The Best of SKYN: Now Ultrathin.
SKYN Elite is the newest condom from Lifestyles popular SKYN line to hit the market. 10% thinner than other polyisoprene condoms, expect more sensitivity than ever before. Polyisoprene – a scientifically formulated non-latex material that provides a softer, more natural feel than latex (combining the strength of latex with the sensitivity of a much thinner condom). While they are ideal for people with latex allergies or latex sensitivity, many couples prefer them to latex condoms altogether. Lifestyles (aka Manix in Europe and Ansell in Australia) are produced to the highest global standards.
Try one today. You won't regret it.

I tried and reviewed other condoms before this one. I liked some and really liked others, but when I saw this one, my prejudice towards Lifesyles got the best of me and made me expect a poor quality from the condom... Boy am was I glad I was wrong! I believe that I tried this condom in the past, but don't remember it sticking out this much! There wasn't a noticeable smell coming from the condom once I opened it and I had no problem putting it on. I have tried tighter fitting condoms that still moved around and standard fits that did the same (though not all did), but this one stayed on like a champ! It measures at 53mm and fit like a glove. I put the condom on earlier than usual, but never had an issue with the lube drying out or the condom becoming uncomfortable. Finally, the feel was amazing! My wife didn't even notice it was on and frankly, it gave me just the perfect amount of feel/don't feel. Some guys might like a thinner condom that transfers all the sensation, but I personally like it to give most (not all) when it has been a few days. Overall, this condom preformed perfectly for my needs and size and I would defiantly try/buy again!
We've been trying different ultra thin condoms and this one was fine (I'm not sure if this is considered thin or not, but my husband certainly didn't consider it to be), but we won't be buying them again by any means. It does the job a condom was made to do, but there isn't anything special about it as far as we could tell.
Personally, I really liked this condom. I thought that for me, it was like not using one and could actually feel him. I thought that it was also well lubricated and did not have any smell, which I thought was great.
The fit on my partner was great, and he was very pleasantly surprised with how much he could feel. He seemed to thoroughly enjoy the entire thing, however, I did give this 5 stars because he still prefers the One Zero Thin condoms. I think for him, they were still too thick and while the heat transfer was great, he preferred the band circumference on those.
As I try more and more condoms, I think it is important to note on the condom wrapper itself. The wrapper opened quite easily with the corner still staying on so that we didn't loose it making cleanup rather easy. The foil seemed sturdy, but I don't think I would throw it in my purse before a night out without putting it in a protective container first.
I would definitely buy this condom again if I want to change some things up, but I don't think it will be my new go-to condom. I think I still prefer the FC2 for non-latex options but if you are allergic to latex, I think this would be well worth a try!
For the SKYN (and Crown Skinless as well) users who are under 4.75 inches in girth and want increased sensitivity and greater heat transfer, they won't be disappointed with this one. However, for those like me who are 4.75 inches and over, they should stick with the original SKYN Large.
Smoother, closer, and more peace of mind with no slipping for her.
