Five Lubes, Five Chances

It is nice that you get the opportunity to try out five different lubes. Unfortunately, I only found that two of those particular lubes were enjoyable to use. But the other positive is that I might not like an individual lube made by Mood, but this still gave me the experience to want to try similar lube types from different manufacturers. It is a good pack if you are new to these lubricant types, but I wouldn't suggest picking this up if you are an experienced lube user.

Use

Basically, this pack acts as a product sampler of types of lubricants you might not have tried before. Instead of buying five different bottles of lube, you can buy this sampler that costs the price of one bottle, and give them a try. I think this multi-pack is best suited for people who are new to lubricants. I am not sure how great a purchase it is for an experienced lube connoisseur. If you have already narrowed down your opinions on some of the lube types from the pack, you can give it a pass, but if you are totally a "lube virgin" you might as well give this product a chance.

Note on the following ingredients commentary: I am not a chemist, I do not work in the personal care products industry. I am giving you information to the best of my knowledge and encourage you to research and consult with professionals about any ingredients of interest.

Water Based Ingredients:
-Water
-Propanediol (used as a humectant and preservative)
-PEG-8 (I don't know enough to comment)
-Polyquaternium-7 (not really sure why this is in here. It is typically used for its antistatic properties, and might have antimicrobial properties)
-Hydroxyethylcellulose (used as a thickening agent)
-Diazolidinyl Urea (used as a antimicrobial preservative)
-Sodium Benzoate (preservative, impedes growth of bacteria and fungus)
-Potassium Sorbate (preservative, but only inhibits the growth of micro organisms; it does not kill them)

Warming Ingredients:
-Glycerin (acts as humectant and lubricant and also since it is a sugar alcohol is the active ingredient for the warming sensation)

Sensitive Ingredients:
-Water
-Propylene Glycol (humectant and preservative)
-Polyquaternium-7 (not really sure why this is in here typically used for its antistatic properties, might have antimicrobial properties)
-Hydroxyethylcellulose (used as a thickening agent)
-Panthenol (used for its humectant and moisturizing properties)
-Chamomilla Recuita Flower Extract (used in Herbalism for soothing and bactericidal properties)
-Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (used for claimed benefits from folk/alternative medicine)
-Sucralose (artificial sweetener)
-Diazolidinyl Urea (used as a antimicrobial preservative)
-Propyl Paraben (used for its preservative and antifungal properties)
-Methyl Paraben (used for its preservative and antimicrobial properties)

Tingling Ingredients:
-Water
-Propanediol (used as a humectant and preservative)
-PEG-8 (don't know enough to comment)
-Polyquaternium-7 (not really sure why this is in here typically used for its antistatic properties, might have antimicrobial properties)
-Menthyl Lactate (gives you the tingling feeling associated with menthol)
-PPG-26 Buteth-26 (used for its surfactant and emulsion properties)
-PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil (used for its surfactant and emulsion properties)
-Hydroxyethylcellulose (used as a thickening agent)
-Diazolidinyl Urea (used as a antimicrobial preservative)
-Sodium Benzoate (preservative, impedes growth of bacteria and fungus)

Silicone Ingredients:
-Dimethicone (acting as a lubricant in this case, non-toxic and non-flammable)

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Water Based Consistency - Feels thin and slick. Pours easily and stays in place, but doesn't seem to absorb into skin very well.
Tingling Consistency - Feels thin. Slippery texture.
Warming Consistency - Feels like medium thickness. I found it to be runny when it was straight out of the bottle, but it stays in place after it's worked into the skin, and feels relatively slick.
Silicone Consistency - This lube has some thickness to it. It was super runny when it came out of the bottle. It stays in place once you work it in, but it does feel slightly greasy.
Sensitive Consistency - Thin and really drippy. Pours easily but does get away from you a bit.

Taste / Aroma

Water Based Aroma - I find it to be unscented
Tingling Aroma - Sugary but burnt-type smell, an "ugly cousin" of menthol
Warming Aroma - Personally, to me, it seems unscented
Silicone Aroma - No distinguishable scent, unscented
Sensitive Aroma - Sugary/Alcohol type of scent

Sensitive Taste - Sweet taste, sort of like taffy. Not very good tasting though.
Silicone Taste - No significant taste, doesn't seem like it would be too bad for oral sex.
Warming Taste - Given its warming effects, I am declining to taste it.
Tingling Taste - Given its tingling effects, I am declining to taste it.
Water Based Taste - Doesn't really taste like anything.

Performance

Water Based Performance - Bad performance, dries up too fast and then gets sticky.
Tingling Performance - Terrible performance, no tingling sensation, plus it's really sticky once it deactivates (which happens pretty quickly).
Silicone Performance - Seems to last longer than water based lubes. Cleans up really easily. What I liked about this lube was its low dependency on extra water or fluids for good performance, compared to water based lubes.
Warming Performance - Lasted a long time, I didn't need to reactivate it during use. It cleaned up fine by just wiping it up. It didn't leave a messy residue but my skin felt better with it washed off. The warming sensation is mild but I suppose that is better than it being overbearing.
Sensitive Performance - Alright performance, lasted longer than the water based, but still dried out. Gets sticky and greasy once it dries out. Takes a little extra effort to clean up.

Packaging

This set comes in plastic packaging, like you would see at a store hanging on the rack. Individual bottles have plastic wrap on them. The problem with the bottles is that they have little plastic molded flip caps on them, which are not very secure. I keep the bottles inside the original plastic box for some added protection. They are the right size for travel, but make sure they are stored securely or you might have an open bottle leaking over everything. The packaging and bottles aren't flamboyant in their graphic design but it is kind of hard to pass them off as anything but sex lube, so I wouldn't consider them discreet. Also, I find that the mouths of the bottles are too big and too much lubrication pours out at once.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet

    Thanks guys! I am certainly not in a rush to review another sampler again though, doing 5 mini reviews in a single review is tough.
