Koala: Papaya Mango, S'mores, and Strawberry Margarita

Today I'll be looking at three flavored lubricants from Nature Lovin' Lubricants' Koala line. Click either image to see a larger version!

The Koala line is fairly extensive with flavors like Mojito, Tiramisu, and Orange Creamsickle. I requested the chance to review some of the Koala line, as I'd already tried the Raspberry Chessecake- and it was wicked delicious. Unfortunately the flavors I tested, weren't as awesome.

Strawberry Margarita was the worst, tasting disturbingly similar to cough syrup. The S'mores flavor is good, but really sweet, and I didn't want more than a few licks of it. Finally Papaya Mango was my favorite of the bunch with a lovely mango aftertaste- though I still preferred the Raspberry Cheesecake flavor. Koala does offer sample packets, or taste buds, so you can pick out your favorite before committing to an entire bottle.

Scent-wise, all of the flavors' scents matched, and were fairly strong. These lubes are on the thin side, and with rubbing quickly absorb into skin. These are glycerin and paraben free. As these are water-based lubricants, they don't stain, can be washed away easily, and are safe to use with any toys.

Due to the thinness and absorbancy rate, I wouldn't advise the Koala line for anything other than oral play. Depending on flavor, some of the Koala line will make genitals taste like their flavor, while others won't. With these three, the S'mores and Strawberry Margarita masked, and the Papaya Mango did not. As with any lubricant, I would recommend testing for an allergic reaction on one's wrist or upper thigh before using genitally.
