Organic aloe lube review & giveaway!

Soccer Dad and I dimmed the lights, lit a few candles and lathered on the lube. My first reaction was to the scent. The bottle was labeled French Lavendar and had a familiar sweet smell.

"Does it smell like Fruit Loops?" I asked while Soccer Dad continued his stringent testing regiment.

He nodded but did not slow down. Fruit Loops is not an offensive smell—maybe not the sexiest smell—but certainly nothing to spoil your sex session over. The only real problem with the scent is that is got me thinking about food.

The lube wasn't sticky and seemed to lubricate my vagina with ease. Soccer Dad gave it the taste test as well. Just like the smell, he thought it tastes almost fruity, like citrus. This was unexpected, but definitely not bad. A woman could do far worse than to taste like fresh fruit.

Most important of all, the lube lasted as long as we needed it too and kept us both from chafing. Also, the natural ingredients make the lube perfectly safe to ingest or to use with condoms. With any luck Aloe Cadabra will help overpower that icky, condom taste - next trial run I guess.

  • Aloe Cadabra

My usual mentality when it comes to lube is to go with the cheapest product. It is easy to forget that using these lubes during sex can be just as detrimental as if you had ingested them. Sugary lubes never taste like the flavors they are advertised as and their high sugar content can cause yeast infections. Oil based lubes are useless. Not only are they made up of similar chemicals as engine oil, but they compromise condom integrity, destroy rubber sex toys, and leave permanent stains on your upholstery. This is why I was eager to test drive Aloe Cadabra. The product contains 95% organic aloe vera and is enriched with Vitamin E. It is also free of parabens, glycerin, and petroleum.
