Very Silky Indeed

The texture and lasting power of Liquid Silk make it a solid lube for most any occasion. It's very reasonably priced for the amount and quality of the product you get. An excellent lube, truly the only downfall is the flavor deters oral play after use.

Use

Liquid Silk works well in most any sexual situation you'll find yourself in. It works well as a toy lubricant, both vaginally and anally. Since it's water based, it's not going to damage any of your toys either. It is also excellent for masturbation for both men and women. The pump dispenser is convenient, especially in the moment, because you're not having to fumble around to open a lid or get lube all over the bottle when you need a little more for your play sessions.

I didn't notice any ingredients that commonly cause allergic reactions, but it's worth reading over the list if you've got allergies.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The name of this lube is very fitting. My first choice of words to describe the way it feels would be 'like liquid silk'. It's just got a nice, slick glide to it. It's got a very clean, light feeling. Not sticky or greasy so far. I would say that it's about the consistency of a hair conditioner. It's thick enough to stay where you put it, whether you put the entire pump on one spot or rub it all over a toy.

It's dispensed through a pump, which squirts out a perfect amount for a single use. It's a nice way to dispense water based lubes, which are typically a little runny (in my experience).

Taste / Aroma

The flavor would have to be the only awful thing about this lube. I can't think of anything to compare it to, but it's very unpleasant. My husband says it's bitter and metallic tasting. I would recommend using this after oral play, or avoiding it all together if you enjoy oral sex throughout your sexual encounters.

The scent is very faint, but reminds me of Creepy Crawlers or those gel hands that you played with as a kid. Those toys were usually coated with a lubricant so they wouldn't stick to the packaging they were in, and that is definitely what the smell makes me think of. It's not strong at all, though.

Performance

This lube has endurance! It held up for lengthy masturbation, PIV intercourse and anal play without ever getting sticky, as promised on the label. One pump from the dispenser was enough for most of our sexual efforts. We did find the need to reapply a few times during manual vaginal stimulation, but that was more a matter of preference.

Since it never gets sticky, you can simply wipe up with a towel when you're done. This is excellent if you tend to be too tired to shower after sex or if you just don't have time to after you masturbate.

The best feature of this product is the pump dispenser and the way it adds to the ease of use. Other water based lubes tend to be messy and having to open a bottle and pour them out can get pretty wasteful. Being able to squirt out just enough for most uses is extremely effective and convenient. A little goes a long way, which makes the 250 ML/8.45 oz of lube in this bottle even more appealing.

Packaging

This lube came in its pictured bottle, which is about the size of a small lotion bottle, with a little white tamper proof sticker across the pump. The ingredients and directions are clearly printed on the back of the bottle. The name on the bottle isn't blatantly sexual, so this could be passed off as a lotion if someone wasn't paying attention. That's a nice bonus since it's a little more difficult to store anything that has a pump dispenser on it. It kind of has to be left sitting out on the counter.

I wouldn't recommend traveling with the lube in this bottle because of the pump dispenser. Even though you can squish it back down and twist it to lock it, as with other pump dispensers, you run the risk of having it unlock in your bags and squirt all over your stuff. If you absolutely needed to have this lube with you on a trip, you may want to invest in some travel size containers for shampoo or pack it in a Ziploc bag.

I personally think the bottle is ugly, but I prefer more elegant looking bottles. This just comes in a plain plastic bottle with black block writing.
Follow-up commentary
In the three and a half weeks since we purchased this lube, we have already managed to use about 3/4 of the bottle. We've used it for anal play, sex and mostly manual stimulation. My husband really likes to make sure he's got plenty of lube on his hand when he's stimulating my g-spot so that his knuckles aren't hurting me. This stuff really helps with that.

Keep in mind that we've been using this stuff almost every night because we don't have anything else right now. This lube doesn't have to be reapplied that frequently, we're just using it all the time.

We're going to be trying out a few different lubes since we're almost out. But we'll likely be getting another bottle of this soon.
