Sliquid Silver = Slippery

Sliquid Silver is super slippery. It's great for the shower, longer sessions, or for use with glass, metal and hard plastic toys. However, due to it being made out of silicone, it is incompatible with certain toys like jelly and most silicone. It is also harder to clean up, so it really does not have a place in our toy collection. I will keep it for latex lingerie though.

Intro
Silicone lube is great for certain uses. If you plan on playing in the shower, grab some silicone lube; it won't wash off with just water. If you are planning on an anal session, go grab a silicone lube; it will last longer than a water-based lube, so you can enjoy more anal play before having to reapply. But if you are planning on using silicone toys or toys like the Fleshlight (which is made out of Superskin material), do not grab the silicone lube because silicone lube on silicone toys will make for a very sticky mess, and it will ruin your toys.

Many years ago when my wife and I first started having sex, we bought our lube at the local CVS. It was Vagisil brand, but not the best stuff in the world. Having read some good things about Sliquid on another website, we decided to purchase a bottle of their Sliquid H2O. Unfortunately, they sent us the wrong bottle, which turned out to be the Sliquid Silver. Since this had just been sent across the country, we decided not to make a fuss out of it, but to keep the Silver and place an order for the H2O at a later date. That is how this silicone-based lube came to be in our possession. I don't remember how long we have had this bottle of lubricant, but I would guess it has been at least three years. There is still plenty left in there -- just under half of the four-ounce bottle.

Silicone Lube Positives
There are many benefits of a silicone lube over a water-based lube. A silicone lube will typically last longer, so you will not have to reapply as often during a session. If you are in the shower while using the lube, the water will not rinse away your lube and just leave you "in the dry."

Silicone Lube Negatives
We have never been a big fan of this silicone lube for a few reasons. First, because it is silicone, it is a little more difficult to clean off at the end of a session. Second, we don't really need silicone lube for use in the shower because we never use lube in the shower; so that benefit is null and void. Third, there is the inability to use a silicone lube on many of our expensive toys, like a Fleshlight or a silicone dildo. Certain silicone toys that are made out of high-end silicone might be compatible with the lube. But you would first need to do a patch test on the bottom of the toy, or just somewhere that would not get inserted, to see if the toy would have a negative reaction to the lube. Not being able to use a silicone lube on a silicone toy gets frustrating when you have either already used the silicone lube and can't use a certain toy or while reaching for a lube at the beginning of a session and you have to think, "Am I going to pull out my Lelo Ella to use on my wife later?" Due to its lack of compatibility with our silicone toys, this lube became less and less popular with us as our toy collection grew.

Bottle Design and Ingredients
The bottle is a clear four-ounce (or 120-milliliter) bottle with a push top. The top is black, so if you have multiple bottles of Sliquid lube, it is slightly easier to find the one that you are looking for. Unfortunately, this bottle is not the greatest for travel. The last time we used this lube was when we visited Atlanta and packed it in our bag. Luckily, we had placed the condoms and lubricant in a zip-lock bag -- because the bottle decided it wanted to leak. It leaked all over the condoms and its own bottle to make a very sticky mess that, because it is made out of silicone, was not the easiest to clean up. This is the second time that one of the Sliquid bottles has leaked on us during travel, so beware of that. And if you place it in your carry-on bag when you are flying, you risk having the bottle confiscated because it is over three ounces. Since that visit, we have not used this lubricant once. It has just sat in the corner of the bathroom. The only reason we kept it was so I could write this review. Now that this is finished, it is probably going into the trash -- not because it was a horrible product, but because my wife and I just do not have the need for a silicone-based lube.
Experience
Continued

On the front of the bottle, it says Sliquid Silver Intimate Lubricant; so it is not discreet if you were to leave it out. On the back side of the bottle, it has a few bullet points with important information. It says that Sliquid Silver is an ultra-concentrated silicone lube that is hypoallergenic and scent-free, waterproof and non-toxic, latex friendly and loves rubber, ideal for sensual message, and formulated to last longer than most Hollywood marriages. Sliquid Silver isn't meant for use with other silicone products or for use as a spermicide. The only three ingredients listed on my bottle are dimethicone, dimethiconol, and cyclomethicone. At some point in the last few years, they redesigned the bottle to now be 4.2 ounces (or 125 milliliters), and they changed one of the ingredients. On their website, they now list the ingredients as dimethicone, dimethiconol, and cyclopentasiloxane. Their website also says that the lube is vegan friendly, plastic friendly, and glycerin and paraben free.

Lube itself
Testing the lube, it will drip out of the bottle when I hold it upside down. When I poured it into my hand, the lube did start moving if I tilted my hand. However, when holding my hand upside down for one minute, the lube formed a small ball that was trying to drip off, but it never got very far at all. I then rubbed it into my hands, and it took probably around 45 seconds before I stopped feeling a difference. However, it never fully absorbed and just stayed there as a little mess. It says on the bottle that it can be used for message, but I have never tried it on myself or on my wife. And with the way it felt on my hands, if I did use it on my wife, she would probably want to take a shower afterward. It felt greasy on my hands, and I did not like the feeling.

Thinking about it, I might keep this lube for a little bit longer -- not because I would be using it for sex, but because it can be used with latex garments. With latex garments, you need to use silicone lube for polishing the item, and it can also be used for an aid in getting the garment on, to prevent ripping out every single body hair along the way.

Summary
Overall, I am going to give this lubricant four stars. I am going to deduct a star because of it being silicone, for not being compatible with all toys, and because of the leaky bottle top. Other than those negatives, I really don't have anything bad to say about this lube.
Follow-up commentary
I threw this bottle out a month ago. I was keeping it to use with latex garments in the future, but my wife and I figured out that she is allergic to latex, so when we moved, this got the heave-ho. My wife and I just really don't have a need for a silicone lube.

    Interesting perspective and review! I've heard silicone lube is good for shaving and restoring cracked leather. Haven't tried it yet; I'm just shopping for my first silicone lube, something to use with glass anal toys. Is this lube thick, or thin?
