The Toy Love Gel lubricant was sent to me by Wicked Sensual Care in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
When Wicked Sensual Care got in touch with me and said that they would be willing to send me a selection of products from their range, I was super pleased as I had previously read excellent comments from other bloggers in the community. When my box of goodies arrived, I found that they had sent me a wide range of products and this also included a bottle of Toy Love which has been formulated to specifically compliment all your sex toys.
For those of you who may not be familiar with Wicked Sensual Care, they are a company created by women who believe in better lubes better sexual enjoyment whether this be on your own or with a partner and therefore have created a wide range of product; many of which have been infused with botanical ingredients. They are also which are vegan and cruelty free with which is always a bonus.
The bottle that the Toy Love gel lubricant comes in looks very chic and holds a lot of promise for what the bottle contains. The bottle itself has a pump action which makes dispensing the lube so simple without you having to hold on and squeeze for grim death just to get some lube out. Turn the bottle around and you find the ingredients listed; you can see that the lube is water based meaning that it can be used with a toy of any material so whether you wish to use it on you fave silicone, hard plastic or metal or glass toys; jobs a good 'un!
Dispense a little of lube and you'll find that it is damn thick, and is very much a gel as it is quite rightly described. Now this makes sense as it has been thickened with Cellulose Gum. This lube is great for those of my readers who are wanting to avoid Glycerin and Parabens in their lubes because the Toy Love Gel is free from these ingredients. However the Toy Love does contain Propylene Glycol so if any of you are particularly sensitive to this ingredient, you may want to give this one a miss. If like me you aren't then you can use this lube without trouble.
How it Felt
Now I know I said above that this Gel lube is thick but I really wasn't kidding. Its advertised as having a non drip formula and boy Wicked Sensual Care are not kidding! This lube has a great consistency which allows it to stay put without being sticky. Being water based too allows me to go to town with all my favourite toys without fearing making one hell of a mess like I have done before with some other water based lubes.
This lube is incredibly quick and convenient to apply thanks in part to its viscosity and also due to the bottle having a pump action to dispense the lube itself. As we go through lube like nobody's business in our house, it's a relief to know that this lube can be used with any toy in my ever growing collection. As always its always recommended to give whatever toy(s) you have chosen and yourself a good coating of lube to ensure maximum comfort.
Thanks to Toy Love's staying consistency, I found that it had a lot of staying power and that a little did actually go a long, long way! The lube stays where it's needed and thanks to the Aloe& Olive extracts in the ingredients, your skin feels moisturised and nourished and you don't have that horrid drying feeling that some lubes can leave you with. When I used Toy Love with either any of my vibes or dildos, the lube cushioned my clit so it didn't get stimulated to death by the vibrations but also enabled easy insertion and repeated penetration with my dildos. It seemed to enhance the sensations greatly; so much so that at one point I did think that this was possibly the best lube I have ever tried!
I would probably go so far as to say that as this gel lube is so thick, you could probably get away with using it as an anal lube if you happen to be out of your usual. However I have not tried it in this capacity (yet) so I really can only speculate in this respect.
Whilst Toy Love is fragrance free, it does have a slight aqueous smell to it but you can only detect this is you give it a really good sniff which let's face it, most people aren't going to putting lube right under their nose! Now if you wondering if this lube will be suitable for oral sex, think again. Due to the Aloe extracts in the lube's formulation, it is extremely bitter and quite unpleasant, so I really wouldn't recommend using it as an oral sex lube. Wicked Sensual Care offer a range of flavoured lubes that will do the trick so much better than the Toy love would.
Now for cleaning up, Toy Love is easily washed off using warm water and toy cleaner. Now whilst the lube itself is not sticky, other bloggers have mentioned that if not cleaned off right away, Toy Love can dry sticky. Seeing as how I always clean up straight away after playing, I can't agree nor disagree so I will defer to other bloggers on this point.
Care and Storage
As Toy Love comes in a pump dispensing bottle, I would suggest that only you ensure that the nozzle doesn't get clogged up. This can be prevented by keeping the lid on the bottle when not in use and keeping the nozzle plug in when you are not using the lube.
Toy love is a great and decadently thick lube that can be used with any sex toy you may have thanks to it being water based. Also it has Olive & Aloe extracts which help moisturise and nourish your skin. The non drip formula makes the lube incredibly easy to apply where you need it and once applied, it stays put.
Glycerin and Paraben free, this lube should be suitable for most people although if you know you are sensitive to Propylene Glycol, Toy Love is not for you. The only niggle I have is that I wish it was more readily available here in the UK, as while it is easy to find in the US & Canada, it appears to be a bit of bugger to find here over the pond. However I go so far to say that I would be happy to pay the shipping charges from one of the reputable retailers that stocks Wicked Sensual Care products and offers international postage.
Overall it is a damn good lube which in my opinion, beats the pants off other water based lubes out there.
