Seduce them with this sleek and smooth massage oil from Lelo. Deepen your desire with the fragrant bouquet of fresh lily contrasted against an earthy base of rich musk. Infused with gold flakes and exquisitely presented, this sensual treat is pure luxury.
Sleek, smooth and seductive the Flickering Touch Massage Oil from Lelo treads the perfect balance between being easily absorbed and yet slick enough for a long-lasting massage.
Balancing musk with fresh floral tones, this scented oil plays between being masculine and feminine. Not overwhelmingly musky, or overpoweringly flowery, there is a beautiful musky, mossy background to the powerful smell of lily.
From the packaging, to the scent, to the iridescent sheen (from 24 carat gold flakes) and sensual touch, Lelo have triumphed again. This massage oil is an affordable luxury, and the ideal way to put a smile on your lover's face.
A perfect gift, each of the Flickering Touch Massage Oil comes in a black box that combines gloss and matt textures and displays a tantalising silhouette of what lies within.
The weighty bottle itself is made from thick dark glass with minimal writing almost embossed into the glass and no stickers anywhere in sight. The lid is made from coloured perspex, relating to the fragrance of the oil. As well as adding a little design chic, the circular lid makes removing and replacing it easy, while the pump dispenses just the right amount of oil to pool in the palm of your hand.
Ingredients: Prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, vitis vinifera (grape seed) oil, simmondsia chinesis (jojoba) seed oil, perfume (benzyl salicylate, d-limonene, linalool), gold powder.

Lelo (Midas) Touch Massage Oil
Reviewed: 25 November 2010 by WandA, a Straight Engaged Male
The pretty pretty box and packaging. It's obviously a luxury product. It comes in a matte and gloss black box with simple LELO gold lettering; all instructions are clear but not obtrusive. After some research the ingredients list checks out well, it contains various oils and a few artificially created scents that are common in various plants (d-limonene is present in lemons! Who'd of thought ey?). The oil is made in China and is 120ml, a fairly generous size and not an annoyingly small amount disguised by pretty façades.
The bottle. *Pigeon coo*. Apart from whispering sweet Swedish nothings in my ear as I dispense its cool silky contents into my hands it really couldn't have been more spot on. I am rather hard to please and Lelo tickles all my sweet spots with this bottle, its functionality, its suave sleek looks, the weighty feel... when it's empty *super sad face* I'll have to find it some use! The lid is excellent, it provides a cool ring around the pump in a lovely purple, it stops the pump being pressed accidentally and it's fantastically easy to grab with oily hands! It's foresight like this that wins awards! The pump is easy to press once free of the ring and a good size squirt comes out at a decent speed. You will not have any accidental spillages with such a well designed bottle and lid.
The actual bottle is a thick glass and too looks like a super posh toiletry or perfume. Glass, as a great conductive material, can easily be left to cool or warm and this might make massages more varied and fun. Unfortunately this wasn't something we could test living in the British equivalent of an igloo. The glass does smudge easily but that's me being a picky sod (as mentioned above).
This review has been difficult to write so far. Having just used the massage oil I can't help but stroke my hands together periodically in the manner of some sinister Bond villan. Also like a Bond villan in the respect that using this product resulted in a very relaxed (but not dead) lady speckled in luscious gold who is quite partial to providing sexual favours (Jill Masterson in Goldfinger? She was an 'escort', see?... O, forget it!). Anyway, no stroking pussies with this massage oil, it's strictly for massage and not a personal lube.
On to use... Once shaken, not stirred (OK, I promise to stop the bad Bond puns), the gold shimmers in the oil once out the bottle and upon unscrewing the lid I could see a lovely sea of glimmering gold sloshing around. On the skin it was not always obvious it was gold coloured (looking slightly silvery depending on the light) but nevertheless the shimmer was beautiful and really caught the light. I can imagine it looks even more gorgeous on darker skin allowing the gold to truly show itself, regardless of this I can tell you it still looks pretty damn hot on blondes! ;)
How the oil feels is fantastic. It really is the best massage product I've ever used and is amazingly good. It does its job excellently, so much so I've unintentionally just repeated the same point 3 times, it's that good (4!). It smoothes on so well, gliding over skin leaving its gorgeous glossy trail, it leaves no oily feeling residue on the hands or body and it just has such a sleek consistency with no pulled or dragged skin.
It is definitely non-greasy and absorbs so well into the skin. How soft it left me and how well it absorbed were surprising. Cleaning was certainly not an issue, we tested washing it off with water and soap and that left my hands oil free and we tested just rubbing it off on a towel with very little oil left on us. This is a big point for me because I hate the feel of 'oily' oils on my skin.
My final point is the smell. As a male you sometimes have to be a bit wary of smelling like a pampered poodle after using something like a massage oil and feeling stripped of your masculinity and arousal. I was once again super impressed! It reminds me a bit of a cross between a certain shaving foam I have and baby talc, however I say this in a good way. Honestly. The equilibrium Lelo have found between the light feminine lily and deep masculine musk is quite something. There are no strong odours before, after or using the product and the fragrance almost seems to blend into your surroundings and produce a relaxing yet arousing scent. The delicately balanced smell is certainly something I wouldn't feel emasculated by and actually makes you feel pampered in a manly way. I'm hardcore, I've tasted so you don't have to... really don't, it is just like tasting perfume.
So, this product is classy, opulent and makes you feel a bit like you're more important than you actually are (King Midas perhaps). I thoroughly recommend it, even given the price tag because it's excellent value!
