ID Glide Review

This lube is long-lasting, has a smooth consistency, and is easy to clean up. It's safe to use with condoms and toys, and doesn't have any obnoxious smells.
Slippery smooth, long-lasting, toy-compatible.
Doesn't last long in the water.
Rating by reviewer:
somewhat useful review
I have tried many other brands of water based lube. ID Glide will always be my number one choice for water based lubes for many reasons. The most important of those reasons being the consistency. It is smooth and slippery -- not runny or sticky like other brands I have tried. As a bonus it is doctor recommended; can you get any better than that? Well, it gets better.

I have been using the same 4 oz tube for the last two years, and I still have half the bottle left! I do not try to be frugal when I use it either, I only need to use a quarter sized drop and it will usually last the entire session. In the case of shower or bath time adventures, ID Glide does not make the cut. It just washes away and I have to keep reapplying.

The flip cap is especially handy when applying ID Glide in the heat of the moment. You do not have to mess around with any twist caps or pumps... unless you purchase the 17.5 oz or 35.5 oz sizes. Those have a pump, which I have had experience with when I purchased the ID Glide Pleasure lube. That is another story -- I will just get to the point and say that the pumps are very messy and tend to leak.

The price value is great. Like I mentioned before, I have had my 4 oz tube of ID Glide for about 2 years. It cost me fifteen dollars from a retail store.

It does not have any obnoxious smell to it, has virtually no taste, and it is safe to use with condoms and sex toys. It is easily cleaned off with water, which can be a pro or a con depending on where you're using it.
Follow-up commentary
I still like ID Glide as an overall basic lube, but I have since moved on to Maximus, which has a smoother feeling to it.

    You've been using the same 4oz lube tube for two years? I'm curious on how long it takes to expire. To me that just sounds outrageous.
  • Nox Vulpes
    I've looked all over the bottle, and there's no expiration date. @__@ If it has expired, I can't tell the difference.

    Has it started to dry out or anything after 2 years? It being that old would be a concern to me. Most things even cosmetics and lotions, and especially medical use products have a suggested replacement time because the chemicals can start to change with time.
  • Nox Vulpes
    It's still really slippery, as it was when I first got it. I've tried looking at their website as well for some expiration information, but found nothing. :X

    I also have a bottle of ID Glide which I have had for years. It has shown absolutely no signs of aging!
