Premium Aqua Gel by Give Lube

Lubricants for me have always been a bit of a battle rather than a pleasure as I have been so allergic to most over the years with endless embarrassing trips to the GP for antibiotics when I've reacted badly to the latest, slipperiest, best tasting etc etc.
Not only have I suffered from basic hypersensitivity but most have succeeded in completely upsetting my PH balance and then taking up to a month to get back to normal, so you can see my reluctance to try new lubes.
But after receiving this lube with some sextoys from a company at Christmas I found that after tentatively doing some small skin tests, that WOOHOO YIPPEE I wasn't allergic to Give Lubes Premium aqua gel; this for me was a huge success and such a relief and really exciting to be able to use such a lovely lube.
So of course its completely improved my sexlife over night.
Thank you Give Lube...x

The mini Lube Tube I originally received as a free sample was a little on the runny side, but just being able to use a lube for me was a huge success so being a little runny wasn't a real problem. So when I found out Give Lube had updated their latest Premium Aqua gel to a slightly thicker formula I couldn't wait to try it.
I spoke to Give Lube and they explained they had listened to all of their previous customer feedback and simply added a little extra thickening to the already brilliant formula. Just the fact they made this slight alteration in itself after listening to feedback is a very high recommendation about the company themselves.

So I was really excited to receive some new samples from the lovely guys at Give Lube I cant thank them enough!
I knew I was going to like it, if not love it. I am also a firm believer of supporting local companies that have really made the effort to produce a beautiful safe healthy product for us all.

The Premium aqua gels comes in a brilliant black plastic tube with a well made flip top lid avoiding spills or gunky leaky lids, the tubes are easily wipeable.

I loved the modern looking classy packaging and the 3 sizes they come in, Give Lube kindly sent me the tiny compact 30ml Mini tube and the Midi 100ml midi tube.

The simplistic luxury classy packaging makes you feel like you have a very expensive cosmetic product in your hand, I loved the modern black and blue logo, it could easily be mistaken for shampoo or shower gel at first glance.
The flip top lids are firm and completely secure, you have to snap them shut forming a great seal with no leaks or spills. There's no worry of them popping open in your bag or jacket.

The classy compact mini is absolutely ideal for everyone to take anywhere; pop in a bag, glove box, in the bedside drawer, I keep mine in my pillowcase for lube emergencies.The Mini lube tube is slightly bigger than an average sized lipstick so wouldn't really be noticed in your bag or left on the side unless someone was to be nosey and pick it always get one dont
We now have one in my bag, the bedroom and the car....well you never know I like to be prepared.

The Midi a 100ml size lube tube with identical great quality fliptop lid will last you ages.I adore this size and again the packaging looks like an expensive high-end shower gel or shampoo bottle. A little lube goes a very long way.

The Science bit
Being an ex-nurse and beautician I really appreciate when a company adds excellent quality ingredients.
The Premium Aqua gel is dermatologically tested and contains Aloe vera and panthenol for added skincare. Give Lube have completely PH balanced their lubes making them completely safe for those of us who are extremely sensitive to products found in many other brands of lube.
Its Paraben, Glycerine and Oil FREE, colourless and easy to clean up. Once opened you have 12 months to use it and unopened it has a shelf-life of 30 months.
 I want to add a little more than I usually would as its so important to know what's in a product that you will be using in and on your body; its vital to know what you are using is safe; so if you get bored with basic ingredient facts scroll to the next paragraph.
Aloe vera
Anti inflamotory benefits has been used as a skin treatment for hundreds of years.
Aloe Vera is one of the most popular and sought after as it hydrates cracked, dry skin and helps restore softness in a remarkably gentle and non-abrasive way. It has been nature’s anti-aging lotion for centuries....even better to know for down there girls.
Panthenol, also known as vitamin B5, is one of the most beneficial sensitive skin care supplements and cosmetic ingredients available on the market today. Because of its soluble compounds it can be found in moisturisers, skin care products, hair conditioners, shampoos; as well as in eye shadow, lipstick and mascara.
It acts as a lubricant on the skin surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It improves hydration, reduces itching and inflammation of the skin as well as accelerating the healing processes.
It works by being absorbed into the skin moisturising the layers of the skin giving a plumping effect erasing fine lines and naturally stretching the skin, think how sexy your pussy will be girls.
Both these lubes are completely safe on all toys and latex condoms.

Whats even more important is what this lube DOESNT HAVE IN IT!!!
The Premium Aqua gel doesn't contain Parabens and on my inquisitive public ...!
This is just a precautionary note as there are so many arguments for and against why so many companies now choose NOT to use Parabens; because there have been studies that say that it is potentially dangerous and that have linked parabens to cancer.
Glycerins are not advised in personal products because they contain sugars which can promote the growth or yeasts internally leading to infections.

Okay you can wake up now guys and girls.......sorry!!!

The upgraded formula has such a huge improvement on an already great product. The consistency of the original gel was a little runny and would drip or run off fairly quickly, the new upgraded formula is much thicker with just enough gloopiness which clings and slowly runs down your finger or a toy covering the surface well.
Rubbing your fingers together you really gain that extra slip and slide and I found works beautifully with my extra grippy silicon toys.

I just wanted to add a quickie video so you can see the actual consistency.

You don't have to squeeze the tube just flip the cap and tilt and the lube slowly pours out, the tube is firm so you cant accidentally squeeze too much out,  the hole is just a perfect size to get the right amount onto your hand or toy; they really have thought of everything.

 The Mini Premium Aqua Gel Lube tube

You don't need much at all a little goes a very long way. It doesn't leave any sticky residue afterwards, funnily enough my lube I have been using for years did leave a sticky residue. But I put up with it as I wasn't allergic to it.
I did my usual patch test on the lube before using it and WOOHOO it was such a relief not to feel the familiar tingling or worse itching, YAY it actually felt really soothing, something I had never felt before.

For masturbation it combines well with natural lubrication and hasn't ever dried out at all on me. But being waterbased it activates again using saliva.Once applied to my sextoys it runs slowly down giving and even coverage of lube without dripping off.

It has a pleasant Aloe Vera taste and very slight herbal aroma (even though it says its odourless) but nothing unpleasant.
Anal play
We have even used this for anal play and found it plenty thick enough so its a 2 for one lube, although some of you may prefer your anal lubes a little thicker. Some anal lubes for me have been too slippy and we couldn't get any friction, but this gives us just enough slip and slide without losing any sensation.
This is one of the few lubes you can actually use for massage ideal for foreplay. It absorbs into my skin well but not too fast and it does leave it soft and being an eczema sufferer I still had no itchy irritations. I'm so relieved.
 The lube itself is washed off easily with soap and water.

I absolutely love this excellent quality lube and I have officially changed over from my only regular lube I have used for many years because it actually feels soothing on my skin and leaves no after sticky residue. I have even considered using it as a hand-cream as I adore the consistency its just perfect now they have upgraded the formula of an already great product.
If anyone was going to be allergic to something it would be me so I can absolutely say hand on heart I didn't even feel a tingle or itch anywhere. I can use it all over my body and in a variety of ways for vaginal, masturbation, anal, massage and even oral.
I also love the easy to use elegant, classy packaging that comes in different sizes depending where you wish to use it. I adore the small affordable 30ml tube as it fits in your bag, pocket, glove compartment anywhere for that "Lube emergency" what's not to like!

Modern, classy packaging,
Variety of sizes,
Soothing on the skin,
Can be used for all types of sexual pleasures,
Thick enough for anal sex (for us, but others may prefer thicker consistencies).
No sticky residues,
No unpleasant odours,
PH optimised,
Long lasting,
A little goes a long way,
