Liquid Silk – Lubricant Review
Lube Reviewed - Liquid Silk
Our Rating -
Liquid Silk Lubricant is one of the most popular lubes available. From the silky texture, which you can see in the bottle, to the handy pump, it promises to help you have a good time without any hassle!
Liquid Silk stands out from its competitors. This isn't a transparent lube like most. Instead, it's opaque. From its very appearance, it looks like it feels silky and creamy rather than sticky or gel-like.
The lube also comes in a pump bottle, so you can pump with one hand and catch the other in your hand or even apply it to your body or that of your partner. The pump will be locked when you receive it, and you can lock it to keep your nightstand or suitcase safe.
Liquid Silk has been around the block or time a two, and you're unlikely to find a lube lover who hasn't used it or at least heard of it. Liquid Silk sets it apart with its creamy texture, which is apparent before you even apply it to your body!
It looks similar to Elmer's Glue, which you probably haven't used since elementary school. Unfortunately, some people feel like Liquid Silk smells similar to Elmer's Glue, which is a total turnoff.
You should also know that Liquid Silk contains parabens, which many companies are moving away from and many people prefer not to allow in contact with their bodies. Parabens serve as a preservative in some personal lubricants as well as many cosmetics, but they have recently come under fire for their potential to disrupt estrogen in the human body. This means that the chemicals in Liquid Silk may have a connection to cancer. However, the FDA still finds parabens safe.
Finally, Liquid Silk does contain silicone, so you don't want to use it with silicone sex toys. However, it is condom compatible.
HOW DOES IT COMPARE?
Here's another lube with Silk in its name (and a similar name to boot!). Sliquid Silk has a similarly silky feeling when you use it. However, Sliquid Silk costs more than Liquid Silk.
If you're conscientious about what you put into your body and how the products you consume are processed, then Sliquid Naturals Silk is the way to go. It's made in the USA. The formula contains no glycerin or parabens. You'll find silk formulas both in Sliquid's organic and hybrid (water and silicone) lines. Both are vegan and pH balanced, and the organic formula isn't tested on animals.
Many of Gun Oil's lubes are oil-based and intended for male masturbation, but you can definitely use Gun Oil Loaded with a partner as it's condom safe. A milky white appearance looks just like cum while it feels silky during use. The thickness is ideal for anal sex.
The low silicone content means it should be toy safe. The ingredients list contains neither glyercin nor parabens.
Make no mistake, Spunk Lube is intended to look like cum. It's available in a much smaller pump bottle than Liquid Silk, which might be good if you're not sure how much you're going to like the formula. You can also buy it in a half-gallon container if you use lube like there's no tomorrow!
The creamy lube is a hybrid, containing both water and silicone to achieve the perfect consistency.
