Smooth and slick lubricant by Cal Exotics - review by Pumpk1nPatch

Slick and smooth for a little while

Smooth and Slick by California Exotics is a good water-based lube. It's okay for sex, as it doesn't become flaky or too sticky, but I had to reapply a few times. If used generously, it can be used for anal play, too. I like it a lot to use with my toys, which is why I got it. I'd recommend this because you get a ton of lube for a very low price.
Price point, huge bottle, not too sticky
packaging, dried up somewhat quickly

extremely useful review
Smooth and Slick is a water-based lubricant by California Exotics. It's great for adding moisture for penetration, masturbation and with toys. If used unsparingly, I would recommend this for anal use. It's latex compatible, as well, so it can be used with condoms. You don't have to worry about your toys getting ruined with this one. I got this one because I needed a new lubricant solely for toy use. I normally use silicone lube during sex 90% of the time.

Smooth and Slick comes in a very generous 8 ounce plastic bottle. The pictures on it are probably some of the least visually appealing imagery I've ever seen. It's tacky as all get out, but I guess it really hits home on what it's used for. The bottle is completely transparent, so it's easy to see if you're almost out. It has a white pop-top cap. This makes for easy, quick pouring. Just place your thumb on the opposite side, press and pour. Easy peasy.

The lube is very thin. Once poured, it is very runny. Not as thin as water, but it should be rubbed in or utilized quickly or messiness can be created quite easily. It's water soluble, so clean-up is a breeze. While it is water soluble, it says on the bottle that if a small amount of water will reactivate it when it has dried up some. I can't imagine myself doing this, though. Unless I remember to keep a bottle of water nearby, I'd say it's just as much effort, if not easier to pour more. It got only minimally sticky during use. I didn't get that gross flakiness with it though, so that's a plus. The smell and taste are next to nothing.
I found that during sex, it will last about 10 minutes before it starts drying up. During a solo session with a toy, it lasted a bit more.

Ingredients list:
Distilled Water
PEG-8 - thickener
Aloe Vera Extract
Carbonymethylcellulose - thickener
Carbomer 941 - prevents separation
Tetra Sodium - thickener
EDTA - improves stability in air
Methylparaben - preservative/anti-fungal
DMDM Hydantoin - preservative

So, this product contains glycerine, but I've never had any reactions to it. Some people areleary of it because it is linked to yeast infections. Here's an interesting article I found about glycerine.

I got this lube primarily for toy use, and I'll probably keep it just for that. I get better, more long lasting results with silicone for sex. This lube is just fine for that, it just doesn't last long enough for me. I have to reapply 2-3 times. My boyfriend decided to give it a try with a few of his masturbators and sleeves and he really likes it. He said it doesn't get absorbed as fast as some other water-based lubes. I don't have any problems with staining fabrics when Smooth and Slick comes in contact with them. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to try and travel with this bottle as I do not trust that it won't leak, and it's just too big. It's not at all discreet either on account of the blunt images on the stickers.
Overall, I am happy with this lube for my toys and so is my S/O, but I'll stick with silicones for any human contact.
