When I received Aloe Cadabra’s French Lavender Personal Lubricant, I was ecstatic. At 2.5 ounces the white bottle was small enough to stash in my nightstand drawer and the box it came in was decorative and feminine. It smells delicious and has a great consistency, so I expected it to work perfectly. But ultimately, while it works as a lubricant, it ended up being too runny and needed to be applied too often. So, while it might be great for light sex, it couldn’t stand the test of time. I’d still recommend it as a decent, body-safe lube for gentle play.

The scent is the biggest draw for me; the soft lavender scent is heavenly and not overbearing. It easily squeezes out of the bottle and stays put in your hand almost like lotion, it’s not runny or watery and the scent is actually a bit more muted on the body which is good considering not everyone feels the same way I do about their nether regions smelling of sweet lavender.
Unpleasant Taste & Timing
While the fragrance and consistency is nice, the taste is on the opposite end of the spectrum. It’s very unpleasant, almost as though you’re licking scented hand lotion. It is slick at first and then absorbs completely, great if you just need a helping hand to get started but can allow your body to take over from there. It was gone in a matter of minutes actually, prompting me to choose something else that would allow me to maintain some slick.
Pros & Cons
- 95% Organic
- Soft floral scent
- Absorbs cleanly/no mess
- No parabens, glycerine, petroleum
- Needed to be re-applied almost immediately, less than six minutes
- Soft floral scent might not be for everyone
- Not suitable for rough sex or anal
- Tastes awful
I find this product to almost be more moisturizing rather than lubricating, and the taste was a big turn off. Organic is nice to think about, but in this case, not entirely practical. While I’d recommend another lube for most types of play, you might still like this for gentle foreplay, as it’s a body-safe alternative to other types of lube.
