K-Y Jelly (from Durex) Lubricant – Water Based Lube | Full Review

This page is available in:



Most of the Durex-branded lubricants are made specifically for use during private fun-time and are heavy on the silicone, which isn’t suitable for use with menstrual cups. However, Durex is also the company that brings us K-Y Jelly, which is water-based and has a bit more of a clinical appearance to its packaging compared to the hot-and-heavy Durex-labeled lubes.

K-Y Jelly Personal Lubricant is the #1 doctor-recommended brand of lubricant in the USA. It’s made to gentle and safe to use. And it’s recommended by gynecologists, according to the label. It’s fragrance-free, non-greasy and easy to wash off.

Reviewers say Durex’s K-Y Jelly works well, but the cap makes a loud snapping sound when it opens and closes. Some users concerned that roommates will know what’s up every time they open a tube of K-Y. It also gets sticky after you use it for a while, but that’s more of an issue if you’re using K-Y for sex rather than for insertion of a menstrual cup.


The bottom line:

  • Well-known, trusted brand
  • Easily available just about anywhere
  • Contains glycerin
  • Can get unpleasantly sticky during use
  • Easy to wash off
