  • Washes off easily
  • Toy and condom compatible


  • Gets sticky
  • Contains parabens and glycerin

As a water-based lube, ID Glide will add moisture to your sexual activities while remaining easy to wash off. It won’t stain your linens.

It’s compatible with condoms, dental dams, toys and even insertable silicone birth control devices such as the cervical cap.


Look no further than your nearest sex toy shop to find a bottle of ID Glide personal lube. In fact, your local pharmacy might even carry this brand, which is both affordable and well known!

ID Glide is just one of many water-based lubes available on the market. You might have tried it before but the new bottle designs are more contemporary and sleek than they once were.

ID Glide is readily available and won’t break the bank, so it doesn’t hurt to try. If you know that your body is sensitive so glycerin or you’re worried about the potential link between parabens and cancer, you might want to skip this lube, however. The ingredients list is as follows:

  • Water/Aqua/Eau

  • Vegetable Based Glycerin

  • Propylene Glycol

  • Cellulose Gum, EDTA, Carbomer

  • PEG-90M

  • Tetrahydroxypropyl Ethylenediamine

  • Methylparaben

  • Sodium Benzoate

  • Potassium Sorbate

ID Glide suffers from some of the same drawbacks as other lubricants with a water base. Although it feels slick to begin with, ID Glide can become sticky as it quickly begins to dry. Water or more lube will fix the situation, but it’s not as long-lasting as silicone-based products.

The plus side is that you don’t need to worry about using ID Glide with any product that could potentially react with a silicone-based lube, and this includes sex toys, safer sex accoutrements and even your cervical cap. ID Glide is also condom compatible, with it won’t hold up in the shower because it so easily washes off with water. On the other hand, this makes ID Glide perfect for washing up quickly.

This formula is thinner, but ID Glide is also available as a thicker jelly if you prefer that.

For those who use a lot of lube, ID Glide is available up to 64 ounces. If you don’t use your bottle of ID Glide quickly, it can evaporate and become thick and unusable.


Passion Lube

You may find that the performance of Passion Lubes is as generic as the bottle. It works in a pinch, but it loses efficacy quickly, becoming sticky as it does. Unless you need a much larger container (up to 55 gallons!), consider ID Glide over Passion Lube.

Lush Personal Lubricant Water Based Sex Lube

Lush personal lube comes in a modern bottle that looks more like a beauty product than a lube, which might be preferential if you need your sex accessories to be discreet. The ingredients list is quite similar to ID Glide.

Natural Intimate Personal Lubricant for Sensitive Skin

Isabel Fay offers a water-based lube that contains neither parabens nor glycerin. It’s made in the USA for those who are concerned where products originate. The company offers a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with its performance.
