The Useless Lube

In my opinion, this product is a failure as a lubricant. I find this product to be totally disappointing in its performance to the point of uselessness. I am glad I only purchased the sample size and quite frankly, I cannot recommend this to anyone.

Use

This review is for the 0.17 fl oz / 5 ml sample size. I am not sure what range of uses Sliquid advertises this lube for, but in my opinion its intended use should be for vaginal penetration and nothing else. This product is meant to be used as a one-use sample, so you can decide if you like the lubrication enough to purchase a large quantity of it.

Note: I have no professional credentials to discuss these ingredients with authority. I do so as an amateur, and provide information to the best of my ability. Always consult with a doctor if you have any concerns about any ingredient.

Ingredients:
-Purified Water
-Plant Cellulose from Cotton (used for its thickening and emulsifying ability)
-Aloe Barbadensis (claims to sooth, moisturize, and heal)
-Natural Tocopherols / Vitamin E (antioxidant)
-Cyamopsis / Guar Conditioners (thickens and conditions)
-Extracts of Hibiscus (could be used for flavoring and coloring, has diuretic properties, and has a bunch of claimed benefits in alternative medicine)
-Flax (antioxidant)
-Green Tea (antioxidant)
-Sunflower Seed (moisturizing and smoothing properties)
-Potassium Sorbate (preservative, but only inhibits growth of microorganisms, does not kill them)
-Citric Acid from Citrus Fruits (adds some acidity, pH adjuster, sour flavor, some preservative effects)

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The viscosity of the lube is low enough that it comes easily out of the package without getting stuck, but high enough that it doesn't leak out of the package making a mess everywhere. This lubrication is a slow mover once it gets on to the skin; it stays in place well enough. The thickness of the lube is certainly on the thin side. The texture of the lube once friction is applied feels slightly greasy, and once friction slows down or stops it starts to get stringy, and gets a thick stickiness to it.
    • Greasy
    • Sticky
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

It tastes like glue, or some personal care product you are not supposed to get into your mouth. It is not a very good taste at all, although it is a lighter taste. The smell is a strange aroma that is all over the place to me. I think the strange aroma stems from all the different botanical ingredients they use. It hard for me to pin down the exact smells and taste I am smelling, but I think they possibly come from Hibiscus, Green Tea, Sunflower Seed, or Citric Acid. It is not an aroma I enjoy smelling.
    • Bad smell
    • Light taste

Performance

All things considered, the performance of this lube is terrible. It does not practically function without an auxiliary water source added to it. I understand how water-based lubes get activated and feed off water, but a lube that demands outside water from the first second of use sort of defeats the purpose of grabbing lube in the first place. I also noticed that adding more lube doesn't seem to help the situation; the formula just needs a much higher water content than it is mixed for, or can be reasonably added. It probably has the shortest lube life I have ever experienced. When it does have the necessary fluid for it to work, its feel is mediocre and does not achieve a truly pleasurable feel to it. The best thing about the product is that it cleans up great. When totally dry, it doesn't leave behind any nasty residue.
    • Dries up too fast
    • Reapply often

Packaging

The packaging for this is rather small, because it is just a little sample size. It is two and a quarter inches in height, one and a half inches in width, and has a depth of about a quarter inch. The packaging is made of cardboard and can fit in the palm of your hand. Before opening it, it can fit and travel in just about anything you want, thanks to its size.
    • Travel friendly
