Intimate/Organics – Hydra Lube
I have the absolute joy to be involved with PinkCherry.com and their Canadian sister site PinkCherry.ca and to try out a few things here and there and then to tell you all about it, cuz i’m totally sweet like that. w00t!
One such thing i was sent to try is Intimate/Organics – Hydra Glycerine-Free Water Based Lubricant.
First, a few words about Intimate Organics:
Fairly new on the market, Intimate Organics started just last year! Their mission is to provide safe and effective products in the most natural way! All their products are Paraben and Glycerin free and contain no DEA, Menthol or Aluminum Sulphate. They are 100% vegan and they NEVER test on animals! To find out more about Paraben, Glycerin, Diethanolamine (DEA), Menthol or Aluminum Sulphate – please visit their website for the scoop!
The quick version – drugs are bad, mkay?
OK, and now for the Lube!!
B-rad and i have had the occasion to test it out a few times since i got it from Pinkcherry, and it works just as a good lube should! It’s non-sticky, and doesn’t Gunk Up. It definately is not a silicone based lube, the kind that goes forever, but it does last pretty well. But, that’s not to say that a little bit of *moisture* (in whichever form you desire to add it -wink-) doesn’t get thing moving again lickety-split *pun intended.
My general preference in intimacy products is for non-flavoured/non-scented.
To say that this product is “Unscented” is true – inasmuch as there have been no scents added to it. But there is a ‘fresh’ scent which isn’t unpleasant, from the natural ingredients… like the Aloe. And as far as the lickety goes, it does have a little bit of a tang taste, but again i think that’s from the Aloe and it’s not gross — but it wasn’t necessarily tasty either. It’s a very natural taste. Like if you were to take a bite out of your aloe plant. Y’see where i’m going with this? yeah.
Because this product is ALL Natural, it does have a shelf life, but it’s still pretty great! My bottle expires 11/2011! So, i mean, if i haven’t had enough lovin’ to use up this bottle in two years, then there are other issues to be addressed than the shelf life of my personal lubricant.
All in all here’s my rating – totally made up on the spot:
Lubing like a good lube should – 4/5
Not Sticky or Gooey – 4/5
Longevity – 3.5/5
All Natural Ingredients – 5/5
Vegan – 5/5
No Animal Testing – 5/5
Unscented – 4.5/5
