I love pomegranate. No, seriously, I love pomegranate anything. Onyx jokes that I have a pomegranate fetish, and I kind of agree. Give me anything pomegranate and I’m happy: juice, pomosas, shampoo, lotion, perfume, etc. so when I saw that Babeland had a Pomegranate Vanilla flavored lube that is ALSO glycerin-free and paraben-free there was no way I was passing up the opportunity to review it.
Some of my pomegranate products.
I got the lube and the first thing I did was smell it, immediately I was in pomegranate heaven! The smell is divine and absolutely perfect, the first pomegranate lube I’ve ever smelled and so delicious, just like it’s name! Unfortunately, the taste leaves something to be desired as there isn’t really much of a taste at all, it’s kind of tasteless until you get a bit of a burst of after-flavor from the smell in your mouth. It’s good, though, and (delicious pomegranate flavor aside) I like it a lot better than most flavored lubes because the taste isn’t super strong or disgusting like a lot of flavored lubricants out there.
Flavored lubes are great for oral, especially with a condom to reduce on that latex taste, and just in general to add additional flavor, so I used this on Onyx briefly the other night. BabeLicious Lube is more gel-like than most water-based lubes which means it’s nice and thick but it also means it feels more gel-like in your mouth. When using my mouth on his cock after applying the lube I found the lube left a bit of a layer in my mouth as well, which wasn’t unpleasant but was definitely different. I thought it added to the blowjob, and may be great for someone who has issues with drymouth or something like that.
I found that when stroking with the lube it tended to soak into the skin rather quickly, though it still left a layer on his cock which added to the overall experience, but it didn’t stay wet the entire time, which was a little annoying. Having to re-apply lube isn’t something I’m not used to (yes, double-negative, I know) especially because I favor water-based lube that is also glycerin-free. Glycerin-free water-based lube tends to need re-applying more frequently because it doesn’t have that glycerin to make it super slick or cause yeast infections.
Comparatively against other glycerin-free lubes it holdes up very well, but if you’re used to using water-based lubes with glycerin and don’t care about glycerin in lubes potentially causing yeast infections you may not like this lube. However, if you’re like me and don’t like to get glycerin or sugars near your cunt (although I do love me some food play, but I try to keep the sugary stuff above the waist) you are going to love the subtle flavor of the BabeLicious Lube as well as the thicker consistency.
