Licx Deluxe Cream and Gel Lubricants
Licx Deluxe Cream Lube and Gel Lube
When I heard about a new lube manufacturer in the UK - Licx. I had to get in touch and ask if they could send me some samples to try out and review for them. I am delighted to say that they sent me some of their range of great products to try in exchange for an unbiased review.
As you can imagine I do tend to go through more lubricants than most people, but I guess that comes with the territory and so I enjoy trying new ones out. Constantly searching for the holy grail of lubes.
Licx sent me samples of their two lines of lubricants and each will be reviewed in turn here.
I found that both of these lubes last a long time and their thick nature make them really easy to apply in small quantities without any waste. That makes for a cost effective lube.
So on with the review, how did they both perform?
Licx have a great attitude to their customers, they provide a discreet service with some pretty amazing products and they listen to feedback good and bad. Their product line is evolving and I must say that their first creations are pretty damned good.
Everyone is welcome at Licx and we will do our utmost to serve you with consideration and discretion.
Looking at their site it's obvious that they are trying to create a sophisticated brand image and that they are very approachable. I love the design of their product packaging, it's very nicely done, instilling confidence even before you try their products out.
They provide free shipping on all orders over £15 and guarantee discretion. All of their lubes come in a range of sizes from handy bag or pocket sized 5ml sachets to 250ml pump action bottles for the discerning lube addict.
My package from them arrived quickly and discreetly so I can certainly vouch for that side of their business.
Licx Gel Lube
This is the best product in the Licx range without a doubt. It is a thick water based lubricant that goes a long way. It is available in 5ml sachets, 100ml tube and 250ml bottles. As its name suggests it is a very thick lube and its performance is not dissimilar to Sliquid Sassy anal lube. For a new lube to be compared with a Sliquid product is definitely a good thing.
Why choose a thick lube like a gel? Firstly it means that it is easy to apply to just where you need it so you don't need to use as much and cleaning up afterwards is easier as it won't run everywhere. Thicker lubricants also provide a better barrier between your sensitive membranes and your toys or whatever you are using to enjoy yourself.
It is water based, pH balanced, Paraben and oil free which makes it a great body safe lube to use. I also love the fact that it hasn't been tested on animals which is another great positive. It does however contain Propylene glycol which may affect users with sensitive skin. I didn't have any irritation from it at all but as with all lubes check the ingredients for anything you are have a sensitivity for.
I found that it really is a very good lube and I didn't need to top it up in use except when experimenting with it anally.
As it's so thick it does lend itself to anal fun and I am happy to report that it is perfectly adequate for anal use. You may find that you need to reactivate it with a splash of water if using it anally as it may dry up on you. It's the same with other water based anal lubes again like Sliquid Sassy. Comparing the two together their features and performance are eerily similar.
I only have one negative observation about its performance that I am not too keen on and it is probably related to its consistency but when it's almost dry it's very sticky which is a feeling I am not too keen on. Once dry though it is fine. It is also very easy to clean off using just a flannel and some warm water. It's something that I thought I should comment on but it doesn't detract from the fact that I love this lube and will be using it again.
I love thick lubes preferring them over their inadequate runny counterparts and so this lube really has caught my attention, I can see it being Licx's most popular product as it is so versatile and body safe. I can highly recommend it to anyone looking for a thick, long lasting water based lube.
It doesn't have any discernible smell but it does have a very bad chemical taste that lingers on your tongue, for this reason it isn't a lube to use in any form of oral fun.
A box of five sachets costs just £4.99 with the 100ml bottle costing £9.99 and the 250ml pump bottle costing just £19.99
Licx Deluxe Cream Lube
Forming a drop of it on my fingertip I was surprised at how long it held its shape, it just didn't want to run or flatten out at all. I played with it between my fingertip and thumb and I can directly compare it to Bad Dragons Cumlube in its stringiness and it's a lot of fun for this reason. This was a really nice surprise as I haven't found any other product that compares to it. It's available in 5ml sachets, 100ml tube and 250ml bottles.
Even though this is the Deluxe lube I think that the Gel Lube beats it to the post for reasons I will highlight below.
It really does last a long time and feels really nice, it's incredibly creamy and is really easy to spread and rub in. In use it provides a good cushion between you and your toys. I prefer toys with a lot of texture and so thicker lubes work best for me.
If you rub it in you have no problems with this lube at all but if it is left to dry in pools then it goes very sticky and almost glue like. This coupled with its stringy nature makes it more difficult to clean off after you have finished using it.
It's easy to apply as it's so thick and I found it great for anal fun because of its creamy texture. I found that I didn't need to top it up as it does last a long time. It feels incredibly smooth when you smear it out over your skin and you can actually rub it in like a moisturiser as it is so thick.
This lube tastes even worse than the Gel lube and I strongly recommend that you don't even try tasting it. The bad taste really does linger on your tongue so again this lube isn't for oral lovers at all which is a shame.
The biggest drawback with this lube for some people will be this lube's ingredients. It contains parabens as well as Propylene Glycol and if you are sensitive to them steer clear of this lube and opt for the Gel Lube instead. That said I had no problems using it and it works well for me. I really like its creamy stringy consistency.
Purified water, Isopropyl myristate, Propylene glycol, Polyethylene oxide, Sodium polyacrylate, Sodium methylparaben,Trideceth-6,Sodium propylparaben, Hydrogenated polydecene, Chlorhexidine digluconate.
I found that both of these lubes last a long time and their thick nature make them really easy to apply in small quantities without any waste. That makes for a cost effective lube. The thick nature of both lubes gives you a great buffer when using textured toys of even a toy mounted on a fucking machine.
Each does the job well but if I had to choose only one it would be the Gel lube.
Fucking Machine Friendliness
I found these lubes great for use on my fucking machines as they last a long time and provide a good buffer for high speed play with textured toys. They do need topping up occasionally but that is common to all of the water based lubes that I have tried.
As they are thick and creamy lubes they are also good for anal play but you will find yourself needing to top up or reactivate it more frequently than with pussy play.
- Long lasting
- Thick consistency
- Washes off easily
- Good buffer
- Parabens in the Deluxe Cream lube will not suit everyone.
I was surprised that I was going to like both lubes and Licx has created two great lubes straight off the bat. I can't wait to see what the conjure up next as these will be hard to beat. With two great thick and creamy lubes to choose from, you should find one to your liking no matter what you feel about the ingredients. However, that said do check the ingredients before you buy incase there is anything in there that might spoil your fun.
Try one of the Licx Mixed Sachet Packs as a starter to see just how good these lubes really are. I hope that you have as much fun using them as I have.
