We break it down into 5 main categories so that the next time you run out, you’d pop down to Vibez with confidence in exactly the lube you need to make sure all gears are running smoothly.


The king of lubes would have to be water-based lubricants! It is ideal for vaginal, male masturbation, and perfect for use with sex toys.

○ Made from water, water based lubes can be used with any material and offer a light, natural feel when used.

○ Water-based lubes won't stain the bed sheets, they are 100% safe to use with condoms, and they won’t interfere with contraception. Also important to note, water-based won’t muddy the surface of your ever faithful vibrator – something that’s VERY significant for you lovely ladies (and gentlemen) out there to know.

○ A couple of minor downsides would be that it will eventually dry as it’s absorbed through the skin.
