The 6 Best Lube Injectors for Pinpoint Precision
How I Reviewed the Best Lube Injectors
I’ve always found that if you want an honest and unbiased review then word of mouth is the best way to go. People talking to other people, giving them the lowdown on the pros and cons of a product and saying – without any bias – yes, I would buy this, or no, I’d avoid it. Well word of mouth isn’t so easy on the internet, but that’s the kind of vibe we’re going for in this lube injector review. I don’t want to beat around the bush or just give you the usual bland happy-go-lucky PR spiel that manufacturers give you. Instead, I want to give you the honest truth about these lube injectors. Because that’s not only what you deserve, but it’s what you NEED before making a purchase!

The 6 Best lube injectors in Test
Lube Tube Applicator Syringe (2 Pack)
Natural lubricant doesn’t always do the trick. This is especially true when it comes to anal sex, but applying lube “the old-fashioned way” can get pretty messy. Thankfully, this 2-pack of Lube Tube Applicator Syringes makes the entire process a breeze. Simply pick out your favorite lube, remove the cap off the end of your syringe, fill up the syringe, then use the applicator to apply lube where needed. Don’t need to use it right away? Just put the cap back on & you’ll be ready to lube when the time is right!
These Lube Tube Applicator Syringes are simple & straightforward: you fill them up then apply lube where needed. Whether you’re using them as a vaginal or an anal lube injector, the process is the same, so there isn’t much that can go wrong. The capped design means you can get your lubricant launcher ahead of time without worrying about wasting lube, which is nice. Quality control is the only issue you might run into, although this doesn’t seem to be a widespread issue. Some syringes might end up with sharp edges or noticeable seams from the manufacturing process, which isn’t great if you’re trying to shove the syringe in your anus. Still, as long as you check the items upon arrival before attempting to use them, this shouldn’t be an issue (and this is a good practice to get into regardless of what you’re using).
Lubricant Applicator Syringes 0.17 fl oz (3 Pack)
Why settle for one lube launcher (or even two) when you could have three? For only $10, this set of Lubricant Applicator Syringes includes three syringes, one rubber cap, and plungers to help streamline lubricant application while minimizing wasted lube. Designed for single-handed use, these syringes feature finger loops large enough for most fingers and can hold up to a maximum of 0.17 oz of your favorite lube per syringe. Prep two syringes, put the cap on one for use later, and use the other one to get the lubrication process started. Simple, universal, and easy to use, this set is perfect for anyone who enjoys sex but struggles with proper lubrication.
In terms of the lube injectors themselves, there isn’t anything we can complain about. Although basic, they work well and don’t suffer from any design or manufacturing process flaws. The limited 0.17 oz capacity might be a bit on the low side, but the kit contains three syringes which should hold enough lube for your average session. Unfortunately, despite containing three lube launchers inside the packaging, they don’t all come with caps: in fact, the set only comes with one rubber cap (there’s also only one plunger). This really limits the practicality of the set since you can only “safely” store one syringe for later. We’re not sure why these seemingly essential items were left out, but we’d recommend just buying two sets ($20) so you’ll have two caps and two launchers.
b-Vibe Lube Applicator 3-Piece Set
Obviously designed with the beginner in mind, b-Vibe has completed this 3-piece set with everything you’ll need to start enjoying anal sex sans lube. Alongside three applicators (each one is individually wrapped and comes with its own cap) you’ll also receive a usage/cleaning guide for the applicators, b-Vibe’s “Guide to Anal Play”, and a mesh storage bag for simplified drying/storage. If you’re planning on enjoying anal sex with multiple partners, this kit can help ensure that each partner gets their own applicator, allowing you to engage in safe sex practices while having fun in the process!
Measuring only 0.5 inches in diameter with an insertable length of 3.4 inches, these lube injectors are definitely butt-friendly, even for the anal beginner. b-Vibe doesn’t advertise the liquid capacity of each injector, but since each applicator comes with its own cap, you can pre-fill multiple syringes if needed. This anal lube syringe set costs a bit more than some other options, but considering it also includes a storage bag, a usage/cleaning guide, and b-Vibe’s “Guide to Anal Sex”, we would argue it provides an excellent value for beginners. That said, if you’re experienced with anal sex and simply require the applicators, you could probably save money by purchasing an alternative set instead.
Extra Large Lubricant Applicator 0.5 fl oz
Many lube injectors lack in both storage capacity and insertable length. The Extra Large Lubricant Applicator solves both of these problems in one product! Easy to fill directly from the bottle, the applicator can hold up to 0.5 ounces of your favorite lubricant and inserts up to five inches inside of your bum for deep, effective lubrication. This is especially helpful for people whose partners are well-endowed since many applicators only reach 3-4 inches inside. Made of plastic (and complete with a rubber cap), this item is simple, effective, and can be used with one hand. Tired of needing multiple applicators for a single session? Solve your problems with the Extra Large Lubricant Applicator!
