Worth Every Penny

At first glance, Eros Bodyglide might just look like an overpriced run-of-the-mill silicone lube but I promise that it is anything but. It is longer lasting and more natural feeling than almost anything else I've come across and if the price were twice as high, I'd still gladly purchase it over and over again.
slick, long lasting, no residue, no odor/flavor, feels natural
could use a flip top, expensive, can stain some fabrics

extremely useful review
Eros bodyglide by Pjur is one of the first silicone lubricants I was ever introduced to and is still at the top of my list. The product itself is an amazing, long-lasting, slippery goodness, and is the closest product I've found to natural lubricant.

Eros bodyglide is a silicone based lube - this means that it should not be used with silicone toys unless it is one of the few silicone toys on the market that is specifically formulated to withstand silicone lubricant. It is L-Arginine free, petro-chemicals free, paraben free, and glycerin free. It is condom safe and I personally have never had a reaction using it skin-on-skin (I have super sensitive skin, too!). It has no flavor and no odor making it great for people sensitive to the artificial flavor and scent chemicals, and for those looking for a simpler product.

What makes Eros stand out above the rest to me is how it feels and how long it lasts. It is the closest thing I've found to natural lubrication - it is slick and warms to your body quickly, but without being gummy or stringy or sticky or leaving any dry flaky residue. A few drops will also last me an entire session of toy play or partner sex, up to and sometimes over an hour. It's not a lube that requires re-application (unless you're going for marathon sex, whereas you might need another drop or two every couple hours) or that will dry on your skin and leave a sticky or clingy feeling. It also works well for toy play or sex in a water situation because it doesn't immediately dissolve when it comes into contact with water. It will hold up enough to keep the fun going, but when it's time to clean up, a washcloth and maybe a little hypoallergenic soap for sensitive areas should do the trick with no problems. I've ever fallen asleep or stayed in bed for a while with this lube on my skin and the consistency still doesn't get weird, it feels comfortable and natural and just adds a little more moisture to your most sensitive areas.

The biggest obvious drawback to this item is the price. It is double some of the other silicone lubricants on the market. However, when you consider that even some of the other good quality silicone lubes would require reapplication a few times per session and that this generally does not, it almost evens out. A few drops of this goes a long way and even though I've been buying Eros for years, I still only buy the small bottle (3.4 oz.) because it doesn't need to be replaced all that often.

My only other issue with this item is in the packaging. The bottle itself is actually very nice - sleek, firm, and black with a basic logo on the front and a back full of ingredient and material information. And the 3.4 oz size is small enough to tuck away if you need to keep your personal items hidden for whatever reason. The cap, however, can be a pain. It's a screw on / screw off cap - which is actually nice for travel or tossing in a bag because it won't leak. But when it comes down to the heat of the moment, it might be easier for some, including myself, to have a flip-top bottle that you can open and close with one hand. This isn't a huge drawback, and obviously hasn't kept me from patronizing the product for years, but it is something I wish they'd look into redesigning.

Lastly, I have had this, and other silicone lubricants stain some of my bedsheets - for whatever reason it washes out of some, but tends to stay on my sateen and jacquard sheets. It doesn't leave a horribly noticeable stain, but if you're looking for it you can see it. So if you're super concerned about your linens being completely spot-free, you may want to put down a towel or sex throw to protect your bedding.

Overall, I think it's a great and highly worthwhile product that I'd recommend to anyone. Again, except for use with silicone toys, it really is a go anywhere, do anything product that will never leave you frustrated or feeling like you need to flee to the shower.
I personally use this for solo or partner play involving glass or hard plastic toys, and sometimes for a little extra help when my natural lubrication isn't flowing as much as I might like. The consistency is on the thinner side - not a gel but not entirely a liquid either. It is on the thin side but holds its own more than well enough to stay where you put it and not run all over everything in its path while you're racing to get it to the desired location. I would highly recommend this for vaginal and anal sex because of it's long-lasting properties, and for anyone looking for a high quality lube for some alone time with their favorite (non-silicone) toys.

Another use I've found for this toy is for general feminine lubrication, not during sexual play. If you tend to either run a little dry, or just get a little dry or irritated from rough sex or masturbation, a drop or two of this will simply act as a great feminine moisturizer that feels great against your skin and will keep your parts moving smoothly against themselves all day long.
