Light, Natural, Moisturizing, and Great To Use

While I’ve found several lubricants that I enjoy and that work well, I love to try new ones to see if I’ll have a new favorite, or at least another option for an acceptable one. As natural as possible is always good, so I was happy to receive Blossom Organics Natural Moisturizing Lubricant from Good Vibrations to take for a test drive.

Blossom Organics comes in a purple and white cardboard box, along with a large card with more information on the product. The box also has this information. Inside the box is the tube of lubricant.

The 4 ounce tube is also purple and white, and cleanly designed. It looks like a tube of regular moisturizing lotion or hair care product. It’s suitable to keep in the medicine cabinet or out on the dresser – the logo is larger and towards the top of the tube, while the lubricant wording is smaller and farther down the tube.

I like this style of tube (although I admit I prefer pump tops), where the cap is actually on the bottom. This makes it easy to dispense when the product is running out, without having to squeeze or mangle the bottle to get the product out. The flip cap is easy to open and close.

This lubricant has no scent, and is also flavorless: two good properties. It’s pH balanced to mimic the natural chemistry of a woman, and it has no parabens, silicones, glycerin, petrochemicals, hormones, artificial dyes, flavorings, or fragrances. It’s also non-irritating (although if you experience any discomfort or irritation you should discontinue use) and latex friendly (so it’s safe to use with condoms).

The ingredients are: Organic aloe barbadensis leaf extract, sorbitol, hydroxyethylcellulose, hyaluronic acid, organic stevia rebaudiana extract, tocopherol (vitamin E), sodium citrate, potassium sorbate, organic extracts of paeonia albiflora (peony) root, passiflora incarnate flower.

I found it interesting that stevia was an ingredient – it seems that the sweetener I use in my coffee is showing up all over the place! I think this was probably added to make the taste this lube might have disappear.

While the packaging states that this is a water-based lubricant, water itself isn’t listed as one of the ingredients which I also found interesting.

The lube itself is thicker than a liquid, but runnier than a true gel. If you place a pea-sized drop on your finger it will slowly run down, but stays in place reasonably well. It’s not greasy or tacky and just has a wet feel. It stays wet a long time without getting really sticky, and it’s easy to clean up.

So, Did It Work? I liked this lube for vaginal use, whether with toys or with my partner. It added lubrication nicely, and I didn’t have to reapply it during a session. I liked that it didn’t have any scent, and also that it had no taste. I didn’t care for it for anal use, as I thought it was a bit too thin and didn’t seem to work as well as other lubes I have (that are thicker).

I like the flip top, and the fact that the cap is on the bottom. The only thing I didn’t care for is when you dispense it some of the lube ends up around the hole making it a bit messy, and I feel like I’m wasting some when it ends up being wiped off the cap.

Overall, I found this a good lubricant for vaginal use, and would recommend it.

How Clean is Your Lube?

I’m pretty particular when it comes to lubricants. I used to use a lot of flavored ones until I found I had an allergy. Now I look for ones that are unflavored or have no taste, and steer clear of the multitude that have aspartame, which is, surprisingly, a common ingredient in many lubricants. I prefer my lubes water-based, as the majority of my toys are silicone. A long lasting lubricant is also a plus. While I do have my favorites, I’m always up to trying something new that meets those specifications, so I was happy to try Good Clean Love from Good Vibrations and see how it measured up.

Good Clean Love comes in a 4 ounce flip-top container. I love the design – the cap is on the bottom of the tube, so there’s never a need to flip it over and wait for the lube to pour down or have to shake it to get it to dispense. As the amount in the tube gets less, it’s easy to squeeze it out.

The tube is white and lime green (lighter than these pictures), with white lettering on the front and black text on the back. It’s fairly discreet, and has a nice fresh look.

This lubricant comes in two varieties: Almost Naked and Lavender Rose. I’m not partial to lavender so I chose to try Almost Naked. It’s not unscented, but the scent is very light and slightly citrusy. It’s virtually taste-free, but it does have a slight citrus note that’s clean and not unpleasant.

