Right out the door, I love the style of bottle the 3.4 fl. oz Pjur Woman Aqua comes in. I wish more lube came with this type of applicator. It reminds me a little bit of Elmer’s glue (except there’s no point on the tip) or maybe of a Bingo dobber. I’ve never seen that type of applicator before, but it can almost be applied hands-free, which is awesome if you hate getting lube all over your hands.
I would, however, suggest opening it pre-coitus. The lid is twisty. I did not think it was, and while trying to open it with a hand already covered in, uh, moisture, things got silly pretty quickly.
I was prepared to not like the feeling of this lube either. If given the choice between water or silicone based lubes, you know I will always pick silicone. But for a water-based lube, this stuff wasn’t half so bad. Best of all? It’s condom and toy safe, no matter what your toy is made of.
This lube goes on like water, and it stays like that the entire time. But where normal water would dry up or dry out your skin, it doesn’t get tacky when it dies. It stays silky smooth, much like a silicone-based lube like another Pjur favorite, Light Bodyglide.
With no flavor or fragrance, you know this lube isn’t just going to feel nice on your skin– it truly is made for women because it won’t irritate the mucous membranes of the vagina. However, since it is water-based, we don’t recommend it for use for anal. Check out these lubes instead.
However, there is one thing to note about those ingredients: if you’ve had trouble with glycerin in the past, this is NOT the lube for you. Not only does this lube have glycerin, but it also have propylyne glycol, which we talked about in a previous review being a just-as-bad substitute for glycerin. These two ingredients probably help make this lube so soft and silky, but if you’re prone to yeast infections or if you’ve had allergic reactions to water-based lubes before, choose something else.
If you’re looking for a great water-based lube that won’t be too intrusive, give Pjur’s Woman Aqua a shot. If you’re not adverse to glycerin, it could leave you soaking.
