Trojan’s Fire & Ice Condoms | Review

I am consumer.  You know the kind  of consumer when new things are in my line of sight and comments like “oh, shiny! the packaging is oh so pretty! and it makes my heart feel tingly!” *WANT WANT*  *NEED NEED*  *GIMME GIMME*… starts spewing out of my mouth.   Product Packaging  turn my  consumer-driven-eyes into the decision maker which can be possibly a good thing but usually… a bad thing. haha

When it comes to condom shopping, everyone knows the end product inside the fancy packaging is ugly as shit. haha  it’s a hunk of a latex that is a barrier with benefits! but kills the joy for penises everywhere.  So, when we as consumers shop, we have to rely on the packaging and “info” on it or lack thereof.

Trojan is the popular kid of condoms.  They are at all the popular places and have  a pretty large variety of characteristics.   The packaging is inviting and their condom jargon entices you that this hunk of latex is going to make sexy time way better.   So, you can imagine how I felt, as I kept seeing those Fire & Ice condoms fly off the shelves for so long.

I developed a huge FOMO complex.

WHAT IS THIS “DUAL ACTION LUBRICATION” I NEED IN MY LIFE?~  Why is this super hero color scheme on the box drawing my eyes to it each and every time. haha   I’ve had a mix of reviews from people and one of my good friends thought it was the jam and gave me one to try out.

I tried it.  It wasn’t fabulous.  I felt a bit tingly.  It didn’t “set me on fire” like a few customers have told me. haha It didn’t feel like “Icy hot was being rubbed on my junk”.  “Immediate shower power time” didn’t need to happen.  Maybe my lovebox is made of steel but, I just felt a bit uncomfortable.   That’s the only way I can describe it, at the moment.  It felt like something was brewing inside and my insides were being touched by an alien.  haha My love box was irritated, but I couldn’t really grasp the feeling completely since I was in the moment and wasn’t focusing on “Is this condom making the experience better?”.

I usually research things and try it out.  But this time I just jumped in head first and BOY, did I regret it.  I had an angry vag for a few days later. I don’t know why I thought my love box could handle this since I can barely handle certain lubes but *shrug* I YOLO’d to smack that FOMO out the door.

What makes a condom do fancy things is usually the shape to fit perfectly and the lube that makes it do funky things, like the cooling, warming and delays.  Trojan doesn’t tell you what the ingredients to their “Dual action lubrication” is.  Their box is pretty basic when you are actually seeking for answers. 0_0…  It won’t tell you a damn thing.

I normally don’t recommend getting too crazy with lubricants without doing test runs since you never know how your body will react.  Especially, since we don’t have the exact list of ingredients.  So us consumers, have to use our own smarts and common sense!   Majority of the lubes out there use pretty much the same thing. The first part of the name is FIRE!  which implies a warming sensation to stimulate.  This usually means that Capsaicin is an ingredient, a chili pepper extract that when it is used in small dosages can create warmth and heat aka that fire they are talking about. The second part of the name is ICE! to give a cooling effect.  Menthol is used for that stimulation effect.  When air hits your skin that is lubricated it makes a nice effect to make you feel an area that you forgot existed at that point.  Their lubricant is water based and I’m pretty sure contained glycerin/glycerol, a sugar derived component that has a tendency to cause yeast infections! yyyyyyyyyyaY!! 0_0

I’ve read multiple places that on top of those goodies they have benzocaine for guys to make them last longer. No big deal…

My biggest and main concern was the fact that nowhere did it say that the dual action lube used was a spermicidal lube with the condoms.    Rude much?  haha I’ve never been a fan of spermicidal lube after reading the statistics of how ineffective it can be, with 1 out of 5 chances of getting pregnant, I find that almost as fun and nerve racking as playing the russian roulette of pulling out.  But some find that it makes sense, so go you?!?

At first, it sounds like a great idea since spermicidal lubricant immobilizes sperm and I’m all about using contraceptives!  But spermicidal lube NONOXYNOL-9   has been known to erode the cells in the vagina and rectum.  This irritates the lining and can cause micro lesions which may not make you 1 out of 5 pregnant but it can make you have a high percentage to STDs/STIs.

ok ok ok… SO… I rambled.  SO all in all… Trojan Fire & Ice is great to try out, if you are curious about warming and cooling and you already know that it works for you.  But, if you are sensitive then you might steer clear of it.  Irritation and a possible yeast infection might happen from the lubricant they used.  Keep in mind Trojan usually marks their packaging if it uses spermicidal lube included or not.  They literally have a huge assortment of other condoms that are great and various lubes that you can combine with a condom to get this same “fire & ice” effect with better luck.  OR heck! get their non lubricated condom,Trojan Enz mixed in with their warming and hers lubricant. 😀

I’m a bit sad it didn’t work for me out for me, but I did give it a try!

Here’s a coupon to save up to $5 off your next trojan purchase.

