Gun oil - silicone based lube by Empowered Products - review by Vanessa Weiss

So Smooth

A classic silicone based lube that'll give you the ride (or hand job) of your life with minimal fuss, minimal mess. A little lasts forever and the velvety, barely-there feeling is incredible!
No smell, no taste, long lasting, feels great, super slippery
Not compatible with silicone toys

useful review


This silicone-based lubricant (which also includes vitamin E and aloe-leaf extract) is excellent for … well, anything for which you desire nice, slippery, long-lasting lubrication. A teeny tiny bit goes a very long way, and the best thing about it is that it doesn't feel wet. Just lubricated, if that makes any sense.

Do not use this with silicone-based toys, but feel free to use it with anything else you might want to lube up!

This stuff is great for hand jobs, I've discovered, and also works nicely for both anal and vaginal penetration. My partner tells me that it works fabulously for jacking off, as well, and I trust his expert opinion on that subject.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Gun Oil has a very interesting texture to it. It's not thick and slippery and wet like many silicone lubes—in fact, it doesn't feel wet at all! Just super, super slippery. It's a very interesting sensation, especially if you are used to thicker lubricants feeling quite wet and heavy; this is very, very light. But don't let that fool you—this is some heavy-duty, super slippery lube that will get the job done right.

It's almost velvety or silky to the touch, and maintains all the nice texture of skin-to-skin contact while providing super-slick glide.

Taste / Aroma

This lube has no discernible taste or smell which makes it great for just about anything. Since it is unscented and unflavored, it's great for people who just want straight up lubrication, no extras.
    • No smell
    • No taste


Gun Oil is an excellent lubricant for most uses—it provides a slick, slippery feel while remaining almost "dry" to the touch. No goopy, wet, or thick feeling so to be honest; it's more like adding a slippery coating to your anatomy (or toys) without feeling like you are coated. It lasts a VERY long time, and a little goes a long way.

As with most silicone lubricants, to completely get rid of the slippery feeling you will need to wash with soap and water.

This is a silicone-based lube and as such is not compatible with silicone toys.
    • Not compatible with all materials


Gun Oil comes in a very utilitarian bottle with a bullet-shaped cap simply labeled GUN OIL on the front. The bottle I bought has an extremely handy pump dispenser—once the covering cap is off, there is no fussing with a screw on screw off cap with slippery hands!
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Minimal
Follow-up commentary
Gun Oil is on the fast track to becoming the standard lubricant in this household. It's got a great texture, great lasting power and it doesn't feel sloppy. Honestly this is an amazing hand job lube and I appreciate that quite a bit. It's got no ingredients that make me itch or burn, so everything is smooth sailing.
