This year Gvibe (ex-FT London, ex-Fun Toys) launched some of its own sex cosmetics line under the brand's typical name – Gjuice. The set is also typical – two lubricants and a toy cleaner. Recently one of the water-based Gjuice lubricants came to me and today I will tell you my impressions.
First of all, of course, you notice the bottle – heavy glass with a mirror-smooth surface, drop-shaped. It is more like some perfumery. The object is stylish and will look nice in the bedroom. At the same time, it is weighty (275 grams!), and strives to slip out of wet fingers. In addition, the reflection does not show how much lubricant is left and whether it is time to run to the store for a new one.
The description on the official website calls the Gjuice dispenser a specially designed spray dispenser. But there is no spray – the lubricant is delivered in the same way as fr om other dispenser bottles, only in small drops. Such frugality is not to my taste: one pressing is not enough, you have to press on. But if you often find yourself adding too much lubricant, you might find this overuse protection handy. Separately, I note the outstanding spout, which allows you to pour lubricant exactly wh ere you need it even in the dark. This is a plus.
The situation with the consistency is strange. The official website does not indicate what it consists of, but it is clearly stated what is not in – glycerin and parabens. But here is the list of Gjuice ingredients that the retailers give: cellulose gum, propylene glycol, glycerin, water, polyethylene glycol, potassium sorbate, tetrasodium EDTA, sodium benzoate, methylparaben, tetrahydroxypropylethylenediamine, carbomer. I really dislike such inconsistencies; if parabens, like GMOs, are feared in vain, then glycerin can provoke an exacerbation of thrush, which is better to know in advance.
Since the composition contains three components that increase density, it is not surprising that the lubricant is relatively dense - it is not jelly, but the ball of lubricant does not spread over the skin. Such lubricants are especially good for anal stimulation, especially since the pH level (around 6) is still more suitable for this area than for the vagina. Ironically, the manufacturer speaks directly to this: the phrase “pH balanced for the skin” means an indicator that coincides with the pH of the skin, i.e. 5.5, while the vaginal environment requires more acidic formulations, with a pH of ~ 4. The thick texture of the grease results in stickiness after drying.
In general, the sensations are mixed. The lubricant is not bad in use - it glides well, dries slowly, does not smell and does not burn, but here and there you notice some small side effects that can spoil your impression. Gjuice, I think, is suitable first of all for those who want to keep on the bedside table a piece of sexual purpose, proud in its luxury. And there, I hope, the manufacturer will finalize the formula with the packaging, and these mercury drops will be an object of love for everyone.
