The texture is fantastic--slippery, slick without being oily or greasy, and downright silky. It never gets sticky, even after wearing off. The Agape lubricant absorbs into the skin nicely, leaving a soft, smooth, sort of matte feeling behind.
It doesn't stay in place if you pump a bit onto your hand and hold it horizontally, but once in use (i.e. rubbed in a bit), it won't migrate or slip away. It's thin, but not runny in the way some lubricants are.
Agape's ingredients are as listed: Methyl Paraben, Propylene Glycol, Propyl Paraben, Sodium Carboxy Methyl Cellulose, Purified Water.
Agape by JO is odorless, and even what little smell it does have isn't very noticeable unless you put your nose in the stuff. The taste isn't the best so, while oral is possible, it may not be enjoyable. The taste is chemical-y.
There is no smell or taste left behind after it has been absorbed.
One pump of this goes a long way. Only one or two pump(s) is needed for a typical masturbation session for me, and two pumps are ample for vaginal sex and light anal play. Of course, if you like things really slippery, more would be to your taste. A single pump produces about an entire palm's worth of lubricant (once it's spread out, but not absorbed).
It mixes in with my female juices and soaks into the skin quite well and doesn't leave residue or stickiness behind, meaning virtually no cleanup. In trying it out, reapplication wasn't necessary; it lasts for the entire session. I did not feel as if I was using a lubricant, and it felt very natural. It leaves skin feeling soft and silky, but not lotion soft.
If you find the lubricant drying up, a little water or saliva can reactivate it.
Agape arrived in a pump-top bottle with a cap, shrink-wrapped for safety. The pump is fantastic and releases a very good amount. It is easy to use with one hand and doesn't leak with the cap on. It is perfect for travel.
There is nothing unattractive about the bottle, but it does say "personal lubricant" on the front. It indicates that it is glycerin, silicone, oil free, and latex safe. It has directions (as if you need any!) and the standard warning in 4 languages (English, Spanish, French, German).
I don't have much experience with lubricants. In fact, I have only used ID Glide and KY Jelly. Agape by JO simply blows ID Glide and KY out of the water! I love the pump top and just love the feel of it in general. I'm tossing my existing bottles and using this one primarily. It cannot be said enough how well it intermingles with my own female lubrication. It becomes one with it.
Objectively, this is a well made lubricant that can be used for just about anything. It's silky smooth, leaves your skin silky smooth, and has a great pump top. I have some major agape (that is, love) for the Agape lubricant by System JO.
