Almost as good as the real thing!

This lubricant is inexpensive and easy to use. Whether you are a Vegan or not, I believe that you will be satisfied with this product. Being a woman, I can tell you that PH balance is very important, so if you are a guy looking for the "right" lube for use during sex with your woman, you can be assured that you are making the right choice. I can honestly say that everyone should be happy with this lube!
Not tested on animals
PH balanced
Made in the USA

extremely useful review


Water-based lubricants are wonderful, because you can use them with just about every toy material.
I have an extended collection of toys: Silicone, TPR, Plastic and glass. I wanted something I could use on all of them. As you may know, if you have a silicone toy, you should never use a silicone-based lube; it can actually damage and break-down the silicone toy.

UP! is fragrance free, has no strong unpleasant taste, PH balanced, 100% Vegan (no animal ingredients) and not tested on animals. Everything I was looking for! The lube is perfect; it is thick enough to keep from running, but also thin enough to easily spread around you or your toy.

The lube absorbs into the skin very well, which means there is no messy clean up afterwards. I like how it doesn't easily slide down my body and make a mess on the bedding. It stays put pretty well. It is perfect for vaginal intercourse and may work well for anal. It makes for a slick, wet feel and is sure to get you started. I use it most of the time for clitoral stimulation with my toys, but it is a quick and easy way to add a little extra something when you are with your partner.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The lube is not greasy what-so-ever. It is a wonderful lube that stays where you need it to and once dry, there is no sticky residue!

I typically use this lube for easy insertion of my toy and I have even used it in the shower. The lube does not drip easily from your fingers as you apply it, which is a great. I cannot tell you how many times the lube I used before would be gone by the time I squeezed it from the bottle, to the time I placed my fingers on myself.
Just lightly pump the top to get a small bead of gel. If you completely compress the top down, you will get a lot O' lube; About 1 teaspoon. So, watch how much you dispense.

Taste / Aroma

There is no scent from this lube. There is a very slight taste to it, but it goes away quickly and it really is not something that would stop me from sucking my fiancé’s dick if it were transferred there!
    • Light taste
    • No smell


I use about a drop or two, as needed. I rarely have to apply it more often than once or twice during use, so I am very pleased with this item. I have used KY before, which I found to be too watery. UP!, on the other hand, is a good quality product. I can easily grab the bottle and dispense some lubricant with one hand, which is always appreciated! I think maybe I will go for a flavored or warming lube in the future, but I like having the option of a simple, flavor-free one. I definitely would recommend UP! to anyone who wants an inexpensive, PH balanced lube.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting


The bottle itself is small (about 4.5" tall, which makes it easy to store and travel). It is very discreet, because although it says "lubricant", there's nothing to make it too obvious.

The bottle contains 2.6 fl oz (76 ml.) of lube, and trust me, a little goes a long way! I have used just a few drops and didn't have to keep re-applying, like I had to do with other lubes.

UP! is made in the USA and is manufactured by California Exotic Novelties.
The ingredients are as follows:
Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract,
Punica Granatum Extract,
Cellulose Gum,
Tetrasoduim EDTA,
Imidazolidinyl Urea,
DMDM Hydantoin
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Travel friendly

Follow-up commentary
A wonderful lube that I will buy again in the future! I cannot find a single thing that I am unhappy about. A great item at a great price.
