Sliquid Soul Review

Sliquid Soul

You already know how crazy I am about Sliquid. It’s one of my fave intimate care brands that makes some of my top choices of lubes, intimate washes and massage oils. Everything created by them is cruelty-free, vegan, pH-balanced, non-toxic, glycerin, propylene glycol and paraben free. Need I say more?

Until now you could choose between their many different kinds of water-based lube or pick some of their silicone or hybrid options. But this year Sliquid released their first oil-based lubricant, Sliquid Soul, that also doubles as massage oil or body moisturizer.

What is made of?

Sliquid Soul ReviewSoul‘s main ingredient is coconut oil, and we all know about the amazing qualities and health benefits of this nature’s best product. When used vaginally it fights yeast infections, it provides the skin with long-lasting moisture, helps regeneration and elasticity. And most importantly, it provides a super slick lubrication. As if that wasn’t enough, but the folks from Sliquid added to the formula several other amazing organic oils.

Full list of ingredients: Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Cocoa Seed Butter, Organic Almond Oil, Organic Apricot Kernel Oil, Natural Tocopherols (Non GMO)

The result is a stunning liquidy blend of pure slippery goodness. Because of how the oils are mixed, Sliquid Soul is unlike other oil-based lubes. It remains liquid, while most other oils stay solid and only melt upon contact with body heat.

What is it good for?

You can use Sliquid Soul for practically anything. Cracked heels, dry skin, after-shaving care, massage oil, frizz and split ends of your hair. Anything on your body that needs nourishment can benefit from it. That’s one of the reasons I like this oil-based lube so much — it’s so much more than just lube. I like traveling smart and packing light, so Sliquid Soul has me covered and replaces several body-care items that I would otherwise have pack on top of lube.

Sliquid Soul

You can use Sliquid Soul as a vaginal moisturizer as well. For those of you who suffer from vaginal dryness or reduced lubrication (for various reasons, say, drug side-effects, chemotherapy, or menopause), Soul is an excellent natural and organic option that contains nothing artificial or harmful for your body.

But you probably want to know how it performs as a sexual lubricant. Pretty spectacularly, I would have to admit. The closest I can compare Soul to is a high-quality silicone-based lube. It has the high viscosity, it’s super slippery, long-lasting, runny and liquidy. With the only difference that it’s entirely natural and it’s safe to use with all sex toys (except porous ones, which you shouldn’t be using in the first place). As you know some silicone toys are not compatible with some silicone-based libricants, and since there isn’t anything that can help you know for sure if a particular silicone lube will ruin your silicone sex toy, we always advice to avoid using these together.

Sliquid Soul ReviewSince Sliquid Soul is natural and organic it’s safe for oral sex and there isn’t anything harmful you can accidentally swallow. It does feel oily, but as long as that’s not unpleasant to you, you can go ahead and use it for oral sex (it actually moisturizes your lips and keeps them soft). It’s a really good lube for hand jobs and intimate massage. It doesn’t dry out so it’s great to use with sex toys or for intercourse. But where it really shines is anal play, whether it’s silicone butt plugs or anal sex, Soul will give you the longevity that you’re looking for from a lube when it comes to butt stuff. Since the rectum is not self-lubricating, you will need a lot of lube for anal sex. While the colon can absorb water and make water-based lube dry out after a while, an oil-based lube will last much longer and is a much better choice if you were to wear a putt plug for several hours, or have anal intercourse.

Not latex compatible

The only thing to always keep in mind is that oils degrade latex barriers and are not safe to use with most condoms or gloves. When it comes to external condoms, you can safely use Trojan Supra. Avoid latex-free condoms such as SKYN and Durex Avanti because they’re are made from Polyisoprene which still gets damaged by oil-based lubricants. And there’s, of course, the FC2 condom, which is made by nitrile and is oil-compatible as well.

Things to consider

The only thing to keep in mind is that, as with all oils, it might stain some clothes and sheets. It’s also a bit more runny than most lubes. It’s not as liquid as massage oil, but it’s more runny than Sliquid H2O. If you prefer thick gel-like lubes, you should consider Sliquid Organics Gel.
For now Soul only comes in the adorable carry-on luggage size of 2 oz. It sells for $12 at the lovely body-safe online store Peepshowtoys, but you can get it 10% off with my coupon code. It’s a long-lasting lubricant and moisturizer and despite its price tag, it’s going to last you a while.

The Butters Lubricant Review

dscn9866

Diving deeper and deeper into the world of lube. Or more like slipping into the world of lube.

