Welcome back to Water!

After spending over a year looking for a good water based lube, I've found Maximus. I'm not going anywhere unless they come out with a Maximus II. There is a reason this lube has so many reviews, it rocks!
None (if you're not worried about Parabens)

extremely useful review
What is smooth, thick, clear, and comes out of a one handed pump? Ok, easy guess, Maximus water based lube.

Maximus is probably the highest rated water based lube on Eden Fantasys, now I know why. This is the thickest, smoothest, and least sticky water based lube I've ever used. I've been on silicone based lubes for a few years now and never really planned on using water based unless I was playing with silicone toys. After trying out Maximus, I think I'm back on water!

Yes, it does have the assortment of Parabens. It also has Propylene Glycol. Yes, some people have sensitivities to these. I've done some research into the Paraben debate. As far as this non-doctor can tell, it's ok in moderation (like aspartame).

Maximus comes in a 250 mL / 8.45 oz. pump bottle. This is my first lube with a pump handle...I'm spoiled now. I don't want to use a non-pump bottle anymore for lube. It's just so handy to have it on the bedside table. The nice thing about the packaging is that it is reusable. Maximus came to my door with a seal over the pump and wrapped in a plastic bag. Other than the words "A water-based sensual lubricant" you can't tell this is a bottle of lube. Maximus is so clear and mostly free of tell-tale bubble, you'd mistake it for a bottle of water....with a pump.

One advantage of water based lubes over the rest is that you can use it with pretty much any and every toy/device. The only real draw back from water based lubes is that you can't (generally) use them in water. A little bit of water will revitalize Maximus, a lot of water will wash it away.

Of the water based lubes I have used (even those without glycerin/glycol and parabens), this is the least tacky/sticky. As an experiment, I left some on my hand to see how tacky it got without washing it off. After a few minutes, it seemed to almost completely absorb into my skin.

Neat bit of info: Maximus comes from the Isle of Wight in the UK. You can take that to the bank.
I didn't have to reapply Maximus. This completely surprised me when I realized it. I've always needed to reapply every water based lube I've ever used.

The price is reasonable all around. It's very long lasting. I don't think I'll need to look around for another water based lube for a while.
Follow-up commentary
I still can't imagine my life without Maximus. I'm really sad it's out of stock as of the writing of this follow up. I have one bottle left and need to pick up another. Trust me, you really want to have two bottles, one for each side of the bed!

Admittedly, this has spoiled me too. I have to have an easy one-handed pump top on all my lube now. It's a must!
