Swiss Navy Water Based Lube Review

Swiss Navy Water Based Lube Review

Last Updated on

When choosing a lube to try next, I primarily look for two things.  How well it lubricates, and how much it costs.  I had heard a lot of great things about Swiss Navy and wanted to give it a look for myself.  So, is it worth the hype?  More importantly, is it worth your money?  Let’s find out in our Swiss Navy Water Based Lube Review.

Swiss Navy Water Based Lube Review – What I Like

Extra Thick

If I had to choose between a water and silicone lube, I’d choose water based, hands down.  The natural feel and overall comfort is truly unmatched compared to silicone lubes.

This is because water based lubes act and feel like the natural lubrication your body makes on its own. This makes for some truly ecstasy inducing orgasms.

Swiss Navy Water Based Lube Review Consistency

Swiss Navy, feels natural and is a pleasure to use. It is thick, dense and has really weight to it.  It is more like a jelly than a lubricant and simply feels like it’s heavy duty and cut out for the job.

I am really picky when it comes to consistency, and this feels thick and clean without the stereotypical grumpiness that goes with a lot of other products.

It Glides

What makes Swiss Navy Water special is that even though it lacks the silicone found in other silicone-water hybrid products, the lubrication feeling would have you think different!  This means you get the feeling of a hybrid lube, but in a 100% silicone base.

It easily glides over the skin and thus makes things like entry much easier.  The feeling stacks up well to other hybrids, especially when paired up with products like Elbow Grease H2O and Shibari it performs very well.  In the end, maximum slipperiness is what any good lube should have.

Easy Clean-Up

Since Swiss Navy is primarily made up of water, it is a cinch to clean up.  Other silicone lubes like Pjur last forever, but can be a pain to clean off, usually needing hot water and a few rounds of soap to get everything off completely.  

With Swiss Navy This wasn’t the case.  All it takes is a quick rinse under some running water and it was completely gone.

“Other silicone lubes usually need hot water and a few rounds of soap to get everything off.”

The downside to this though is if you are planning to have sex in the shower or anywhere else with water, it will definitely wash away quickly.  In that case, you should probably find something else.

The Pump

This is one feature I think every product needs to have.  I think I speak for a lot of people who don’t want to mess with a cap.  It is a hassle to have to unscrew with two hands and fumble around with.

I am also not a fan of those click caps.  They always get sticky and are a pain to open.

Pumps are great.  I can reach over without even touching the bottle, quickly use one hand and get a perfectly portioned amount of lube, and get back to business.  I know pumps are not the prettiest solution, but the tradeoff in usability is well worth it.

Generous Portions

I always say that you can never use too much lube, and I use A LOT.   As a result, I usually end up burning through my supply pretty quickly.  I like Swiss Navy because it comes in standard 8oz bottles.

That is big.

For what you pay per ounce, it works out to be very affordable, especially considering how long one bottle will last you.

What I Don’t Like

It Dries Out Quickly

As the name suggests, the Swiss Navy Water variant is made up in large part of – you guessed it – water.  And as we all know water evaporates.  It also gets absorbed by the skin easily.  This means that you are going to have to reapply for longer sessions, I am not a big fan of.

“Having to stop and lube up takes away from the atmosphere.”

The evaporation problem is fairly standard for most water based lubricants, but it is annoying.  Having to stop and lube up takes away from the atmosphere.  It doesn’t take very long, but it is still something you are going to have to deal with.

Sticky Sticky Sticky

Fresh out of the bottle, this lube feels great.  It’s clean, thick and smooth.  But, after you are done it is a different story.

It is dried up and you are left with this stick residue that tends to ball up on your skin.  And it is sticky. This is from the water evaporating, leaving the thicker base. You can easily bring the lube back to life though with some water (or spit), but again, this can break up the action. But this is a trade off you need to make with any water based lube.

Swiss Navy Silicone Review

If Silicone is more your style, Swiss Navy has a comparable Silicone Variant which is a bit pricier, but is still one of my favorite lubes I have tested. You can read more in the full review here.

Swiss Navy Water Review – The Verdict

As a lube, Swiss Navy does a lot right.  It is easy to apply, super slippery and has a great consistency.  For being a great lubricant, it succeeds.  It is not perfect, and still suffers that same problem as many water lubes when it comes to longevity and being prone to drying out.  

But on the other hand, if you are looking for something a bit different than your standard Astroglide then this is probably the best alternative when it comes to durability and comfort.

    I’m a big fan of Swiss Navy Water based lube. The deal is that silicon based lubes often cause me to break out, which ruins all the fun times for days, so water based is necessary. Also, the pump and convenient sizes make it a good go to. Most importantly, I ususally have issues with other water based lubes after they dry, causing a rash (I don’t know what it is since most silicon bases are made of the same stuff, but it really sucks) but I don’t get that with Swiss Navy ever. I’ve not tried their silicon based lubes (a little gun shy, for obvious reasons) but the water based is great and since play a lot in steam rooms, it’s works amazingly well.
