System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube Review (60ml)
By Pleasure Panel reviewer BarginHunta
Always open to trying new lubricants, and being a particular fan of anything bubble gum flavoured or scented we were both looking forward to seeing how the System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube would perform.
We received the 60ml sized bottle of the System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube for review, and this would be an ideal ‘travel’ size:
The bottle is decorated in typical “Candy Shop” pastel colours – nothing particularly ‘stand-out’ about it, but very fitting to the theme of the lubricant all the same.
The top of the bottle is a simple push spout, which whilst not as convenient as a pump top, it very acceptable for this size of bottle, and a lot more user-friendly than a straight screw cap.
Also worthy of note (before you bust your handle or the bottle trying to squeeze some lube out!) is that there is a tamper seal on the bottle, so don’t forget to remove this before first use!
For those that may have sensitivities or other concerns about ingredients see below:
Water, Glycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Chloride, Sucralose, Flavour, Citric Acid
How It Feels
The System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube itself is quite slippery when first dispensed (as you might expect!), but we did find that it didn’t last long before it started to dry out and become sticky. Of course, as with all water-based lubricants, a quick spritz of water and it is deliciously slippery again, but in our opinion it certainly seemed to dry out quicker than some other water-based lubricants we have used.
As for being “flavoured” – it is certainly sweet and there is a distinctive bubble gum scent to it, which do combine well to at least give the illusion that it might be bubble gum flavoured, but I can really be sure. That said I don’t intend to be eating or drinking this is large quantities anyway, so if all you care about is that the taste isn’t offensive, well then its fine!
Clean up is nice and straight forward, as with all water based lubricants, extra water and you can simply wash away any surplus lubricant.
A useful little bottle of lubricant in the 60ml size, probably ideally suited to travel, especially with the flip-top style lid serving to both make dispensing easy, and also sealing the bottle well when closed. The lubricant itself is ‘adequate’, and if you have a supply of water on-hand to refresh it when it starts to dry out then there is certainly nothing wrong with it. As far as flavours go I wouldn’t recommend dining out on it, but should your tongue or mouth wish to venture to places the lubricant has been you are unlikely to find the taste in anyway offensive.
Overall rating 7/10
