One of the last things I ever really thought to replace in my “beauty” cabinet was personal lubricant. I’ll venture to guess that it may not have crossed your mind either. But let’s face it, we all have sex and we’ve all used lubricant. I’m actually somewhat surprised that I didn’t find this stuff sooner as my, err, girly parts tend to be extra sensitive, so I sought out long ago to find something that was less harsh on my skin. When I look at the ingredients on something conventional, I’m aghast. “They expect people to put that WHERE?”
Propylene Glycol, parabens, ALCOHOL. No wonder this stuff was giving me an adverse reaction, because there’s just nothing natural about that stuff. Gross. So as a joke, Kathy and I like to find the most ludicrous thing we can think of and see if they make it in an organic version. And that’s how I stumbled upon Firefly Organics. I wish I would have found this stuff years ago. While the name says organics, the product itself is technically not organic, BUT, all the ingredients are completely all natural and preservative free. There is nary a paraben nor polymer to be found in this bottle. In fact, Firefly is so safe, that you don’t even have to wash it off if you don’t want to (and really, have you ever tried to wash off conventional lube? Forget it).
What can I say about this stuff? I love it. When I first opened the bottle it reminded me a lot of olive oil. The feel of it isn’t at all sticky or overly greasy. A little goes a long way and unlike conventional lubricants, it doesn’t get tacky over time, so you never need more. The aloe vera soothes so there’s no burning afterward. This is just an all around great product. I’ll never use anything else. And dare I say that it makes me want to get randy more often. And being pregnant while chasing around a toddler, that’s saying something.
Get it: You can order Firefly Organics directly from their website. A bottle retails for $18.95, but it’s a big bottle and it should last you a long time. Unless of course, you party like a rock star. In which case, better get a few bottles.
