I use it because I don't have any reactions to it. However, I find it doesn't provide enough cushion for me (it's not thick enough) and so I keep adding more, but never getting the effect I want. I also like the smell, but would prefer not to always smell like it and I don't want to have to run and wash it off after I'm finished (I'd rather sleep after, not clean up)!
I did finally find a water-based lube, Aloe Cadabra that I can use with no ill effects and I love the consistency. The only problem with that is it dries out/gets absorbed too quickly when using externally for me. So I hope to try mixing it with coconut oil, creating my own hybrid to try. (I have had irritation from all the Sliquid formulas except silicone ones and unfortunately, silicone has the same too thin feeling as coconut oil does for me.) For now it's probably going to have to be Aloe Cadabra inside and coconut oil out! I love the antimicrobial action of coconut oil and that it's so shelf stable, practically never going rancid. You can also heat and let it solidify as many times as you want with no ill effects on it. If it were just thicker, I'd be sooo happy!
