Thanks to the folks at System Jo, I’m back with a review of their newest flavored fruity lubes and I gotta admit, I love them!
Just like all of the water based lubes System Jo makes, these fun and fruity flavors are all latex safe, non staining, never get sticky or tacky, maintain their consistency, have a great taste with no after taste, contain no artificial sweeteners, and contain a very small amount of vegetable derived glycerin.
Also like all of the other products in the System Jo line, the packaging is discreet, professional and respectful while still maintaining a fun and flirty feel. To be honest, the packaging to me looks more like something you’d mix in a drink or put on desert, than something you’d use for sexual encounters.
System Jo Fruity Flavored Lube Review
Peachy Lips Water Based Lube (pictured left): I’ll be honest, I’ve tasted better, but I’ve also tasted much, much worse. The scent is light and sweet, almost like vanilla and something else, something fruity that you can’t quite put your finger on.
The flavor is subtle and slightly tangy while also being wonderfully candied. Having said that, it’s only a tad like peach. It’s not thick or goopy, has no after taste and doesn’t taste like medicine (something I’m always fearful of when it comes to flavored lubes). The formula is clear and slippery, doing a fantastic job of maintaining it’s consistency.
Final Grade: B+
Banana Lick Water Based Lube (pictured right): From the get go System Jo’s Banana Lick was one of my faves! The first whiff filled my nose with the heavy scent of a mixture of pear/lemon/vanilla, then upon smelling it again I got hit with the yummy scent of banana popsicles.
The taste is light, slightly syrupy, wonderfully sweet, and very much like what a banana flavored candy would taste like. Like the previous flavor, this one has no aftertaste and doesn’t leave you tongue feeling coated in goo. The formula is clear and slippery, doing a fantastic job of maintaining it’s consistency.
Final Grade: A+
Sweet Pomegranate Water Based Lube (pictured left): When I first saw that System Jo came out with a Pomegranate flavored lube I was very excited to see what it tasted like. Not only was it something I hadn’t tried before, but it was also a flavor I had never even seen as a lube. Fortunately, I was not let down. The scent was light, fragrant with fruit, slightly floral, and very appealing. That said, nowhere in the scent did I pick up Pomegranate.
The taste was again light, slightly syrupy, a little tangy, very sweet, though sadly nothing really like Pomegranate, instead tasting more like a candy or those red jujubes I used to love as a kid. It wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t the pomegrante flavor I had hoped for.
Like the others the formula was clear, slippery and did a fantastic job of maintaining its consistency.
Final Grade: B
Juicy Pineapple Water Based Lube (pictured right): While there are many Pina Colada lubes featuring flavors of pineapple and coconut on the market, System Jo’s Pineapple was the first I had seen singling out the flavor. As such, it was one that I was very eager to try. The scent was very much like the others – light, sweet, slightly tangy, somewhat like citrus and very appealing.
The taste, while sweet, very much reminded me of Pineapple rings in a can, you know, the ones in that sweet, watery syrup that taste almost deliciously fake. There was no aftertaste or slimy feeling left in my mouth or throat, and virtually no acidic burn on my tongue (unlike real Pineapple). There also wasn’t the heavy taste associated with most lubes.
As for the consistency, it lived up to the high standards I’ve associated with the System Jo brand, being very slippery, maintaining its consistency and doing a wonderful job of enhancing oral sex.
Final Grade: A+
When it comes to things I don’t like about the product, there is only one; the ingredients. While there aren’t enough chemicals in a bottle to seriously harm you, nor enough to cause any worry or concern, I would of course prefer to offer a product that is completely organic or “natural” as that is something I am growing more conscious of. That said, I still love System Jo products and find them to be some of the best I’ve ever used. Also, when it comes to lubes quite a few of them contain the same ingredients so I can’t really give the folks at System Jo a hard time, especially when there are much, much worse lubricants on the market.
As I’ve said before, I’m a huge fan of System Jo products; they’ve always be wonderful to use, never caused me any problems with yeast infections (or other infections), always maintained their consistency – never getting sticky, tacky or thick – been very affordable and tasted amazing! With that in mind I’m very happy to report that the new flavors they came out with not only lived up to my expectations, but also somewhat surpassed them. I’ll admit, it’ll be hard for other companies to follow in their footsteps!
For those of you that don’t really like the flavors mentioned, keep in mind that System Jo also makes another 8 flavors; Lemon Splash (tart, tangy, slightly acidic, refreshing and very tasty), Watermelon (sweet but tart, very much like watermelon Jolly Ranchers), Strawberry Kiss (sweet, light, fruity and candy like), Raspberry Sorbet (sweet and very much like raspberry), Cherry (a little heavy, very rich and cherry cough syrup like – my least favorite), Tropical Passion (tangy, sweet, a little heavy, very exotic and fairly tart), Tangerine Dream (sweet, refreshing, very yummy and very much like a orange creamsicle – my second fave!) and finally Chocolate (deliciously fragrant and fragrant of chocolate – there’s no missing this flavor which is why it’s my ultimate fave!) Yes I really have tried all of them!
