Not a Gentle Moment for Me!

"Hypoallergenic" does not always mean it won't burn when it comes to extremely sensitive users. I will continue my search for a lube that doesn't cause irritation.

Use

ID Moments is a water based formula and therefore can be used with any type of toy. It can be used both vaginally and anally, but is not the best choice for anal lubrication. If you are playing in water, it is water soluble, so it won't do it's job. You should opt for silicone lube for water play. Reminder: never use silicone lubricant with silicone toys.

It is glycerin and paraben free for those out there with chemical sensitivities or allergies that can result in burning and irritation. It is not "gentle" for everyone though. It may be the propylene glycol causing irritation and burning in some users like myself.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

When I first poured some out in my hand and then rubbed it around my labia and onto my man's penis, the consistency felt good. It is just the right amount of slippery and wet. Then I found myself wanting to wipe it off of my hands. Luckily no stains were left on the sheets.

Taste / Aroma

Hypoallergenic would suggest scent and taste free and is advertised as unflavored. Yet "flavor" is in the ingredient list. The taste reminded me of flavored massage oils, sweet for a second, then a bitter aftertaste. It does not say one way or the other on the bottle if it is safe to ingest. I wouldn't recommend it as it is not pleasant. The scent of green apple fills the air ever so slightly with ID Moments. I actually enjoy the smell, but it makes me leery because products for sensitive skin do not usually contain any scents.

Performance

When applied externally to myself or partner, it provided just the right amount of moistness. It made masturbation more pleasurable and visually appealing. We both like the wet look. I did feel the need to thoroughly wash up after.

Packaging

The lid is pop top, so you can't lose the lid. The bottle points out that the water based formula makes it safe for use with latex, such as latex condoms. It can be reapplied or reactivated with water.

Personal comments

I used to think "lube"...I don't need that! Then I experienced what it was like to be on the birth control pill and lose my natural lubrication. So I had no choice but to explore the wide variety of lube available. At first it was very uncomfortable for me emotionally to have to reach for that bottle in the heat of the moment. I got over it.

Now that I am no longer on the birth control pill, my juices flow like a river again. Out of the experience I have found the many benefits of personal lubricant. It makes toy play so much better. Even if you don't think you need it, try it! The difference will delight you. Then there are those nights that my lover and I can way outlast my bodies natural ability to produce lubrication. No reason to stop the marathon, just grab some lube.

I am now slowly exploring anal play and therefore lube will be a regular standby. I am thinking of trying a petroleum based lube for anal play, though it shouldn't be used vaginally or with non-latex toys.

Experience

A few drops on my clit, and I was ready to go to town putting on a show for my man. It made rubbing my clit and labia feel very smooth and was a great turn on for us both. The soft wet feel further put me in the mood.

When it came time for penetration, I rubbed some on my man, sensually rubbing it in and enjoying seeing him all oiled up. I put a few more drops at my opening, and it was time. He slid inside me, the first few strokes feeling so good. Then it started to burn. My sensitive skin wasn't even up for the hypoallergenic lube. It seemed fine while on the outside, but once it hit the more sensitive skin, the burning was so bad we had to stop and I had to go wash it off with soap and water.

My male partner did not have any sensitivities to it, not even anally. Although water based lube is not the best choice for anal play. I on the other hand, experienced even more severe burning when trying it anally.
Follow-up commentary
During anal play with my male partner, he experienced the same severe burning I had experienced.

I wish I could change my rating to zero or one star.

    Irritation? Yeah, I just don't want that in my lube. That'd be annoying.

    Sorry this lube caused such pain. I'm not fond of the ID lube much either.

    However, I wouldn't recommend a petroleum based lube for anything, anal or not. It can clog pores and cause problems for many people.

    There are good water based lubes that work well for anal play. Sliquid H2O Ride, LELO Personal Moisturizer, "Anal Lube" (brand name) as well as Astroglide Anal Shooters are all water based and all do well for anal sex and anal play. The first two on this list are glycerin free, the second two have glycerin added. I've found they all perform well for anal play with no problems.

    My current favorite lube, which Eden doesn't carry as of the last time I checked, was AstroGlide Naturals. I have experienced absolutely no reaction and it has no scent.

    Welcome to Eden. Good review!

    I'm shocked this lube was so painful for you. I generally don't have problems with this lube even though most lubes give me problems. I hope you can find something that works better for you.
