Sliquid H2O

Sliquid H2O is a water-based lubricant that is designed for everyone to use, but especially for those who are sensitive down-there. The consistency is meant to emulate your body's natural lubrication, feels super smooth and not sticky, and can be used with all kinds of sex toy materials. Its formula is 100% vegan-friendly, using plant cellulose as a thickener instead of glycerine or other sugar derivatives that are in many other lubes. It's also free from parabens, sulphates, and many other ingredients that you'd rather not have anywhere near your genitals.

The Sliquid H2O: My Journey

My Personal Experiences with Sliquid H2O

I’m on a bit of a quest to find the perfect lube. As a woman with a very picky vagina, I’ve tried a whole host of different lubes to try and find one that doesn’t upset the delicate balance down there. I started off with a standard own-brand water-based lube from a local sex shop, but then I read about the potential side effects of glycerine and other sugar derivatives in lube, which some link to recurring infections and pH issues. In fact, I did enough research to write the ultimate guide to lube! Since then, I’ve bought all kinds of different glycerine-free, pH-balanced lubes, but many left something to be desired…

My Experiences with Sliquid H2O

Before I tried using my bottle of Sliquid H2O for any sexy stuff, I first had to take photos of it for this review, which involved pouring some out onto my hands. It was then that I realized that this lube is thinner than I expected, and I ended up pouring out way too much from the bottle. I would’ve preferred it to be a bit thicker so I could dispense it more easily and put it where I want it, but I did like that it felt quite velvety, and actually mimicked the body’s natural lubrication quite well. Plus, it’s not sticky at all, and won’t stain your sheets. Using it both with sex toys and during sex, I couldn’t really fault it. It did dry out, especially when more friction was involved (like during a handjob or with a vibrator), but it was easy to reactivate with some saliva or a dab more lube. And, the best part: I didn’t have any kind of reactions or weird burning sensations while using it, which can’t be said for other brands and formulas that I’ve tried.

What Makes It Special?

Since I have quite the collection of sex toys at this point, it’s a must to have a lube that’s compatible with all materials. Luckily, Sliquid H2O is a water-based lube that’s safe to use with all kinds of materials, including silicone. Before you even try it, you can see that they’ve put a lot of thought into the formula. Everything is natural, vegan, free from many ingredients that can cause irritation for some vagina-owners, and pH-balanced to match the natural pH of the vagina. It was all of these things that attracted me to it, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed at how sensitive and vagina-friendly it was to use.

Pros
Compatible with all sex toys
Vegan ingredients
Condom safe
Free from glycerine, parabens and more
No stickiness or staining
Low pH value
Cons
Fairly expensive
Dries out quite quickly
Thinner than other water-based lubes

Rating the Sliquid H2O’s design

Sliquid H2O Rating the Sliquid H2O’s design

There's not a ton to say about the design of the Sliquid H2O bottle. It's nicely designed, without looking overly sexual, but doesn't look terribly high-end either. For me, that's completely fine, seeing as it lives in a cupboard by my bedside. The bottle itself is quite rigid, with only a little bit of flexibility, and it has what's called a disc top cap, where you press down one side of the cap to reveal a small slot to dispense the lube from. It's not my favorite dispensing solution, but it works okay.

The Ease of use of the Sliquid H2O

Sliquid H2O The Ease of use of the Sliquid H2O

Sliquid H2O is quite easy to use. Since it's a water-based formula, it does dry out fairly quickly, but it's very easy to reactivate it with just a little bit of water or spit. It's also quite a runny formula, which makes it easier to dispense, but also means that it can get everywhere if you're not careful! Good thing that it won't stain your sheets. And finally, the bottle can be quite difficult to squeeze, since it's so rigid. Granted, you don't need to squeeze very hard to get some out, but it's still a bit annoying.

Superior Quality or Just Hype?

Sliquid H2O Superior Quality or Just Hype?

I have absolutely no doubts about the quality of Sliquid's H2O lube. There's a ton of information about the formulation and the manufacturing process of this product available, and they're very transparent about their ingredients. If you're looking for a high-quality, trustworthy lubricant brand, you can't go wrong with Sliquid.

Is the Sliquid H2O Worth the Investment?

Sliquid H2O Is the Sliquid H2O Worth the Investment?

