd have added a couple of quid to the price! Mind you, in their defense they've created a bottle which can be used as an impromptu dildo so all is not lost...
-- SEXUAL CONTENT IN THIS REVIEW --
My partner and I have only recently got to the point in our relationship where we are completely comfortable with one another, meaning our sex life is becoming more adventurous. I came to buy this on a Christmas shopping trip earlier this month with a friend and decided it would be a funny little 'Christmas present' for my partner.
The lubricant only costs £4 per 50ml bottle from Ann Summers, quite reasonable I think considering lube is becoming much more popular in bedrooms now. I would recommend buying it in store despite any embarrassment as buying online will cost you postage too - although they do wrap discreetly if you don't want the postie knowing of your sexy purchase!
The lube does come slightly better packaged now than this image (which I think is pretty basic!). The bottle is shaped slightly more like an hour glass, but not as thin. I think this is to help with holding the tube while you pump it out. The lid is rounded and fits perfectly so it will never fall off and allow the pump to spray liquid everywhere - although you do need to twist the pump so it works. The pump works well and I find that it squeezes quite a bit of lubricant out in one go so you don't need to pump much. The shape of the bottle does help when your hands are slippery or you're in a hurry as it can't slip out of your hand.
Obviously as it isn't a contraceptive, you will need to use birth control or condoms aswell (unless you're trying to conceive). My friend told me that when using a lubricant with a condom, 'charge' it first. This is done by placing a blob of lubricant on the tip inside the condom, and the tip outside the condom and then rubbing it slightly. I haven't tried this yet but she said it is amazing!
When I first noticed the lube, I did read the back which says what the lubricant claims to do. Supposedly when applied to the skin, it creates a light tingling sensation and makes sexual stimulation even more enjoyable. It does say you can use it for massages but I think its a little too sticky for this and I would only recommend it for sex - if that! The texture is quite sticky and thick, I expected it to be quite creamy. The liquid is clear too so it won't stain bed sheets or anything which is a good thing.
The only time so far I have used this product, my partner and I were a little excited as its something we have never tried before but we were a little disappointed. My partner didn't really see much change except a slight tingle every now and then but for me it made 'down there' feel cold and it didn't tingle at all! Some people may enjoy this sensation but it put me off quite a bit. It felt so horrible I had to have a shower before carrying on (dramatic as it sounds). I found that it lasted well on my boyfriend as he didn't wash it off but once it was only on one person it felt a little better - maybe using less makes it seem like more?
The lubricant doesn't smell of mint like I expected it to, more like rubber which wasn't pleasant! I didn't taste the lube but I expect it also tastes rubbery and leaves a chewing gum like taste in your mouth.
I'd recommend this to people who want to spice up their sex life, but use it for foreplay such as masturbation not full sex as it becomes uncomfortable! Experimenting with different products is the only way to get your own verdict as my experience might be completely different to yours.
I'm never one to be shy when it comes to matters in the bedroom, anyone who even knows me slightly will tell you that I've got a very sexual mind and well I can turn anything rude in my head - it's a special skill that 21 years in the making. So as you do on a dull Saturday afternoon me and the other half went into Boots and while he was looking at something or another - really wasn't paying attention I spotted these lubricants on offer buy one get one half price, so while he wasn't looking picked grabbed a couple of 50 ml bottles and went to the counter; I actually bought this one and the strawberry but that one isn't listed so the Tingle it is.
~*~ Shapely Packaging ~*~
This stuff used to come in a bottle that wasn't any easier or difficult to hold than the current bottle but it just didn't look so nice. Now though it comes in an easier on the eye shape, that is very curvaceous but if you have slippery hands it's not going to help anyone keep hold of it. I'm assuming it's one of those designs that is meant to look like a shapely woman's body with a lid but I might be wrong. It's really easy to get out of the bottle when new, you just need to press the pump a few times to get the flow going, clean the end after use though just in case.
~*~ Tingley Wingley ~*~
In my own personal opinion this stuff isn't really all that good, on your hands - well depending on what you're using it on.... I'd advise only putting it on one hand else you'll be covering your taps in the stuff and well no one wants to accidentally put their hands in that just in case you forget to wash it off, that and the fact if you go to get some more out of the bottle you'll just make your bottle sticky.
