Didn't everyone buy this when they were 16?

Your run of the mill mass marketed lube. Works well for vaginal use or during intercourse, but that's really about it. It is fairly runny and doesn't work well in the shower. It is water based, so it is compatible for most toys, but I think there are better lubes out there.
Widely available, compatible with all toys.
Price/Value, runny.

useful review
To me Astroglide represents one of the two mass market options for lube, the other being KY. I believe it is one step above KY, but not by much. I am pretty sure most people have tried this product at one point or another in their lives, usually in their teens when your product choices were limited.

Astroglide tended to last longer than KY before it dried up and got sticky, which seems to be a commonality between all water based lubes. I found that it requires less lube when using Astroglide than using KY as well. Efficient Lube-age is always a good thing.

This lube is compatible with all toys as it is water based which makes it a one-stop-shop kind of lube. Its consistency is almost that of water. It is very runny. It didn't perform very well in the shower as it tended to wash off with any contact with water or steam. While this is a good thing when it comes to clean up, it isn't a good thing while you are trying to have some fun.

While I have tried this lube for anal use, I found that it is too thin to effectively work without using half of the bottle. I would suggest this lube more as a lube for use during intercourse or for vaginal use as it perform better in those situations. I also noticed that if this lube gets on fabrics, such as sheets, that it doesn't always wash out in the laundry. So buyer beware!

Astroglide contains Purified Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Aspartame, Methylparaben, Sodium Benzoate. It is unflavored/unscented and comes in two sizes, 2.5 oz and 5 oz.

While I think Astroglide is a good lube, I think it is overpriced in the sense that you can get something equally as good for half the price. If you are looking for a good water based lube, I would suggest ID Glide.
Follow-up commentary
Astroglide is simply mediocre at best. There are much better lubes out there. Unless it's 3 am and the only outlet you have is the grocery store, get something else. You can get something of higher quality for less.. both signs that this product is inferior.

    Great review. You're right that it's very runny. But in fact, it's still my favorite.
