I haven't tried many lubes, but this is my favorite so far. There are some VERY in-depth review on here, so I'll make mine quick. Very smooth and longer lasting than Sliquid's water-based lubes. It has a bit of a smell to it, but not a bad smell--fruity almost. It looks a bit like semen, which could be a good or bad thing, but be warned. It doesn't bother me any, but it's not a bonus either.
Texture and material construction: Sliquid Silk is a thin hybrid personal lubricant made with a mostly water base. It contains 12% silicone which allows it to last slightly longer than water based lube, while still maintaining water based lube qualities such as absorption and easy clean up. The combination of lubes, accompanied by some cream emollients, created a very silky texture. It’s thin and runny, but it also soft and slick to the touch. By the feel, you can definitely tell that there is silicone lube present; however, the oily feeling silicone lube normally has is muted by the water based. This gives it a smooth and, for lack of a better word, mildly creamy feel; kind of like a thin, slick, moisturizer. Visually, this lube is milky white but turns clear when rubbed in. Unlike some other Sliquid products, it does have both a taste and smell. The flavor is kind of tangy with a mellow aftertaste. It’s not terrible but it’s not particularly pleasant either. Also, it leaves your tongue feeling coated, which I am not a fan of. I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for oral play. As for the smell, it’s not unpleasant. I think it smells a bit like ripe uncooked plantains, but with a slight chemical undertone. It sweet smelling but not overwhelming. For me to actually smell it I have to put it right under my nose. So if you don’t like the smell, it really shouldn’t pose a problem. In use, the lube feels very much like natural lubrication, making it ideal for masturbating with fingers. Furthermore, because it’s has the thin slick cushioning of silicone, yet maintains water based lube qualities, you get to 1) feel the natural texture of your toys without it being dampened by a thick lube layer and 2) retain a level of control over your toy that is lost when pure silicone lube gets on the handle. Now, regarding longevity, it does last longer than water based lube but not by an outrageous amount. However, that's to be expected because it is mostly water based. So re-wetting/reapplying is still a necessity for prolonged sessions. Review Details: When I bought Sliquid Silk I really didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t have particularly high expectations simply because, after searching for some time, I finally found two lubes that I absolutely adore: Good Clean Love and Sliquid Organics Gel. They’re thick, slippery, have excellent ingredients, and just work really well with my body. I honestly didn’t think anything else would be able to compete. But, in the spirit of sexual exploration, I gave it a shot and I’m really glad I did. I found that in certain forms of play it actually has the upper hand over my other lubes. Now, when I first opened it and saw how runny it was, I was less than impressed. I love thick lubes and with Sliquid Silk being so thin, I was sure it would do nothing for me. However, I continued on and discovered that I really enjoyed the silky texture. It felt so natural. So I decided to do something that, since discovering vibrators, I almost never do; masturbate with my fingers. I put a little lube on my fingers and just spent some time massaging my vulva. The smoothness made my skin feel super soft while the thinness and oil like undercurrent of the lube prevented me from feeling like I was splashing through liquid. Also, it wasn’t so slippery (like silicone often is) that my hands just slid wherever. It felt more like massaging in a slicker version of moisturizer and left me feeling very much in control, which I prefer. Furthermore, I liked how long it lasted. I mean it definitely lasted nowhere near as long as silicone lube. But even with the tiny amount I used it outlasted my water based lube by a good bit. Now, after playing with just my fingers for a while, I realized I needed more stimulation if I was going to come. So I decided to use my Womanizer and my Nobessence Fling. This is where I was really impressed by the Sliquid Silk. I absolutely loved the way this lube allowed me to both experience the natural texture of the wood, while also being able to control the toy. With other lubes I’ve always found it to be either one or the other. With water based lube I found that I had great control over my toy but the thickness of the lube masked the woods texture. With silicone lube, I could feel the texture of the wood but the lube would get on the handle making it nearly impossible to control without washing it off with soap. Either way I wasn’t getting the full experience. With Sliquid Silk however, I got the best of both worlds. It helped take a dildo I'd judged previously as “a pricey toy that didn’t quite perform as expected” and make it one that I now have a much greater appreciation for. Plus, I loved the way this lube felt with my Womanizer. The suction and the way it felt gliding along my clit just felt smoother and more lush when using the Sliquid Silk. Afterward, cleanup was a breeze. Most of it absorbed into the skin and the rest was gone with the swipe of a baby wipe. Honestly, when it comes to vulva massage, wood toys, and using my Womanizer, Sliquid Silk is my new go to. For everything else though I have to stick with my other lubes. I still love thick lubes for most penetration and frankly, even though it says you can, I’m just not willing to put anything with even a touch of silicone near my precious Vixskin toys. I just value them way too much to risk it. But it’s ok though. I have no problem making this a niche lube in my collection. With the frequency that I use my Womanizer, believe me, this lube will not be neglected for long. I highly recommend.
Texture and material construction: Sliquid Naturals Silk is a hybrid lube, with high quality silicone added (12%) to the water-based lube, giving it a thicker, almost creamy texture. It comes in a short bottle (not likely to tip over on the nightstand). To dispense the lube, you press one side of the lid to raise the other side and squeeze/pour it out. Controlling the exact amount you get is tricky, but is isn't likely to spill. Review Details: If you love silicone lubes, you will probably be disappointed with Sliquid Silk. It is still definitely a water-based lube. It feels very natural (actually, it looks pretty natural, too), and has a softness to it that really appeals to me. While it doesn't last as long as a pure silicone lube, it is fairly long-lasting, and cleanup is much easier. A little goes a long way, too, so if even if you have to reapply, your bottle will still last a while. It also seems to be safe to use with silicone toys. I've tested it on Lelo, We-vibe, and Vixskin toys with no problems at all. Like all the other Sliquid products, it is vegan and cruelty-free, as well as glycerin and paraben free. If it didn't have a bitter aftertaste, it would probably be my all-purpose lube.
