Playboy Classic Water Based Lube Review

By Crimescene

Once again I jumped at the chance to write a review of a product selected for me by Cara. That’s right, more lube! This time I was chosen to review the Playboy Classic Water Based Lube. In my opinion, you can never own too much lube and I am always excited to try out new and exciting products on the market. This time I feel very lucky as I favour water-based lube as I find a little goes a long way, it provides enough moisture and is easy to wash off. It’s also compatible with pretty much any toy, but it’s wise to always check beforehand.

As the brand of this particular lubricant was Playboy, I was immediately sceptical yet curious. I often find brands like this to be big names, yet provide poor quality products. I also often find them incredibly tacky. So it is fair to say I had almost made my mind up before even receiving the product, which is pretty bad of me.

I received the Playboy Classic Water Based Lube a few days later, discreetly packaged as always by Cara. Straight away I was surprised by the cardboard box the bottle came in. It was black with the Playboy bunny cut out of the front with another part displaying the bottle inside. It looked a lot better than I had imagined. The back of the box provides you with the usual expected information, such as: recommended uses (foreplay, sexual intercourse), suggested locations (every room of the mansion, by the ocean, by the lake), and directions for use. It also has a list of ingredients which is incredibly short compared to other lubricants I have used. I didn’t find anything particularly nasty in it though so that’s a plus!

I was actually pleasantly surprised by the bottle itself. You can’t tell until opening the box, but the lid of the Playboy Classic Water Based Lube bottle is in the shape of the Playboy bunny. Usually I would find this incredibly tacky, but I think the fact it is simple black plastic means it doesn’t look over the top. The bottle is made from plastic but to look at it, you’d think it was glass. If you look through the clear plastic from the front, you can also see a silhouette of the bunny logo. They certainly make use of that logo at every available opportunity that’s for sure! In fact, it would be very easy to mistake the product for a bottle of men’s aftershave. It really does look like one. There is also a sticker on the back of the bottle providing much of the same information the box did, although oddly, not directions for use.

Now the performance itself also really surprised me. At this point my hopes were higher, but I was still not convinced the Playboy Classic Water Based Lube was going to be any good. However, I tried it solo a few times and I was instantly won over. It lasted a long time, washed off easily, didn’t feel sticky or smell of anything and kept me moist and lubricated. It is my ‘go-to’ lube at the moment. I enjoy using it and that actually adds to my excitement. It’s reliable and I have definitely learned I shouldn’t judge a product beforehand!
