I’m not typically a fan of flavored lubricant – I like girls that taste likes girl – but I do like the Sliquid line and after seeing the thoughtful ingredient list, I decided I’d give it a shot.
Since it was a big selling point, let me talk about the ingredients. Those of you who are try to avoid yeast infections will be glad to hear that Cherry Vanilla Swirl is both glycerin and sugar free. You also won’t find any controversial parabens or any animal products at all. That’s right, this lube is the perfect gift for your vegan friends! There are a lot of people cranking out lube with ingredients I do my best to avoid, so it’s nice to see Sliquid working hard to create safe products.
Another thing I liked about Swirl was that the flavor wasn’t overwhelming at all. It’s a nice subtle Cherry Vanilla (definitely more cherry) that doesn’t leave a bad aftertaste in your mouth. I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed the hint of sweetness and will probably try other flavors in the future.
Swirl is a water-based lube, which means it’s compatible with all of the silicone toys I love so dearly. Like every water-based lube I’ve ever used, you may need to reactivate it using a bit of water or saliva if it starts to get sticky over time. While this is a bit inconvenient, it’s not unusual. I admit that my experience with flavored lubes is limited, but, so far, this is the best I’ve used.
After considering the price and quality of this lube, I would be a fool to not recommend it for those of you who are looking to sweeten the deal when it comes to oral!
