So, I’ve had yet another UTI, which is always fun when you’re a sex toy reviewer (and by ‘fun’ read: ‘a massive hindrance’). One day I will certainly be investing my time in to at least one article on UTIs but reviews are what I do best and a little stinging isn’t going to hold me back, especially when a product like this is at the top of my list.
Sensitive and UTI-prone as I am, I’m always looking for body safe lubricants to keep my genitals healthy and happy, and the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant does a pretty good job at not leaving me in a huddling ball of agony.
That may sound like a pretty low bar to reach but I can assure you that’s just the pain talking.
The Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant is an FDA registered, ‘female friendly’ water-based lubricant intended to replicate a person’s natural lubrication. In this effort it performs very well, though not without some flaws.
So, let’s curl up together and take a closer look at the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant.
The Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant
The Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant is a lubricant that’s aiming for assistance. Created by a woman the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant is designed specifically for vaginal use and is pH balanced to reflect this focus. Granted, there’s nothing stopping you from using it on other parts of your anatomy, but the vagina is this lubricant’s priority.
Vaginas are amazing self-cleaning geniuses, but many lubricants really don’t help the vagina when it comes to keeping the harmony. In fact, they often work against the vagina, with harmful ingredients that can be irritating at best and a real health concern at worst.
This means no parabens, nor petroleum, glycerine, silicone, alcohol, hormones, artificial dyes, flavourings or anything else of a similar ilk. The exact ingredients are as follows:
Organic Aloe Barbadensis leaf extract, Sorbitol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Allantoin, Lactic acid, Tocopherol Vitamin E, Potassium sorbate, Organic Stevia Rebaudiana extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Paeonia Albiflora peony root extract, Organic Passiflora Incarnate flower extract.
The only ingredient I have any real confusion about in this entire list is stevia. Why do we need a sweetener in this non-oral lubricant? Aloe Vera has an unpleasant taste (and that’s true with this lubricant, too) but does it really need to be counteracted in this instance? Or is it used to balance out the pH? Either way it does give me a bit of a double take (although it shouldn’t be of issue to most).
For the most part the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant is odourless and almost flavorless. Granted, it has that slight unpleasant, almost chemical tang that many aloe vera products have but it’s nothing that would ruin your appetite should you decide that you’re of the oral persuasion when using it.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant is its consistency; this is an incredibly runny lubricant—to the point where it could almost be considered watery. This gives the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant an incredibly light-weight consistency which is hard to compare to other lubricants. It’s like it is closer in consistency of your average squirty silicone lubricant rather than water-based lubes (which are conventionally thicker).
It’s my assumption that this was a deliberate choice, made to replicate the natural wetness of the vagina with more accuracy. Slick, thick, almost goopy lubricants are great and they have a place in the sex toy industry (and my personal toy chest) but sometimes you don’t really want to feel like you’re using lubricant or worry about having that extra thickness distracting your mind with its invariably sense-grabbing properties.
Comparatively the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant is there but it isn’t necessarily noticeable. It inconspicuously does its job and, although you’re aware of its presence, you wouldn’t consider it to be a fully tactile component of your sex session.
This makes the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant great for pretty much any time when you need a body-safe, gentle, accommodating lubricant for masturbation, PiV sex, or similar penetration without any fuss involved.
Granted, this thinner composition does come with some downsides. I wouldn’t call the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant a good lubricant for use with highly textured toys, nor as a buffer for very powerful wands. It’s ill-suited for anal and you may need to reapply it during a handjob (depending on your technique and duration).
On a practical point, this ridiculously runny lube comes in a squirty-tube bottle for some reason (official term there, of course) meaning that even the slightest squirt sends lubricant pouring out uncontrollably all over the place. I have no idea why Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant decided to go with this container design. It’s just so ridiculously incompatible with the consistency of the lubricant that I can’t quite fathom the thought process.
A lot of lubricant has been inadvertently wasted or used prematurely (to avoid waste) because of this tube’s eagerness to dispense its content. It feels like a sincere shame, especially as this lubricant costs $15.00 for 4oz. Those 4oz don’t feel like they go by too soon but I do lament any over squirt that occurs.
The design of this tube also looks a bit outdated for a modern lubricant. It feels more like a medical cream from the 90’s trying to appeal to a woman’s ‘inner goddess’ than the perfectly practical lubricant that it actually is. This is a bit of a nitpick but even changing to an all-white tube could easily fix this slightly dated aesthetic.
Although I understand what the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant is doing with its ‘female friendly’ angle (and matching pinky-purple color scheme) I do feel like it’s important to stress that not all women will have vulvas and not all vulvas will be owned by women. It’s perhaps more prudent to say ‘Vulva-Friendly’ or ‘Vagina Safe’ rather that ‘the naturally pure choice for mindful women’. It just doesn’t sit quite right with me.
And, yes, I am aware that the last two point could be considered nitpicks. What can I say? The product itself if good. There’s nothing to fault beyond the above.
Overall I was pleased with the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant and it never failed to make PiV sex an easy experience for Mr Peaches and I. This product performs well as a lubricant without ever trying to steal the stage, and I can see this being appreciated by many. That being said, it does have a very specific purpose and it sticks to this purpose quite precisely.
If you’re hoping for a thicker or more versatile lubricant then the Blossom Organics Natural Lubricant is not your friend, but in most other instances this lubricant is a perfectly fine purchase and a must-have if you want your lubricant to feel discreet during use.
