Silk N Slide

Smooth and silky, this water based lubricant is a must have for my toy chest. I love the easy dispense top and keep it by my bed ready for action. Safe to use with toys and condoms, this is truly a universal lubricant.

Use

Liquid Silk, by Bodywise Limited, is a great lubricant that can be enjoyed by most. The product does contain glycerin, which can cause a UTI or aggravate a yeast infection if you or your partner is prone to them. While the bottle states that the product is water based, the lubricant does contain dimethicone (full ingredient name is Polydimethylsiloxane) also known as silicone oil. It can be used vaginally or anally with most toy material's, silicone may react. As a water based product, it did not hold up well in the shower or other water environments. The lubricant also contains four different types of parabens, so steer clear of this product if you or your partner are sensitive to these ingredients. Liquid Silk is nice and slick, staying put for your longer play sessions, and leaves you feeling silky smooth and wanting more.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Liquid Silk is opaque white and reminds me of a persons natural fluids. The pump top applicator makes dispensing the product mid-session quick and easy. The pump also allows you to control how much lubricant you dispense. While the lube is very thin in texture a little bit goes a long way. It mingled nicely with my natural fluids making everything very slippery, great for sex and toy play. The test patch I did on my hand, when dried, left behind a shiny residue. During sex and toy use, I found the lubricant absorbed nicely and no sticky or greasy residue was left behind.
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

Liquid Silk is definitely not designed to be an oral lubricant. None of the ingredients will harm you if ingested, but I wouldn't suggest you squirt this in your cereal if you run out of milk. The lubricant has a very bitter taste to it which was only detectable if licked directly after application. Liquid Silk does have a scent to it, and reminded me of children's bubbles. The scent was very faint and only detectable when I stuck my nose in the lube bottle.
    • Light smell
    • Strong taste

Performance

The very first time I used Liquid Silk, I pushed way too hard on the pump top and shot about a teaspoon of lubricant all over my newly washed sheets. Lucky for me this lubricant cleans up very easily and does not leave any trace or stain behind. I used this product both vaginally and anally, but because of its thin texture the lube stood up better when used vaginally. I tend to dry out rather quickly and usually need to reapply lubricants often. Not the case with Liquid Silk, I only needed to apply it once, at the beginning of each session. The lubricant absorbed nicely during play and sex, and wipe down with warm water and a wash cloth after was all I needed in terms of clean up. I tried Liquid Silk with a varied of toy materials, as well as with my partner. I found it worked well with PVC, Rubber, TPR Silicone, Jelly, as well as soft and hard plastics. This product is also safe to use with condoms and other latex products.

This product does contain four different types of parabens, so if you have a sensitivity avoid this. Another worry was the ingredient Dimethicone, which may contain silicone oil. I did test this product out on one of my toys, a TPR silicone blend, and found it caused no reaction. If you are at all worried test the product out on part of your toy, or avoid using this product completely with silicone based toys.

Packaging

Liquid Silk comes in a 8.45 FL.oz bottle with an easy dispense pump top. The front features the name of the product, Liquid Silk in large letters. Also listed is the company name, Bodywise, and a little slogan; "The subtle art of making people fit together and reducing friction in relationships" and "Luxury non-tacky water based sensual lubricant". It definitely drew me in and made me want to try it out ASAP. On the back of the bottle is a full list of ingredients (see performance section) an expiration date, and all of their contact information. This included their telephone number, a fax number, and email address. Liquid Silk is manufactured by Bodywise Limited in the UK.
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Very informative packaging
Follow-up commentary
I would love it if my body agreed with me on this lube but unfortunately it doesn't. When using the product it feels natural and worked really well for me with with my toys and with my significant other. But when I used it regularly I found my body getting irritated and angry with me. I'm not sure if this is a parabon reaction or if its just my body not being a fan of long term exposure but either was I had to switch to a different lube for my main uses. I still use this lube just not as any every day product.
