Useful.... enough...

I was unimpressed with what I received. I purchased this for use during anal sex, but it just doesn't hold up. We have to reapply often which kills the mood.

extremely useful review


This is a silicone lubricant. Silicone lubricants are excellent for vaginal sex, anal sex, and male masturbation. You can also use silicone lubricants with toys that aren't silicone. Additionally, silicone lubricants are great for play in wet environments because they aren't water soluble. They will stay in place until washed off with soap.

I have a lot of allergies, and I could use this fine with no reactions. The ingredients list is very short. This is paraben and glycerin free. One of the ingredients is an irritant in very rare case.

Dimethicone is used as a moisturizer. Irritation can occur with this in rare cases.
Dimethiconol is the silicone in this lube.
Cyclomethicone Another silicone

Because of all of my allergies, I always do a skin test on my inner wrist before using a product, so if that is a concern for you, I would recommend doing the same.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is pretty thin and feels a lot like a water based lube to me rather than a silicone lube. It's slick and kind of runny. It pours very freely from the bottle because of this.

I find that it feels very smooth and a tad bit velvety which I really love. It just doesn't last. It dissipates or absorbs super fast.
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

I have to give it to Toko on this part. There is no taste or aroma to this lube. There is nothing. Normally flavorless lubes have some kind of undefinable taste, but this one has nothing.
    • No smell
    • No taste


For the price of $17, we were expecting that a little would go a long way. We picked this up specifically for anal sex, so we were looking for something slick and long lasting. I grabbed this because it was highly rated.

It was kind of disappointing in reality. It wasn't awful or useless by any stretch, but it was very average. It really felt like using a water based lube because it was thin, and reapplication was necessary.

I found that this doesn't leave a sticky, gummy mess at all, and I don't feel like I have to rush off and clean up immediately after use which is a huge perk. It doesn't absorb as nicely as water based lubes, but that is honestly to be expected with silicone. It comes up pretty easily by wiping it away and comes completely clean with soap and water.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Dries up too fast
    • Reapply often


This came in a plastic bag for shipping. The bottle is very nice with a flip top. It could be operated one handed if you are very dexterous. We are not. It doesn't leak which is awesome in a house full of clumsy people.
    • Does not leak

Personal comments

I have been having a very hard time trying to write a review of this. It just wasn't special in anyway. I couldn't really figure out what to say about it. For the price I spent on this I am so disappointed. I was expecting a very nice product based on the reviews, but it just seems so average after using it.
Follow-up commentary
This stuff is pissing me off. It was on the nightstand and got knocked over with the lid sealed, and it leaked and made a huge mess. It is still too thin and we never end up using it.

    A silicone lube you had to reapply? Sux great review tho, I always find lube reviews hard
  • wwwww
    It's odd that it needed reapplication as a silicone based lube. Usually those are pretty long lasting.
  • Jimbo Jones
    I think that the thin consistency of this lube is what ruins it for anal sex. I like a thicker lube for that activity. It is unusual to have to reapply for a silicone lube. Thanks for the review.

    Thanks for a great review! Other reviewers have described this as pretty thick for a silicone lube...have you tried other silicone lubes? And if so, which ones were thicker??
  • Ayumi
    Thanks for the review. I'm sorry it didn't work out. This sounds similar to my experience with a lubricant I just reviewed, WonderLand pure silicone lube. It sounds thicker than this one, but was just as messy and my partner found it annoying.

    Thanks for the review, good to know this stuff is so runny! I don't want to be re-applying a silicone lube either, so thanks!
