Review: Sliquid H2O


Without lubricant, your car engine would seize up completely or tear itself apart. Without alcohol, the classic social lubricant, the rate of reproduction would plummet and the human race would rapidly become extinct (at least that's what it seems like here in Britain). Lubricant, metaphorically, makes the world go round.
When it comes to sex and sex toys, good lubrication is also incredibly important. And this lubricant is incredibly good. So without further ado, let us introduce you to one of our absolute favourite products - this is Sliquid H2O



He says:
My own use of this lube extends only as far as vaginal intercourse. I find for anal sex with Lucy and penetration of myself with toys, something with a thicker consistency (a) stays in place better and (b) provides more "padding". This lube is very slippery, and, as it uses a cellulose derivative rather than the more usual glycerine as a thickener, is completely non-sticky. I know some people have written about this drying out more quickly than other water-based lubricants, but in my experience this isn't the case. Furthermore, if after a long session this does start drying out, it is very easily rehydrated with a "glob" (the technically recognised term) of saliva.


All I really need say in conclusion is that Sliquid is the only lube I have experienced that doesn't ruin my post-coital bliss by immediately driving me to the shower or sink in an effort to remove a sticky mess.
She says:
Oh where would I be without you, you glorious little bottle of slippiness! As Alex has said, this is our number one lube for any vaginal play - be it sex or toys, and I can't sing its praises highly enough! I'll try not to repeat Alex's comments too much as I full-heartedly agree with everything he has said. There are a couple of little nuggets of information I'd like to add.

Firstly, packaging - you can see from our pics that it's very sleek and stylish, adding a feel of luxury to the product. The bottle clicks open at the top, this mechanism is quite secure and we've never had any problems with lube leaking out whilst in storage. One issue we do have with it though is that the plastic is quite firm, so when you're running low it gets more difficult to get the lube out. This is easily rectified by storing it upside down when close to the bottom as it will sit on its lid quite nicely - but maybe not an option if you're keeping it in a smaller drawer.

Secondly, cost. It's not the cheapest lube around but it is definitely value for money. A little goes a long way, we tend to find one of the large bottles lasts us about 4-6 months. It also comes in a smaller bottle which is perfect for taking on holiday with you.

Furthermore it is completely odourless, tasteless, colourless and non-sticky. This is because it's glycerine and paraben free - which of course brings added health benefits, making it safe to use and much less likely to give you thrush. It's also worth mentioning that it has never stained any of our clothing or bedding.

What I really love about Sliquid H2O is that it just seems to enhance your natural juices. You don't feel like you're using a lubricant, you just feel wonderfully wet!

    1. As we have slipped* in somewhere above, this lube is completely tasteless (a perfect match for us some would say...)
