Like Liquefied Strawberry Gelatin

This lube doesn't irritate sensitive areas and it doesn't taste bad, but it also doesn't taste particularly good. The scent is very strong and very artificial, and the lube itself requires some reapplication. It's great if all you need is a body-safe, inoffensive lubricant for oral play, but there are probably better flavors available.

Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


My boyfriend and I were looking for something to spice up oral sex for both of us. We like the Sliquid brand and I trusted that this would be among the safer lubes to use on me, so we gave it a shot. I've always been a little wary of strawberry flavored things and unfortunately, this one lived up to all of my expectations in exactly the way I was hoping it wouldn't.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This lube is pretty similar to other Sliquids, though I'd say it's slightly more watery. It doesn't last very long for me, although my boyfriend has said that it works well for him since it just adds to my natural lubrication. As with other Sliquids, if you don't squeeze the bottle correctly, the lube that is pouring out can be sucked back in. This shows how cohesive Sliquid tends to be, but it also risks contaminating your bottle if the drop of lube had already touched the surface it was being poured onto.

Taste / Aroma

This smells exactly like strawberry Jell-o. Unfortunately, it doesn't really taste like strawberry Jell-o. It tastes like that little bit of liquid left over after you've eaten the actual Jell-o. So the scent is strong but the taste is weak, and both are pretty artificial. Neither is unpleasant, but they're definitely not what we were hoping for. We've ended up using this lube more because we know that it's safe for both of us than because we actually enjoy it.
    • Light taste
    • Strong smell


This only lasts a few minutes when I use it on him, and then I either have to reapply it or deal with the fake strawberry aftertaste in my mouth. It's easy enough to wash off with water, but I definitely always smell hints of it for the rest of the day. I like that it doesn't irritate me at all and that the taste isn't unpleasant, but it definitely doesn't win any awards from me when it comes to durability and taste. We've used it for intercourse without any problems, though, which impressed me.
    • Reapply often


I love the fact that Sliquid's bottles never leak (at least, none of mine have so far), but the issue I mentioned about the lube being sucked back into the bottle is definitely a concern if you have multiple partners or have changed partners. I would consider getting a new bottle if that's the case.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense

Personal comments

I think I'm swearing off strawberry flavored items for a while because I've found that they rarely are executed very well. My boyfriend and I will continue to use this lube because it is, in general, a good one, but it has not lived up to our expectations and we probably won't be repurchasing this flavor.
