Unpopular opinion: I am not someone who generally uses lube.
I wholeheartedly support and encourage lube purchase and use; I have about seven bottles of it on my nightstand and countless samples stored with my condoms… But unless I am engaging in anal play, I don’t need lube. I’m lucky. My body produces enough natural lubricant that I don’t need to worry about using lube but I am not in the majority when it comes to vag-owners. However, I do like knowing about lubes and being able to recommend them to people, so when Peepshow Toys offered me Migliori to review, I took them up on it.
HOW THIS LUBE WORKS
I received the 30mL bottle of Migliori, which (as with the 100mL) is shaped like a teardrop. The lid is a hard plastic coated in silver finish with a black pump head coming out of a silver plastic top. The lube itself is contained in a glass bottle, the front of which reads “Migliori; only the “finest” will do”1Migliori means finest in Italian so it’s sort of a play on words, I guess. and says the size on the bottom. The back provides the website, directions for use (“Apply to skin where and when needed”), and ingredients: Dimethiconol, Cyclemethicone, Dimethicone, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B6. The vitamins make this particular lube unique, compared to other silicone lubes I am more familiar with like Uberlube and Sliquid Silver.
Silicone lubes are hypoallergenic. They have no smell or taste, they don’t need any preservatives, and they last much longer than water-based lubes which are absorbed into the skin. Because Migliori is silicone-based, it could be ideal for longer sessions.
HOW I USE THIS LUBE
Since liquid silicone can chemically interact with solid silicone (aka silicone lube with a silicone dildo), I won’t use silicone lube with my silicone toys. I know certain toys are safe with silicone lube, but I refuse to take that chance. Besides, now I have dedicated lube that I can use with my awesome glass toys.
Compared to other silicone lubes that I use regularly, Migliori is much thicker. It doesn’t spread as quickly and is sort of ‘pillowy.’ It feels a touch thicker than Sliquid Sassy, a lube designed to provide more “cushioning” for anal use. To compare them directly, I put a splotch of Sassy in one hand and a splotch of Migliori in the other. Migliori did last longer, Sassy caused friction a lot sooner. Interestingly, Migliori doesn’t last as long as my experiences with Uberlube (my preferred silicone lube). Whenever I use Uberlube, even with less than half a sample packet, it stays on my skin for like the next 12 hours even if I rub at it a lot whereas Migliori seems to rub into my skin. The company claims that it can be used as a moisturizer, but I disagree; it seems to make skin smoother but not actually moisturized. Plus, my days working at an all natural cosmetics store make me wary of using silicone as a moisturizer or primer since it can clog the pores on your face.
I can’t speak to how this lube works vaginally because I don’t need lube for vaginal penetration. I tried it, and I noticed absolutely no difference compared to not using lube. Rubbing Migliori on random parts of my body makes it seem like it doesn’t last as long as other silicone lubes I am familiar with, but it does leave a smooth feeling behind. Anally, it’s kind of weird. I didn’t notice a huge difference compared to other lubes but my partner described it as “damp” and “like an oil slick” which is not very sexy. He preferred it for handjobs/penile stroking rather than anal sex.
Migliori is an okay lube. It’s a bit pricier than other silicone lubes on the market but it’s also a lot thicker. If you’re looking for a silicone lube for anal or if you’d rather stop taking vitamins and combine that regimen into your sex life by absorbing them via your skin, 2?? Is that a thing?? then go for it, I guess. You can purchase Migliori lube from Peepshow Toys for $17.95 for a 30mL bottle, or $31.95 for 100mL. If you’d prefer a thick water-based lube to use without worry with silicone toys, I’d recommend Sliquid Sassy. If you just want a much longer lasting silicone lube, I think Sliquid Silver does that job better.
