I haven’t tried that many Kama Sutra products, but I have heard really good things about them. I decided to try the Kama Sutra Sweet Heart Box in Strawberry from FunWares.
The Kama Sutra Sweet Heart Box comes in a cute red heart shaped cardboard box. It showcases the included products on a bed of chopped brown paper.
The Kama Sutra Sweet Heart Box includes the following:
• Strawberry Crème Body Soufflé
• White Chocolate Chocolate Body Paint with bristle brush applicator
• Strawberry Honey Dust with feather applicator
Strawberry Crème Body Soufflé
The Strawberry Crème Body Soufflé comes in a 1.8 ounce plastic jar and is billed as a kissable massage cream. To me, kissable means lickable so I’ve licked it many a time. The Body Soufflé has the light scent and flavor of strawberry candy. I wouldn’t eat spoonfuls of it but it’s quite good for an edible body product. It’s smooth and creamy against my skin and feels good when rubbed in. It leaves my skin feeling soft and silky with no greasy residue and I feel no need to shower or wash myself off after using the Strawberry Crème Body Soufflé. I can simply put my clothes on or roll over and go to sleep. In fact, it can be used as a lovely scented body cream, and if you get hungry you can always just start gnawing on your own arm.
Strawberry Crème Body Soufflé contains the following ingredients:
Water, Ethylexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Flavor, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparraqfin, Laureth-7, PEG-100 Stearate, Carbomer, Sodium Saccharin, Sodium Hydroxide, Potassium Sorbate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Red 40, Red 33, Benzyl Alcohol.
Granted, this is not an organic product. There are plenty of chemicals in this body cream. However, my sensitive skin enjoys the nourishment it provides and I appreciate the scent and flavor. Please bear in mind this Body Soufflé contains glycerin and thus should not be used internally as glycerin is a sugar and has been linked to increased incidences of yeast infections in women.
White Chocolate Body Paint
White Chocolate Body Paint comes in a 2 ounce glass jar with a short plastic and bristle brush for painting. I am not a fan of the brush at all. It’s cute but the bristles are very stiff. Perhaps this is necessary because the White Chocolate Body paint is quite creamy. It’s possible a softer brush wouldn’t work at all, not that this brush works well. It does grab the creamy body paint but it just sort of pushes it around on the skin. The brush just doesn’t do a great job of painting with the White Chocolate. The White Chocolate Body Paint feels somewhat sticky on my skin. It’s not pleasant like the Strawberry Cream Body Soufflé. I just don’t enjoy playing with it very much.
The flavor of the White Chocolate Body Paint is odd. If I were doing a blind taste test, I might guess it was supposed to be cream soda. I just don’t get much of a white chocolate flavor from it, though it is very sweet. There is also a strange aftertaste that is a bit like alcohol. I don’t drink and am very sensitive to alcohol. I realize there is alcohol in this product but I’m probably just tasting the vanillin or picking up on some weird chemical flavor. I like my sweets, but this is just way too sweet and chemical-y for me. It’s not the worst thing I’ve ever tasted, but it’s certainly not the best.
White Chocolate Body Paint contains the following ingredients:
Corn Syrup, Palm Kernal Oil, Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Non-fat Dried Milk, Whole Milk, Glycerol-Lacto Esters of Fatty Acids, Soya Lecithin, Salt, Vanillin, Ethyl Alcohol, Water, Food Starch, Titanium Diozide, Flavor, Sodium Benzoate.
Strawberry Honey Dust
The 2 ounces of Strawberry Honey Dust comes in a small plastic bag inside a red satin drawstring pouch with a mini feather duster applicator. You are meant to use the feather applicator to lightly dust this kissable dust on your lover’s body. Then you can kiss or lick it away. The Strawberry Honey Dust is a lovely shade of pink, achieved through food coloring, of course.
Unlike original Honey Dust which smells very much Honeysuckle flowers, the Strawberry Honey Dust doesn’t have much of a scent. If anything, it smells lightly of powder with a barely discernible sweetness to it. Unfortunately, there is also not much flavor to the Strawberry Honey Dust. Being a big fan of the original Honey Dust, I was excited to try its strawberry cousin but I was a bit disappointed. The flavor is so faint it is barely there. It is almost an aftertaste of strawberry ice cream, which is quite nice. However, if I didn’t know it was supposed to be strawberry, I’m not sure I’d be able to determine the taste.
Strawberry Honey Dust contains the following ingredients:
Corn Starch, Modified Glucose, Zea Mays Starch, Honey, Flavor, Silica, Sodium Saccharine, Red 33, Red 40.
Kama Sutra Strawberry Sweet Heart Box Pros:
• Cute Box
• Good as a gift
• Sample sizes
• Strawberry Cream Body Soufflé is yummy
Kama Sutra Strawberry Sweet Heart Box Cons:
• White Chocolate Body Paint
• Strawberry Honey Dust
Though I still want to try more Kama Sutra products, this one has been disappointing. I really like the Strawberry Crème Body Soufflé but the both the White Chocolate Body Paint and Strawberry Honey Dust are a bust for me. On its own, I’d give the Strawberry Crème Body Soufflé a solid four beans but I just cannot rate the entire set this high due to White Chocolate Body Paint and Strawberry Honey Dust.
Keep in mind that FunWares offers discreet shipping and most orders ship the same day, which is very fast. The Sweet Heart Box also comes in chocolate, so check this and the many other Kama Sutra products out at FunWares!
