As a sex toy reviewer who could do with a never-ending supply of lubricant I hardly ever turn down the opportunity to get my hands on something new. I had not heard of Migliori until the chance arose to try their Premium Silicone Personal Lubricant, so I did a bit of research prior to it arriving for review. The backstory is that three guys were discussing chafing after a marathon and one mentioned using lubricant to reduce it. One of the guys happened to own a medical laboratory and suggested that they make a lubricant of their own containing premium ingredients and vitamins. Eighteen months later, Migliori was born.
When I saw the presentation of the bottle, I was aware that I was in for a luxurious experience. Before I can even get to that though, it’s worth noting that it comes inside a branded velvet pouch for extra protection, which I thought was a great touch. The bottle itself is clear glass with a metallic lid. The ingredients are listed on the back (and in the quick review for reference). It’s sleek, elegant and classy so I’d have no qualms about leaving it on the dresser.
Upon removing the cap, I found that the pump dispenser was shrink-wrapped for assurance it hadn’t been tampered with. The pump mechanism was stiff at first, but now works effortlessly. When I first got a pump or two of the lubricant into my hand I was surprised. I was expecting a thin consistency, similar to Uberlube, but it was the opposite. It’s rather thick, not at all runny and stays in position where it has been placed. I feel that Migliori has the perfect texture for my partner and I as our preferences are for thicker lubes.
Migliori mention on their website that this lubricant is non-staining and whilst this has been my experience so far, I would still advise caution when using it. It should not be used with other silicone based products, such as your favourite Tantus dong as the silicone in one could react to the other. You could try doing a patch test on the base to see whether they are compatible, but I’d rather recommend a water based lubricant or a hybrid for use with silicone sex toys. Be aware of your clothing, surfaces and bed sheets when using Migliori, as some silicone lubes cause staining. I recommend putting down a waterproof sheet or old towel just in case. Like I said, I’ve had no issues but I can’t rule out that this will never happen.
The website also claims that the product is tasteless and odourless. I personally can’t vouch for taste as my partner and I don’t tend to use silicone lubes if oral sex is involved in the session, or we add it in later. He did give it a quick try for the purposes of this review and he said whilst there is no particular taste, the consistency is not great on the tongue and he’d recommend avoiding mouth to lube contact.
What I can vouch for is the lack of odour. I couldn’t smell anything after pumping the product into my hands or during/after use. A few other silicone lubricants I’ve tried, including Uberlube, claim to be scent-free but have a faint hospital smell. This one is genuinely odourless.
During vaginal use, I only needed one pump of product. I felt perfectly comfortable with such a small amount which is strange as I’d need six or seven times as much water-based lubricant to reach that comfort point. I had no reactions to Migliori’s Silicone Lubricant whatsoever, but some people might. It does not state whether the Vitamin E included is tocopherol or tocotrienol and some people can have issues with tocopherol. I’d love it if Migliori could clarify this on their website and packaging so people with known issues with this ingredient could make an educated decision before splashing out, as this isn’t the cheapest lube on the market.
Not only did I enjoy it during vaginal play, I thought it was excellent for anal use too. I love using silicone lubricants for metal and glass plugs/dildos and anal sex and this one ticked my boxes. I found Uberlube to be too thin for me to use for backdoor play, but the added layers of protection from Migliori are exactly what I need. It can also be used in the shower or bath for slippery yet comfortable aquatic fun. Silicone doesn’t wash away with water, so it’s not constantly being rinsed off underneath the running water of a shower. This makes it the obvious choice for water play. It is harder to get off than water-based lubes and some of its silicone competitors, but I think this is because the skin absorbs it so well. A thorough soapy scrub is needed to remove traces of this lube from the body or a sex toy.
