Just skip this

Too runny at first and too tacky at the end, plus use just leads to a huge mess. Easy cleanup is its saving grace, but this lube just doesn't do what I need it to do. Not worth the buy.
Easy cleanup, clear, odorless, nonreactive
Sticky, tacky, runny, short-lasting

extremely useful review
To be honest, I am not a fan of this product. Astroglide is one of the first lubes I tried in my younger years, and I never really took a liking to it. Recently I used it again, and my opinion has not changed.

One main problem, for me, is that I can never get this lube to stay where I need it. It's runny and inevitably leads to a huge mess that requires extensive cleanup afterwards. Despite a reputation that suggests otherwise, I find that it does not last nearly long enough during anal play, and as lube is a necessity in these instances, it requires consistent reapplication - and this unintentionally worsens the mess! The last, and perhaps the biggest, problem is that there is usually a tacky/sticky surface left behind when the lube is used up. This actually ADDS friction instead of taking it away, pretty much making this lube worthless. This is, unfortunately, a common problem with water-based lubes, so the fault cannot be applied solely to this brand.

It's water-based and compatible with sex toys of any variety. It's pretty much odorless, and while I've been told it tastes bad, I can't speak of that first hand as I've always avoided licking it. Another plus is that it is insanely easy to clean up and clear so it doesn't stain. I would use baby wipes, which got rid of just about all of the residue. Because of the tacky and runny nature of this lube, such cleanup was frequently necessary. I've never heard of allergic reactions to Astroglide, and they produce varieties especially formulated for sensitive skin as well. Since it's a more mainstream lube, it's not difficult to find in any given convenience store, and the price is usually fairly cheap.

All in all, I would avoid this lube unless you have nothing else available.
I've noticed this has a tendency to mix in with your own bodily fluids. It feels somewhat natural in that regard, although for that reason I never really liked it for anal sex. Furthermore, the taste prohibits oral.

This can't be used in the shower as water washes it away too quickly.
Follow-up commentary
After continued exploration with other fine lubricants, I am still very confident that Astroglide is not the lube for me. Frankly, if I could bring this down to a 1-star review I would. I would suggest to anyone reading this to splurge on the higher-priced lubes out there. If you still come back to Astroglide, so be it, but there is a wonderful world of lubricants out there to explore, and lots of fun to be had trying them out! Best of luck.
