Review: Super Slik Lube 100ml

100ml tube of water-based lube in a clear bottleMy favourite lube ever! I’ve been using this one since about 2008 and that doesn’t seem like it will change any time soon!

Rating: ★★★★★ 5/5

“One thing I absolutely adore about Sextoys.co.uk is that every lube purchase I have made has come in a sealable plastic bag to prevent it from leaking anywhere. I have never had a purchase where the lubricant has leaked, either – they really do go above and beyond for their customers and I appreciate it a hell of a lot. So, the review:

Super Slik looks and feels like the body’s own natural lubricant, with a very delicate smell to boot! It’s a little sticky but not overly so and washes from you very easily under warm water. The best thing about it is that you don’t need to use very much to get a good result, as a little really does go a long way. I’ve used it anally and vaginally, as well as for hand jobs or fingering and it is just great. The price is pretty amazing for the value you get as well.

Packaging-wise, HERRCO have done a good job too; it’s easy to squeeze every last bit of lube from the tube, which is perfect when you really want to get going. It’s also very easy to reseal and wipe off, if you accidentally get some on it. I much prefer the tube version to the pump one for this reason.

Overall, I really couldn’t recommend this lube enough. If you’re looking for some lube, definitely get this! I don’t think I’ll ever use anything else, given the choice!”

Front and back view

UPDATE (08/09/2012):INGREDIENTS

Aqua (Water)
If you don’t know what water is, please stop looking up lubes and educate yourself on the very basics of life. In all seriousness though: this component is extremely safe and to be expected from a water-based lube!

Glycerine BP
Glycerine is used to improve smoothness, provide lubrication and it prevents skin dryness with its moisturising properties. It can apparently cause mild laxative effects if used anally but in doses much larger than you will use for lubrication.

Mono Propylene Glycol USP
Mildly orally toxic and can cause an allergic reaction in some people though it is Generally Recognised As Safe by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration.

Hydroxyethylcellulose
A gelling and thickening agent derived from cellulose that is in a lot of other household products.

Sodium Methylparaben
This is a food additive with the E number E219 which is used as a preservative.

Sodium Ethylparaben
Apparently used as an anti-fungal preservative with the E number E215.

Sodium Polyparaben
Otherwise known as Sodium Propylparaben, this also acts as an anti-fungal preservative. It’s E number is E217.

Parabens are currently one of the issues in the lube world that other reviewers are upset over. I didn’t know what they were at all, so the lovely Ness explained them a little to me in an email:

[Parabens] occur naturally in some things, such as blueberries and grapefruit. However when we eat them, the toxic properties are filtered through the liver before reaching the blood stream. When using lubes parabens can be absorbed via the pores of the skin, skipping going through the liver beforehand. Now parabens aren’t naturally absorbent, but because lube also contains chemicals which act as moisturisers this increases the absorption rate. Also, lube isn’t applied to any normal skin; it’s used around the genitals where the skin membranes are more delicate and more absorbent.

What does this mean for you? Well, basically parabens are not great when you absorb them through the skin but Ness doesn’t think they’re particularly damaging in small controlled doses. I must stress that she is still researching about them so this is the limit of current knowledge and may not apply later on. If you want to use this lube you can, and I shall be continuing to do so unless a better lube pops up on the market.”
