ID glide - lubricant by I-D Lubricants - review by Kangoshi

Add resource

Satisfactorily slippery!

ID Glide is an all-around good lubricant which does its job well; it keeps things slippery for a decent amount of time, is non-staining, non-stinky and its aftermath isn't a ridiculously sticky mess. It's safe for personal use, use with latex condoms, and should be compatible with most, if not all sex toys.
For the price, it's amazing, so it's worth giving a try!
Slippery; Very faint scent; Fairly gentle; Good price.
Somewhat runny; Contains glycerin.

useful review


ID Glide works very well with sex toys, as its water-based formula should be safe with nearly any toy.
I believe this product is good for anyone requiring lubrication for personal, toy, or sexual use. While it's suitable for nearly any occasion, it'd be best if you're somewhere that allows you to wash it off; there's a mild residue.
In terms of interactions... I have sensitive skin, but I had no reaction to ID Glide. However, ID Glide does contain substances such as glycerin, so do take caution if you have had reactions in the past. Glycerin breaks down into a sugar, which may contribute to vaginal yeast infections (or so I have read!).

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture is slick and smooth and perfect for the purposes I use it for. It feels nice and slippery between the fingers, and lubricates fingers and toys well. It's very easy to pour, due to its thinner consistency. However, this same consistency causes it to run somewhat. A minor problem for the most part.
ID Glide doesn't feel greasy in the least, but it does have a very slightly sticky residue once it dries. It isn't terribly bothersome, and washes off very easily, so it shouldn't pose much of a problem.

Taste / Aroma

The taste isn't bad, but it's nothing I would go out of my way to eat. (Then again, eating lube isn't the primary use for the stuff to begin with.) It's slightly sweet, and tastes better than some other lubes.
The smell is very, very mild, and not unpleasant.


This product is pretty good as far as endurance goes. A little can go a long way, and it feels nice and slippery for a good while. You may need to reapply before you're finished the task at hand, however, but it's still pretty good for a water-based lubricant.
In terms of clean-up, it will probably require some washing-off, as there is a faint residue that it leaves behind. Being water-based, it washes off very easily with just soap and water... And likely just water alone.
I have never known it to stain any fabrics it has come into contact with, either, which is a nice bonus.
My favourite aspects of the product are the texture, lack of strong odour and safety for use with toys. I would probably like it to be somewhat thicker, if only so I could keep it where I want it (e.g. on the tip of a dildo).


My 9.5 ounce serving of ID Glide came to me in a tall, bluish cylindrical bottle with a flip-top and a small spout for distribution, which worked very nicely. The bottle has an odd indentation along one side, which might be a grip of sorts... I don't feel it's necessary, but it could have its uses.
The packaging did have some brief instructions... Which, while not entirely necessary, were nice to see. It potentially shows that the company cares somewhat about the people using their products.
The packaging isn't entirely discreet; you couldn't pass it off as lotion or shampoo or a sports drink by any means. However, it can fit nicely into luggage and the like, and the flip top should hopefully prevent any spillage.

Special Features

The product doesn't have any special sensation features. No warming, cooling, tingling or glow-in-the-dark features. And you know what? That's a good thing. It's simple, it does its job, and it does it fairly well, no bells or whistles (or menthol) required. I like that.


My experiences with this product have been pretty good. I've enjoyed it the most thus far out of the lubricants thus far (Astroglide, Wet), but I still feel like I'm missing something. Until I try more lubricants, I can honestly just say that ID Glide is satisfying and does its job effectively.

    Sometimes I wish the lubes came in even smaller bottles so that you can empty a bottle faster to move on to the next one. I have tried KY, Astroglide, Wet, Toyfluid and heard good things about Maximus. Thanks for the review.
