Maximum Effect

This item is totally worth the money if this is what you are looking for. Make sure your only requirements are a water-based, not sticky or tacky lube that will last for a while. If you are looking for something with a great smell, this product isn't for you because it has very little smell. If you want a great tasting or even palatable lube, then this product is not what you are looking for.
Very slick, not tacky, rubs into skin well after use.
Requires reapplication during use, and tastes horrible!

Hands down the best part of this product is how low-maintenance the aftercare is. This product works very well, and after the fun is over just rub any you have left into your skin and go. There is no flaking and it is moisturizing (if a little oily) when first rubbed in. It is super slick and not at all sticky. If you don't like the feel of lube afterwards, though, you might want to wash it off, because it's hard to remove it with a dry cloth, it just never seems to get all of it off. If you do choose to wash it off, a damp wash cloth will work fine, no soap needed.

This product looks and feels like gel. It comes out cold but warms up quickly. There is no sound when pumping it from the bottle, but I suppose you could make a squeltching sound with it in application if you wanted to. It is not meant to be consumed and as such tastes horrible! It's sweet and bitter at the same time, and I can't taste it without making a face. It is almost acrid tasting and the flavor unfortunately lingers for a while after you try it, so I suggest chasing it with water if you do. It has a mild smell that is hard to describe. To me it just smells like new sex toy. It is not really powdery smelling, but I suppose that is the closest I can come to describing it.

This lube is water-based and thus safe for silicone toys. It degrades in water, so it is not great for use in the shower. The first two ingredients are purified water and propylene glycol, followed by four kinds of parabens which may incite some allergies. The bottle is printed with an expiration date right on the side, which I think is interesting and reassuring. The pricing is average for a product of this type. Not the cheapest by any means, but not the most expensive. It's a large bottle and seems to last for a long time.
The most important thing for me to note about this product is that a little goes a long way when applying. However, speaking from experience, this product doesn't quite get me through until the end with one application. Once things get really going, either the friction rubs it away or it absorbs into the skin. Reapplication is unfortunately necessary.

    Nice review. Maximus is my go-to lube. We often use baby wipes or the Eden Wipes and we've found that those take care of any leftover lube. Thanks for sharing!
