All Natural Lube
The Butters is an all-natural lube. It combines 6 of the world’s most nutrient-rich oils and butters with organic aloe for a slick, long lasting ride that leaves you soft & clean.
The Butters was created as a solution to three problems in my life: chronic ashiness, dry hair, and most importantly, a lack of quality lube made for the sex I have. There are lots of products that solve the first two well enough, but I’ve never found a lube that’s beneficial to every orifice, non-toxic, plays well with lots of toy materials, won’t stain sheets, tastes good, is pregnancy-safe, and carries a reasonable price.

As my readers will know I don’t often review lubes. If I do they tend to have been provided in a package with something else, or they are something I feel is really special. This “lube” falls into the second category. Now although its own website calls it a lube I feel bad just referring to it as lube because it is soooooo much more than that. It is hypoallergenic, vegan, only tested on humans, Ph-balanced, clean drying, edible, has a neutral taste and smell, totally safe for internal use (vagina, anus, pregnancy-safe), amplifies natural lubrication, safe for pets and babies, non-toxic, and is produced/packed/stored to very high standards.
I love this stuff. The scent is slightly nutty but not overpowering. The texture is light rather than being overly solid, I assume this is due the ingredients being ‘whipped’. It is really moisturising, and while it is oil based I didn’t find it at all greasy. It soaked in nicely leaving my skin wonderfully soft and smooth.
According to the website The Butters can be used for many different things. Such as:
- Hair & Skin Conditioner
- Personal Lubricant
- Massage Lotion
- Face Cleanser
- Makeup Remover
- Wood & Leather Cleaner/Conditioner
- Hot Oil Treatment
- Shaving Lubricant
- Beard Conditioner
- Skin Protector
- Tattoo Aftercare
I’ve used it for quite a few of these. I’ve used it as a lube (obviously ;D), massage lotion, for shaving, as moisturiser, on new tattoo, and to remove waterproof mascara. I really loved it for shaving, I learnt very quickly you need to rinse the razor in really hot water but you get a lovely close and smooth shave. I also found I had less of an issue with shaving rash, and itchiness.
As a lube I used it with quite a few toys made from a variety of materials. On my glass dildo it was very slippery, I managed to push the dildo out of me even more easily than normal. I liked the feel of it on my wooden dildo, it was lubricated without being too slick. Plus it almost felt like it was conditioning the wood. It also worked nicely on my silicone dildo without leaving any residue.
I found when using it for hand jobs I had to use more so it didn’t soak in too quickly, but it felt great and because it warmed up in my hand it lasted for ages. With internal (vaginal) use it seemed to add to my natural juices keeping things moving easily. Now it does state clearly on the label it is unsuitable for use with latex, so be aware if you are using latex condoms. However, I used it with non-latex condoms (skyn) without an issue, I didn’t notice any breaking down of the material.
I did notice a slight change in the scent after it had been opened four weeks, the smell got a bit more nutty, and slightly dusty smelling. Not dirty dust but that type of scent. It’s not a bad scent just a change to note. The Butters should have a shelf life of no less than 6 months at room temp. If you keep it in the fridge, it lasts pretty much indefinitely.
I loved The Butters. It has so many uses plus it’s all natural and animal friendly. I can’t wait to try some of the other products in the range. The coffee body scrub sounds amazing.
