I Looked at the Ingredient List... Regrets Everywhere.

This is one to skip. I have never seen so many chemicals in my lubricants normally. Most of the time, the chemicals I've seen are the filler ones like '____ extract' or some sort of flavoring. I was surprised the sensitive one had Sucralose, a sugar substitute, and tons of parabens. On top of this, these are all pretty mediocre.

This is one of the only sampler packs I've seen here. It's great for beginners who don't know what they like in lubricants. It contains one of each type: water-based, silicone, warming, 'tingling' aka cooling, and a sensitive lube. Unfortunately, 1oz isn't a lot to be experimenting with or to know what you like from that, but it does give you a taste.

Getting this, I really liked the minimalistic packaging. It was really cute and came just like I thought it would, which sometimes isn't the case. Each of these are flip-top, so it might be a bit easy to spill it compared to a pump or the button to open and close type.

Trying these out, these are a bit thin. They don't have a flavor aside from the normal chemical flavor of all lubricants. The silicone one had no flavor whatsoever and reminded me of a thin layer of Vaseline, or oil-slick. The sensitive and tingling ones, while they didn't dry up quickly, quickly turned into a sticky mess. The water-based was less sticky, but clearly dried up a bit faster than it should. The warming and tingling lubes barely do as they should. That's great for the warming one because I'm sensitive to that, but for the tingling I was VERY disappointed.

The interesting thing about these is that their ingredients were all completely different.

Water-based: Water, Propanediol, PEG-9, Polyquaternium-7, Hydroethylcellulose, Diazolidinyl, Urea, Sodium Benzoate Potassium Sorbate
Silicone: Dimethicone
Warming: Glycerin (That was apparently all it was. I'm serious; the only ingredient on the label of the warming lube was glycerin)
Tingling: Water, Propanediol, PEG-8, Polyquaternium-7, Mentyl Lactate, PPG-26 Buteth-26, PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Diazolidinyl Urea, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate
Sensative: Water, Propylene Glycol, Polyquarternium-7, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Panthenol, Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Panthenol, Sucralose, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

I know most people are concerned with the glycerin being a concern for yeast infections. I feel although the sensitive doesn't have that particular sugar alcohol, it does have Sucralose, which is a sugar substitute like Splenda. It has the risk of being a carcinogen. For a sensitive lube, this seems a lot more dangerous than the rest.
I'm also sure we all saw the word "urea," and from health and biology class, that's the stuff our body expels through our excretory function and is in urine and sweat. I regret licking this after seeing that on the ingredient label, for sure. I'm not sure if the water-based one is just urea, or diazolidinyl urea and they misplaced a comma since I noticed "Sodium Benzoate Potassium Sorbate" might be separated as well. They made a few comma errors on their ingredient list, but it's still a lot of chemicals in a lubricant. Most of my other lubricants don't have THIS much, even if they have a lot.

    Thank you, Arcaneblast! I agree that parabens and Sucralose do not a "sensitive lube" make.

    Thanks for the review! I'm glad I skipped over this sampler pack. I can't believe there are parabens in the sensitive lube.
