    I have sensative skin and have found that the Sliquid lubes are good.

    I've tried these ones:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=15951 medium thickness lube

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=21186 very slippery, I can smell the seaweed a bit too much... but I have a particular disliking to Nori.

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=13181 thicker than the other two but not too thick feeling that it'll block sensations.

    I've also tried the Pink lubes:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=22322 medium thickness lube, but has a strange taste.

    Good Clean Love seems to be good too:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=22383 very thick lube, more like a gel.

    I've found Durex Aloe Vera to be an ok lube:


    I haven't gotten a long with Liquid Silk, at first it was ok, but over time my body started to dilike it.

    I have to agree with Nymph in that the Sliquid lubes are great they are organic, a good thinkness, and I have never had any irritation even though I do have sensitive skin, the other one I like is the Durex Aloe one but I ldon't find it as long lasting, and the aquaglide gel also good.

    Another vote for Sliquid. I have to be really careful and the Sliquid Gel is great.

    Aye, the Sliquid stuff is lovely and mild, paraben-free, glycerin-free, all that lovely junk. They have a sampler set for a tenner if you want to experiment with the different types: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=22103

    If you already know you get along with ID Glide, might even be worth experimenting with different types of theirs. They have a 3 for 2 offer on them just now, so might be worth picking up a few of the sampler packs or small bottles at 'disposable' prices: www.lovehoney.co.uk/brands/id-glide/all/all/all/?orderby=5 I love the Millenium silicone lube, m'self, but if your skin's broken it can sting a little, and obviosuly it depends on what you're using it for/with whether silicone's even an option. But they do have plenty of other versions, might be some you've not tried. Experimentation is the best way. :)

    I'd try a silicone lube. People say they work out the same cost as you end up using less of them but I'm not so sure. Our constant Wet Platinum is 3 times the cost of liquid silk and I'd be surprised if we used 1/3rd of the amount.

    Despite this, its worth it. Mrs SXE seemed to become sensitive to liquid silk after a while and anything with Glycerin in gets dismissed instantly. We found Sliquid to be 'ok' but a bit sticky compared to others we've tried. They're still our only option for flavoured lubes, and the Vanilla Cherry is great.

    anything without glicerin, parabens, scents and colourings will be good

    the sliquid oceanics is one of my favorites http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=21186

    dosen't dry out or go sticky, no taste or smell to it and it is clear with fairly classy packaging.

    my fave is liquid silk http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=7163

    - i'd avoid the ID moments one - it's supposed to be for sensitive skin but made my skin really burn

    Also i like Tracy Cox's - never had any trouble with that http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=5329 (very runny though)

    I like Sliquid, but I seem to be going bit better on with the Lelo lube, especially for penetrative fun. I guess that it mixes better with my natural fluids, while Sliquid does not so well.The Lelo is also glycerine/paraben free, but I guess Sliquid is for even more sensitive skin. I generally cannot stand anything containing glycerine without starting to suffer yeast infection as result of changed Ph.
