Silky as Promised

Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to lube, and you discover yours mostly through trial and error. So my advice is to give Liquid Silk a try if you're looking for a good, versatile lubricant. It's a great compromise between other, tacky/sticky water-based lubes and the expensive and ever-slick silicone-based varieties. I would/will buy again!

extremely useful review
I bought this lube for the first time about a year ago and have avoided using anything else since.

My favorite thing about it is that it doesn't run, which is a big plus when it comes to anal play. Also the smell is fantastic- that is to say, there isn't one! It advertises itself as being non-tacky, which is very true. It is thick enough that it stays where you put it and it lasts quite a while, staying super smooth the entire time. Once the lube has run dry it just feels like you recently applied lotion to your body- it doesn't have any tackiness, nor the retained slickness that pure silicone lubes impart.

Silicone-based lubes are definitely smoother, but the consistency of Liquid Silk is quite admirable for a water-based lubricant. That being said, there are minute amounts of silicone present in this that give it the trademark silky texture that the name implies. I have not had any problems with this reacting with my silicone toys, nor have I met anyone who has, but it is always a good idea to do a spot-test on the base of your toys before use.

A huge plus of this product is the easy pump handle of the bottle. Personally I find that one pump gives me the perfect amount of lube, greatly eliminating the risk of "too much", although this is obviously dependent on preference. Additionally, the limited dispersal of this does allow the lube to be directly applied to a target area, so you can avoid the problem of messy hands as well!

An unfortunate con to this design is that the pump handle makes this lube rather difficult to travel with. If you do need a lube on the road, I would suggest this in a smaller, more portable container, or perhaps a different lube altogether (just to spice things up)!

While I did not have a problem with it, my partner was initially perturbed at the appearance of this lube. To be perfectly frank, it has an uncanny resemblance to semen in both consistency and color. One it is spread out this resemblance all but disappeared, but it is something to keep in mind if your partner is for some reason hesitant about lube use. Even if it is something that unnerves you, you'll probably grow accustomed to this very quickly.

While some might consider this expensive for a water-based lube, I would consider this product worth the value. You really do get what you pay for, and this is not an area in your life that you should be skimping out on!
Experience
Once again, this depends on preference, but I usually find that a little goes a long way with this lubricant. Despite being water-based, it also worked alright in the shower, which I wasn't expecting, but was a definite plus in my book!
Follow-up commentary
If I could give this higher than 5 stars, I would. I've played around with different lubes in the time since I first bought Liquid Silk, but I keep coming back to this. It's the best, most natural-feeling lubricant I've found to date. I am strongly considering just buying it in bulk and keeping it around for the rest of my days. It was one of the best purchases I've made, and the best lube I've ever tried. If you are even slightly considering buying this lubricant, do yourself a favor and just go for it!
