Nice and Light

This is a great water based lubricant that is thicker than most other lubes, and is very slick. It has no smell or taste, and lasts a long time. I really don’t have anything bad to say about this lube.
Compatible with all materials, Slick, Thick
Contains glycerin and parabens
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Light Gel from B. Cumming Company is a water based lubricant which means you can use it with all materials, and it will wash off easily when you are done. It has great staying power which is especially handy with toys made of slicker materials. It is thick enough to be used anally, and is latex safe.

Ingredients: DI Water, Glycerin, Glycereth -26, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Imidazolidinyl Urea

If you have reactions to glycerin, and are weary of parabens, then this isn’t the lube for you. It also contains Imidazolidinyl Urea which is a formaldehyde-releasing preservative, commonly found in cosmetics, and is known for causing irritation for some people.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This lube is fairly thick for a water based lube, but it is thinner than the Classic formula from the same company. You have to squeeze the bottle in order to get the lube to come out. It doesn’t drip, and it is not greasy or stringy. Because of its slickness, it provides an incredible amount of glide. It becomes slightly sticky when it dries, but a little bit of water or a toy wipe will clear that away.

Taste / Aroma

It has no smell or taste. Only until I twisted off the cap did I notice a slight chemical odor. For oral, you’ll probably want to choose a flavored lube since this is very plain in taste and quite thick.


At first I didn’t have high expectations for this lube, but I was surprised to find that it is very long lasting. I use about a quarter size dab, so I will go through this bottle fairly quickly, but I’ve never had to reapply it. This lube is as slick as System Jo H2O, but lasts longer. I have nothing to complain about other then I wish this came in a larger size. I have not experienced any adverse side effects from using this lube.


All the product information is on the label, so you don’t get any extra packaging. It has the product name “Elbow Grease Light Gel” and company info. The label states that it is a water based personal lubricant. It also states that it is the “All-American lubricant,” so if someone picks the bottle up, they’ll know what it is. The bottle is quite small, only containing 2.5 fl.oz of lube, so it won’t really stand out. This is a great size for travel, and it doesn’t leak.
Follow-up commentary
This was one of the best water based lubes I've used. It wasn't as slick as silcione but for a water based lube, it had all the great qualities I look for. It wasn't drippy and it stayed in place quite well so I could easily spread it around without it spilling off. It's the perfect size to bring on travels as well.
