Whether you’re a lady up for some solo play, you want to add some spice to your sex life with your partner, or you just need a little very personal moisturizer, we’ve taken the time to review some of the market’s most popular products to find the best lubricant for women to fit your needs. Not all lubricants are created equal, and not all lubes are right for all women—so reviews are a good place to start when you need to choose a new one!
Top Lubes For Women Reviewed
Luxxx Beauty Premium Intimate Lubricant
Luxxx has a lot going for it: it’s water based, which means that it’s completely safe for use with your toys, even those made out of silicone. You can also use it with latex condoms without worry. It’s paraben free, and composed of high-quality ingredients that are safe for even sensitive skin. It’s equally great as a lubricant for playtime and as an “anytime” moisturizer. Plus, like most water based lubes, it offers easy clean up.
Luxxx also has a great presentation—it’s in a beautiful bottle that reminds one more of a top of the line lotion rather than anything naughty (although it does say personal lubricant on the package). It has a convenient pump top that makes it ideal for one handed use and also helps to prevent spills and leakage.
Its soothing formula is thick and silky, and doesn’t get tacky. It doesn’t take much, either, so an 8 oz bottle should last for some time. There’s a reason that this is one of the best female lubricants, hands down.
Healthy Vibes Water Based Personal Lubricant
Healthy Vibes is another water based lubricant that offers the typical advantages that come with the style, including being safe for use with latex and silicone. Like Luxxx, it’s a long lasting, silky formula that’s paraben free and suitable for use on sensitive skin. If you like to ensure that your products are cruelty free, you’ll also be happy to hear that it’s not tested on animals.
The bottle leaves a bit to be desired—it’s your typical clear lubricant bottle and it’s quite obvious what its intended for. No hiding this one amongst your high end beauty products. However, it does have a useful pump, and has a notable lack of scent and only a slightly sweet taste that makes it ideal for certain activities. It’s also a great product for addressing personal dryness. Just a small amount can help replenish or supplement your natural moisture.
Healthy Vibes is a bit thinner than Luxxx; this is one of those traits that comes down to personal preference. While some prefer the less viscous lubricants, it’s almost guaranteed (at least when it comes to the water based varieties) that you’ll need a bit more to achieve the same effects, so do keep that in mind.
Pink Silicone Lube for Women
Don’t be put off by the name—the product itself is Crystal clear! Pink is a silicone lube which means it’s not safe for use with silicone toys, but silicone comes with other benefits, like a super slippery, almost velvety texture, an absolute lack of stickiness or tackiness, and the need to use only tiny amounts even for longer sessions. It can be used with latex condoms and non-silicone toys.
Pink has some unique advantages, as well. It doesn’t just feel good on your skin, it is good for your skin. It’s fortified with Vitamin E for skin health, and aloe vera for its soothing, moisturizing qualities. Its small (4 oz) glass bottle is the perfect discreet size for the nightstand drawer or even your purse, while the pump top complete with cover makes leakage and spillage a non-issue.
While silicone lubes can certainly seem to be a bit pricier per ounce, even a few drops last a very long time, and Pink is no exception. A 4 oz bottle is probably comparable to an 8 or 12 oz bottle of water based lubricant.
Organic Glide Personal Lubricant
Organic Glide personal lubricant is a unique oil based lubricant that also contains probiotics. It moisturizes as it lubricates and can also help to improve your personal health and well-being. For women who don’t care for the main ingredients in many water-based lubes or silicone lubes, but are looking for something that can perform just as well, Organic Glide is a great choice. Its main ingredients are organic olive fruit oil, vegetable oil, and Arabia kernel oil. It’s a very natural, safe way to moisturize, whether it’s just to fight dryness or for use with toys or partners.
Unlike most other lubes, Organic Glide has a creamy consistency, which is something many of its fans love. It’s not transparent, but once it’s applied to the skin, it “melts” and becomes clear. It’s completely non-toxic, and has very little scent or flavor.
Shibari Intimate Lubricant
Shibari is a well known and well-loved name when it comes to lubricants, and its water-based lubricant is quite popular. It’s known for its soft, silky feel. It’s on the thinner side for a water based formula, coming in at even a bit more watery than Healthy Vibes. However, even for being less viscous, it lasts longer than most water based lubes. It also doesn’t get gummy or sticky even after extended use. As a matter of fact, it tends to absorb well (after a time) much like a conventional moisturizer, which means that very little clean up is required. When it is necessary, a wet cloth is sufficient.
Shibari Intimate Lubricant is safe for use with toys—even silicone toys—and with latex condoms. It’s also non-staining and has no noticeable odour or flavour.
One con, however: it comes in a rigid flip top bottle, which makes one-handed use difficult, and spills all-too-common.
