Overview: Sliquid was founded on the idea of lubricants free from sugars (glycerine) and presaratives (parabens), neither of which are found naturally in the body and which many women and men are sensitive to.

Before I found natural lubricants such as sliquid, I used brands such as Durex which are very common and easy to obtain. However, just because lubricants are well known, this doesn't mean that they are body safe or skin kind. Therefore, since finding natural and organic lubricants I never use anything that is not on mine or my partners pubic area. I do use them on the rest of their body to simply use them up, after they have all been used up I will stick to skin safe lubricants.

The flavours of Sliquid lubricants I have are Strawberry Pomegranate and Pink Lemonade. These have been later introduced, before the flavours range consided of only three flavours. It's is great there is more choice, especially such exicting and unusual flavours as strawberry pomegranate and pink lemonade. 
Old packaging
Sliquid redesigned their packaging at the same time they introduced the new flavours and ranges, I much prefer the new packaging, it seems to suit the name more and looks more streamlined.

Many lubricants are too runny or too thick, neither of which are great, especially not for flavoured lubricants. The consistency is almost there but a little runny.

If the lubricant does start to dry up then you can add a small amount of water to moisten it up again. This is effective, however, I don't usually put that much on and then I lick it up straight away. This ability is much better used for intercourse lubricants, though you have to keep a glass of water handy.

These really are unusual flavours, which I had no previous experience of so I didn't really know what to expect. I have found other brands of flavoured lubricants to taste very artificial, so I presumed these would taste similar. However, although they taste slightly artificial, they do taste much milder and sweeter without being sickly unless in larger quantities.

The pink lemonade tastes lemons and pink grapefruit with just a little hint of fizz. It isn't an overwhelming taste but in larger quantities it does take sickly.

The strawberry pomegranate tastes of just that, though the strawberry is more of a prominent taste. The pomegranate gives it more of a sharp edge, though this seems to compliment the sweeter strawberry taste perfectly.

Both tastes are noticeable for all the right reasons and they add a new flavour to foreplay without stealing the show.

These are both water-based, non staining while being safe for toys and condoms. 

Sliquid promise that their products are free of DEA, Gluten, Glycerine, Glycerol, Parabens, PEG, Propylene Gylcol, Sorbitol and Sulphates... and are always 100% Vegan friendly. All of which don't sound particularly appealing to be putting on very sensitive areas.

Conclusion: I am very pleased that I have tried these, they have become a firm favourite and earned their place in our lubricants box. When my other lubricants run out I will start replacing them with either Sliquid or Lelo lubricants and products.

Purchase: You can buy the strawberry pomegranate here and the pink lemonade here.

The strawberry pomegranate was provided free from Lovehoney in exchange for an honest review. The pink lemonade was purchased.

I am quite ego-concious and I also love sex toys so this is the perfect eco-sex toy. 

Packaging: The solarstim bullet arrives in a cardboard box made entirely from recycled materials. The box is a green colour and has an outdoor and eco feel to it. Of course it can be easily recycled.

Appearance/Materials: There are two main parts to the solarstim, the solar panel and the bullet.
The solar panel is very light weight and thin, it is about the size of an ipod. It can be left around without raising suspicion as long as the bullet is either taken out or hidden.
The bullet is a silver (or black) small bullet, it is about 2inches long and has an led in the top which glows red when in use. The silver bullet is coated in silver plating which unfortunately does wear off over time leaving a dull silver material underneath.
The bullet connects to the solar panel via a wire which is then plugged in using a jack connection

Functions/Control/Volume: To charge the solar panel simply leave it on the windowsill in the morning and by bed time it should be fully charged. It takes around 8 hours to charge completely and gives around 60 minutes of use. There is an led in the side which glows blue when it is charging so you are never in doubt. It also doesn't need direct sunlight or even a bright day. I charged it fully on a dull day. An improvement would be an indicator showing the charge level. Although the bullet can be used when it is charging I am not sure how this affects the longevity of the solar panel and so haven't done this often. There are no instructions regarding this.

The power this bullet outputs is very good, it would easily rival battery powered toys, even those that run on AAA or even AA batteries. The switch on the side on the solar panel controls the vibrations and ranges from low to high. High is very powerful. It feels like it only has two settings; high and max. 

The vibrations travel well and are very concentrated in the tip. When used on it's side the vibrations weren't quite intense as on the tip. 

Cleaning/Maintenance: This cannot be sterilised due to the material. If you want to insert it is suggested that you use a condom so you don't tug on the wire, this is one of the main reasons for bullets breaking. To clean simply wipe over with a baby wipe or a sex toy wipe.

Conclusion: The solarstim bullet is a great toy for the eco-minded and sex toy lovers alike. It is also powerful and quiet. So you can feel like you are saving the world one orgasm at a time, eco-orgasmic!