Now I won't lie I did use quite a lot of this on my boyfriend purely because I could, by quite a lot I say two ten pence sized pieces, and well he didn't mind, but I figured with as much on my hands as I actually had that there might be some tingling going on in my hands, but nothing - unless I'm devoid of nerves, which is highly unlikely I couldn't feel a thing. However on the other hand (haha) he quite enjoyed it - not massively tingly but enough to be able to take pleasure from it I'm assuming... (Didn't get any complaints....)
Ones of this I have used in the past by Ann Summers, have had a distinctly minty smell to them and well have been incredibly strong considering the delicate areas they are touching, and to be honest one experience I likened to de-icer, not that I've been putting de-icer in sensitive places but you catch my drift. This is no-where near as strong as anything I've tried before which I was quite grateful for, but for me personally this one isn't strong enough to make any difference to me at all. Either I'm not as sensitive as I thought or this stuff just isn't right for me, without going into too much detail, nothing tingled even when loaded up, so it might be onto another tingley one just to see if it will actually work - no doubt I'll do that and it will be too strong for the boyfriend.
Now I will be quick to add, that there are no dry issues between myself and my boyfriend it was purely just so give him something to think about, but after a little while if you are using it during sex and don't have a problem with natural lubrication you might find it turns into a bit of a slip and slide and well it could turn out quite hilarious. That said it does work quite nicely, and lasts pretty much until you take it off, but it is advisable to wash it off as soon as you are finished because it can get a bit sticky and eventually I'd imagine a combination of that and underwear will make it a bit uncomfortable; and well if you are sitting around naked afterwards your poor bed, sofa, floor, wherever you are using it will get covered to, and that doesn't look good with guests.
Thankfully in the few times we've used this neither of us have had any kind of reaction to it, currently not using it due to my other having an operation on sensitive parts can't imagine he'd want that anywhere near that kind of wound at the moment! No red areas, itchiness or dryness afterwards thankfully and of course it is water soluble so it is really easy to wash off if it gets somewhere it isn't meant to.
There are always warnings that come with items like lubricants; this comes with the usual that it is appropriate to be used with other Durex products like their condoms and other sex toys they offer, but one warning that I'd never noticed before is that they warn you that this lubrication slows sperm down, so if you are trying for a baby it is not advisable to use, and that warning is on every bottle so be careful when you are using it for obvious reasons.
Overall it is a good lubricant in the fact that it does its job of making things very wet and slippery but it all depends on your sensitivity as to how much it will tingle you, if you want something stronger get the Ann Summers version but for beginners this is a good start. The fact it's not too expensive either always makes it worth having a bottle just in case! Bonus is it doesn't really have a smell to it either, so no one can walk into the room and know what you've been up to!
~*~ Price and Availability ~*~
This is available at supermarkets, chemists, and stores such as boots a superdrug, you will even find it in your local Doctors Pharmacy which surprised me but never the less it's there.... However be prepared to pay a premium to buy it there. My bottles were £3.49 in Boots on buy one get one half price which they still are now for the 50ml bottle so grab a couple of different ones - if you're wanting a tasty one, get the strawberry - think strawberry lollypops :P
urex Play Tingle seemed at first glance to be one of the easiest things to help spice things up in the bedroom, only it wasn't all that brilliant.
As soon as my boyfriend put it on me it felt warm, which was pleasurable, but he had to put quite a bit of it on just to make it a little bit tingly, and the only effect it had on me was needing a wee!
The "tingly" sensation lasted for about 2 minutes, and suffice to say, was a major disappointment.
My boyfriend said that he didn't feel much and then we had to apply loads to him, only to have it hurt him!
It has a minty taste and very pungent minty smell.
it is very sticky and can be messy.
i liked the fact it had a squirty bit on the bottle so you didnt have to squirt a load of it onto your hand first
Me and my girlfriend saw this on the shelf and decided to buy it, both of us having never tried tingle lube before. We had no idea what to expect.
Thus Durex Play Tingle lubricant cost me about £3.50 from Tesco, and comes in a 50 ml plastic bottle with a pump. It is a water-based lubricant and can be used for oral sex, vaginal sex and anal sex.
Me and my girlfriend initially tried it with vaginal sex. We applied quite a generous amount, but I couldn't really feel any tingle beyond a very mild warming sensation. To me, it was not a whole lot different to using regular lube. It had a greater impact on my girlfriend however as she claimed to really enjoy the tingling sensation, and although it didn't really affect me, it felt as good as any other Durex lube so we still continue to use it.
