Zestra is a topically-applied product that is supposed to increase arousal in women. No, I don’t mean the rush you get when you are the first one inside a sample sale —I am talking about the other kind of arousal!
Men have Viagra, and other types of “stimulants” to get them in the mood for love, but women have traditionally been left on their own. Zestra® is designed to help you feel more. Zestra isn’t rocket science, or a miracle cure for real issues, but it might help but it could, perhaps, put the zing back into your love life. Zestra is a clear liquid that comes in a packette . It consists of a patented blend of botanical oils and extracts, that are supposed to increase a woman’s feelings of desire and arousal. It works (within a few minutes) by heightening your sensitivity to touch.
I don’t have to spell out what that can mean in terms of pleasurable sensations…do I?!
Since this is a column that is “G” rated, I won’t go into specifics, but basically, what the product does is make your skin “slippery” where it is applied, and it also has a warming, tingling effect that lasts for about 10-15 minutes. According to the company, Zestra, an oil, is a mixture of:
PA Free Borage Seed Oil , Evening Primrose Oil, Angelica extract, Coleus Extract, Vitamin C , and Vitamin E . On the skin, they work together to produce the desired result.
Does Zestra work? Zestra provides a slippery, warm feeling where it is needed. If you’re expecting something like the effect Woody Allen got from the “Orgasmatron” in “Sleeper,” you will not be happy. Ratings that I saw from other people varied widely. What that tells me is that expectations play a large part in whether or not you’ll be satisfied (pun unintended) by Zestra. As with so many things, there is no miracle out there, especially if your issues are severe and also emotional as well as physical. Some reviewers said the product smelled bad (I didn’t really think so) and it tasted bad (I didn’t test that). You aren’t going to go on the ride of a lifetime by opening a packette and applying it to your skin. But if all you are seeking is a little “somethin‘ somethin“” extra to make your relationship sexier, especially if you are suffering from certain conditions, and/or are over a certain age, Zestra is certainly worth a try.
The cost varies depending upon what amount you buy. On the Zestra web site you can get a two-packette trial size for $4.95* (you will be asked for “membership” which means you’ll automatically get more at the regular price unless you cancel). The product is also available at major pharmacies and drug stores like Walgreens, Duane Reade, Rite Aid and CVS.