This lube injection device is very simple, from design to the included accessories. The applicator comes with a rubber cap for spill-free storage, but that’s all you get: there aren’t any special guides or even a storage bag included with the syringe. Of course, the applicator only costs $10 so we can overlook the lack of accessories, although it would have been nice if the packaging was a bit more sturdy so it could be used for long-term storage. The big appeal of this device is its increased capacity and five inches of insertable length. Despite being larger than many other applicators, the injector is still very easy to insert and should meet the lubrication needs of nearly everyone who purchases it. There’s nothing particularly special about this lube injection device, but if you don’t already own one (or just need a larger one), this is a great choice.
Colt Master Cleansing Syringe 3.4 fl oz
In many aspects of life, size matters. If you’re a strong believer in this principle then, chances are, the lube injectors we’ve mentioned so far have probably failed to live up to your expectations. Thankfully, they’re not all just dinky syringes that hold less than an ounce of lube: meet the Colt Master Cleansing Syringe! Holding up to 3.4 fl ounces of lubricant at one time, you won’t need to worry about fiddling around with more than one applicator during anal sex. Instead, simply choose your favorite lube, fill the Master Cleansing Syringe (or don’t, if you don’t need that much), apply the lubricant when needed, and enjoy some much-needed “fun time”!
Starting with the negatives: first things first. This lube injector costs $25, which somewhat makes sense considering its large size but still seems overpriced nonetheless. It doesn’t come with any accessories—such as a storage case—and the finger loop might be too small for those with large fingers. Despite these few flaws, the vast majority of people will be satisfied with the Colt Mast Cleansing Syringe. Not only does its internal capacity vastly surpass the majority of its competitors, but the device itself can be dismantled for an easier cleaning experience, increasing its overall value if you’re planning on routinely using the item. Whether you’re looking for a dedicated anal lubricant applicator or just want an alternative to a douche, the Cleansing Syringe should leave you satisfied with the product despite its somewhat more expensive price tag.
Boneyard The Skwert Lube Injector
Many devices are created for the sake of simplicity, and the Boneyard The Skwert Lube Injector does just that. If you’re tired of using two-step lube injectors that require you to remove lube from the bottle and then inject it into yourself, a one-step solution might be the best option for you. The Skwert is designed to screw directly onto your chosen bottle of lube, eliminating an unnecessary step while allowing you to get to the action sooner. The package includes both a small & a large bottle cap, allowing you to use most bottles of lube with this device. Using a single-finger pump design, The Skwert delivers simplicity and effective lubrication for only $16!
This device isn’t your typical anal lube applicator, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. While you likely won’t get much use out of this device if your preferred lubes all come in oddly shaped or sized bottles, The Skwert is designed to work with most lube bottles, meaning standard-sized bottles should work just fine. The device screws directly onto the bottle, meaning the only extra steps will be screwing it on & taking it off after. Actually, you don’t even need to do that if you don’t want to: The Skwert comes with a cap for traveling! The design and your choice of bottle might limit your positioning or make injection uncomfortable initially, but once you get used to the device, you’ll probably be using it for a while. If you don’t already own a lube injector or generally use the same lube for a while, then this product is a no-brainer purchase!

The Best Lubes to Use with a Lube Injector
A lube injector without any lube is just… well, it’s just a glorified syringe! Here are a few lubes worth checking out (if you don’t have some on-hand already!).
Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lubricant 8.5 fl oz
This water-based lubricant is gentle on skin, condom-friendly, easy to clean up after, and comes in an 8.5oz pump bottle.
What's the Point of Lube Injectors?
The primary function of lube injectors is to allow the user(s) to apply lubrication to hard-to-reach places. This works great if you’re trying to internally lubricate yourself (such as when you’re prepping for anal sex) since this can be nearly impossible to do “ by hand”. Alternatively, lube injectors can also be enjoyed by those with a medical kink since the injectors help add to the roleplay!
How to Use Lube Injectors
Using a lube injector is a fairly simple process, but don’t worry—I’ll walk you through it anyway!
Select Your Choice of Lubricant
Lube injectors work with any type of lube, so no worries there. Just make sure that your choice of lube works with your chosen activities!
Fill Up the Lube Injector
Your device may be a bit different, but most lube injectors require you to fully compress the syringe, poke the tip into the lube, and then pull the tip upwards. This will draw the lube into the syringe, allowing you to either cap the injector for future use or use it right away.
Apply the Lube
Using the lube injector, apply lube as needed to the desired area(s).
How to Clean Lube Injectors
Since most lube injectors are made from plastic, they can be cleaned but not sterilized. Just like you would a dish, clean your lube injector(s) using antibacterial soap and warm water. After you’ve thoroughly washed them, pat as much of the surface dry as possible using a towel and then leave the injector(s) out to air dry before storing them away. You can shorten the air-drying process significantly by using a fan!
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
What are Lube Injectors?
A lube injector is a device (commonly designed like a syringe) that allows the user to precisely and accurately apply lubricant as needed, specifically in hard-to-reach locations. Sometimes it can be a bit of an awkward process putting lube where it needs to be. Squirting it from the tube or bottle might result in it going somewhere it doesn't need to be. Using your fingers can result in a bit of an inconvenient mess. That's why lube injectors are so perfect - they give you the precision of fingers while delivering a decent amount of lube exactly where it needs to be!
