Astroglide X silicone lubricant by BioFilm - review by toysforall

Slick but greasy!

With some exceptions, this is just not a great lubricant. We use this lube for certain situations, but it is not our everyday lube. The lube is very oily, greasy, and difficult to wash off. There are better silicone lubes for the same money.

extremely useful review


This is not a good "all around" lube, but for certain situations, it works well. We have had this lube for a year or so, and the bottle is only about halfway gone. Basically, we just don't use it very often.

I would say the best use for this is a hand job or prolonged sex sessions. It does last for a long time. This makes it work very well for hand jobs so that you don't have to keep reapplying it. After about 15 minutes, it does seem to dry out just a bit and needs reapplication. However, this is a long time compared to water based lubes I have used.

I like the feel of this on a hand job better than a water based option. This isn't as slick as most water based lubes, so it seems to give just a bit more friction, which for me is a nice feeling.

The other good use is for our long and take-it-slow sex sessions. As opposed to hand jobs, we've never had to reapply when having sex using this lube. With a bit of natural lubrication, this lube seems to last forever.

This lube also works much better in the shower than a water based lube. Even if the water hits it, the lube doesn't wash off and lasts for a long time.

We haven't tried, but I think that this would work well as a lubricant for anal sex. It lasts a long time and seems to stick to objects very well. Once it's there, it seems to stay there well.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture is one of my least favorite things about this lube. It is very greasy and oily in comparison to any other lube I've used. My wife hates the texture of it.

The lube is so thin that it's very hard to apply. When putting some on, it likes to immediately fall off and hit the bed sheets. It did stain the sheets until they were next washed. Thankfully, it did come out.

After application, the feel does not get any better. Throughout the use, it maintains its oily type texture. I would compare it to mineral oil in its feel.

Taste / Aroma

This lube has absolutely no smell that I noticed, which is nice. I also didn't detect any flavor to it.

This lube lasts for a long long time, depending on the use. It does slightly change as time goes on, getting a bit less slick. However, it does stay oily and greasy for the entirety of use.

Cleanup is a hassle with this lube. This is one of the main reasons my wife doesn't like it. You have to be careful where you put your hand after you apply it, because anywhere you get it will have to be washed with soap and water.

Even with soap and water, it doesn't wash off all that well. It takes a bit of scrubbing to get it all off. We usually just end up taking a shower after using this lube to get it all off.

You also can't use this with silicone based toys. I even keep this lube in a separate box from our silicone toys to ensure none of it gets on them.
