I recently received a review package from Orion containing the Javida Heating Vibe and I was surprised to find two 20ml tubes of the Just Glide Water Based Lubricant alongside it. I have reviewed a few Orion lubricants before, namely the Just Glide Womanizer, Just Glide Silicone and the O-Glide Toygel. I really liked both of the Just Glide Lubricants that I tried previously, so I was quite excited to see how the water based version would hold up. Did it impress me or was I left feeling disappointed? Read on to find out or jump to the quick review for the facts.
It follows the same presentation as the previous products I mentioned, just a clear tube with the product name on the front and directions for use and a list of ingredients on the back. It features a hygiene seal for added confidence that it hasn’t been tampered with, which I’m always happy to discover. I feel that the presentation of this product is discreet and it could easily be left out on a dresser without catching the attention of wandering eyes.
Before I use a new lubricant or essential I always carry out a patch test on my partner and I beforehand. We both suffer with sensitive skin, me more than him, and I’m prone to UTi’s so I need to avoid lubricants that contain Glycerin. I’m pleased to state that the Just Glide Water Based Lubricant doesn’t contain any, nor does it have Parabens or Propylene Glycol. I was reassured by this as this made the chances of a reaction significantly lower and as it turned out, no reaction occurred whatsoever. I’d be happy to recommend this to people who need to avoid all of the above ingredients, as well as wanting to use a product that’s compatible with condoms and friendly for vegans.
I was incredibly surprised by this lube. I was expecting it to be just another average product with no stand out qualities, but I was so wrong. When I squeezed a small amount out of the tube for the first time and rubbed it between my fingers I was amazed. It’s a water based lubricant with the slickness of the silicone equivalent. It certainly lives up to name of ‘Just Glide’ as that’s exactly what it does. It seems to be effortless and carefree as it moves across the skin and removes any friction or discomfort that may occur.
In my opinion, it has the balance perfectly struck between thick and thin. I’d class this as a thicker water based lubricant, although it’s not the thickest I’ve ever used. It’s not quite thick enough for anal use, but for masturbation or vaginal sex it’s perfect. It doesn’t have a sticky texture at all and it leaves the skin feeling as soft as a babies. I was really pleased with the consistency, thickness and the lack of odour, so I’d say that the Just Glide Water Based lubricant is a great all-rounder. I would definitely use this one again.
