During sex, wetness is where it’s at. Unfortunately, some body parts can’t create their own moisture and even the body parts that can don’t always produce enough. The invention of personal lubrication was a Godsend to mankind, so it’s probably a good idea to take advantage. Among the water-based, oil-based and silicone-based varieties available on today’s market, it seems as though silicone lubricants are favored by certain people for very specific reasons. I just so happen to be one of them, with a special place in my heart for these long-lasting, stain-free products. In other words, I’m always on the lookout for something in this category because, let’s face it, I have a lot of sex.
Most of my friends and family know that about me too, which is why they commonly suggest sex toys, accessories and lubricants to me in casual conversation. It’s actually quite nice because I get to be open about who I am as a person, but then again it’s a pain in the ass because it seems like everyone has an opinion about what I should be using. Someone I respect very much told me about Überlube and it sounded like some legit stuff so I gave it try. Was my experience as amazing as my buddy hyped it up to be or have I stopped listening to that guy’s suggestions all together? Well, let me start out by defining the subject matter first so we’re all on the same page.
What Is Überlube?
Table of Contents
Überlube is a silicone-based personal lubrication product that’s made by a team of experts who know exactly what it takes to create a luxury-grade personal pleasure product. It’s designed to provide a silky-smooth sensation while being longer-lasting than most water-based varieties. It’s fortified with skin-nourishing vitamins and is safe to use for all skin types. As a lube that can double as a skin protectant and moisturizer, this stuff is compatible with rubber latex sex toys and polyisoprene condoms. It’s made to be taste free and fragrance-free as well, meaning it won’t overwhelm the senses when in use. The liquid magic is contained within a ergonomic pump-style bottle that looks like some chic perfume, plus the proprietary ingredients are safely digestible in case you want to try a little oral. In fact, the product’s inventor, a man by the name of Stephen, reportedly drank a shot glass full of it and lived to tell the story.
The Main Features
The product known as Überlube features a proprietary blend of ingredients that work together to create a silky-smooth finish even as the lube begins to dry. It’s offered up inside a 3.38 ounce (240ml) glass bottle that features a convenient push-pump on the top. The pump has a wide-angle sprayer nozzle for better product placement and coverage, plus it comes pre-packaged in a mailing tube and is considered a luxury-grade product because of it. Designed to transfer sensations while significantly reducing friction, the big Ü features a unique formula that starts to dissipate into the skin once it stop being manipulated. This means that it’s made to never be sticky no matter how long you leave it on without washing.
What Comes in the Box?
Most personal lubricants don’t come with anything but the product itself, and that’s to be expected considering the fact that lubes are stand-alone products used as an accessory during already amazing sexual activities such as masturbation and intercourse. They don’t really need much else besides a good liquid inside a well-made bottle, and that’s exactly what Überlube is. You can tell right away that it’s not your ordinary container of lubricant, plus it comes packaged in a nice, attractively decorated box (if you buy it from the right supplier). So, while you won’t get any free product samples, toy cleaning supplies or even a coupon from the manufacturer, you do get one of the industry’s best silicone-based moisturizing products and you really can’t put a price on that.
Every time I try a new product, whether that be a sex toy, a performance enhancer, an accessory or a personal lubricant, I always try to remain objective about my points of view and expectations. I understand that these products are not all made the same, and I know that people are inherently different too. However, it helps to use the same basic criteria when judging specialty lubes because the race needs to be kept fair for all manufacturers and brands. With that said, here are the nitty gritty details of my experience with Überlube. Use the following information to judge this product’s quality and value for yourself:
- The Container
It comes in a very sexy, sleek and sophisticated bottle which, in my opinion, looks nothing like your regular bottle of lube. I think it resembles a bottle of cologne or perfume to be honest, plus the lube itself is 100% clear so onlookers just assume its an innocuous liquid inside. Furthermore, the wide-angle pump on the top made product conservation much easier and it gave a nice, even spread on the skin when it got sprayed. I thought it was a good size too – a little over 3 ounces if my memory serves me correctly. So, while it’s a sort of expensive option by comparison, you do get a lot of liquid of your bread, which means it may be a worthy purchase even if you don’t use silicone lubes all the time.
- The Ingredients
Here are the four main ingredients in Überlube: dimethicone, dimethiconol, cyclomethicone, tocopheryl acetate (or vitamin E). And while some of those ingredients have relatively long names that are difficult to pronounce, rest assured that none of them can cause an allergic reaction or skin rash because they’re hypoallergenic. The addition of vitamin E was a good touch if you ask me (and you did), because moisturization is extremely important after the genitals go through a heated session of fervent masturbation and/or intercourse. So although this product wouldn’t fare so well on my silicone-based sex toys, it was a terrific alternative to the water-based lubes I typically use with my latex devices.
- The Sensations
There’s nothing like a smooth ride to the finish and that’s what Überlube provided for me and my partner. We favor silicone lubes because they last for a lot longer and don’t stain fabrics, plus they’re gentle on the skin and generally edible. This stuff did not disappoint one bit, I’m not even kidding. The sensations were absolutely the best part of the entire experience, and I loved how the substance absorbed into my skin leaving it supple and moisturized afterwards. I promise you that my genitals have never looked or felt more revitalized after a long pounding session in all my life.
- The Scent
Considering the fact that Überlube is made to be fragrance-free, I really didn’t notice a smell or odor coming from the bottle or the body part I sprayed it on. I found that rather relieving, especially since I spent so much time setting the scene with candles and incense. I would have hated to use a scented or flavored lube in this situation because it would have totally ruined my efforts and made my romantic gestures obsolete. And since my sex toys already had a funky smell of their own, this product was also used to eliminate some of the odor wafting off my brand new dildo collection.
The Ups and Downs
There is no such thing as the perfect pleasure product, and personal lubricants are no exception. While being objective about your experience like I was, it’s also important to consider the realities of this industry. Because people are so different, a flawless lube could never exist. The point is to find something that works well with your intended purposes, skin type(s) and budget. As for Überlube, here are all the things I think you should know about it before spending any money:
- Absorbs into the skin as a moisturizer
- Long-lasting formula
- Uses a wide-angle spray nozzle for improved control and conservation
- Comes in a stylishly discreet bottle
- Made from skin-safe ingredients
- Does not get sticky or tacky when dry
- May be too expensive for users who don’t use silicone-based lubes often
- Not compatible with silicone sex toys
High prices aren’t always indicative of high quality, but sometimes you truly do get what you pay for. When it comes to the silicone-based personal lubricant known as Überlube, the cost is relatively commiserate with the contents in more ways than one. For starters, it’s a luxurious product that seeps deep down into the skin to moisturize your worn-out genitals as it dries. It’s contained within a sleek, modern bottle and it’s safe to use on all skin types too because it contains absolutely zero allergens. So while you can’t use it (or any other silicone lube for that matter) on your silicone sex toys and accessories, you can use it for things like latex play and anal stimulation without having to worry about rashes or reactions.