Sliquid H2O isn't the cheapest option out there, but it's certainly not the most expensive either. Since it's a water-based lube, it's cheaper than many silicone- or oil-based alternatives, and is more versatile, too. You'll get the most value for money by getting the biggest 8.5 fl. oz bottle, but if you want to try it out first in a smaller size, it also comes in 2 and 4.2 fl. oz bottles. I received the medium size, but I could see myself buying the largest size once it runs out!

Pleasure Check: How does Sliquid H2O Measure Up?

Sliquid H2O Pleasure Check: How does Sliquid H2O Measure Up?

This lube did everything I wanted it to. It feels really natural, and works great both with sex toys and during partnered sex. It did dry out a bit over time — I noticed this especially when giving a handjob, where there was more friction involved. It was, however, easy to reactivate the slipperiness with some saliva or a bit more lube.

The Art of Presentation: The Sliquid H2O’s Packaging

Sliquid H2O The Art of Presentation: The Sliquid H2O’s Packaging

The Sliquid H2O lube doesn't come with any other packaging except the bottle itself. That's fine with me (less waste is always good, after all), but it might put off those looking for a more luxurious, high-end product vibe. The design on the bottle is fairly gender-neutral, which is also nice, and matches the other Sliquid Naturals products.

Material and care guide

Sliquid H2O Material and care guide

Sliquid H2O is a water-based lubricant with a plant-based formula. Its main ingredients are purified water and plant cellulose, which comes from cotton plants, and all the ingredients are vegan-friendly and compatible with all sex toy materials, including silicone (see image or below for the full list of ingredients). To wash it off from any sex toys, simply use a mild soap and water to remove any residue.

Conclusion

This is a fantastic lube, and one I would recommend to people of all genders and genitals. It's wonderfully formulated for those with sensitive vaginas, but also works well for all kinds of uses, whether those be with sex toys or partners. It does have some pitfalls that all water-based lubes fall victim to, like drying out over time, but I don't think it fairs particularly worse than other brands on that front. The only thing I deduct some decimal points for is the design and rigidity of the bottle — I'm thinking of decanting mine into a pump bottle!

How to use Sliquid H2O

Here are just some of the ways you can use Sliquid H2O lube to make your sexy sessions better...

Sliquid H2O
With Any Kind of Sex Toy
Sliquid H2O
Sliquid H2O is the perfect partner with all kinds of sex toys, regardless of the materials they're made from. You can generously lube up your favorite dildo or vibrator without worrying about damaging the silicone! It's perhaps not the best pick for anal play, but they do make an anal lube, too, which is thicker.
Sliquid H2O
During Penetrative Sex
Sliquid H2O
It's time that we banished the myth that you shouldn't need lube during sex if you're really aroused. There are all kinds of reasons why your body might not have made enough natural lubrication, from your current stage in the menstrual cycle to your levels of tiredness and more. Sliquid H2O is a great way to add some extra slipperiness to sex, making it more enjoyable and safer, too. Plus, it's totally condom-safe.
Sliquid H2O
To Accompany Manual Stimulation
Sliquid H2O
Handjobs, clitoral stimulation, fingering — you name it, it's better with lube. Which ever kind of manual stimulation you enjoy, add some Sliquid H2O lube to the mix and you'll experience more intense and pleasurable sensations. If you find that it's drying out, just add a small amount of saliva, water or more lube, and it will reactivate the lubrication.
Sliquid H2O
Anywhere Else on the Body
Sliquid H2O
Lube isn't just for your genitals! There are all kinds of erogenous zones across your body that will enjoy a dab of Sliquid H2O lube on them. Try a small amount on the nipples for a tantalizing cooling sensation and more intense stimulation, or add some to a sensual perineum massage.

FAQ

Is Sliquid H2O safe to use with silicone sex toys?
Yes, Sliquid H2O is a water-based lubricant that's 100% safe to use with silicone sex toys. In fact, it can be used safely with toys of any material.
Is Sliquid H2O suitable for anal play?
While Sliquid H2O can be used for anal play, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. It's quite a thin formula, and you would have to reapply and/or reactivate it often to make sure everything was sufficiently lubricated and won't cause you any discomfort or injury. Instead, you can try Sliquid's Sassy water-based anal gel lube, or Sliquid's Silk water- and silicone-based hybrid lube.