We also tried using this lube for anal sex, which didn't go down quite so well. For obvious reasons, we used a lot more of the lube for anal than we did for vaginal sex, and while the effect of the lube was the same for me as before, my girlfriend's experience was much different. She said it was tingling so much it was uncomfortable, like when you get toothpaste on your skin. This could have just been down to using too much of it, but since you do want a lot of lube when you have anal sex I would recommend a non-tingle variety for that particular activity. However, for vaginal sex it was fine, and I don't know about other guy's experiences with it but I was a bit disappointed as I had expected to get a better feeling out of it. However, since my girlfriend loved it I guess its not a bad product.
Also I am a fan of the pump bottle system, as it means that you can easily control how much you use without accidentally using too much.
I first tried this a while ago but recently got bought 2 bottles of it while shopping at Tesco as it was buy one get one free for just £3.99 and I can't resist a good bargain. Each bottle contains 50ml of lube which is quite a generous amount in my opinon considering the price. I didn't really hesitate when buying this as it is a Durex product and I am very familiar with the brand and I have found a majority of their lubes, condoms and sex toys to be of good quality.
The lube comes in a 50ml plastic green 'pump' bottle, which is very handy in ensuring you don't use too much, and therefor you do get your moneys worth as a bottle lasts for ages even with regular use. You twist the pump on the top to open, squeeze out your prefered amount and then simply smooth it onto the skin. On the side of the bottle it has the product's title so it's clear what it is. It's also made clear that if any irritation or burning is experienced to discontinue use, and it states clearly that the lube does not contain spermicide, nor does it act as a contraceptive, which I am sure people will know anyway but I suppose they're just covering their own backs by stating this.
On the other side is a brief description and directions, also mentioning the lube can be used all over the body aswell as your bits, describing the experience as a top to 'toe tinging experience'. I did enjoy this, as you can use as much as you like, experiencing the tingling sensation as much as you want, meaning that the pleasure is buildable and it's really fun and unusual foreplay which is nice for a change. It's ideal for use with condoms too and the lube can be easily applied to the condom while the guy is wearing it. It can be used by couples or for personal use.
I personally don't think much of this lube - it's nothing special but it's cheap and a nice change mine and my boyfriend's usual foreplay. I don't particullary like the smell of this as it instantly reminded me of toothpaste, which definetly isn't a very sensual smell! The texture of the lube is the same as any other lube to be blunt. It's has a very slight sticky feel to it but it's not greasy or runny at all so it smoothes onto the skin nicely without dripping off or absorbing too quickly. The tingle itself was noticeabe but not a great feeling. It started off as very weak but soon became stronger. My boyfriend didn't like the sensation at all and had to wash it off 2 minutes after application because it said the tingling had a cooling effect on him! We decided to give it another go though and as a lube it pretty acted well, not needing to be reapplied too frequently and it lasted pretty much all the way until climax. Saying that though I don't have any issues with dryness so if you do then you will probably need to use a considerable amount of this as it doesn't provide as much moisture as the normal lubes do in my opinion.
This actually left a bit of slightly sticky residue on the sofa, and mine and my boyfriend's private parts/skin, so it needed to be washed off after intercourse because it lasted so well! It's water based though so was easy to wash off of ourselves and I wiped the sofa down with antibacterial wipes and it came off fine, it didn't stain or leave a strange minty smell like I was worried it would. This can also be used as a massage gel, but to be totally honest it's probably one of the least relaxing/pleasant lubes I have used, yes it is okay for mild clitoral stimulation and it provides a nice fun and 'different' kind of sensation but it definetly wouldn't be a product I would use as a massage gel lol.
I would reccomend this if you want to try something different. Even if you don't enjoy the tingle, the tingle isn't too strong and it acts pretty well as a lubricant and isn't too expensive. It's nice and gentle on my sensetive skin and neither me nor my boyfriend experienced itchnes/pain/redness. I wouldn't reccomend this to anyone with vaginal dryness as I do think the main purpose of it is the 'tingle factor' which can be quite distracting if that makes sense. I award the Durex Play Tingle 4/5 Stars :-)
Disclaimer: If you aren't comfortable with reading reviews that are of a sexual nature, then feel free to skip this review! I do go into a little bit more detail of sexual activities in this review than I did with my last lubricant review, so you've been warned!
As I mentioned in my previous lubricant review (Durex Play Very Cherry Lubricant), my boyfriend and I like to try new things and incorporate a little bit of extra excitement into our bedroom playtimes! Today I'll be reviewing the Durex Play Tingle Lubricant which seems to be a bit hit or miss with most people.
