It's what's on the inside that counts.

Ohh! LELO lube! Must be awesome! Nope. Keep looking. This lube may look all classy and luxurious, but you're better off with a bottle of something cheaper. It gets kind of sticky, has a weird consistency, and isn't what you'd expect at all from LELO. The only thing this stuff has on other lubes is the totally discreet packaging, but who cares about packaging if the lube works really well? Come on, LELO. We all know you can do better.
Discreet packaging, doesn't totally fail at being a lube.
Gets sticky, goopy texture, nothing special about it.

extremely useful review


This isn't a lube! It's a "personal moisturizer"! Well, that's what LELO calls it, anyway. Truth is, it is a lube. Crazy.

Yes, lubes do their job by making things slippery so you can stick things into other things. It's useful when you're having sexytime because it allows for things to run smoothly. Friction and chafing aren't really fun for anyone, are they? Use this stuff to add a little oomph to your toys, get a little more glide in your stride with vaginal sex, or to get a lubey booty for butt fun time. Lube is essential for that last part.

LELO's "fancy, sophisticated" lube doesn't contain glycerin or parabens, so it's technically a "sensitive" formula, but it's not going to be one of the best options out there for something like that.

Water, Propylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Gurana Extract, Ginseng Extract, Avena Sativa Extract, Polysorbate-20, Aspartame, Polyquaternium-5, PEG-45M, Citric Acid.

Okay, so there's aloe in there which is good for its skin soothing properties and sexything can sometimes be a bit irritating. Avena sativa is oats which helps to work as a moisturizer. The rest of it I'm not really quite sure about. Why are guarana, ginseng, apartame in there? I'm not trying to give my vagina an energy drink and these are common ingredients in those. Herbs that work as energy boosters and an artificial sweetener. Weird. Why not throw caffeine and B-12 in there, LELO?

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This LELO lube is a medium viscosity. It's not runny like some water-based lubes can be, but it's not really a gel, either. Think light hair gel, almost. Because it doesn't run it makes application easy since it's not dripping all over the place. The flip cap tube also makes it easier to dispense than the ones that come in the click open bottle. You don't have to give it too much of a squeeze to dispense any, and it's easy to get just the right amount needed without having a huge glob wasted.

Now, you'd expect that LELO would be classy about how their lube felt, but they pretty much do the same exact thing with the texture as every other lube out there. It's kind of thick, but not the slickest water-based lube out there. It feels much more velvety that the super slippery stuff and this offers a somewhat more natural amount of glide. It's also mildly sticky, especially when it starts to dry. Again, not the stickiest of the bunch, but not the least. It does last for a moderate amount of time but dries up at the average lube mark. After it dries up it's not quite as sticky but does leave some of that "dry lube" feeling behind. Nothing noteworthy or spectacular here.

Taste / Aroma

Now, this isn't a lube that you're really supposed to be tasting a whole lot of, but sexytime activities usually have you tasting a whole bunch of places and some of those may have lube on them. This stuff doesn't taste to great. Even though it has an artificial sweetener in it it's kind of bitter and generally unpleasant tasting. It's not something that will leave you gagging, but it may prompt an "eww" response. To avoid this just dab it off with a cloth and you'll be fine. Or you could always throw a flavored lube on top of it. Water-based lubes that aren't flavored generally don't have much of a smell, and this one doesn't really, either.

So I was expecting this to be some kind of awesome lube because it's in such a classy package. LELO is known for their luxury and the high quality of the stuff they make. Well, not so much here. It's a pretty standard run of the mill lube that's not special when it comes to anything but the packaging. When I used it for the first time my impression was "Hmm. Okay. It's just plain old lube." Nothing stood out and it wasn't even that great at anything it did. Personally, I think the System JO H2O outdoes this one by a long shot, and that one is actually a bit cheaper.

This stuff lasts about an average amount of time (10-20 minutes depending on what you're doing with it). It's useful for vaginal penetration, but I wasn't even going to attempt to use it for anal since it barely did anything special for vaginal and my other middle of the line lubes worked much better. Even though it has that gel-type consistency it really doesn't stack up to the other stuff.

It did leave a slight lubey feeling behind followed by a slight icky sticky feeling, but that faded into "I need to probably wipe this off." Now, it wasn't horrible and I've had worse, but it didn't really feel too sexy. A damp cloth took care of all of that and I was back to being lube-free again. Being a girl with a delicate ecosystem, I can say that it didn't really cause me too many problems in that department, though. No irritation, no burning, and no gross lady issues.

The only thing that saves this from being a total fail is the discreet packaging. You wouldn't know what it is unless you actually opened it. The wording is quite small and only hints at what it is used for. It doesn't mention anything about sex or genitals. Hell, you'd probably think it was lotion. This comes in handy when you're travelling and don't want anyone to know of your devious plans.

    Thanks for the great review. Average lube (albeit without glycerin/parabens), with discreet packaging, but a high price.
