I really do like Pina Colada’s. I also like getting caught in the rain and making love at midnight… but for now, let’s just focus on the Pina Colada’s. So sweet, creamy and fruity… I could literally drink them all summer long.
But then what about my poor liver? So in order to save it from some strife, I can satisfy my craving for the tropical libation by at least smelling like one. The lovely folx over at SheVibe recently sent over a few goodies to play with, and one of those was the Kama Sutra Naturals Coconut Pineapple Massage Oil. It’s been a long time since we’ve reviewed an oil or anything like that, so thought it was about time to shake it up again. A slow, sensual massage is not only a great lead into slightly naughtier things; but when you work in retail and are on your feet for long hours – a full body massage is just what’s needed to feel human again.
The packaging is fairly simple, and what i’ve come to expect from most massage oils; a simple plastic bottle with one of those flip-top lids. I’ve never used an oil by the brand Kama Sutra before, so wasn’t sure what to expect. In order to dispense the oil, you’ll need to remove the little foil cover under the lid. The lid is easy to use, even with slippery fingers, which is handy during the heat of the moment.
The oil itself is made from a base of Grape Oil, Soybean oil and Almond Oil – fairly typical ingredients, however may not suitable for those with nut allergies. You can use this several ways; as a light moisturising oil you can use daily. For massage (obvs) or you can drip a little into your bath to soften and perfume the water. I of course used it all three ways to give it a thorough go! The scent… oh wow. Yes, this smells exactly as I had hoped. The coconut is a little more understated, but there is a definite hint of it before it’s mixed in with the sweet, fruity aroma of the pineapple. With every sniff, my mouth was watering and I was desperate for a cocktail. Scent wise, it definitely ticked all my boxes. But how did it perform?
As a massage oil, it’s delightful. The consistency is a little runny, so I would advise laying down a towel, or if you are lucky enough to have a Liberator Throe, now is the time to use it. At least then you can ger as messy as you like without having to worry about the sheets. The oil is fairly light, but still produces a good amount of glide as your hands glide over the skin. The test of a good massage oil, is whether I can smell it when i’m the one being massaged… and yes, I definitely can. Initially, it is very subtle, but as the oil starts to warm up, the room is soon filled with the tropical scent of pineapple and it just made me feel VERY happy.
Naturally, during a massage, things can sometimes get *very* heated, and well… often one thing leads to another and this was no exception. Before I knew it, the Mr. was using the oil to massage… other parts of me. It made things delightfully slippery and before I knew it, my toes were curling and my head was draped over the side of the bed, my eyes rolling backwards. The bottle says the massage oil is ‘not kissable’ (i’m not entirely sure I know what that means…) but without any hesitation, he swiftly began deep-throating me and it didn’t seem to bother him. When everything was… over, I asked him about the oil and it’s er, flavour. He said it didn’t really taste of anything; the sweet aroma almost made him *think* he could taste something… but actually, it’s just a very bland taste. I licked a little off my arm and I concur; it doesn’t actually taste horrible – there isn’t a nasty ‘chemical’ taste; it’s just… oily. Naturally I wouldn’t recommend licking it, but sometimes accidents happen and if you did accidentally get some in your mouth… it’s OK.
As for using it as a ‘daily moisturiser’ it does beautifully perfume the skin, and it does leave it feeling soft, but you do need to go sparing as it is an oil, and too much can make it feel a little ‘heavy’ on the skin (although during massage, i’m definitely a firm believer of ‘more is more’). As for a ‘bath oil’, a few drops is enough to help soften the skin, but I have to admit, I did lose some of the aroma. But that’s OK; that’s not the main purpose of the oil!
As massage oils go, this was a far more pleasant experience than the last oils we reviewed. At least these actually contain oil! I personally really like this! The scent is incredible, and during this unseasonably good patch of weather we’ve been having, it’s been making me feel so happy and relaxed. There is a good amount of oil in the bottle (236ml or 8 fl oz) so it should last a fairly long time (if you are JUST using it for massage, like we will be). The consistency is just right; it’s not too thick that it’s sticky, but it’s not too runny so it makes a mess everywhere. But it is on the runnier side, so as I mentioned at the beginning, a towel down ‘just in case’ isn’t the worst idea. I look forward to exploring more from the Kama Sutra range in the future!

The Lowdown | Kama Sutra Naturals Coconut Pineapple Massage Oil
Pros: Really does leave skin feeling soft, pleasantly perfumed and a little goes a long way! Works well for full body massage and just for a little bit of hydration for the skin.
Cons: It’s perhaps ever so slightly runnier than some of my favourite oils, but it’s workable. I also wish it actually had flavour…
Bottom Line: It’s reasonably priced, it’s smells exactly as it should, and it’s not too overwhelming. Good quality oil for a reasonable price too.
