Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lubricant Review
Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lubricant review by Pleasure Panel reviewer Poison Hyvee
The bottle of this Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lubricant is extremely petite, but not in a very cutesy way– if you’re looking for a travel-size lube that is nondescript, this is a good candidate. The cap pops off easily (read: if you have lubey fingers already it won’t be too hard) and the lube flows at a controlled but not difficult-to-squeeze level. It’s also clear, so you can see how much you have left, which is very nice.
A word of caution: Don’t use this lube on a silicone toy! Generally, a good rule of thumb is to avoid silicone lube on a silicone toy, although it can be ok for some lube/dildo combinations– you can check by doing a spot test like I did here. For the sake of due diligence, I tested the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lubricant on the base of my Cush O2 (a silicone dildo from Tantus) and here is the result:
Basically, it made a sort of welt on the silicone in the 30 seconds or so that I left the lube on it. Had I poured this lube over the head of the dildo and kept it on for a longer period of time, it would definitely ruin the dildo.
Before I put a lube in my body, I always read about the ingredients. The Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lubricant has only 3 ingredients: cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone, and tocopheryl acetate. Dimethicone and tocopheryl acetate are both reported to be mild on the skin and not dangerous to your health except for the unlikely chance of mild irritation. Tocopheryl acetate is actually Vitamin E, which is good for skin softness and general well-being! Cyclopentasiloxane does have a bit of controversy surrounding it, but it looks acceptable for topical use.
This was my first experience with silicone lube, and I have to say it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. It seemed to last pretty long when I used it to rub my fingers together, but when I used it with my Nobessence Seduction ( a girthy wood g-spot dildo), it felt like my water-based lube. It is very runny to the point where it was difficult to photograph it in a blob. I also tried using the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lubricant with a dildo in the shower, but it was washed off very easily. After a few minutes, the dildo was slippery to my fingers, but to my genitals it was like it wasn’t there at all.
Lastly, I tried the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lubricant on my Njoy Pure Plug, and I was pleasantly surprised that it stayed fairly well. While the lube is pretty runny when you apply it to a toy, it didn’t leak out of me like I was fearing it would. It was still there when I pulled the plug out, which was very helpful as that experience can be less than pleasant without sufficient lube.
All in all, this is not a bad lube, but I don’t see any advantages for this lube over, say, Sliquid Sassy (a viscous water-based lube). The small size is nice for travel, however, and it is fairly inexpensive for a body-safe lube. I would recommend the Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Lubricant for traveling sex-havers who are looking for a lube that is inexpensive but safe.
