My inner geek and fascination with super heroes is in love with the whole branding and packaging for ID Hero Cool Blast. But, my realistic hoity toity side felt the whole look was a bit cheesey. It gave me a sense of false hope that it was more novelty than a real product. Probaly, that’s why it took me so long to take the product seriously to actually give it a try. Which sucks because it ended up being one of my favorite cooling lubes out there.
ID Hero Cool Blast is a water based lubricant that is made with Mentha Piperita oil aka peppermint oil to create a fun cooling effect. Cooling lubricants such as the Cool Blast give a new type of sensation and this one isn’t the type that reacts with friction or a blowing effect. On contact within minutes, it will create a mild sensation and it intensifies from there. I found it to be refreshing especially during the peak of those hot Californian summer nights. **cool down** Also, during a longer diy session that gets too hot.
This lube is clear, with a viscosity that is medium to thick density which makes it easier to apply and glides on with ease. The Cool Blast thickness almost gives a mild cushion between skin to skin/toy contact so it allows you, to feel that friction isn’t going to happen. It’s great for a glide just for the clit.
Just keep in mind, since it is a water-based lubricant, it has tendency to evaporate after awhile. This lube dried out fast for me and when it did, ID Hero Cool Blast became really tacky and I needed to add a bunch more. It left that “I just used lube”thin layer feel on the skin but its fine after a simple soap and water wash down.
Just a tip, The cap is a bit annoying with the snap off closure and the constant open and close has a tendency to break off after time… or dropping it on hard surfaces. >_<
I find any type of cooling lubricant is more of a once in a blue moon to spice things up type of lubricant. ID Hero Cool Blast is awesome when you are a bit bored and need to take it up a notch but I don’t recommend it every day. If you have a temperamental vagina like mine, it messes up with my ecosystem down there and I have to take a visit to the doctor instead of another round of sexy time sessions.
I have only encountered one person who voiced their opinion that they haven’t liked this lube. The cooling sensation was a little extreme for her and after she used the lube she had irritation on her inner labia lips and she got a yeast infection.
Other than that, anyone who’s wanted to try out a cooling lube including myself have enjoyed it. 😀 There is many more from the ID Heroes line to choose but give the cooling and warming lubes a try. 😛
