StickyOverall it is a good first lube, it has a good price and it does work. While I wouldn't buy it again, it is a good product for people who don't use lubricant often or want to try it with something less expensive.
It works, good price
The best use for this product is with sex toys, while it does work during regular sex it tends to be kind of messy and ruins the moment. It is safe with condoms so there is no worry there, but since it is water-based you can use it with any sex toy, and I've found it works better in those situations.
It is really sticky, and leaves a weird residue on your hands, and vagina. It is really hard to use, it doesn't come out of the bottle easily and when you get it out it makes a mess. The bottle also leaks and can ruin things around it. The good thing is it doesn't stain the sheets and does wash out of bedding, unlike furniture, which it doesn't come off of easily.
I have never tasted it, and never plan on it. I haven't notice any strong smell, so there is no problem there.
The product seems to last longer on toys then it does during actual sex. I've never needed to reapply during toy time, but we have during sex. It doesn't clean up very well, I can always feel it after sex unless I take a shower, and it stays on our hands for a while, which is very unpleasant.
The bottle leaks and we keep ours in a ziplock bag so if it falls it doesn't ruin everything around it. The packaging also isn't the best for application, it makes it kind of messy. The plus side is the bottle is small and if you put it in something good for traveling.
Follow-up commentary 11 months after original review
I have not bought Astroglide again and have moved on to other lubes I enjoy more. I have learned I enjoy lubes that are less watery and more gel like is probably the best way to word it.
