1. What is your favourite type of massage product? (i.e. an oil, gel, candle, bar...)
I'm torn between bars and massage candles.
2. How important is it that your massage product is lickable/kissable?
I think so, as normally when massaging a lover our lips get carried away too, as we spot areas of skin which look (well) kissable. Even if it's not intended I'd prefer the experience to be nice rather than getting a bitter taste on my tongue, which can be off putting.
3. What is your favourite scent for a massage product? Do you like just one fragrance, a mixture, or fragrance-free?
I like one's which smell eathy and vanilla. Often these smells go down better with lovers too. Another one if berry and spicey smells.
4. How likely would you be to choose an 'unusual' massage scent, such as lime or chilli?
Chilli would be nice, you could do so many mixes with it, like chilli and chocolate, etc... but I love chilli a lot and kinda scare people how easily I can eat spicey food.
5. Do you/would you enjoy a warming massage product?
Generally I'm not a fan, unless it's for sport massages. I like candles as they warm the oil naturally, I also like bars because they warm to body temp quicker than oils.
6. What are your top three must-have qualities when you're buying a massage product?
Paraben Free. I like them to be Veggie Friendly. It also must absorb into the skin nicely, even when it's coming close to its best before date (some turn clumpy the longer they are open / stored).
7. What are your thoughts on massage products which 'match' your lubricant (including name/packaging/smell/taste)?
Matching packaging seems rather important to some people, and generally, if the packaging is designed well, a collection of the products can oddly fit better into your bathroom background - many of us have bubble baths, and other products, which all have similar packaging due to the brands we choose.
Again, having a bradname and theme tends to be good too.
These things would also help people find the products when someone is recommending them to them. Sometimes when a company has used lots of different packaging for products basically in the same range, it can take a tad longer shopping for the products. Also if you have mix and match offers, it should lead to less confusion.
Because some massage products aren't codom safe, having flavoured lubricants would be a good idea too.
I'd also like to see packaging which is a bit different to the standard containers already in use for these products. I think this is a good way to get people into using a brand, ect. There's so many lubes and things which are packaged in the same bottles, and while they may have different labels, generally I think 'oh that's just another lube', but also when I've used a lube which hasn't gone down well with me, and I see another brand using the same bottles, I can't help but be slightly put off with using that brand (even if it is completely made up of different things).
