Astroglide Spark Hybrid Personal Lubricant Review

A nice hybrid lube is exactly what I need

As a sex toy reviewer you can imagine how much lube I go through. I have tried some great lubes in the past but also some that have been atrocious as well.

I received a bottle of Astroglide Spark Hybrid Personal Lubricant from AdultShopIt.co.uk to review. It was nice to yet again be able to try something new in the lube department. This is a hybrid lube and that means it's a blend of water-based lube and a silicone lube. This gives it some of the characteristics of both.

It's quite easy to pour the lube through the nozzle in the flip cap. You'll need to spread it quickly over your toy due to its runny consistency. Once spread on a sex toy or your 'bits' though it stays in place pretty well.

Currently I have lots of penetrative sex toys in my review queue. This means that it's the perfect time to give this lube a good run for its money. So, is it something that I can recommend or is it going to be a lube that I won't use again after I publish this review? Read on to find out.

Astroglide Spark Hybrid LubeAstroglide are a US company that produce a large range of lubes and this one is a hybrid lube. It's a water based lube with some of the ingredients of a silicone lube mixed in to make it last longer.

This bottle of hybrid lube was sent to me by AdultShopIt.co.uk. The order arrived quickly and under very plain cover. So once again I've managed to receive another sex product delivery with neither the postie or my nosy neighbour learning of my kinky pastime.

Spark Hybrid lube comes in a flip top 2.5fl oz (73.9ml) bottle that's carried within a retail box. The box clearly states what it is together with some instructions for use and a list of its ingredients.

It's funny because when I opened the box the bottle is much smaller than the box. The bottle actually sits on a piece of cardboard inside the box so that it doesn't rattle around.

Astroglide Spark Hybrid Lube is hygienicaly sealedWhy Astroglide used an over-sized box is beyond me but they must have their reasons for it I guess. Anyway you probably aren't that interested in the packaging so on with the review.

Before you can use this lube you'll need to unscrew the cap and remove the hygiene safety seal from the bottle.

I took this opportunity to sniff the lube to see if it had any discernible smell. Sometimes smells can be very off putting for some people.

I was very surprised to learn that this lube smells like chocolate, or more accurately like chocolate liqueur or Baileys Irish Cream.

It put a smile on my face as I love these products (well chocolate is chocolate after all). I know some people may be put off by the smell, but I like it.

The flip cap nozzle makes pouring easy and it doesn't leakThis lube is a very milky white colour and it's quite runny. I generally prefer thicker lubes but I definitely treated this lube fairly. I gave it a chance to prove itself, you just need to bear its viscosity in mind when you dispense some.

It's quite easy to pour the lube through the nozzle in the flip cap but you'll need to quickly spread it over your toy due to its runny consistency, once spread on a sex toy or your 'bits' though it stays in place pretty well.

As this lube contains silicone you should try it on a small area of any silicone toys that you use with it. This is to check that it isn't going to be a problem with your toys surface finish.

The manufacturers state that it's safe to use with all silicone sex toys but it doesn't hurt to be cautious.

Astroglide Spark Hybrid Lube is milky white and quite runnydI found that it does indeed last for a long period of time and feels very good in use. It's a great lubricant but it did leave me with a slight sticky feeling after use. This is probably when the water based side of it had been absorbed.

I found it to be a very, very effective anal lube due to its long lasting properties. So it's a lube that I can recommend for backdoor fun and games if you know what I mean.

It's also good for butt plugs especially if you're going to be wearing one for a considerable period of time. It makes removal a simple process after play. Unlike water-based lubes this one doesn't get fully absorbed so there's enough left to help with removal.

As this is a hybrid lube it carries quite a lengthy list of ingredients. Most of which are fairly benign, but as it contains Glycerin watch out for yeast infections if you're prone to them.

Ingredients:

  • Glycerin
  • Dimethicone
  • Purified Water
  • Cyclomethicone
  • PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone
  • Propanediol
  • 1,2-Hexanediol
  • Dimethiconol
  • Caprylhydroxamic Acid
  • Natural Flavors

Final Thoughts

All in all this is a pretty good lube, I like its staying power. That has come in handy for my last butt plug review and for continued fun and games. It lasts a surprisingly long time and it is easy to wash of. It does have a strong smell but no taste. I love the chocolate liqueur smell but I know that some people may find it a little off putting.

This is my first review of an Astroglide product and I am pretty impressed with it. If you are looking for a long lasting lube that's safe to use with silicone sex toys then it's one to consider.

I was sent the Astroglide Spark Hybrid Personal Lubricant by Gary at AdultShopIt.co.uk. I would like to thank him for giving me the opportunity to review it for them.
