This lube strikes out for me

I've always been happy with my purchases from LELO, but this lube just feels like a cheap ripoff. If you're looking for a decent water-based lubricant, look elsewhere because this one will just evaporate on you within minutes and leave you feeling sticky, gross and chafed.
Won't harm silicone toys, no glycerin or parabens
Too thin, has to be reapplied very often even for a water-based lube, tacky feeling after use

useful review


LELO personal moisturizer is like any other typical water-based lubricant on the market. However, compared to some other water-based lubes my partner and I have tried out, this one just doesn't hold up - especially at its price tag. Even for a water-based lubricant, it needs to be reapplied very frequently during penetrative sex and when it dries it feels sticky and oily on my skin. I feel like I could just go down to the local drugstore and buy any cheap old lube and end up with something pretty much like this one. The package brags that it does not contain glycerin or parabens; however, this lubricant does contain aspartame and citric acid, which could be irritating to some. I have very sensitive skin and it did not give me any irritations or bad reactions.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Because of its thin, tacky consistency in my opinion this lubricant is not suitable for anal sex. It is rather viscous when first poured out but it quickly loses that property as it dries out and absorbs into your skin. To me it felt tacky and sticky after it dried. In order to use this for vaginal sex it has to be reapplied several times. I feel like this lubricant would be better suited for masturbation or other uses where lots of slipperiness and staying power is not required.

Taste / Aroma

This lubricant does not have any scent to it, and like most other water-based and non-flavored lubes I've tried, it tastes very soapy and unpleasant. I had to rinse my mouth out immediately after trying some, and it left a soapy, filmy feeling on the inside of my mouth. Due to its unpleasant taste, I do not think this lubricant is suitable for oral sex, unless you enjoy the taste of dish soap.
    • Bad taste
    • No smell


Like I said before, this lube just does not hold up. It dries out very quickly and leaves an unpleasant, tacky feeling behind. One good thing about the LELO personal moisturizer is that since it is water based, it won't react with any of the materials your sex toys, condoms or other accessories are made of so it is safe to use with everything.

Many people believe that all water-based lubricants are terrible and dry out fast and I want to say that this is just not true. I have many allergies so I am always looking for safe products to use on and around my body, and water-based lubricant is the only kind I am able to use. I would suggest using a water-based gel lubricant like Sliquid Ride if you are looking for more staying power during sex. Even though it's marketed for anal sex, it's great for vaginal sex as well especially if you enjoy using toys that are a bit on the larger side.
    • Dries up too fast
    • Gets sticky
    • Reapply often
Follow-up commentary
I ended up throwing the rest of the bottle away in the trash after it leaked all over the place. Gross!