Wanna join me? Enter my Safer and Wetter Giveaway!

If we were to rank the types of lube by popularity and visibility, I would say oil-based lubes are the most overlooked and underappreciated ones. There are literally hundreds of choices of water-based lubricants (probably 90 to 95% of which contain glycerin and propylene glycol: Momma no!!!), there are silicone-based ones, which are pretty damn expensive and can ruin your silicone sex toys, there are hybrids (water and silicone or water and oils) and all the way at the back of the line are oil-based lubes. Or are they? Just because we don’t see them (much) in the drug store or sex shops, that doesn’t mean that people don’t use oils as lubricants. I am pretty sure that a large number of people have their coconut or olive oil in their bedroom, not in the kitchen pantry. And there’s nothing wrong with that, except that these products are not made for sex, and they’re not entirely well balanced for your optimal intimate health.

When the established sex blogger behind LTASex reached out to me with his new creation, The Butters, I was thrilled to get to try it out and review it. Why did a sex blogger need to start making their own lube, one might ask. Aren’t there enough options already? If you are looking for a product that is: healthy, all-natural, long-lasting, extra slippery, safe for all kinds of sex and toys, and is cheap, you are up for a failure. There wasn’t a single product that met all of these requirements. Water-based lubes will eventually dry out and you will need a ton of reapplication, silicone lubes are not compatible with silicone toys, and the few oil-based lubes out there are very expensive.

A 4 oz jar of the Butters sells for… $5.00. Need I say more? 

Of course I will say more, because I am a sex geek and some of you need all the information there is before committing to putting something new down there.

The Formula

The butters is really creamy and silky. I am just crazy about how well-balanced and well-made it is. It’s not too liquidy, it’s not too hard, nor solid and definitely is not oily. It has aloe vera gel, not just a mixture of oils, which makes it more cream-like vs oil-like. It’s super moisturizing, blends right in, yet, it is so long lasting and gives you such a continuous glide. No tackiness and stickiness. And once it touches your skin, it will start melting a bit from the warmth of your body (you know how coconut and shea butters can be solid, but once in contact with your skin, they liquefy).

At Use

The Butters is good for any type of partnered or solo sex, really. It’s so delicious and slippery for hand-jobs, fingering, jerking off and all sorts of delightful hand sex or massages. Extra perk: it makes one’s body parts look so sexy. There are few things sexier than a greasy, oily, shiny penis. Or breasts. Or ass. Or legs. I challenge you to think of anything that beats that. Hey, hey! Don’t get too distracted there. Or if you already did, come back and read the rest of the review, after you’re done (wink).

This lube just perfect for anal sex. So perfect. So long-lasting. So goooood. And all of the ingredients actually help with skin elasticity. It’s awesome for your silicone butt plugs too. I can’t emphasize this enough, because silicone toys can only be used with hybrid, water or oil-based lube, out of which only the oil-based one gives sufficient slipperiness. The rectum absorbs water and a water-based lube isn’t gonna get you anywhere, if you are planning on wearing a plug for extended periods of time.

The Butters Oil-based LubeIt’s entirely healthy and body safe for vaginal intercourse too. It actually helps you fight off yeast infections (all the fatty acids from the oils are really healthy for your puss or cock). There are myths that oil-based lubes are really bad for the vagina, that they coat its walls, harbor bacteria and don’t let the vagina self-clean and perform its balancing functions. That’s all true for lubes with petroleum oil and petrochemicals. It does not apply for organic natural oils.

And lastly, it’s edible and completely safe for oral sex, too. It doesn’t have any taste, just a slight… hemp oil smell, barely noticeable. One extra benefit: your lips will get extra moisturized.

Caution

Don’t double dip. No dick-hand in the jar. If you’ve touched an intimate body-part, don’t go reaching into the jar again. You can solve this with keeping a small spoon, a wooden disposable stir, or one of these cosmetic spatulas you can find at Sephora (you can grab a few for free, they have them with all the swabs and little brushes that you’re supposed to test products with).

Applications

Don’t you just love multipurpose products? I know I do. The Butters is just a miracle in a jar for your skin and hair. Some of its uses and applications (quoted from its official website): Hair & Skin Conditioner, Ashiness Eraser, Personal Lubricant, Massage Lotion, Face Cleanser, Makeup Remover, Wood & Leather Cleaner/Conditioner, Hot Oil Treatment, Shaving Lubricant, Beard Conditioner, Skin Protector, Tattoo Aftercare. I’ve tried it for almost everything in this list and it’s fabulous. I can add: cuticle oil, split ends hair treatment, and a lip balm to the list too. But just honestly: for anything on your body that is dry and dehydrated.

