As a friend recently proclaimed after rubbing a premium silicone lubricant between her fingers, “wow, that’s as slippery as ice skating in roller skates.” So, what’s the deal with silicone lubricants? That’s a long topic, but here’s a couple of quick thoughts:
The upside, silicone lubricants are incredibly slick and can make for long lasting slipperiness and slickness. They’re typically unscented for those that are looking for something without scent. And, silicone is generally considered inert (ie. they aren’t bad for you per se). The downside? They may require clean-up afterward (you’ll be coated with it, which is what makes it so slippery and slick for such a long time). They can stain your sheets. Some people feel they’re so slick you’ll lose some of the sensation they’re looking for. And, they may not have ingredients that will nurture and enhance your well being like organic aloe vera or Vitamin E. Even if they do, check the label to find out just how much they have and just how natural the products are.
If you’re looking for slick and slippery, they’re great. If you’re looking for as natural as nature, you may want to look for something like Aloe Cadabra, which will enhance and nurture your body while providing a sensual feeling just like you’re used to.
