H2O lube - lubricant by Sliquid, LLC - review by Fleurs Violettes

Add resource

Where did all that H2O go?

Great with toys, but not an all around lube. It is non-irritating, doesn't get sticky and has no strong scent. Unfortunately, it does not last very long, needs a lot of reapplying, and leaves a slight bitter taste.
Vegan, no irritating ingredients, doesn't stain, not sticky.
Disappears quickly, very thin, slight bitter taste.

This is a lube that seems to have a lot of great pros when you read about it, and looks good on paper, but in reality it doesn't work as well as you'd hope. If you want a lube that is water based, close to the real thing, free of strange smells, works with your silicone toys, vegan, hypoallergenic and good for sensitive skin, this might be the one for you. However, it disappears pretty quickly, and thus it is not ideal for external stimulation or anal sex. You'll need to reapply often, which will make you run out of lube quite quickly. Also, its slightly bitter taste makes it rather unsuitable for oral sex. If you have sensitive skin and want a lube to use mainly for penis in vagina sex, or to use with toys, Sliquid H2O might prove to be a great option for you.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This lube is very smooth and slippery, but also quite thin. It doesn't stay in place all that well. If you put it directly on a toy it might not be a problem, but if you pour it directly in your hand it will run between the cracks of your fingers, and everything will get messy. Fortunately, it doesn't stain. It's supposed to mimic natural lubrication and I think it does so quite well, perhaps it's a bit thinner. It is also very non-sticky, and doesn't leave any residue.

The bottle says it will get "reactivated" if a little water is applied, but I personally find that this does not work; it seems to disappear completely instead.

Taste / Aroma

The scent of Sliquid H2O is barely detectable, although if you use a lot you can sort of tell it's there. It smells a bit soap like, which is strange as it contains no such thing. However, the smell is not unpleasant, and as I said, it is barely noticeable. The taste on the other hand is faintly bitter, but I wouldn't claim that it is as strong as some other reviewers say it is. It is one of the least bitter non-flavored lubes I've tasted, but it is still rather bitter tasting and thus not ideal for oral sex. If you intend to have oral sex after using this, I suggest cleaning it off first.


Unfortunately, this lube doesn't last very long. You'll have to reapply it every few minutes, which gets rather tiresome. If you are prepared to reapply quite often, it might work with penis in vagina sex. Although for clitoral stimulation or anal sex, it is hopeless to use, as it disappears way too quickly. It does however work very well with toys, especially glass toys that don't need as much lubrication and thus less reapplying. When used with toys, this lube works really well as its thin consistency gives a good glide, without lessening the feeling like some thicker lubes do. The lube feels very natural, and when it disappears it leaves a soft, non-sticky feeling.


Sliquid H2O comes in a bottle with a flip-top lid, which makes for easy opening even if you're already slippery. The lid closes tight so there should be no accidental leaks. The bottle is not very discreet, as it becomes obvious if you read the label that it is a bottle of lube, as it says "natural intimate lubricant". This shouldn't be a problem however, as the bottle is small enough to fit into a drawer, if you want to keep it away from prying eyes.

Special Features

Sliquid H2O is vegan and also hypoallergenic, so it is absolutely non-irritating. The ingredients are purified water, plant cellulose (from cotton), cyamopsis (guar conditioners) potassium sorbate and citric acid.
Follow-up commentary
I appreciate that this lube has a short ingredient list and is absolutely non-irritating, but it just does not do what I need it to do. I'm sure that if you are looking for a little bit of extra glide during PIV-sex, this might be perfect, but otherwise I would not recommend it. Sliquid H20 has proven to be okay for external stimulation that needs some extra glide for me, but the constant reapplying, necessary as the lube dries out quickly, is less than ideal. I've found other lubes that suit me better, especially Liquid Silk, which however would not be a good choice if you are very sensitive and lube irritates you easily. Thankfully and unexpectedly, Liquid Silk works fine for me though, but I'm still looking for a good lube with more natural ingredients.

    Great first review and welcome to Eden. What are the ingredients? What other lubes have you tried that have worked better? If you need something that is similar but not as runny, try the Sliquid Organics Gel. I have used it for a few weeks now, and my wife and I love it.
  • Fleurs Violettes
    Thank you! I'm editing to list the ingredients right now.
    I've tried Maximus, Lelo personal moisturizer, plus a few lubes that were made by Durex, that are not on this site. Not anything else by Sliquid though. I think I'll try the Sliquid Organics Gel next time, sounds like it might work better for me.

    You're welcome. I haven't done my review of the Gel yet, but check out Lucky21. He did a really good comparitive review of a lot of Sliquid lubes.

    Great first review! I''m sorry this lube didn't work like you wanted it to.

    I really love Sliquid RIDE H2O a lot. It is thicker than regular H2O, it lasts a long time and it stays where you put it.

    You may want to try this one. From what I have read and seen, the Organic Sliquid has the same problem with not lasting long enough. I HATE having to stop sex to apply more lube. Sliquid RIDE H2O is thick enough for even anal sex and anal play.

    Good work on the review. I hope you find a good lube for your uses.