When we first purchased this lubricant, we didn't really give it much thought. We knew we wanted something new and exciting that provide a new sensation for both of us, but neither of us could put our finger on what it was exactly that we were after. After a few minutes of staring at a shelf of lubricants in Boots, we decided on the Durex Play Tingle Lubricant and went on our merry way! Well, you'd be merry too, wouldn't you?
The lubricant comes in a plastic pump bottle that is the same for all of the Durex Play lubricant range. Sadly we've had a lot of problems with the pump on this particular bottle as there seems to be a spring inside it loose or something. This just means that we have to unscrew the pump and pour a little bit of the lubricant out, instead of using the handy pump. It isn't too much of a problem but we'd still have liked for the pump to actually work. I know this isn't a problem with all of the Durex pumps as we've used other ones that work just fine.
The bottle itself has changed slightly from the image show above, and I'm also led to believe that the packaging has changed slightly since we purchased our bottle. The tingle lube will always be found in a bluey-green bottle though - just don't mistake it for aloe vera one!
As this is a water based lubricant, it is suitable for use with condoms (unlike oil based lubricants that are 1: bad for your sensitive areas and 2: more likely to break down the latex of a condom). I can't tell you how this lubricant feels with condoms though, as we don't use them (we have both been tested and are clean, I'm also on birth control). The bottle also states that this can be used for vaginal, anal and oral sex. I won't be talking about how it works for anal sex as we haven't used it for that purpose, but I will go on to talk about vaginal and oral sex.
The lubricant itself is a clear, silky gel, much like the Very Cherry lubricant that I've already reviewed. There is a slight scent of menthol to it, and you can feel it tingling as soon as it touches the skin.
For vaginal sex we simply apply some the my boyfriend's penis and off we go with ease. There is a slight tingling sensation which also feels a little cooling. This feels really lovely for me, and my boyfriend claims he loves it too. I know that some women have trouble with tingle lubricants as they feel that they can burn, so definitely be careful if you're giving this a try. I have had no burning sensations.
We've also tried applying it directly onto my clitoris, either during foreplay and a little teasing, or just by myself. This can be a little too intense at times, but feels absolutely incredible if applied just above or below the clitoris.
The first few times we used this for oral sex, we simply applied a little onto his penis and then I just carried on as I normally would when performing oral sex on him. He said that the lubricant heightened his sensitivity and felt incredible. The only downside was that it tingled my mouth so much that I couldn't feel the tip of my tongue and my lips felt like they had pins and needles!
I've now taken to sneakily applying this to my lips (it looks just like a lipgloss, so he's always fooled!) before performing oral sex on him - there is only a tiny amount on my lips so it won't numb my mouth, but the surprise of the gentle tingling drives him absolutely wild.
We've found absolutely no stickiness with this lubricant, which is always a bonus as sticky lubricants aren't exactly a turn on! We've also found that it washes out of clothes/bedding easily without leaving any stains.
To buy this in Boots, a 50ml bottle will cost you £3.59. You can also find it in Ann Summers for £4 or £6.50 for a 100ml bottle. The tingle lubricant is also part of a few gift sets available in Ann Summers, and with Christmas coming up, you might want to treat someone special!
I'd like to give this product 5 stars as the product itself is simply incredible, but due to the failing pump, I'll remove 1 star.
Thanks for reading!
I tried this when I was having sex for the first time as I wanted it to be a good experience as many teenagers/people do tend to regret their first time.
So as I heard stories that your first time can be painful, and that lube does tend to help and possibly make it less painful, I thought I would give this a go and see if it actually worked.
So when I first tried it, I felt nothing, and I knew something wasn't right and I wasn't sure at the time whether it was the pain of having sex or the fact the product didn't work and it was burning more than tingling. I think now, it was both pain and the product didn't work and burn instead of tingle. I was in so much I was on the edge of crying! And I was totally not expecting pain.
This is sold for about four or five pounds (can't remember exact price as I bought it a while back) and it can be found in superdrug, boots, supermarkets and they're not worth buying no matter if you find it cheap or it's three or four pounds.
Overall, looking back at my views, just don't waste your money on this product and this will not make sex good or give you a good first time experience, just go and find another lube and there is a huge range of durex lube and they will work better than this one.
Essentially, as a lubricant, it works very well. It has a good consistency once applied and I've personally found it provides enough lubricant initially for sex and it lasts long enough to continue to be helpful. It won't last throughout sex, if you need it constantly it would have to re reapplied, but it provides enough at the start.
