I’ve decided to combine a couple of Skins Condoms reviews, as they’re all part of the same big, colourful Skins condoms family. Skins are very well known as a condom brand, and had kindly sent quite a few boxes of condoms over to me in order to gain some on-site reviews. Most of these have been carried out by lovely guest reviewers, but I found myself in a position where I needed to use condoms for a while – so I thought, why not try them out for myself?
Skins Condoms also made a clever pairing with the stars of Geordie Shore, for their ‘Protect your Parsnip‘ promotion – with support from Gaz, Vicky and Scott in banner and video campaigns across the web and in print.
On with the feedback on the couple of boxes I tried out.
Skins Assorted Condoms – Box of 12 – Review
Skins assorted condoms pack of 12 contains 6 duo-strips of condoms, which are foil wrapped for freshness and perforated along the edges so you can easily tear the packs into individually sealed ones as well as making it easy to open them.
The box of 12 assorted contains 4 Natural Condoms, 4 Dots & Ribs Condoms and 4 Ultra Thin Condoms. Each condom is 190mm length, 52mm width and 0.065mm (65 microns) thickness.
There’s not much more to say really – apart from the fact that I couldn’t tell that much difference between the different styles. I could tell when he was wearing a dots & ribs condom, but between the natural and ultra thin there was negligible discernible difference.
Then again I was concentrating too much on what else was going on at the time.
He reported back that the condoms were easy to get into, to put on, and they didn’t break or cause any other problems to either of us. They also didn’t have a strong smell of latex, but that never bothers me anyway. I quite like a clean latex smell. 😉
I’d rate them 8 out of 10 as they could have been more stimulating – and you can buy your pack of Skins Assorted Condoms (box of 12) here for £6.99.
Skins Bubblegum Flavoured Condoms – Box of 4 – Review
These four bubblegum flavoured condoms in the typical friendly and clearly marked Skins box were fun to use, fit well and posed no problems for us. Skins Bubblegum Condoms (box of 4) come in a clearly marked, fun and colourful little box, which is easy to open and retrieve the contents from.
These condoms are 185mm in length, 52mm width and 0.065mm (65 microns) thick.
I hadn’t used a flavoured condom in quite some time, and since my younger days I’d always liked the bubblegum flavour sweets, as well as your good old fashioned bubblegum itself, of course. No chewing on these babies though… especially not when they’re pulled tightly over his erect cock.
The condoms were easy to put on, so he reported, and no signs of any problems with durability or other issues. They stayed on throughout simulated oral sex and beyond, into penetrative sex, and were easy to remove afterwards.
Although the taste was understandably not exactly like bubblegum it did have that scent – which is more of a scent, if I’m honest, than a flavour. They’re fun though, something to have a giggle about before sex and maybe even during – and it adds a naughty edge to kissing after sucking. If you’re into the ageplay roleplay (in BDSM), there are also other avenues that can be considered… I’ll leave that to your imagination.
In summary, the Skins bubblegum condoms are fun to use, they worked perfectly well with us and didn’t cause any issues whatsoever. They could have been a little more flavoured rather than just scented, but they’re enjoyable nonetheless. 8 out of 10 again, and you can buy the Skins Bubblegum Condoms (box of 4) here for £2.99.