 

Miracle Oil by Earthly Body | Review

NEW-Miracle-Oil-bottle-plus-box-Web-2y4n0kumxz5wsveiiutzpmWith the name Miracle Oil, it’s prestigious name sounded like this might be liquid gold. ehhh… and I’m okay with that. haha  I wasn’t sure what it’s prime purpose was and then I realized it’s an all-natural way to transform and help with skin problems ranging from dry feet and heels, shave bumps, waxing irritation, nails & cuticles, scar and stretch mark reduction.

I’ve always been a bit high maintenance when it comes to my skin.  Teenage acne issues.  Never drinking enough water, so my skin is dry as all hell.  Being of mixed ethnic descent and my skin is just prone to having scars show up like hazard signs.  Stretch marks from my lovely fluctuation of weight growing up.  Shaving bumps since I absolutely hate hair anywhere but my head.

I tried the Miracle Oil several times, after I shaved and showered, then with each time the results kept getting better and better.  My razor shaving bumps were nowhere to be found and made my skin was left pretty silky smooth without any irritation.   Almost to the point to where, I’m soooo glad nobody could see in my room just rubbing my body, feeling ‘da smoooooothness haha

My trouble areas of being dry, didn’t even need my daily lotion touch ups.  My scar on my hand that I was paranoid about looks like the Miracle Oil took the blending brush on photoshop and blended to the point to where it isn’t so noticeable.  The skin doesn’t look like scar tissue and more like regular skin.

It’s just nice subtle goodness.  ^_^

It comes with a dropper to apply but I think it’s annoying and I just want to dump it on.  The bottle is a bit small but a little goes a long way and the price tag isn’t so bad so I wouldn’t mind slathering it on (approx. $12.00).

Can’t wait to try it out long term. I’ll be sure to update on that as well. ^_^

Dr. Pink’s Anal Brightening cream | Review

DRP10065The first time I ever encountered anal bleaching cream, I felt like I became a huge ball of insecurity.  I never really was one to be embarrassed of being a lovely half breed that has “bronze goddess” pigmented skin.  But, out of no where I became BEYOND paranoid but not for the purpose of what it said on the bottle.  haha I have scars on my legs that are ALL the different shades of “nude” colors in a crayon box.  These battle wounds were all because I was an outdoor hood rat kind of kid. haha  Then, it kept digging at me for all the other discolored-ness as I began talking with my co-workers about the cream.  They voiced their concerns about their goodie bits and chocolate starfishes.  I guess we all had this idea in our heads of how girl’s parts are supposed to look from porn (appaaaaarently… but I disagree).  We do talk a lot of crap on some of the girls since their cracks are like a deep cave of doom.  lol but everyone is different!  I know my goods aren’t the perfect shade of pink like white girls but it didn’t bug me.  I have caramel skin and milk chocolate chip nips that suit me just fine.  But, I couldn’t be a hater too much and brush off my co-workers concerns since I slather on facial makeup that makes my face an even toned canvas.   They told me that they feel that if their butthole is a darker hue that means they are dirty and maybe that’s what makes everyone want to try this.   So, I put it to the test for my scars, underarms and heck even my starfish. lol

Dr. Pinks Anal Brightening Cream is made for all of your intimate areas and just plain skin in general.  I chose this cream as my first one to use since it is hydroquinone-free and was a great alternative to that.  I’ve read so many horrific stories about how  dangerous at times using a cream with hydroquinone is and didn’t really want to put my body through that. 😛

Dr. Pinks Anal Brightening Cream comes in a 50ml/1.7fl oz bottle, but for the price and how much I have to use I wish it came with more cream in it.  It has an easy pump on top that made application a lot easier.  The consistency of the cream wasn’t as thick as I was expecting and for some reason I had this idea in my head that it was going to be like “shaving cream” thick almost foam like. haha not bad just not expected. It was like a nice night cream consistency.  I didn’t mind the smell and actually thought it wasn’t that bad.  It smelled like a menthol citrus but keep in mind it’s not right up next to my nose so maybe after awhile I probably would have been bothered. The cap sucked though since I dropped it on my tile flooring, it got a crack on the side and barely stayed on even when it was in good shape but it gave it a nice packaging touch to it all.

This review took me a month in the making, since I hate to be too quick to judge.  I love to see quick results, so this PAINED ME to wait so long (that’s probably the reason as to why girls opt to using hydroquinone or just going to a salon to just bleach themselves).  It says it could take weeks to even months to see results, SO PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND.  Luckily, for me it only took 3 days to visibly see results and 2 weeks to be at the level I desired.

