Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Just Jess
Having tried my first hybrid lube recently and loving how long lasting it was I was keen to try the Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube when a bottle was available to test from sextoys.co.uk via the Pleasure Panel.
My bottle of Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube is 50ml and unusually for such a small bottle has a pump action nozzle. There is also a safety clip too so this is perfect for travelling.
The bottle has purple bubbles highlighting Lubido hybrids key features:
* long lasting,
* paraben free,
* none tacky,
* latex free,
* toy safe.
I loved this design. It makes it easy to spot Lubido’s key selling points without reading the tiny print on the bottle.
As I write quite a lot of lube reviews I’m passionate about the ingredients in them.
I was happy to see that Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube is paraben free. Parabens – if you don’t know – are preservatives, which feature in many cosmetics but are largely being replaced due to concerns about possible links to increased oestrogen production and cancer.
Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube does contain glycerin, glyceryl stearate and propylene glycol all of which add to the slipperiness of the lube – but they can convert to sugars in the vagina. This can lead to yeast infections especially if you are susceptible to them.
I absolutely refuse to try any lubricants containing parabens and try to avoid any with sugars such as glycerin and propylene glycol. I’ve never had a negative experience myself but having read a lot about these I know that some people with sensitive skin or who are susceptible to UTI’s avoid them just in case. As both of these apply to me it’s something I’m always conscious of when I try a new lube.
How It Feels
Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube is thick and none sticky to the touch, it felt silky when I squeezed a blob out for my tester pictures and the creamy texture coated my dildo perfectly.
I patch tested a silicone vibrator overnight due to the silicone content. Silicone lubes can react with silicone sex toys destroying their surface composition. As Lubido is a hybrid lube I wanted to be sure this wouldn’t damage my favourite toys. When I cleaned this off the next morning there was no surface degradation and no residue left by the Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube. It also didn’t stain my sheets.
In the interests of thorough testing I also taste tested the Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube. Don’t! Wow it was bad, seriously chemically and just awful; leave blow jobs to flavoured lubes, this is definitely not suitable.
I didn’t get chance to test the Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube properly until a few days after my initial photos and taste/touch tests…
My first use was with a steel plug. I managed to wear this for 3 or 4 hours without reapplication and it was only towards the end of that time I began to feel slightly uncomfortable. The thick and creamy texture was perfect for extended anal use, I found Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube really cushioning and perfect for using anally, even with larger plugs.
The addition of silicone to the water based formula helps hybrid lubes last much longer than just water based lubes, I found Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube perfect for hand jobs. My other half is circumcised and always needs a good lube when we play. Lubido Hybrid was perfect on him, non-drying and long-lasting meaning I could be rougher with him – which I know he loves.
Up to this point my Mr and I were loving Lubido moisturising water based hybrid lubricant. It hadn’t damaged our toys, was perfect for hand jobs and I’d managed to wear my Njoy pure plug out for a meal with no discomfort. Ok, we knew it wasn’t blow job friendly; but in any case we prefer flavoured lubes or none at all for oral.
I wouldn’t normally test a lube vaginally last but that’s just the way our play sessions happened that day. Having already tested Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube on my wrist (one of my main flare up areas for sensitive skin), and having used it anally, I didn’t do a sensitivity test on my vulva. It stung! A lot. We had to stop fucking while I jumped in the shower. Complete passion killer.
I had only just finished my period so thought that maybe I was more sensitive than normal but there was no way I was trying the Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube again on myself. And worst of all I ended up with a course of antibiotics a few days later.
I’m not saying the Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube gave me a UTI – as I am susceptible to them – but stingy pee followed stingy lube 🙁 The remainder of the bottle is now in my other half’s toy box, for his solo play only.
Sorry Lubido, it was all looking so promising – but I can’t recommend this lube if there’s any chance it caused my UTI. No-one wants to pee razor blades, so unfortunately the Lubido Hybrid Moisturising Lube gets 1/10 from me.
