Like a wintery Slip 'n Slide.

Chilly? Yes! Slippery? You bet! Silicone lubes are some of the greatest out there (except for the fact that they don't get along with silicone toys). This lube lasts as long as you need it to, absorbs into the skin eventually and leaves you soft instead of sticky, and provides a nice cooling sensation that heightens sensation. If you're looking for something new and different it's certainly a good bet.
Long-lasting, no sticky feeling, latex compatible, wonderful glide, moisturizing.
Watery, cooling sensation doesn't last long, can't be used with silicone

extremely useful review


Tired of how sticky water-based lubes can get? Want to totally avoid glycerin and parabens? Don't you hate how quickly those water-based ones dry up quickly and how they're not usually slippery enough for anal? Silicone lube is the answer. It provides a highly slippery glide that never gets tacky, doesn't contain irritating ingredients, and stays nice and slick for ages. It doesn't leave behind gross lube residue, either. How wonderful! Use it for toys (non-silicone, of course), girls and boys, and for putting things in your butt. It also doubles as a massage oil! It's not that great for oral, but it won't really hurt if you end up eating some. Oh, and you can trust this stuff to stay super slick and right where you want it during your showertime romps, too.

The only downside of silicone lubes is that they can't be used with silicone toys and that's a huge bummer for us toy snobs who insist on everything being silicone. Why is everything made of the stuff so awesome but incompatible? Silicone lubes can break down silicone material and leave it with a permanently tacky feel to it. Yuck. Although, according to Em and Lo in the book Sex Toy, you don't have to worry about this happening with 100% silicone toys, but that's a risk I'm not sure I'm willing to take. (I did get some on my MiMi accidentally and it's still good as new.)

What's great about this lube is the cooling feature. Why is cooling cool? In my experience, it does a wonderful job at increasing sensastion and stimulation. It really does ramp things up in the pleasure department. The cooling ingredient, peppermint oil, is what you find in a lot of the clitoral stimulating gels. I'm also the sort of girl who thinks ice cubes are super sexy, so go figure. It's super fun and I put my seal of approval on it.

Here's what's in here:

Dimethicon, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Mentha Piperita(peppermint) Extract, Herbal Blend, Tocopheryl Acetate

I have no idea what the "herbal blend" is, but the rest of it is your peppermint extract and silicone compounds. So much simpler than water-based formulas and it shouldn't cause anyone problems in the sensitivity department.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The only thing I'm not crazy about when it comes to silicone lubes (aside for their hatred for silicone toys) it that they're so watery and messy sometimes. This stuff is pretty much like water. Super thin and drippy and it makes application slightly tricky because it wants to run everywhere, but it does make things slippery even when it's doing this. It's not something you can easily grab a dab of in the heat of the moment with the lights out. Spill ALL the lube! The upside of the silicone formula is that it doesn't leave you with gross lube hands like some of the water-based ones do. They're gonna feel pretty slick, but not icky.

Well, as for texture, we're gonna stick with words like slick, slippery, slidy, and smooth. It's not velvety at all and has no drag whatsoever. This is why it's wonderful for anal even though it's rather thin. That glide lasts for quite a while, too, so you're not going to have to reapply it. It never gets gummy, sticky, tacky, or anything like that.

Taste / Aroma

I really didn't notice any smell to this stuff. I suppose if I stuck some in my nose there'd be a slight peppermint smell from the extract, but it's nothing you'll notice during use. My hands never smelled like it, nor did anything else.

I actually had a customer ask me if silicone lube was edible. This had never crossed my mind before so I had to do some research. I mean, they don't generally make any flavored silicone lubes. What I read is that there are basically three classifications of lube: edible, digestible, and non-digestible. Edible ones are your flavored stuff, digestible are your water-based and some oil-based formulas because they do get broken down by the body, and silicone lubes are non-digestible. They're basically like swallowing chewing gum. As for taste, basically like the smell, it might be a slight bit peppermint-like, but nothing serious or even that detectable.

    • No smell
    • No taste


This stuff will stay with you for a while without having to keep the bottle handy for reapplication. Aside from being watery and drippy, it works incredibly well and provides a long lasting glide which is always a good thing.

Now on to the cooling stuff about it. I had used this once before and I remember being shocked at how intense the chilly feeling was and how it made things much more pleasurable. Like, lots and lots and lots. That was with a human companion. The last few times I've used it recently it really hasn't been as intense and this is with my toy friends. It does provide a slight bit of chilliness, but not as much as I remembered. Maybe this was due to toy vs. human, maybe? It's still pretty enjoyable though. Once applied to your specific areas it immediately goes into effect and you feel a wonderfully pleasant coolness down there. Like some of these sensation lubes, it seemed to be more apparent on the outer regions rather than the internal ones. It did immediately started to taper off and was pretty much gone about 5 minutes into it. I was quite the sad girl.

After play, you will still feel a bit of slickness until you wash it off. I decided to do a test run and not wash it off immediately. There really wasn't anything unpleasant about it, though. I got some all over my hands because of the drippiness of it and about an hour or so later my hands weren't the least bit slippery anymore and actually felt quite moisturized. A couple of hours later there's no residue anywhere and everything is nice and happy.

If you do feel the need to wash it off you can either use a moist wipe, a dab of some soap and water, and a simple dry cloth works well to cut down on the slickness of it, too.
