Lube of many uses.

Better sex essentials was recommended to me and I give much thanks for it. Good consistency for anal play with no reapplication needed. The best I have found for the tub/shower. Excellent for glass toys and masturbation by hand
Can be used in the tub or shower. Great for anal play. Feels good left on the skin

Better Sex Essentials is one HELL of a silicone lube, and has many uses. You get 8 fluid oz., a press to open lid and a emergency fire starter to boot. (more on that later) For me this is the best silicone based lube I have found.

Before I begin, I would like to mention that this lube, spilled on the floor or shower WILL be super slippery! Please clean up spills before they cause accidents. OK.

For one, it works great in the bathtub. After "shooting" about 3 ml's (using a small syringe) of this lube in my butt, I got comfy in the tub for some P spot fun. It lasted for a real long time with no need to reapply even though my butt was under water. I didn't have to even lube my Gold laced G, this was sweet, no lube all over the base makes for better control. For glass toys you do not need much, so this is really good.

Two, it worked really good in the shower for masturbation. I loved that it was not super slick, but rather had some "friction" to it. This has always worked the best for me when using my hand.

Three, I like to use it for shaving, both my face and my genitals. I use a small dime sized dab on my fingers and rub it all over the area to be shaved, then use shaving cream over the top of the silicone. This will save on shaving cream and makes the blades last a lot longer. You can use the lube alone if you want, the shaving cream just saves on lube. The wife really loves the feel of my skin, soft and smooth with very little irritation.

I have no problem after with it feeling greasy. In fact the wife likes to use it for a after shower moisturizer. Both of us just love the feel of our skin after use. There is a taste to it, not horrible but still there. Only slightly smells, to me it's like a light cooking oil. The good part is you have to be up close to smell it.

I have only used it once with the wife for PIV and she had no problems. She has also used it for shaving with no ill effects.

This lube is made out of: Cyclomethicone, Dimethiconol, and Cyclopentasiloxane

This brings me to the only con I can find with this lube. On the back it states "Do not use near open flame" (blink blink) WTF! Well I had to test this out and you can see my results here. Needless to say keep away from an open flame.

It will clean up fairly easy, for the body a shower type soap works good. For floor spills I find Dawn dish soap and hot water works very good. Remember that any spills will be slippery and should be cleaned as soon as you find them. I can not stress this enough!

The bottle came wrapped in a clear plastic bag. On the front is the name which does not make it discreet. On the back you will find directions for use, the list of ingredients and warnings on use with silicone toys (no no) and the open flame deal. Also you will find the company name, address, a toll free number and web site address. It is made in America and the bottle can be recycled. (#1 plastic) Cool eh?
I sent of a email to Sinclair Institute to ask what ingredient was flammable and here is their reply.

Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you for your email.
The glycerin is the ingredient which makes it flammable. If we can be any further assistance, please let us know.

Before I could ask what ingredient had Glycerin I received a second email that said;

Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you for your email.
We apologize for the misinformation in the previous email.
That item does not contain glycerin. The flammable ingredient is Cyclomethicone.
Cyclomethicone is made from refined petrolatum, and it is a flammable, odorless, colorless gas which is insoluble in water.
If we can be any further assistance, please let us know.

So cool that they answered my questions and did so in less than a day. Nice company.

So that leads me to another use, it can be used as an emergency fire starter. HAHA
No really don't use it for that, the smoke is nasty and will contain finely divided silica and silica is bad for your lungs. (Thanks to ScottA for that information) Besides you wouldn't want to waste lube, I did it in the name of science so you don't have to. If you must, make sure you do it out side and do not breath in the smoke.

Like I said before this is THE best silicone lube I have tried. I have been looking for a lube that works good in the tub, this is the best by far. The others seemed to wash away when under water, but not this one.
Follow-up commentary
Half the bottle gone and still loving it. This bottle stays in the bathroom and get's tons of use, so nice that a little goes a long way. The wife has used it for shaving her legs and I as well.

Just make sure to clean up spills and wash the floor of the tub/shower when finished, no oops, eh?

And for those of you that watched my Halloween video [], yes I use this lube to get the dildo to burn. Well what did you think I would use?
