L’Amourose Intimate Moisturizer Water Based Lube Sachets
Pleasure Panel review by sex blogger Carnal Queen
Hey, welcome to my first ever Pleasure Panel review for Cara Sutra! You’ll see me pop up here from time to time with my thoughts on certain products, and in this review I’ve been trying out the L’Amourose Intimate Moisturizer sachets.
L’Amourose are a luxury sex toy manufacturer. I’ve previously reviewed the Vera and the Rosa Rouge, and they really did impress me, the Rosa Rouge especially. I was keen to find out if the L’Amourose level of quality extended into their lubricant! The Intimate Moisturizer is water based, glycerin and paraben free, and comes in a handy box of twenty 4ml sachets.
4ml might not sound like a lot, but a little does go a long way, and one sachet is generally enough for a lengthy sex session for us. I found it to be one of the less viscous lubes that I’ve tried, and although it’s got ample slip for vaginal sex, I wouldn’t even contemplate using it for anal play. It’s fragrance free, and doesn’t have too much of a taste, if anything it tastes a little astringent, nothing horrible though. As with most water based lubricants, it can go a little sticky when you’ve been ‘going at it’ for a while, but it’s easily reactivated by adding a bit of moisture (y’all know I mean spit, right?) to the area. Because it’s a little bit on the watery side, it does tend to travel a bit and end up in other places and on the sheets etc, but it washes right out and doesn’t stain, thankfully!
It’s totally sex toy safe, being water based, so you needn’t worry about it ruining your toys, and I found it lasted a bit longer for just sex toy use, without needing reactivation or reapplication. The ingredients are gentle and will be fine for most people, but it does contain Aloe Barbadensis leaf extract, so if you’re sensitive to this, then this lubricant will most likely not be for you. I find it to be absolutely fine for me, and it doesn’t dry out my skin or irritate me in any way.
It’s a little thing, but I really love how these sachets look. There’s nothing wrong with bold and bright colours or imagery, but these look more elegant and sophisticated. I’d have no issues carrying one of these around in my handbag – after all, you never know when you’re going to need lube! The tear off section is clearly defined, and is really easy to open with just your fingers, but it’s not so vulnerable that it would be easily opened by accident, again great for use on the go!
I’m a Sliquid girl at heart, and although I don’t love the L’amourose Intimate Moisturizer enough to jump ship and use it exclusively, I do like it enough to keep some at hand for travelling convenience or any spontaneous frolics 😉
