Strawberry Blahhhh

My husband and I found this flavored lube to be extremely gross. The smell is way too overpowering and the taste is awful. While everyone is different I could not actually recommend this product.

extremely useful review


We bought Good Head gel in Strawberry to add a little something during oral sex. For the price we were expecting a product that would really take away some of the flavors of the natural human body as sometimes they can be overpowering. Let me just save you the trouble right here because this product is very gross! Honestly, now that I know what it tastes and smells like you could not even give it to me for free! I would throw it right in the trash because the smell is so overpowering it has made both of our stomachs turn. As far as flavor it really is about the same. I would rather take all the natural body flavors than to add this stuff because when you add the two together you are blown away...and not in a good way!

We have not tried any other flavors from this brand because we had such a bad experience with the strawberry. Please don’t let this discourage you from buying other flavored lubes because there are some really great ones out on the market that don’t smell so strong and can actually taste quite nice.

Long story short only buy this lube if you’re looking for an instant mood killer!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

As far as texture I was expecting good things from this lube before we bought it, but I was completely wrong. It has a very thick consistency which, for me, did not help with the overpowering smell or terrible taste. With it being so thick there seemed to be a lot more of the lube hanging around and the smell nearly knocked me over while the taste made me gag right away. Honestly as soon as it went on it was washed right back off. I think this was the worst experience with a flavored lube we have had. I would rather use a flavored condom and well, that’s pretty bad! We’ve pretty much decided to forgo flavored products and just go all natural.
    • Greasy
    • Thick

Taste / Aroma

Oh my, I could go on and on about how much I hate the taste as well as the smell of this product. I really do not enjoy leaving bad reviews but this lube was a serious fail in my book! Even just writing about this and having to remember my experience with this product it really turns my stomach. The smell is way overpowering. It smells a lot like strong strawberry pop rocks and cheap strawberry soda only worse! The taste was even worse than the smell. If something can be both greasy and thick than this would be it. This product was unfortunately my worst experience with flavored lube.
    • Bad smell
    • Bad taste
    • Strong smell


The performance of this lube really stinks. And I am not being metaphorical here… it literally stunk!

My hubby and I really don’t have a ton of experience in lubricants so lately we have been branching out and trying new products. This is one that I wish I had never even heard of! At roughly $17 you would expect a decent product with a bearable smell and/or taste. We received neither. As soon as the tube was opened I wanted to close it back up. We both soldiered on, however, thinking that maybe it would get better as we went on. Well, things got worse. When he put it on me and tried it out he couldn’t even get close to me. I went and wiped it off with soap and water but it still didn’t take care of it so I had to take another bath and we had bathed together before we had started anyway. Talk about a mood killer! When I tried it out on him I already knew that I wouldn’t enjoy it but I was determined to give it a go. I didn’t make it very far because the smell and taste were so terrible.

I’m sorry to say that this product fails big time in foreplay or anything else.
    • Dries up too fast
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water

Personal comments

While my husband and I really hated this product we know that everyone is different and there may be some people who could really love this product.
Follow-up commentary
We threw this away after our first use. It was an absolutely awful experience and I would not buy it again!

    I like Strawberry Pop Rocks, but I'll probably hate the smell of this. Thanks for the review. Sorry it didn't go too well for you.
