Astroglide personal lubricant gel is a thicker formula lube, than other products in the Astroglide line.
I, myself, prefer water based lubricants, they seem to be less messy than the silicone kind and much more delicate on my female parts. So when Ododi asked me to review this lube, I was more than happy to take up their offer.
This Gel lubricant is water based, water soluble, pH balanced and it is safe to use with condoms. Below is a list of this lubricants ingredients:
* Purified Water
*Gluono Delta Lactone
* Sodium Hydroxide
The Astroglide Gel provides a more exhilarating experience, than your average water based lubricants. Upon first contact of the gel to skin, you can immediately see it’s thickness, I realized pretty quickly that you on really needed a small drop of this lube, due to it’s thickness, it does go a long way, when using it.
During use, it seems to warm up quicker than other water based lubricants, this isn’t an issue at all, in fact it feels good, a bit of temperature play is nothing to complain about!
It’s a clear coloration, with no smell and no taste that I could think of but if I had to compare it, I would suggest that, it simply tastes of water. There is no bad after taste or lingering smell. However, if you use a little bit too much, it does leave a rather horrid sticky residue. Even using a small drop can leave your hands feeling a little sticky but then as a thicker gel, I think it is something to be expected.
The personal lubricant that I was provided with, comes in a white/redish and purple casing. On the front of the package, you are provided with the product’s details and on the reverse, you are provided with a small paragraph of the product, directions, ingredients and warning that this product is not a spermicide or contraceptive. Although the mind does boggle as to why people would think that a lubricant is a form of contraceptive!
For 4 fl.oz, the RRP is £8.95 GBP’s. Is this price worth digging into your purse for? I would say so, used sparingly, this lube can last you a good while. It’s tasteless, odorless and pretty much a good all rounder (putting aside the sticky residue). The fact that it is condom safe, is a bonus too.
Over all, I was pretty impressed by the Astroglide personal lubricant gel and would recommend this lube to any one who was after something a little different than your average water-based lubricant.
