Supplied to me from the lovely people from Dewci Box in return for an honest and impartial review.
Store - Dewci Box
Price - Varies
So being still fairly new to the reviewing business I was absolutely over the moon when Dewci Box got in touch with me and asked if I would be interested in receiving one of their subscription boxes in exchange for an honest and impartial review. I was so excited everyone in the office with me at the time (as I was at work), knew about it.
Did I care; er no! Needless to say I accepted in an instant. I must admit, I was extremely curious as to what I would be sent as I do have a fairly picky nature and I was perhaps a little worried that my pickiness would let me down here.
When my Dewci Box arrived in plain and discreet packaging in the morning, you have no idea how much temptation I felt in having to hold off opening it, at least until lunchtime. I couldn't very well open the package in the middle of the office with the boss stood next me, well not again anyway!
So when I was finally able to take a peek at what I had received, I was extremely impressed. The actual box has a very sophisticated look to it with the Dewci Box logo embossed on the top in red and white text. The magnetic lid is held by a lovely black ribbon just as a finishing touch. One of my first thoughts was "Oh I can use this to hold my other toys once we've used the items inside" it's that nice a box.
When I lifted the lid of the box, I was pleased with the presentation of all the products inside and the wide range of goodies I had been sent to road test.
Contents of my Dewci Box
How it Felt
Playboy Latex Condom
Although not a huge fan of wearing condoms, the OH is not opposed to them as we don't have too many options regarding birth control thanks to my rather screwed up biology. So it was business as usual when trying out the condom that was included in the Dewci Box.
As the OH is a wee bit larger than average, he did find it a little tight as the condom appears to be sized for the average man. However unlike some latex condoms we have used in the past, this one did not have any horrid latexy smell to it which was nice.
The condom itself was lightly lubricated but with silicone lubricant which enabled us to not use too much lube during sex. The condom was nice and thin so there was next to no loss of sensation which as a caring partner matters as much to me as it does to him. The only downside is that if someone had a latex allergy, they would not be able to use it. We did have a bit of a childish moment as it was a Playboy branded condom and the OH did mention something about me being his Miss December !
Box of Luwi Female Condoms
Having never used female condoms and had never laid eyes on one since those cringy as hell sex education classes at school, I was sceptical to say the least. There were 4 female condoms in the box and are made from thin polyurethane which is ideal if you do have a latex allergy. To fit the Luwi you need to squeeze the smaller ring and insert it into your vagina and then use a finger to push it into place as you would with a tampon, the larger ring then stays outside of your body a bit. This proved to be a bit tricky and awkward at first.
Although the Luwi transmitted heat well and there was little loss of sensation, the OH and I felt that we had to be more cautious as the Luwi are not very long and as mentioned above, the OH is above average in size and he said that he was more conscious of what he was doing and didn't want to go as deep as he would normally go. To remove we gently rotated the outer ring to close the opening before removing.
While a great addition to the Dewci Box as they can be worn for up to 8 hours prior to use and ideal if one of you has a latex allergy, we felt that they just weren't for us.
Hot Heart Massager
One of our favourite items within our Dewci Box was the Hot Heart Massager. We love giving each other massages anyway and this just enabled us to add an extra sensation to them. To use the massager just simply flex the metal circle until you hear a click/snap sound. The thick liquid then begins to crystallise and the heat begins to be emitted.
Being of a science nerd I pointed out to the OH that the heat was the result of an exothermic reaction between the metal disc and the liquid contained within the heart shaped vinyl packet. To which I got look which said "Shut up and take your massage".
The great thing about this heat pack massager is that it is completely re-usable as all you need to do to reset it is to pop it into a pan of boiling water (be careful) for about 10 minutes and then leave to cool to room temperature before next use. A great addition to the Dewci Box to allow you to re-connect on an intimate level after a crappy day at work.
Ayumi Naturals Tranquillity Massage Bath & Body Oil
Our other favourite item within our Dewci Box, this natural oil is right up our street. As mentioned above, we love massages and using bath oils too so this was one of the first items within the box to get used.
I personally love the heady scent of lavender with the undertone of sandalwood and frankincense and when poured into the bath, the scent filled the bathroom very quickly. Being made from 100% natural ingredients and containing lots of skin moisturising and nourishing ingredients, the oil hydrated my usually dry skin exceptionally well.
As a massage oil, we used it in combination with the Hot Heart Massager and thankfully the oil has a medium viscosity so a little goes a fair way and lasts for a good time and locks in moisture so is ideal if you have a massage after a bath or shower. Nice one Dewci Box!
Zuyosa Natural Sexual Vitality Supplement
This was the only product which we thought was a bit odd and perhaps not necessarily needed within the box. Not only that but if your man has any food allergies or pre-existing medical conditions, this may not be suitable. Not to mention that it may not just be heterosexual couples using Dewci Boxes so the inclusion of this product is a bit limiting.
There are four pills contained within the box containing Siberian Ginseng and Maca herbal extracts. It is recommended that only one pill is to be taken within any 24 hour period, what happens if you take more than one? Well sorry guys but we didn't go there. The OH is a virile beast most of the time but like a good boy he took his pill. However he said that he felt no different and was as horny as usual (well I was for a short time wearing some of my best undies)and I can safely say that I didn't notice any difference as I was still knackered afterwards.
This might have some effect for some couples but for us personally, it would appear not.
Sachet of ID Glide Lube
A reasonable quality of water based that can be reactivated with a bit of water when it starts to dry out. I personally prefer a lube with a thicker consistency but this one did the job for us during one of our evenings with the Dewci Box.
Give Lube Aqua Gel Lube Shot
Out of our two lubes included within our Dewci Box, this we thought was the superior lube. It has a nice consistency and did not dry out all that quickly especially when we teamed it up with the Playboy condom. We would definitely recommend this water based this lube to anyone who'll listen!
Power Bullet Vibe
A cute yet reasonable powerful addition the box. Made from ABS plastic, this slim bullet vibe has 3 x speeds but with a single vibration pattern (sorry folks no choice). The vibe takes a single AAA battery which can be inserted by unscrewing the end. To turn on and off and to cycle through the 3 speeds, simply push the button at the end.
Although it emits shallow vibrations which are fine for clitoral stimulation and I was able to get off when using it so I suppose I can't complain.
Can of ready mixed Pimm's & Lemonade
A nice touch within the Dewci Box as I personally really like Pimm's. We shared the can at the start of the evening and the taste is well balanced as some ready mixed versions of drinks can be really crap. Fortunately this one is pleasant and refreshing.
Fortunately the OH is not a big fan of chocolate, just as well really as I had no intention of letting him have this one. Yes I am a choccy fiend and damn proud of it! The chocolate kinda reminded me of advent calendars in its taste and texture. A cute and romantic touch but it would have been nice to have 2, just to prevent any dispute!
Dewci Box must have a bit of a tough task putting together a box to please a wide range of tastes and needs. As I've said before, I'm a picky bugger and not always that easy to please.
However Dewci Box have managed to do this and overall I have been really chuffed with what I have been sent. Their aim to put together luxury subscription boxes for intimate nights in has certainly been achieved here and I would certainly recommend them to anyone seeking a bit of fun and spice for their nights in.
Whether you go for their subscription options or their one off boxes, I'm pretty damn sure that you'll be pleased with the wide variety of the products inside and the value for money you'll receive is astounding. Will I be using a Dewci Box again when we have a dirty weekend away? Definitely!
