This was our first time trying body paint. We had some fun and a couple laughs, but ended up hoping in the shower before continuing with other things. I don't know how it compares to other body paint, but we just found it too sticky to really be sensual. Haven't used it since. If you don't mind that bit of stickiness though, this stuff is great! It tastes absolutely amazing and cleans up easily. The applicator brush it comes with doesn't work great for applying the paint, so be prepared to try to find another method.
