We have tested a lot of water based lubes (and I mean a lot) and theses are our final picks.  Here is our list from reader picks, MQ Store top sellers, and our own favorites for the best water based lube.

Best Water Based Lube

Swiss Navy Water Based Lube

I first discovered Swiss Navy from a number of readers who personally recommend it to me, which is the main reason why I initially tested it out.

Aside from the fact that Swiss Navy has remained among the 3 top selling lubes on the MQ Store for the past two years, after trying it for myself it quickly became clear why.

Swiss Navy Water Lube Review

As a pure, odorless, smooth gel Swiss Navy is one of the best feeling water lubes I have ever tried.  It also is comparatively durable and lasts longer than other water based products.

I have to tip my hat to the bottle design as the pump cap means easy application with one hand and no need to fiddle with a top.  If you are looking for a high-quality product with a good balance or performance and price then give Swiss Navy a go.

MQ Reader Review:
“When I tried this lube not only did it feel excellent, but it didn’t leave a sticky feeling afterward. It felt wonderful during sex. A little goes a long way and I will happily go back and pay for another bottle.”

Best Premium Water Based Lube

Pjur Original Aqua Body Glide

I have been a long time fan of Pjur and have tested almost every variant of the brand. In nearly every case I have been very satisfied, and here is no different.


My one complaint funny enough, speaks to the slipperiness oh my hands when trying to take the cap on and off.  In terms of feel, performance and longevity, Pjur is the best water based lube you can buy now.


Generally, when using other water based lubes the biggest issue for me is the sub-par consistency and lubrication when compared to silicone counterparts.

MQ Reader Review:
Must have for everyone! – “This is hands down the best lube ever! It has no messy stickiness, no smell, and best of all no taste….so if you go from having sex to giving head there is no nasty flavor to deal with.” – n&m

Here, Pjur has done a great job designing a water lube that FEELS like a silicone one and that’s a good thing!  In all categories, feeling, lubrication and overall quality, this is by far the best water based lube out there.

Longest Lasting

Elbow Grease H2O Thick Gel

Elbow Grease H2O Water Based Lube

If you are looking for a heavy duty, high performance, and long lasting lube then you have found it.

I have H2O featured as my number one pick on my list of Longest Lasting Lubes because, in terms of sheer longevity and endurance, Elbow Grease H2O simply lasts the longest without the need to re-apply making it another best water based lube on our list.

MQ Reader Review:
Great for anal play! – “I really like the thickness of this lube. It stays where you put it and isn’t runny like most lubes. It worked really well for anal play too!”

Outside of sex, Elbow Grease H2O is also an ideal pick for toys, especially if you and to go a bit bigger or to cut down on friction.

Elbow Grease is also a breeze to clean up and washes away quickly without leaving any residue behind, despite the fact that this is one of the purest, thickest water lubes I have ever tested.  All around a fantastic product.

Best Value Water Based Lubes

Smooth and Slick

Smooth and Slick Water Lube

First off, despite being listed as a “Value Lube” Smooth and Slick feels great.  Yes, it doesn’t have the amount of polish and premium ingredients as some of the other product on this list. But what you do get is above average performance for an affordable lube.

MQ Reader Review:
Just Right Smooth & Slick Lubricant – “Wife loves this lubricant. Just the right amount of slick. Not too much, not too little. In addition, a great price.”

Above all, Smooth and Slick actually performs well!  I keep this as a backup lube because I know I can use as much as a want without having to feel guilty.

In terms of price and value, it is the best water based lube in its category.

Climax Bursts Tingling

Climax Bursts Tingling Water Lube

For a water based lube with a bit more of a kick, Climax Bursts is the best for an added sensation.  The main variant comes with “bursting” beads which add a tingling sensation that makes using it more fun.

The pack of three includes the tingling sensation, plus a bottle of cooling and a bottle of warming to give even more variety.

If you are tired of the same-old plain lube, and are looking to mix things up, these sensations really do help to make sex more interesting.
