This is what I like to call, the dream roundup! The 6 Best lubes available to buy right now, all in a carefully curated list from a lube expert like me! (I don’t mean to brag…) You might want a water-based option such as the System JO Water Based lube or perhaps a silicone-based lube like the Überlube Silicone Lubricant. I have put each lube through the same tests, such as pH testing and tackiness testing, to compare them to each-other and ensure you have your favorite features highlighted. So let’s find you a lube that will keep your naughty activities going all night long!

How We Test best lubes

We’re a team of 264 sex toy testers and 13 sex toy experts.

To find the very best best lubes, our testers tried and reviewed 32 different products in this category.

Bad or even just mediocre best lubes didn’t make the list!

In total, we’ve thoroughly tested and reviewed 832 toys over the past 6 years.

We even lab-tested some to get objective data.

How I tested the 6 Best Lubes!

This table highlights and compares the features of the 6 Best Water Based lubes. I have highlighted what I think are the most influential features when it comes to buying a lube:

Thickness: Thickness is a pretty important feature when it comes to picking a lube, especially if you want to use it for different things; like anal or sex with a large toy. The thickest lube in this roundup is the Intimate Earth Hydra which has a warming feature to it, that when rubbed on the skin it warms up. The thinnest lube, which I would recommending using with a partner or for personal masturbation, is the Sliquid H20. It feels natural and thin on the skin, imitating the body’s natural lubrication.

Price: I think the price of lube is an influential factor when it comes to buying, as you dont want to be spending a large amount for soemthign that doesnt even work!

Tackiness: 

This table shows the results of the tests I carried out on all the Water based lubes. I have compared all of their features in this table:

A Closer Look

Uberlube is said to be one of the top quality lubes on the market, with its premium glass bottle, its modern packaging, and its easy-to-use pump lid. This lube will provide more lubrication and help with friction during sex. It does not leave a sticky feeling after use but moisturizes the skin, making it feel soft and smooth after. It is easy to wash off the skin and doesn’t leave a stain on sheets. The pH of this lube is 6, meaning that it is more acidic. This is good as you want your lube to match your body’s natural pH, reducing the risk of an imbalance or infection. Uberlube is in the higher price bracket, but its quality of packaging and product reflect this. 

Pros

  • Beautiful glass bottle with an easy to use pump
  • Super slippery consistency
  • Stain-free
  • Doesn't contain preservatives, fragrances, parabens, glycerin, gluten or alcohol
  • Doesn't need much reapplication

Cons

  • Cannot be used with silicone sex toys
  • Not quite thick enough to ideal for anal sex
  • Pricey

Why I Chose It

This lube claims that it is the best of the best, and I would mostly agree! Uberlube has premium standard packaging and is a high-quality silicone lube, that is smooth and silky on the skin, but not getting tacky. It is one of the thinner lubes, making it feel more natural on the skin and when in use with a partner or toy. If you’re looking for a lube that would be better suited to anal activities, I would opt for a thicker more cushioning lube, such as the Pjur Back Door Anal Lube. As well, if you would like a lube that you know you won’t have to re-apply or worry that it isn’t going to last long enough, I would recommend a lube with a higher longevity reading, like the Pjur Original Silicone Lube. Overall, Uberlube is one of the greats. I would highly recommend this silicone lube to anyone needing a little more slip in their sex life.