Ingredients

The Butters is vegan and cruelty free, pH balanced and hypoallergenic. It contains a whole lot of natural goodness, such as aloe and six of the most beneficial plant butters. Complete list of ingredients: pure organic aloe vera fillet gel, raw grade a golden ghanaian shea butter, pure coconut oil, pure extra virgin olive oil, pure grapeseed oil, pure palm kernel oil, pure soy lipid emulsion, apple cider vinegar, arrowroot gel. You can find a really detailed explanation of the health benefits of each of the ingredients on The Butters website.

The Butters and Condoms

This one is really important: oils ARE NOT compatible with latex products! They destroy it. Which means that you should not use it with latex safer sex supplies and barriers. Luckily Trojan Supra is a good option with oils. Avoid latex-free condoms such as SKYN and Durex Avanti because they’re are made from Polyisoprene which still gets damaged by oil-based lubricants. And there’s, of course, the FC2 condom, which is an internal condom and is just aaawesome! You can’t use The Butters with dental dams, because they’re all latex, but you can cut a non-latex condom and turn it into a dental dam. There are also a ton of latex-free gloves, so you are all covered.

And clearly the lube is great for fluid-bonded sex: that’s not using barriers with a partner that’s either monogamous with you or goes bareback only with you and uses protection with other partners. If you want to go condom-less, you will both need to know your STI status. Luckily that’s something that you can do from the comfort of your own home.

Where to get it?

You can get if straight from the manufacturer. As I said, The Butters is a small independent business, run by one man. If you want to support entrepreneurship and if you passionately hate corporate America (or simply despise Astroglide and KY as much as I do), or if you just wanna buy CHEAP long-lasting lube, The Butters is your answer. It starts from $3 for a 2 oz, $5 for 4 oz jar and $10 for an 8 oz one. Shipping is just $5 and it’s free on orders over $30.

Safer and Wetter Giveaway

Wetlandia's first giveawayWetlandia is hosting its first giveaway! Who doesn’t love swag, right?

The Winner of Wetlandia’s Safer and Wetter Giveaway is Maya D.

As you probably already know I think using lube during solo or partnered sex is one of the most important tips I give my readers and my clients. I couldn’t emphasize enough how much good lube does for pleasure, sensations and pain-free encounters. But using a lubricant isn’t just for enjoyment: it actually makes sex safer because it reduces the risk of condom breakage by several times, decreases the chance of membrane rupture and micro cuts and tears, which makes the mucous membrane of the vagina or the penis much more susceptible to STIs. Why expose yourself at greater risk, when you can just add a little lube?

This is why Wetlandia.com is giving away a curated “Safer and Wetter” box which features: The Butters oil-based lube (2 oz), a pack of FC2 condoms, Uberlube silicone-based lube (1.7 oz) + Uberlube pillows, a pack of One condoms, a pack of Lelo Hex condoms, and a Pocket Rocket vibrator (no battery included).

First things first: you can use oil based lube with non-latex condoms such as the FC2 condom. Condoms made of latex are safe to use with silicone-based lube, such as Uberlube or any water-based lube.

A little bit about the prizes: The Butters is an oil-based lube that features a blend aloe vera and of 6 oils that a proven to be extremely healthy for yous skin, and for intimate health. It’s a one-man operation, aiming to fill the gap between quality natural lubes and affordable prices. Pair it up with the FC2 or another non-latex barrier protection. Read my full review of Butters here.

Uberlube is simply the best silicone-based lube ever created. It’s non-sticky, non-tacky, and it is water-proof. And like the Butters, it can also be used as skin or hair moisturizer. You can use it with any condom, but you should steer clear of silicone toys.

Wetlandia's Safer and Wetter Giveaway

A Pocket Rocket Vibe is something everyone should have in their bag of tricks. They’re small, affordable, easy to carry in one’s purse or pocket, and they provide a much more pinpoint stimulation, than bullet vibes, which vibrate with their whole shaft. You can easily handhold a pocket rocket, and it wouldn’t make your hand go numb. I would say they’re the best first toy anyone can have (they feel great on balls and on the scrotum, so they’re not just for clits). And it’s made of plastic, so it’s both body-safe and safe to use with any type of lubricant, even silicone ones.

Both lubes were generously provided by the brands, and I am throwing the rest in. Because… moooore swaaaag! The giveaway will be active for 2 weeks. Wish all of you good luck! Have safer and wetter sex!
