It's not the worst out there. In terms of latex condom safe, extra slippery, oil-free, fat-free, fragrance free, stain-free, tasteless and requiring no after-use cleanup it does the job. In terms of long term use, not so much. For the price there are better lubes out there- although Pjur Aqua may be worth a try.
Safe, non toxic, clean, slippery, fragrance/taste free, silicone free
Needs to be reapplied often.

extremely useful review
I love, love, love Pjur lubes. All of them. I don't care what they cost they are 100% worth it.
Pjur Original Bodyglide is without a doubt my go to lube, I doubt anything will ever come close to matching it's effectiveness. That being said, this topic is on Pjur Aqua, the water based predecessor of the Pjur family.

Being completely honest, it is hard to find a water based lube that, for one, does not lose its effectiveness without having to be refreshed. They are safer then most oil/silicone based lubes, but are never as good in the longevity department. Therefore, they make up for it a lot of the time adding tingle, heat, flavor, etc. This is a straight up Water based lube, no bells or whistles. This is a hard feat for some to compete with, making an all around perfect lube. For Pjur it's usually not, they almost always score in the top 10 for me. No doubt, I hold Pjur up high, and assumed that this was going to be the water based lube for me. I really thought that it wouldn't dry out on me. This was somewhat of a disappointment.

I have in my hand right now (when I am not typing, ha) 8.5 fl oz of which is a staggering $40. It is a tall sleek black cylinder, it has a twist off cap, which is horrible when it comes to lube, and somewhat of a disadvantage. The cap is, luckily, easy to remove, even though it's smooth since it is as wide as the bottle itself. The lube is dispensed through a 1" slightly recessed spout with a small hole. It's basic, there isn't anything special about it- It's just functionality.
Flip the bottle over and the lube flows freely, a little drop at a time, or squeeze for a down pour of water based lube.

The lube is made from:
Aqua(Water) is used as a solvent in which it dissolves many of the ingredients. It also helps to form emulsions thus combining ingredients.
Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture to your skin. It can also be used as a solvent.
Ethoxydiglycol is a synthetic solvent used to thin out products and increase viscosity.
Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltreimonium Chloride is an Antistatic Agent; Conditioning Agent
Hydroxyethylcelloloseworks as many things, adhesive, binder, emulsion stabilizer and a viscosity increasing agent.
Citric Acid is a chelating agent (preservative), and works to adjust the acid/base balance.
Benzyl Alcohol is a pH adjuster, preservative, solvent, viscosity decreasing agent, analgesic.
Methylisothiazolinone preservative.
Methylchloroisothiazolinone is used to prevent or retard bacterial growth.

Ugh. Just ugh. It's not horrible, don't get me wrong. It's not amazing either. It's just sub-par.
As noted on the bottle it is latex condom safe, extra slippery, oil-free, fat-free, fragrance free, stain-free, tasteless, and requiring no after-use cleanup, dermatologically tested for skin and mucous membrane compatibility, toxic free, tasteless. It contains no spermicides. And yes, it does live up to all of these claims. Never does it advertise that it is long lasting. There is no taste at all, no smell, it's not oily and it is slippery. But it dries out-fast, as most water based lubes do, but alas it does refresh with spit or water-luckily.
This in no way shape or form is a jack off lube. If you were to use Pjur Aqua for a hand job you will be dumping $40 down his shaft in no time flat. It lasts without extra moisture, for a few minutes before it feels it has been completely absorbed into your skin.
Using it for vaginal/anal sex is your best bet. It will be able to retain what natural moisture you produce and replenish itself, and last the entire session without needing refreshing. It does glide nicely. It actually has an incedible silky and slight velvety feel to it when it is bountiful. Once dry you won't find a trace of it. It doesn't 'stick' to your skin or feel like anything at all once dried. I don't feel as if I need to jump directly into the shower after using and have no problems waiting it out before showering. Funny thing, is you will feel the left over lubrication on your skin once in the shower even if it's been a few hours. So in terms of long lasting, I suppose it is.
It's not a total bust and will easily wiggle its way into your heart, possibly not your permanent line up as there are comparable lubes out there for a fraction of the cost.
Follow-up commentary
I like this stuff, I just don't love it. I really believe that Pjur could of produced something better then this formula. After all, their original body glide is some serious lube. While this is truly mediocre.
We use it in a pitch (or if it's grabbed in the darkness by accident) and like it just fine, it's just not as amazing as I would of liked it to be, rather-- expected it to be.
