Oh, c’mon: As if I could resist reviewing this lube. It’s basically everything I love in life.
Flavored lube? Check.
Sliquid Product? Check.
Peach? Peach, you say! Sign me the fuck up!
Sure, tangerine might be tagging along for the ride but I don’t care. I’m not opposed to the odd tangerine, after all, especially when pairing it with my own peachy inspiration.
I spent a looong long time craving the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant as I waited for it to become easier to get to the UK. Peepshowtoys made the process of getting it quite easy.
So let’s dive in to this review and look at the newest oral offering from Sliquid. I’m excited guys!
The Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant
The Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant is part of Sliquid’s oral lubricant line, of which I always make sure I have an ample stash. My favorites to date are the Green Apple (think fizzy apple candy) and the Cherry Vanilla (think cherry bakewells) and I would sincerely be lost without them.
Whereas some oral lubricants have a lot of flavor but paired with a sticky viscosity which makes providing a handjob alongside your oral action frustrating, the entire Sliquid Swirl line is, as their name suggests, so wonderfully slick, slippery, and aqua-liscious that you hardly need to reapply at all (depending on how much you lap up during use).
The Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant is a water-based lubricant, making it compatible with condoms, easy to apply, and easy to wash off. Sliquid pay very close attention to the composition of their lubricant and this is the case with the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant.
As such, the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant is paraben-free, glycerin-free, and have been formulated specifically to work well with vulvas. That last part might seem a bit odd but it’s primarily due to the smart-but-sensitive eco-system that the vagina and vulva fosters, which thrives at a certain pH balance and which can easily get bacterial infections or find itself having other negative reactions if upset.
By focusing on making sure that their lubricant is pH balanced Sliquid essentially makes their product kind to every kind of body, rather than excluding sensitive vaginas and then creating a ‘for Women’ product to sell separately to counterbalance this (it’s happened before with other brands, as outlandish as this also sounds).
Sliquid also condemn animal testing and their products are completely vegan, including the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant and, oh my gosh, this makes me so happy. I’m a cock-sucking maniac but I also like to stick to my morals, so it’s nice to know that their are products that allow me to responsibly practice my sexual preferences.
I’m going to be as translucent as possible and say that yes: I pretty much recommend any and all Sliquid lubricants (with the exception being the Sizzle if you dislike sensation lubes). As water-based lubricants go, you won’t get a smoother, more hydrating, and intuitively alluring lubricant than the Sliquid line.
The Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant falls in to this category, and its consistency is so wonderfully slick that it ranks highly as one of my go-to’s for oral lubricant that has enough slide and staying power to really go the distance.
Aroma-wise the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant is very delicate. Of course, there will be some, because this is a flavored lubricant, but it won’t detract from the experience for those who are sensitive to smells, and it’s not like a fragrance was deliberately added to draw in the senses.
Taste is where the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant and it was this that obviously drew me to this lubricant, so how does it fare?
Not my favorite Sliquid Swirl, but not the worst.
It is what is is.
To elaborate on this kind of ‘meh’ sentiment: The Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant tastes pleasant enough, but it’s that kind of mild, fruity taste that you’d get from flavored water. The taste is there, it’s a very natural tastes (as opposed to an overly sugary or artificial taste), but it’s also very gentle. It’s probably the second most mild of the Sliquid Swirl line that I’ve tried, ourside of the Strawberry flavor, and I personally just like a bit more kick to my oral lubricant.
Focusing on the plus side, the flavors are really nice. The tangerine takes over from the peach at first but then you get the gentle balance of the peach kick in before finishing on a slight tang that is, again, all tangerine. It’s nice, and if you’re a fan of flavored water and don’t want any more potency from your oral lube than that then you will adore the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant. I just find myself craving a little more.
The ingredients for the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant are of a high quality and are as follows:
Purified Water, Plant Cellulose (from Cotton), Cyamopsis (Guar Conditioners), Natural Flavoring, Aspartame, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid
I personally have no qualms with this list, but I know some people will be upset to see Aspartame on the list – a non-saccharine based artificial sweetener that is currently getting some bad rep which isn’t conclusive at this point.
If you’re avoiding sweeteners then you’ll have a hard time with oral lubricants in general, but I respect you decision to opt out.
Outside of this, though, I really don’t consider there to be any objective issues with the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant, which is a truly brilliant lubricant that simply isn’t to my taste.
When I think peach I tend to think of a fruit that is supremely juicy, gushing with fluids, and naturally rich in flavor and personality. But peaches can also be rather hit-and-miss, and it is so easy for me to bite in to a peach only to consider it a dull dud of a fruit compared to my expectations.
I think this is somewhat comparable to my experience with the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant, and I just set my expectations of the strength of its flavor too high.
There is nothing wrong with the Sliquid Naturals Swirl Tangerine Peach Lubricant. It’s a great lubricant, but it’s not about to go bumping my apple and cherry favorites off of their pedistol.
I almost feel like M. Night Shamalayan, dropping such a twist at your feet, but there it is.
Fruit-water fans rejoice, I’ll be over here lapping up come cherry bakewell.
