Review: Lylou Massage Gel - Choco Chilli

Here's something nice I picked up recently - Lylou brand Massage Gel. I'm not sure why they call it a gel, when it's an oil, but a quick look at their website suggests that perhaps the finer subtleties of the English language are not their strong point... I'm not linking it because it also has auto-playing music (ewwww).

The massage oil though, is absolutely delightful. The "Choco Chilli" variety I have smells like chocolate - not very faintly like one of those coco butter moisturisers but like you have a chocolate fondue in the room. The Chilli means the oil is warming.. just the thing for those tired muscles at the end of a long day.

A little goes a long way with this, you only need a 20 cent sized bit of it to give someone a good back massage.. the gel is also "kissable", so it doesn't taste bad.. in case the person your're massaging is a really CLOSE friend. According to the packaging it can also be used as a lubricant, in case they are a really REALLY close friend.. I would exercise caution with that though, there are some places that some people wouldn't want anything that has chilli oil as an ingredient...

This was a good find - a good combination of a really useful product and something that's a bit indulgent as well.

  1. Looks like some really nice stuff, my girlfriend has been using some Nuru massage gel lately that she just has been raving about.
