Adequate, not Amazing

This lube wasn't a high performer. I think it is certainly adequate as a vaginal lube, but the need to re-apply left both of us less than excited about this one. As far as an anal lube, I'd keep shopping.
Water-based, easy cleanup, nice lube
No warming, needed to re-apply several times, probably not the best option for anal sex

Oh my, this packaging is FAR from discreet. For goodness sake, I says "anal" on the label in capital red letters. I'm almost tempted to repackage it into my own FAA-travel approved bottles just to avoid having my parents potentially see it and start asking questions!

Dispensing System Jo is simple. The packaging is plastic and the top is a plastic push-down button style. I found it easy to use and not particularly messy. This lube was suitable for my sensitive skin. I used it without any problems. It contains the following ingredients: Propyl Paraben, Methyl Paraben, Sodium Carboxy Methyl Cellulose, Acacia Honey type A, Peppermint, Purified Water.

Upon application, I was expecting some sort of warming sensation. I'm not sure what the manufacturer considers warming, but we experienced nothing. And when I say nothing, I mean nada, zilch, zero. That was a bit disappointing, but not exactly a deal-breaker. The addition of peppermint as an ingredient lends a smell that is reminiscent of the herb, but it isn't overwhelming. Though the lube may smell like peppermint, it certainly doesn't taste that way. In fact, the taste isn't great. Though the packaging never touted the product as 'lickable', we were a bit sorry it had such an off taste - especially since we won't be using this for anal sex again.

Speaking of use, we are fairly new to anal sex. There is a fair amount of hesitation and everything we have read stresses that lubrication is extremely important. With that in mind, we may have been overly cautious in ensuring that the application was generous. However, we both felt that additional applications were necessary. The need to re-apply left us less than pleased during the heat of the moment and, unfortunately, ended our experience a little too soon.

One of the upsides of this product is that cleanup is super easy. Since it is a water-based lube, we just jumped in the shower. Interestingly, the water seemed to reactivate the lube, so things were fairly slick all over again - the addition of soap into the mix took care of that though.

All in all, this lube isn't bad, but it failed to perform as expected. While we will use this lube again, it will be for vaginal sex.
Follow-up commentary
I wish there was an ambivalent option -- it does the job, but not in an impressive or amazing way. I'll still use this product, but I am not going to excitedly endorse it.