As a thick liquid it can end up being quite sticky, not a problem on the genitals, but it is a problem for your hands after you've applied. Not quite sexy to then properly wash them, so you're pretty much stuck with wiping them on whatever is to hand.
Occasionally, I have had a problem with this lubricant feeling like burning. Literally I get either no 'tingle' from it at all, or it kind of burns in 'cold' sort of way. Granted, it's only happen a few times so could actually be due to any number of things, but it's still not something I want during sex or from any personal care product.
You pay slightly more for this lubricant (or any lubricant within the play range) than other lubricants. So if you want one purely for basis purposes, and not as an addition to the sexual experience, then stick to alternatives such as Boots lubricant or KY jelly instead of play alternatives. But as I've personally found no added pleasure from this anyway, so I can't recommend it the latter purpose anyway. For just under £4, this lubricant is definitely not worth the money you pay for it, try others in the play range, or just basic lubricants.
While shopping in Sainsbury's we spied the Durex Play range on the bottom shelf nestling in with vitamins & sticking plasters! It was on Buy One Get One Free offer so we had a look & decided to treat ourselves to all of them, just for a bit of fun & to keep things spicy & exciting.
The product comes in a 50ml green plastic bottle with a pump lid.
On bottom of bottle is states Made in Thailand & shows the expiry date.
On one side of the bottle is the name of the Product - durex play extra silky tingle light silky lube & the amount contained (ours is 50ml ).
On the other side is the description - smooth on a little lube & you'll feel heightened tingling sensations. This long lasting lube is so silky it can be used all over the body making it ideal for top to toe tingling experience.
How to use - Twist pump to open, shake well before use. At first squeeze one measure of lube & smooth o n to your erogenous zones.
When you experience the tingle sensation, reapply as often as you want.
Play tingle personal lubricant is ideal for use with Durex condoms & can be applied to the condom when it is already on. However it is not a contraception & does not contain spermicide.
Avoid contact with eyes. This product may cause irritation, warming/burning or itching in either partner. If this occurs or if additional lubricant is needed all the time, discontinue use, and if symptoms persist consult your doctor.
Store at room temperature, in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Use within 3 months of opening.
Have you explored the other play products? Why not experiment with Feel or Heat for added enhancement?
Safe to use with condoms.
Use & experiences
The bottle says on the back label 'Why not experiment with Feel or Heat for added enhancement?' I presume this could mean trying all products together perhaps on different parts at the same time. There a re various offers online for buying a pack of three kinds from £11.99 ebay.
The play Tingle lubricant we are talking about here is £3.78 at Amazon but cheaper at supermarkets and as we found often on BOGOF, so you could perhaps get 4 bottles for around £6 max! There is also the added bonus that you don't actually have to ask for it, just pop it in your trolley & it probably doesn't even get noticed when you pay for it amongst your groceries!
It is suitable for both sexes to use.
Safe to use with condoms.
The top was awkward to open (when new there was a plastic seal that needed to be ripped off first) & if you are not careful could ruin the mood the same as having to stop to put a condom on.
When you have finished, it is difficult to seal the pump lid so that no lube escapes the bottle. I keep it in a plastic bag with the others in case of spills if it tips or is knocked over & the bottle & bag are always greasy/wet.
Water based so easy to wash off your body or your sheets or towels. Be careful when applying as it comes out of the bottle thinner than you expect & could run everywhere! It claims to be non greasy & non sticky, but you still feel like a good shower afterwards.
Our experience was that there was so little tingle as to be not worth the title. It was a big disappointment
As an all over massage it was pleasant & a nice feel but we were not keen on the minty smell - reminded us of toothpaste all the time. As a lubricant it was OK but one lubricant is much like another.
it is a nice silky lubricant for this purpose. Alternatively we have durex play 2 in 1 massage lubricant which comes in a 200ml bottle & works out a much cheaper alternative.
As a lubricant for intimate purposes rather than for body massage , you might just as well use KY Jelly or the cheaper Boots own make alternative.
For the purpose of this review I have just shaken the bottle well & applied to the inside of my wrist. Five minutes later there is absolutely no effect whatsoever (apart from I have made the desk greasy!) It's possible it may have gone over the 'use after 3 months of opening', but I wouldn't have thought that would make much difference. It is still within the use by date.
