Beauty is only skin deep

My husband and I were both disappointed in this lubricant. We both enjoy adding a little extra something to our play to increase the glide factor and prevent any unwanted friction. While this lube does that for us, it only does it for literally a few minutes and then we have to reapply. We still use it out of necessity for our silicone toys, but we're in the market for a better, less expensive, water-based lubricant.

Use

Luz De La Riva's Simone Extra Slick water-based lubricant can be used during solo or couples play. It can also be used both with condoms, or your toy of choice to reduce friction. It can assist with penetration and create a smooth, slippery surface. This lubricant is not for use during water-time fun (shower, hot tub, pool) as it will quickly dissolve and disperse in the water. While it can be used for anal lubrication, I would not recommend it as water-based lubricants absorb into the skin and have a tendency to dry out more quickly than other varieties (such as silicone or specially formulated anal lubricants). If the lubrication does start to diminish, you can reapply more Simone, or use some water or saliva to reactivate it. This product can be used by those with Paraben and Glycerine allergies as it does not contain either. You can also feel good about using a product that contains no animal ingredients. Also, this product is not tested on animals.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Simone Extra Slick is sort of like the the porridge Goldilocks was after; it's not too thin or too thick... it's just about right. When pumped onto your body, it does follow the rules of gravity and runs across the skin, but at a slow pace. Try to apply it to a flat surface to start if you don't want this to happen. Once rubbed into the desired area, it is very smooth and there is no texture or graininess at all. There is no greasy feeling, although it does leave an almost wax-like coating on your skin after it has dried. I don't notice this as much on my girly bits as I do on my fingertips. It's almost like that waxy feeling that you get between your fingers if you get Pledge on them. It doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky, though. Also, any excess can be wiped off or rubbed in. The lubricant is mostly clear, but it has a slightly cloudy tint in the bottle. It should be shaken before use.



Ingredients: Purified Water (Aqua), PEG 600, Polypropylene Glycol, Alginate, Polyethylene Oxide, Propendiol, Flavor
    • Slick
    • Smooth

Taste / Aroma

This lubricant has no odor that I can detect. I rubbed some into the back of my hand and licked it; it has a very light, non-lingering, taste. There is an initial, almost bitter, artificial taste that quickly fades to nothing. There is no aftertaste. "Flavor" is listed in the ingredients, and I'm not sure why or what this flavor is supposed to be. The product is not marketed for oral use, so I wouldn't recommend using it that way.
    • Light taste
    • No smell

Performance

This product does not last very long, and here is why I only gave it three stars. I only use water-based lubes as a necessity for my silicone toys. I find myself having to reapply this every few minutes. It does not leave me sticky, though; it just seems to disappear into nothingness in a very short amount of time. One plus is the bottle's pump dispenser. It is very easy to depress the pump, and it provides a great way to dispense lubricant without having to worry about dripping, running, screwing and unscrewing a cap, or having to pry open a flip top. This is a good feature as I have to reapply the lubricant regularly! The lubricant also does not leave any flaky, crusty, or colored residue on the skin, so that is a plus. Be careful with the glass bottle as grabbing it with an already lubed hand makes it slippery.
    • Dries up too fast
    • Reapply often

Packaging

Simone Extra Slick comes in a tall glass 3.58 fl. bottle with label stickers on the front and back, a pump dispenser, and a clear plastic top that fits on snugly over the pump. This beautiful little bottle comes nestled inside of a white piece of folded cardboard with cutouts for the top and bottom, which keep it from moving around in the box.



The box is white and has information printed on all sides. The suggestions for use and notes about the product ("paraben free, latex safe and shake well before use") are printed in English, French, Spanish, and German.



The woman on the bottle is naked with her breasts mostly covered by her hair. Her legs and hands are positioned to hide her lady parts. It's a seductive pose, but the bottle could be left with other beauty products and be passed off as a body spray, hair serum, etc.
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

I learned the hard way that beauty is only skin deep with this product. I was attracted to Simone by her lovely locks, high heels, and seductive pose. She further lured me in with her pump top and glass bottle; the picture of elegance. However, her contents are a letdown; they don't "remain extra smooth and slick" as advertised for as long as I want them to.
Follow-up commentary
I've used other water based lubricants that last longer, and that's really what I'm looking for most in a water based lubricant is staying power. I also want them to be safe for our bodies, which this lubricant is. It's also pricey considering I've found other products that work better for me and cost less.
