This week, Laura and Joelle are joined by Cheryl Sloane, Brand Manager of Überlube. Überlube, was a quest that began in 2002, and was created with sex in mind. Überlube is batched, tested, and bottled in a Chicago-area facility and currently only three people know the formula. Ultimately, when you use Überlube you are using a product that’s all about helping you feel and be your best, and its first job is to make you feel amazing. You can find Überlube locally in Andersonville at Early to Bed and Cowboys and Astronauts as well as online at uberlube.com
“When Überlube first came out, it was radically different from anything else on the market. It was so beautiful … It really changed the marketplace.”