It is interesting to read other peoples experiences of this product as some say it burns, some say it tingles like WOW & others like us have found it to be pretty useless in that respect. I guess either different people react in different ways to products on their skin or else the product varies from one batch to another.
Tingle lubricant is a lubricant made by Durex, and as such is deemed safe to use with Durex condoms, which is always a bonus, as a torn or melted condom is never a good thing!
I first came across this a few years back when one of my friends thought it was funny to rub this on peoples faces!! He was immature and crazy, still is but that is a different story lol. I found on your face, the tingle of this stuff almost feels like toothpaste has slid its way onto your cheek when brushing your teeth, but it is a whole different story when you use it for its intended purpose!
It was a couple of years after the face incident that I recieved a sample sachet of this stuff along with some condoms I bought, and I thought I might as well give it a try, and my partner seemed fine with trying it too, so when the next occasion arose (no pun intended lol) we gave this a try, to a bit of a shocking result.
At first the tingle was just a gentle tingle, and was a sort of nice sensation, but it very quickly became more of a burn which actually started to hurt both me and my partner, and things had to be called short for a fight over who got the cold shower first lol! The shower helped to cool the burn, but took some time to get rid of the burning completely.
This is something I will never be using again, as burning lubricant really is not my sort of thing! If you do wish to use this, as I am sure it won't burn for everyone (I Hope!) you can buy this in Boots, Superdrug, and some major supermarket chains, for around £4.
My boyfriend and I decided to spice things up a little and invest in some lubricant, which is something we'd tried once or twice before and had found to be a nice touch to add a bit of fun. I'd heard from a few girl friends of mine about the Durex play range, and the reviews had been mixed. I heard in particular about the Heat and Tingle lubricant. I read a few reviews online about the two lubricants.
On reading the reviews for the Tingle lubricant, I had been given the impression that the lubricant burned more than tingled, and seemed to leave the majority of people with an uncomfortable sensation. Not to mention the apparently overpowering minty smell of the lubricant. Therefore, I sent my boyfriend to buy the Heat lubricant yet, unsurprisingly, he returned with the Tingle instead.
I was a little apprehensive to say the least about using this lubricant given that I expected it to burn and leave me with a comfortable feeling but after seeing a 'New and Improved' label on the bottle I decided to count my losses and join in the fun.
I had read that this lubricant was runny and oily, as well as being sticky. However, I found the lubricant to be of an excellent texture - it was not at all runny and hence didn't run onto and stain my sheets too much. Nor did I find it oily or greasy. However, the lubricant is a little sticky and after applying it, I did feel the need to wash my hands, and jumping out of bed to wash your hands is hardly a mood enhancer.
The smell of the lubricant was a faint and gentle minty smell. It was not as overpowering as I had expected, and I imagine that this is a feature of the new and improved product. It was not a strong smell and hence didn't create too much of a problem, although I don't think mint is the most wonderful smell to have in bed with you when you're trying to get into the mood.
This lubricant is suitable for oral sex, and hence I would expect it to taste reasonably good. Surprisingly, it does. It smells much like it tastes - a faint and gentle minty taste that is similar to chewing gum but much less strong. Again, however, mint is hardly the most erotic of tastes and hence I do think an alternative flavouring might have been more suitable!
This lubrication is excellent at doing what it is supposed to. It is honestly one of the most effective that I have used, and makes penetration easy and comfortable. However, I have to say that the 'Tingle' was almost non existent. After blowing on the areas to which the lubricant has been applied, there is a slight tingling sensation but definitely nothing like I would have expected. On the plus side, I felt absolutely no burning (as have many people whose reviews I have read). However, I do expected a 'Tingle' lubricant to in fact tingle and to not feel much like any other product I have used.
In conclusion, this is a great lubricant, but a standard lubricant at that. It does not tingle and hence doesn't do what it says on the tin. However, it does act effectively as a lubricant and does its job well. If you're looking for a good, standard lubricant then this is a good product, but don't expect any tingling extras.
AWFUL!!! Won it as part of a gag-gift package; Normally not a lube user but we thought it would be fun to try, WRONG. Right away the entire room smells like toothpaste and about 5 seconds after putting it on I jumped out of bed with the feeling like my vag was on fire. It was a very unpleasant 'cold burn' sensation; closest thing i can describe is when your hands get frozen in the winter and you run them under hot water.. OW!!! Ran to the bathroom and tried to wash it of.... discomfort still lasted about 10 minutes after that before it finally went away.
