Lubricant discontinued
by K-Y Brand

Simple, yet effective!

A water-based lube that won't dry too quickly, provides great coverage, very easy to clean up after use and will fit in your purse for travel!
Silky feeling, easy to open/use, doesn't dry too quickly
None that I encountered!

extremely useful review
K-Y jelly is a water based lubricant containing (in order listed on tube) Water, Glycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Chlorhexidine Gluconate, Gluconolactone, Methylparaben, and Sodium Hydroxide. It comes in a box with the same colors as the tube inside. Those colors are pearly white, blue, and red. It comes in two sizes, I chose the smaller of the two, the 2 fl. oz. The tube is easy to open and close with a flip-open lid, and unless you squeeze the tube fairly hard it shouldn't open on its own, can be opened with one hand, and doesn't leak. I would suggest placing the item in a plastic bag, though, if you are taking it with you in a suitcase, just so that it doesn't become forced open and get on your other items during travel.

For a water based lubricant, this worked quite well, it comes out in almost the consistency of a runny Vaseline, for those of you who have ever used the product Aquaphor, it was the same consistency of that product. It is not colored, nor flavored, though I have gotten some of it in my mouth and it didn't have much of a flavor to it at all, perhaps a bit sugary, almost like the aspartame aftertaste. There was absolutely no scent to the product at all.

For use with toys, this product is great, because it is compatible with pretty much any type of toy unless otherwise specified on the toy, and doesn't get sticky during use. It also isn't sticky right after use, so you won't feel the need to run to the bathroom and shower right away. I found that the product tended to get sticky if left on the skin for about 30 minutes or so after completely drying, but of course it washes off in the shower or with a wet wash cloth very easily. It doesn't interact with the latex in condoms, so it is safe to use with those as well!

I also used this for another use. Sometimes, tampon insertion is painful for me, and so my GYN had recommended using a tiny amount of this gel on the tip of the tampon applicator to allow it to slide in more easily. This has worked very well for me, but I will of course mention that although it is not in large quantities, this product does contain Glycerin and a Paraben, and so if you are sensitive to either of those ingredients, please be aware!. For me, using it internally was fine, and it shouldn't cause any reaction, and should be hypoallergenic to most people, so you shouldn't need to worry about this unless you are very sensitive to it.
I have only really used this product for sexual purposes once, which worked very well for me with my Rabbit, but I mainly use it for helping make tampon insertion more comfortable. I have never had any problems with the product causing irritation, and the bottle never becomes sticky from being used frequently. This is one of the few K-Y products that I will use!
Follow-up commentary
I do use my K-Y on occasion, however I don't use it often at all. There are much better lubes out there for sex of all kinds. Better lubes for intercourse, better and flavored lubes for oral sex. I still use it for tampon insertion, because it seems to be one of the most comfortable, but even for that I prefer to use Aquaphor.

    You're both welcome! Glad you liked the review!

    @sloppy donkey: that's too bad you haven't liked any of their products yet. I enjoy some of their massage oils (not for intercourse) but this one actually works well, but there are better products out there, though.
