leJournal – Sliquid Naturals H2O Review
You’ve probably heard about Sliquid before. It seems to be every blogger’s favorite brand of lubricant. I’ve heard so many people raving about it that is has convinced me to purchase a bottle and see for myself. I must admit that I am not a fan of water-based lube (I prefer silicone). I have used a couple of other water-based lubricants in the past, which I hated, simply because they would either cause irritation and discomfort or dry out within a few minutes of use. However, I need water-based lube with most of my sex toys, so I had no other choice but to seek for one that I would like. I went for Sliquid natural H2O out of all their other options because it is the simplest one, and I was hoping that it would solve those issues. I have heard so many good things about it that the bar was set very high.
I find this lubricant to be better suited for penetration. It does not get sticky that way and doesn’t dry out as quickly. In fact, I have only used it with dildos so far (other forms of penetrations are out of the menu at the moment), and it makes silicone ones very comfortable to use. It doesn’t need to be reapplied mid-use like most water-based lubes, or like when it’s used externally. However, I don’t know if it would last long enough during penetrative sex with a partner, as for me, that kind of sex lasts longer than with a dildo.
The description on the bottle says: “To reactive, reapply or add water“. When I first read this, I thought “yeah, like with any lube, if you reapply some it’ll be more lubricated”, but it turned out that the lube really does reactivate itself when you add water! I found that out the first time I went to wash my hands after had used it. The lube had dried out on them but when I put them under the water, I could instantly feel the lube again, with its silky texture as I rubbed my hands together to wash it off. Because of that, this lubricant can be a bit harder to wash off, but soap does the trick perfectly.
It also has a plus side, as it means that a woman’s natural lubrication keeps reactivating the lube in use, making it last longer. It also mixes so well with it and has just the right texture. I find it feels just like it, which is fantastic.
