ID moments - lubricant by I-D Lubricants - review by Menarae

Too Sensitive for This?

Aside from my reaction to this product, I wouldn't recommend it because it gets sticky pretty quickly. Yeah, it's pretty cheap, but you have to keep reapplying it. There are better products out there that are of much higher quality. Paraben-free lubes are becoming more common, and there are tons of glycerin-free lubes on the market. There are also slipperier, thicker, longer-lasting lubes available.
Glycerin-free, paraben-free, non-staining, easy to clean up
Gets sticky, has a strange smell, just slightly thicker than water

extremely useful review


This lubricant is quite thin, so I would use it primarily for vaginal play. I attempted it for anal, but it didn't coat the toy as well as other lubricants do. Because it's water-based, it'll be rinsed away in the shower, meaning you'll have to reapply several times.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

ID Moments is a little thicker than water, but not by much. It's a clear fluid, so it won't stain fabrics. When I rubbed it between my hands, it stayed slippery for a few minutes and then it got sticky and started to turn white with tiny bubbles.

Taste / Aroma

As soon as I opened the bottle, it smelled sweet...but not quite like sugar-sweet, a chemical, almost perfumey sweetness. I checked the ingredients again thinking they might have snuck some sucrose into it, but it does have added flavor. I didn't try to taste it.

Sometimes I have issues with sensitive skin, but I've never had a reaction to lubricant, and I've tried about a dozen different brands. So I thought I'd be okay with the hypoallergenic ID lube. I tried using this product anally with a toy, and it was on me maybe thirty seconds before it started to burn and tingle unpleasantly. I barely had the toy in me (and I'd been using that same toy only a few minutes before with another lube). Thank goodness I was in the shower so I could get it off quickly. I scrubbed down my toy really well to make sure all the ID lube was gone before resuming my playtime with my regular lube.

I did rub a little of the lube between my hands. It picked up body heat pretty quickly, which was nice. It did remain slippery for about three and a half minutes before it started getting sticky. Once it started to go sticky, it just got worse and worse until I washed it off.


The packaging is pretty decent. It's not raunchy, but it does say that it's lubricant right on the front of the bottle, so I wouldn't leave it out for guests, parents, or children to find. It also clearly labels that it's water-based, glycerin-free, and paraben-free on the front. Ingredients are listed on the back with instructions for use and a link to the ID website.

It's in a bottle with a flip-top, so you can open it and dispense with one hand. The plastic of the bottle is a little firm though, so you do have to squeeze pretty hard to get the lube out.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Easy to use / dispense

Special Features

It's glycerin-free and paraben-free, and they say it's hypoallergenic.

Personal comments

I was quite surprised that I reacted to this lubricant and how quickly it happened, especially since it's supposed to be hypoallergenic. Perhaps it was the added flavor--I know I can react to products with added perfumes. Unfortunately, the ingredients list doesn't say what kind of flavor or whether it's natural or artificial, so I can't say for sure that's what I reacted to. I've never, ever had a reaction to lubricant before, and I've used ones with both glycerin and parabens.


I wasn't expecting to be blown away by the ID Moments. Lubricant is one of those things that you really get what you pay for, and you don't pay much for ID Moments (I actually got mine for free). I was thinking I'd give it a quick try since I had the bottle anyway and it was just taking up space in my toybox, and if it did a halfway decent job, I'd use up the bottle and never touch the stuff again. But after the reaction I had, I'm hesitant to use any of the water-based ID lubes. If I had that kind of reaction to the hypoallergenic lube, what is the tingling lube going to do to me?
Follow-up commentary
I still haven't worked up the courage to use this again. Or even try ID's other water-based lubes. And at work, we recently started carrying the ID Moments Warming lube, which utterly terrifies me. I haven't sold a single bottle of the entire Moments line.

And the more poking around I do with this product, the more people I find have had the same experience. I still don't recommend this stuff, ever.

    Great review! I had the warming/tingly sensation too but it wasn't that bad. A friend of mine noted the same thing. Weird!
