Those with ultrasensitive erogenous zones should try it Sliquid’s unflavoured and unscented H2O intimate lubricant. Its list of ingredients contains only five items (the first is water, for your information) and the slippery composition does not contain ingredients such as gluten, glycerin, parabens and sulfates. Yes, we know that glycerin has moisturizing effects on the skin, but Dr. Lincoln notes that you may not want it in your lubricant. “Some people are sensitive to glycerin, so they will want to avoid these lubricants,” he says.
Astroglide’s The liquid personal water-based lubricant is a proven lubricant known for its non-sticky and non-greasy feeling. It is also easy to wash off, so feel free to get as dirty as you want with this pick.
The Lelo The personal moisturizer is just as lenient as lubricants due to its rich and intensely moisturizing feeling. This luxury lubricant contains aloe vera for added hydrating and soothing effects (which we can get in a second) for all pleasures without pain.
Tracey Cox Supersex Orgasm Gel is water-based, but its composition is also impregnated with menthol, which provides a feeling of tingling in the clitoris, labia, penis, whatever you can think of. According to Dr. Lincoln, however, your genitals are quite delicate, so those of you who have sensitive bits may want to omit all products with heating or cooling elements, scents, and glitter. If you are not sure, consult your doctor before testing.
The ID Glide Water-Based Lubricant is free of fragrances and oils, and you can also use it with silicone toys and latex condoms without having to worry about it breaking.

Isabel Fay The water-based lubricant may look like a luxurious hand soap, but Dr. Langdon says it’s one of the best water-based lubricants. This free of parabens and gluten is completely odorless and can be used for anal, vaginal and oral sex.
The best flavored water-based lubricants
Fans of giving or receiving oral sex will be happy to know that there are quite a few edible flavored lubricants on the market that they can try. Dr. Lincoln says most water-based lubricants are suitable for ingestion in small quantities, but always make sure you never mix oil-based lubricants (which we’ll get to) and ingestion. “Ingestion of an oil-based lubricant can lead to nausea, vomiting and diarrhea,” he says. In case of doubt, Dr. Lincoln recommends that you read the instructions before using them.
Fruit lovers will fall in love Valentine Cherry-flavored lubricant. This water-based lubricant has a tasty cherry flavor that you will want to lick every drop, and it can also be used safely with condoms.
