Get your Nuru on!
I was quite confused when I first heard of Nuru, which was a couple of years ago. I thought to myself, was this a company name that made a massage product, or was it the name of the massage product itself? From what I could tell I wasn’t the only one that was confused. I finally got an opportunity to try it out, and after some extensive research, I got some clarification about this Nuru business.
First thing's first, what does the word Nuru even mean? It means SLIPPERY in Japanese. This is what WETå¨ has to say about their Nuru -
Nuru is a style of massage that originated in Japan. It is a sensual massage between partners using full body contact to relax the body and stimulate mutual sexual appetite. The massage is done with both partners fully nude, using a thick, ultra-slippery massage gel.
I also need to clarify that NURU Massage Gel is not exclusive to Wetå¨; other manufactures make this kind of massage gel as well, here are few:
Mr Nori's Magic Gel - Nuru Massage Gel
Premium Nurux Massage Gel – Platinum
Siren Nuru Massage Gel
Keep in mind this review is coming from someone who works in massage bodywork. One technique I use when doing erotic/sensual massage is the body-on-body/body part slides; for example, the Bum or Pussy slide. I see Nuru not so much a style of massage, but instead I see Nuru as the massage product itself (a massage gel). Throughout my review when I say Nuru I am referring to the massage gel. This body-on-body/body parts technique can be done with other types of massage products, for example, massage gel lotions, massage oils and even certain creams and lotions, it all depends on the consistency of a product, the formula.
What makes Nuru stand out from other massage products I have come across is the following: it’s clear, odorless, non-staining, and it’s also easy to clean up. It does have a thick and slimy feel to it which may sound off-putting to some, but in this case it’s not a bad thing- it’s a SEXY SLIMY FEEL! In addition, since some have sensitive skin and even allergies and some do not appreciate scented products, Nuru is fantastic.
What Comes in this Erotic Massage Kit
One bottle of Wetå¨ Nuru™ CONCENTRATED Massage Gel - 8.8oz/250g
Nuru is a pure water-based gel made of moisturizing aloe vera, seaweed, and grapeseed extracts with a soothing chamomile flower extract.
Here is the full list of ingredients- Concentrated: Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Porphyra Umbilicalis (Sea Weed) Extract, PEG-90M, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid.
Wetå¨ Nuru™ makes two formulas: a Concentrated formula (can be diluted with water) and an Original formula- no dilution required. They say this bottle of 8.8oz will give you two massage sessions and the Original bottle of 8.8oz will only give you one massage session.
To dilute you simply put one part water (warm, hot, cool, or cold) and one part of the gel. You can apply the gel directly on your partner and yourself, or you can put some on the plastic massage sheet if you want.
The WETå¨NURU™ is for external use only, but other companies say that it is edible and can be used as a personal lubricant. There is no expiry date on the bottle itself but I did find one on the box.
One instructional video
I would say overall it is a very well made and informative instructional video, (a little on the cheesy side) it takes you through the preparation steps prior to the massage, and explains the preparation of the Nuru Massage Gel covering both formulas. The models also demonstrate a very basic sensual massage sequence, which is great for those who are new to sensual massage. The instructions are on the back of box with pretty pictures of the massage sequence that you see in the video. The link on the box doesn’t work but the link on the bottle takes you directly to the Wetå¨ Nuru™ - BODY–ON–BODY - Premium Massage Gel - Erotic massage kit – website Page.
One Wetå¨ Nuru™ Massage Sheet (fits a king size bed)
This sheet is easy to clean; all you need is a cloth and warm water. You can also use an air mattress if you do not want to massage on your bed or the floor. Some of the other companies do sell a Nuru Massage Gel air mattress but this company only makes the Plastic Nuru Massage Sheet. I think I would have preferred using an air mattress or a fitted plastic sheet because this way it stays in place.
How did I use this product?
I put the bottle in a bowl of hot water and used it directly from the bottle and it did not take long to warm up, which is awesome. Nuru is a great way to awaken ones erogenous zones and get the sexy juices flowing. I had to apply it more than once but I did not mind because it gave me more friction, (became less slippery, somewhat sticky) which is good because I could apply more pressure which can be sexy and sensual as well. But I am very curious to see what the original formula would feel like.
I mixed the product in a bowl of water (I used warm water), very different- much more slippery, slimy and it definitely lasted longer. As I massaged, it did get less slimy and felt somewhat sticky- but not in a bad way. What did my model have to say? “Wow this feels great, NICE! It’s a little sticky but feels goooooood…”. After the massage was complete, the sticky feeling did not last long and it did leave the skin feeling very soft. I felt no residue at all, and I did check in with my model as well a few hours later, and he had no complaints about his skin. He felt great. Once again, everybody is different, so skin types vary person to person, but just give a try, you have nothing to lose, just do the Nuru!
Overall this product can be quite versatile, and I think those who work in massage would enjoy working with it and would find it beneficial! I did and would definitely use this product on my clients. You can play with the consistency of it and make it to your liking, all depending on what you are looking to accomplish. So many possibilities!
Did this Massage kit make my SEXY AND KINKY LIST? YES!
Nuru Massage Gel has caught my attention and I will continue my research and experimentation. I always say one must Explore, Experiment, and Expand in life and that is what I shall do with Nuru. Until next time, Keep fit and Keep it Kinky folks!
