Let me just start off by saying this: I would dribble this lube over strawberry shortcake. Or ice cream. Mmmm. Ice cream.
Seriously. Maybe this is just coming from a strawberry lover, but WET Naturals Sensual Strawberry tastes like heaven. You know I love WET’s other flavored lubes (most particularly their Fun Flavors) and you know I love the other two products in their Naturals Line (Beautifully Bare and Silky Supreme).
I sent this 3.3oz flip-top bottle around the office before sampling it in a more, ahem, appropriate environment. After some surprised noises of delight, we all agreed that it tasted exactly like the frosting on strawberry donuts from Dunkin Donuts.
Which just so happen to be my favorite kind of donut.
When it comes to flavored lube, I feel like most companies tend to overshoot it completely. They go more for the sweetness and not the natural taste of things. While this lube is super sweet, it tastes more like strawberries than fake, candy strawberries. Which is perfect for someone just trying out a flavored lube for the first time, or someone who’s a little bored with their other options.
Not only is the taste amazing, but the feel is gold star too. Now, this lube is water-based, which means it isn’t going to last as long as the Silky Supreme (which is silicone-based–read my review here). It’s lifespan is more comparable to Beautifully Bare, which is the WET Natural’s water-based product. But being water-based, that also makes it condom safe.
A lot of times, you run into a sticky situation when it comes to flavored lubes. Companies go for the tasty over the feel. Well, that doesn’t seem to be the case with WET Naturals Sensual Strawberry. It may be sweet, but it isn’t sticky. It stays slick, and it doesn’t even get tacky like other water-based lube.
And the best thing about this lube? It’s vagina-friendly. That’s right: if you or your partner have a vagina, this isn’t going to give you a yeast infection or provide any kind of irritation. The flavoring comes from the all natural ingredients. This is one of very few lubes on the market that is both vagina-friendly and flavored.
Now, it does have Vitamin E Acetate in it, which we’ve mentioned previously, some people have minor allergic reactions to it. So that may be a reason to stay away from it, but if you haven’t previously had any reactions to lube, you’re probably safe. Try a little out first on the inside of your elbow to see if it bothers you.
Also of note: this lube has sucralose in it. From my research, there doesn’t seem to be a link between this artificial sweetener and yeast infections (unlike glucose or other sugars), but again, if you’ve tried lubes with sucralose in them and had a reaction (like WET’s Gellee), you may want to stay away.
And as a final note on the topic, sucralose is an artificial sweetener– which means that it’s a good choice for diabetics. So if you’ve avoided flavored lubes due to health reasons before, this lube may make all of your oral dreams come true.
I love the taste, my partner loved the feel, and best of all, it gave no irritation. Can’t get much better than that. Now excuse me while I go find some vanilla ice cream.
