I’ll start by admitting that I’ve always been suspicious of these sorts of products. I’ve never used them but as there is so much rubbish out there that wouldn’t get a fly going let alone a human being I am a little suspicious of them. But I did say when I got this that I would be as fair minded as I can be. I’ll let you decide if I have at least tried to be!
‘Powerect’ by Skins claims to be a 100% natural way to enhance your erection and overall sexual experience once applied by, as the packaging puts it, “putting the power in your hands”. There are no health warnings issued with the product as it claims to work naturally with the body’s functions in order to increase blood flow to the area and ‘increase the chance of an erection’. Like most blood flow products, if you have poor circulation then this may not be the product for you.
This tester was one of the smaller sachets only containing 5ml of their cream from their range of male enhancement creams. The cream (not a gel) consists of a very long list of ingredients which includes; Aqua (Deionised Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera Gel) Juice, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Zemea Propanediol, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Lepidium Meyenii (Maca) Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Serenoa Repens (Saw Palmetto) Extract, l-arginine, Menthol, Lecithin, Carrageenan, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Rhodiola Crenulata Root Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract, Ptychopetalum Olacoides (Muira Puama) Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Gingko Biloba Extract, Erythroxylum Vaccinifolium (Catuaba) Bark Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C), Algae Extract, Zinc Oxide, Benzyl Nicotinate, Pinus Pinaster (Pycnogenol) Bark Extract, Butea Superba Extract, Parfam (Fragrance), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.
So, to apply the cream you start with a small ‘blob’ no bigger than a garden pea and rub it into the shaft of your penis. I was warned not to get any on your head or balls but that warning isn’t on the product. I suspect as this is a blood flow product and they are 2 very sensitive areas it’s always a good idea to keep such things off them. Once applied you should, at least, start to feel a warming of the area. During one session I used about 5 ‘blobs’ on the same area and for me, I can’t say I really noticed a massive benefit. I definitely felt a warming on the area so I presume extra blood flow was created but I can’t say it added to my erection or made the experience any more enjoyable.
(Oh and for context, my penis is of average size and build with no erectile problems that I am aware of. You could easily put me in the category of your average Joe).
I’d also like to point out some practicalities that make this cream a little impractical. For example, if you want to use this cream and have sex (protected or otherwise) you can’t really. Firstly because there is no information as to what this may do to the inside of a vagina if some of the cream managed leak off and for the gay men reading this no advice as to what it may do to the inside of anus (or a mouth for any gender!). Secondly, if you use a condom you’d have to take the condom off to reapply so practically this can only really be used for masturbation as if you use during sex it’s highly likely your partners vagina, butt and/or mouth is likely to get the same warm feeling. If you’ve ever used those warming lubes, I suspect this is exactly the same. Use at your own risk and own preference.
Final Footse100 Score:
Given that most of you are a kinky lot, if you genuinely want a warm feeling downstairs then you can simply piss on yourself. Cheaper, probably more fun if you’re into that, and if you are really into that, I suspect that act alone will get the penis going more than this cream will. Overall I’d give it a 2 out of 10.
They get 1 point for being ‘natural’ and 1 point because it’s just my penis I’ve tried it on so it may well work wonders for you, but I doubt it.
