Lubricants are funny things, coming in different consistencies, tastes and colours. Sometimes I feel that once I have tested one lube in a range it is like I have tried them all.
I mean, what can you say about a lubricant, to make it sound like it’s one in a million? But saying this, I do like to try out brands that I have not used before.
X Lube is a different type of sex lubricant, it’s in powder form and is concentrated. I received a bottle that holds 3.5 oz of powdered lube, which states that it can make up to a whooping 20 litres of lubricant!
It is different from any other essential product that I have used or even reviewed, as it is concentrated and you are able to make up your own lubricant, as and when you would like to do.
X Lube is manufactured by a company called XLUBE.com.
The powder is white in colour and has no odour to it.
To mix it up so that you can form your lubricant, you will need to use 2.5g of the xlube powder (about a cap full). Make sure that you had removed any lumpy bits in the powder by crushing it down into the cap.
x lube Fill a bottle up (I found that an empty fizzy drinks bottle of 500ml, works very well) with near hot water and empty the cap-full of powder into said bottle. Screw the lid of tightly and then give the bottle a good hard shake for about 2 minutes. You will need to leave the bottle to stand for about an hour or two. I found that leaving it for 2 hours, was fine.
I did try making the powder up with cold water but it didn’t seem to gel together, the same with making it in a bowl but I really do lack patience, so the bottle did just fine.
As X lube is water based, it is fine to use with whatever sex toy of your choosing. You can make it slightly thicker by adjusting how much powder that you place into the water.
I would advise that when making up your lubricant to do so over a sink or in the bath, as it can get a little messy.
I had to make up this lubricant 2 times, before I was able to finish with a decent outcome. But with my finished mixture I was more than happy to store and keep it. You have to store the made-up lube in a container that you can place a lid on. Xlube do advise that once you have made your mixture, you need to use it within 14 days
The consistency of X lube, is that of an off-white colouration and is thickish for a water-based lubricant. It is odourless and doesn’t leave a horrid residue feeling behind.
Ododi has the X Lube on sale for £21.99 GBP. It may seem like a pricey deal but remember that you are getting 20 litres of lubricant that you can make as and when you need too. There isn’t n expiration date for the concentrated powder, so you really are getting brilliant deal When you think about it, the average price of a water-based lubricant is round £8.00 GBP and that will give you a handful of uses.
ododi are always a pleasure to deal with, their customer service is top notch and over the years, I can’t fault them. Their postage is prompt and their packaging is secure and discreet.
I would recommend the X Lube to my blog readers, it’s a good quality lubricant for a brilliant price!
