Liquid silk - water based lube by Bodywise Limited - review by K101

Just one point away from perfection!

All in all, Liquid Silk did impress me. I sure wish the ingredients were less harmful, but I couldn't resist loving it! It's nice and slippery, doesn't leave a trace of residue behind and feels natural. I would actually purchase again even with the nasty ingredients! The way my partner or a toy glides perfectly with this lubricant excites me more than any other!
Long lasting, feels natural, slick and stays in place on genitals.
Harmful ingredients.

extremely useful review


Liquid Silk is a good lubricant to use during intercourse, solo play and forlplay. The only thing that I dislike about Liquid Silk is the nasty, nasty ingredients. Other than that, it's great!

If you have allergies or are sensitive to parabens then run away! Liquid Silk is full of nasties like that! I would also say proceed with caution or do not proceed at all if you're prone to yeast infections or UTI's.

Highly Purified Water, Propylene Glycol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Dimethicone, Cellulose Polymer, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate NSE, B.N.P.D, Di Sodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methyl Paraben, Butyl Paraben, Ethyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, BHT

It also contains both silicone and water. If using with a silicone toy, do a spot test first. I've chosen not to risk using this on my silicone toys, but I can say it works like a dream on TPR!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The color of Liquid Silk is creamy white. It actually looks a lot like a thick male's ejaculation to me. It's very creamy, but not thick. I don't think I can say that it feels silky to me. It's slippery and slick and a very nice lubricant aside from the ingredients.

The consistency is very runny! I had a sample pack of Liquid Silk and it ran out all over my bed and phone! Yuck! The squirt bottle is easy since you just give it a pump and hold out your hand, but the sample packs make one hell of a mess. It feels slick and kind of rich to me. It feels similar to ejaculation, but to me it's a bit thicker. Putting a glob on my arm it immediately runs, but it seems to me that the runnier lubricants last longer so it's a positive to me.

Besides running down my arm, it stays in place wonderfully during sex or forplay. There was no dripping or mess. Like the product claims, it doesn't leave you sticky! I am forever thankful for that. It easily wipes away with a wash cloth or a quick rinse. To be honest, Liquid Silk didn't bother me when left on for a while afterward and most lubricants do!

I didn't notice any greasy or sticky residue, but on my hands, it leaves a powdery feeling beind. I am super sensitive to noticing these things though so it very well may not bother anyone else.

Taste / Aroma

This has virtually no scent and taste very bitter to me, kind of chemical-y to be truthful. However, I don't recommend using this during oral (rinse off first!)due to the harmful ingredients.


I was actually surprised at my reaction to Liquid Silk. I don't exactly get excited over lubricant, but I'm really satisfied with the performance. It lasts at least a good 40 minutes without ever drying up or absorbing. I was quite surprised. I didn't feel any need to immediately rinse off, besides the parabens and such. Other than that, it wasn't bothersome to have it dry on me. I also haven't experienced any negative reactions or irritation thank God. That was a worry I had when I read the ingredients.

I loved the consistency. It's the perfect mix between thin and creamy. It was slick and works great for gliding toys over (and inside) my lady bits. Like the package says, it does reduce friction! It's also pretty nice for a massage although I prefer something with better ingredients.

I honestly was a little disappointed in myself for liking this better than Sliquid! What is wrong with me? Liquid Silk just gives so much more of a slick glide and honestly, it feels more natural to me than Sliquid.

Liquid Silk comes in a 8.5 fl oz pump bottle or it can be obtained in sample packs. My sample pack was pretty big, would've lasted through at least 5 sessions, but it ran out all over the bed and my phone! I like the 8.5 fl. oz. pump bottle because it is easy to use, has a locking lid and by far less messy than a sample pack! The locking lid can sometimes be turned with one hand to unlock, but there are times where I have to use both. It's easy to use and the pump allows you to get a good amount without making a mess. This also prevents leakage!

As far as gift giving, I personally would not give it as a gift unless I did so in a gag sort of way. For most of my close friends and family, I would proabably stick with something that could double as a massage oil or something more discrete like Sliquid. There's nothing really offensive about the packaging, but if the person has mentioned lubricants, it would make a nice gift. Personally, I'd prefer recieving a vibrator or massager so that is probably what I'd choose to give rather than a regular lubricant.

The pump bottle is simple, clear with black text. This is nice as it draws less attention. It's obvious by reading the bottle that it's intended for sex, but it wouldn't stand out along a dresser full of bath and body products. It doesn't contain distasteful nudity photos and no vulgar words. The bottle can be used for travel, but I would just carry the sample packs for travel since it would take up less space and I probably wouldn't need the entire bottle. There were no instructions on the packaging.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
Follow-up commentary
I've said it over and over, nothing measures up to Liquid Silk, not in my opinion anyway. I've tried and reviewed many other lubricants over the past several months and haven't found anything that I find as perfect as Liquid Silk. At this point in my journey, I'm not sure that anything else exists! I do love the Intimate Organics like, but I reach for the Liquid Silk bottle every time. There's just nothing that feels quite like this stuff.

Since I wrote this review, I've managed to buy two more full sized bottles and 3 travel size bottles! I guess you could say I don't like to be without it. We really don't use lubricant as often as some. While we don't use it everytime, there are times when it's not exactly needed, but I enjoy it still! I occasionally use it before foreplay for the silky, but natural feeling and it moves things along more quickly.

We don't participate in anal sex so I can't say how I feel about this lubricant for that purpose.

    Great review on this! I think I'll be staying far away from this lube based on the ingredients, I'm too sensitive for most.
