Sassy - lubricant by Sliquid, LLC - review by Catan

Love the Sass

Made of natural, body-friendly ingredients, this clear, odorless lube stays put where applied. As an anal lube it is inferior to silicone. But as an all-rounder it is wonderful. Sliquid Sassy can be used with all toys including silicone, and is great for external, vaginal, and short-term anal use, pretty much everything except playing in water and long-term anal use.

extremely useful review
I love this lube! I trust the Sliquid brand to use only healthy, safe, body-friendly ingredients. What I like most about this lube is that it stays in place when applied. Sure, if I put a large dollop of it on a toy and then dangle the toy upside down, it will drip off, but in the amount of time it takes me to close and set-down the bottle, Sliquid Sassy stays in place perfectly, allowing me to rub it in where I want it, without extra dripped mess. I hate thin lubes that run down as you try to apply them.

Let's look at the vegan ingredients:

Purified Water- The human body is 60% water, and the “purified” reassures me there aren't a bunch of contaminants in there.

Plant Cellulose from Cotton- Basically plant pulp, used in processed foods to increase dietary fiber content. In this lube, it is used as the thickener, instead of glycerine. Cellulose is so difficult to digest that vaginal yeast and bacteria can't feed on it, so this lube will not encourage yeast infections.

Cyamopsis (Guar Conditioners)- Cyamopsis is the scientific name for the Guar Bean plant. The beans are used to create the stable gel texture of the lube (guar gum has 8 times the thickening power of corn starch!) and as a skin conditioner (softener.) Like cellulose, guar gum is difficult to digest and will not feed vaginal yeast.

Potassium Sorbate- This is a preservative, so that a bacterial culture doesn't take up residence in your lube! This isn't a great ingredient, as it is a skin irritant and shows some toxicity at high concentrations, but it is approved for food use, and is an alternative to parabens, which have been linked to breast cancer, and mimic estrogens.

Citric Acid- This is what gives orange juice (and all other citrus fruits) its sour taste. It is used to bring the lube to the most stable pH for the other ingredients, and closer to the pH of natural bodily fluids.

This lube has no odor. The taste is very mild, a touch metallic, a bit seaweed-y? I notice the slimy texture on my tongue more than the taste, and the only aftertaste it leaves is a slight warming on the tongue.

I like the sassy, hot pink label. The sparse floral design looks fun, friendly, and trendy, not clinical or gaudy. It is clearly geared toward women, though, with female symbols and the phrase “Created by sensitive women, For sensible women.”

My one complaint is that the bottle and cap are not well designed for such a thick lube. The same as the other Sliquid lubes, the cap pushes down on one side to reveal a 3 by 8 mm opening. When I hold the bottle upside down, the lube doesn't immediately come out, so I try to squeeze it. The bottle is difficult to squeeze, and at first, still nothing comes out. Then, too much comes out all at once! A more flexible bottle (easier to squeeze) and a larger opening would be better for such a thick lube.


When used externally I didn't notice any stickiness. Like any water-based lubricant, this will eventually evaporate. You can reapply, or reactivate it by adding water. Used on a female, I did not need to reapply. I assume that with male masturbation, re-application would be necessary. When left on a silicone toy and allowed to dry, it formed a clear film that flaked off. The lube did not leave any marks on flannel.

I love lubes like this for vaginal use, because the water-based formula is promptly, naturally washed out with vaginal fluids (which are also water-based).

Sliquid Sassy is marketed as an anal lube. The only indication of this on the bottle is small text that says “Sliquid Sassy Booty Gel” on the back of the label. One purpose of the rectum is absorbing excess water from stool, so like any water-based lube, this will eventually be absorbed by the body when used anally. Even with safe ingredients, I don't like the idea of consuming things through my butt! Silicone lubes are better for anal play, because they are not absorbed into the body, and nothing beats the frictionless feel of silicone! Sassy is a great alternative if you are using a silicone toy you don't want to risk damaging, if you want a product thats more natural, if you don't mind reapplying, and for short-term anal play. When used on a silicone butt plug, I found it to become uncomfortable after an hour or two.

Another disadvantage of being water-based is that it washes away in water, so it can't be used in the shower/tub/pool.

Even though its a “booty” gel, I find Sliquid Sassy to be a great all-around lube.
