Pink - lubricant by Empowered Products - review by Positwist

A Toybox Staple

For years Pink has been my go-to lube for shower/bath and marathon playtime. It's long-lasting, and it's hypo-allergenic. I'm extremely sensitive, but this lube doesn't sting, and doesn't promote infection.
Long-lasting, Hypo-allergenic, Condom-safe
Feels wierd in your mouth, Needs to be washed off with soap

extremely useful review
I was tired of reapplying water-based lubes every thirty seconds, so I picked up a bottle of Pink. Pink is a silicone-based lubricant. Silicone-based lubes feel viscous like oils- and just like oils, they don't rely on water to stay slick. Water-based lubes use glycerin or cellulose to "collect" water molecules. But as soon as the water molecules evaporate, the lube starts to feel tacky. Silicone-based lasts much, much longer because they contain hydrophobic silicone compounds. This means they repel water; they're slick in their own right, so they don't evaporate and leave your skin feeling tacky or sticky.

This is a hypo-allergenic lube, free of parabens, sugars, glycerin, and petro-chemicals. I've had bad reactions to more lubes than I can count, but Pink doesn't burn, sting, or promote yeast infections. Here's the ingredients:

Vitamin E
Aloe Vera

The ingredients with the chemicaly names are man-made silicone compounds. They're big, hydrophobic molecules, so they don't absorb into the skin well. This is good news: You don't want a bunch of silicone compounds leaking into your body. Allergic reactions to these compounds are rare, but always keep an eye on your body when you're trying new products.

Pink lasts SO LONG. It's a runny lube (beware of the mess!), and it feels a little more velvety than super-slick water-based lubes. Just a few drops will keep my glass toy slick for longer than I can keep track of. During PIV sex, I get at least 30 minutes of play before I have to reapply. One application is usually enough for a handjob or self-strokin' session, too. A bottle of this stuff lasts for a short eternity.

And, my favorite: Pink stays slick in the shower or tub. It doesn't wash off with water alone (that's because of those hydrophobic silicone compounds), so this is fantastic for playtime in water. And, as usual, it lasts a surprisingly long time, even under water.

Because these silicone compounds don't absorb into the skin, you'll need to wash Pink off with soapy water. If you use silicone lubes vaginally or anally, be advised that it won't wash off with water alone. Putting soap in your downtown orifices is a bad idea, though, so you'll have to let your body wash these out in its own time. If you don't like the idea of a lube that hangs around in your vag or butt, you might want to look for a water-based lube, which will wash off with water alone.

Pink is safe to use with latex and non-latex condoms (unlike oils, which can degrade latex). You can use it with any of your toys EXCEPT silicone toys (silicone lube can ruin silicone toys; the molecules sometimes bond with each other).

Pink doesn't have much of a taste or smell, but it feels pretty weird in my mouth. Because it doesn't dissolve in water, it doesn't dissolve in your mouth like water-based lubes, so you're left with a coating of silicone on your tongue. I don't recommend that you use this for oral (but it won't kill you if it happens!)

I haven't used Pink for anal, so if you're looking for more info check out this review from BurritoBabe for more on how Pink performs for anal play.
Follow-up commentary
I've been using Pink for years now. I still love it, and I've yet to have a partner who does not like it. I do not even bother looking at other silicone lubes anymore!

    Great review! I usually stick with water-based lubes for versatility but I think I'm going to have to give silicone lubes another go!
