Lubricant that is as good for the body as it is for the environment and those who live in it, because.. Why not!
Good Clean Love Almost Naked personal lubricant was sponsored by Good Clean Love for an honest review. This does not affect my opinions.
Good Clean Love is a company making organic and vegan friendly products ranging from lubricants and massage oils to oral mints. While I love that we can have organic intimate products, I feel that often when the organic card is being played, it seems like an excuse to sell half good products at a premium price. However when a product is actually on par with some of the better ones in the market, I am all in! That brings me to Good Clean Love’s Almost Naked personal lubricant.
The lubricant is 95% organic, as Agar and Xanthan gum is not available in organic form. It contains no petrochemicals and glycerin. It is 100% vegan and not tested on animals. Another interesting note is that the lube is CE marked, a standard for product safety in the EU. I have been informed that the lube is actually approved as a medical product in the UK therefore needing the CE mark. Other than that the packaging is very nice and effective – easy to open and close with slippery hands. The green color is refreshing and not something usually associated with lubricants, but it is still not very discreet.
Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice, Xanthan gum, Agar, Lactic acid, Potassium sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Natural flavor.
The lubricant is clear and thick. It is gel like with goopy properties. It is very slick and has a surprisingly high viscosity, meaning it does not drip or run away. But it still feels rather light and watery in use. It reduces friction very well and is perfectly suited for anal sex. It does not coat the skin in a way that the sensation disappears, but it is substantial enough to enable that smooth motion. I haven’t experienced any problems at all and it feels super gentle on the skin. That is always a good thing.
For use with toys it does have a small drawback. For external use, it tends to dry up before I’m done leaving me with a less than optimum glide. This is true when I’m using my hands or a Tenga/Fleshlight. I often find the need to reapply a bit during one session. The lube can get a boost by adding a pinch of water too. It works pretty well with insertable toys. It spreads out very well but for silicone toys it separates a bit and won’t stay nice and even. I love to use it with my metal plugs as they get super slick with little effort.
The lubricant does not get sticky but when it dries up it can leave a dry film on the skin, but it never feels greasy and it washes away easily so I do not see that as much of a negative. It also smells a bit like vanilla which is not bad. Even the taste is pleasant and almost non existent to be honest. It is not at all bitter like water based lubricants tends to be.
Overall I am very happy with the Almost Naked personal lubricant. It is a great lube, but I think it really excels with a partner. Priced at only $14.99 for the 120ml size, I think it is a great deal! You can even get a smaller 45ml for $9.99 to try it out. Both sizes are available over at Good Clean Love. Pretty neat!
