Who doesn’t love a good massage? Releasing the tension from sore, aching muscles with a slick, scented oil is one of our favourite pastimes and as a result, we get through a ton of massage products each year. We have tried many different massage essentials over the past couple of years, but there’s a few brands that stick out to us as go-to’s.
One of our favourites has to be the Lovehoney Oh! range, which includes three flavoured massage options in both candle and oil form. Today, I’m going to tell you more about the Strawberry flavour. If you just want to know the highlights, then skip ahead to the quick review.
The Oh! range has recently had a packaging/labelling revamp so the bottles no longer look the ones I have pictured. The bottles and dispensing method are slightly different depending on the size. The smaller bottles operate via a dropper system and the larger bottles dispense via a flip top and pour lid. I have come to find this easier than messing around with droppers and the like, but it can be a common occurrence to accidentally over pour. It’s best to keep in mind that a very small amount of massage oil will get the job done. We have done several full body massages and not even got through half of the smaller bottles, which proves that it’s quality over quantity in this case.
In regards to the scent, it’s recognisable almost instantly. I have gotten through multiple bottles of this flavour, so I knew I liked it but the strength of the scent gets me every time. It’s not overpowering or strong enough to bother me, but it’s obvious enough to be noticeable and easily defined as strawberry flavoured. My partner says that he thinks the Lovehoney Oh! Strawberry Massage Oil is quite sweet and some people might find it sickly in large doses. It apparently reminds him of those giant strawberries from Haribo? I don’t know if it’s his sweet tooth making him like the scent of this product, but it’s a definite winner for him. I think it’s pleasant too, although I do prefer the vanilla flavour.
We couldn’t be happier with the consistency. Lovehoney’s massage oils are some of our definitive favourites that we keep coming back to time and time again. I think they’re up there with some of the top brands like Earthly Body, although the scents are a little more artificial. The Oh! Strawberry Massage Oil has a thin, slick texture but isn’t runny. It doesn’t have a sense of tackiness or stickiness to it, which is great news for us. There’s nothing more off-putting than a greasy massage product that makes you want to jump into the shower straight away and scrub it all off.
We can happily move onto a play session, nap or other activity following use with this product as no residue can be felt if it has been applied properly and thoroughly massaged into the skin. It feels nice following the application and leaves the skin feeling soft, nourished and hydrated. It provides the sensual, relaxing experience that we look for in a massage product and works great in combination with a handheld body massager or a massage stone like the Desirables Adori.
