Astroglide Product Review

Overall, this product does what it is supposed to do. It is widely available wherever adult lubricants are sold, as well. If you are looking for a water-based lube in a pinch, swing by the nearest grocery store or drug store and pick some up!
Water-based, Easy to Clean
Reapplication, Runny
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This product is used almost exclusively for lubrication during sex or self stimulation. As a water based lubricant, it is safe for use with silicone toys, and it does not leave you with the sticky feeling that some silicone based lubricants can. When used during sex, it will likely need to be reapplied, depending on how long the session goes, and how dry the players are. When used with toys or for self stimulation, this lubricant does not supply any form of additional stimulation; it merely minimizes friction.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of this particular lube is on the runny side. Most water-based lubricants tend to be this way, in our experience. With a little bit of attention, you can get this lube right where you need it, though. Once in place, it can tend to run if you use too much of it. It is certainly slick and smooth in general. It certainly provides enough "glide" to keep things rolling.
    • Smooth
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

I would not recommend this lubricant for any form of oral pleasure. We didn't make it a point to taste it, but I'm sure that it wouldn't be too much better than spit when it comes to oral use -- being that it is a water-based lubricant. The smell is non-existent. There is no noticeable aroma when using this lubricant.
    • No smell


This lube lasts for a good 7-10 minutes, in our experience. Without a condom, the time-span tended to be shorter, as the lube was at least partially absorbed into the skin of the male participant during the first application of the lube. If you are not a fan of reapplication, this lube is certainly not for you.

In terms of cleanup, this lube does not leave you feeling sticky, icky, and dirty at all. Cleanup is easy; a warm rag is all you need. This is our favorite feature of this product, along with the fact that we can use it with our silicone toys!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Dries up too fast
    • Reapply often


The packaging is pretty generic, as you would expect. There are the standard instructions for use, with the applicable warnings. We, of course, suggest you read those warning -- on the off chance that you happen to be allergic to something in the lubricant. As this lube is found in many drugstores, the packaging reflects the brand and size of the bottle very well.

The actual container has a flip top that is relatively easy to use, but it seems to be prone to leaking. We recommend keeping it in a cardboard box with your other lubricants, or in a Ziploc bag, just in case. The lube comes out very quickly, so be careful not to get too much.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Leaky container
    • Travel friendly
Follow-up commentary
We have been using this lube more often, and considering the price and availability, we are going to keep it in stock at all times for use. It is a product that is perfect in almost all situations.

    Interesting that you started coming back to it after finding it mediocre.

    True... As we have tried more and more lubricants, we have found that finding one that is good is a little harder than we thought.
