Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lube Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Nat and Tom
I received the Swiss Navy Lube 6 Pack to test and review as part of March’s Pleasure Panel round. Huge thanks to Cara and Clonezone! This review is specifically for the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lube which made up half of the pack. These bottles are absolutely tiny (each contain 20ml of product) which makes them perfect for sampling before purchasing a larger bottle and/or ideal to travel with.
Each bottle of the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lube came with a hygienic seal, which is reassuring for those of us who like peace of mind in knowing that our product hasn’t been tampered with. Once the seal is removed, screw the cap back on, flip the lid up and squeeze the bottle to release the lube.
It does come out quite quickly, so be careful not to squeeze too hard. I decided that I’d do a quick patch test on my partner and I before we used the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lube. I’ve never had a reaction to a silicone lubricant before but as I have sensitive skin, it’s best to behave on the safe side. It contains no Glycerin, Proplyene Glycol or Parabens and I’m pleased to say that no irritation occurred.
I was quite surprised by the consistency of the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lube as it wasn’t what I had expected. When I think of silicone lube, I usually think of thickness. I’ve tried multiple silicone lubes from different brands and all of them have been gel-like in consistency, but this one doesn’t feel much thicker than an average water-based product. This had me thinking that I’d find this lube useless, especially following my experience with the anal version, but again, I was surprised.
As the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lube isn’t marketed/labelled as an anal product, I can look past the thickness (or lack of it). It is a bit thin and runny for my usual tastes. However as we’ve been using it for masturbation and vaginal play, I haven’t needed the thickness of an anal lube. I found it to work just fine for those purposes, whether I was using a toy or having penetrative sex with a partner. It removed friction, causing a slick and easy glide. It also lasts a long time and didn’t need reapplying once.
I’m happy with the texture and the way that the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lube feels once applied. There’s no stickiness, greasy feel or oil-like residue that remains after use. It massages into the skin well and leaves a refreshed, hydrated feel. It obviously is harder to remove from a toy than a water-based lubricant as you’d expect, but again, there’s no residue or sticky aftermath to deal with. A good scrub with soapy water will get any traces removed.
In conclusion, this is definitely the better product in this pack. I wouldn’t have minded if it had been slightly thicker, but it’s not a bad product as is. I like the slickness, longevity and the fact that it’s odourless, unlike the anal version I reviewed. I’d be happy to use the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lube again as I think it’s a good, affordable silicone-based lubricant for masturbation and PIV sex. I would not recommend it for anal play though unless the plan is to use something small like a finger or beginners plug.
