A lube upgrade that we recently bought from Lovehoney.
I decided to upgrade our lube collection as there were times when we had used cheaper lubes that left me with a temporary and mild burning sensation whether it was used during sex or when used in conjunction with our toys. So after reading other reviews we opted for the Sliquid Organics H2O lube as it’s 100% Organic, Vegan, Paraben & Glycerine free etc and it shouldn’t give me a reaction.
It arrived quickly in the standard plain packaging that all Lovehoney orders come in so our postman didn’t get a fright (he already thinks we’re a bit weird) and the bottle that the lube comes is quite classy with the Sliquid logos proudly stating that it’s Botanically Infused. Which botanicals I here you ask? Well it has extracts of Hibiscus, Flax, Alfalfa, Green Tea, Aloe & Sunflower Seeds; so basically more plant based ingredients than my salads have! Also the Sliquid Organics H20 lube has a good dose of Vitamin E to help moisturise the skin so if you do suffer from a bit of dryness down there, this may give you a helping hand.
How it Felt
At first glance, I must admit I was expecting a lube with a thicker consistency but then again up until recently we were using cheaper lubes which generally have a lot more other chemical based ingredients in them to make them thicker. So when we applied the lube, we weren’t expecting it to be quite as runny as it is and we made quite a mess! Good thing I was doing the washing the next day! Other people have described it as a gel but that is not something I would agree with. Once we got our bearings with the viscosity of the lube, we got down to trying it out in many ways.
Both on the OH’s cock and on our smaller toys whether they be glass, silicone or stainless steel, the lube is easily applied and you can quickly coat the surface of whatever you intend to use on yourself or your partner. We found that during regular sex and genera play, the lube was ideal and lasted long enough to give us both the pleasure that we were expecting. The same went for when we played with glass or stainless steel toys too.
However when used on my larger silicone toys, it didn’t seem to last very long at all and we had to keep reapplying which was a little disappointing as other lubes that we had used lasted a lot longer before we had to reapply. At first I thought it could be because maybe I was a little dry but after multiple uses over many play sessions, it kept happening. Now if you only play for short periods of time, then that would be fine but as we tend to go for the long haul and play for a couple of hours at a time it can be frustrating to keep having to add more lube to accommodate the larger toys; especially if you are having a bloody good time.
But to be honest I would probably put up with a bit of hassle reapplying rather than the mild burning sensations that I have had before from using the cheaper lubes out there as it made playing a lot less uncomfortable and gave my piece of mind that I wasn’t going to end up with some god awful rash on my bits! Furthermore there are no fragrances or taste to this lube so there is nothing to irritate you unless you don’t get on with any of the botanical ingredients.
Although for us personally it doesn’t tick every box for lube perfection, I would say that this is a pretty good all-rounder lube. If you do suffer from sensitive skin or every now and again you get a mild reaction from some cheaper lubes like I do, then I would recommend an Organic lube. Provided you don’t have a preference in viscosity or need anything too specific then I would agree that spending a little extra on a natural based lube is well worth it and this one is well worth a try.
Based on our experiences with this particular Sliquid lube we definitely will be trying other lubes in their range to see if we can find one that fits all.
