My absolute favorite go-to lube

This is my absolute favorite lube. I have found no reason to go looking for another lube to use for vaginal sex because this one works great. I tried a lot of other brands before I found this one and now there is no going back. It doesn't irritate me and it works great? Yes, Please!
Silky feeling, long lasting, pump bottle
Wish it was clear, tastes bitter

useful review


I use this for everything. It is water-based so I use it with all my toys, it works great for vaginal sex and it has even worked for some light anal play. I am extremely sensitive and allergic to everything so once I found this I basically stopped hunting for a regular lube. It feels great, it works great and it doesn't irritate my vagina. Basically, it wins.
    • Masturbation
    • Sex

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Maybe it is just because it comes in this pump bottle, but the consistency and thickness is similar to a nice hand soap with moisturizer. It definitely lives up to its name. Very silky and smooth. It isn't too runny so it doesn't get anywhere, which is good because it is white and it can leave marks on my dark bedsheets (but they wash out!) It looks a little bit like cum, which you could consider to be a positive or a negative I suppose. I don't really mind it.
    • Smooth
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

No smell! Doesn't smell at all and doesn't leave a smell on your skin. Definitely don't use it for oral. It is not yummy!
    • Bad taste
    • No smell


It feels really natural and smooth. You don't feel all gelatinous and gross using it. It makes sex easier but does not distract from the actual sex. It even lasts very well. The only times we need to reapply during sex is if we didn't put enough on in the first place. It doesn't make you sticky and absorbs right into your skin. You don't feel like you need to take a shower after using it, as I do with some tacky lubes.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting


I really like the pump bottle it comes in because it makes getting to it really easy. No messing around with snap caps or twisty caps, you just pump and you are done. You have to leave it standing up, but this gets used so often in my bedroom that it's not an issue to leave it an easy access place. Because it's white and a pump bottle people could very easily mistake it for lotion as long as they don't read the fine print.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense

Special Features

It doesn't irritate me and as far as I am concerned, that is a great feature!

Personal comments

If this does bother your bits for some reason look into Sliquid H2O as it didn't irritate me at all and has less potentially irritating ingredients. It doesn't work nearly as well as Liquid Silk but if you have no choice it isn't terrible.


This virtually the only lube my partner and I use. We recently started shopping for some anal lubricants to try and we use the Sliquid Swirl for oral, but aside from that I see no reason to look for another lube. This one is great!
Follow-up commentary
This is my all time favorite lube. Hands down. Period. They only problem is the silicone ingredient in it even though it is supposedly water based. This makes the lube not the best choice for silicone toys. If you want to spot test it and see if there is a reaction you can, but I am not willing to risk it.

    Congrats on your first review!

    This is partially silicone based, so just in case, you should spot-test a silicone toy to make sure it won't react.

    Thanks for the review! Wish that it wasn't bitter!

    @potstickers Omg I read the ingredients like a crazy person due to all of my allergies and I didn't even stop to think about the Dimethicone in there! I think I will be safe and stick with Sliquid H20 on all of my silicone toys!

    Great review. My only suggestion for improvement is in the "special features" section, instead of saying that it doesn't irritate your skin, add more detail (if possible) about why that is. Does it say anywhere on the bottle or packaging that it is hypoallergenic? Is it lacking specific ingredients known to irritate skin? Other than that, great start!
