Astroglide X silicone lubricant by BioFilm - review by MikeyD

Lube Didn't Work for its Intended Use

If you are looking for a lube to take to the shower (and really, if your looking at silicone, chances are you want to get wet) look towards a brand that has been in the silicone game for longer. I personally recommend any Eros, Titanium, or Gun Oil.
-Well designed bottle
-MAY work as massage oil?
-Relatively inexpensive
-Washes off under water too easily for silicone
-Unsafe for silicone toys
-Leaves a slick residue

useful review
Ultimately this lube was purchased for use within the shower to replace our diminishing Eros anal lube. As stated in the title, I didn't particularly care for it in that respect. The container itself is designed well. The flip cap is important to note when dealing with silicone lubes as they tend to get extremely messy in the moment. The flip cap eliminates the need to touch the bottle with lube filled hands and have to close a twist on top. It also has a flat base, and relatively small height making it tip resistant (compared to our previous lube). It is colorless and odorless, and like most silicone lubes, is not safe to use with silicone toys. It has a relatively runny texture compared to most silicone lubes I have used and it does not seem to be hydrophobic (water resisting). It does tend to leave a residue on the tub, which can get very slick. The residue itself is very difficult to get off. I found myself using a sponge with an abrasive sponge. Outside of the water, it becomes a mediocre lubricant, but even then, MOST water based lubes will be better.

On the plus side, it washes off with ease under soap and water (on your skin). Another positive is that chances are it will not aggravate sensitive body parts like sensation-creating lubes or scented ones. At least it didn't cost an arm and a leg.

I attempted to use this as a massage oil with some success. The only downside again is the texture. It is a very thin lubricant, almost water like. It tends to run excessively when just pouring a bit out. It also absorbs into your skin relatively quickly, almost like a water based lube but will not dry with a sticky texture.
The first time I attempted to use this was in the shower. I wanted to anally finger my wife. It washed off relatively quickly and I was forced to hop out of the shower and grab the ol' faithful Eros.

The shower was still hot, but getting out was a pain.
Follow-up commentary
I gave this one an honest use just for masturbating and I'm still finding it running in the shower. Maybe mine is defective because after reading reviews it seems to be popular and one of the better brands.

    Congrats on your first review!

    It's ncie to know that this won't standup to sex in the shower. Since most of my toys are silicone, I woudln't have much use for this then. Definitely off the wish list, forever.
