Mystery lumps?

The clumpy residue kills it for me. I also find that it needs frequent reapplication. Honestly, I expected a better product from Sliquid since their water-based lubes are so great.
Silky feeling
Needs to be reapplied frequently, clumpy residue.

The Sliquid Silk seems like a nice lube. It has a silky smooth feeling at first and is a cloudy white color. It does have a faint smell that I can't think of anything to compare to. It's not unpleasant; it's just there. I don't care for the taste, which is kind of bitter. It also left a slimy, uncomfortable feeling on my tongue.

I wanted to try a hybrid lube, hoping it would have the longevity of a silicone lube and be compatible with my silicone toys. I spot tested the Sliquid Silk on my toys and had no issues. Where I was disappointed came from its constant need for reapplication and strange clumping issue.

Like I said, this lube requires reapplication after only a few minutes of use. I haven't had this issue with Sliquid's water-based lubes, so I was surprised that it was an issue with this one. The reason I bought this product was because hybrid lubes are supposed to last longer, but I guess this is the exception to the rule.

I could live with the longevity problems if that was this products only flaw, but what really bugged me about it was that using it resulted in some strange clumping. I have no idea what it was, but it's never happened before, and only occurs when I use this lube. After a few minutes of use, some strange lumps form and require a thorough cleaning to get rid of.

One good thing I'll say about this lube is that it leaves the skin soft and is good for slicking down fly-aways and leaves hair nice and shiny. But I want my lube to be lube, not hair product, so I until I work up the courage to try another hybrid, I think I'll stick to water-based lubes.
The clumps this lube made were really irritating and uncomfortable.
Follow-up commentary
This is still a no for me. I think I just expected more from Sliquid. This has really put me off of the idea of silicone lubes. Maybe I'll get brave enough to try another, but for now I'll stick with water-based lubes.

    When it comes to silicone lubes, I prefer the ones with just 3 ingredients or so. This has quite a few more than that; it's probably one of them that causes the lumping. Thanks for a great review.

    I had a problem with this leaving a flaky white residue after drying, but no clumping. I really wonder if you received a contaminated product? Or did it only clump after using on yourself? Shame it was such a bust & you're right, it's supposed to last longer than an all water-based lube! Thanks for letting everyone know about this issue!
