Use

Astroglide X Silicone Lubricant is best used for solo sessions, toys, or couples. For couples, it works great for both vaginal and anal play. It is also latex safe.

Silicone-based lubricants are not absorbed by skin or mucus membranes, and consequently last longer than water-based lubricants. It can be difficult to remove after unless you use light soap and water, though it does not feel gross or sticky afterwards. In fact, it feels rather smooth on the skin after use.

Silicone-based lubricants are not usually recommended for use with sex toys or other products that are made from silicone because the formula may dissolve the surface, making it sticky to the touch and causing disintegration of the item over time. If you aren't sure if you can use a toy with a silicone lubricant, check the product packaging or look it up online to be safe.

You can use this for shower sex if you desire, as silicone lubricants tend to last longer that water-based.

This is glycerin and paraben free, so you don't have to worry about yeast infections or irritations with safe use. I found it very comfortable and non-irritating.

It is also fragrance free, hormone free, and flavor-free. It doesn't have a taste, though I personally do not enjoy the texture it leaves behind when I attempt oral on my partner afterwards.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

I found Astroglide X to be very slippery and silky to use, and slightly thicker (but not too thick, and definitely not "chunky") than some other lubricants I've used in the past (including Wet Platinum). It works quite well for anal sex and it's fantastic for vaginal sex with a partner. No need to reapply or use too much at all.

It pours fairly easily; I find you have to squeeze lightly to pour it fast so it doesn't waste a lot or come out too fast.

It does NOT feel sticky, unlike most (if not all) water-based lubricants. It is fantastic for clitoral stimulation or adding a slippery glide to a toy for use during solo play.

It is easy to apply to a condom and does not leave your hand or body parts sticky; during use and after it leaves your skin silky smooth.
    • Slick
    • Smooth

Taste / Aroma

I would not recommend this for oral sex if that's what you're looking for. There isn't a taste to it, however the texture is oily if you were to taste it on your partner's skin.

There is no odour.
    • No smell
    • No taste

Performance

It lasts a long amount of time; it does not dry up. Things stay lubricated after application. It is NOT STICKY. I personally hate sticky lubricants and this works very well at staying silky smooth for a very long time.

You do have to wash it off it you do not like the silky finish it will leave on your skin after use. It comes off fairly easily with light soap and water.

It performs very well, and as I said, it's fantastic for solo play, toys, and with a partner (for both vaginal and anal sex).

I like how it is safe for vaginal use, as I worry about getting infections and/or irritating my vagina. I can use this product on a daily/weekly basis without concern.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Long lasting
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water

Packaging

The product comes in a small box, just big enough to fit the bottle. There aren't any instructions aside from what is on the box.

The bottle has a seal that you'll need to remove for initial use. It does mention how it's non-irritating, long-lasting, fragrance free, hormone-free, paraben free, etc (which is all true!).

For use during sex/solo sessions, you can easily flip the cap open with one hand and pour the lubricant. Easy to open and close.

It is not very big, and can be easily transported. It's no bigger than the palm of your hand really.

The only two ingredients are: Cyclomethicone and Cyclopentasiloxane.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Travel friendly

Special Features

It does NOT add any additional sensations which I personally like, as I find the cooling/heating lubricants painful and irritating to my vagina/skin.

It is silicone, so it is silky and lasts for a good amount of time.

Personal comments

This is my go-to lubricant for solo-play, toys, and with my boyfriend.

I really liked it for anal play and anal sex as well; it does not dry up quickly and is silky smooth.

When I run out, I buy more! Fantastic lubricant. I would definitely try it if you're even just remotely interested.
    • Favorite lubricant
    • Multi-purpose
    • Works well with condoms

Experience

I found it to be great at lubricating toys, including anal toys and vaginal toys. It's great for adding a silky smooth touch to just a finger/clit. This works very well for handjobs, vaginal sex, and anal sex. Works very well with condoms.
