Taken to the Max!

Maximus has very quickly become my go-to lube. Because it is water based, I don't have to be careful as to what toys to use it with and can be washed off of skin, clothes, and most fabrics easily. It provides a great thick layer of slipperiness that I've never found in another lube without a runny consistency. Amazing for anal and great for any other kind of play you're into.
Thick, consistent, long lasting for water-based, no taste/odor.
Does eventually dry up and need re-application.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
After reading several reviews of Maximus water-based lube and never having tried it, I decided it was finally time for it to join my bedside lineup.

I ordered the 8.25 oz. pump bottle from EF and it arrived with a seal over the top and also in a clear plastic bag to protect the other items in my shipment from any leakage. As another safety feature, you have to spin the pump several times around to get it to pop up to be functional. There is also an expiration date printed on the bottle which I think is an important feature some manufacturers overlook.

I had just gotten 2 new toys so I decided to give Maximus its first run. I applied it to myself first with my fingers. It gives a thicker and more substantial feel than most other waterproof lubes. It's about the same thickness as hair gel but goes on smoothly and doesn't run when applied to fingers or toys like other thinner ones will.

I then applied the lube to a new rubber dual-function vibrator. It stayed where I put it on the toy without running down or onto the sheets. This made insertion super-easy. I also tried it with a new silicone vibrator and it performed just as well on that surface.

I've also used this lube for some light anal play on my partner. It coats and stays in place beautifully. Because of its thickness it provides great consistent slickness without being runny or watery.

Maximus, like all water based lubes, will eventually begin to dissipate during use but in my experience it still lasted much longer than many others in the same category. It also just simply seemed to dry, as opposed to becoming sticky or leaving a residue on my skin.

It also will not last a very long time if used in water, say a shower or tub. However, on the up-side, since it is water based it washes of toys and skin easily without leaving any lingering residue or unwanted slipperiness and won't stain most fabrics.

It is virtually tasteless, having just the slightest tinge of sweetness and has no odor. I also have very sensitive skin and had absolutely no problems with my skin using this product.
This lube worked great for every toy material I tried it on as well as skin to skin lubricant. I would especially recommend it for anal because it doesn't dry up too quickly and provides a slightly thicker barrier to protect the delicate areas it may be applied to. It's an awesome option to silicone lube if you want something super smooth and long lasting but would rather avoid silicone lube for whatever reason.
Follow-up commentary
This is still constantly at our bedside and we use it almost every time we use toys. I can't say enough good things about the consistency or the pump feature of this product and when we run out (we're down to about half), we'll definitely be re-ordering.