I followed the directions completely and did as I was instructed.  Daily, I put a thin layer of the cream on my key spots (underarms, a few scars on my legs and my intimate areas.  After a few days, I started to see a small difference.  It wasn’t a shocking “black Michael Jackson to white Michael Jackson” effect but it lightened to the point to where it highlighted and blended with my regular skin tone.  It worked better on some areas than others but after looking up that one of the key ingredients Kojic Dipalmitate, it sort of works with your body.  Pretty much, it tells the skin to slow it’s roll with the tyrosinase (what makes melanin aka color in the skin).  So, In order for the product to keep working and maintaining the color you desire, you have to keep using the product.  Once you stop, the tyrosinase will continue to create melanin and your skin tone goes back to what it was.

 

Try Dr. Pinks Anal Brightening Cream out! Maybe you’ll like it! I liked it and it worked for me. It’s like real life photoshop. I felt like I just messed with the levels a bit and took the smudge tool to blend my skin all pretty. haha

At one point a customer asked if, I was bullshitting about this and I straight up told her, “If I could pull down my pants and show you how pretty my butthole is…crack ‘n all.. I would!” haha

Just remember though for the hefty price of $49.99 it’s only a temporary fix.  But, I can honestly say the results from this brightening cream, it has boosted my confidence a few notches.

Pink Privates Intimate Area Lightening Cream | Review

BA-PP10Pink Privates is a great Intimate Area Lightening Cream.  It can be used anywhere you feel that you want to lighten things up a bit. Pink Privates is a cream that can be used on your underarms, outer skin of anus and vagina, penis, nipples and scrotum area.   It’s a safer way to lighten skin since it does it progressively over time.

So, if you have patience, try out Pink Privates.  It has Arbutin which prevents melanin from producing and keeps the skin lighter.  You have to apply it twice a day, preferably after you exfoliate the skin.  I saw results after a week but I’m a bit of a spaz and I forget to put it on at times.  Which made things a bit difficult because I couldn’t see the results immediately.  It tells the skin to reproduce new bright and shiny skin but without the darker tones.   It doesn’t have a super pungent smell but it does have a distinctive smell.  Two pumps usually will cover a small area of skin and it’s an easy addition to a skin regime for some.

It’s a pretty penny if you feel that your skin needs it. It run anywhere from $25-50.  But you have to continue using to keep the results once it’s achieved.

419qLZyORUL._AC_UL320_SR310,320_Pure Instinct is an oil product that comes in a variety of forms. One is in a  oil dropper bottle, another is in oil form inside a roll-on bottle and the last one is in a solid perfume tin.  I love recommending the oil dropper since you can dabble that on you, your can mix it while you put on your lotion or put a few drops in a bath to relax.  One small dab on your key points like behind your ear, your neck, wrists or wherever, a little goes a long way.

71NTSsdtIbL._SX522_ (1)As much as I can try and describe this perfume/cologne, I’ve never been able to get people to understand how unique it is was, until they are able to smell it in person.  I usually have to have 3 people around so, they can be able to smell more than 1 person other than yourself.  This perfume/cologne changes with each person as well as the day.  One day I would smell fruity and the next I smelled like a tub of vicks (probably since I used to smoke menthol cigarettes haha).  But, it was always a trip to see the person’s face when they realize that it’s not a perfume with a distinctive smell it’s just plain ol’ me. haha

51QZ31CBCuL._SX355_I personally think that this perfume does grab another person’s attention.  I’m not really sure if it;s a sex attractant per se. Seeing how… haha I’m still single, so maybe this sex attractant isn’t working but it makes me feel good and that’s all that matters.

It’s Unisex, so, Try it out! You might like it! I found it online for as low as $9.99 and high as $24.99.  It’s subtle and doesn’t affect too many people’s allergies or give them a headache from being so pungent. 🙂

Basic Instinct by Pure Romance

Pure Romance is a company where you can host a fun “sex toy party” in the comfort of your own home and have a Pure Romance consultant show you all their products along with fun ways to spice up the “romance” in your life.

I was never much into the Romance thing (i’m a bit of a pessimist and salty in the dating department haha) but whenever I went to a Pure Romance party I loved their other “feel good” beauty products.  My main buy is Basic Instinct: a Sex Attractant.

Basic Instinct by Pure RomanceEnhance your natural allure with Basic Instinct. This roll-on sex attractant uses pheromones to release a scent that is unique to you.

Basic Instinct is a roll-on attractant that I love to use solo or alongside my perfume.  It releases a scent that isn’t too aggressive and changes with every user.   What I mean by that is the smell isn’t distinctive since  this pheromone attractant changes to you smells different each time.

I do recommend that you aren’t crazy with the bottle… aka drop it a bunch of times. haha I’ve had the top break off twice. Basic Instinct is made of oils so be sure to close the cap tight since it sometimes has a tendency to leak… slowly.  But keep in mind these cons are because i’m clumsy and toss my purse around. 😛

Overall, it’s a fun add to your beauty regime, or a gift to a friend.  It works for both males and females.

Basic Instinct is only $28, but  a little goes a long way.  Check out their website, https://www.pureromance.com or see your nearest Pure Romance Consultant.
