I love Latex, Leather and Lace. They’re a company who will always help you out by answering any questions you might have about their products. If they don’t know the answer they’ll be able to find out, or direct you to someone or somewhere with the answer. They even told me how to pronounce Pjur (Pure). Thank goodness, because they kindly gave me the Pjur Aqua Water Based Lubricant to try in exchange for an honest review. I think it would have driven me mad not knowing!
I’m always trying new lubricants. There are just so many to choose from that it can be difficult to decide just what it is you’re looking for. The things I’ve decided are most important for me are that it must have no parabens in the ingredient list. I prefer a lubricant that does not include glycerin too. Although I am not hugely prone to yeast infections I prefer not to risk it as wow, that can be an uncomfortable sensation. I do not mind using products that include glycerin on Mr Rose though.
Things I really appreciate during my slippery good fun are that it remains slippery. I want it to be long lasting and non sticky. So how did the Pjur Aqua do?
- Aqua (water)
- Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride
- Citric Acid
- Propylene Glycol
- Benzyl Alcohol
I’m no chemist so you’ll have to forgive me, I’m not even able to say a lot of these ingredients, so I’ve googled them in order to decipher it. There are a couple of ingredients here that can cause irritation. Namely the glycerin, which can cause thrush and the Propylene Glycol which can increase the osmolality of the lube. I normally avoid using personal lubrications with these in. To find out more about what sort of ingredients to avoid in lubricants check out Dangerous Lilly’s The Big Lube Guide or Toymeetsgirl’s Water-based Lube What You Should Know.
What’s Pjur Aqua Water Based Lubricant Like?
The Pjur Aqua comes in a black 100ml bottle with a screw top. It appears to be aimed at men with its dark, simple, black and blue packaging. I don’t think it is particularly discreet. It has the words “super slippery long lasting” written on the front of the bottle. It isn’t in your face either though as it does keep the writing quite small and there are no graphic images of nudity or overly amorous couples.
The liquid lubricant is clear, odourless, tasteless and quite runny. If you are looking for a thicker lubricant this might not be for you. It can be a little messy and might have been better with a pump action bottle for easier application. It is quite long lasting though and feels really good. Soft, silky smooth and, most importantly, it doesn’t become sticky. At all.
It states on the bottle that it is latex condom safe and that it suits and is recommended for daily use.
The Pjur Aqua Water Based Lubricant feels undeniably good during use. It’s quite long lasting. However, if you are prone to developing yeast infections or would just prefer a product without glycerin and Propylene Glycol this may be one to avoid. I’d recommend this product for use during penis masturbation and for use with penis masturbation toys. It is safe to use with silicone toys as it is a water based product. Even if you decide this particular lubricant is not for you Pjur have quite a large range including Pjur Woman.
