Pinups Bullet and Balm Review

The people at Babeland were kind enough to send me a neat little set even though it wasn't on their 'review' list. I have been oogoling these tins for a while because they're just adorable, and I was so stoked at the opportunity to get one for free. So here it is, the Pinups Bullet + Bombshell Balm!

This set comes in a cute, metal tin. There are three different images to choose from, but the set I got is called "Ruby." The image on the front is of an old-fashioned pin up shot. It's of a brunette putting on a garter skirt and wearing nothing else but heels and a bra. Even though it's a bit showy, I still feel like the pin up style makes it classy enough to carry around in your purse.

The tin is about 3 inches long and 4 inches tall, and it's about 1 inch thick. If you wanted to take the foam insert out you could easily keep cigarettes, makeup, condoms, candies, or whatever else you want to take with you in here.

Here's the tin compared to a pen:

And here it is in the original packaging:
This set comes with three things inside it: a bullet, a tin of orgasm balm, and an extra battery. They are all nestled in a foam insert. If you shake it they do rattle around a little bit inside of it, but the lid is sturdy enough that you can toss this in a bag and not worry about the parts getting separated.

Here's a picture of the things together in the tin:
The vibrator itself is bright red and super pretty. It's a bit iridescent in the right lighting, and I feel like it will really appeal to the women in your life who like glitzy things a lot. It's about 3 inches long, which seems to be fairly standard when it comes to cordless bullets like this.

The bullet has 3 settings and they are all controlled by the push button base. This makes it easy to control, but it also may be easy to change the setting if you're using the back of the bullet to put pressure where you need it. It has 3 settings that are as follows:

Low: 1/5 on volume, 2/5 on power
Medium: 1.5/5 on volume, 2.5/5 on power
High: 2/5 on volume, 3.5/5 on power

The balm that this comes with this product has really turned me onto arousal products, and as we speak I have a few more that I ordered on the way! When you first apply it there's a "This isn't working" moment, but after it has time to take effect it gives wherever you spread it a light tingling sensation. This is a wonderful combination with the included bullet!

Even though I don't need any more help being sensitive to vibrations, I find that the best way to use this orgasm balm is to wear it out and about. It's not so powerful that you'll be sweating and squirming, but it adds a bit of sexiness to every day activities like driving around.

The ingredients are:

Sweet Almond Oil, Grape seed Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Capric Triglyceride, Cacao Butter, Peppermint Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Propylparaben, Soybean Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Avocado Oil, Isopropyl Acetate, Bisabolol, phenoxyethenol, Wheat Bran Extract, Matricacaria Flower Extract, Fucus Vesiculosus Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, BHT, Linoleic Acid, Limonene, Linalool

This balm is oil based, so you shouldn't use it with condoms because it can degrade latex. Similarly, this shouldn't be used inside your body because oil can mess up the natural pH of your vagina. Otherwise, this is a sexy way to spice things up! It smells a little bit like sweet cherry, but it just tastes 'tingly.'

Here is the bullet and balm next to a pen:
And here is the balm itself:
Overall, I highly recommend this set. Not only is it gorgeous and does it come in a sweet, retro tin but the contents are spectacular. For the price, this would be wonderful for any woman in your life that you feel would be open to receiving it. (Including yourself!)

If you are interested, Babeland offers this in three different styles, so pick whichever one you think looks the best! They're all wonderfully retro, and you can find them here!
