Product Review: Trojan Lubricants--Chain Reaction
So, quick review for the first try. I love Trojan brand condoms, but this was my first try of their lubricant line. I will give it another try because, well, the first try wasn't the best. I was pretty excited for non-stop thrills and mind-blowing sensations; Unfortunately, I gotta say, it didn't live up to my expectations. You'll want to make sure you already have the product out of the box before committing to sexy time activities, lest you need to rip open a veryyyyy secured box (that threatens to take off the new gel set nails you got the other day), making for a bit of an awkward pause.
One the lube is out of said packaging, I would suggest maybe doing a patch test on a different part of your skin to see how you react to it. The packaging says-"Both partners may experience sensations of warming, heat, cooling, and/or tingling [...] at different levels of intensity."
Imagine my reaction when a slight cooling sensation gave way to a warming one that rose level after level until my entire vaginal area felt like it was on actual fire🔥. After several seconds of me continuously asking "how does it feel, it isn't burning you?" I couldn't take it anymore and had to grab the nearest towel to wipe it off. I tried to hold out for the chain reaction sensations to show up (was reeeeeally hoping for that cooling again), but I couldn't handle the pain. Even the towel wasn't enough and I needed to douse a cloth in cold water to soothe my burning skin.
My partner said that, outside of a little bit of a warming sensation, it felt like normal lubricant to him. Given this information, I feel it necessary to give it one more shot before deciding this isn't the product for me. So right now I say see how it works for you--but proceed with caution.
Edit: So, I tried it out again. This time, I decided to not risk interrupting sexy time and tried a 'skin test' on myself. I just used a little dab of it on my finger and put it on the outside/slightly inside of myself. At first, I thought maybe I was in the clear, but it quickly warmed up to a painful heat sensation. This stuff does what it advertises, and it does it well. Unfortunately, my body is a little too sensitive to be able to handle it. I think it might work well as a massage oil for my body. My boyfriend doesn't seem to have any side effects to it, so I'll probably just use it on him. It is definitely worth checking out, but if you are someone who is sensitive to products like this, try it out before pouring it on during sex!!
