Botanically Infused Awesomesauce

Sliquid Organics Natural Gel is an excellent, unbeatable choice for those looking for a good, thick, long lasting lube without the glycerin or parabens so often seen in other lubes. It's rich, slick, and filled with organic botanicals and natural lubrication. It's perfect for the body, and it's environmentally conscious.

Use

Sliquid Organics gel is an excellent choice for anyone looking to break away from the glycerin and parabens in most water based lubes, yet still wanting a thick, gel like consistency to their lubrication. Not only is it free from the things that so often cause infection and irritation, it's loaded with good, organic, botanical ingredients. Sliquid Natural Gel is thick enough for anal sex, slick enough for masturbation, and it's water based, so it can be used with any and every toy you may own.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This lube is clear and thick, rather like a hair gel but without the stickiness or funky smell. It applies easily without dripping and tends to stay where you put it, yet spreads effortlessly.The press top lid allows you to squeeze out as much as you want yet controls the amount so that you don't end up dumping out a huge dollop that would go to waste.

You definitely don't need a huge dollop. This Natural Gel is quite slick for a water based lube without the overly slick feeling you sometimes get from silicone. It's quite a bit nicer than most gels I've tried. It doesn't feel gloopy or cheap and, in fact, feels rather luxurious for a water based product.

It also lasts quite a long time without losing it's slickness, especially with vaginal use when natural lubrication helps to reactivate it.

Taste / Aroma

Sliquid Organics Natural Gel, being botanically infused with organic extracts of hibiscus, flax, green tea and sunflower seed, has an herbal sort of smell and taste to it. The scent is not overwhelming or even what I'd call strong; just a hint of green, herbal goodness that neither adds to nor detracts from the experience. The taste is also quite herbal and, while not horrible, it's not something I'd use intentionally for oral sex. It lacks the sweetness of glycerin based lubes and has a hint of bitterness to it. It's not enough to prevent oral sex but it's not exactly pleasant or tasty either.

Performance

I was really quite impressed with how long lasting the Sliquid Natural Gel is. It's not ideal for male masturbation as it does tend to get a little sticky, then dry out without the addition of water, but for female masturbation and vaginal sex it is quite good. The addition of a woman's natural lubrication helps keep the Sliquid from drying out. I found it to be fair for anal sex. It does get a bit dry after awhile, and the anus has no natural lubrication to aid in keeping it slick but the addition of a bit of water or spit will cure that problem. I don't recommend adding more lube. Add water, yes. But more lube, no. Adding more tends exacerbate the problem rather than fix it.

Clean up of this lube is exceptionally easy. It seems to get a little bit sticky/tacky as it begins to dry but doesn't flake or leave a coating on your body if you can't wash it off immediately. When you do wash it off, a damp washcloth does the trick with just a swipe or two.

Packaging

I have a thing for bottles and I love, love, love the bottles the Sliquid Organics line comes in. They are dark brown, thick, recyclable plastic, with a press top lid, and a subtle label that goes with the organic theme. Simple, tasteful and very natural looking.

It really looks a lot like any higher end natural health and beauty product. In fact, the fact that it's a lube is unlikely to be noticed by anyone looking at the bottle unless they look very closely.

Personal comments

This is the second in the Organics line that I've tried, the first being the natural stimulating lube. (EF doesn't carry it yet. Boo) I was very impressed with both - which is saying a lot as I'm absolutely not a fan of water based lubes, and wouldn't bother owning any if it weren't for all the silicone toys in my box.
Follow-up commentary
Recently, I had a cervical cone biopsy and LEEP procedure done. If you don't know what that is let's just say it put me out of sexual commission for six weeks and had me quite nervous to stick anything foreign in my vagina for awhile.

The first few times we had sex after getting the go ahead I immediately grabbed for this lube. Normally, I only use silicone for PIV sex as it lasts as long as I need it to so I was quite surprised to find the Sliquid Organics gel lasted a good, long time. I'd forgotten how nice it was since I so rarely use water based lubes once I've finished a review on them. I keep them on hand for use with silicone toys and tend to judge them based on performance with those toys.

Sliquid gel deserves better. It deserves penis sex use. It really does.

I may not reach for it all the time but I definitely won't be forgetting again that it performs well in an arena where many water based lubes fail.

    That pretty much exactly matches up with my findings when I reviewed it.

    I agree that adding water is better than adding more lube when it starts to dry out, but when you don't have water within reach and you're sooo close to being done and you just want to finish... well, adding lube can work in that case. ;-)

    Excellent review. It sounds like a solid product! This was next on my "to try" list. However, I'm concerned that this particular lubricant contains Phenoxyethanol, or Rose Ether. A quick search comes up with a few studies concerning toxicology breakdowns of this ingredient. Though it seems there is still a large amount unknown about Rose Ether, it is stated in various sources that it may be hazardous if swallowed. For this reason I'd like to caution against using it in oral stimulation. There is also a warning that it may be hazardous if absorbed through skin, but I couldn't find enough sources to back up that statement.

    A word of caution: Just because a product is organic doesn't mean it's safe. "Organic" beauty & cosmetic products have no regulations to adhere to, unlike Organic produce or meat. A brand can flaunt the word "organic" or "all natural" all they want, and still contain potentially harmful substances in their soap, shampoo, makeup, and yes, even lube. Just a word to the wise.

    Excellent review! I need a product that's free of all the major chemicals, esp parabens, and has a variety of other specific properties (for example, non-staining, a little slicker than most water-based lubes, long-lasting, etc) & this answered every single question I had about the product. Thank you SO much! This is now one of two I'm considering and is the front runner atm. )

    I'm completely convinced by this review! It's hard to find a water based, glycerin and paraben free lube that actually lasts--this stuff sounds great! Thanks so much
