It won’t feel sticky or irritate sensitive skin.

When a product has more than 1,400 rave reviews, some starting with “OH MY JESUS” (in all caps), “literally will transform your life,” and “this is the best stuff EVER,” you sit up and pay attention. And that’s exactly what you should do with one of Amazon’s best-selling hypoallergenic lubes—the Luxe Silicone Personal Lubricant by Penchant Premium (Buy It, $15,—and then immediately click “add to cart.” 

As you may well know if you’ve ever tried a lubricant when getting it on (if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?), it increases the intensity by a few thousand notches. But with all the toe-curling benefits it can provide, many users of common lube brands report some cons: stickiness (have you ever tried cleaning sticky lube from yourself, the bedding, the nightstand, the floor… it’s no fun), sensitivity, redness, burning, itching, and even allergic reactions. This is because most conventional lubricants are made with parabens, petroleum, glycerin, and fragrances—ingredients all known to irritate sensitive skin. And this is where Penchant Premium’s silicone-based lube differs from others.

Penchant’s lube is made using only four natural, hypoallergenic ingredients that are safe for users with even the most sensitive skin. Plus, it’s odorless, doesn't feel sticky or gooey, has a neutral taste (unlike the perfume-tanged gunk other lubricants try to pass off as strawberry-flavored), and can be used with condoms. Using just a smidgeon of this stuff will keep you thoroughly lubricated from foreplay to the main event, meaning that you won’t have to stop mid-action for reapplication, which can be a real mood killer. (Here are some of the reasons you're dry ~down there~.)

Need further proof? Amazon reviewers also confirm that the Penchant silicone lube is basically the best thing to enter the bedroom.

“If you're like me and you and your partner have tried all sorts of store brand lubricants, then you know how gross some of them leave you feeling afterward, or how they get sticky in the middle, or how they simply just have an uncomfortable feeling from start to finish.," explained one reviewer. "This stuff is about the simplest yet most satisfying lubricant I've ever tried. It's ridiculously long-lasting, with no gross feeling afterward," 

“It never gets sticky," wrote another fan. "The smell and taste are practically non-existent, and it's really smooth.” 

“WOW!” exclaimed one obviously happy customer. “I am sensitive to glycerin and was worried about trying anything new but I have had no irritation at all with this and it really lasts. Very good at keeping our 14-year marriage exciting!”

“Let me just sprinkle you guys with some truth," began another reviewer. “I’ve tried so many lubes and they’ve all burned me in some way or made me swollen/numb. I’ve always had a hard time staying wet or even getting wet. I used this stuff and it was AMAZING. It lasts longer and I didn’t have to reapply. It felt really nice and I’m honestly just at a loss for words. If you have issues with other lubricants or have trouble staying wet, you need this in your life. It’s so worth it."


What's more, this lube doesn’t stain, cleans up easily with soap and water, and, since it’s silicone-based (as opposed to being water-based like other lubes), it works and lasts even when you’re in the bath, pool, or hot tub! Can you literally feel the sexual horizons expanding?

At less than 15 bucks, this product is a tad more expensive than your run-of-the-mill drugstore lubricant, but it's still nearly half the price of some high-end lubes, like Überlube. Is it worth it? Thousands of enthusiastic Amazon customers seem to think so. And since you only have to use a small amount to reap the benefits (and there’s no need to reapply), one bottle will last long enough that you’ll surely get your money’s worth. Plus, as one reviewer put it, “while much more expensive, [it] is higher quality, much more effective and more pleasurable to use. My wife and I use much less Penchant than [a cheaper] version. It has just the right viscosity for happy, happy fun times. The moral of the story is not to skimp on lube.” (Related: The Best Lube for Any Sex Scenario)

And as with seemingly everything else regarding this lube, the bottle is pretty awesome, too. The packaging is neutral and discreet and doesn’t scream “sex liquid”, so you won’t be left red-faced if your house cleaner or grandma happen to stumble across it in your drawer.

So, do you absolutely need this lube? To put it as eloquently as yet another satisfied customer did, “Yes, yes and yes.”
