Master and me ran out of our very favorite go-to lube, and we needed to get a new one. Since the ones we liked best were out of stock on our favorite sites we decided we were going to go with a brand we were familiar with, though we did need to try a new formula. Enter Sliquid H20 Natural Lubricant (Aff).
I’ve pretty picky about lubricant in general because I find that my bits tend to be very sensitive to many different ingredients and once I find a lube that works the only way I tend to try another lube is when I can no longer get the one I want. Master and me have both tried and liked a few variations of Sliquid (Aff) in the past, with only a few minor drawbacks so we figured we would give the natural one a go.
Sliquid Natural is designed to mimic the body’s natural lube and is vegan, paraben, glycerine free and even kosher. It is a water based lubricant so you can use it with any toy you like, and it washes off very easily in the shower.
The ingredients are: purified water, plant cellulose, guar conditioners, potassium sorbate and citric acid. It’s a simple and short list.
The bottle we purchased is 8.5 ounces, but you can also purchase a 2 ounce or sample (pillow pack) size.
The bottle has a flip top cap, and I find it to be pretty easy to use. It hasn’t clogged up on us or anything. The bottle is made of a firm yet soft enough plastic that you can squeeze it without it being a pain in the rear and you can easily get a drop (or several) out.
There’s no odor at all from the lube, which is excellent if you are sensitive to such things! I did detect a very slight taste, but it is very mild and hard to describe. This shouldn’t be something you put in your mouth anyway (it isn’t designed as a flavored lube for oral sex) but if you get a little bit on your tongue it’s barely noticeable which is a nice plus.
In use, I found this variant of Sliquid to be a bit disappointing. It’s okay, but it isn’t what I’ve come to expect from Sliquid. I found it to feel okay going on, it’s a bit on the thin side which is what I expect unless I’m specifically using Sliquid Sassy Booty so that didn’t bother me. However, when we started to play with it, I found that it would dry up fairly quickly and it felt kind of “thick” after only a couple of minutes. Rewetting it helped a little bit, but if you do this by adding more lube then you feel like there’s just this thick wet mess. I didn’t like it. If you add a bit of water, it does thin things out somewhat and make it more usable, but you have to do this a lot more often than I personally like. I don’t want to have to think about rewetting my lubes constantly. It takes away from play time.
Another thing which I didn’t like about this lube is that I got mild burning from it. I don’t get that with other lubes unless they contain parabens, and I’m not sure what caused it with this one, because it doesn’t contain parabens for sure. While this was an okay stand in, once my go-to lube comes back in stock I hate to admit it, but I will most likely shelve this one and it won’t come out unless it expires (to throw it away) or I’m waiting for more lube to arrive in the mail. Not my favorite Sliquid.
I’m going to give it two paws:
