Lifestyles ultra lubricated - male condom by Ansell - review by Jul!a

For When You Need A Little Extra Lube

These condoms won't do much besides add some extra lubrication, but they really weren't designed to do much more than that. They are supposedly thinner than the average condom, but that's not very noticeable with these. However the extra lube is nice and slippery and will last you a while during use.
Lube lasts a long time, Extra head room for a larger head or if friction is wanted
Not for larger guys

extremely useful review
Lifestyles, like most other condom companies, tries so hard to come up with new condoms that will wow us in some manner. This one was intended to add more lubrication overall, and while it does do that pretty well, that's about all it does.

This condom counts as less than average in almost every single way. Most condoms average out at about 7.4" long, 2.04" wide at the base and along the shaft and head, and .0027" thick. These fall short on length at 7.25" and base and shaft width at 1.75", but these condoms feature a 2.25" head and a thickness of .0024".

There's no special texture to these at all, just a smooth condom with a larger head. The thickness might not be noticed at all, but the extra head room is nice for guys with larger heads or if you want the little bit of extra friction. Unfortunately the smaller shaft width makes these a poor choice for girthier guys, or even if you're on the larger side of average. On smaller guys, they stay on very well.

I'm probably a poor judge on the strength of the scent, because most of the time, unless it's really strong I don't really notice it. That was the case here as well. If you get close to it, you might smell something, but I couldn't detect anything off from the package to the penis.

The real draw to this particular condom however, is the lube. Well, the extra lube over most condoms anyway. I had a hard time figuring out exactly what type of lube this used. Some research claimed it as water based, other as silicone. I can tell you that it lasted the entire time we were using it without having to add any extra, and didn't leave either of us feeling extra lube-y in any manner. The lubricant seems to be spread out more on the shaft than on the head, but once his head was in we were good to go.

If you do feel the need to add more lube for whatever reason, stick with water or silicone based because oil based anything can cause the condom to break and that would be bad m'kay? You should also keep these (and any other condoms) in a cool dry location. Not anywhere in the car, not in the wallet you sit on all day, and the bottom of the purse is probably a bad idea too.
These are another on the very long list of condoms that aren't astounding, but don't suck. After asking my husband how they felt for him, he said that they felt like any ol' condom. Nothing special, nothing overly sensitive, but he could still feel through them easily enough. So for him, these aren't anything to write home about. They weren't all that spectacular to me either, but I did really enjoy the extra lube. Since the extra lube is really the whole point of the condom, I'm not going to get hung up on it not doing anything it wasn't advertised to do. The very first time we went to use these, I was a little skeptical to be honest. I've seen and used other condoms that are supposed to have extra lube, and when he first went to enter me and there was some resistance, I figured we'd end up grabbing a bottle in a few minutes. But I was proven wrong! It lasted the whole time we were going at it and didn't leave either of us feeling gross or anything.

Long story short, if you're looking for something that you won't have to add lube to, these are a good choice if you're on the smaller side and not looking for any other features.