Good Clean Love is made by Good Clean Love, Inc. They are a member of the Organic Trade Association, and this lube contains 95% organic ingredients. It has no petrochemicals or parabens and is 100% vegan. Since it’s water based, it’s safe for use with latex and toys. Good Clean Love contains deionized water, xanthan gum, agar, organic aloe barbendensis leaf juice, natural extractives of lemon and vanilla bean, potassium sorbate, and benzoic acid.

Unlike a lot of lubricants I’ve used, Good Clean Love is thick like a gel. When dispensed onto your finger, it doesn’t run or drip. It isn’t greasy or sticky even when it dries out and doesn’t stain. It lasts a fairly long time and can be reactivated with a little bit of water or saliva.

So, Did It Work?  I liked this lubricant.  I found it great for vaginal sex, regardless of whether my partner or a toy was penetrating me. A dollop was plenty to get my toys or my partner slick.

I loved how it was thick coming out of the bottle, yet not clumpy or thick when applied.   Even though Almost Naked had a slight scent and taste, it was fresh and not very noticeable at all.

Almost Naked wasn’t bad for anal sex.  While it’s not as thick or long lasting as some of the anal lubes I use, it kept things pretty slippery.  We had to reapply it more during anal sex than vaginal, though, and this will be a lube we use more for vaginal penetration than anything else.

Make Your Kitty Slippery!

When I opted to get the Hello, Kitty! vibrator, I felt that it would be fun to get a new lube to go with it. I needed one that was water-based so I could use it with all of my other toys, as well as one without aspartame (which seems to show up a lot in lubes, unfortunately). Slippery Kitty! made me laugh (what better to use on Hello, Kitty! than a lube for kitties?) so I had to try this one out from EdenFantasys.

Slippery Kitty! Au Naturel is made in the US by Tickle Kitty. It comes in a 2 oz bottle, which is a great size to try out the product. The bottle is clear and has an interesting picture on the front – a woman’s eyes above the name and a silhouette of a woman in a cat suit on her knees below. The bottle says it’s safe on condoms.

The bottle has a flip top and comes sealed underneath. This lubricant is clear, and has a light, somewhat fruity scent that isn’t strong or overpowering. It doesn’t really have a taste to it. It’s thin and a bit runny, with a light, wet texture. The lube isn’t sticky right away and just feels slick and slippery on your fingers or on a toy.

Slippery Kitty! doesn’t last a long time without reapplication – about 10 minutes or so. It gets a little tacky when it dries, but it’s not super sticky. It’s easy to clean up and doesn’t spill or flake. I managed to get a fair amount on our throe and sheets and it didn’t leave a stain or spot after laundering.

Slippery Kitty! is a water-based lubricant, and should be stored at room temperature. It contains water, aloe, barbadensis (aloe vera), leaf juice, glycerin, PET, carboxymethyl Hydroxyethylcellulose, sodium benzoate, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E acetate), propylene glycol, tetrasodium edta, dimethicone copolyol, methylparaben, imidizolidinyl urea, so if you’re allergic to any of these you’ll want to steer clear.

So, Does It Work? This isn’t a bad lubricant. It’s a bit thinner than I prefer, but it slicks things up nicely. I would have liked a pump top better than the flip top – it can get a bit messy down the bottle sides when you apply it. A bit longer lasting would have been good, but overall it made my toys slippery and easy to use. It worked fine on the Hello, Kitty! vibrator as well.

Where this lubricant didn’t work was anally. It was simply too thin and light to work well for anal toys and didn’t last nearly long enough before it dried.

I picked up Slippery Kitty! at EdenFantasys. If you’d like to see how slippery it gets your kitty, you can get yours at EdenFantasys by clicking the widget below.

The Good and The Bad

The Good: I won two contests – two awesome Tantus dildos and some lube from Miss Kiss This, and Maximus lube from Bucking Bill. Woot! I haven’t won anything in ages, and what’s better than winning toys and lube? Well, I suppose a Lambourghini, but this is a close second.

The Bad: I am going to be without the internet for the next two days.

I know, it’s only two days.

But I’m addicted. If you could put the internet in an IV and feed me intravenously, I’d be all for it. Kinda like coffee. Just put one in each arm and have someone change the bag every few hours.

I’m hoping I can get wireless access somewhere. I really can’t go for that long!
