Astroglide glycerin and paraben free - water based lube by BioFilm - review by ashxxx

Great as a basic lube

Astroglide is great for your basic lubricant. It is a staple because of this, but isn't anything fancy. It may dry up quickly if you need it for an extended period of time, but for most situations it works well.
Very lubricating, smaller container, little smell, clear liquid
Not good for oral, sometimes dries up quickly

useful review


This product seems best for use for intercourse, vibrators, or dildos. I have used it with a silicone vibrator and for intercourse. It works well with making the in and out motions of each activity much easier.
    • Masturbation
    • Sex

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This lube is rather watery and clear, and the container makes it very easy to pour. However, sometimes as you are getting ready to pour it in the relevant places, it may leak out of the top of the bottle since it has a tendency to run right out without having to squeeze the bottle. As it dries it does become sticky. When using a lot, since it is rather watery, it often slides down the vulva, between the butt cheeks and can result in a wet spot on the bed. Perhaps simply using this product sparingly could prevent this issue.
    • Slick
    • Sticky
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

This is not something I would suggest for use with oral sex. The taste is not very pleasing. It seems best for use with penetrative intercourse, masturbation, or when you need something to enhance body parts sliding together.
    • Bad taste
    • No smell


The product sometimes lasts long enough for intercourse or use with a vibrator, but it sometimes does require reapplication. After drying, it does have a tendency to become sticky, so expect to want to at least wipe it off. The best part about this product is that it lubricates very well, which is the products purpose. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants a basic lube to make sex and penetrative masturbation easier and more enjoyable.
    • Dries up too fast
    • Gets sticky
    • Safe with condoms


The product is packaged in a clear box with the directions and ingredients printed on the back. It is a smaller sized bottle that would be suitable for travel.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Travel friendly

Special Features

There is nothing exceptionally special about this product. It provides extra lubrication, and that is about it.


I bought Astroglide for use with my silicone traditional style vibrator. It works very well, although I think I use too much at once, because it ends up running on my bed and making a wet mark. I ended up using it during sex when I could not get wet enough, and it worked well.
