Frustratingly Good for a Bad Product!

This lube is fantastic for anal and vaginal penetration and for stimulating any area of the body. However, I still don't think it's worth the breast cancer linked to its ingredients, and the smell and taste were definitely a let down. Beware, it does look like semen, so if that's not your thing go for another lube.
Absorbs into skin.
Not too runny.
Contains parabens!!
Strong chemical smell and taste.

Liquid Silk by Bodywise LTD is a lovely, slick, non-sticky, water-based lube that would be perfect for vaginal or anal use if it weren't for the ingredients, among which are four different parabens, which have been linked to breast cancer.

It looks a little like semen, as it's semi-translucent and white, which could be good or bad depending on what you're into. Personally, this along with its poor taste and smell is one of my biggest issues with Liquid Silk.

This is the first lube I ever used (I stole it at the age of nine or so off a relative), and it really does feel like liquid silk, doesn't dry out to quickly, and isn't sticky on the skin. If I didn't have such high oestrogen levels I might use it anyway.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Silky really does describe this lube well and it is easily the nicest in terms of texture that I've ever used. It's smooth and slick and is dispensed by a pump in this case (you can get it in handy sachets if you're going out of town) and barely runs as it has a creamy consistency, meaning you can't really pour it.

Liquid Silk really doesn't feel sticky or greasy, but absorbs into the skin after a while (it usually lasts me about 10-15 minutes before I need to reapply) leaving it soft and moisturized.

Taste / Aroma

Unfortunately, this lube is definitely not to be used for oral sex, because it tastes bitter and unpleasant and has a moderately strong smell somewhere between shampoo, silicone sex toys and nappy rash cream.

If anything is not going to make going down on someone more appealing, it's this, because I wouldn't want it near my mouth and the chemical smell of it makes me less likely to want it near my genitals, either.
    • Bad smell
    • Bad taste
    • Strong taste


Liquid Silk lasts a decent length of time depending on what you're using it for. For anal penetration I tend to reapply it about every ten to fifteen minutes, and for clitoral stimulation about every fifteen minutes.

I usually wash or wipe this lube off, as I do with all lubricants as I hate the feeling of being wet once I'm no longer aroused. It comes off very easily with just water, although if this is not an issue for you then it really doesn't need washing away at all and will absorb into your skin leaving it lovely and soft, and it's neither greasy nor sticky.

I really just love the feel of Liquid Silk. This product feels wonderful against your skin, and makes everything a little more sensitive.

The smell and taste are really unfortunate, as well as the quantity of parabens it contains which is why I can't give it five stars.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Contains parabens
    • Feels natural


The packaging for Liquid Silk is fairly discreet, and someone would have to pick up the bottle and read it to know what it contains. The instructions were just the usual "apply desired amount to genitals or condom", which is adequate for lube as most people can use it.

The bottle is a little big for travel, and I would suggest buying sachets off it instead. It does however have a good pump which always gives out a good quantity, not too much, not too little.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense

    Good job on your first review! Thanks for mentioning how long it lasts for different uses. I hate lubes that taste nasty, so I think that I'll be sticking with my Sliquid Sea!
