One of our favorite brands in the adult industry is Sliquid. We’ve tried quite a few of their lubricants in the past two years and haven’t found one that we dislike so far. Based on all the positive experiences we’ve had we decided that we should try out some of their other products. I did try the Orgasm Gel before, but there were still a few categories left to explore. Massage lotions seemed like the obvious choice as we use these almost as much as we use lube and constantly run out. The Sliquid Serenity is a tad more expensive than our go-to oils, but it’s perfect for a special occasion or treat and being Sliquid, it’s absolutely worth the price tag. Read on to find out our thoughts or skip ahead to the quick review.
The bottle has simplistic labelling and a brown and gold colour scheme. It might not sound pleasant, but it actually looks good. I relate the brown packaging to the earthy/natural vibes that Sliquid have going on. The back of the bottle lists some key features, directions for use and a full ingredients list. I’m sure that plenty of you will be pleased to know that Serenity is cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and absent from Parabens. It’s not compatible with safe sex barriers, so please be sure to wash your hands before placing one on.
It dispenses via a flip top and pour lid, which is super convenient and prevents miss and spills. The product itself is quite runny and it’s easy to over pour, so be careful. Never has the saying ‘a little goes a long way’ been more accurate. I was disappointed initially and thought that I wasn’t going to enjoy this product, but in the end, I did. The reason for my concerns was the slight greasy texture upon first contact, which is something that I really do not like in any sort of essential product.
Once my partner had begun to massage the product into my skin and my skin started to absorb it, it began feeling great. It left me with soft, hydrated skin and I felt like I’d just walked out of a spa. I thought that a shower afterwards would be essential based on the initial few seconds of greasy texture, but once it had been rubbed in the texture had truly improved. I couldn’t even feel any residue once the massage had finished. The only evidence that a product had been used was the smooth moisturized skin that I hadn’t had before and a beautiful aroma.
It’s worth noting that my partner and I both have sensitive skin, so I did a patch test beforehand. I placed a small amount of product into the crease of each elbow and waited for thirty minutes or so. There were no reactions at all, so I feel that this should be suitable for most people. I had expected this to be the case as there’s no real irritants in Sliquid’s products but I always suggest a patch test first, just to be on the safe side.
The aroma that I mentioned earlier is divine. Have you ever walked into Lush and wanted to stay in there all day smelling the various bath bombs? That’s the way that I feel about the smell of serenity. I could happily use this every day and not get bored with the odour. It’s a musky vanilla fragrance that can be picked up on immediately after removing the safety seal. It’s not overpowering or headache-inducing, but it’s enough to linger on the skin and in the room for a few hours after use.
