Tasty. Juicy. Wet.
Sliquid Swirl is a lightly flavored water-based personal lubricant formulated to emulate your body's own natural lubrication. The Sliquid Swirl formula is based on their Naturals H2O using plant cellulose as a thickening agent, instead of glycerin or other sugar derivatives. Flavors are subtle, and are intended to enhance your taste not disguise. Sliquid products never contain any parabens, and are 100% vegan.
Another important fact: Sliquid products will never cause yeast infections or UTI's.

One of my biggest issues with the other lube I've tried is how tacky it can get when using hands. While this one still did that a bit, something I am growing to understand is common with water-based lubes, the Sliquid lube was much better about staying slippery--especially when compared to Intimate Earth! It felt like water when poured out of the packet (yes, poured and not really squeezed), and while it did dry up eventually it took time and didn't feel overly tacky. Win!
Cleanup was also a breeze- it easily licked right off of my hand, and any remaining bits can be cleaned easily with water.
The big thing that was somewhat of a letdown was the taste. I am a lover of all things green apple, and this had an amazing smell that unfortunately I don't feel like it quite delivered on. It smelled nice and tart with a hint of underlying sweetness, but my taste experience with this was exactly the opposite- just a hint of that tart apple goodness, but mostly just sweet. It is sweetened with aspartame, which may be why I was picking up on more sweetness than I like in an apple flavor. If I'd picked another, maybe that aspartame-super-sweetness would be a feature and not a bug! (Aspartame naysayers have yet to convince me that it's pure awful and destined to harm me, but it sure is sweet.)
Overall, this performed very well as a lube, and I still hold high hopes for the other flavors it comes in, but this particular one was just a bit of a miss for me. That's entirely subjective, though; people who like a sweeter apple flavor might well love this one.
