Personal moisturizer - lubricant by LELO - review by Eva Schwaltz

A Gentle Lube That Works Well

This is a slick lubricant that works amazingly well. It is water based so it is compatible with all materials and toys and is great to use for regular sex. There are no harsh chemicals and it is paraben and glycerine free, so it is the perfect choice for those who have reactions to other lubricants.
paraben and glycerine free, Compatible with all materials
Bitter taste, May not last long enough

extremely useful review


Lelo is known for creating products with discreetness in mind. Even though this is called a personal moisturizer, this can be used as a lubricant. It is water based, so it is compatible with all kinds of toys as well as condoms. This lube is not very thick and would not be the best for anal use. It will also just wash away in the shower, but this makes it great for easy clean-up.

This is one of the more gentle lubes out there. It contains ingredients that shouldn’t cause irritation. The ingredients are: Water, Propylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Gurana Extract, Ginseng Extract, Avena Sativa Extract, Polysorbate-20, Aspartame, Polyquaternium-5, PEG-45M, Citric Acid.

As you can tell, there is no paraben or glycerin in the lube. The aloe leaves your skin feeling very soft, and you can use this as a moisturizer as long as you rub it in very well.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

It has the consistency of thin gel. It’s not runny, but it will spread around nicely with your finger. The texture is very smooth and slick enough to easily spread around without being stringy. When it dries, it doesn’t get tacky so you don’t have to feel like you need to wash up right away.

It absorbs into the skin nicely, but if you don’t rub it in, then it may become a little sticky but non-greasy. It dries up faster than some lubes, but it can be reactivated with a little water or some saliva.

Taste / Aroma

There is virtually no smell to this lubricant. When I unscrew the pump top, I can smell a slight sweet smell, but I just barely notice it. The taste, however, is really bitter. If you plan on engaging in oral, then it’s wise to choose something else. It’s probably the aloe and citric acid I can taste the most.
    • Bad taste
    • Light smell
    • Strong taste


This performs very well as a lubricant. A couple of pumps is good enough to get me started, and it blends well enough with my own juices that I don’t need to reapply it. Others may need to reapply it often though. Its gentle ingredients feel great on the skin and doesn’t cause any itchiness or stinging. It’s not an arousal lube so you won’t get any tingling, warming, or cooling sensations from it. It’s just a plain moisturizing lubricant that will help get the job done.
    • Feels natural
    • Reapply often


It comes in a nice cardboard box, packaged like many perfumes and colognes. The box lists the company’s website and the ingredients for the product. I got the 5 ounce bottle of lube, but it also comes in 2.5 if you just want to test it out. The larger bottle is made of glass and looks just like a bottle of perfume on the dresser or nightstand. It has a plastic cap that is not fully enclosed but still protects the pump from accidentally being pressed. I haven’t had any problems with it leaking.
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Recyclable
Follow-up commentary
This lube gets the job done very well. If I already didn't have many other lubes, I would be more than willing to get another bottle of this lube. The texture and slickness is perfect for any toy materials I use with this lube, and I love that it absorbs so nicely.

    I was curious about this product. I sounds very nice. One of the biggest annoyances I have with lubes is that gooey, sticky feeling left behind after I am finished. Great review.

    Great review. I got a sample of this and didn't know what the ingredients were so I avoided it. Thanks for listing them.
