Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Has the 3 important things for me. I do yoga and piyo a lot. So I needed something to stand the time of use. This does that. It gets a nice grip after about 2 weeks of my daily use, but it was grippy for me after the first day even. It helps my joints especially in difficult positions when my weight is pressing on my hips or ankles. I sweat when I am working out long periods and I like to use it with out my towel but I just wipe it down when it is bothering me because I like to keep it clean as well. The smell went away pretty fast. I have had this mat for 1 year and it still is in great shape. I even shared it with a friend which weighs much more than I being that he is a male. lol.  February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it! I like the thickness of it and how it adheres to the floor. It was a Christmas gift from my husband, recommended by a friend. I love it! December 31, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not sticky at all :( Was so excited to try this mat, but it is extremely slippery!  Even at the start of the class (before I got sweaty) I was slipping in downward dog, and once i did start sweating my feet and hands slid right off the mat. I am so disappointed, considering it is specified as a sticky mat it did not do as promised.  May 28, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Average Mat My grandparents gave this mat to me for Christmas, and I was super excited to see that it was Sticky Grip. Unfortunately, it is not as non-slip as I would have liked. As soon as I do a few down dogs or my hands get a bit sweaty, I slide. I'm disappointed, but if you don't sweat at all or very little, this mat is good. It has great cushioning and a beautiful pattern, but is just too slippery to be stable in downdog for very long.  March 12, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This mat is very slippery and unuseable I was very excited to receive this mat as a Christmas gift and it seemed very suitable from the description and information on the label. However, it has be very disappointing. Neither side of the mat is "sticky" or slip resistant as the label claims, in fact it’s quite slippery to the point that I can't do even a downward dog because my hands slip. I've tried the mat several times on different surfaces and I have the same disappointing results every time. I like all the other characteristics of the mat, such as its thickness and firmness. However, I can't use this mat to do yoga so I do not recommend it. I'm even wondering if it has a manufacturing defect since its advertised characteristics are far from being true. January 30, 2014

As long as the essential oils are mixed in with your mat wash there should be no problem. If you are using 1 cup of mat wash, we recommend using no more than 10 drops of essential oils. Shake your wash before spraying and this will prevent too much oil from being dispersed at once.
