Recently I partnered with The Natural Love Company and I cannot say enough good things about them. They were kind enough to send me a box full of products to review and I’m excited to share my findings. I love everything about TNLC, from their amazing environmental policies, to their clean aesthetics and branding. The products are lovely and the people are great. In fact, it’s such a great fit, I am now a monthly contributor on their website’s blog. You can read my first article here.


At First Glance

I’m a sucker for packaging, and I love the TNLC look and feel. The soothing green shade they use throughout their product line is lovely and evokes the natural feel. All of the TNLC design elements are understated, unobrusive, neutral and modern. Leave this lube on the nightstand, it won’t draw attention to itself, but it will still look good standing there. 

“Simply Lube bottles are made from 100% plant-based compostable plastic. The pump lid is 100% reusable or can be disassembled and recycled. Simply Lube is also vegan friendly and cruelty free. All our toys and lubricants are shipped with discreet, plastic free packaging as standard.We also, on your behalf, fund the planting of a tree for every bottle sold, so far we’ve planted over 4,00 trees!”

This lube is gorgeous

Lube seems to get a bad rap, when it is actually one of the hardest working items in your sex toy drawer. The trouble is, many lubes on the market suck. They’re made with all kinds of yucky chemicals and additives, things that aren’t great for your delicate skin or for your natural pH. The ingredients list on this lube 100% pass the vibe check. This is a fresh, clean, natural lube that you can feel good about using. And did I mention it feels amazing?

Oh damn, she thick

I have used a lot of different water-based lubes over the years. In general, water-based lubes are my favourite kind because they are always toy compatible and they are the easiest to clean up and wash off. 

The Natural Love Company’s Simply Lube performed incredibly well.

It was basically impervious to everything. It stayed thick and smooth with no stickiness or change in texture. It did not breakdown and even in long and rigorous sessions, no re-application was needed. It felt very soft and nourishing, my skin definitely felt softer after using it – this was especially evident on my hands after a lengthy hand job. 

Bang for Your Buck

At the time of this review, this lubricant was priced at $19.95 CAD for 100ml. Considering how far this product goes and how well it lasts it’s a great price and excellent value.

Simply Lube Earns the Fawkes’ Faves Seal of Approval

I love this lube. I love everything about it. I tend to use lubes in phases, moving from brand to brand over time. The Natural Love Company’s Simply Lube is one that I don’t think I will part with anytime soon, nor do I think it could be usurped by another. You may think that the perfect water-based lube does not exist … but now you know better!
