Old faithful lube

It's a great all purpose lube and hasn't caused me any vaginal health problems, but because I am looking to eliminate all parabens from my personal hygiene regimen, I am no longer using this lube. It will be a hard one to replace when it comes to lubricating menstrual products for easier insertion.
All purpose, hasn't caused me any vaginal pH problems
Dries quickly, a little too sticky
Rating by reviewer:
useful review


A great water-based lubricant. I've used this for intercourse, toys, and even tampon or menstrual cup insertion. It was my go-to lube, and hasn't caused me any UTI or pH imbalance issues. I have a very sensitive vaginal pH and have had adverse reactions to other lubricants in the past. While this lubricant does have glycerin and parabens on the ingredients list, it did not give me any problems. I am, however, on the search for a new all purpose lubricant because I am trying to weed out parabens from the products I use.
    • Masturbation
    • Sex

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This lube is thick and a little tacky. After it dried it did leave a kind of sticky feel behind, and it does tend to dry out pretty quickly.
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Sticky

Taste / Aroma

It had no particular smell, but there was a slight taste to it. Nothing gross that would discourage oral sex, but because of the presence of parabens I wouldn't encourage oral either way.
    • Light taste
    • No smell


I purchased the 4 oz. tube and it lasted me almost a year with weekly usage during sex, and daily use during my period for tampon or menstrual cup insertion.

As for washing it off, it was very easy to clean up. A vaginal wipe or soap and water were all it took, and no residue was leftover.

During sex it seemed to dry out pretty quickly, which I hear is standard of water based lubricants. The more friction there was, the quicker it seemed to dry.
    • Gets sticky
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water
